It’s time for another Showcase Commentary episode! This week, Blake and Kenny sit down to watch one of their favorite geek films, The Gamers: Dorkness Rising. As they discuss the film, the guys tell tales of their own Dungeons and Dragons and role-playing adventures, talk about the works of cartoonist Aaron Williams, and discuss gaming comics and media in general. Head on over to NetFlix and queue up the movie in to stream along as you listen to the boys discuss it! In the picks, Blake has a great time with X-Factor Forever #1 and Kenny stays on-topic with the first collected edition of the gamer comic Looking For Group.
Put down the paper and fire up your computer — this week the Showcase boys are talking about some of their favorite Webcomics. Blake is a-flurry with suggestions, while Chase tries to figure out the appeal of the phenomenon… and the guys discuss what it takes to make a webcomic, and how to do it. Then in the picks, Chase continues to love Geoff Johns with Action Comics #866, and Blake bids a sad farewell to the comic book version of Justice League Unlimited.
Since we’re covering webcomics this week, we thought it best to give you guys the links to the various comics we talk about. NOTE: Some of these comics include harsh, grown-up language. Click at your own risk.
