All New Showcase
Comics, movies, TV shows -- it's like having a comic shop argument with your best friends.
Episode 75: Webcomics

Put down the paper and fire up your computer -- this week the Showcase boys are talking about some of their favorite Webcomics. Blake is a-flurry with suggestions, while Chase tries to figure out the appeal of the phenomenon... and the guys discuss what it takes to make a webcomic, and how to do it. Then in the picks, Chase continues to love Geoff Johns with Action Comics #866, and Blake bids a sad farewell to the comic book version of Justice League Unlimited. Coming soon, the Showcase will feature Hellboy and Batman's greatest foe, the Joker! E-mail us with your comments, "Ask Chase Anything" questions, or anything else at Showcase@comixtreme.com!

Episode 73: Valiant Comics Reborn

It's the episode Blake and Chase have been hoping to record for over ten years now! (That's right. Even before podcasting existed.) The Valiant Universe -- home of heroes such as Harbinger, X-O Manowar, Archer and Armstrong and Rai and the Future Force -- is slowly making a return with new hardcover editions, and the promise of new comics to come. This week, the guys tell you their favorite Valiant stories, cross their fingers for the return for Magnus: Robot Fighter and Solar: Man of the Atom to the line, and explain how they would resurrect Valiant as a line of ongoing comics. In the picks this week, Blake cheers for the return of Firebreather and Chase is still in love with Green Lantern: Secret Origin. In the next two weeks we're going to talk Wanted and Mark Millar, then an episode focusing on our favorite Webcomics, so e-mail us with your comments, "Ask Chase Anything" questions, or anything else at Showcase@comixtreme.com! And if you've got a Webcomic suggestion, be sure to include the URL!
