Episode 260: Superheroes Beyond Comics

Although comic books gave birth to the superhero as we know it, that doesn’t mean they’ve been restricted to the four-color pages all these years. This week, Blake and Kenny share their own top ten lists of superheroes who were born outside of comic books, then dive into some of your suggestions. In the picks, Kenny goes with Aquaman, and Blake chooses Wolverine and the X-Men and the final issue of Tiny Titans. Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@CXPulp.com!

Episode 119: Return of the Showcase Tangent

We haven’t done one since October, and that’s way too long. It’s the return of the Showcase Tangent! This week the guys bounce from topic to topic with no rhyme or reason, answering your e-mails, and going where the discussion takes us. Flash: Rebirth! The new DC pulp heroes including Doc Savage! Kevin Smith on The Green Hornet! The great Star Trek debate! Dark Avengers! And lots, lots more in this giant-sized episode! In the picks this week, Blake loves the first issue of The Unwritten, Chase loves every issue of The Walking Dead, and Mike has been waiting 15 years to love Power Girl! This week’s graphic novel pick: Fallen Angel Vol. 6: Cities of Light and Dark.

Episode 31: Adventure Heroes and Booster Gold

With a new Flash Gordon show on TV, the guys take this week to talk about classic old-school adventure strip heroes. Buck Rogers! Dick Tracy! Doc Savage! The Phantom! And, of course, when they came together as the Defenders of the Earth! They talk about the new Flash Gordon (or perhaps “rant” would be more appropriate”) and finish off the discussion by lamenting their lack of a theme song. Then, this week’s pick of the week completely takes over the second half of the show, as the guys gush like giddy schoolgirls over the sheer awesomeness that was Booster Gold #1.
