Episode 314: Free Comic Book Day 2015

Free Comic Book Day rolls around once again, and once again Blake and Kenny — joined for the first time by Erin — man a table at BSI Comics in Metairie. This time around the gang chats about recent events in the Flash and Gotham TV shows, give their thoughts on Divergence, All New All Different Avengers, Fight Club, Dark Circle and the other Free Comic Book Day titles, and then come back with a review of Avengers: Age of Ultron.

And what’s cool this week? Kenny is having a blast with LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, Erin is totally biased and chooses her husband’s new book Everything You Need to Know to Survive English Class but slightly less biased with a viewing of the classic Akira, and Blake is still reeling from Batman #40.

Episode 311: Wizard World New Orleans 2015

The convention tour has started again, and this week the Showcase gang walks the floor of Wizard World New Orleans 2015. Blake, Erin, Mike and Kenny talk about some of their finds, the challenge of collectible-diving, and ask the true burning question: are we reaching a saturation point for comic book conventions?

And what’s cool this week? Mike is making his way through Dexter and Batman: Zero Year, Kenny is a fan of Gotham, Erin reading Tale of the Body Thief and watching Breaking Bad, and Blake had fun with Ant-Man #1.

Episode 307: A Good Day For Geek TV

The new season of The Walking Dead starts tonight, and that means we’ll have five live-action, prime time TV shows based on comics at once, with several more on the way. This week, Blake and Erin talk about the beginnings of The Flash and Gotham, the new season of Agents of SHIELD, Peter Capaldi’s first season on Doctor Who, and take a brief detour into this year’s Phineas and Ferb Halloween Special.

And what’s cool this week? Erin is into Diana Rowland‘s My Life as a White Trash Zombie, and Blake recommends Rocket Raccoon #4 and Earth 2: World’s End #1.

One Shot #16: Geek Media Inventory

With the world around him determined to make everything into a competition, this week Blake refuses to play the game. Instead, he talks about the many, many comic book properties currently in development as TV shows and movies, and explains why — no matter what you feel about any project in particular — it’s all very, very good.

And what’s cool this week? The revelation in Justice League 3000 #4 has Blake downright intrigued.

You’re also all invited to join Blake’s latest adventures in Twitter-based humor @SurviveEnglishC.
