ABCP Episode 173 -- OCTOBER SURPRISE

Oh hiiiiiiiiiiii. Sorry, we've been locked out of the house for the past two years, nine months and 12 days, it was incredibly inconvenient, the cats are pissed. The point is, since the last episode of Awesomed By Comics, we've had another kid, moved, had a combined four jobs and blah blah blah you don't care. The point is, we got away this weekend and bought some comics and recorded an episode to talk about those comics, some of which are new this (last) week, some of which are not, all of which confused us because what is even going on in comics. We don't know when this will happen again, so join us as we struggle through. MISSED U BBs.

ABCP Episode 172 - THIS IS NOT A DRILL

Happy New Year! In this episode of Awesomed By Comics, we talk about some books we missed, wonder what happened to events, and look back on--what? Why are you looking at us like that? Why is that vein popping out of your forehead, are you having a--wait why are you screaming STOP SCREAMING! WE'RE SORRY, WE'RE SORRY OKAY?!? WE'VE BEEN BUSY! WE STILL LOVE YOU! WE'LL CHANGE, WE PROMISE WE'LL CHANGE!! So yeah, after nine months of three job changes each, two coasts, lots of stress eating and zero podcasts, we bring you a brand-spanking-new episode of Awesomed By Comics to kick off 2014. It's not a Year In Review show because we had very little year to review, and it's not a Week In Review show because we talk about comics over several weeks, but it is a real show and we did put in effort so we hope you'll give us another chance. Our New Years Resolution is to do this at least once a month, so we're counting on you to HOLD OUR ASSES ACCOUNTABLE. Special thank you to guest star Devon Malo...

ABCP Episode 171 - DIE HARDERER

This episode of Awesomed By Comics is not to be confused with Episode #170, which was fully recorded and edited (on Oscar Night no less), but then infected with a technovirus and now lives in its own pocket universe where you can hear it if you listen extremely closely during the 187th minute of R.E.M. (the sleep, not the band). We're actually at a place where we're giving awards to the current week's comics, although it may or may not be the same current week when this is actually released, you'll never know. Thanks for hangin in, partners.

ABCP 2012 Year In Review

Yearly Awards for what we thought this weekend was the best of the last year! Turns out we only did 10 shows last year. We're shooting for at least a 50% increase this year. There's a TON of stuff we didn't get to read - so tell us what your favorites were! What did the fish say to the other fish in the fish place? Something smells fishy to me!

ABCP 2012 Year In Review

Episode 169!

This episode features a show within our usual show within a show, so you know it'll be special! Lots of winners from the last few weeks. And from this week too, because Aaron didn't know we could go back and use previous weeks. If he did, all of his winners would be from Maus. The most important thing is that you go to www.thisisyouradventuretoo.com and listen to The Ampersands' latest album, then purchase it if you enjoy it! That way we can make more albums, and also make more goofy theme songs and fake commercials for you guys.

ABCP 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! As always, leave your comments or picks on our blog and leave an iTunes review if you like the show.

ABCP 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. As always, leave your comments or picks on our blog and leave an iTunes review if you like the show.

ABCP 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.

ABCP 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. As always, leave your comments or picks on our blog and leave an iTunes ...
