It’s time for another Your Turn to Pick! This week, in memory of the late Wes Craven, Blake chooses his 1982 DC Comics movie Swamp Thing. We talk about the movie, Blake suffers a tragic misunderstanding about the nature of two of the characters, and then we discuss Craven’s legacy as a filmmaker and which Nightmare on Elm Street movie is actually best.
And what’s cool this week? Erin is in love with Ms. Marvel, while Blake dug the finale of Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars and has found a new reason to anticipate the upcoming Superman: Lois and Clark.

In the picks, Blake gives us a New 52 Pick, Superman #2 and a Halloween pick, Casper’s Scare School #1! Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@CXPulp.com!
