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. 117: Sometimes Dead is Better

Jeff Lester

One of Annie Wu’s great covers from the interior of Hawkeye #8. Yep, it looks like this posting on Monday thing might be our new podcasting schedule for the conceivable future.  I hope it is not a problem for everyone (including Hibbs, who just posted the shipping list a few hours ago, do go check it out and comment. After the jump: our charming and trying-hard-to-be-respectable old chum–the show notes.

Wait, What? Ep. 115: Less Than Greek

Jeff Lester

“It’s funny! It says ‘I choo-choo-choose you’ and then there’s a picture of Aquaman.” Well, on the plus side? It is a Monday and we have a new Wait, What? for you–almost an entire day early! On the minus side, we won’t be recording this week due to Valentine’s Day, so there won’t be a recording next week, I am totally behind the eight ball on my other projects, and I couldn’t get Graeme to draw a Don-Wan Kihotay for us. After the jump, this week’s episode and some super-speedy show notes!

The Digital Bits

Brian Hibbs

You may recall that when we started the digital store here, I promised that I would keep things transparent and out in the open about our results. So, here ya’ go.

Linkbait!

Brian Hibbs

I think I will have some reviews up Very Soon (maybe even today, if I follow the plan in my head), but in the meantime, here’s a little link bait of stuff that’s been sitting around in my browser and made me think a little or a lot:

Shop Update: Double Barrel Achievement Unlocked!

Jeff Lester

Hey, everybody.  Jeff here with a double reminder that: (a) Double Barrel #5 is out today; and (even better) (b) all issues of Double Barrel are available for purchase from the Savage Critic store! As regular listeners to the Wait, What? podcast know, Graeme and I are huge fans of this two-talent monthly anthology from Top Shelf.  Each new issue is $1.99 and usually features approx. 1oo+ pages of great comics and enjoyable comics crafting essays.  (Issue #4 is only 81 pages.)  But since Top Shelf drops the price on the previous issues, you can get issues #1-4 for at $0.99 a pop.  There are two main recurring serials: Zander Cannon’s Heck, about a modern-day adventurer who uses his house’s…  Read More…

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

Brian Hibbs

Four superhero books below that cut!

The Digital Store

Brian Hibbs

Wholly unbeknownst to me, the store looks to have been down for some amount of time.  Maybe months, I’m not sure. (That sounds sad, but I don’t buy digital comics, and no one mailed me to say “its not working!” — I just hadn’t notced I wasn’t getting regular paypal notices of purchases any longer).  BUT.. it’s working again now, after, lord, nearly a week of back and forth of figuring out what went wrong.  You can find the store right here -B

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. 95: Flop Flips

Jeff Lester

Above: Izzy’s Guac & Lox with extra red onion and sliced tomato, on an onion bagel, from Los Bagels in Arcata, CA. Oh, man.  I don’t know if you’ve ever had the above but if you do–I highly recommend it.  It’s a little pricey, but the guacamole is great and the lox are fresh.  Just a fine old dining experience. But you’re not here for the food talk, are you? (Wait…are you?)  You are here, in theory, for the latest installment of Wait, What? Ep. 95, so join me behind the jump for….show notes!

Wait, What? Ep. 90: Back in the Game

Jeff Lester

Ladies and Gentlemen: GRAEME MCMILLAN IS. The nice thing about writing a post during which you lose your mind and decide the best thing to be done is to embed as many of the lyrics of an Elvis Costello song as you can is you realize: (a) it can’t be topped; and (b) maybe you’re allowed to go easy on yourself every now and again; and (c) your attempts to give the page a catchy image and a bit of punchy jibbety-jab really only go so far, as it’s the actual thing you are introducing that people are (or are not) here for. (Also, you realize you are addicted to parentheticals and alphabetized lists, and have no idea exactly how…  Read More…

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…

New on the digital store this week

Brian Hibbs

I really should put this list up on Wednesday mornings, shouldn’t I?

New Tilting is up!

Brian Hibbs

You can read the latest right here, as I talk about FCBD, changes at DC Entertainment, Diamond’s breaking street date, and some bits on digital. I’m a little behind on writing reviews (as I pretty much haven’t read any comics yet this week [it's been hectic], but I expect I’ll get something up BEFORE the next batch arrives, just watch me! -B

Digital: Week 1

Brian Hibbs

There’s NO WAY I am going to do this each and every week, but I thought it might be instructive to look at first week digital sales here. So far, we’ve sold six comics. One was to a fellow retailer, who, when contacted, said “just wanted to see what the user experience would be like, thought that was worth $4!”, so I’m kind of not going to count that one. Of the remaining five, and I find this FASCINATING, only 2 of the 5 were a book from a review (in this case, Popeye #1… which, additionally, IDW seems sold out on; or at least, there were no copies to reorder this week) Two other sales were for Danger Club…  Read More…

Byte Me!

Brian Hibbs

Hey, remember a few weeks ago when I said “There’s a big announcement coming!”, and then I had to walk that back a little? Well, hey, it’s here, below the jump!

Big and Bad: Hibbs 4/4’s

Brian Hibbs

I know you’d never know it from my Industry-driven posting (seriously? It’s what I DO), but I’ve actually been sick as a dog the last week, and have barely read any comics at all. But I said “I’m back on the horse”, and, barring the two weeks where I couldn’t log on TO post here, I am , I am! So, here’s 3 (or maybe 4) books, below the cut.

About Waid’s “Print Math”

Brian Hibbs

Mark Waid has a very thorough post over here on “Print Math” that I think everyone should read. I started to write this as a response in the comments thread, but then realized it would be quite a bit longer than a comments thread response should probably be, and, anyway, would almost certainly be down at response #80 or something by the time I finished writing it, so I thought it better to dance the dance over here, below the cut.

Wait, What? Ep. 81: On Tact Cleanses

Jeff Lester

[Image above from the awesome Sharknife: Double Z by Corey Lewis, which we did not discuss in this episode, but believe me it was rad.] Sorry, sorry, for reasons that will probably be apart for those who listen to the podcast, I’ve got to pull some serious Hello!, I Must Be Going shit because I’m on night nine of the ten day Flowers for Algernon diet. So join poor old Graeme McMillan and I for two-plus hours of the jibberty that goes jabberty.  Our topics include The Silence of Our Friends by Nate Powell and Mark Long; Shooters by Steve Lieber, Brandon Jerwa and Eric S. Trautmann; Friends with Boys by Faith Erin Hicks; digital comics and Infinite comics; Spaceman…  Read More…

Hibbs says “Heeellllo 3/14’s comics!”

Brian Hibbs

Two weeks in a row, yeah, baybee.

Some small notes RE: DC (& Digital) from this year’s ComicsPRO meeting

Brian Hibbs

I’m just back from Dallas and the 2012 ComicsPRO meeting. I forgot that the laptop didn’t have any of the log-in info for the Savage Critic site, and I forgot to write it all down, so, gr to that! I have an entire Tilting column that I’m going to write which is sort of kind of “about” the meeting (but not really, since that won’t be for three more weeks, and then we’re talking about the past, which no one ever likes!), but I don’t think I’ll have any room there for any of this stuff. I wrote these all down on scraps of paper, but I did ask that I can report them… but I might have made a…  Read More…
