It’s a whole new era for 2 in 1 Showcase, as back-up geek Mike Bellamy tries to make the transition to full-time! How long will he last? Check the Vegas odds tomorrow. This week, the boys are getting Looney, as the talk about the history of Warner Brothers animation. The guys toss around their favorite — and least-favorite — Looney Tunes characters and cartoons, discuss the DVDs and movies, talk about the shows that tried to carry the torch, and bat around the potential future of the franchise. With a new era comes a new rule for picks of the week! Each of the guys has their pick, but one geek each week will chime in with their Graphic Novel Pick of the Week! In the regular picks, Blake rages into Green Lantern #38, Mike walks like an Egyptian in Batman Confidential #26, and Chase digs Outsiders #15. This week’s Graphic Novel Pick: House of Mystery Volume 1: Room and Boredom!
Unable to meet with Chase to record this week, Blake recruits his girlfriend Erin to sit in on the second Showcase Tangent! Blake and Erin update you on their Buffy the Vampire watching and answer your questions! Chase does manage to chime in, however, giving his thoughts on Wildstorm Comics and The Authority. In this week’s picks, Chase throws support to Amazing Spider-Man, Erin is excited to be reading Strangers in Paradise Vol. 1, and Blake was taken by surprise by the coolness of Batman and the Outsiders #5.
