2008 ends in just days, folks, so let’s go out with a Showcase blowout! Joined by back-up geeks Mike and Kenny, the boys announce the winners of the Best of 2008 awards, as voted on by you! Then, it’s a long talk about everything that happened in comics in 2008! The Dark Knight, the rise of Marvel Studios, Diamond refuses to distribute Hack/Slash, Archie goes back to ninth grade, and a heck of a lot more. This double-sized episode is the longest Showcase ever (we promise we won’t make a habit of it)! And instead of our usual picks of the week, stay tuned as our four guys pick their favorite comic books of the entire year! Next week will be the 100th Episode Spectacular! If you’ll be in the New Orleans area on Friday, Jan. 2 at about 4:30 p.m., stop in at BSI Comics to join the guys as they record their centennial episode!
Recently, Chase and his wife Jenny made a terrifying discovery: Blake never watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer. So, with the help of Blake‘s girlfriend Erin, the Buffy fans sit him down for a marathon of the best episodes. The gang also talks about the new Buffy Season Eight series, the Angel and Spike comics, and the future of the Buffyverse as a whole! Join the guys and their girls for one of the most fun episodes they’ve ever recorded! In the picks this week, Chase cheers for The Ressurection of Ra’s Al Ghul and Blake gives a thumbs-up to the return of Hero By Night.
With Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer about to hit your movie theaters, Blake and Chase bring you the first of a special two part episode! This week, the guys talk about their favorite stories starring Marvel Comics’ first family, the Fantastic Four — the all-time classics, the “new” team, and their hopes for the new movie. And in this week’s picks, the guys tackle a pair of lower-profile superheroes: Hero By Night and Madman Atomic Comics.
