Last weekend was the annual bacchanalia of nerddom known as Comic-Con International: San Diego. And just like every year, Blake and Erin… weren’t there. Instead, with the help of Showcasers on the Facebook Page, they spent the week gathering the coolest and most interesting info from the con to discuss on this week’s show. Their thoughts on the Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justicetrailer. New directors announced for Star Wars. The return of some classic comics and the launch of some new ones. This week, we go through it all…
And what’s cool this week? Erin enjoyed the first two issues of Starfire, and Blake gives his endorsement to Archie #1 and Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #2.
Blake and Erin return this week for another Your Turn to Pick movie podcast! This time it’s Blake’s turn, and he pulls out Adam Green’s (Hatchet, Frozen) newest horror film Digging Up the Marrow. They talk about the monsters, the nature of characters in horror movies, and what kind of movie is creepy enough to make Erin jump at her own ringtone. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, check it out before the Petits get super-spoilery.
And what’s cool this week? Erin loved Disney/Pixar’s newest flick Inside Out, and Blake doubles up with a pair of comic books: Evil Dead 2: Beyond Dead By Dawn #1 and Infinity Gauntlet #2.
They’re both back! Overcoming Herculean computer problems, this week Blake and Erin are both audible as they talk a little bit about the current movie crop. Erin sings the praises of Jurassic Park in 3D, while Blake gives his opinion on the remake of Evil Dead and the new DVD release of John Dies at the End. The two also talk this week’s episode of Doctor Who and mourn the passing of comic greats Carmine Infantino and George Gladir.
