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!

I have no title, and I must scream! Hibbs’ 5/22/13

Thoughts on Twelve Angry Comics from this week, below that jump

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.

“I Tried Everything Else.” COMICS! Sometimes Chaykin’s Awake!!!

John Kane

Hopefully you all made it through any storms okay, my American friends! If you did I’ve got some rubbish about comics for ya. Content! You might not want it, you might not like it but it’s there!

Everyone Loses: Hibbs on 9/3′s cape comics

Brian Hibbs

Four superhero books below that cut!

“Walter-bout An Audition?” COMICS! Sometimes It’s That Company That Doesn’t Respect Jack Kirby!

John Kane

Then I read some Marvel comics! I wouldn’t want anyone to accuse me of being in DC’s pocket now would I? I should bloody cocoa, chum! So yeah, the same one-note entitled whining will now follow but with different pictures posted in between the words! Bountiful Brian Hibbs’ Shipping List is under this linguistic lard!

“Clod. I Have WEAPONS…” Comics! Sometimes They Are Almost Fresh!

John Kane

It’s a post about comics! Is it early? Is it late? Time is in flux! Only if one man can face his Pull List can The Balance be restored! One Man. One Pull List. There will be Words… (…probably the wrong ones).

Wait, What? Ep. 66: Winter Oner-Land

Jeff Lester

The image above ties into the podcast in only the most tangential of ways (we discuss Frank Springer for the merest of moments) but I had to include this image, in no small part because I’ve been enjoying Graeme’s Comics Advent Calendar over at Blog@ Newsarama so much. (And because…the Hatemonger for the Holidays?  May be even more topical now than when it was published…) So, anyhoo.  We had one of those podcasts where we only spoke for around ninety minutes and there wasn’t much of a place to cut it very neatly.  (I wasn’t crazy about doing an hour ten for part one, and thirty minutes for part two.) So this is a “oner” episode for you, with Mr….  Read More…

Hibbs and the Single 11/30 (part one)

Brian Hibbs

Haven’t finished reading everything yet for the week, so this is just part one… but I’ll be pretty close to Old School Savage Critting, here…

“…I’m Taking The Case.” Comics! Sometimes They Aren’t Older Than Your Grandad!

John Kane

Here’s an image from DAREDEVIL #4; a comic that isn’t talked about within. But I just really, really wanted it up there so I indulged myself. I do go on about #5 of DAREDEVIL though. Is that alright? Are you sure? Because it matters to me! Well, I can’t promise to help but I did write some words about some comics that were actually published this Century. Yay me! Oh yeah, one of the images may be NSFW, depends where you work, I guess?

Wait, What? Ep. 61.1: Same As It Ever Was….

Jeff Lester

(And look where my hand was.) Hey, we are back! After a pleasant two week respite, Graeme McMillan and I have returned with the first installment of Wait, What? Episode 61. And as you can see, we have a nifty new piece of fanart to bring along with us, courtesy of the awesomely talented Garrett Berner (who some of us also know on Twitter as The Mighty Gar). Well, that’s all fine and good, you say, but what about the podcast?  And I am happy to report it should already be up on iTunes and making its way back into your heart, like it had never left, just like some kind of ringworm or intestinal parasite.  And in it, we…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 58.2: A Set of Steak Knives

Jeff Lester

No idea. No idea. I remember I had some brilliant idea about the image to go with this episode and it’s just…gone. Thought I wrote it down and everything. Fortunately, I still feel comfortable ganking images from Mr. Tim at the amazing Our Valued Customers. In fact, this wasn’t even the image I’d planned to use but I jumped over there and thought this was brilliant enough to disseminate widely. (Man, those two words seem pervy next to one another. “Disseminate widely.” Brrrrgh.) So no, be warned, we do not talk Big Bang Theory on this latest not-quite-forty-minutes-and-therefore-is-considered-wee-by-our-standards installment of Wait, What? But Graeme and I do talk Green Lantern Corps, Birds of Prey, Daredevil #4, Witch Doctor #3, LoSH…  Read More…

Wait, What? 57.1: Ones Divided by Two

Jeff Lester

Howdy, everyone. My apologies in advance for such a rushed entry, but I’m actually taking a break from editing 57.2 and my concentration is a little bit on the “shot” side of things. Although I’m very happy San Francisco has decided to grace us with some lovely, lovely weather, my apartment is too hot in a “why doesn’t my brain work?” kind of way. (Now I know how the rest of the U.S. felt this summer…) Anyhoo, Wait, What? 57.1! It’s very nearly an hour, and Graeme McMillan and I discussing not only the Miles Morales-based Ultimate Spider-Man #1 and the subime Daredevil #3, but also New 52 books like Deathstroke #1 ( with some spoilers), Red Lantern #1, Frankenstein,…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 53.1: Why Are They Smiling?

Jeff Lester

I kinda like that I’ve decided to call this installment, “Why Are They Smiling?” and I have a this illustration of someone asking “Why are they smiling?” and also maybe someone says it in the very podcast, too. It’s a bit like “Merv Griffin!”, that most excellent Milk & Cheese cartoon, and it’s a bit like that “turtles all the way down” meme, and a bit like that faux-Jack T. Chick Cthulhu strip, and it’s a bit like I have headache and can’t really think of anything especially subtle. So. Due to said headache, I will skip the program notes which I’ve been trying to add (not really sure if they’re helping anyone or not, anyway) and, hmmm, maybe I…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 50.1: The Devil, We Say

Jeff Lester

Yes, here we have it–Wait, What?’s fiftieth episode, filled with talk by Graeme McMillan and Yours Truly about Daredevil #1, the Defenders relaunch, Incognito and creator expectation in comics, Jim Starlin and Jim Shooter, Alan Moore’s Captain Britain, and our usual ephemera jammed into just over an hour. And since I’ve been told that “context” is this year’s big buzzword among podcasters as the number one thing listeners would like, lemme point you toward this post by Jim Shooter in particular, and this interview with Ed Brubaker as things what might help in capturing this mythical “context” creature. (Also, it should be pointed out that, despite the title and the graphic up top we didn’t talk nearly enough about Daredevil…  Read More…

“Hey, Title that Post, Hibbs!” — stuff from 7/20

Two Comics, and a Film!

Marvel’s Best And Worst: Graeme Looks At Comics From 7/13, 7/20

Graeme McMillan

It’s been awhile, but that’s because of too much work/vacation/too much work, respectively. But! Finally! Comics! Well, some of them, anyway.

Abhay: "3 Jacks" by Ann Nocenti, David Aja, Matt Hollingsworth, and Chris Eliopoulos

Abhay Khosla

So, “3 Jacks”—pretty much the best Marvel comic of the year so far, right? Tim O’Neil agrees; I agree; I don’t know who else has weighed in. “3 Jacks” is a 13-page back-up feature in DAREDEVIL #500, created by Ann Nocenti, David Aja, Matt Hollingsworth and Chris Eliopoulos. The rest of the comic is inert; not worth anyone’s time. But: “3 Jacks,” everybody! Where do we start? Well, let’s start with the first page. The opening panel: buildings in silhouette, with the Coney Island Parachute Jump tower above the skyline. I don’t know much about the Parachute Jump tower, but: at the angle chosen, the way Aja draws it, does it resembles a cross to you? Our metal-crucifix is located…  Read More…

The Wire Holds My Jaw In Due To A Wallet Chain Removing The Gum That Holds Normal Lower Jaws In

Tucker Stone

Still adrift in the sea of figuring out how to carve a niche for myself amongst the Savage Critics sea of talent, a task made that much worse ever since The Hibbsnation 2000 vetoed my proposed 27 part multimedia series “Fantasy Tales Involving Chris Eckert Coating The Chest Of Sean Collins in Warm Peanut Oil,” but unwilling to break for the beckoning seas of non-participation, I, you’re friendly Can O’ Spinach, thought it might be best to just dive in and “punch the keys” as if I was a poor kid trying to get through private school on something besides my amazing free throw skillz. Lay down all your burdens, unbuckle your pants, throw on Japan’s Adolescent Sex: this was…  Read More…
