Wait, What? Ep. 138: Gone Galoshing

Jeff Lester

Ahh, nostalgia. I used to love that cover….and I know I should crop out that border.  But. Hey, Internet! My apologies in advance–things are rushed, except maybe a little more so! My Monday schedule changed around a bit so it’s gonna be a rush on my part to make sure they still happen before Tuesday morning. All of which is to say: join me after the jump for some very hasty show notes, yes?

Wait, What? Ep. 136: Finally, Finally, Finally.

Jeff Lester

Anyone remember in what book Tolkien references the Battle of the Open-Faced Sandwich?  Infographic/opening salvo by the invincible Kate McMillan. Oh, man. I hope that infographic does not hog up too much of our precious SavCrit real estate–please don’t miss Abhay writing about Lazarus or that piece about how DC ran its print runs for Villains Month, or other fine entries! Also, do join us after the jump for shownotes for our latest “Reunited-and-it-feels-so-good-except-Graeme-and-I-exchange-words-about-Game-of-Thrones-so-how-good-can-we-feel-really?” podcast!

Wait, What? Ep. 131: Linkpocalypse

Jeff Lester

Motofumi Kobayashi’s Cat Shit One: Another great reason to love comics. Yes, okay! As always, I have nothing clever to say in this space, but unlike always, I’m not going to waste your time saying it. I’ve got show notes with images! Links! Prizes! (There are no prizes!) Torrid confessions! (There probably will not be any torrid confessions.) After the jump: Show Note Machine…Go!

“Rodeo Ain’t Over Yet!” COMICS! Sometimes I Don’t Have A Title!

John Kane

Hello! Here are some words about some comics. The sales figures analysis is just below this. Very good it is too! To clarify, the Hibbs’ stuff is good, not this stuff. Anyway, this…

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!

Wait, What? Ep. 111: Things That Go Wrong…

Jeff Lester

It’s….not easy to explain. Trust me. Oh, man.  Remember all the questions you guys asked us and we didn’t get to?  Well, don’t say we didn’t start 2013 right! After the jump:  Show notes,  no more terrifying photos, still kissing with saliva, etc., etc.

Wait, What? Ep. 106: You Are Number Six.

Jeff Lester

At Graeme’s Behest: the cover to Colder #1 Yeah, that’s a pleasant way to get your Tuesday rolling, eh? Anyhoo, very truncated version of things this time around, I’m afraid but after the jump…show notes!

“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!

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?

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!

“Bleedhounds Kin Find Anythin’!” COMICS! Sometimes They Are Assorted!

John Kane

So, you know how it should go: 1) Read comics 2) Think about comics  3) Write about comics 4) Post writing 5) Fret about having upset someone. Rinse and repeat. Well I did 1) and forgot to do 2) so that shivved 3), 4) and 5) right in the kidneys didn’t it? So all you get is what I read last night. I’ll try and do better next time. Also: Don’t forget the 100TH PODCAST BY GRAEME MCMILLAN and JEFF LESTER is due THIS WEEK! It will be MONUMENTAL! It will be ASTOUNDING! It will be the BEST THING EVER! No pressure, guys!

Wait, What? Ep. 93: Thrill Power Overboard

Jeff Lester

Above: The Chocolate Waffle, which is a liege waffle covered in dark chocolate, from The Waffle Window, Portland, OR Yup, Episode 93.  I would say more but I’m slightly overwhelmed with the amount of shite multitasking I’m currently doing (kinda dashing back and forth between two computers at opposite ends of the room at the moment, which neither makes me feel like a mad scientist or a keyboardist in Journey but just someone who is old, Internet, so terribly old). On the other hand (and behind the jump):  show notes!

Wait, What? Ep. 92: Brave Faces

Jeff Lester

Above: the Tomato Bs waffle, which is tomatoes, brie and basil on a savory liege waffle, from The Waffle Window, Portland, OR   So, never let it be said, we don’t go the full nine yards for you here at Castle Wait, What?  For episode 92, not only did I drive 630 miles, set up and record this podcast in Graeme’s attic, drive 630 miles back, mix, edit, and upload the podcast, but I also provided detailed show notes for you! Not sure if it’s one time only thing or not, but join me behind the link so you can smoke it while you’ve got it!

Ten Things: FATALE Issues #1 to 5

Abhay Khosla

Hello.  So, I started really reading comics again, new ones.  Except for that Joost Swarte book (which is really terrific, by the way), I feel like I’d mostly focused on old ones for a sizable chunk of this year, revisiting books that made me happy.  That seemed like the healthiest way of dealing with the Comics News this year.  I was in a “none of those people get my money; my precious, precious money; me gold, give me back me gold” mood.  I call my new fashionz the Executive Leprechaun. Anyways, that mood passed, so I’ve been looking for stuff to read– wound up buying a lot of the new Image books that have been coming out, for good or…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 86: Defending Your Life

Jeff Lester

(Visual from Art Spigelman’s piece on Maurice Sendak unrelated to this episode, but I adore it too much to ignore it!) Hail and well met, fellow Whatnauts! Sadly, my M.O. of dashing something off in a state approaching sheer terror continues as I managed to put this together in time to hit all of our deadlines but with unexpected side-effect of stripping my soul down to its most bald-tiredian self. Forgive me, won’t you? But, hey, at least as a result you get to dig into the nougaty goodness that is Wait, What? Ep. 86. Packed with seven essential vitamins and minerals, the latest episode of Graeme and I answering your questions is part of this complete breakfast. [Quick shot…  Read More…

“It Is Not The FIRST TIME This Has Happened.” COMICS! Sometimes They Are Hot Off The Griddle!

John Kane

Hey old people, remember Sunday evening when you were a kid?: Urrrrrhhhh! Let’s take the Sunday Blues away with some piffle about our four colour floppy friends! COMICS!!!

“Let Him Be A Child A Little Longer.” COMICS! Sometimes They Are Diverse!

John Kane

Hey, the postman finally turned up. I guess the hostiles must have been restless out there in the Badlands or something. Anyway, he may not have rung twice but he did drop off a box of comics. Here’s me going on about some of them after the break:

All this and Earth, too? Hibbs starts on 5/2

Brian Hibbs

Everybody loves comics!

Wait, What? Ep. 82: The Problem With Problems

Jeff Lester

Hola, chicos! The above image is from Dave Sim’s Glamourpuss #24, just one of many fine comic book hoohahs under discussion in episode 82 of the latest podcast from the brilliant (but presently ill!) Graeme McMillan and the generally slow-on-the-uptake (but mostly healthy!) yours truly. I gotta say, we pretty much drove right in on this one, and ended up talking Action Comics #8 in the first three minutes of this two hour twenty-five minute blabapalooza, and also managed to hit topics like OMAC #8, the colorization of  Scott Pilgrim, the battles behind the TV show Community, a great blog post by Steve K. about the state of the comics Internet, Casanova #3, Supreme #20, Fatale #4, Strike Force Morituri,…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 78: Quotes From Pandora Three-Sixteen

Jeff Lester

(This installment’s accidental shout-out courtesy of Action Comics #7) Normally, I try and pitch some rhetorical woo at you as a way to encourage or remind you to listen to this miniature stage play of the mind  Graeme (with his smooth, Noel Cowardesque line delivery) and I (with my stammering Method Actor incoherence) offer up each week. However, as the soul-stealing monster known as Daylight Savings Time has arrived to demand the tribute of an hour from each of us trembling villagers, I fear I’ve got nothing especially fleet-footed with which to charm you, merely the verbal posturings of the maladroit and the overwrought.  The sundial? Tis broken.  The hourglass? Now hollow. But if you wish to remember me fondly,…  Read More…

“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).
