Awesomed By Comics Podcast
A weekly awards show/wrap-up of the week that was in the world of comics, hosted by a husband and wife team of journalist comic book fans in NYC. Weekly features include sound effects and swearing. Please also visit http://awesomedbycomics.blogspot.com.

This episode of the Awesomed By Comics Podcast is brought to you by Fantastic Fangirls and the friendly, fundamentally first-rate feelings of their founder*, the fabulous Caroline, whose name really should begin with a different letter. Big wins for Dr Faustus, Hercules, Joker, Human Torch, Twilight Guardian, an old camera, and I seriously think the rest was all Bendis, Ultimate and otherwise. Evie is still AWOL, and she may or may not be back next week but YOU'LL NEVER KNOW BECAUSE THAT EPISODE WILL BE POLY-BAGGED.

*maybe? probably co-founder, but that breaks the alliteration. My sincere apologies to her partners over there if this information is faulty, false, fallacious, fictitious, fraudulent, or fishy.

This episode of the Awesomed By Comics Podcast is brought to you by some pretty sweet aughts jazz, and the comic book analysis stylings of the delightful Kelly Thompson (from whom you can get lots more here, or here, or here, or here.) And please go get the latest episode of 3 Chicks Review Comics - it'll make us look influential. With Evie out of the country for the week, Kelly and Aaron stage a bit of a "getting to know your taste in comics" marathon, as you might expect from people who have never spoken to each other before, as opposed to people who have lived together for 6 years. Big wins for Wolverine and Jubilee, The Boys, Memoir, and ... Buffy! (Another first!)

This episode of Evie & Aaron and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Weekend is brought to you by compromised immune systems and the inability to STOP THE RUN. We give much respect to two future-tech-idea-driven comics at different ends of their runs (The Infinite Vacation and Vision Machine) pay tribute to the always exceptional Secret Six, and Aaron has a bit of trouble with the proximity of the "O" and "P" keys on the keyboard. Speaking of which, Heroes for Hire keeps rolling, Daredevil and Superman start to get back on track (despite a shit beginning and some ridiculous proportions for Lois) and we bid a fond farewell to Thor: The Mighty Avenger without having ever learned the identity of the mysterious "Mister K."

Happy New Year, again! This episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by Stump the Music Critic, in which Aaron puts Evie to the test about music trivia and naturally cheats like it's his job. This week's awards have praise, gasps and tears for Sweet Tooth, cheers for Thanos Imperative: Devastation and Who is Jake Ellis?, as well as predictable love for X-Factor, even with its questionable jokes. We hand out some thank yous for year-end gifts, and there is some extra Pokemon talk if you need to fast forward.

Let's all start the New Year off right - by taking care of the stuff we were supposed to have done last week! Namely, our year-end show. We trot out dozens and dozens of nominee-nominees, some of which become actual nominees, and of those, some of them will win! "When, When, When," you ask? "Why, right now!" we reply, also in Italian. We've also added a donate button to the website (http://awesomedbycomics.blogspot.com/) and you can also go there to check out the full list of nominee-nominees.
