Wait, What? Ep. 29.3: Not A Joiner.

Jeff Lester


The above image really doesn’t have as much to do with our final installment of Ep. 29 as I would like, but sweet baby Jesus, do I love it so.  It’s going to take a lot of work not for me to dig up a Marcos Martin checklist and start collecting.

That said–yes! The conclusion of Episode 29!  Graeme and I answering your questions and talking until your iPod is blue in its face!  We talk Spider-Man as member of the Future Foundation and possibly X-Men! We talk comic book continuity!  We talk Superman and his role in the DCU! We talk the box office receipts of Kick-Ass and Scott Pilgrim! And more!  With slightly better grammar, even!

It’s on…iTunes?  And it is also here, for you to listen to…or not.  Perhaps you have a school project due, one that requires you to splice in audio of geeky men talking comic books over images of butter being spread on bread and people getting napalmed and Tura Satana kicking someone in the face.  We can help!  (Though you will probably only get a B.)

Wait, What? Ep. 29.3: Not A Joiner.

Thank you for listening and we hope you have enjoyed almost a week’s worth of podcasts?  We will try to be a little more sparing in the future, so feel free to portion it out as you wish!

  1. On annoying cliches: One that I’ve really gotten sick of is the opening where a random woman is being cornered in an alley, subway, or magical forest by a bunch of thugs who make not-too-veiled threats about gang rape, then our hero comes in and saves the day. It seems like every “street-level” book does it now and then — it was the preview for the new Green Arrow #1, and now it’s the preview for the new Herc #1. (At least with Herc they put a bit of a spin on it, but still. Really disappointing.)

    Spider-Man and teams: It’s tricky, because in any individual book, it kind of makes sense; it’s only when you read them all that it gets really ridiculous.

    Incidentally, he’s not really joining the X-Men, any more than Blade did in the first arc; it’s just a teamup. The first issue was a bit forced — the X-Men need a crime to fight, so for some reason they have to haul all the way back to NYC, which you’d think has enough heroes running around, but the second issue tied it into X-Men themes a little better. Plus: Bachalo!

    And Dungeons and Dragons is pretty fun so far, yep. I like how Rogers has kind of eschewed the typical high-fantasy “There’s a great evil and the fate of the world is at stake! We must Speak In Capitalized Words!” and cuts to the core of why old-school D&D is fun: adventure, and loot.

  2. Dudes, I for one LOVE the crazy-long, meandering podcasts. They give me something to listen to on my 12 hour work shifts, or when I’m doing the dishes. :)

    I agree – SCOTT PILGRIM’s box office was just heartbreaking. I went to see it opening night, and even though the theater wasn’t packed, we had a good crowd – and the whole audience loved the hell out of it. I mean to the point of where people were still standing outside the theater talking about which parts they liked most for twenty minutes afterwards. Pilgrim deserved a $100 million opening weekend, and it was (for my money) the best film released in 2010.

    And just to clarify – I was including international box office when I was calculating KICK ASS’s revenue – though I’m pretty sure you’re right, and studios only care about domestic performance. And I think Graeme hit it on the head when he said KICK ASS is already a cult favorite…. :)

    Anyway, fantastic show as always, and thanks for answering my question. I’m nothing if not persistent with my nerdiness.

  3. Because sometimes the obvious must be stated: That Marcos Martin art is phenomenal. Phe-nome-nal!

  4. I think Graeme’s been writing for Onomatopoeia for four or five years. I’ve been in L.A. for three years as of next month, and I know Graeme was writing for the publication for at least year, maybe more, by the time I left.

  5. Re: cliches, I think it’s still early in the life of this cliche but: blackboards in superhero comics with “hints” about future stories written on them.

  6. As a one time HS teacher I can say with some confidence that blackboards don’t even really exist as a classroom feature anymore. The ones that have them are practically a novelty. Also, capable of navigating time, space, and alternate reality but slaves to chalk? What are we, cavemen?
