Running Time: 00:55:02

Pick of the Week:
00:01:30 – It’s been a a year, so Josh figured it was ok to pick Powers #21 as the Pick of the Week. Good thing it was awesome.

00:09:05 – Conor thought this week’s 52 was the best issue ever. Why? Batman.
00:11:09 – Ron and Josh were impressed with the first issue of The Immortal Iron Fist.
00:13:53 – Surprisingly, Ron was the only one who bought Batman/The Spirit #1 and LOVED it. Instead, Conor bought Guy Gardner: Collateral Damage #1, but somehow Josh didn’t. Conor and Josh lose! Ron is the winner!
00:16:11 – Josh liked Mike Carey’s Crossing Midnight #1.
00:19:16 – Ron was surprised to report that X-Men #193 and The Flash #6 weren’t that awful.

Trade Talk:
00:20:37 – We all read the graphic novel American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang and loved it.
00:23:20 – Conor and Ron render Josh speechless with a HUGE surprise relating to Fables!
