All New Showcase
Comics, movies, TV shows -- it's like having a comic shop argument with your best friends.
Episode 24: The Flash In times of crisis, things always go into chaos for DC's scarlet speedster, the Flash! And if there's one thing Chase and Blake know, it's that chaos makes for good podcasting. This week the guys discuss their all-time favorite Flash stories, what they think really happened in Flash: The Fastest Man Alive #13 and Justice League of America #10, the future of the Flash legacy, and the impact of time-travel jet lag on the human body. Stick around for this week's picks: Nova and TransFormers: Megatron, and help spread the word about the show with reviews at iTunes and all over the web.
