Episode 35: The Mighty Thor Blake and his special co-host, Chase doing the world's worst Thor impression, are back for this week's spotlight on the Marvel Comics god of Thunder! From the legendary work of Walt Simonson to the DeFalco/Frenz era, from Mike Oeming's version of Ragnarok to J. Michael Straczynski's reimagining of the character, this week's Showcase is your Thor HQ. Amelia Rules dominates the picks of the week, and then the guys start planning for what's coming next.

Episode 34: Our Favorite Team-Up Stories Superman, Spider-Man, Batman, The Thing, Richie Rich... what do all these heroes have in common? That's right, they've all anchored a team-up comic! This week, Chase and Blake talk about some of their all-time favorite team-ups, when one hero drops in on another's turf for an issue or two. They briefly discuss the history of the team-up, and the state of team-up comics today. In this week's picks section, Chase cheers on Hellblazer, while Blake bids farewell to Dan Slott's She-Hulk. The guys want your input for upcoming episodes! E-mail showcase@comixtreme.com with your favorite X-Men stories, and then help us with our month-long Halloween party, including episodes about EC Comics, zombie comics, monster comics and then a final Halloween blowout! (And if you're feeling brave, record yourself and send us the mp3!) We'll read our favorite e-mails and play your sound clips on the show.
