Pick of the Week Podcast
Total Running Time: 01:02:00
January 15, 2012 – Despite a dominating week by a little known up and comer comics writer, the veterans of the comic book industry were victorious this week earning the pick of the week nod. Beyond that, it was a strong week that lead to some startling confessions and some Real World reminiscing amongst the iFanboy gang.
00:01:42 – It might have been predictable, but James Robinson and Darwyn Cooke earned the pick of the week with The Shade #4
00:11:32 – Mere inches kept Wolverine and The X-Men #4 from the pick, because Nick Bradshaw is awesome. Jason Aaron is pretty good too…
00:16:01 – …as evidenced on the milestone issue Wolverine #300, which Aaron continues to rule over Wolverine. Despite Jeph Loeb and Simone Bianchi
00:18:21 – One of the best under the radar books for Ron is X-Factor and X-Factor #230 was no exception
00:20:54 – But Jason Aaron can’t be held back and Scalped #55 was a satisfying fight issue for Josh and Conor
00:24:37 – It seems like it’s wrapping up and Josh is okay with that as The Unwritten #33 was good
00:26:41 – Man, we keep coming back to Jason Aaron, but Punisher Max #21 deserves a shoutout
00:28:20 – The energy and momentum of The Activity #2 cannot be denied
00:29:17 – Sometimes crossovers don’t always work so well, as evidenced in Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E. #5
00:30:33 – New Avengers #20 was good as always, but Ron feels like he’s read this already
00:31:27 – There is no better super hero book than Invincible, and Invincible #87 is no exception
00:33:21 – Ron was really impressed with Scarlet Spider #1 by Yost and Stegman, great starting point
00:35:43 - Captain America #7 looks great but both Conor and Ron couldn’t care less about the story
00:37:49 – The Top 5 Community Picks of the Week.
00:40:08 – TheMythicalReader gives some great reviewin’ of Batwoman #5
