This episode of the Awesomed By Comics Podcast is brought to you by Lastic Man, who probably should have either an E or a P in front of his name, but don't tell the lawyers. Big wins for Incorruptible, Ultimate Spider-Man, Thor: The Mighty Avenger and Taskmaster. Also winning big was the common cold, which soundly defeated Evie - and listener Jen, who soundly defeated Aaron. (post-credits, Aaron narrates his half of a couple of yugioh battles, which did not end well for him.) We bid a fond farewell to Leslie Nielsen, talk a lot about The Boys even though it didn't come out this week, and Aaron invents shoes.

This episode of the Awesomed By Comics Podcast is brought to you by Evie's Birthday, with a special message from her mom! As usual, big wins for The Unwritten and Echo, Bruce Wayne's back before he's gotten back, Aaron can't understand why he doesn't hate Walkin' Supes as much as he probably should, and the new Knight and Squire knocks Evie base over apex and makes her want to shove madam palm and 'er five sisters in the map of tassie, innit? But the book's banging on about faff gives Aaron the habadabs.

This episode of the Awesomed By Comics Podcast is brought to you almost entirely by the contents of New York Comic Con. (Comicon? Comic-Con? Spiderman? Spider-Man? Spader-James?) We take a break from our usual format of handing out awards to the week's books, and instead hand out awards to the weekend's events, with a smattering of books sprinkled in.

Whoa damn, lightning storm here is NUTS.

This episode of the Awesomed by Comics Podcast is brought to you by a special new game. Not to give anything away, but you're going to want to listen to this show at 4:07 PM, while re-gripping a badminton racquet. Matt Fraction continues Keiron Gillen's streak of strong Thor showings, Jonathan Hickman's FF continues to bring the intrigue, Judd Winick's Justice League: Generation Lost has some great character moments, Ultimate Spidey showcases Bendis's talent for natural dialogue, while Avengers does the exact opposite, and Moon Knight gets some baaaaaaad news. Also, Aaron is attacked by a kitten.

This very ordinary episode of the Awesomed By Comics Podcast is brought to you by our new kitten, Bo. Anyone who's ever listened to our show ever should know what we spend a fair amount of time talking about this week. (Boy Bands.) In addition to everyone loving an amazingly creative The Unwritten, Aaron gushes spoilerlessly about Joe the Barbarian, Evie digs the new Power Man, a listener wants us to start reading New Mutants again, and nobody likes bad storytelling timing or whores. Or whores with bad storytelling timing.

This very special episode of the Awesomed By Comics Podcast, featuring very special guest Chris Sims, is actually brought to you by some new developments at yet ANOTHER podcast. Thor has maybe one of the most successful weeks in the history of this show, with two amazing books out this week. There's some love for Welcome to Tranquility, Ultimate Mystery, the Batgirl/Supergirl teamup, Batman and Robin and some new comic-related video games, but bla bla bla LET'S TALK ABOUT THOR, BABY!!

This Labor Day episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by trying not to labor very hard, and also the US Open. And speaking of laboring, Taskmaster #1 is awesome. Other accolades go out to One Month To Live, Last Family of Krypton, Secret Six and Black Cat, while things related to hell are burning out their welcome. Aaron is obsessed with a new video game, and Evie saw lots of half-naked Iggy Pop this weekend, which she forgot to directly mention on the actual show but now you know.

Also, because we are dumb and forgot to link after we discussed them last week: here are webcomics Awkward Zombie and The Abominable Charles Christopher.

This very special episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by Chris Neseman! That's right, the famed podcaster from 11 O'Clock Comics and Around Comics joins us in our studio via wormhole from Chicago, and can be credited/blamed for the existence of Awesomed By Comics in the first place. Amadeus Cho is powerfully awesome, Thor is devilishly great, and Science Dog's bark is better than his bite. We talk about why Scott Pilgrim tanked, and get a recommendation for a web comic that is pretty much a sure bet to devour us whole. Also: Should you let your girlfriend win at video games? Tune in for the definitive answer.

This episode of the Awesomed By Comics Podcast is brought to you by DIN-O-SAURS, DIN-O-SAURS, which, hundreds of years ago, were the most. Speaking of Hundreds (wooooo segue!) Ex Machina comes to an end after 50 issues, and there is much oddly vague discussion, so as not to give away the ending for those who read this in trade. Avengers Academy shines, Old Bruce Wayne is a prick, Honey West is super fun, and Israeli snacks are delicious. Also there is an phat beatz.
