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? Ep. 130: Friendly Neighborhood Peaslingers

Jeff Lester

Mmmm, delicious tail… From Batman, Inc. #13, art by Chris Burnham Hey, we are back! Like, backity-back! Like, two full hours of back! Back like Baby’s Got Back! Back, like Back to the Future! Like The Front is back! Like Orange is The New Back! Like Back That Azz Up is back, but with more of a later Outkast-influenced Atlanta sound! Wikipedia! Posterior! Glutes!  Back! After the jump: show notes…are back! Back like [etc., etc.]

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. 116: G-Mo K-Hole

Jeff Lester

Because it is Hook Jaw, and Because it is My Heart… Yep, we are back!  Sorry for our absence from the podcasting broadcast waves and of course the Savage Critic site itself. After the jump–show notes!  But before we get there, I wanted to congratulate House to Astonish for their 100th Episode!  I’m listening to it now, and want to recommend it for people who like what Graeme and I do but would maybe like it if it was done much better?  Congrats to Al & Paul! Now, then.  Where was I?  Oh, right.

Wait, What? Ep. 112: A New Dope

Jeff Lester

Wasn’t able to find Ditko inking Kirby, but here’s Dan Clowes inking Ditko! Ganked from Robot 6 and elsewhere… Okay, and so but here is our latest episode about which I will provide you with more detail after the jump!

Wait, What? Ep. 108: Frightful

Jeff Lester

I love, love, love that lonely little “beep.” Man, the holiday season, amirite? Emerging from the primordial swamp of Black Friday, Cyber-Monday, Fat Tuesday and Sexting Sunday, it’s the show notes for Wait, What? Ep. 108…right behind the jump!

Wait, What? Ep. 105: Ringing Endorsements

Jeff Lester

Brandon Graham’s Multiple Warheads: Worth the Trip Safe and dry on the left coast, we are willing and able to provide you with two-plus hours of distraction.  At no point in the following podcast do we mention the extensive rat population of New York clawing their way to higher ground even if it means going through dark, electricity free apartments and the helpless population contained therein to do so.  Not once! So…join us after the jump and help us think happy thoughts, won’t you?

“Mr. Dazzleby Has Promised To Be Kind And True.” COMICS! Sometimes It’s Four Divided By Zero Plus One!

John Kane

I’ve heard some people only read Marvel comics! Also, some people only read DC Comics! That’s okay, 99% of all psychiatrists agree – compartmentalisation is really healthy! It’s also okay because I only wrote about some DC Comics! Marvel people will have to wait a bit. I know, I know but I’m sure you’ll find the wherewithal to cope. Next: words…

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. 98: Gorilla With An Eyepatch

Jeff Lester

Gorilla with an eyepatch/ I know, I know/ It’s really serious… from Boom!’s Betrayal of the Planet of the Apes by Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman We are creeping ever-closer to magic number 100, as you are probably aware.  But, hey, why fixate on the future?  There’s every possibility the world could be thrown into cataclysmic upheaval, giving rise to a world of intelligent rifle-wielding apes that, as here, look cooler than all hell. So let’s just pay attention to where we’re at, and what’s happening now, and also…show notes!

Better than never: Hibbs on 6/27

Brian Hibbs

As far as I am concerned, this isn’t “last week’s comics” until I open the front door of the store on Wednesday!

Wait, What? Ep. 88: Starry-Eyed Cynics

Jeff Lester

Yup, we continue to make headway on Operation: Q&A, with perhaps as many as *ten* full questions answered in this, Episode 88 of your friendly, neighborhood Wait, What? podcast. The wolf is at my door (figuratively speaking) so allow me to fill you in on what to expect and then I’ll have to run (literally speaking–I don’t know, it gets complicated but you can figure it out): For a hearty two hours and five minutes (with the first ten devoted strictly to music talk), Graeme McMillan and I gab about which Alan Moore’s universe we’d like to see continued; the recent first issues of Batman Inc., The Ravagers, and Superman Family Adventures; Erik Larsen and The Savage Dragon; digital content and comics…  Read More…

Here comes Crankypants!: Hibbs’ 5/23

Brian Hibbs

Here I am, here I am!

Wait, What? Ep. 48.2: Men of Brickbats

Jeff Lester

Yes, a bit later but still better than never, and maybe a good way to beat the San Diego blues? That’s certainly one way to describe our conclusion to Wait, What? Episode 48. Another way to describe it might be to mention that it’s almost 70 minutes long, and in it Graeme McMillan and I talking Batman, Inc. #7, Dark Horse Presents #1 and #2, Witch Doctor #1, The Creeper Omnibus, the founders of continuity and their later careers, Marvel’s Iron Age miniseries, and Firestorm: The Nuclear Man, along with all the usual digressions and what-have-yous you might expect from us. The episode should’ve hit iTunes by now, but you are also welcome to listen to it here, if that’s…  Read More…

Graeme Tries To Remember How This Capsule Thing Works For Some 5/11 Books

Graeme McMillan

Call me a sentimental old fool if you must, but it feels to me like the best way to do a post on the 10th birthday of the Savage Critics is to go old school, and try and remember how those capsule reviews of yore worked… (Click through for nostalgia! But scroll down to read Hibbs’ post, if you haven’t already!)

(Inset witty title here)

Brian Hibbs

Why is it that that the weeks with lots and lots of things to discuss are weeks where I have some other deadline driven project (order form, ONOMATOPOEIA, whatever), but the week’s I have time to write there’s not a lot I actually want to say?   Still, I’ve been horrible the last few weeks, and while I did a lot of writing for the next Savage Symposium, I don’t think you’ll see that for another week or three? So let’s me dive into what I have to say here…   PUNISHERMAX #13: This book seriously lost its momentum when it went on that hiatus (seriously, we lost like 1/3 of our sales here at Comix Experience), but I have…  Read More…
