Pick of the Week Podcast

Pick of the Week #698 – Thor #16

Show Notes

Having so many books to talk about this week leads to a new (old?) segment, Josh Flanagan shows a little episode 700 anxiety, and the hot weather causes Conor Kilpatrick to mentally spin out at the end of the show. Also, Josh forgets to read an important book while digressions into The Goonies and Christmas Vacation almost derail the entire show.

  1. Alexandra Petri is a very funny satire columnist for the Washington Post. I was very suprised to see her name on a Marvel comic!

    Just found this: https://www.newsarama.com/46657-she-hulk-annual-1-alexandra-petri-interview.html

    One of my favorite columns by her: https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/compost/wp/2016/11/14/my-fair-trump/?noredirect=on

  2. Nice show. Claremont does actually have a page in Marvel Comics #1000, can’t remember what it was though. Hang on… digital p64, it’s not very interesting.

    Good luck with the upcoming 700th! If you could ban two and three-part questions that would be useful!
