Wait, What? Ep. 132: The Village, People

Jeff Lester

Jack Kirby on The Prisoner. Ahh, what could’ve been…. Howdy, Whatnauts!  The good news is: I think I fixed the recording levels for this episode so your eardrums will not bleed whenever I speak.  (Though I’ll miss feeling like Black Bolt.)  The bad news is:  I started on this kind of late and so powered on through the show notes.  They are….very, very brief. If last week’s notes were a leisurely feast, this week’s notes are a shaky handful of peanuts devoured standing up by the sink. And with that effortless bit of salesmanship out of the way, join me behind the jump!

Wait, What? The Special 2013 SDCC Episode

Jeff Lester

From this month’s Megazine and kinda appropriate in many ways…. Yeah, this is as close as you’re going to get as podcasting in real time, Whatnauts — Graeme and I talked for half an hour just a few hours ago, and I decided I’d get this edited and uploaded for you to enjoy.  Super-brief show notes for a super-brief SDCC special after the jump!

Wait, What? Ep. 127: Capers

Jeff Lester

Welcome to my nightmare, ladies and gentlemen.  My terrifying longbox filled nightmare. After the jump: very quick shownotes because I am running behind, and I have a tummy ache! (And I am apparently eight!) (Oh, and check out those John K(UK) posts below, would you?  They’re very good — I’m not even a father but I felt a special paternal glow from having all those 2001 covers and splash pages reprinted.  The perfect gift!

Smitty Gets in with Four Comics from 6/12

(Knock, Knock) Hello friend.  I represent the universal church of Cyber Terrorist Group, Ascension.  Perhaps you’ve heard of us?  Though rumours abound regarding our lack of resources – I assure you – we will play a role in the new Superman Unchained comic pamphlet!

Wait, What? Ep. 121: Gilded View

Jeff Lester

Erroneously called ‘Barbarian Romance’ by Jeff throughout the hours that follow. Image, I believe, by Corey Lewis for Brandon Graham; Apologies if that link is a jerk. Oh my god, it almost doesn’t matter what hour of the day or night it is, my next door neighbors WILL NOT FUCKING SHUT UP. After the jump: show notes just the way Thomas Hobbes would like ‘em: nasty, brutish and short.  (Actually, just short.)

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.

Wait, What? Ep. 113: Technically Difficult

Jeff Lester

A page from Shotaro Ishinomori’s Kikaider, which we didn’t even discuss this week but which I kinda adore, nonetheless… ATTENTION, ATTENTION, NEXT WEEK WILL BE A SKIP WEEK FOR THE PODCAST.  NEXT WAIT IS A WEEK, WHAT? SKIPCAST! You may not care.  In fact, you may be relieved but either way, Graeme and I will not be talking one another’s ear off this week so there won’t be anything for you to listen to from us next week.  Maybe you can get out of the house for a bit?  Go for a walk?  Realize that although it’s probably too late to do that “52 books  in 52 weeks” you promised, you can maybe still get in 48 in 48 weeks?…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 107: Hardly Working

Jeff Lester

Australian, as she is spoke–from All-New X-Men #1, by Brian Bendis and Stuart Immonen So, I am loathe to admit it…but I totally did that thing where I was running under the gun and so the show notes have a certain je ne sais LEAVE FIFTY THOUSAND IN THE TRASH CAN AT EAST ENTRANCE OF CENTRAL PARK OR SHE IS DEAD quality to them. Nonetheless, after the jump: show notes!

Wait, What? Ep. 104: Zero Point Now

Jeff Lester

John Byrne really, uh, bringing it in Alpha Flight #6 Yeah, that’s….mmm, boy!  Good ol’ John Byrne, amirite? Anyhoo… the adventure that are the shownotes for our podcast: right behind the jump!

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!

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. 83: As Good As A Feast

Jeff Lester

Hoo boy.  Did not think I was going to make this particular deadline.  I won’t bore you with the blah-blah-blahs, but let’s just say: papa needs a new microphone and he needs one bad.  I apologize in advance for all the not-especially-discreet cracking and popping going on at various points in the background of this.  We are maybe two weeks away from a solution to both it and the mild echo chamber effect that’s afflicted us ever since Graeme managed to transcend this corporeal realm. Buttttttttt, anywayyyyyyy… Gotta keep this short and snappy so lemme just say this:  Wait, What? Ep. 83 is two hours and twenty-seven minutes long, and Graeme and I do not spend all that time trying…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 80: Bats and Birds

Jeff Lester

Apologies to those of you already pestered with this image on Twitter:  I thought it was worth a re-use, in no small part because I must once again plead mentis mortis (I have no doubt I’m handling this dead language so poorly, a charge of necrophilia could well be leveled), thanks to how late it is that I’m composing this and where I’m at for a variety of reasons that will probably become clear once you hear Wait, What? 81 next week.  (Hint: it’s a terrifying topic Graeme and I have tackled before.) But enough of that for now, there’s a podcast to be had!  Wait, What? Ep. 80, in fact, a done-in-one of approximately two hours and twenty-five minutes…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 58.1: The Minor Fall, The Major Lift

Jeff Lester

[Stellar fixed image courtesy of Ron Salas] Uh, yes.  I am running sorrowfully late again, so I’ll have to kinda dash through all this verbal hubbub and let you know the who’s who and the what’s what: Basically? It’s Wait, What? Ep. 58.1.  It’s a little less than an hour.  In it, Graeme and I not only discuss new DC 52 titles like Blue Beetle, Catwoman, Red Hood & The Outlaws (which I called “Red Hood & The Outsiders” which makes more sense but it a mistake), Batman, and Wonder Woman (and more), but also Chester Brown’s Paying for It and initial “sweet jeebis, is it pretty!” pre-review impressions of Craig Thompson’s habibi. Oh, and there are lots of shrieks…  Read More…
