Episode 284: Where Are OUR Comics?

This week, Blake and Kenny sit down to chat about comic book news — the new Green Lantern creative teams, the return of Power Girl’s classic costume, George Romero bringing his zombies to Marvel Comics, and more! Then, with a little help from our Facebook friends, we pick into big properties that are NOT currently being published in this age of licensed comics… James Bond, Gargoyles, Silverhawks… where are their comics? In the picks, Kenny is reading Geek Magazine and Blake is reading Locke and Key: Omega. Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@CXPulp.com!

Episode 278: Thanksgiving Leftovers

Still stuffed from a particularly exciting Thanksgiving week, Blake and Erin sit down to talk about things from across the Geek landscape. They review the latest James Bond film, Skyfall, talk with much spoiler-tude about recent events in The Walking Dead (both comic and TV show), and dish on the Batman crossover Death of the Family, the resurrected Amethyst in DC’s Sword of Sorcery, and the big twist in Amazing Spider-Man #698. Oh, and they’ve got a little something personal to share with you guys, too. In the picks, Erin recommends the Walking Dead novels Rise of the Governor and The Road to Woodbury, and Blake picks the Marvel Now! reboot of Deadpool.

Episode 260: Superheroes Beyond Comics

Although comic books gave birth to the superhero as we know it, that doesn’t mean they’ve been restricted to the four-color pages all these years. This week, Blake and Kenny share their own top ten lists of superheroes who were born outside of comic books, then dive into some of your suggestions. In the picks, Kenny goes with Aquaman, and Blake chooses Wolverine and the X-Men and the final issue of Tiny Titans. Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@CXPulp.com!
