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 Skullkickers #6, in stores now from Image Comics, and if I knew how to make animated gifs, I would make one that just flashed SKULLKICKERS #6 IN STORES NOW and had muppets. Our good friend Chris Sims (author of the first story in the aforementioned Skullkickers #6) sits in for Evie, who just presented a paper on Gene Simmons at a music academia conference in LA, and I am told it went "good." This episode is a true celebration of comics, which includes men of iron, fists of iron, girls of power, men of power, jims of gordon, roller disco, and a whole lot of mourning, including some of our own for the passing of beloved creator Dwayne McDuffie.

This "top 9!" episode of the Awesomed By Comics Podcast is brought to you by our good friend and special guest David Wolkin, and his delicious seasonal recipes. Big wins this week for blue covers, Johnny Red, a pinkish surfer, red and green hulks, a grey ghost and a yellow-bellied superman analogue. Booster Gold however...well, it did technically "win" something. Plus we stand up for the motor city, chat about Chat, try to process S.H.I.E.L.D. and remember briefly that Force Works existed, although we will all have forgotten again by next week.

This episode of the Awesomed By Comics Podcast is brought to you by a very irritated Aaron, who became even more irritated after he edited the show and realized he wasn't actually as irritated as he thought he was, and that he interrupted the show during the editing process for no real reason. Also the dryer caught on fire yesterday and a cat clawed me in the leg and whatever X-FACTOR WAS GREAT AND SO WAS POWER MAN AND IRON FIST AND BATGIRL AND OMG THEY KILLED A WHOLE BUNCH OF PEOPLE THIS WEEK AND THE WHOLE HOUSE SMELLS LIKE BURNED OUT DRYER AND SOMEBODY SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAVE MEEEEEEE. Also, BOYS RULE GIRLS DROOL!

This episode of the Awesomed By Comics Podcast is brought to you by Evie's back! Seriously, her back donated a year's worth of hosting fees, and while we're not quite sure where it got the money, we're thankful for the gesture. We recorded this show instead of watching the Super Bowl, because we don't really care about either team, and would rather it have been a matchup of the two generic teams on the Best Buy circulars telling you to get a new tv for the copyright-free "Big Game" (we've got $100 on the team with the all blue helmets, vs the team with the all red helmets.) Meanwhile in comics land, wins for Incorruptible, Spider-Girl, Secret Six, Jimmy Olsen, a cleavage-less issue of Gotham City Sirens, and a much-needed breather issue of Sweet Tooth. Plus a rare OGN win leads Aaron to reminisce about working at a copy shop in the mid 90's.
