Wait, What? Ep. 144: The “Ass” in “Assemble”

Jeff Lester

Fuck yes, Shaolin Cowboy. Hey, so it’s another installment of Wait, What?, and I think maybe this fortnightly thing is going to work out?  (Provided you don’t abandon us in droves or something…)  Whereas our last installment was two hours and us whingeing on about the news, this one is two hours and is us whingeing about comics we’ve read.  Brilliant! After the jump, Jeff makes some brilliantly incorrect statements about Shaolin Cowboy in service of a perfectly good theory, Graeme fills us in on the most successfully monetized fanfic since 50 Shades of Grey, and we do that thing about the first twenty-five issues of Avengers that would finally allow an old man like me to type ‘smh’ except…  Read More…

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. 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. 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!

Spiders and such

Brian Hibbs

Hey, the holidays are over, more free time becomes available, back to reviewing, I think. Yay? The “big news” of the month is all about Spider-Man, and I’d like to discuss ASM #700 and SSM #1, but will be doing so in several spoiler-ific ways.  If you don’t want spoilers, don’t travel below the “more” line (or, if you’re on RSS, look away now)

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. 103: Churls on Film

Jeff Lester

They had me at “Kpow!”: Gil Kane Atom slugs Gil Kane Green Lantern, from Justice League of America #200. And so it’s that time again, O Mighty Whatnauts.  Join us behind the jump for show notes and kvetching, ‘kay?

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!

Wait, What? Ep. 77: The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking

Jeff Lester

(Illustration from Chapter 166 of Bakuman. Remember it’s a right-to-left world out there.) Remember how The Uncanny X-Men would, like, get psychically mind-raped by The Hellfire Club, or shot full of Brood babies and be torn apart from the inside, or bound and gagged to the inside of Magneto’s rumpus room, and then afterward there’d be an issue of them playing baseball and walking around the recently rebuilt (since it had also been recently destroyed) mansion of Professor X? This episode is a little bit like that, I guess, with Graeme and I recovering from answering (almost) everyone’s questions and having ourselves quite the crazy time of it on the Internet.  So Episode 77 is two hours of amiable chitchat…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 51.2: Nothing and All

Jeff Lester

What’s that saying? “A day late and a dollar short?” The Early Bird Gets the Podcast Entry?” I don’t know…something like that. In any event, the rousing conclusion to Wait, What? Episode 51 is here with Graeme and myself talking X-Force #12, Captain America and Bucky #620, Witch Doctor #2, Walking Dead #87, Criminal: Last of the Innocent #2, Kirby Genesis #2, Dan Slott’s Spider-Man and Paul Levitz’s Legion of Super-Heroes, and — believe it or not — more. Itunes? Why yes, it’s there (or should be) but it is also very much here, ready to be listened to and perhaps even loved: Wait, What? Ep. 51.2: Nothing and All As always, we hope you enjoy it and appreciate your…  Read More…
