With the end of the year approaching, the second Hollywood Blockbuster season is here! This week, Blake and Erin take a look at two months’ worth of releases — the big-budget movies, the smaller Oscar bait, and anything else that catches their eyes. Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@CXPulp.com!
And what’s cool this week? Erin is still heavy into The Dresden Files: Cold Days and Blake gives it up for Sandman: Overture #1.

All New Showcase #296: The 2013 Holiday Movie Preview
Because you demanded it! People have long asked us to do an episode delving into the classic X-Men storyline, The Age of Apocalypse, and we at the showcase aim to please! This week, Blake and Chase talk about the overall storyline, our favorites of the individual issues, and which elements from the Age of Apocalypse managed to transcend “alternate reality” status and become part of the regular X-Men lore. In the picks, Blake loved the first issue of Ender’s Game: Command School, while Chase gives us the graphic novel pick, Saga of the Swamp Thing Book One.

It’s been 100 episodes, and they said it wouldn’t last! For their Centennial Celebration, Blake, Chase and Kenny camp out at BSI Comics on the first New Comic Day of the year! The guys tell the Secret Origin of the podcast, Blake gives you 2 in 1 Showcase By the Numbers, the guys read a lot of your e-mails, chat with the staff and customers, and get into a bitter debate over the original leader of the Voltron force! Because that’s how we roll. Also, beginning this week, we’re asking you guys to write in with your own Picks of the Week! Thanks to Robert Willing for the suggestion, and for giving us the first pick! In the regular picks, Chase dives into the back issue bin for Swamp Thing #37-39, Blake finds himself enjoying Ender’s Shadow: Battle School #1, and Kenny loved the Justice Society of America Kingdom Come Special: Magog one-shot.
