Pick of the Week Podcast
Running Time: 01:04:47
January 31, 2010 – Something was in the air this week – maybe it was the crap ton of comics that came out – that lead Josh to pick Detective Comics #861 as the Pick of the Week, and caused Ron and Conor to go a little insane on the show. And perhaps the dorkiest joke ever made occurred. All in all, it was a good time when it comes to talkin' comics while wearing an ascot and when Richard Dreyfuss makes an appearance.
00:01:28 – Josh rolls the dice with a million books to read and comes up Detective Comics #861
00:13:26 – The quality continues with one of the best comics around, G.I. Joe: Cobra II #1
00:15:27 – Coming in just in time for the movie, the finale to Kick-Ass #8 delivered
00:19:33 – Did the cover of Green Lantern #50 ruin things just a little bit?
00:22:19 – The ride up and down memory lane comes to an end with Archie #605
00:30:21 – The end is near! Astro City: The Dark Age Book 4 #1 starts winding this epic story down
00:33:01 – Conor's pick would have been New Avengers #61 purely for the super hero date humor
00:34:06 – The Walking Dead #69 gets urban and interesting for Josh
00:35:04 – Finally it comes to an end, Captain America: Reborn #6 wraps up anticlimatically
00:36:42 – Ron didn't like, but then loved Fantastic Four #575 and moloids
00:38:29 – Is there any better art than Tony Moore's on The Punisher #13
00:39:04 – Josh and Ron are loving the arc on Northlanders #24
00:40:13 – Desaad digs the focus on characters in Batman and Robin #7
00:42:51 – akamuu was impressed by Ultimate Comics Enemy #1
00:45:37 – PV from Chicago is wondering about Bendis' lack of success in Hollywood
00:48:31 – Art wants our take on the San Diego Comic Con being sold out so early
00:52:01 – Rob wants some advice on what to do when he's not into comics
