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.
Blake is by himself this week, taking a look at some of the news coming out from this weekend’s New York Comic-Con.

In the picks, we look at Batman #13 and the Image Halloween Eve One-Shot! Don’t forget to e-mail us your top ten favorite movie monsters for our Halloween episode!

The Showcase boys were ships passing in the night this week, so Blake flies solo for an e-mail answering, reviewifying episode! He talks about the first few weeks of the new hit show The Walking Dead, talks a bit about J. Michael Straczynski leaving monthly comics and the new writers on Wonder Woman and Superman, then talks about four new releases this week: Atomic Robo and the Deadly Art of Science #1, T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #1, The Thanos Imperative #6 and the epic Tiny Titans/Little Archie #2. Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@CXPulp.com!

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.
The summer movie season continues as the boys discuss one of Chase‘s all-time favorite TV shows, The X-Files. The guys talk about the history of the show, its history in comics, other comics in that paranormal vein, and just what they expect out of the new movie. The guys double up on their picks of the week, with Chase choosing Nova #16 and Guardians of the Galaxy #2 and Blake saying goodbye to G.I. Joe: America’s Elite and hello to Spooks: Omega Team.
The biggest X-Men crossover in years has reached its conclusion, and so this week, Blake and Chase talk about X-Men: Messiah Complex. The guys break down the crossover, talk about how it effected each of the four titles, and give their thoughts on the future of Uncanny X-Men, X-Men: Legacy, Young X-Men and X-Factor! In the picks this week, Chase loves Nova #10, while Blake gives love to the criminally underrated Blue Beetle.
In times of crisis, things always go into chaos for DC’s scarlet speedster, the Flash! And if there’s one thing Chase and Blake know, it’s that chaos makes for good podcasting. This week the guys discuss their all-time favorite Flash stories, what they think really happened in Flash: The Fastest Man Alive #13 and Justice League of America #10, the future of the Flash legacy, and the impact of time-travel jet lag on the human body. Stick around for this week’s picks: Nova and TransFormers: Megatron, and help spread the word about the show with reviews at iTunes and all over the web.
