Tilting #234 is up!

Brian Hibbs

Death. To. The. Penny!

And more more more on the second store (store store).

Find it at Comic Book Resources, though you MAY post here if you prefer not to there (but the community there IS much improved lately)

“Make A NECKTIE With His TONGUE!” COMICS! Sometimes You Can’t Put Lipstick On A Bat!

John Kane

Well what with all the IT hilarity I don’t know whether this will be here tomorrow but let’s live for today and look at some Batman comics. That’s what they mean, right, when they say live each day like there’s no tomorrow, right? They mean read some Batman comics. I mean if people seriously lived life for the moment then there’d be no societal infrastructure and stuff would just never get done; you know what folk are like they would be be looting, murdering and rutting like dogs in the street. It’d be like a prison riot but the whole world would be the prison. Now I think about it, Live each day like there’s no tomorrow is some pretty shitty advice. Um, it’s very hot here today. Look…it’s BATMAN! Well, Damian Son of Batman anyway.

Ow, sorry, timewarp!

Brian Hibbs

Backstage problems here at SavCrit, and everything that was posted in the last 97 days just got deleted. The GOOD news is it is in service of getting rid of the damn spam (though, that will still be a bit more time, but it IS being actively worked on)

It is possible (?) that John K and Jeff and Abhay all wrote things in Word first, and can restore their posts, but I’m not going to bet on it.  I know I sure as heck didn’t! Still, happy thoughts, right?

I am SO close to being done with the main parts of back issue project at the new store that is soaking virtually all of my time (I just started pricing “SUperman” this morning, just eleven more long boxes to go! Though only three of those are bagged & boarded this second…), and once I’ve squared away the last few bits of things that exist there, my next major goal is resuming regular reviews from me here at the Critic.  Third quarter sometime, but don’t be shocked if it’s closer on the Sept side than the Jul side.

Anyway, regular content returning from me Pretty Soon(tm), and I really want to thank Abhay and John (Especially!) for holding down the fort for me here. And I really miss Jeff & Graeme, too, but the need more than someone who was treating this as a secondary interest.

GUILTY, but, like I said, things are changing.  This timewarp is just a sad and stupid manifestation.

“I Ran ‘em!” COMICS! Sometimes Even The Flash looks Like An Aimless Dawdler In Comparison!

John Kane

The comics I’m on about this week were not only originally published before you were born they were originally published before I was born; well, just. Tasty! They feature a man who can run really fast but instead of fighting crime and talking killer gorillas he instead wins races in bleak Northern towns purely for his own satisfaction. Somewhere in that comparison I think there lurks the crux of the difference between the American and English characters. Best not to dwell on it, eh?

“And If There’s No News…I’ll Go Out And Bite A Dog!” MOVIES! Sometimes You Can All Komodo My Place And We’ll Watch Some Stuff!

John Kane

Okay, there’s nothing happening in my head comics wise at the moment. But I wanted to chuck some content up so here’s some stuff about movies. The earliest one here was made in 1947 and the latest one was broadcast a week ago so something for everyone? Highly unlikely.

Oh hey, I wrote about some comics. Wonders never cease do they?

“The Weaving of Ornate Tapestries Glorifying Our Ancestors and Their Bygone Way of Life.” COMICS! Sometimes I Treat You Like My Local Library And Continue To Patronise You!

John Kane

This week I visited my library and took out and read a recent-ish TPB of some quite old Conan comics, 1982 or thereabouts. Then I tried to put my thoughts about ‘em into what them there clever folks call words. I think it worked out about as well as that usually does for me. Probably a lot less well for you. One thing I did discover was that the Hyborian equivalent of Occam’s Razor was Conan’s Rock:

“What Happened To Shame?” TELEVISION! Sometimes I Just Veg Out In front Of The Tube!

John Kane

So I was going to write about some comics but I just wasn’t feeling it. Being a big Elvis fan I am all too aware that you should never force it, so I wrote about some television instead. I hear people like television.

This week is a lesson. This week is telling us that we should not judge a week by the amount of books, but the quality of the books. Case in point, this week marks the long awaited return of David Lapham’s STRAY BULLETS with, not one but, two periodicals and a giant book, that itself could be used as a weapon in a story that would appear in it’s very pages! Don’t be fooled though! Plenty other books are coming out this week, just click the link and see for yourself!

Wait, What? Ep. 146: Two:One

Man. the stuff you could buy out of the back of comics.

Hey, everyone!  We’re back with another  podcast.  You should download it and listen to it really loud while you watch the last episode of True Detective!  (Why? I don’t know.  It would make the experience more cinematic, maybe?  I mean, I suppose I could’ve taken the time to craft some outrageously satisfying joke about, uh, hmm, see, now you know the problem I’m having with that one and really the joke — even if I could craft one, which it is now clear I couldn’t  — would’ve only really truly been funny for a brief period of time, whereas failure is enduring and therefore timeless and therefore ever-timely and besides don’t we just die in the end, anyway?)

<<jazz hands>>

Anyway, after the jump: “Show notes? I’ll show you show notes, mister!”

“Nah, Son. This Is On ALL of Us.” COMICS! Sometimes If This Superhero Thing Doesn’t Work Out They Could Always Moonlight As A White Goods Delivery Firm!

John Kane

Due to popular demand what follows is about a new(ish) series and it’s also mercifully brief! Who says we here at The Savage Critics don’t listen? Well, they’re right. But we thought you’d find the illusion comforting.

I know, the site is a little borked, I know!

Brian Hibbs

Comments be broken, there’s spam, and so on… I’m trying to get it addressed, but I’m just drowning from overwork with the second store.  Some things should be happening VERY SOON that should make things a little better, and there are a few other changes coming that (I don’t think?) are really my announcements to make, so I won’t….

But, really, I’m just asking for patience until my schedule clears up a little — I’m a little past halfway done with the BASEMENT O’ DOOM! then, after that I actually plan to return to reviewing things again.  But that might not be until summertime?

Trying hard to suck less!

“Muh Version of Whut Happened May Not Be Spicy Enough Fer Yore Little Boy’s Tastes…” COMICS! Sometimes Even A Surly Jackass Weeps For The World!

John Kane

Man, I just about read the ink right offa these pages when I was just a young ‘un. And I just read ‘em agin right now. If you’re of a mind to, sit back and whittle awhile and I’ll flap my yapper concernin’ ‘em.

This week is a small week, but don’t be fooled! A small week can still have more big books than you can count. Including not one, but two, Mark Millar books in the form of STARLIGHT #1 and his and Quietly’s return to JUPITER’S LEGACY. Plus, new Warren Ellis in the form of MOON KNIGHT #1, Brubaker and Epting with VELVET #4 and the latest WALKING DEAD collection. That is a lot of things, but trust me, their is more beneath the cut!

ABHAY: These Aren’t That Good But Here’s Another Attempt at Capsule Reviews

Abhay Khosla

Eh, don’t feel like I did a great job on these, but here’s an attempt at some capsule reviews for THE WHITE SUITS #1, DEADLY CLASS #1-2, more just chit-chat than a review of SATELLITE SAM #6 which I didn’t care enough about to mention any of the actual details of (I think I really ate it on that one), FANTASTIC FOUR #1, and FOREVER EVIL: ARKHAM WAR #1 to 5.  There’s better stuff on the internet, right now, these are just bleh, but if you’re bored…

“I Wonder If Tom And Larry Would Be So Eager To Marry Me If My…Feet…Were…Gone!” COMICS! Sometimes They Got Moxie, You Betcha!

John Kane

As an ancient ladies’ fragrance ad had it, “Men Can’t Help Acting On Impulse”; which is why we have prisons. And, slightly more pertinently, why I bought this book of ye olde newspaper continuities. Repeat offenders will recall that recently I looked at a Hermes Press collection of Frank Robbins’ Johnny Hazard newspaper strips. Hopefully such folk will fail to recall that I was somewhat out of my depth and basically just said “Frank Robbins draws real nice!” in a number of different ways without even a hint of insight. In the uncharacteristically optimistic belief that I could hardly do any worse I thought I’d look at yet more old newspaper strips. This time out they are both about and by a woman. This means there’s every chance I’ll not only fail to say anything of use but I’ll also inadvertently offend fifty percent of the world’s population. Sigh, and this is how I relax; it’s no wonder I have more hair on my toes than on my head.

This a big week following a month of smaller weeks, so if you had been holding back the previous weeks, now is the time to go all in on comic books! High profile releases this week are DEADLY CLASS #2, the return of THE WAKE and HAWKEYE #15, but if those aren’t the books for you than I am sure we can find you something beneath the cut!

It’s funny because it’s true.

Hey there, everyone!  You miss us?  Well, good news, we’re back–all three of us (Graeme, me, and my terrifying vocal echo that haunts much of this podcast).  After the jump:  show notes and promises to do better!

Tilting #230 is live: BookScan 2013

Yay, the longest thing I write every year.

Man, I didn’t AT ALL have the time to write this one, either.

Go read it, then let me know what you think……

“That Was MY Bikini. That Drug Was Meant For ME!” COMICS! Sometimes You Can Go West But Life Is Not So Peaceful There!

John Kane

Yes! She’s back the lassie with the classy chassis; the gal whose gams are deadlier than a gat! Put your hands together for miss Honeeeey Weeeeest!…Honey West. You know…Honey West. Looking at me like I’m just making farting noises with my mouth isn’t helping. Okay, let me hit the streets, break some heads and see if I can get the real skinny on this crazy dame…

Another week of comics appears! Though due to inclement weather conditions shipments for the whole of the west coast will be delayed twenty four hours but still shelved on Wednesday, so if you are an early morning comic buyer, maybe wait till the afternoon.

Now the fun stuff! With the debut of the first collection of Ales Kot and friend’s ZERO, along side some of our other favorites, like ALEX + ADA, and new comer UNDERTOW, this is a week you should not shy away from. Find the rest of the comics you can look forward to this week after the cut!
