Pick of the Week Podcast
Running Time – 00:59:25
March 1st, 2009 – We’re in San Francisco for WonderCon, it’s late, Josh is punchy and we’ve got G.I. Joe on the brain. No show notes due to thhe fact that we’re at the convention all weekend, so accept our apologies and enjoy the madness.
(thanks to miyamotofreak for the show notes!)
00:02:10 – Ron wants you to jump on with Savage Dragon #145, his Pick of the Week. Don’t miss the derail!
00:10:25 – The discussion of New Avengers #50 confirms that Josh’s love for a certain Clint is in need of intervention.
00:17:27 – Green Lantern #38 is clearly building up to the Rainbow War (or The Blackest Night if you want to be all manly about it).
00:20:40 – Battlefields: Dear Billy #2
did not show up at several LCSs (including mine) so all I can say is I
think it’s Josh and Conor’s Pick of the Week (as I tried not to listen).
00:24:05 – Justice Society #24 has Josh asking “Why does Power Girl need headgear?”
00:27:03- Ron is wrong about Gigantic #3 (it’s a 5 issue miniseries not an ongoing).
00:29:21- Apparently, The Sword #15 is some Garth Ennis shit.
00:30:48- Umbrella Academy Dallas #4 is not really talked about as much as mentioned for an awesome cover.
00:31:48- Captain America #47 has the iFanboys wondering if Namor is the new Tony Stark.
00:34:11- GI Joe Origins #1 apparently came out last week but like Battlefields this week, had a staggered release.
00:39:56- JumpingJupiter says, “Mouse Guard is a shining example of why sequential story-telling is important” about Mouse Guard Winter 1152 #5.
00:42:22- ohcaroline is going to save $3 every month after reading Thunderbolts #129.
00:45:26- SilverAgeTom has his entire Hulk #10 review read by Ron. Nice!
00:48:31- iFanboys add some filler with Fantastic Four #564.
00:50:28- Ultimate Spider-Man #131 was close to the Pick of the Week for Conor, the Ultimatum fan.
00:51:10- Nova #22 has Josh declaring “Cover of the Year.” My Wondercon Savage Dragon variant disagrees.
00:52:59- A big quality drop-off with Mighty Avengers #22.
00:54:40- Become an iFanboy member and play Russian Roulette with comic books or buy a bootleg Watchmen shirt. Hurm.
