Hurry up and feed your face

So if you listened to the Year-End Awards Show and are curious as to why we sounded like runners or cokeheads or 12 year-old girls, it's because for some reason the silence deleter was extra sensitive and erased every pause either of us took for breath or contemplation. So it sounds like we're tumbling over each other and tryingtogetthroughtheshowasfastaspossiblesowefinishbeforesantacomes or something. The truth is that this is overall probably a good thing, as the show is already a good two hours, and would have been even longer without the deletions--but from the comments I've gotten from a few people, it was a bit exhausting to listen to. So, many apologies, and I hope it was still enjoyable. Happy New Year, and congrats to our winners!

Yeah, I figured that was what happened. I found it kind of funny actually - I just imagined that both of you had Jamie Madrox's power and each had created several multiples, and all those Evies and Aarons wanted to jump in and contribute to the discussion.

The worst part is that it ruined several of my Gloria Estefan songs.

Hey Guys! So while ego surfing in the middle of the night I came across this podcast. Jazzed to see that my book, Unknown Soldier, was getting some love I went ahead and gave you a listen. I thought the podcast was absolutely fantastic. You were both hilarious and really riffed off each other well. On top of discovering a professional, smart comics podcast, I was pretty surprised to be named one of your writers of the year (along with the great Jeff Parker). Plus you gave well-deserved mad praise to my good friend J.H.. Thanks for all of this guys! I'm digging it!

Peace,
Joshua Dysart

PS: I also wrote, with Mike Mignola, BPRD 1946, which came out in trade this year and BPRD 1947 which hit in single issues. Just in case that stuff wasn't on your radar. Excuse the gratuitous self-promotion. Fish gotta fly, man's gotta eat.

PPS: And story of the year!! Thanks Aaron! Glad you were feeling it.

Hey Joshua! So glad you found us (and enjoyed the show), and hearty congrats. We are famously ignorant about Hellboy, even though we always like everything related we read/see, so very excited to check out your stuff!

Joshua said...

Thanks again! I hope you guys like 1946. I think it's the most fun I've ever had writing.

I read Unknown Soldier just because of this show.

Holy crap. Awesomed By Cocaine this week.

Seriously though, the podcast was great despite the technical glitch and your "best of" choices were pretty damned good.

The real reason I'm commenting is to give Aaron some much deserved props for mentioning "Promethea." That's a must read for both Moore's writing and Williams's art. Williams draws desirable women without veering off into offensive Marc Silvestri/Jim Balent territory.

There was a period a number of years back where the only comics I was steadily reading were "Promethea" and "The Red Star." Artwise, it took some serious adjusting once I branched back out into other titles.

It was noticeable, but it didn't ruin the show or anything - it was just a little odd. Great fun as always, you two. I'm trawling your archives now and having a blast.

I love it so much when you guys sing. I mean, Aaron has musical chops and uses them to comic effect all the time, but it is so winning and lovely to hear Evie sing in that sweet voice of hers. No kidding, I listened to your duet 8 times in a row.
