All New Showcase
Comics, movies, TV shows -- it's like having a comic shop argument with your best friends.
Episode 84: Geoff Johns

He seems to win a pick of the week every other episode, so Blake and Chase finally devote an entire hour to the amazing Geoff Johns. From his groundbreaking work on Green Lantern to his upcoming revamp of the Flash to the totally brilliant revitalization of the Legion of Super-Heroes, the guys discuss why they like his work, what makes him so darn good, and whether or not Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds will be as awesome as Blackest Night. In the picks, Blake goes with the first issue of the new Vertigo series, Air, while Chase is blown away by The Walking Dead #51. Please stay tuned after the theme music for a quick message from Blake about the Showcase crew's efforts to dodge Hurricane Gustav. Keep us in your prayers, friends.

Episode 83: Plastic Man This week the guys turn their attention to the world's first pliable sleuth, Plastic Man! The guys ask why he's never cracked the upper tier of the DC Icons, share their favorite stories, reminisce about a miniseries that almost no one remembers, and wonder if Ethan Van Sciver's proposed relaunch will ever get off the ground. After a quick side-discussion on Flash: Rebirth, the guys get to their picks of the week. Chase goes with the webcomic The Devil and the Monk, while Blake asks everyone to rush out and get the superhero novel Playing For Keeps!

Episode 82: Marvel Cosmic The Showcase boys love to argue with each other, but even they have to admit that the Cosmic Corner of the Marvel Universe is currently the place to be.

In the picks this week, Blake stays cosmic with the Skrulls Vs. Power Pack mini-series, while Chase cheers for Captain America #40.

Episode 81: Star Wars (Our) Episode II We've talked Star Wars here before, way back in Episode 19, but with a new movie coming out, the Showcase boys decide to once again journey to a galaxy far, far away. This week, the guys discuss all six Star Wars movies, why Chase hates the Expanded Universe, how he ruined Vector Prime for Blake, who for some reason became friends with him anyway, the current comics from Dark Horse, the property in video games, and of course, the upcoming Clone Wars movie and TV show! In the picks this week, Chase gives props to Daredevil #109, and Blake chuckles over Ambush Bug: Year None #1!

At the Movies Episode 1: The Mummy

It's time for a whole new Showcase! Blake and Chase of the 2 in 1 Showcase on Comics podcast are going to turn their attention to the silver screen in the new 2 in 1 Showcase at the Movies! Every few weeks, the guys' "movie club" will delve in to a film that's out on DVD, pick it apart, and explain why they like it or why they don't. For our first episode, we delve into the world of the 1999 Brendan Fraser film The Mummy, talk briefly about its sequels and the other movies in its world, and explain why we still dig it even nine years later. Next up? The 1984 horror/comedy hybrid classic Ghostbusters! E-mail us with your comments on The Mummy or Ghostbusters, "Ask Chase Anything" questions, or anything else at Showcase@comixtreme.com!

Subscribers, please note: this new show will be on a separate feed from the regular podcast. Only the first episode will also appear on the usual 2 in 1 Showcase feed. You can subscribe to the NEW show by pasting this RSS link into iTunes, or your favorite podcatcher: http://twoinonemovies.libsyn.com/rss

Episode 80: Malibu's Ultraverse Because YOU demanded it! We got so many requests after our Valiant Comics retrospective, that we simply had to delve into another lost universe of the 90s, the Malibu Comics Ultraverse! The Showcase boys talk about their favorite Ultraverse titles and stories, what made the Ultraverse such an innovative experiment, and how the line of comics died out. Also this week: Blake hits three comic shops on his recent trip to Las Vegas -- are any of them better than BSI? And with Chase still absent from the comic shop, Blake doubles up on his picks of the week: Final Crisis: Rogues' Revenge #1 and Hack/Slash Annual #1.
