This episode of the Awesomed By Comics Podcast is brought to you by the debut of what will likely be a Summer-long feature, in which Aaron recaps how 11 listeners, creators, and fellow podcasters will most likely do much, much better than Aaron at fantasy baseball. Victories abound for FF, DD, Mon Mon, The Mission, Magic Batman, Superlamb, and the niffles. Also, since Evie doesn't listen to the show, there's a bunch of stuff Chris from WRA and I have already covered, including Poker Face, the WW Costume, and last week's Unwritten. Oh, and also we're on , you should listen to find out about zoos near you!

This episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by Speed Racer Has a Posse, because Jesus has risen. Punisher kicks tons of ass, Spider-Man goes on a satisfying date for once, and Cloak and Dagger don't do much of anything. We reflect at length on the throbbing whatever that was Blackest Night, and spend unprecedented numbers of minutes talking about the cripplingly depressive entity that is Funky Winkerbean. We also give a shout out to our friends at the podcast and suggest you pay them a visit, because spring is for making new friends.

To North Philadelphia we won't go, on three comics is where we spent most of this show. Demo number three, S.H.I.E.L.D. number one, and Thor and the Warriors Four were all fun. Sparta USA has us both enthused, while Evie gets the Nemesis comics confused, Aaron loses to a listener at Pokemon battling, and we talk illegal downloads (don't you go tattling.) We're sponsored by Jaguars in a musical skit, and THIS SHOW MAKES KICK ASS LOOK LIKE $H!T.

Dr. Strange and various X-Men impress, as do their adorable Canadian boyfriends, and the reformed Rhino warms our hearts. Mike Carey's The Unwritten continues to kill it, and the ending of Christos Gage's Absolution sparks a lukewarm debate. We also get to the bottom of the misidentified Amazing Spider-Man cover artist controversy, which we admit was our mistake, but then they mess up the credits this week so WHO(M) DO YOU TRUST?Tell us what you think on , visit , and !

This episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by slightly off poems about the sad demise of one of our show's earliest fake champions. It's a great comics week, between Secret Six, X-Factor, Sweet Tooth, Avengers Academy, Thunderbolts and the debut of a new Axe Cop series. Great non-comics week, with the release of the first new Pokemon game in four years, about which Aaron is more excited than probably any other exciting past or future life milestone. And thanks to a movie theater's awesome screw up this weekend, we also witnessed the funniest 10 minutes of all motherf&*($in time.

This special double-sized* episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to
you by "inch time foot gem," which proves there is sadly no such thing
as a LOLBuddah, or something. In yet another week where good books get
fricking canceled, we tip our hats to She-Hulk and Blue Beetle, but say a warm, desperate hello to the healing pencils of Takeshi Miyazawa on two favorite titles. Be
sure to stay tuned (or fast forward if you get bored) until after the
closing music, when Saddest Guardian™ Scar brings you a
not-to-be-missed bonus Origins & Omens backstory about Evie and
Aaron.*"Double-sized" in the way that She-Hulk and Incredible Hercules were "double-sized" this week, in that we went over our normal show length by like 20% or so.

Watery books like Submariner: the Depths and Spider-Man Human Torch: Bahia de los Muertos float to the top, as does Abnett and Lanning's start on War of Kings, which breaks Aaron and Evie's hearts on behalf of Ronan the sad, sad Accuser.Be sure to get both Episode #37a

This episode of the Awesomed By Comics Podcast is brought to you by Fantastic Fangirls and the friendly, fundamentally first-rate feelings of their founder*, the fabulous Caroline, whose name really should begin with a different letter. Big wins for Dr Faustus, Hercules, Joker, Human Torch, Twilight Guardian, an old camera, and I seriously think the rest was all Bendis, Ultimate and otherwise. Evie is still AWOL, and she may or may not be back next week but YOU'LL NEVER KNOW BECAUSE THAT EPISODE WILL BE POLY-BAGGED.
*maybe? probably co-founder, but that breaks the alliteration. My sincere apologies to her partners over there if this information is faulty, false, fallacious, fictitious, fraudulent, or fishy.
