This week we talk about the new Netflix original movie War Machine (5:04), episodes 4 and 5 of American Gods (17:56), and A.D. After Death (29:44) by Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire.
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!
The power couple discusses the first season of The Flash on the CW. We also talk about the Image Comics series Wytches, written by Scott Snyder with art by JOCK. The outstanding horror series just wrapped up its initial 6-issue arc. Notables this week include some Spider-Gwen apparel from welovefine.com and the upcoming Suicide Squad movie.
Episode 4 is in the books - the (mostly) undead episode! We talk about Vertigo Comics American Vampire, the super creepy Afterlife with Archie, and Hollywood's increasing need to revisit age-old fairy tales.
