Pick of the Week #574 – The Dregs #2

Somehow we end up giving you 10 bonus minutes of great comics talk as Ron Richards and Conor Kilpatrick tackle the tough subjects of today’s modern comic book reader.

Thanks to iFanboy patrons, it's another iFanboy comic creator interview, or as we call it, the Talksplode.

Pick of the Week #572 – Kill or Be Killed #6  

Caw! It’s time for comics. Some are good. Some are “fine” and others are, as always, infected with that damned Terrigen mist cloud. There’s a bit of rebar talk, and genuine enthusiasm for socks. All that, and dual Rebirth ratings in our make up segment. Also, see if you can find Conor referencing Project Greenlight season 3. It happens. And more. Running Time: 01:08:46 Comics: 00:01:46 – Kill or Be Killed #6 00:11:15 – Monsters Unleashed #3 00:15:56 – Superman #17 00:18:34 – The Mighty Thor #16 00:22:35 – Batman #17 00:28:25 – Nightwing #15 00:31:29 – Super Sons #1 00:32:22 – Daredevil #17 00:34:40 – Mother Panic #3 Ratings: 00:38:00 - Justice League of America: Rebirth #1 00:42:03 - Batwoman: Rebirth #1 Patron’s Choice: 00:47:32 - The Wild Storm #1 Patron Thanks: 00:55:01 – Chris Ferullo 00:56:24 – Matt Baron 00:56:48 – Joey Rosenberg 00:57:24 – Brad Page Audience Question: 00:58:18 - Adam asks a completely new question about numbered print runs in comics.

Pick of the Week Podcast – Episode #570 – The Flintstones  

Some Chaykin talk, some gentle ribbing, Mark Wahlberg, and plenty of dislikes to go around, but some actual thoughtful talk about comics, somewhere in the middle.

Special Edition Podcast – Powerless  

Who would have thought we'd ever see a sitcom based in the DC Comics Universe? Well, here we are. Possibly the apex of the superhero media frenzy, or just another chapter.

Special Edition Podcast – Riverdale  

It’s time to go to a place where things are simper, quieter.

Running Time: 00:25:22 Music: “Sugar Sugar” The Archies

Booksplode #17 – Russian Olive to Red King  

It’s back! Thanks to our awesome Patrons, it’s the return of the Booksplode! What’s a Booksplode you might ask?

Pick of the Week Podcast – Episode 567 – Southern Bastards #16  

Say that our podcast is Electro and… It’ll make sense when you listen. Maybe not, actually. Ron, Josh and Conor are back with some comics that were chosen by us to read, and others that were chosen by people who specifically wanted to punish us. But their vindictive voting cannot stem the tide of a good time talking about comics and rating (rating) things, plus TR Talk. Why hasn’t Ron watched Friday Night Lights?
