CONTEST TIME! This very special comic-related non-comic episode of the ABC Podcast is brought to you by the fact that it's CONTEST TIME! We go through about three dozen entries into our 30-word, juggling-inclusive, non-pandering, bananarama fanfiction challenge and eventually walk away with a winner! Who is it? YOU'LL JUST HAVE TO LISTEN TO FIND OUT unless we already emailed you by the time you're listening to this, in which case you already know it's you. If, in fact, it's you who's reading this right now. It might not be you. It might be someone else. If someone else is reading this, then you'll only find out who won by listening. But if YOU are reading this, you, our winner, whoever you are, then YOU might actually know who the winner is before listening to the episode, but you should listen anyway because you won. And also I used high-tech computer analysis tools on a cat chirp. 

A sincere thank you to all of you who entered - seriously every single one of your entries was fantastic, even those of you who sorta didn't follow directions, or who did follow directions but did so too obscurely for us to know. 

We had so much fun doing this, and it was a bright spot in what has otherwise been a relatively rough few days, so guaranteed we'll be doing another contest sometime soon.  And don't be alarmed if you don't hear from us for a while, because we're getting awfully close to babytime. But stay tuned and follow us on twitter and stuff and you'll be among the first to know what's happening and when we're coming back. :)

Aw yeah, ABCP is back with about 20 minutes of Evie, and almost two hours of Aaron and guest-host Chris Sims. We make a pretty awesomed announcement for us, which will result in a few weeks without shows for you, but it's pretty important. SMILEYFACE :)  Aaron and Chris agree on Batman, Mudman, Cartoon Batman, Geoff Johns, and some other stuff. Big wins for all that stuff, except Geoff Johns, plus some Atomic Robo talk, some The Boys talk, some Jem talk, and nobody at Marvel noticed that the Bendis record is skipping.

This episode of the Awesomed By Comics Podcast is brought to you by the third week of our 30-word, non-pandering, juggling-inclusive, bananarama fanfiction challenge, AND War Rocket Ajax, AND Copernicus Jones, AND a book that comes out in April - those last three courtesy of our guest host, the always high-minded Matt Wilson.  Amazing week for Jeff Lemire on both Sweet Tooth and Animal Man, some ridiculously fun ideas being thrown around in Infinite Vacation, some joyful X-Universe images, and some good words for Heart and Luther Strode. Also our kitten Bo sings a song with some shitty slap bass at the end.
