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

It may be Marvel's biggest risk yet -- this week the Showcase crew discusses how Ant-Man stacks up against the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe! Is it too little, too late, or will this be the movie to prove that good things come in small packages?

And what's cool this week? In what may be the most diverse array of choices ever, Erin is in the midst of an X-Files rewatch, Jason recently discovered the classic The Manchurian Candidate, Mike is finishing a read of Jamie Delano's Animal Man, and Blake just binged the sitcom Holliston.

Last weekend was the annual bacchanalia of nerddom known as Comic-Con International: San Diego. And just like every year, Blake and Erin... weren't there. Instead, with the help of Showcasers on the Facebook Page, they spent the week gathering the coolest and most interesting info from the con to discuss on this week's show. Their thoughts on the Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer. New directors announced for Star Wars. The return of some classic comics and the launch of some new ones. This week, we go through it all...

And what's cool this week? Erin enjoyed the first two issues of Starfire, and Blake gives his endorsement to Archie #1 and Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #2.

Last week, Marvel released their new slate of titles to follow Secret Wars. This week, Blake and Erin peruse the previews and talk about which ones look like they'll be worth reading and which ones they're probably going to pass on. And they also discuss the most important question: just how "all-new, all-different" does it really look like Marvel is getting?

And what's cool this week? Blake is enjoying Bizarro #2 and Will Eisner's The Spirit #1!
