Lo, There Shall Be An Ending: Wait, What? #6.3

Finally, Jeff and I get down to talking about then-current comics like The Flash: Rebirth, Blackest Night and Daytripper in this, the third and final (for now) episode of Wait, What?, comics’ most irregular and delayed podcast. Think of us as The Ultimates of comics podcasting; I’m clearly Mark Millar, because I have both the accent and the knack for increasingly annoying hyperbole.

  1. I’m just happy with whatever time you guys can carve out on the site. Your love of the medium comes across (even with the Bendis comments). I’d love to hear more Wait, What? in the future.

    Jeff, following your recommendation, I read Urasawa’s Pluto series and it was phenomenal. The pacing was refreshing by how the story is made clear without having to ‘pad something out for the trade’. I’ll look forward to reading some other Urasawa in the future. Thanks again and keep up the great work.

  2. Never read “Shade, The Changing Man” so I can’t speak about Bachalo, but Sean Murphy’s art in the fantasy/hallucinatory sequences reminded me of Andy Kubert. It had that kind of loose, dashed off feel. (And yes, Murphy’s trees are excellent.)

    Also: Any thoughts on the Kick-Ass movie? Millar/McNiven’s Nemesis? Bendis/Maleev’s Spider-Woman? The new Doctor Who, maybe?

  3. I’m surprised that so few (any?) people have said the immortal words “FLEX MENTALLO” in conjunction with Joe Le Barbie. Now THERE’s a motif for ya.

    Also…and I don’t want to make you feel self-conscious…but I can hear you typing. One of you – Jeff, I think – is typing on what sounds like a laptop keyboard. Like I said, I don’t want you to feel uncomfortable, or anything. Just making an observation. (sorry!)

  4. I’m kind of surprised that more people haven’t made the comparison of the art in JOE THE BARBARIAN to early-to-mid-1990s Bachalo. I found it almost distractingly similar to that style. It’s a nice style, and Bachalo isn’t using anything like that now (maybe, I haven’t really looked at his work in a while, is it even close to readable these days?), so I guess that’s okay. Despite that, I really didn’t see the fuss over JOE based on the first issue, but I’m never that taken with Morrison.

    The Blackest Night collections aren’t coming out that quickly after the series. It’s about 3 months after the main series finished and more than that after the crossovers finished, which is a bit quick for DC, but they seem to be speeding that up a bit for big events recently. Checking some dates quickly, FINAL CRISIS took 4 months from the last issue, INFINITE CRISIS took 5 months, IDENTITY CRISIS took 9 months, CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS took 156 months.

  5. This series of three has been the first of your podcast I’ve listened to, and I found it quite enjoyable – please do more!

    Is there anyway to get hold of the older one’s?
    I’ve been clicking around on the site, but can’t get them to download.

  6. funkygreen: that’s something we’re trying to address–the links went a bit sideways when we changed providers. Due to some outside circumstances (visiting in-laws), we may be delayed in getting it ironed out for a week or so.

    Thanks for checking us out, and I’m glad you enjoyed the podcast!

  7. I like Daytripper too. It almost breaches my personal preciousness barrier on occasion but that’s my only real criticism. It’s a nicely different comic. But is that enough for Jeff? Is it?

    Initially I found the obviousness of the movie pitch origin of Joe The Barbarian really off putting but then I just relaxed and fell into the warm embrace of the art. Yeah, that’s some sweet tree action going on there.

    Shade The Changing Man? Totally great series by Milligan and co. At least until Shade got preoccupied by his haircut but by then it had been such a peachy ride it would be rude to complain. Being reprinted by DC in TPBs as we speak I believe?

    Thanks very much for your podcastery.
