Pick of the Week Podcast
Running Time: 01:19:16
March 20, 2011 – With management off in Chi-Town for C2E2, iFanboy.com staff writers Ryan Haupt, Jim Mroczkowski, Mike Romo, and Paul Montgomery commune for another takeover of the Pick of the Week podcast! It's a moose of a show, but it's filled with divergent opinions, Science, and behind the scenes drama. Plus, Jim has conniption over some frustrating photo referencing.
00:02:05 – Conor's Pick was Power Girl #22, and the guys all agree it was a blast from the prehistoric past.
00:12:45 – Wacky cover aside, Fear Itself: Book of the Skull was not worth the Atlantean flesh it was printed on.
00:21:16 – There's no mystery why Ruse #1 is the CrossGen title to latch onto. Everybody felt right at Holmes.
00:28:17 – Paul and Mike enjoyed the Reaver madness in Uncanny X-Force #5.1, but Ryan and Jim had more than a few reservations. Especially Jim. He got to growling.
00:35:16 – Xombi #1 was nun-stop fun, with a terrific reintroduction of a Milestone classic into the DCU.
00:40:18 – A new outfit in Amazing Spider-Man #656 has the team mixed, but everybody's got a greater appreciation for Spider-Sense.
00:48:27 – Bad Dog #4 sees the return of a much beloved series, but memories are a little fuzzy after a seventeen month absence.
00:51:31 – Jim is enthused by Iron Man #502's harkening to an old story Spider-Man storyline, but experiences berserker rage over the art.
00:55:46 – Paul crosses his vampires with his zombies sometimes, but Ryan really got a kick out of 28 Days Later #21.
00:58:58 – Much as Paul loves to see Ryan Sook pop up in a book, the art change in T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #5 through him for a loop.
01:02:11 – Mike delights in the wanton destruction of Paris in Northlanders #38
01:04:30 – Neb loves the sight of Crossbones in the rain in Captain America and Crossbones #1.
01:07:29 – Invasionforce has mixed feelings about Avengers Academy #1.
01:10:52 – finbarbat is looking for villains with staying power from the past 15 years.
