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.

Boy, this is a weird one. And not in an especially memorable way, except that we do break into Bobby Darin's Beyond the Sea partway through. Evie's sick as this, this, this and this this week, and didn't have the energy to both make her list AND do the show, so we did the show just based off of Aaron's list, with Evie never having to exercise her veto power except for the categories where Image's The Mission #4 won stuff, because she hasn't been reading that. But she should be, as should all of you, because it's good, but I don't want to tell you what it's about because that would ruin some of the surprise. Also FF, Catwoman, Strange Adventures and X-Men win, while Green Lantern and Secret Avengers lose in ways that are trite and goofy, respectively.

Oh and also, there's a brief technical hiccup where we lost the signal to the studio from our living room. SEE IF YOU CAN SPOT IT. (hint - I replaced the silence with the pokemon battle music, some cats and a gong.)

Oh and also also, if I were a betting man, which I am not, which is good because I would lose a lot of money based on how bad I am at cell phone poker, but that's beside the point, I would bet on there not being a show next week as I'm heading to Atlanta on Sunday. But you never know, stranger things have happened. Like this fish. That's a strange fish. And clearly it has happened.

This episode of the Awesomed By Comics podcast is brought to you by life's questions. Questions like:

1) What is the traditional dance of Assam?

2) Has Rod Stewart ever been in a comic?

3) What was the name of the OTHER "Enigma" song?

4) What is Aaron's name?

5) How can we get the kitten to stop going through the garbage?

And also we talk comics a little bit, with the cute little category thing that we do. Great weeks for usual suspects X-Factor and Power Girl, some Ultimate business leads to some Ultimate confusion, I'm pretty sure we dedicate an "eh" joke or two to Alpha Flight, and also Man Bull.

BTW - expect holiday hijinx (hyjinx? "Hi Jynx?") to lead to another late show next week.

This episode of the Awesomed By Comics Podcast is brought to you, once again, by the Spectacular Superfriends Show, which has become even more spectacular since last time, if you can believe that! Loki and Savoy steal the show, with additional wins for Abnett & Lanning's solid start to New Mutants, a fun villain reveal in Birds of Prey, and Sue Storm's awesome hair. Also Smallville was Smallville for the last time. But seriously, come to the show on Thursday. You'll be awesomed by it.

This episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by The Spectacular Superfriends Show on May 19 at Littlefield in Brooklyn, starring Adam Warrock, the Ampersands (aka Aaron), Michael Kupperman, Daniel St. Germain and Chris Gethard, the proununciation of which we experiment upon (was really trying not to end this sentence with a preposition). We of course talk about the new eye-candy Thor movie, as well as excellent editions of Heroes for Hire, Herc, Annihilators, Sweet Tooth, Blue Estate and Secret Six. Fear Itself continues to inspire ambivalence, which does not mean indifference so please don't yell at us.
