Apologies to those of you already pestered with this image on Twitter: I thought it was worth a re-use, in no small part because I must once again plead mentis mortis (I have no doubt I’m handling this dead language so poorly, a charge of necrophilia could well be leveled), thanks to how late it is that I’m composing this and where I’m at for a variety of reasons that will probably become clear once you hear Wait, What? 81 next week. (Hint: it’s a terrifying topic Graeme and I have tackled before.)
But enough of that for now, there’s a podcast to be had! Wait, What? Ep. 80, in fact, a done-in-one of approximately two hours and twenty-five minutes in length. Yes, you all know I can be pretty wishy-washy (I prefer the verb “to waffle,” for obvious reasons) and Graeme and I both thought there were a lot of great and compelling arguments made for keeping this in one. I do appreciate the minority views, however, and wish I could figure out a way to appease both parties (or offer some consolation for the two part crowd) . Hopefully, I’ll figure something out.
Yes, so–a done-in-one, with the first forty minutes or so being the mighty Graeme McMillan and I talking the reception to the John Carter movie, the lack of interesting Wondercon news, shelling pistachios, costume design, and conspiracy theories about bad movies.
Then, once it becomes obvious, we should maybe start in on the comics and not worry about waiting for a break, we really hit the gas, and start in on recently read comics, including The Wasteland Omnibus, reading The Flash and writing for the trades, Justice League #7 and the Shazam! back-up, Secret Avengers: The Children's Crusade, Avengers X-Sanction #4, Wolverine #303, Dominique LeVeau Voodoo Queen, Wonder Woman #7, Astonishing X-Men and Wolverine and The X-Men, and a heckuva lot more.

(See, I warned you–admittedly in debased Latin–about how braindead I was! Nonetheless, I promise to do better next time. And, as always, thank you for listening!)
