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

It's time for your next 2-in-1 Shot! Now that Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm is final, what does that mean for Dark Horse's Star Wars comics? And how is Fantagraphics still doing such beautiful Disney comics right now? Also, after Gail Simone was fired from Batgirl, DC has announced her replacement... Gail Simone! Blake also hits you with a special Yuletide pick, Hawkeye #6. Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@CXPulp.com!

Still stuffed from a particularly exciting Thanksgiving week, Blake and Erin sit down to talk about things from across the Geek landscape. They review the latest James Bond film, Skyfall, talk with much spoiler-tude about recent events in The Walking Dead (both comic and TV show), and dish on the Batman crossover Death of the Family, the resurrected Amethyst in DC's Sword of Sorcery, and the big twist in Amazing Spider-Man #698. Oh, and they've got a little something personal to share with you guys, too. In the picks, Erin recommends the Walking Dead novels Rise of the Governor and The Road to Woodbury, and Blake picks the Marvel Now! reboot of Deadpool.
