Geek Girl Riot’s getting Marvel-ous this week with an interview with Luke Cage creator Cheo Hodari Coker + a preview of season 2, plus a look at Cloak & Dagger!

Luke Cage is Back for S2 and “If it Ain’t Rough, it Ain’t Right”
It’s almost that time…Marvel’s Luke Cage is coming back with a punch for season 2 and we are here for it. Y’all, the new season is so damn good that Sherin, Monique, Philip, and Alex are set to get you fired up and ready to binge watch it all on Netflix from this Friday. No spoilers, we promise, we don’t need Mariah coming after us. (Read our full s2 [p]review!)

Cheo Hodari Coker is…“The Creator”
Now take that fire and triple it: Luke Cage creator Cheo Hodari Coker joins us to drop some wisdom and the conversation is enthralling. The showrunner has done it all and then some—he chats with Sherin, Monique, and Philip about his DJ days, working with some of the music industry’s finest, and how assembling a TV series is no different than putting together a record. Luke Cage explores what it means to be a hero without a mask and, as Cheo himself describes it, this hero’s story is basically a bulletproof version of Lemonade

We Need to Talk About Cloak & Dagger…
From one amazing Marvel property to…one that’s distinctly less awe-inspiring. We love Freeform and Marvel in general but their new show Cloak & Dagger didn’t pull us in—in fact it pushed us away with every scene. Sherin, Philip, and Alex dig into why they’re not into it…but if you love it, come tell ’em what they’re missing!
