Celebrating the Unpopular Arts

House to Astonish Episode 151 – the Homies Awards 2016

House to Astonish comics podcast annual awards - Atomic Junk ShopIt’s the start of a brand new year, and as is traditional on the House to Astonish podcast, we’re running through the comics of 2016 and handing out our annual gongs. This episode features the results of the 2016 Homies awards, with Paul’s picks, my picks, and the winners of the listener vote. We’re taking a look back at new series, old stalwarts, our favourite writers, artists and colourists, and the moments in comics that made us sit up and take notice this year. We’ve got unexpectedly good books, predictably good creators, astonishingly close votes, and shambolically tabulated results. Come hear what we enjoyed this year, and what the voting Housemates plumped for. All this plus a wooden piece of wood, a beautiful leather briefcase, and a perfunctory log fire.

The podcast is here, or here on Mixcloud, or available via the embedded player below. As always, let us know what you think, in the comments, on Twitter (where I’m @housetoastonish and Paul is @ifdestroyed), by email or on our Facebook fan page. And hey, it’s a new year, so time for a new look – why not treat yourself to a House to Astonish shirt from our Redbubble store?
