Pick of the Week Podcast

Pick of the Week #639 – Batman #49

Show Notes

Josh Flanagan and Conor Kilpatrick are in the saddle, and while Conor is recovering, it’s a long road. The fascinating world of Bendis’ DC work, and what we’re looking for out of mainstream comics remain the topics of conversation, and the ever widening lapses of memory. What were we talking about? Oh yeah: crimping. And Josh gets cranky about dual Patron Picks!

  1. Josh, were you thinking of Bulletproof Coffin for where you saw Shaky Kane before?

  2. That episode seemed so gloomy to me. Is everyone ok? I mean apart from the constant Conor sickness? Lol. Cheer up, guys! It’s comics!

  3. Get well. Get well soon. We want you to get well!

  4. Hey thanks so much for the Butter Powers! My wife was very pleased hearing of my new power, because she loves a lot of butter on the popcorn, and she does a lot of baking, which requires a lot of butter. (She’s a professional cookbook author.)
