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

The Tolkiening of America continues this week as the Showcase guys take in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. In a (mostly) spoiler-free discussion, the guys talk about how the movie diverges from the book, how they feel about the additions to the original story, and their overall feelings about the film.

And what's cool this week? Jason has been watching Gypsy Sisters, Kenny got a new toy from Japan, and Blake is doing his annual re-read of The Autobiography of Santa Claus by Jeff Guinn.

It's time once again for the Showcase gang to sit down and indulge in some holiday hijnks! This year's Christmas marathon brings the boys face-to-face with some of the lousiest Christmas specials ever made, including several suggestions by you! Listen in as the guys tackle Christmas in PacLand, The Smurfs Christmas Special, He-Man and She-Ra: A Christmas Special, Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer, The Alpha-Bots Christmas, and the granddaddy of them all, The Star Wars Holiday Special! Not gonna lie, guys, we needed the RiffTrax crew to get us through that one.

And what's cool this week? Blake is still jazzed about the new Astro City, and talks about the new storyline that kicked off with issue #7.

This week, the upcoming Man of Steel sequel got another confirmed cast member -- Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman! Predictably, the internet started to have a hissy fit. This week, Blake takes on the Wonder Woman Whiners, as well as those getting huffy over Indiana Jones, and asks for your suggestions for this year's Showcase Christmas Marathon.

And what's cool this week? It's a triple dose of cool with Earth 2 #18, Amazing X-Men #2 and Disney's newest animated film, Frozen.
