All New Showcase
Comics, movies, TV shows -- it's like having a comic shop argument with your best friends.
EPISODE 31: ADVENTURE HEROES AND BOOSTER GOLD With a new Flash Gordon show on TV, the guys take this week to talk about classic old-school adventure strip heroes. Buck Rogers! Dick Tracy! Doc Savage! The Phantom! And, of course, when they came together as the Defenders of the Earth! They talk about the new Flash Gordon (or perhaps "rant" would be more appropriate") and finish off the discussion by lamenting their lack of a theme song. Then, this week's pick of the week completely takes over the second half of the show, as the guys gush like giddy schoolgirls over the sheer awesomeness that was Booster Gold #1. Hit us up at Showcase@comixtreme.com with your comments and your picks for your favorite "cult" comics, team-up stories, and Thor adventures!

Episode 30: The Avengers Before launching this week's episode, the guys take a few minutes to pay tribute to the late Mike Wieringo. Then it's time to tackle the best of Marvel's premiere heroes, the Mighty Avengers! The guys dish on their all-time favorite Avengers stories, share some of your choices and talk about the current state of the three (or is it five?) Avengers titles. In the picks section, Blake sings the praises of Hack/Slash, while Chase bids a fond farewell to Peter David's Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man. It'll be time to record again before you know it, folks, so e-mail Showcase@comixtreme.com with your favorite cult comics, team-up stories and Thor adventures!

Episode 29: Neil Gaiman and Stardust

There's one last comic book movie closing out the summer, friends, and so this week Chase and Blake turn their focus on Stardust writer Neil Gaiman. Listen as the guys discuss their favorite Gaiman stories, both in comics and prose, as Chase continues to confuse "the Dream King" with Gaiman himself, and as Blake explains what's really good about his work once you get past the pretentious goths who have attempted to co-opt it as their own. For this week's picks, Blake brings us Doug TenNapel's Black Cherry, and Chase cheats and slips in two -- Tek Jansen and Star Trek: Year Four. Be sure to come back later this weekend for Blake's special Stardust mini-review, and you can join in on the show now by e-mailing Showcase@comixtreme.com with your favorite Avengers, Adventure Strip heroes, and Supergirl stories for use in future episodes!
