ABC Podcast, Episode #51 and visual aids

This episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by Funny Things That Happened To Aaron On the Way Home from Work on Thursday, as well as the Angel of Death, who's been a real insufferable prick this week. The stunning debut of Batwoman in Detective Comics faces off against the new Runaways creative team with glorious results, and Ms. Marvel is flying pretty high as well. Wonder Woman and Hercules both stand up to olympic-sized Greek god dickery, Aaron brags about his Canadar, and we talk some trash about colors. Happy Pride!

Aaron mentioned liking Sana Takeda's art in Ms. Marvel. If you guys haven't checked out Drain, a six issue mini from Image, you might want to look into it. As good as her work in Ms. Marvel is, her work in Drain is phenominal. Just a thought.

Also, thanks so much for the incredibly entertaining show. I've been listening for a couple of months now and I always enjoy it. Makes the work day a bit brighter. Keep up the awesome work!

Well, as I think I said, "Midwest" is kind of Aaron's catch-all concept for the universe of things he doesn't have any experience with. So please try not to take any offense. Thanks for listening!

Christina Strain is amazing!
But there's a lot of other well colored books at Marvel. :)

You can go pick up books just based on who is coloring them and know you're going to get something great.

As a small sampling off the top of my head,
check out Laura Martin's colors on Thor,
Dave McCaig's on Ghost Rider,
Val Staples' on Incognito,
and also John Rauch's Dark Reign coloring is great and not dark like you describe.
