Blake is back for a One-Shot he didn’t want to record. In this week’s mini-episode, we briefly discuss the passing of comic book great Darwyn Cooke and some of his greatest works. And what’s cool this week? Blake recommends you track down the collected editions of Cooke’s 12-issue run on The Spirit.
Blake and Kenny get together this week for the first-ever listener-chosen commentary episode, the 1992 animated film Batman: Mask of the Phantasm! The guys use this first ever DCU animated movie as a springboard to talk about the current movies, other shows in the same universe including Superman, Justice League, Static Shock and Batman Beyond, and eventually ask the burning question: Why has Mike never seen this movie? In the picks, Blake goes with Roger Langridge‘s new all-ages title Snarked! #0, Kenny takes Flashpoint: Hal Jordan #2, and Mike picks Booster Gold #46.

After a week of throatal-type symptoms, Blake’s voice is shot, friends, and unable to talk he won’t be able to record a 2 in 1 Showcase podcast. BUT — that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to listen to this week! Earlier in the week, he joined the good folks of Flying Island Press for an episode of the Galley Table podcast, in which they discuss writing comic books and the challenge of bringing superheroes out of comics into novels, movies, and television. It’s a great conversation with some really creative guys, so be sure to give it a listen. Blake and (hopefully) the gang will be back next week.
