It's an honor just being nominated

As a little sneaky preview/enticement for the podcast, we decided we'd post our Panel of the Week and Word Balloon of the Week here on the blog after we record each show. There are a slew of other award categories and various other nonsense in the broadcast, but the aforementioned categories can do with some visual aiding. If you listened last week to me trying lamely to explain why my Word Balloon of the Week from Captain Britain was so clever, you know what I'm talking about.

You should be aware that these scans could get a bit unruly, as a)Aaron and I each choose a winner for each category, and b)in addition to talking about the victors, we tend to patter on about the ones we almost picked, so much so that they'll need to be equally spotlighted here.

Anyway, here we go--for context and screaming, listen to Episode 2!

Wha-hey! Good picks. I, in particular, like the guardians of the galaxy panels cos i was involved in the colouring process for them (ok, it was flatting the pages for the colourist but it was something, OK?)

Adam Warlock's history comment is usually attributed to Mark Twain.

(Going through all the old episodes. I was surprised nobody had commented on this.)
