Pick of the Week #664 - Conan The Barbarian #1

It's the final show of the year and it's a long one! With much consternation, Josh Flanagan and Conor Kilpatrick discuss the week's comics. But that's not all! Conor goes through some extended "state of DC" therapy while Josh goes down cartoon memory lane! All this and the gain on Conor's mic was set too high which is the perfect send-off for a year full of dumb technical glitches! Running Time: 01:21:59 Pick of the Week: 00:02:20 - Martian Manhunter #1 Comics: 00:13:43 - Doomsday Clock...


Pick of the Week #662 - The Amazing Spider-Man #10

The name of the game is agreement, and Conor and Josh are getting good at it. Not about the Pick, or really about the other book in the lineup, but it's agreeable at the least. Oh and fun. It's pretty fun and we make a merlock sound at one point.

Pick of the Week #661 - American Carnage #1

Running Time: 00:21:06 Music: "No Excuses" Alice in Chains Learn...


Pick of the Week #659 - Farmhand #5

This week, Conor had a really hard time with the cold open. But we cut that out, and it was just for us. Also, Josh's mic was set wrong for....well, quite a bit. And what is the plural of Vox? Let's all have a crisis, but the good kind.

Pick of the Week #658 - Wytches: Bad Egg Halloween Special

Talksplode #81 - Katie Cook

Thanks to iFanboy Patrons, it's Talksplode time. Katie Cook is an instantly recognizable cartoonist, which is saying something, since she makes quite a bit of her living from licensed properties. From My Little Pony, to Fraggle Rock, to Star Wars, she's worked on a lot of comics. But lately, after moving on from her original creation, Gronk, she's working on a new series for Webtoons.com, Nothing Special. You can follow Katie on Twitter to keep up him, as well as visiting her...


Pick of the Week #657 - The Sentry #5

Conor and Josh are back at the helm on a week that made picking a winner a little dicey. But pick we must, because we must pick. Some things come to an end and many new things begin, as #1 issues fly at us with reckless abandon. The jamokes find common ground on at least one creator, and we barely talk about being old at all. Running Time: 01:13:54 Pick of the Week: 00:01:23 - The Sentry #5 Comics: 00:10:23 - Moon Knight #200 00:16:09 - Action Comics #1004 00:22:52 - Usagi Yojimbo:...

Pick of the Week #656 – Cover #2

Josh Flanagan is away this week so special guest Paul Montgomery steps into his old co-host role! There’s a lot to talk about so we had no choice but to go extra long to fit it all in! Why so long on a week with so few books? Well, Conor Kilpatrick unleashes quite a bit of Dick Grayson angst, for starters. Running Time: 01:22:00 Pick of the Week: 00:02:00 – Cover #2 Comics: 00:12:57 – Thor #6 00:21:05 – Nightwing #51 00:31:59 – Archie 1941 #2 00:40:25 – Strangers in Paradise XXV...
