It's the first of a series of special podcasts from this year's Nola Comic-Con! Blake, Mike and Kenny spend a few days on the convention floor, talking geek stuff like the finale of Smallville, the Neil Gaiman-penned Doctor Who, convention sketches, cosplayers, and why parking garages HATE Kenny "The Fan-Guy Fanguy." In the picks, Kenny went with Birds of Prey #11 and Blake chooses FF #3. Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@CXPulp.com!

It's time for another At the Movies bonus podcast! Blake, Kenny, Daniel and Jason get together to watch Marvel Studios' Thor. How did it shape up in the pantheon of comic book movies? How did it hold up compared to the comic? What, exactly, constitutes a spoiler, Kenny? Huh? (People wanting to remain spoiler-free, fear not: we bleeped out Kenny's blunder.) The summer movie season is upon us, and hopefully this will just be the first of a season of At the Movies Mini-Podcasts!
