Comics, movies, TV shows -- it's like having a comic shop argument with your best friends.
Episode 151: 2009-The Year in Review Your good buddy Chase is back for the first of two very special episodes! This week, Chase and Blake announce the winners of the Best of 2009 as voted on by you, the Showcase listener! Then, as this extra-length episode continues, the guys delve into all the big comic book news of 2009. Disney buys Marvel! DC Entertainment! Archie marries Veronica... kinda! And Diamond's new rules change the game entirely. If it's happening in the world of comics, the boys talk about it. In the picks this week, Chase loves The Complete Rocketeer, and Blake gives us The Tick New Series #1! Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@comixtreme.com!

Turn Right at the Sign (Evercast #11) Merry Christmas from Blake M. Petit's Evercast! Every year, for some time now, I've written a new Christmas short story as my "card" to my friends and family. (And don't forget, you can download all those previous stories for free from Smashwords.com!) But now, in this age of social networking, podcasting, MyFacing and Tweetbooking, I've expanded my scope to bring these tales to everyone out there. This year's short story is a tale of love, understanding, and what happens when the two may not go together. Please enjoy Turn Right at the Sign.

And don't forget, you can read the story (if you're old-school like that) on EvertimeRealms.com!

At the Movies Episode 12: The Princess and the Frog It's back! We haven't had an At the Movies episode since the summer months wound down, but Blake is here to fix that. Five years since their last traditionally-animated movie, Walt Disney Animation has returned to the form that made it great with The Princess and the Frog -- but can a New Orleans-based fairy tale cut it with this Louisiana boy, or is the magic still missing from the House of Mouse?

Episode 149: The Christmas Special Special With the clock ticking up to the big day, Blake sits down with his sister Heather for a conversation about their favorite Christmas specials, TV shows, and movies. Fueled by your comments, the sibs talk about the classics of their youth, the new specials that have hit in recent years, and cross their fingers for future specials. Rankin and Bass, Disney classics, Hanna Barbera, Bob Clark, Charles Dickens and of course, Bruce Willis are all right here. In the picks, Heather simply questions the wisdom of people who have never seen A Christmas Story, while Blake recommends the indie comic Jill Chill and the Christmas Star from Cool Yule Comics.
