Wait, What? Ep. 134: Putting the “Me! Me!” back into “Meme”

Jeff Lester

From the easy-to-love but difficult-to-defend (at least when you’re talking to Graeme McMillan) Yakitate!! Japan by Takashi Hashiguchi Hello, how are you? Is that a new shirt? Oh, really? Huh. Well, you look good in it anyway. Me? Oh, I’m mostly okay.  Ate something a few days that didn’t agree with me so my stomach is upset which kinda saps me of my ability to get things done?  I mostly want to just lie around and watch movies on Netflix where things explode and take my mind off my stomach… What’s that?  Does that mean I’m going to present you with a more truncated set of show notes to go with this episode?  Uh… let’s step behind the jump and…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 131: Linkpocalypse

Jeff Lester

Motofumi Kobayashi’s Cat Shit One: Another great reason to love comics. Yes, okay! As always, I have nothing clever to say in this space, but unlike always, I’m not going to waste your time saying it. I’ve got show notes with images! Links! Prizes! (There are no prizes!) Torrid confessions! (There probably will not be any torrid confessions.) After the jump: Show Note Machine…Go!

Wait, What? Ep. 104: Zero Point Now

Jeff Lester

John Byrne really, uh, bringing it in Alpha Flight #6 Yeah, that’s….mmm, boy!  Good ol’ John Byrne, amirite? Anyhoo… the adventure that are the shownotes for our podcast: right behind the jump!

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!)

Wait, What? Ep. 86: Defending Your Life

Jeff Lester

(Visual from Art Spigelman’s piece on Maurice Sendak unrelated to this episode, but I adore it too much to ignore it!) Hail and well met, fellow Whatnauts! Sadly, my M.O. of dashing something off in a state approaching sheer terror continues as I managed to put this together in time to hit all of our deadlines but with unexpected side-effect of stripping my soul down to its most bald-tiredian self. Forgive me, won’t you? But, hey, at least as a result you get to dig into the nougaty goodness that is Wait, What? Ep. 86. Packed with seven essential vitamins and minerals, the latest episode of Graeme and I answering your questions is part of this complete breakfast. [Quick shot…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 85: Dashboard

Jeff Lester

Okay, then. Slight delay but none of us are quite the worse for wear, right? Unfortunately, I’m still kind of behind the gun, so lemme just block out the ep, aye? For the first fifteen minutes, charming and talented Graeme McMillan and I shun the comic book talk and instead discuss Graceland, Video Games, and TV theme songs.  Those of you who show up just for the sequential gossip should probably skip over that. But then we get on to the good stuff (at least as “good stuff” is defined and regulated by state law), talk Action #9, Earth Two #1, and Avengers Vs. X-Men #3.   And finally, we start answering more of your questions from Twitter, with topics…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 59.2: Nine 9 Nein

Jeff Lester

It was a tough call, deciding how to chop up Ep. 59 — it was one of those eps. where the cleanest transition between topics wasn’t very clean at all. So, really, if you’ve just listened to Ep. 59.1, you’ll handle the transition to 59.2 just fine–I literally just cut an inhalation between the end of that one and the start of this one. So maybe when I launch into my thoughts on Craig Thompson’s Habibi, you’ll get a better sense of where I’m coming from if you’ve recently finished that.  (Or maybe not.  I never know.  Embarrassingly enough, I more or less have this conversation twice–once as a speaker, and once as a listener/editor — and I still can’t…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 57.2: Playing the Dozens

Jeff Lester

Behind the non-Clowesian eightball again, so this will have to be short and sweet. First? Graeme and I love you all. Awwww. (See? Sweet.) Second, the above illustration is from Uncanny X-Force #15, by the astonishingly great Jerome Opena. (I think the whole book is pretty great, because Remender is doing his best to crank things up to 11, but ooo mama that art….) Third, this installment is approximately eighty minutes long and we talk about a dozen-plus books, including Batwoman #1, Mr. Terrific #1, Legion Lost #1, Superboy #1, Uncanny X-Force #15, PunisherMAX #17, Criminal: Last of the Innocent #4, Journey Into Mystery #627, Drifting Classroom, Bakuman, and, as you’d probably expect, Fear Itself #6. Fourth, I think our review…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 55.2: Press 1 for Yes, 2 for No

Jeff Lester

And we’re back with big finale of the podcast we recorded twice and edited twice (and, in a fine bit of “oh, ha-ha-ha, where’s my magical suicide gun?”, I had to write this entry twice because the first one got wiped out, ha-ha-ha, no really, where is it?). Included in this installment’s topics are The Trial of the Flash Showcase, Flashpoint #5, Thor: The Motion Picture, Flashpoint #5, the first volume of Bakuman, Fighting American and the Newsboy Legion, Flashpoint #5, Kid Eternity, the marketing of Schism, and the comic event that is not Fear Itself #5. This embarrassment of riches (or, alternately, embarrassment, depending on how you feel about these things) is available to you on iTunes and also…  Read More…

Verse Chorus Verse: Jeff’s Capsule Reviews from 6/8

Jeff Lester

Does it bode ill for my reviews when I can’t think of a clever thing to say while convincing you to follow me behind the jump for capsule reviews?  It probably is, isn’t it?  Ah, well.  I just finished watching the screen adaptation of The Black Dahlia.  I mean, I’d heard that movie would be bad, but there were wrong casting decisions, terrible direction, and some bad mistakes in adapting Ellroy’s skeezy epic to the screen. As a quasi-fan of Brian DePalma, it’s a painful, painful movie to watch.  And I blame it for my inability to bring you a witty intro: the movie is a like a form of slow-acting toxin to the higher brain functions. Anyway, after the…  Read More…
