Pick of the Week Podcast

Pick of the Week #56 – Checkmate #8

Show Notes

Ron Richards pulls Checkmate #8 out of his hat and shocks his fellow iFanboys. Civil War #5 didn’t deliver the goods, we’re sick of Iron Man and we still love The Escapists! You HAVE to read Project X: Cup Noodle (yes its manga!) We also answer listener e-mail and voicemails.

NOTE: There’s a phantom audio glitch in this week’s podcast about halfway through. We apologize.
