ABC Podcast, Episode #67 and visual aids

This episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by music, some of which is made by us or friends of ours and is good; some of which stole Evie away, and is bad. Very, very bad.

While Evie is AWOL, Aaron is aroused and impressed by Chrissie Zullo's hot babe cover of Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love #1, while being repulsed and insulted by David Finch's hot babe cover of Psylocke #1. Aaron also is incredibly enthralled with the intricate worlds quickly created by Mark Waid and Christos Gage in The Unknown: The Devil Made Flesh #2 and Absolution #3 respectively. Aaron was also shocked by the motivation reveal in The Mighty #10 and enjoyed the start of the Assault on New Olympus storyline, despite a last-page appearance by a certain 'snikt'-er who just has to get his greasy little sporks into every event, doesn't he.

Download/subscribe to the show here or in the right sidebar, and leave an iTunes review! (And while you're leaving an iTunes review, why not buy Aaron's band's album, And by The Ampersands?) Tell us what you think in the comments, or visit our show forum except don't do that yet because I haven't posted anything there.

My first or last of the week was definitely Stumptown. This is Rucka doing what he does best and it really is great. Also, I feel like I should defend Wolverine showing up in Assault (and I'm just as sick of him as everyone else) as he shows up with the New Avengers, which is Spiderman's team so it makes sense he would show up and doesn't seem like its 100% to sell comics because Wolverine is in it (I think that was Spidey's job being on the cover).

I would say Stumptown was my book of the week. It was a great first issue and the art is beautiful. Aaron if you need help in ultimate alliance just go to www.gamefaqs.com and look it up, that always works for me.

I'm only 1:33 into to podcast but I already regret listening to this at work. People are giving me the funniest looks because of all the laughing.

Don't worry, it gets a lot less funny.

And I just read Stumptown last night, because I thought Evie had taken it with her to TX - even though it was actually on my nightstand the whole time. I also thought it was excellent, though not as intriguing as The Unknown. It probably would have replaced Absolution as my runner-up book of the week.

Random question- why is the "We're gonna swear" warning at the start of every show? Just wondering. I was just glad you stopped doing the "Evie" voice besore it started to get too creepy.

Evie said...

Well, we figure it's good warning for people who are listening with their kids around or something. Just common courtesy. Also schtick.

Albertosaurus R3X said...

Evie - are you gonna talk about your picks for this week?

Evie said...

Well, I got kind of behind since I was out of town, but I did read a few, and Stumptown is definitely up there. Now I'm focusing on my picks for this weekend :).
