ABC Podcast, Episode #50 ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL and visual aids

This special one-year-anniversary 50th episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by Awesomed By Comics' Greatest Hits. Order in the next 15 minutes and receive a full year of Awesomed By Comics episodes, normally free, for only $59.95. We make yet another plea for everyone to buy 18 issues each of Jeff Parker and Tom Fowler's Mysterius the Unknown, and not just because Aaron is immortalized as a muddy dirty hippie in this week's final issue. Garth Ennis takes it next level with Herogasm #2, and it's starting to sink in that Brian K. Vaughan's Ex Machina is actually going to end soon.

"The back-past" may be my new favorite saying.

Question: should it be hyphenated? Is it one word? I only ask out of a slavish devotion to punctuation.

Thanks for 50 great podcasts! (except for 23, which appears to be gone)

Aaron is like Elton John if Elton John was a tuber-eating mad botanist bent on the destruction of mankind and the erasure of his own humanity. Evie, I also do not like the Fantastic Four (beyond the original ten issues, natch), but might I suggest the four issue miniseries by James Sturm called Fantastic Four: Unstable Molecules? Mr. Fantastic is based on a real scientist, and this great miniseries focuses on the non-fiction drama that helped inspire Stan Lee to create the FF. Loved the Grant Morrison bit, Aaron. Congrats to you both! Maybe this Juggs subscriber will use the occasion to drop the Juggs-related bit and come up with some new stuff...but then again, maybe I won't (name that YA lit reference, Aaron).

"Flash back from the back past" is a phrase for the record books
