Blake is back for a One-Shot he didn’t want to record. In this week’s mini-episode, we briefly discuss the passing of comic book great Darwyn Cooke and some of his greatest works. And what’s cool this week? Blake recommends you track down the collected editions of Cooke’s 12-issue run on The Spirit.
With Star Wars Episode VII moving forward, inevitably some casting rumors are going to start circulating. After hearing some of the names being mentioned, Blake thought it was time he sent a little message to Disney to tell them how to get it right. Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@CXPulp.com!
And what’s cool this week? Blake recommends The Rocketeer and The Spirit: Pulp Friction #1 and the short story collection Machine of Death!
With no new Lost this week, you get an episode safe for anyone to listen to for a change! The guys talk about feeling letdown by a clip show, then jump into the new stuff — the penultimate Heroes for Season Three and the new show The Unusuals. In DVD news, Chase gives his thoughts on the Battlestar Galactica spin-off Caprica and the just-released Spirit movie, and Blake is just happy to finally get a volume two of his beloved Tiny Toon Adventures. If you’re in the New Orleans area this weekend, come on down and meet the guys at the 2009 Nola Comic-Con!
On Christmas day, movie theaters will burst open with Frank Miller‘s big-screen adaptation of The Spirit. This week, Blake and Chase talk about the character’s history in comics, his current status in DC comics, and how the legendary Will Eisner turned a guy in a blue three-piece suit into one of the most innovative superheroes ever created. In the picks this week, Blake recommends Archer and Armstrong: First Impressions, and Chase is still loving the new Flash Gordon series.
Blake and Chase have decided to postpone your regularly-scheduled Green Lantern episode for a special 2 in 1 Showcase. Recorded on location at BSI Comics in Metairie, La., our resident geeks talk with each other, comic shop staff and comic shop customers about the ending of Civil War, the new status quo and the future of the Marvel Universe, and the “final” fate of Captain America. Our guys also speak up for Darwyn Cooke’s The Spirit and Tom Stillwell’s Honor Brigade
