The power couple discusses Captain America: Civil War (00:47) and the upcoming Mary Poppins movie (20:36).

GeekChew No. 27: Bitch Planet #5/Batman #44/A-Force #4

The power couple discusses Bitch Planet #5 from Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine De Landro, a book published by Image Comics. We talk about the series to date and how important it is to the medium and to us personally. We look at the storyline, but also how effectively the creators are using every part of a comic book to make an important statement/call to action. We also talk briefly about Batman #44, a one-shot detective story arc from Scott Snyder and JOCK that draws a lot of parallels to many of the important social issues that come to the fore again and again in today's society. We take another short detour to talk about A-Force, from G. Willow Wilson and Marguerite Bennett, a super fun series that ties into the Secret Wars event at Marvel. Finally, we choose a new show for the fall TV season to follow and discuss: Blindspot on NBC, Monday's @ 10 EST for anyone who wants to follow along!
