ABC Podcast, Episode #61 and visual aids

This episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by the block-rockin' beats of a certain indestructible mutant MC who stepped up to throw down in our rap battle with the poseur zeroes at the War Rocket Ajax podcast. Breathe his hype man's rarefied air and suck it. Winners this week include Echo, Incredible Hercules, and Power Girl's kitty. Hey now. Also, come see us this Thursday night at MOCCA on a panel about Comics and the Press.

I for one think your reviews are fair. If a book sucks then say that it sucks. "Raging bullets" drives me nuts because of their refusal to say anything critical at all.

Correction: Nothing but Trouble is a terrible Chevy Chase movie, not a terrible Dan Akroyd movie. I regret the error.

Corrected Correction: Never mind, Nothing but Trouble is a terrible Dan Akroyd AND Chevy Chase movie. I regret having regretted the non-error.

Dear ABC, I have not listened to you two from the beginning, but long enough to know that you do NOT always review/pick, etc. just one of the big two books.

I mean, sure, maybe they are central to the podcast as of late, but I have some fine recommendations from you two from publishers very indie and deserving of more recognition.

I continue to listen, happily. :)

Power Girl #5 and Detective Comics #857? I don't know why don't you just call it Awesomed by Dan DiDio and by done with it...
