Pick of the Week Podcast

Pick of the Week #244 – Brightest Day #6

Show Notes

San Diego Comic-Con is in full swing, but that doesn’t stop Conor Kilpatrick from picking Brightest Day #6 as the Pick of the Week, and Josh Flanagan and Ron Richards join in the fun to discuss the books they loved and hated from this week. Recorded under guerrilla conditions in their hotel room, the sound quality isn’t so great and the show is a bit short, but we hope you enjoy it. We’ll be back to full strength (hopefully) next week! (No show notes this week due to lack of time!)

  1. PoTW podcasts recorded during Comic Con always have the feel of desperate transmissions sent from the front line of a war.

    Thanks for the show guys! 🙂

  2. Husky indeed.

  3. This will probably be fixed by the time I finish typing this, but I’m just getting last week’s episode (243) even though it says 244.

  4. Still not 244. Am I in the past?

  5. Its 244 on iTunes

  6. Paul Montgomery (@fuzzytypewriter) says:

    You should now be able to listen to 244 on this page’s media player. 

  7. PymSlap (@alaska_nebraska) says:

    Do you guys have Con Plague?

  8. sounds like you guys forgot to bring the Purell 🙂

  9. Walking Dead Spoiler Alert!!!!!

  10. "Thomas Wayne likes to take a shot in the mouth" – That’d be akin to blasphemy if it didn’t make me laugh so much.

  11. Will you have the "scenes" listed and what point in the podcast they are next week? Becuase usually there is only one or two books I care about you talking about and I don’t which ones you’re going to be talking about.

  12. SLF! YES!

  13. JFernandes (@jdfernandes) says:

    RE: Dustin Nguyen – His art amazes me with each issue.  Absolutely love it.  (And I think Thomas Wayne was vomiting into his shoe.)

    RE: G.I. Joe Cobra #6 – My first interpretation of the "hallucination pages" was that they were just pages from the pamphlet that Serpentor printed and distributed.  Maybe it’s a mix of both.

  14. JFernandes (@jdfernandes) says:


    01:50 – Brightest Day #6 (POW)

    05:35 – Thunderbolts #146

    08:45 – Amazing Spider-Man #638

    12:47 – CBGB #1

    14;59 – Avengers #3 & New Avengers #2

    17:43 – DC Legacies #3

    19:37 – G.I. Joe: Cobra #6

    23:07 – Batman: Streets of Gotham #14

    25:00 – True Blood #1

    27:34 – Walking Dead #75

  15. @JFernades   Thanks for the run down!

  16. @JFernandes   Wow, thanks man.

  17. This one has an "iFanboy: Year One" vibe, due to its looseness and time-length, but with one major retcon: Josh is actually buying comics now.

  18. Whoever you got to impersonate Conor did a great job, but whoever you had playing Josh and Ron didn’t sound like them at all.

  19. That was indeed a short one. good job its not 11 o clock comics, they wouldn’t even have gotten onto the drinks roll call after half an hour.

  20. Josh and Ron sound like they went a little big at the bar the night before.

    I suspect Jameson shots- many of them.


    A side note- Does anyone else think that Moonstone is a lost character.

    I just dont get any sense that she would still be on this team- it almost feels that she is just on it to be on it

    b/c she was on previous team.  

    To me her character would always need an angle – an objective and she is just being portrayed here like she is punching a clock.

    Feels like she has completely lost her spirit.SHe has never been a major character fo rme- but there definitely feels like a vacuum here.

  21. Ron sounds a lot like Jason Mewes this week.

  22. @Joppe

    Oh my god.. I can’t unhear it. Jason Mewes saying intelligent things sounds weird.

  23. You either drinking and smoking and doing all sorts of debauchery to get voices like those or

    You are screaming like Jonas Brothers fans at Madison Square Gardens to get voices like those or

    You are doing both.

  24. or you interviewing the hell out of folks.

  25. awesome music choice!
