More and more comic books are making it to the screen these days, both big and little, but no matter how many we see there are still lots of others that haven’t quite broken through. This week, the guys discuss some of the comics they haven’t quite broken through the Hollywood barrier yet. The guys bat around several ideas and share a few suggestions from you. In the picks this week, Mike was into Green Arrow #30, Kenny picks Flash: Rebirth #6 and Blake gives it up for Tiny Titans #25.
Mike isn’t even here this week, but his mom somehow gets the title of this free-for-all, tangent-style episode. Blake and Kenny answer more of your e-mails and talk about more comic news, including the dollar comics for Free Comic Book Day, the state of the Avengers after Siege, the Blackest Night ring/Siege variant controversy, and much more! In the picks, Blake loves the finale of G-Man: Cape Crisis, and Kenny still has mad love for Power Girl
A few days late, thanks to Blake’s epic battle with the Computer Virus of Doom, but the Showcase is back!
