The first weekend of the year brings with it the first convention of the year: Wizard World New Orleans! Blake, Erin, and Kenny stop in to this year’s convention and talk about the panels, the shopping, the meteoric rise of Pop Vinyls and Mystery Boxes, and the cosplay that seems to have overtaken even Harley Quinn and Deadpool… 2017 is the Year of Negan.
And what’s cool this week? Blake loved Superman #14, Kenny is a fan of the world’s most annoying video game, and Erin just wants some King Cake.
The convention tour has started again, and this week the Showcase gang walks the floor of Wizard World New Orleans 2015. Blake, Erin, Mike and Kenny talk about some of their finds, the challenge of collectible-diving, and ask the true burning question: are we reaching a saturation point for comic book conventions?
And what’s cool this week? Mike is making his way through Dexter and Batman: Zero Year, Kenny is a fan of Gotham, Erin reading Tale of the Body Thief and watching Breaking Bad, and Blake had fun with Ant-Man #1.
It’s the 300th episode of the Showcase, and Wizard World decided to celebrate by throwing a convention! Or maybe it’s a coincidence, who can tell? At any rate, the guys spend the weekend at the convention and chat about cosplay, the autograph-prolific antics of Matt Smith, the fact that Attack on Titan is apparently a thing now, and Blake faces the reality that the next time he goes to a convention he’ll be with his (GASP!) wife!
And what’s cool this week? Kenny doubles up on the card game Fate/Zero and the TV show Almost Human, and Blake’s into The Fox #4 and J.C. Hutchins’s The 33.
It’s the second Wizard World New Orleans convention for 2012! Why? Blake and Kenny try to solve the mystery. The boys also talk convention shopping, cosplaying, Star Trek panel mayhem and close encounters in the Men’s Room. In the picks, Blake is reasonably impressed with Indestructible Hulk #1.

For the second year, Wizard World has come to New Orleans, and the Showcase boys are on the floor. The guys talk costumes, autographs, and convention etiquette, and Blake hits the floor to talk to some of the creators in attendance! Writer John Layman talks about the hit book Chew and his upcoming work on Mars Attacks, arist Joe Eisma gives a tease about Morning Glories, artist Nick Pittara talks about creating The Red Wing and the upcoming Manhattan Project, and writer Brandon Seifert tells us what Witch Doctor has to look forward to in 2012!

The boys make the trip to the first ever Wizard World New Orleans. Listen to the guys as they walk the floor, give their thoughts on the convention, have chats with Sweets creator Kody Chamberlain and X-Men writer Victor Gishler, and listen to the musical stylings of Ethan Van Sciver!

We’re going mano-a-Blakeo this week as your valiant host flies solo. But that doesn’t mean we’re bereft of content! This week Blake gives his thoughts on the new-to-DVD films Kick-Ass and The Losers, talks about a couple of recent events from Wizard World Chicago and the Green Lantern movie, and answers your e-mails! In the picks, Blake doubles up with the surprisingly awesome Life With Archie: The Married Life #1 and the not-at-all-surprisingly awesome Darkwing Duck #3.
