One-Shot #12: Podcast Problems

This week, Apple released the big iOS7 update, which is pretty cool. Also, the iTunes 11.1 update… which is the exact opposite of cool. Blake rants a little bit here. Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@CXPulp.com!

And what’s cool this week? To make up for this rant, Blake hits you with a quadruple dose of cool, with Flash #23.3: The Rogues, Avengers A.I. #3, Herobear and the Kid: The Inheritance #2 and some Valiant classics you can grab cheaply right now.

Episode 73: Valiant Comics Reborn

It’s the episode Blake and Chase have been hoping to record for over ten years now! (That’s right. Even before podcasting existed.) The Valiant Universe — home of heroes such as Harbinger, X-O Manowar, Archer and Armstrong and Rai and the Future Force — is slowly making a return with new hardcover editions, and the promise of new comics to come. This week, the guys tell you their favorite Valiant stories, cross their fingers for the return for Magnus: Robot Fighter and Solar: Man of the Atom to the line, and explain how they would resurrect Valiant as a line of ongoing comics. In the picks this week, Blake cheers for the return of Firebreather and Chase is still in love with Green Lantern: Secret Origin.
