Episode 201: Mike Vs. Rankin and Bass

A few months ago, Mike “Technodunce” Bellamy made a horrifying confession: he’d never seen any of the classic Rankin & Bass Christmas specials in their entirety. This week, the Showcase boys set out to rectify that error, making Mike watch the classic TV specials Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town, The Year Without a Santa Claus, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman, complete with our commentary on each one! In the picks, Kenny digs the Blu-Ray of The A-Team, while Blake goes with a double dose of Christmas Comics, Supergirl #59 and the graphic novel Amelia Rules!: A Very Ninja Christmas. Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@CXPulp.com!

Episode 15: Rob Liefeld

It’s the greatest debate in 2 in 1 Showcase history! Chase is a fan, Blake a detractor — this week our hosts tackle one of the most divisive figures in comic books, Rob Liefeld. Once the smoke clears, they discuss indie hit Amelia Rules! and Marvel’s Thunderbolts Presents Baron Zemo: Born Better, they dish on their plans for convention season and Free Comic Book Day, and for some inexplicable reason they wind up on a Harry Potter tangent. Because that’s what geeks do, that’s why.
