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

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Carolers are singing, gifts are being wrapped, and there's a new Star Wars movie in theaters! This week, Blake, Erin and Jason take a look at the first standalone movie in the franchise, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

And what's cool this week? Jason has enjoyed the first season of Designated Survivor, while Blake was charmed by the DC Rebirth Holiday Special.

After a long (and unplanned) hiatus, Blake, Erin, and Kenny are back to review the latest Marvel film, Doctor Strange. How does Scott Derrickson's film live up to Stan Lee and Steve Ditko's second-most-famous creation? Does Benedict Cumberbatch earn a place among the MCU's greats? And will Blake ever learn to pronounce Chiwetel Ejiofor?

And what's cool this week? Kenny is all about The Flash Season 3, Erin is reading Stephen King's The Dark Tower and Diana Gabaldon's Outlander, and Blake's unabashed love for DC Rebirth continues with Flash #9.

And what's cool this week? Both our hosts were wild about Disney's Zootopia, and Blake gives his praise to Valiant's A&A: The Adventures of Archer and Armstrong.

Once again, Free Comic Book Day has come and gone. Blake and Erin spent the day at BSI Comics, hanging with the readers, talking about nerd stuff, and having a blast. This week, they review some of this year's FCBD offerings and get in-depth with their thoughts on Captain America: Civil War!

And what's cool this week? Erin is looking forward to Ron Miscavage's book Ruthless, while Blake is doing a simultaneous read of Iron Man: Armor Wars and Captain America: The Captain!

It's the merry, merry month of May, and that means the summer movie season is about to kick into gear. This week Blake and Erin take a look at all the big releases from Captain America: Civil War through Suicide Squad, with stops along the way for some X-Men action, a visit with Pixar's favorite fish, and a heated discussion over this summer's most divisive movie, the Ghostbusters remake!

And what's cool this week? Erin is continuing her Stephen King kick with Pet Sematary and Blake has enjoyed Avengers: Standoff and The Final Days of Superman.

It's Erin's turn to pick! In this episode, she turns to the kung-fu oddity Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky. What lies at the core of the Manga-inspired 1991 prison flick? And will Blake be able to survive it?

And what's cool this week? Erin just keeps watching trailers over and over, with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Suicide Squad occupying her time, while Blake enjoyed the first issue of Marvel's Poe Dameron series.

Blake and Erin are back with a new recording set-up -- how better to test it out than to have Erin rail at the crew of The Walking Dead? This week we get super-spoilery on the season six finale, talk about Jeffrey Dean Morgan's introduction to the show, discuss the season and the upcoming Fear the Walking Dead, and place our bets on the hashtag of the moment: #WhoIsIt?

After a quick email inspired revisit of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, it's time to ask what's cool this week? Erin is reading everything in the universe, especially Stephen King's 11/22/63, while Blake brings us a double-dose of comic pics: Jughead #5 and the final issue of Batman and Robin Eternal.
