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.
And here’s the BSI Comics Podcast half of the great Showcase/BSI Crossover! It doesn’t actually matter which one you listen to first, but we did record the BSI half before the Showcase half, and we occasionally reference the earlier conversation in the latter episode. If you’re picky about such things.
It’s time for another Showcase Countdown! This week, the boys each give their own top ten lists for the greatest villains of all time, then count down the ultimate list as voted on by the Showcase listeners. Tune in to find out whose villainy takes the top prize! In the picks, Mike goes with Superman #8, Kenny takes Aquaman #8, and Blake praises Fantastic Four #506.1. Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@CXPulp.com!
We’re getting into another classic comic discussion, friends, this week looking at perhaps the greatest Marvel crossover of all time: The Infinity Gauntlet. The boys look at the roots of Thanos’s story, through the epic series and its crossovers, and at the books that spun out after the series was over. Was this a crossover so good that it ruined crossovers for us since then? In the picks this week, Chase picks Planet Skaar Prologue, Blake loved Wonder Woman #32, and Mike was into Brave and the Bold #23. This week’s graphic novel: Silver Surfer: The Rebirth of Thanos.
The Showcase boys love to argue with each other, but even they have to admit that the Cosmic Corner of the Marvel Universe is currently the place to be. The guys talk about their all-time favorite cosmic Marvel stories, how Annihilation laid the groundwork for Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy to be two of Marvel’s best comics, and the upcoming War of Kings crossover event! In the picks this week, Blake stays cosmic with the Skrulls Vs. Power Pack mini-series, while Chase cheers for Captain America #40.
In the second part of their two-part look at Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Blake and Chase discuss their favorite stories starring the sentinel of the spaceways. Heavy on Infinity Gauntlet and Annihilation, the guys also find time to recommend two upcoming reprint collections, Showcase Presents Captain Carrot and the resurrection of the Valiant Universe in Harbinger.
