Awesomed By Comics Podcast Episode #149

This episode of the Awesomed By Comics Podcast is brought to you by the hurricane that we pretty much slept right through, and which did not give us an opportunity to bond while "hunkering down" but which was also far less destructive than it could have been which in the long run is a better thing for everyone. Winny wins this week for Mystery Men, Gotham City Sirens, Space Wolverines, Punishers, Captains America and Buckies and Confusingly-numbered Iron Man minis. We bid a fond farewell to this confusing iteration of Wonder Woman, and lament that the last-ever appearance of Oracle was as a side character in a hack-ass book. Plus Dr Who, Zelda, Vs. System, Pokemon Board Games, Iron Man Armored Adventures, The Origin of Stan, AND MANY MORE!

The 150th is nigh! Be aware of street preachers and disco remixes!

Awesomed By Comics Podcast Episode #148

As we creep closer to our 150th show, this episode is brought to you by the return of the Zen Koan .... which quickly devolves into rap videos and masturbation jokes. Many loves for Daredevil, All Nighter, Journey Into Mystery, The Stuff of Legend, Generation Hope, and Power Girl. Not many loves for talksploitation comics and the death of fun. Many shenanigans including several trips to the MyTube, followed by FriendFace and BookSpace. Also we need a damn window in our studio. Or at the very least, a donkey with a box fan attached to it who can mill about the house spreading its cool donkey breeze.

Awesomed By Comics Podcast Episode #147

Whoa Nelly! This 147th episode of the Awesomed By Comics Website is brought to you by a little speed lesson! You got a need for speed? Then let's rev it up! Speed-style! VROOM VROOM VROOOOOOOOM.

This week we bid a melancholy and vaguely disappointing farewell to Batgirl, which has been one of the entire industry's most solid titles, month-after-month, for the last two years, and whose lead character is not going to be appearing in the relaunch stuff for a while anyway. We also bid a lousy farewell to this incarnation of Birds of Prey, who deserved better than the sendoff they got. As Thor might apparently say, "Weak sauce, brah. Totes weak sauce." The Unwritten takes an interesting turn, and might be setting itself up for a pretty ballsy move, while Cloak and Dagger make a relationship book work in the midst of an event tie-in. Plus Squrlgurl, and also Evie's in a book, kinda.

And if this isn't enough Aaron for you, or if you want to listen to a bunch of guys talk about whatever for a couple of hours and have a lot of fun doing it, you can listen to last week's episode of Randumb Idiocy featuring Aaron, our pal Euge (AKA Adam WarRock,) our other pal DeWayne Feenstra, his brother who is now our pal David, and our lettering - slash - pigeon-hero-maker - slash - make-someone-in-a-book-named-Evie pal Joe Caramagna.

* Also of note: Yes, I am aware that I forgot to bleep out the name of that guy's city, but the rest of his letter, had we read it verbatim, would have made it clear that that's where he lived anyway.

** Also also, here's that comic Evie mentioned. Please note that while it is drawn quite well and is pretty clever, this made me sad to read.

Awesomed By Comics Podcast Episode #146

This extra-long episode of the Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by us soliciting ideas for our (now just four episodes away!!) 150th anniversary! That's right, Awesomed By Comics has been around for 150 years, 1874-2011!!

Yes it does. Several of those years count as two or even three, if the crops were particularly bountiful.

Anyway, this week renewed a lot of our faith in comics. Strong debuts for Rachel Rising, Severed, The Punisher, The Cape, Snarked and oh yeah, a certain new Ultimate hero. Strong endings for Secret Six and that thing about tennis which was silly but we loved it anyway. Plus great weeks for Irredeemable, Sweet Tooth, Thunderbolts, Hulk - MAN what a good week for comics. Also we talk about Iron Man Armored Adventures Season Two, which is off to a great start, and the next-to-last step for my band's next record which I've been working on and talking about for seriously at least two years.

Covers of the week: Red Skull Incarnate #2 by David Aja and Rachel Rising #1 by Terry Moore

And here's what I think was that great Moonstone costume from SDCC. There was a great Moonstone costume at SDCC, and this is a great Moonstone costume, therefore this may or may not be it. But we can pretend it was. Anyway, MORE MOONSTONES PLS is the takeaway from this.
