Pick of the Week Podcast
Total Running Time: 01:00:53
February 05, 2012 – We don’t seem to remember why, but this weeks comics are highlighted by the ALL TOM Feedback section towards the end of the podcast. Because we’re crazy like that. Plain and simple. So crazy that in this edition we celebrate the use of a double negative. Plus, a comparison of a comic creator to a legendary punk band.
00:01:20 – It may have been a fill in issue, but Ron loved Animal Man #6
00:11:07 – Yes it has the trappings of a low level crossover, but Josh really dug Venom #13
00:15:15 – It’s hard to argue the quality of creators on Dark Horse Presents #8 and Ron really likes this anthology
00:18:46 – Shocking news from Josh while discussing Brubaker and Guice’s leadoff issue of Winter Soldier #1
00:21:41 – Uncanny X-Force #21 almost proves that these comics are just being made for Ron specifically.
