“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. Anyway, this…

Wait, What? Ep. 145: Doublespeak.

Jeff Lester

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!

Wait, What? Ep. 137: Zombook Club!

Jeff Lester

This and Battling Boy are the subjects of today’s book club. Go pick up copies and argue along! Greetings from the Cosmic Habitrail! (That is how Flash now gets from one dimension to the next, right?) Due to an overabundance of running around and an underabundance of organizational skills, I have very, very brief show notes for Episode 137, our Book Club edition. but! I do also have a two hour long podcast for you, so… <nudge, nudge>. Eh? Eh? After the jump…both of those things!

Wait, What? Ep. 136: Finally, Finally, Finally.

Jeff Lester

Anyone remember in what book Tolkien references the Battle of the Open-Faced Sandwich?  Infographic/opening salvo by the invincible Kate McMillan. Oh, man. I hope that infographic does not hog up too much of our precious SavCrit real estate–please don’t miss Abhay writing about Lazarus or that piece about how DC ran its print runs for Villains Month, or other fine entries! Also, do join us after the jump for shownotes for our latest “Reunited-and-it-feels-so-good-except-Graeme-and-I-exchange-words-about-Game-of-Thrones-so-how-good-can-we-feel-really?” podcast!

Wait, What? Ep. 135: Err Travel

Jeff Lester

From the entertainingly wrong-headed Secret Society of Super-Villains trade paperback. I am so bummed I made that reference to the opening of “Don’t Believe The Hype” a few weeks back, because now that I’ve got a trip coming up I could’ve made a “I’ve got so much travel on my mind” pun…but now, no, I can’t. Anyway, after the jump, show notes for this late-to-bed, early-to-rise episode of Wait, What?

Wait, What? Ep. 133: Born Before ’61

Jeff Lester

As I reacall, Patti Smith shit-talked the Bizarro Movement in Just Kids, didn’t she? yes yes yes this is a real thing that was published and yes yes yes it is Steve Gerber how did you know? After the jump, another episode of our humble little show, complete with show notes that are even more humble and, um, even more little?

Wait, What? The Special 2013 SDCC Episode

Jeff Lester

From this month’s Megazine and kinda appropriate in many ways…. Yeah, this is as close as you’re going to get as podcasting in real time, Whatnauts — Graeme and I talked for half an hour just a few hours ago, and I decided I’d get this edited and uploaded for you to enjoy.  Super-brief show notes for a super-brief SDCC special after the jump!

Wait, What? Ep. 126: More of Everything

Jeff Lester

Because it is Kirby and because it is…my heart. Okay, tech problems resolved! (You know, as long as you’re talking about our recording problems, and not about how everyone has basically been hacked by the government without their consent for years…) So, behind the jump, show notes for our two-hour plus installment of the Show That Cannot Say Die (Without Skype Cutting Out On It)! Oh, but before you do, make sure you check out posts by Hibbs and Smitty below — today is our semi-annual Salute to Content!

Wait, What? Ep. 124: Stare Trek

Jeff Lester

The return of Vegan Viking! Courtesy of the brilliant Gar Berner Yes, Vegan Viking (thanks to the supremely talented and kind Gar Berner) is back, and so are Graeme and I, with a close-to-two-hour episode filled with funny book kvetching and show notes right after the jump. Join us, won’t you?

Wait, What? Ep. 123: Assault Monitors

Jeff Lester

From the amazing Kirby-written, Kirby-drawn finale to the first Super Powers miniseries. See, everyone? I don’t blow every deadline, just some of the deadlines. Anyway, we’re back (although SPOILER: we’re off next week again) with not quite two hours of Kirby talk, Ewing talk, and…three year old niece talk?  Um, I’m afraid the answer to all of those is: YES.  Join us after the jump for show notes, why don’t you?

Hibbs? Why is HE stinkin’ up the joint?!?!

Brian Hibbs

Hi, it is me, the y’know, original founder of this blog.  You might have noticed I’ve been just a little slack in posting since around Christmas time. The Season soaked up my time, then I started my new consulting business, but mostly, I needed a break from writing reviews.  It happens! I was going to start posting a few weeks ago, but that was the week where Abhay descended out of the blue for a solid week of posts, and I didn’t want to step on his toes. This week, we welcome our newest SavCrit — the artist formerly known as J_Smitty (Yes, eventually every regular commenter will be given a seat in the big chair*), now unveiled as Jordan…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 122: Capespaces

Jeff Lester

From Bandette #4 by Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover. It’s pretty damn delightful. Hey, everyone!  Next week is a skip week!  Do you hear me? SKIP WEEK. Show notes?  Oh yes, there are certainly show notes. RIGHT AFTER THE JUMP.

Wait, What? Ep. 121: Gilded View

Jeff Lester

Erroneously called ‘Barbarian Romance’ by Jeff throughout the hours that follow. Image, I believe, by Corey Lewis for Brandon Graham; Apologies if that link is a jerk. Oh my god, it almost doesn’t matter what hour of the day or night it is, my next door neighbors WILL NOT FUCKING SHUT UP. After the jump: show notes just the way Thomas Hobbes would like ‘em: nasty, brutish and short.  (Actually, just short.)

Wait, What? Ep. 120: Beat Up

Jeff Lester

Stunner stuff from D’Israeli in Stickleback, currently appearing in 2000 A.D. Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends! (If I was Stan Lee, I’d offer a No-Prize to those of you who really get that reference…but thank goodness there is only one Stan and I’m not him.) Join me after the jump for show notes for Wait, What? Ep. 120, won’t you?  (Yes, there is one this week.  I assure you, I’m not pulling an April Fool’s Joke on you a week late…OR AM I????

Wait, What? Ep. 117: Sometimes Dead is Better

Jeff Lester

One of Annie Wu’s great covers from the interior of Hawkeye #8. Yep, it looks like this posting on Monday thing might be our new podcasting schedule for the conceivable future.  I hope it is not a problem for everyone (including Hibbs, who just posted the shipping list a few hours ago, do go check it out and comment. After the jump: our charming and trying-hard-to-be-respectable old chum–the show notes.

Wait, What? Ep. 113: Technically Difficult

Jeff Lester

A page from Shotaro Ishinomori’s Kikaider, which we didn’t even discuss this week but which I kinda adore, nonetheless… ATTENTION, ATTENTION, NEXT WEEK WILL BE A SKIP WEEK FOR THE PODCAST.  NEXT WAIT IS A WEEK, WHAT? SKIPCAST! You may not care.  In fact, you may be relieved but either way, Graeme and I will not be talking one another’s ear off this week so there won’t be anything for you to listen to from us next week.  Maybe you can get out of the house for a bit?  Go for a walk?  Realize that although it’s probably too late to do that “52 books  in 52 weeks” you promised, you can maybe still get in 48 in 48 weeks?…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 109: Delightful

Jeff Lester

Two panels from Avengers #1. Captain America sounds kinda bitchy here, doesn’t he? Happy holidays!  Ho ho ho!  Uhh…. Gather Ye Rosebuds While You May! (Man, I gotta outsource the holiday sections of these entries to Graeme or something.  I am really bad at this!) Anyway, behind the jump…Show Notes!

Wait, What? Ep. 107: Hardly Working

Jeff Lester

Australian, as she is spoke–from All-New X-Men #1, by Brian Bendis and Stuart Immonen So, I am loathe to admit it…but I totally did that thing where I was running under the gun and so the show notes have a certain je ne sais LEAVE FIFTY THOUSAND IN THE TRASH CAN AT EAST ENTRANCE OF CENTRAL PARK OR SHE IS DEAD quality to them. Nonetheless, after the jump: show notes!

Wait, What? Ep. 106: You Are Number Six.

Jeff Lester

At Graeme’s Behest: the cover to Colder #1 Yeah, that’s a pleasant way to get your Tuesday rolling, eh? Anyhoo, very truncated version of things this time around, I’m afraid but after the jump…show notes!

Wait, What? Ep. 100: Year Zero

Jeff Lester

(One of my favorite hundredth issue covers, by Joe Staton and Dick Giordano for DC Comics) I don’t know why, but for a moment there… I was very afraid this episode wouldn’t end up existing?  I think because, you know, you say something is a thing, as opposed to just being business as usual, and the next thing you know there’s a certain nimbus of expectation around it, even if only to yourself?  Sometimes it  seems like that kind of nimbus makes the best kind of target for capricious fate… Anyway, enough of that “and then he tore his eyes out in the fifth act!” musing, join us behind the jump for show notes and celebratory waffles, yes?

Wait, What? Ep. 95: Flop Flips

Jeff Lester

Above: Izzy’s Guac & Lox with extra red onion and sliced tomato, on an onion bagel, from Los Bagels in Arcata, CA. Oh, man.  I don’t know if you’ve ever had the above but if you do–I highly recommend it.  It’s a little pricey, but the guacamole is great and the lox are fresh.  Just a fine old dining experience. But you’re not here for the food talk, are you? (Wait…are you?)  You are here, in theory, for the latest installment of Wait, What? Ep. 95, so join me behind the jump for….show notes!
