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
This (late, apologies) episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by Two and a Half Men! Two and a Half Men! Two and a Half Men! who, it must be said, have done it again. Evie and Aaron freak out a little over X-Factor #39, and strenuously respect but deny Peter David's request not to spoil it. As a result of all this Dark Crisis Faces of Death Evil Reign of Bad stuff being a big downer during this new real-world era of Hope and Change (and bankruptcies and layoffs), Marvel's delightful all-ages books win big, although Dan Slott also gets major points for bringing actual Avengers back to an Avengers book.

Hey kids, just a note that if you're waiting for the Episode #32, it will probably be up some time on Monday, apologies. We got a late start, and then Aaron's computer crashed 45 minutes into recording, so we had to slap in some enthusiasm and start over. Many thanks for your patience.

This episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by the Forkies, who are enraptured. In a week where the Big Two fight for easy press, the biggest story for us is the beautiful conclusion of I Kill Giants, which made Aaron cry even harder than the end of Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. Captain Britain and MI13 turns in another fine chapter, and two series starring kick-ass ladies come to a premature end. SPOILER: Batman died. SPOILER TWO: Batman will be alive again soon enough. Happy new president week!

ALSO: Because we got a lot of follow-up questions to last week's show--here is the link to the iTunes store for Aaron's band, or search for "The Ampersands" (album called "And") at Rhapsody, Napster, eMusic, CD Baby, or wherever you get those things.

This episode of Awesomed By Comics is sponsored by... oh lord I can't even type it, let's just say that Aaron has sunk to new lows and move on. It's a colon-friendly show as Black Lightening: Year One, Submariner: The Depths, Sandman: The Dreamhunters, and others score big, not to mention the Shredded Wheat. Aaron finally plugs his band, and Evie gets weepy over hamsters in love. Starring special guest stars the Philadelphia Eagles.

This episode of Awesomed By Comics is sponsored by Frogfucius, who say "Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in getting up every time we do. Ribbit." Aaron and Evie ring in the New Year with piles of praise for Hercules, Incognito and Gigantic, but find the Holocaust disappointing. New Year's resolutions include less eating and more shitty music. Also, could we see some more Wolverine in '09? We'd really like to learn more about what makes that guy tick.
