This week we riff on invisibility for reasons unknown before we get into the new anthology series Bitch Planet: Triple Feature (21:51) and the last two episodes of the first season of American Gods (36:20).
It's a busy episode with the first Black Panther trailer (3:25), the new comic book Destroyer (8:42), episode 6 of American Gods (19:53), and the Wonder Woman movie (28:51).
The power couple discusses news out of San Diego Comic Con, mostly the trailers for the upcoming Wonder Woman (2:18) and Justice League (4:06) movies. We also talk about some of the Marvel stuff (7:38), from Captain Marvel to Thor: Ragnarok to Marvel on Netflix. We then jump to Bo Burnham's new comedy special on Netflix (14:31), the last two episodes from season six of Game of Thrones (12:25), Pokemon Go (14:31), and Star Trek Beyond (16:23). After that we dive into the new Netflix series Stranger Things (19:03), a fantastic new show created by the Duffer Brothers, with a great cast that includes Winona Ryder, David Harbour, and many more. Finally, we talk volume one of Monstress, a series from Image Comics written by Marjorie Liu with art by Sana Takeda (28:53).
The power couple focuses this week on the Godworld arc of Black Science, the book written by Rick Remender with art by Matteo Scalera, published by Image Comics. But first, in our week-in-review, we talk about watching Sailor Moon on Hulu (1:52) and share more Batman v. Superman news (4:05). We also cover NBC's live tv productions (7:21), Iron Fist on Netflix and in print (8:29), Gilmore Girls (10:37), the first arc of the newest DareDevil series by Charles Soule (12:02), images that have surfaced of movies currently in production (we're looking at you, Doctor Strange and Wonder Woman!)

In a rare foray into music, we also briefly discuss a newfound band (BABYMETAL) and their newly released sophomore effort (Metal Resistance) (20:37). After all that we dive into Black Science, specifically the 5-issue arc titled Godworld that just wrapped up this week with issue #21. With lots of creativity, introspection, and beautiful art, Remender and Scalera continue to take Black Science in interesting new directions.
