Pick of the Week Podcast
Running Time: 01:07:42
December 6, 2009 – A late night recording bring more wackiness and insanity as Josh talks about The Mighty #11, his pick of the week, and Ron and Conor have a hard time maintaining their composure, while navigating the spoilers thrown at us by the publishers. Any show with Liberace references and when you hear "Two of Us," you know you're in for quite a ride
00:02:28 – Josh is finally able to bestow the Pick of the Week honors to The Mighty #11, a book well deserving of a pick
00:10:24 – Conor's Pick hands down was Jonah Hex #50 and the rest of the guys are quick to agree
00:16:09 – Siege: Cabal gives us the first taste of the big Avengers event, Josh isn't sold on the art
00:20:30 – Meanwhile, Dark Avengers Annual looked great but is our first taste of a spoiler
00:23:01 – We get some more spoilers (maybe) with Blackest Night: Flash #1, but we get some more Captain Cold, which is always good
00:25:06 – The combination of Greg Rucka and Nicola Scott on Blackest Night: Wonder Woman #1 was great (even with 5 inkers!)
00:30:52 – Surprise! Josh and Conor liked Scalped #33, but wonder where to go from here?
00:32:31 – Ron was psyched to get the Empowered Special, but it left him and Conor scratching their heads
00:34:15 – Echo #17 blew Ron's mind, but might have been one of the best issues yet, as well as giving tons of answers
00:35:56 – Sweet Tooth #4 was probably the best issue of this series yet as Jeff Lemire's art got even better
00:37:23 – How good is Bendis and David LaFuente on Ultimate Spider-Man #5? They're amazing!
00:40:07 – Ron complains about the What If…? comics
