“Working Together In The Name Of The Common Good…” COMICS! Sometimes Creators Don’t Get To Pick Their Fans! (Ever, Actually. Now I think About It.)

John Kane

It’s a Skip Week! (Booo!) So let’s see what falls out of my head (Yay!). Checking the Savage Critic’s mail bag I see several of you may have contacted me expressing intense distress that I have yet to tell you how 2013 panned out for Howard Victor Chaykin.  It was definitely several or none. It’s so hard to remember these things. So, hedging my bets I’ll tell you anyway…

“spilf!” Comics! Sometimes They Are Probably Not Everybody’s Cup of Tea!

And now, as demanded by literally nobody at all, I look at BLACK KISS 2 by Howard Victor Chaykin. No, no need to thank me. Your smiles are reward enough. Of course you’ll only be clicking on MORE! if you are Over 18 years of age. I can trust you, can’t I? Anyway, this…

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. 102: Age of Chance

Jeff Lester

From the thirteenth issue of Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, assembled by Miguel Corti. The episode–she is long! (Just a bit over two hours and forty minutes, in fact.) The show notes–they are extensive! So join me after the jump for both, and a bit more about Watchmen issue #13!

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?

“Guh, UH. Huh, HUH.” COMICS! Sometimes They Are Unseemly!

John Kane

So, Howard Victor Chaykin returned to his successful BLACK KISS creation and penned a sequel. What could possibly go wrong!?! (SPOILER: I liked it.)

Wait, What? Ep. 96: Cool as Cooks

Jeff Lester

Our first non-food podcast pic in a month and of course it’s David Aja from Marvel’s Hawkeye #1. Graeme and I are getting dangerously close to the big #100. (Almost in time for Onomatopoeia #200!)  I feel like we should do something special but…God only knows what? Anyway, join me behind the jump, won’t you, for show notes so you can discover what we did for this episode. (Hint: it rhymes with “balk a lout’s tonic schnooks…”)

No. More. BJs! – Hibbs on 8/1/12

Brian Hibbs

Foggy, gray Sunday here at the store (yes, working this weekend as well), but comics bring light and happiness!

“Let ‘Em Loose, Bobo!” COMICS! Sometimes They May Arouse The Proles!

How goes the day! I guess after that Olympics Opening Ceremony I should just assure all our American friends, particularly your President, that the National Health Service doesn’t actually mean that you have a socialist nation 3,000 miles off the coast of America. And, no, if you let this stand all of Europe isn’t going to go next in a kind of domino effect. You guys are so ansty! Connor Willumson/Jason Latour (art/words) I read some comics and then did the words thing. You can do the reading bit if you like, if there’s nowt on the box.
