In this week's io9 show, we discuss some of our favorite web comics, urban dystopia, and the difference between the art in Alien and its forthcoming prequel, Prometheus. Plus, use science to blow up your breakfast and annoy your friends! Why do we have a hammer on the table in front of us? You decide.

You can catch more episodes of the io9 Show on YouTube or Revision3. We're also on iTunes! Tune in every Friday for more future than you can shake a hammer at!
