I kinda like that I’ve decided to call this installment, “Why Are They Smiling?” and I have a this illustration of someone asking “Why are they smiling?” and also maybe someone says it in the very podcast, too. It’s a bit like “Merv Griffin!”, that most excellent Milk & Cheese cartoon, and it’s a bit like that “turtles all the way down” meme, and a bit like that faux-Jack T. Chick Cthulhu strip, and it’s a bit like I have headache and can’t really think of anything especially subtle. So.
Due to said headache, I will skip the program notes which I’ve been trying to add (not really sure if they’re helping anyone or not, anyway) and, hmmm, maybe I just need a banana or something to eat. Maybe it’s a blood sugar thing. Yes. Existential blood sugar.
But don’t let my hypoglycemia throw you: this is actually a mighty fine installment of Wait, What? we’ve got lined up for you. In it, Graeme McMillan and I reflect on Fear Itself #5, and Marvel’s plans for its post-Fear Itself future; Flashpoint #4, Flashpoint: The Secret Seven, and Flashpoint: The Outsider; X-Men: Schism, Wolverine #13, PunisherMax #16 as well as the work of Jason Aaron; and the truly enjoyable Daredevil #2. It should be on iTunes, and it is most definitely here for you to listen to:
Oh, and I mentioned it there, so I mentioned it here–should you wish to drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and send us comics or waffle-related gossip, we would certainly love to read it. Mmmm, waffles…those have got to be better for your blood sugar than a banana, right?
Anyway, Ep. 53.2 should be here very, very shortly so there’s always that. My hope is that I’ll have eaten by then. Oh, and as always, thanks for listening!
