Blake flies solo this week with an in-depth look at the Boom! Kids line of comics featuring the Disney, Pixar, and Muppet characters. Blake looks at each of the series that has been released to date, gives his thoughts on the best and the weakest, and offers a few suggestions for the future of the line. In the picks, check out the Showcase Presents Ambush Bug graphic novel, and the Assault on New Olympus Prologue one-shot!
They once shared a title — why not share a Showcase episode? People have often asked the guys to discuss two of DC‘s classic heroes, Hawkman and The Atom, so this week the boys tackle the legendary duo. The histories of the characters, their favorite stories, and where they are today… well, you know the drill. In the picks this week, Blake throws his support behind volume three of Gemstone‘s excellent Barks/Rosa Collection series of Disney comics, and Chase likes the zero issue of IDW‘s new G.I. Joe line!
It’s time for a little family fun as Chase and Blake tackle the intricate world of Disney Comics! From their origins at Dell in the 1940s, up to today’s books from Gemstone and Slave Labor Graphics, the guys talk about the history of Disney in comics, some of their favorite stories, what they’re doing right, and what they could be doing better — and their findings just may surprise you. In the picks this week, Chase gives his props to The Walking Dead #44, while Blake has a big belly laugh with… World War Hulk: Aftersmash? We told you guys — this episode isn’t what you’d expect.
The 2 in 1 Showcase Halloween Spooktacular comes to a close as the guys discuss some of their all-time favorite Halloween comic books! The guys discuss spooky adventures with Superman, Captain America, Donald Duck and the gang at PVP, then delve into the Halloween specials and other creepy comics that came out in the past month, including Simon Dark, Franklin Richards: Monster Mash, Marvel Zombies 2 and many more! This week’s picks include the deliciously haunted Crawl Space: Xxxombies and the decidedly family-friendly Walt Disney Treasures: 75 Years of Innovation.
It’s week one of the 2 in 1 Showcase Halloween Spooktacular, and we’re kicking it off in style! Blake and Chase talk about the history of the greatest horror comic publisher of all time, the legacy it left behind, the artists it inspired, the groundbreaking Tales From the Crypt HBO TV series, the sublime archive editions from Gemstone and the new Crypt comics from Papercutz. In the picks this week, Blake goes with a Halloween one-shot — Donald Duck and the Case of the Missing Mummy — while Chase gives his props to Dynamite‘s new anthology Savage Tales.
