Awesomed By Comics Podcast Episode #141

This episode of the Awesomed By Comics Podcast is brought to you by a nine year-old who returned to his 3rd-grade class the joy of Pokemon through the power of persuasive letter-writing. We saw the Green Lantern movie (and didn't pay for it, thanks to what happened when we tried to see the Yu-Gi-Oh movie.) and then we watched the Green Lantern cartoon thing, and we gave a bunch of awards to Power Girl and Batgirl, two of the strongest and most appealing female characters in comics, both of whom we only have a few more months to enjoy in their current incarnations. Crap to not knowing what the hell is going on in X-Men Schism and we break down why the interview format worked well in Guardians of the Galaxy but it's annoying as all hell in Avengers.

But the real star of this show is PASTA AND VEGETABLES.


1 Zucchini
1 Yellow Squash
1 Vidalia Onion
1 Red Pepper
1 Stalk Garlic Stem or Garlic Chives
1 Box Pasta of your choice

Cube the Zucchini, Squash, Pepper and Onions and toss with the garlic stem and a little bit of olive oil and/or butter. Wrap in tin foil and bake at 400 for about 45 minutes. Do about half of a podcast. Cook some pasta. When the veggies are all baked and the pasta is fully cooked, toss the pasta with the veggies and sprinkle some shredded parmesan on top and eat while watching the end of Green Lantern: Emerald Knights which was pretty good. Then go back and do the rest of the podcast.

Loeb created that character you like so much.

Hardman's version is exactly the same character - go back an read the early issues it's still really good.

Hardman just makes it cool to like.

The fear is all around us- the fear is in the shadows- the fear is the cream filling in my oreos.

This whole event blows in the worst way- it's a fuc*ing bore.

And again- Avenger coffee hour/gab session -

Hating this doesn't mean you are opposed to character dev it means you want story dev too and not an episode of The View every issue.
No I take that last part back- atleast on the View there are different voices.

Anonymous: First of all, Hardman is the artist on Hulk, not the writer. The writer is Jeff Parker, who is consistently one of our favorite writers and has written stories that we happen to enjoy far more than Loeb's. I know Loeb created the character, and I give him credit for that, but I have read those early issues and with the exception of Red Hulk punching Uatu in the face (which was fabulous), I was not interested. If you were, that is 200% fine and I wouldn't judge you for it.

For the record, the animal turned out to be a marten. It wasn't just later commentaters that found this confusing. Apparently the resident said, after the man broke in, "Why are you carrying a weasel?" To which he replied "it's not a weasel, it's a marten." and then hit him in the face.

I hope Prelude to Schism #4 will reveal what this menace is. If it ends with "To be continued in Schism #1", I'm going to die.

The goat-attacker was, indeed, from my home State of West Virginia. Lincoln County. One of the worst places on Earth.

Reports differ as to whether he was beating the pygmy goat or attempting a sex act. Either way, it's a hell of a story.

Just finished Winick/Basri's first few issues in the just released PG tpb. Great stuff. Basri's art is fantastic- good expressions and action, and Winick's writing really seems to keep the same personality I came to like on the first 12 issues. Looking forward to the next trade. Bonus Whale Fact: Another creature (in addition to the horse) that the whale is closely related to is the hippopotamus. The game 'Hungry Hungry Hippos' was actually called 'Hungry Hungry Humpbacks', but some lame lawsuit forced the name change.
