Pick of the Week Podcast
Total Running Time: 01:02:37
December 18, 2011 – Things get a little….heated this week on the Pick of the Week podcast as Josh, Conor and Ron wonder why they’re here and are reminded quickly that it’s comics…The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been comics. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But comics has marked the time. These books, these characters: it’s a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again.
00:02:03 – Josh is freaked out with glee by the unsettling Severed #5.
00:11:04 – BUT MAN was Uncanny X-Force #18 the best thing ever, or what? Ron and Conor think so.
00:17:38 – The second set wraps up with 27: Second Set #4, and Josh really dug this volume.
