Pick of the Week Podcast
Total Running Time: 01:01:43
June 5, 2011 – Suburban Tragedy as the guys have a ton of comics to discuss this week, an embarassment of riches in fact. Throw in an e-mail asking for opinions on the DC Comics reboot and you've got the makings for a podcast, good thing we were recording…
00:02:20 – Conor's excitement for Criminal is back with Criminal: The Last of the Innocent #1!
00:10:49- Event books mania! We start with Fear Itself #3, which Conor compares to Transformers 2.
00:15:27 – Flashpoint #2 comes in with a bit of a "shocking" ending for Ron! (heh heh– get it?)
00:19:07 – The world of Flashpoint kicks off with Flashpoint: Batman, Knight of Vengence #1 and it's the clear hit for everyone.
00:21:02 – In Flashpoint: Abin Sur, The Green Lantern #1, not much is different aside from a clear movie influence.
00:22:35 – Conor didn't like Flashpoint: Secret Seven #1, but oddly enough, Ron did.

00:26:00 – If you're looking for sci-fi genre fun, Ron thinks you should try 50 Girls 50 #1.
00:28:03 – The multiple personalities get that much better in Moon Knight #2 and both Conor and Ron loved it.

00:33:16 – Josh feels like we're headed for a conclusion to the greater story with Hellboy: The Fury #1.
00:37:15 – One of Conor's favorite issues in a while, Jonah Hex #68 is a great one room mystery.

00:40:01 – The Marvel Zombie Christmas Carol #1 was surprisingly enjoyable, with some great art.
