Pick of the Week Podcast

Pick of the Week #98 – The New Avengers #34

Show Notes

Now with all the original members! With Josh back from his overseas adventures, it’s clear he’s a bit rusty. But it’s still his Pick, so onward we forge. And the show opening has never been sung before. Actually, this may not be either. Thank you, California Kevin.

This week’s iFanboy Pick of the Week is sponsored by Jim Hanley’s Universe and NetFlix!
