Last weekend was the annual bacchanalia of nerddom known as Comic-Con International: San Diego. And just like every year, Blake and Erin… weren’t there. Instead, with the help of Showcasers on the Facebook Page, they spent the week gathering the coolest and most interesting info from the con to discuss on this week’s show. Their thoughts on the Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justicetrailer. New directors announced for Star Wars. The return of some classic comics and the launch of some new ones. This week, we go through it all…
And what’s cool this week? Erin enjoyed the first two issues of Starfire, and Blake gives his endorsement to Archie #1 and Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #2.
Marvel and DC have both made big announcements lately about the big events that are coming down the line, and this week Blake and Erin break them down. We talk about Secret Wars and the announced (so far) crossover titles, DC’s Convergence and the June mini-relaunch of the DCU!
And what’s cool this week? Erin is all about Sex Criminals Vol. 1 and Blake is into Superman #38 and Abigail and the Snowman #2.
Now that one of the most ambitious comic books in history is over, Blake and Chase have to take the time to explain their thoughts on 52 — what were the good points? What were the bad points? What does it mean for the DC Universe? Plus, their thoughts on the first issue of Countdown, and a new set of comic picks from Free Comic Book Day — Nexus and Astounding Wolf-Man!
