Episode 19: Star Wars It's a multi-fandom geekfest in this week's 2 in 1 Showcase. May is the 30th anniversary of the original Star Wars movie, and there's no way Chase and Blake could let such an occasion go by without notice. This week our boys spend time talking about their all-time favorite Star Wars comic books, talk about the comics being published by Dark Horse Comics these days, and tell you how to get your episode idea moved up on "The List." Then they think out of the box for this week's picks -- TwoMorrows Publishing's The Dark Age and Fantagraphics' The Complete Peanuts. And stay tuned later this week for Chase's special bonus report from Phoenix Rising, New Orleans' big Harry Potter convention!

Episode 17: Free Comic Book Day 2007

The sixth annual Free Comic Book Day has come and gone, friends, but the memories remain. Although Chase couldn't make it today, guest host Mike Bellamy joined Blake at BSI Comics for a special on-location episode to talk with the staff and customers of their local comic shop about FCBD, getting kids into comics, why Blake can't tell a Storm Trooper from a Snowtrooper, and everything to do with comics and movies. After the show, feel free to throw some reviews up at iTunes, Podcast Alley or Podcast Pickle, join the conversation at comiXtreme.com, and e-mail the guys at Showcase@comiXtreme.com!
