Pick of the Week Podcast
Running Time: 01:00:00
May 30, 2010 – With Josh Flanagan out lobstering in Maine (and possibly harvesting sea urchins), the hardest working staff writer in comics, Paul Montgomery stepped up to join Conor Kilpatrick and Ron Richards for comic book fun time talk. And boy, did he pick a doozy of a week, with two big Avengers launches and one of the weirdest books that anyone has heard of in a long time.
00:01:56 – Ron loves a good "getting the team together" comic, and the Pick of the Week, Thunderbolts #144, was just that.
00:10:04 – Ron and Paul loved the heck out of Thanos Imperative: Ignition #1.
00:13:08 – Secret Avengers #1 was fun, but there were a few "but"s.
00:15:49 – Justice League: Rise of Arsenal #3 was… just… bizarre…
00:21:26 – After Amazing Spider-Man #632 we are all now believers in Bachalo.
00:24:26 – One of Ron and Conor's favorite books makes a brief return in Amazing Spider-Man Annual #37.

00:28:51 – There was one great thing and one not so great thing in Fantastic Four #579.

00:32:21 – Was Choker #3 the best issue since the first… but the delay hurt.
00:33:36 – Paul made a nice discovery in Mystery Society #1.
00:35:54 – SilverAgeTom says goodbye to a great run with Power Girl #12.
00:38:51 – Wheelhands loved Wolverine Weapon X #13.
