The gang is back together and there are a great many things to laugh about, and even some actual comic talk.

Pick of the Week #589 – Dark Days: The Forge #1

This week Ron Richards and Conor Kilpatrick talk about the week that was in comic books while facing their greatest enemy. Not the absence of Josh Flanagan. Not failing old man memories.

Pick of the Week #587 – Deadpool #31

It's a fifth week, but there's plenty to talk about in comics. There is both accord and great rift on the comics of the week, but we come out it of still speaking with one another, but Josh might be close to walking. Or Conor. Could go either way. There's Funko, and lots of series are ending, but Secret Empire continues, regardless of what you think, so deal with it!
