About this Episode

Black Widow is finally getting her own solo movie in the MCU, and Wonder Woman's much anticipated sequel is coming soon. With female representation in comics and movies in mind, Matt and Tony decided to take a look at the Image Comics series Bitch Planet. Created by writer Kelly Sue DeConnick - whose work on Captain Marvel shaped the direction of her big screen portrayal - and artist Valentine De Landro, Bitch Planet follows the lives of a group of female inmates who have been exiled to the titular prison colony... in space! The comic is a feminist take on women-in-prison exploitation movies, dystopian tropes, and sci-fi sports action movies like The Running Man and Rollerball.
