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

After a bit of a rain delay, Blake is back with this year's Free Comic Book Day preview! Which books is he looking forward to? Will Marvel's wars remain a secret? Just how divergent can DC Comics get? And how can Archie Comics put out two books with no Archie?

And what's cool this week? Blake's having a blast with Scott Sigler's Infected series!

Join the Showcase crew this Saturday at BSI Comics, and get an early copy of Blake's new book, Everything You Need to Know to Survive English Class!

Memorial Day Weekend is racing towards us, and that means it's time for the annual Showcase Summer Movie Preview. Blake and Erin cruise through IMDB's "Coming Soon" pages this week to talk about Avengers: Age of Ultron and several other movies that will not make as much money as Avengers: Age of Ultron. We go from the blockbusters-in-the-making like Jurassic World, Tomorrowland and San Andreas to movies like Trainwreck, in which the reviews seem to write themselves. Also: Erin shows her street cred and Blake bemoans the state of modern horror!

And what's cool this week? "Wait For the Trade" reader Erin has gotten heavily into Matt Fraction and David Aja's Hawkeye, while weekly comic junkie Blake enjoyed the heck out of Convergence #2 and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #2.

Blake is back! After a short discussion of his absence, and a sincere thank-you to those who helped raise his spirits during his hospital stay, we get into the first week of DC's Convergence event. What happens when the heroes of DC's pre-Flashpoint universe encounter those from other worlds? Wally West! A pregnant Lois Lane! Captain Carrot! There's good stuff here, guys.

And what's cool this week? Only two episodes in, Blake is totally won over by Marvel's first Netflix series, Daredevil.
