Wait, What? Ep. 110: Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

Jeff Lester

One of the two delightful pieces of art made for us by the impressively talented Garrett Berner (a.k.a. The Mighty Gar) It’s our last podcast of the year!  Yes, after this two hour and ten minute Whatstravaganza, you get a nice two week vacation from our wee voices nattering on and on, answering your questions, picking apart your comics.  Finally!  Some peace and quiet for your holidays!  Doesn’t that sound pleasant? Anyway…after the jump!  More art!  Lots of links! A hastily assembled and incomplete “Best of” list! And also: Show Notes!

Wait, What? Ep. 99: Ex See, Eye Ex

Jeff Lester

From Gabrielle Bell’s The Voyeurs This is a pretty decent episode, I think, and we’ve got at least one surprise announcement in it (a less-surprising announcement: this is a skip week for us, so there’ll be no episode next week), as well as some talk about books not out yet, books that may have slid past your radar, and we get our Englehart on. God yes, do we get our Englehart on. After the jump: Show notes! Show link! Show…me the money?

Wait, What? Ep. 97: How soon is NOW

Jeff Lester

Just listen.  Trust me. Episode 97! We are getting very, very close to the triple digits!  And, as you can see with the show notes after the jump, we are still capable of bringing the high weirdness. (After the jump: Hi, Weirdness!)

God Save The Queen: Hibbs catches back up

Brian Hibbs

I owe you reviews, and I’m stuck working on a Sunday (the first of 13 days in a row, at that!), so let’s go!

And, lo, there shall come a sell-out! Hibbsing 4/25

Brian Hibbs

I have reviews, yes, under the jump.

Hibbs & The Single 11/30 (part 2)

Brian Hibbs

OK, so not “Wednesday or Thursday”, but here’s the balance of the week…

Brian tries to be cheerful (or… blame Joe Keatinge)

It is weird, after reading ARSENAL a couple of weeks ago, I feel like a straw broke somewhere for me — I don’t want to READ bad comics any more, let alone say snarky things about them… Aw, let me put a jump in here, this might be long?

ARCHIE #600: It has been a really long time since I’ve last read an issue of ARCHIE. Well, a proper one, at least — I glanced through one of those “new look” issues, but threw it across the room in disgust. So I was a little surprised as to just how much I enjoyed this first part of “Archie Marries Veronica” Some people, I guess, might object to this being an “Elseworlds” (Archie walks one night along “Memory Lane”, but decides to walk UP the path), but it seems to me that the Archie line depends on being essentially changeless (If slightly out of tune with what teems are really like), but, at the same time, moving away from that…  Read More…

Johanna Reads Archies: Jughead Enters Our World

Brian Hibbs

The new story in Jughead & Friends Digest #23 is odd in an historical way. Dilton’s figured out a way to store stuff in another dimension with his “infinite closet” invention. For most stories, this would be a fruitful premise in itself… but here, it’s just a way to set up the real conflict, when Jughead falls through it and winds up in “our” world. Jughead happens to land in the comic book company that creates his stories. (It’s a lovely fantasy, the idea of writers and artists all in one office, working to create comics, although it’s never been true in the modern age.) The writer winds up showing Jughead how a comic story is created. Given this publisher,…  Read More…
