Wait, What? Ep. 141: Tomorrow’s Controversies Today

Jeff Lester

The Delight that was Tony Daniels’ Detective Comics. From issue #1. THANKSGIVING! CHRISTMAS! NEW YEAR’S! THE TERROR NEVER ENDS! Actually, it’s not really that bad, but all these holidays and holiday related get-togethers are keeping us very, very busy.  So!  After the show notes, please join us for two hours of desperate comics blabbity-blab and the show notes dedicated to same!

“…FLYING Bicycles Don’t LEAVE Treadmarks!” COMICS! Sometimes Justice Wears A Unitard!

John Kane

Look, I’ll level with you. Here in the UK it’s far  too hot to write intros. It’s so hot I just stepped in my own face. So this is your lot. Ho! Ho! It am Bizarro Gary Groth! Or is it? Read on to find out as we explore the magical world of old super hero comics!

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.

A buncha zeroes

Brian Hibbs

Yeah, so the DC “Zero month”, hows that working out?

Wait, What? Ep. 99: Ex See, Eye Ex

Jeff Lester

From Gabrielle Bell’s The Voyeurs This is a pretty decent episode, I think, and we’ve got at least one surprise announcement in it (a less-surprising announcement: this is a skip week for us, so there’ll be no episode next week), as well as some talk about books not out yet, books that may have slid past your radar, and we get our Englehart on. God yes, do we get our Englehart on. After the jump: Show notes! Show link! Show…me the money?

The Last Week Of the First Year: A quick DC Survey

Brian Hibbs

Next week starts month #13 for the DCnu, so maybe it’s a good moment to take stock? Surprisingly, yes, it is, with what they shipped this week!

Wait, What? Ep. 76: Dares, Wins

Jeff Lester

And Lo, There Shall Come…An Answering! For most of you, anyway.  I fully confess Graeme and I did punt on a few questions that were either complex enough to take up a full podcast at a later date, or so good that it would require better men than us to answer it.  (Ah, yes: the old “It’s not  you, Listener Question, it’s us” strategy–never leave home without it.) Anyway, as you might imagine with so many exceptional inquiries, it would take us a while to answer them–and of course us being us, we’re going to go egregiously off-topic, right?–so, yeah.  Two hours and forty minutes is what we’ve got for you. We talk so long Graeme turns into The Lord…  Read More…

Graeme Takes On The New 52. All At Once.

Graeme McMillan

You know, before DC Comics so politely sent me the entire run of the New 52 launch issues, I don’t think that I’d ever read an entire month’s worth of a superhero universe before. I have to say, it’s kind of exhausting. But that doesn’t mean that I’m not going to try and run down very quick capsule reviews of all 52 right here, right now, as Fatboy Slim once said many many years ago oh God I am so old.

Lanterns, that is.

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.

Four ones and a sixty-seven: Hibbs on 7/13

Brian Hibbs

Comics, comics, comics! I’m dancin’ as fast as I can!

Wait, What? Ep. 47.2: My Third Ebook

Jeff Lester

And here we go with our conclusion to Episode 47 of Wait, What?  In it, Graeme and I talk X-Men: First Class (the movie) and Green Lantern (the movie), Gingerbread Girl (the graphic novel), Graeme’s picks for DC’s September relaunch, and more. Oh, and we also briefly discuss that awesome Mindless Ones podcast interview which you can hear here and read here. This installment can be found on iTunes, and you can also listen to it here: Wait, What? Ep. 47.2: My Third Ebook We hope you enjoy it and we appreciate your patronage!    

Wait, What? Ep. 46: Sympathy for the Mephisto Analogue

Jeff Lester

So much time! So little to do! (Wait a minute. Reverse that.) It’s the latest episode of Wait, What? wherein Graeme McMillan and yours truly talk about those comic books what need talking about: Wolverine #9; Flashpoint tie-ins The Superman Project #1 and Reverse Flash #1; James Robinson’s JLA; Earth X; Green Lantern Mosaic; Kirby Genesis #1; Steve Englehart’s Captain America and much more. You might even discover the true identity of that cute little tyke up there. It should be available on iTunes by now, and it is also the sort of thing that you could be listening to here and now, if that’s the sort of thing that kung-pao’s your chicken: Wait, What? Ep. 45: Sympathy for the…  Read More…

Green Lantern: The Movie

Brian Hibbs

I had to wait a little while to see Green Lantern because of scheduling issues with Ben — he’s in a crazy amount of camps, with enrichment afterwards (soccer, swimming, etc), and then weekends with his grandparents that Wednesday was the first chance we had to go together. And what’s the point of seeing a superhero movie if you’re not taking your seven year old?  

Wait, What? Ep. 45: It Will Be Brought.

Jeff Lester

And so without further delay, Graeme and I are back with another podcast episode designed to amuse and bemuse.  (“Design” might be a little too strong a word, though.)  In this ep., we discuss our preparations (both mental and physical) for seeing Green Lantern: The Movie, as well as the Marvel event from 1989 Atlantis Attacks; Mark Gruenwald’s legacy on Captain America; Jack Kirby, Neil Gaiman, the Berganza/Didio interview tour, Avenging Spider-Man, the perfect setting for Tron 3, SDCC, and more.   You can find it on iTunes or listen to it here: Wait, What? Ep. 45: It Will Be Brought. Finally, we hope you enjoy Graeme’s dramatic interpretation of a beloved comic book character, which I’ve excerpted below in the…  Read More…

Tucker Goes Deep Inside Hal Jordan’s War

Tucker Stone

Green Lantern 64 (Part One of War of The Green Lanterns) Hal Jordan? Funny you asked. As a result of of the death of his father, he’s refused to acknowledge fear, forever living a life of risk and insubordination. He lacks professionalism and restraint and has never been able to keep his emotions in check. The Green Lantern Corps–a paramilitary police organization whose shield he operates under–was willing to look the other way, until he started hanging out with aliens who have and use colored rings from other spokes of what’s been called “The Emotional Spectrum”. Forming what’s been called the Rainbow Squadron, this unofficial team of Jordan’s is unacceptable to the Corps, so he must be, and he will be…arrested….  Read More…

Some Comics from 8/25

Brian Hibbs

Less time than I thought this week — too much message boarding (How does any of those incessant Newsarama posters get ANYthing done in real life? Do they just post on their boss’ dime all day or something? Are they all pale 13 year olds who never see the sun? Someone should do a study!), plus, last night our Television went out so we need to go buy a new one this morning. So just a quick couple of reviews so, y’know, they don’t take my blogging rights away from me. By the way, do I need to insert possible spoiler warnings for the below? Or is it just assumed?
