This episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by comics-related pick-up lines, and yes this is a Batarang in my pocket. Abnett & Lanning, Jeff Parker and other unsung heroes prove yet again that we really don't need to be reading comics by anyone else, but we do anyway, so that we can be utterly underwhelmed by certain highly anticipated superstar snoozefests. Vertigo's Greatest Hits closes out a jolly good run, and a douche with a giant face for a torso doesn't get nearly enough time to shine.
