Pick of the Week Podcast

September 11, 2011 – It’s a deluge of comic books! We embark on “The New 52″ from DC Comics as we rate and review all 13 of the new DC Comics releases, as well as a ton of books from the other publishers in the world. It’s all comic books, all the time, so it’s a bit longer than usual, but it’s something we must do, for you.
