Pick of the Week Podcast
Total Running Time: 01:06:59
July 17, 2011 – Conor struggles with one of those weeks which leads to a new segment where we try to understand why he didn't pick other books. Meanwhile, Josh and Ron struggle with too many good books to choose from and yet breakout into The Electric Slide? And then we hear some feedback from a listener and…well, shit get's real.
00:01:55 – The details of this week's pick of Batgirl #23 are broken down by Conor
00:08:30 – What was missing from Captain America #1 that didn't blow everyone away? (We still enjoyed it)
00:10:42 – Josh and Ron loved The Red Wing #1 from Jonathan Hickman, but Conor had a hard time with the oblique storytelling
00:14:28 – Well, it's no surprise that Ron loved X-Men: Schism #1, so much so that it's kinda annoying
00:18:40 – Massive public support for Ultimate Fallout #1, but Conor felt it was unnecessary. And yet it made Ron tear up.
00:22:42 – Green Lantern #67 ends the massive storyline and finally confused Ron to the point of displeasure.
00:26:10 – Ryan Stegman's art on Amazing Spider-Man #655 made the issue all that. The story? not so much.
00:29:37 – Much like the other books that he didn't pick, Conor thought Detective Comics #879 was solid
00:30:34 – Anytime there's good Hate Monger, Ron is there and he found that in Black Panther: Man Without Fear #521
00:32:45 – The surprise crossover in Starborn #8 made Ron and Conor's head spin. But how about those colors?!
