This episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by "Alphabet Bitches" by Lil' Wayne, which incidentally settles a question or two about Black Adam's late bride. I Kill Giants once again gets the gush treatment, and Final Crisis #5 barely qualifies for an award of its own. Awards also go to nasty jerks and a delightfully adapted PowerPoint presentation. Aaron presents an urban allegory to answer all your questions about how the likes of Ed Benes, Grant Morrison, etc. are allowed to keep doing what they do without consequence.

This episode of Awesomed By Comics is sponsored by a very nice and not bad-looking girl who is bored this evening, would you like to chat? In this very special show, Evie and Aaron interview a certain Big Shot Writer who may or may not answer all of your burning questions about a certain blockbuster "summer" crossover event whose "shocking" conclusion was released this "week". So be sure to stay tuned for that bonus segment about midway through. Also, Aaron gets excited about lots of green-skinned space babes, and the Punisher brings the hurt in the name of Our Lord and Savior. X-Men Noir debuts, albeit without any of these promised black X-Men, and Criminal #7 STEALS the show. HA HA.

This episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by More Comic Book Knock-Knock Jokes, because INTERRUPTING INTERGALACTIC STARFISH. Evie and Aaron are a little bloaty and slow after Thanksgiving, but still manage to get a bolt of disdainful adrenaline out of Batman RIP (and think Grant Morrison could learn a lot from Shang-Chi, Master of Kung Fu). The conclusion to Hickman and Ringuet's excellent Transhuman series is Monkey-tastic, and this time we mean the kind without Peter Tork.

As promised, the long-awaited Monkey Variant. Unlike the earlier Zombie Variant, this is an actual variant of Episode #24, we promise.

This episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by Practice, which makes pizza pies, Punisher plots and porpoises, in addition to perfect. Evie and Aaron try to think of what could possibly make Wolverine more badass and popular, and discuss why Mayor Hundred doesn't need to be. Andy Diggle's electrifying (GET IT??) first issue of Thunderbolts earns some nods.

Be sure also to download Episode #24a, the bonus Monkey Variant. Don't let the previous Zombie Variant deter you. Really.

Episode #23 of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by Pasta, because eyyyyyyy, how YOU doin? You wanna go get some wheels n sauce? Evie and Aaron gush over I Kill Giants, and wonder why Marvel keeps printing Wolverine fan fiction. Due to the success of last week's Zombie Variant, we include a special foil cover.

This episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by a Brand New Day--starring Barack Obama and decidedly not Mephisto-orchestrated--as well as some crap that Aaron made up about poor Oscar Hammerstein. A strong week for mini-series and one-shots holds up even under the yoke of a zillion Wolverines, and pretty art is everywhere. Fin Fang Foom and headless hookers excel.
