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 and Erin get together this week to talk about movies. They give their thoughts on the recent film Chronicle and the newest DCU animated film Justice League: Doom, plus a few other films that have crossed their Netflix queues lately, and look forward to John Carter and The Hunger Games. Moving on to other talk, we say farewell to Sheldon Moldoff and Ralph McQuarrie, celebrate the return of Community, talk about the pre-orders for Avengers Vs. X-Men and the Earth 2 costume designs and more! In the picks, we talk about Hack/Slash #13 and The Shade #5. Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@CXPulp.com!

In just a few weeks, fanboys will be swarming the movie theatres to see the second adventure of Robert Downey, Jr. as the armored Avenger. Before Iron Man 2 hits, though, the guys sit down and re-watch the first Iron Man film. Listen in as Blake and Kenny discuss the first movie, talk about their hopes for the sequel, chat a bit about the character’s history and current state in the comics, and even discuss the movie tie-in toys from Hasbro! In the picks, Kenny goes with perennial favorite Power Girl #1, and Blake cheats a little, doubling up with The Muppet Show #4 and Thor and the Warriors Four #1.
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.
It’s the Showcase Crew’s greatest challenge yet! Armed with only a dollar each, Blake and Chase delve into the comic geek’s manna from Heaven — a Quarter Bin! The guys review an eclectic mix of old-school comics, including Warlock, Power Pack, Supreme, Fade From Grace, Star Trek: The Early Voyages, Captain Confederacy, James Bond Jr. and Here Come the Big People! This week’s picks include Astonishing X-Men and the Heroes hardcover,
