Awesomed By Comics Podcast Episode #150!!!

This THREE EXCLAMATION POINT episode of the Awesomed By Comics Podcast is brought to you by 150 episodes of the Awesomed By Comics Podcast! So, including this one, I guess. (META!) We pause to look back on the last 3+ years of this little show, remembering some of the things we really liked ("Trinity?" Remember that?) and some of the things we really didn't like, which you can probably guess.

Meanwhile, we also do a regular show, for what was a monster week in comics in terms of sheer volume. Jeff Lemire and Travel Foreman's debut issue of Animal Man was easily the best of the relaunch issues, Evie has finally caught up on Garth Ennis and Russ Braun's The Boys so we can both talk about that now, some fun cosmic goings-on for Marjorie Liu and Phil Noto's X-23 and her gang, a fantastic #2 issue for G. Willow Wilson and David Lopez's Mystic, and a surprisingly solid start to Rags Morales and Grant Morrison's Superman. And then also we whine about books that were DUH NUH NUH NUH NAAAAAAH NUH NUH NAAAAAH etc.

We also annoint the official ABCP TEEN PATROL:

R.J. Washington (Commenter name: XandGunn)
Ryan Emmet (DocWhiskey)
Alberto De Jesus (Power Listener!)
Jennifer Rubinowitz (ABCP Yugioh Champion)
Laura Abe (Guyalice)
Dann Fuller (Another Power Listener, whose wife's debut novel you should all pick up! "The Princess Curse," in bookstores now!)
David Watts (everyone needs something in parenthesis!)
Greg Deaner (Lebeau2501)
and our very own Rick Jones / Snapper Carr, Ziah Grace.

Woot! Congratulations on 150! I look forward to the next 150! Keep it going you two. Your fans really appreciate it!

MVBrady said...

Yeah, congrats on 150 awesome shows! I think I've listened to and enjoyed every single one. And nice work by the ABCP Teen Patrol.

Alberto De Jesus said...

Congrats on your 150th episode! Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge and entertaining us.

Big ups to Ziah for leading the charge on the spread sheets.

Aaron, was it the vapors you thinking of?

Yeah it was all in good fun- but hey buddy- look in the mirror.

And let's not get on too high a horse being a comics "journalist"

aaron said...

Lebeau2501 said...

i dig the new take on the theme song.

maybe you could give a show sponsor to a local cat rescue or animal shelter.

(i just did one all tricky like)

@bird are you from Fort Collins? Small world.

Ziah Grace said...

Thank you Evie and Aaron for making such a great and consistantly entertaining podcast for over 150 decades!

It's an honor to be the Rick Jones/Snapper Carr of the ABCP, (even if I couldn't quite rally everyone to finish exactly on the deadline).

Also, I actually am a teen, so, there you go.

And, listeners enraged with my tardiness, worry not. Final tally will be (probably) definitely on the next show.

Regarding the somewhat odd results I sent you, you guys were REALLY into Trinity. It won some sort of award just about every week of the 1st year of awards. Same with Catwoman & Gotham City Sirens (which I did end up lumping together).

Dann said...

Big thanks to Ziah for bringing all of this together, stat-tracking wise. Those of us who logged episodes (who also get fist-bumps) wouldn't have done it without an organizer.

Bigger thanks to Evie and Aaron for mentioning The Princess Curse. Every mention helps!

And all of the creators whose work I picked up because of this show should thank you too. My wallet? Less thanks from it.

Grats, ABCP! I've been lurking since the start; I might've commented here once or twice before. I started listening in the middle of my freshman year of college; now I'm graduated. Crazy!

Thanks for all the awesome comics commentary and company during all-nighters and finals. I couldn't have made it without you!

Great show, and congratulations on 150 episodes. Love the new theme tune arrangement.

Eric Johnson said...

Awesome 150th to both of you. The show was enjoyable from top to bottom. I have only one question...

Can you please send me guitar tabs for the DCnU theme?

...just kidding. Here's to the next 150.

Lebeau2501 said...

So...I kind of want to listen to War Rocket Ajax this week, you know, since you two are on it, but those guys are really slow to post new episodes, apparently. I think they need to be given crap.

Congratulations on 150 years of podcasting! That's like a whole bunch of casting pods. So sweet. Seriously, your podcast is so very good and so very entertaining and so very awesomeferific. Please keep them coming!
