Blake and Erin are back with a new recording set-up — how better to test it out than to have Erin rail at the crew of The Walking Dead? This week we get super-spoilery on the season six finale, talk about Jeffrey Dean Morgan‘s introduction to the show, discuss the season and the upcoming Fear the Walking Dead, and place our bets on the hashtag of the moment: #WhoIsIt?
After a quick email inspired revisit of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s time to ask what’s cool this week? Erin is reading everything in the universe, especially Stephen King‘s 11/22/63, while Blake brings us a double-dose of comic pics: Jughead #5and the final issue of Batman and Robin Eternal.
Blake is back! After a short discussion of his absence, and a sincere thank-you to those who helped raise his spirits during his hospital stay, we get into the first week of DC’s Convergenceevent. What happens when the heroes of DC’s pre-Flashpoint universe encounter those from other worlds? Wally West! A pregnant Lois Lane! Captain Carrot! There’s good stuff here, guys.
And what’s cool this week? Only two episodes in, Blake is totally won over by Marvel’s first Netflix series, Daredevil.
Blake is alone and hoarse this week, so he doesn’t waste time and gets right to saying a few words about two men from the world of comics who passed away this week: historian Les Daniels and cartoonist Bil Keane. In the picks, he goes with Batgirl #3. Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@CXPulp.com!
Blake is alone for this week’s short episode, in which he talks about the last few weeks of Geek TV! He gives an opinion on the last couple of Doctor Who revelations and chats about the season premieres of Community, The Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother. In his double-picks this week, he approves of Scott Snyder‘s Batman #1 and the new take on Star Trek coming from IDW! Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@CXPulp.com!
Blake goes solo on this week’s Week in Geek, with a few thoughts on the last two episodes of LOST, the direct-to-DVD animated Wonder Woman movie, and the premiere of the new Nathan Fillion dramedy Castle. And for you comic fans, it’s a big week for both heroes using the name Nightwing! Spoilers abound for Action Comics #875 and Batman: Battle For the Cowl #1!
With Bruce Wayne MIA (as opposed to RIP), Gotham City is descending into chaos. Soon, the Sons of the Bat will go head-to-head for the right to claim his mantle. Before that happens, though, Blake and Chase break down the Batman Family — the four sons, the assorted daughters, the fathers, the lovers, and the assorted hangers-on. The guys also discuss the eight Batman-family comics recently announced beginning after Battle For the Cowl ends, and they place their bets on who will be wearing each costume. But what are the stakes of their wager? That, friends, is where you come in. Also, in the picks this week, Blake bids farewell to Fables cover artist James Jean, and Chase is all about G.I. Joe #1.
When Blake has to take a sick day, Chase rounds up two guest-hosts to sit in for a Valentine’s Day special where they talk about the most eligible bachelors in comics — Nightwing? Captain America? Aquaman? Namor? And of course, they tackle the ultimate face-off — Tony Stark versus Bruce Wayne! In the picks this week, we look at Savage Dragon #144 and Amazing Spider-Man Extra #2.
Blake and Chase spend this week chatting about the king of the seven seas, DC‘s Aquaman! The boys talk about the character’s various eras, best stories, how they’d fix him up and make him viable again, and why he gets less respect than Rodney Dangerfield. Then, getting a bit more serious, the guys discuss the new Diamond Distribution policy and why it may spell death for smaller comics. In the picks, it’s a good week for the Sons of the Bat (or at least their enemies), as Blake goes with Robin #182 and Chase picks Nightwing #152!
DC Comics has released a Teaser Image for the upcoming Batman: Battle For the Cowl event. This week, in your Week in Geek, Blake dissects the image to try to figure out the clues and hints hidden within!
It’s only a few days until Christmas, folks. Before you hang up your stockings and put out cookies for Santa, have a seat with Blake and Chase as they talk about the holiday-themed comics that came out this year, as well as some of their favorite Christmas movies and TV specials. Chase regales us with the heartwarming story of how the Showcase crew saw Love, Actually together, the guys debate the merits of Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, and everybody huddles around the virtual fire to talk about what we want for Christmas. In the picks this week, Blake cheers the greatest Junior Woodchucks Story Ever Told in Uncle Scrooge #383, and Chase cheers the return of the X-Men to the rest of the Marvel Universe in Uncanny X-Men #505.
