It’s the merry, merry month of May, and that means the summer movie season is about to kick into gear. This week Blake and Erin take a look at all the big releases from Captain America: Civil War through Suicide Squad, with stops along the way for some X-Men action, a visit with Pixar’s favorite fish, and a heated discussion over this summer’s most divisive movie, the Ghostbusters remake!
And what’s cool this week? Erin is continuing her Stephen King kick with Pet Sematary and Blake has enjoyed Avengers: Standoff and The Final Days of Superman.
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.
After a bit of a rain delay, Blake is back with this year’s Free Comic Book Day preview! Which books is he looking forward to? Will Marvel’s wars remain a secret? Just how divergent can DC Comics get? And how can Archie Comics put out two books with no Archie?
And what’s cool this week? Blake’s having a blast with Scott Sigler’s Infected series!
With the summer movie season in swing, Blake and Erin take the time to go through the next few months of releases and talk about what looks cool, what looks awful, and what movies they’re going to be sure to see.
And what’s cool this week? Erin just wants to sleep, so Blake doubles up with Madame Frankenstein #1 and She-Hulk #4.
