Pick of the Week Podcast
Running Time: 01:00:00
May 10, 2009 – Last week Ron was away, and this week Conor is off jetsetting about the globe. Luckily we have a fantastic group of pinch hitters, and this week Jim Mroczkowski joins us to talk about how he hates gruesome horror comics, yet doesn’t. Ron has event fever, and Josh says “That’s mighty queer.”
00:02:42 – There are so many good things about Ron’s Pick of the Week, War of Kings #3, and the event as a whole that we struggle to recount it all.
00:12:25 – One even isn’t quite enough, as Jim and Ron gush even more about Cable #14, while Josh waits.
00:16:44 – Jim was here for Flash: Rebirth #1 and Jim’s here for Flash: Rebirth #2.
00:23:46 – There are mixed opinions of Irredeemable #2, but everyone thinks it’s pretty good.
00:30:48 – Against all odds, Jim really liked Terror Inc. Apocalypse Soon #1.
00:33:57 – It turns out that we’re only just about halfway through the whole thing with Astro City: Dark Age Book 3 #1.
00:35:09 – Human Torch Comics #1 was a nice little tale, complete with goofy golden age backup.
00:36:41 – Something’s got to go wrong with The Mighty #4 some time. Right?
00:37:26 – Final Crisis Aftermath Run #1 was a rollicking good time, and also understates “aftermath”.
00:38:37 – kwisdumb enjoyed Power Girl #1, but suffers a lack of appreciation for a talented artist.
00:41:24 – Ben from the UK solicits some advice about using Free Comic Book Day to preach to more than the choir.
00:45:17 – Chris wanted to let us know that X-Men Origins: Wolverine took place in the 70′s apparently.
00:46:16 – An anonymous caller wants to know if it’s worth checking out Kevin Smith’s latest, Batman Cacophony.
00:48:45 – Carl wants to know if there are any series we’d like to go back to, like Claremont is doing with X-Men Forever.
