Comics, movies, TV shows -- it's like having a comic shop argument with your best friends.
Episode 57: Nightwing

Getting back to their geek roots, this week Chase and Blake take on the character who has been called the "Axis" of the DC Universe, the most famous sidekick of all time, and the lynchpin of some of DC's most classic teams. Originally the first Robin, the boy wonder, now the man named Dick Grayson goes by Nightwing. Our guys shell out their favorite Nightwing stories, talk about what the character means to the DC Universe, and Chase makes the most unfortunate slip of the tongue in Showcase history! In the picks this week, the guys take time to pimp Subculture and Young Avengers Presents. Send in your comments, suggestions and Ask Chase Anything questions to Showcase@comixtreme.com!

Episode 56: The Showcase Tangent The Showcase Geeks have been having a lot of fun lately going through your messages and e-mails... so much fun, in fact, that this week we're giving you the first-ever 2 in 1 Showcase Feedback Special! This week, you steer the conversation, as the guys answer an avalanche of questions and discuss comments on everything from Brand New Day to Exiles to the question of what the worst DC Comics crossover of all time really was. They spin off onto Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles, Lost, and Chase breaks the needle off the Geekometer with a classic Star Trek rant! In the picks this week, Chase presents Chronicles of Wormwood: The Last Enemy, while Blake bids a fond farewell to Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra's Vertigo mainstay, Y: The Last Man. The guys are also prepping new episodes, so send them your choices for your favorite Nightwing stories, your favorite Wonder Woman stories, and your favorite Western comics to Showcase@comixtreme.com!

In the picks, Blake bids a fond farewell to Dwayne McDuffie and Paul Pelletier's Fantastic Four, and Chase gives us a blast from the past in the Hulk: The End Premiere Hardcover!

Episode 54: X-Men-Messiah Complex

The biggest X-Men crossover in years has reached its conclusion, and so this week, Blake and Chase talk about X-Men: Messiah Complex. The guys break down the crossover, talk about how it effected each of the four titles, and give their thoughts on the future of Uncanny X-Men, X-Men: Legacy, Young X-Men and X-Factor! In the picks this week, Chase loves Nova #10, while Blake gives love to the criminally underrated Blue Beetle. Come back next week, then the guys look at the X-Force family of books.
