Wait, What? Ep. 135.5: Teen Titans Spotlight

Graeme McMillan

Behind the scenes of the latest podcast. Jeff Lester No More! Okay, that’s not entirely true — he’ll back back next week. The Lester Travel Schedule meant that he wasn’t available to record this week’s podcast, and so I took it upon myself to record the first (and, hopefully, only) solo Wait, What? ever because both Jeff and I felt really, really bad about springing another skip week on you with no notice. It’s not really a real episode — it’s only 22 minutes long! — but it does, finally, see me tackle the remainder of those questions you lovely listeners asked of us way back in December last year. Who said this isn’t the Mighty Marvel Age of Taking…  Read More…

Wait, What Question Time

Graeme McMillan

Yes, dear listeners/readers/Whatnauts of all shapes and sizes, it’s that time again: The time when Jeff and I invite your questions for us to attempt to answer before we end up getting sidetracked and talk about something else altogether by accident. With only two podcasts left before the end of 2012 (We’re taking the last couple of weeks of December off for the holidays; sorry), it seemed like a good time to try another Q&A podcast to try and talk about what’s on your minds for once. Well, on our minds after you bring it up. You know what I mean. You also know the drill by now: Leave questions in the comments section and we’ll try to get around…  Read More…

Bizarro Blog Post: Not Wait, What #100

Graeme McMillan

Above: Andy Ristaino covers the famous cover for Uncanny X-Men #100, from the now-dearly-departed Covered blog. And this is where you were probably expecting the 100th episode of Wait, What? to appear. Which brings me to a funny story…

Don’t Ask For Questions When You’re The Big Question Mark, or Something

Graeme McMillan

Firstly, if you haven’t seen Hibbs’ post from earlier today, you should go and read it right now. I’ll wait. It’s relevant to your interests, if your interests are “buying comics” and “things that’ll be happening to this site.” Back (or didn’t click on the link to begin with)? Okay, now I’ll do my bit. Savage Criticians*! Jeff and I are doing another round of question-answerin’ for next week’s Wait, What?, which we’ll be recording tomorrow. This gives you, oh, 20 hours or so before we start recording to leave questions/comments/declarations of undying love in the comments of this post that we’ll either get around to tomorrow or, as we all saw last time we did this, the following week….  Read More…

And We Love You, So Come On, Come On, Come On (Ask Us Questions, I Mean)

Graeme McMillan

Dear Wait, What? listeners, The problem with real life is that, when a friend such as esteemed co-host and editor and all-round-Mr.-Good-Guy Jeff Lester asks you to put up a post on Savage Critics so that everyone can leave comments that are actually questions for you to answer on the next episode of your podcast, and when you say “Sure, I can do that!”, several million other things will suddenly need to be done, and then it’s the end of the next day and you still haven’t posted said post and find yourself overwhelmed – overwhelmed, I say – by guilt. Nevertheless: Jeff and I are going to be recording the next episode on Thursday, so you have until lunchtime…  Read More…

We Want Your Wait, What? Questions, Please

Graeme McMillan

It’s been two long weeks – Well, maybe not that long, I mean the nights are drawing in and everything – but Jeff and I are going to record a new Wait, What? tomorrow and, for once, I’m remembering to not only ask for questions on Twitter, but here, as well. Non-Twitter users! What would you like Jeff and I to talk about? Leave your questions in the comment section and we’ll hopefully almost-definitely get around to them during tomorrow’s recording. New eps should begin appearing again on… Tuesday, I think? Next week, anyway. But ask questions!

Graeme Takes On The New 52. All At Once.

Graeme McMillan

You know, before DC Comics so politely sent me the entire run of the New 52 launch issues, I don’t think that I’d ever read an entire month’s worth of a superhero universe before. I have to say, it’s kind of exhausting. But that doesn’t mean that I’m not going to try and run down very quick capsule reviews of all 52 right here, right now, as Fatboy Slim once said many many years ago oh God I am so old.

Marvel’s Best And Worst: Graeme Looks At Comics From 7/13, 7/20

Graeme McMillan

It’s been awhile, but that’s because of too much work/vacation/too much work, respectively. But! Finally! Comics! Well, some of them, anyway.

Things That Actually Happened This Week: Graeme Really Manages To Review Some 6/22 Books

Graeme McMillan

Why, if it’s Monday, then it’s capsule reviews. And, for once, proper capsule reviews about books that came out on Wednesday! How did that happen? (Also, scroll down for John’s reviews, and then down some more for the shipping list. Yes, it’s a surprisingly busy Monday here, for once.)

Flash(point Tie-Ins)! Aaaaaaah ahhhhhhhhhh! Graeme Saved Everyone of You From Having To Read Them!

Graeme McMillan

I am a bad comic fan, I think, because I didn’t manage to get to the store this week. On the plus side, it’s because I was doing a bunch of other things, so maybe I’m just a busy comic fan. Luckily, though, DC thought to send me preview copies of this week’s and next week’s Flashpoint minis, so it’s apparently round two of the great Flashpoint mini-series reviewathon:

Six Slices Of Terror: Graeme Looks At Some Fear Itself Tie-Ins

Graeme McMillan

So, last week I did lots of Flashpoint tie-ins, so I thought I’d play fair and read lots of Fear Itself tie-ins this week. Well, it was that, or give you my terrible joke in place of a real review of ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #159 (“Peter Parker may be taking a long time to die in this “Death of Spider-Man” arc, but Brian Michael Bendis has successfully killed off one thing pretty quickly: Any interest I had left in this series.” Yeah, I know. But it’s Crap, let’s be honest). So: Let’s get fearfilled, shall we?

Graeme Will Review 9 Comics In A Flash: Flashpoint Month 2, Weeks 1 & 2

Graeme McMillan

As promised yesterday, here’re the Flashpoint-centric reviews I was meaning to write, before I launched into a Fear Itself diatribe…

Fluff Itself: Graeme Gets Into Marvel’s Summer Event Book

Graeme McMillan

I really meant to write capsule reviews, honestly; I got mailed the first two weeks of Flashpoint tie-ins, and thought “That would make a good post,” and then I started writing about Fear Itself and got into a bit of a rant. So Flashpoint will come tomorrow, and instead, here’s me getting carried away about Marvel’s big summer event book.

This Time, John Stewart Is A Bad-Ass… IN VIOLET: Graeme on War of The Green Lanterns

Graeme McMillan

I’m keeping this intro short so you’ll all scroll past and read Brian’s post about today’s massive DC news, but: COMICS.

(Almost) All DC, All The Time: Graeme On Some 5/18 Books

Graeme McMillan

Wow, Jeff’s really laid down the gauntlet with a second week of capsule reviews. Let’s see what I can come up with, even with the short amount of time I have…

Graeme Tries To Remember How This Capsule Thing Works For Some 5/11 Books

Graeme McMillan

Call me a sentimental old fool if you must, but it feels to me like the best way to do a post on the 10th birthday of the Savage Critics is to go old school, and try and remember how those capsule reviews of yore worked… (Click through for nostalgia! But scroll down to read Hibbs’ post, if you haven’t already!)

Look, Up In The Sky: Graeme On The First Post-JMS Superman

Graeme McMillan

From the very first page, you can tell that someone new is handling SUPERMAN #707. After more than half a year of a passive, dickish Man of Steel walking across America and coming across either standoffish and dick-like or curiously naive, the first page of the issue has Superman doing three “super” things – Stopping a bank robbery (with bullets bouncing off his chest!), saving a girl’s life (by stopping a train! With his bare hands!) and grabbing a falling helicopter. It’s as if new writer Chris Roberson thought, “People might need a reminder why Superman is awesome.”

Wait, What? Extra!: The Accidental Text Edition

Graeme McMillan

Okay, so here’s what happened. Jeff and I were emailing each other about recording a new Wait, What? tomorrow (Still to come this week on this very site: Ep. 22.2), and what started as our talking about what we should talk about ended up becoming… well, I guess it’s the first all-text episode of Wait, What?. So, sing the theme tune for yourself and we’ll dive right in mid-conversation…

Thor Vs. Thor! Graeme Compares DeFalco/Frenz To Fraction/Ferry

Graeme McMillan

Let’s start 2011 off with a controversial statement: Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz’s THE MIGHTY THOR is great. No, wait, that’s not controversial enough. How about this? Comparing it to the current Matt Fraction/Pascal Ferry run only points out the latter’s flaws all the more clearly.

Graeme on X-Men: Ce n’est pas un événement comique

Graeme McMillan

As above, so below: I’ve told you about my guilty pleasure of the year already, and now it’s time for its opposite number: The book I kept buying, just out of dread curiosity and something indefinable: X-MEN. Or, to use its subtitle, X-Men: Curse Of The Mutants. Or, to use the title it should’ve had, X-Men: No, Seriously, What The Hell Is This.

Graeme’s 2010 Guilty Pleasure: Justice League of America

Graeme McMillan

Apropos of nothing, I re-read James Robinson’s run to date on JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA over the weekend – in part because I hadn’t read the latest issue by that point, and wanted to remind myself of what was happening before I did – and, as I did so, I realized two things. Firstly, it’s actually a book that I’ve come to really love, despite itself. And secondly, I can completely understand why that “despite itself” might be such a problem for everyone else.
