In the picks this week, Chase cheers for Franklin Richards: Not-So-Secret Invasion #1, while Blake is stunned at how Supergirl has become a must-read comic.

Episode 69: Marvel Movie Blowout Prepare yourself for the biggest 2 in 1 Showcase ever! With no less than five comic book movies coming out this summer and more planned for the fall, the Showcase boys decided to do a two-part episode talking about all the Marvel and DC movies to date. What neither of them expected was that both parts would be gargantuan. In this double-sized episode, the guys break down all of the Marvel films by franchise, debate the merits, and give their own rating of each and every one -- and the discussion lasts longer than some of the movies! In this week's picks, Blake loves the new Guardians of the Galaxy, while the conclusion of "Last Son of Krypton" makes Action Comics Annual Chase's choice. Next week, the guys tackle the DC movies, in another giant podcast! E-mail us with your comments, "Ask Chase Anything" questions, or anything else at Showcase@comixtreme.com!
