“I Think Guys Don’t Know These Things.” COMICS! Sometimes I May Be Slow To Praise But When I Praise It Comes Like The Rains!

John Kane

Sometimes people stop me in the street and ask me to stop following them what the best monthly periodical genre comic currently on the stands is. And I tell them, all these people who I’m pretending constantly stop me in the street and ask that question, that the best monthly periodical genre comic currently on the stands is STRAY BULLETS. I haven’t said that before on here because, honestly, I didn’t think it needed saying. It seems I thought wrong. So no blame, no shame and let’s don our knuckle dusters, knuckle down and rectify this shabby state of affairs right damn now. Also, I tell you how to get CHEAP COMICS!!! Yeah, thought you’d like that. Anyway, this…

“…Workers Killing Each Other In The Name Of Some Plutocrat’s Lies.” COMICS! Sometimes They Come Back!

John Kane

My Internet is back up! Got no time for smalltalk. Who knows how long this window of technical opportunity will stay open? So, hello, my name’s John and I wrote too many words about two comics and I hope you have fun. A boy can hope, right? So, let the merrymaking commence! Anyway, this…

PEOPLE! Sometimes He’s Not Here To Blow Out His 96 Candles But We Lit ‘em Anyway!

John Kane

Ninety six years ago on this date Jacob Kurtzberg (1917 – 1994) was born. Life may harry me and life may hurry me but I will always find time to celebrate the birth of the man who became Jack Kirby; the man who became a King! The King of COMICS!!! Anyway, this…

“spilf!” Comics! Sometimes They Are Probably Not Everybody’s Cup of Tea!

John Kane

And now, as demanded by literally nobody at all, I look at BLACK KISS 2 by Howard Victor Chaykin. No, no need to thank me. Your smiles are reward enough. Of course you’ll only be clicking on MORE! if you are Over 18 years of age. I can trust you, can’t I? Anyway, this…

“Decency.” COMICS! Sometimes They Do Not Bring Me Out In Hives!

John Kane

Look, we all know that last time John read some comics released this century it all got a bit hairy. John would like to point out that this was not out of malice, low blood sugar, jealousy, his piles flaring up or sunspot activity. No, difficult as it may be to believe, John maintains it was the result of those comics not actually being all that good. Think of it as being a bit like John was showing you that sometimes he and Comics would argue but it didn’t mean they didn’t love each other any less and it certainly wasn’t your fault. John can see why Doctor Doom talks like this – it’s fun. Anyway, this… Due to the lack…  Read More…

“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…

“Any retailer who doesn’t know how to order a comic by issue #7 is bad at thier job”

Brian Hibbs

(Which I must have read 10 times in the last 2 days, from 10 different people) OK, so let’s talk about how one might need more copies by issue #7 (for crying out loud!), using some Actual Numbers.

[*ding*] Image Comics has LEVELED UP!

Brian Hibbs

So I didn’t really say anything here on the first part of the SAGA no-reprint saga, but Rich Johnston got TWO stories out of it, the second of which of which quotes me, and I somehow don’t think there’s going to be a “retailers respond to the GOOD news” post over there (since Rich is, let’s face it, a muck raker), so let me take what space that I can to publicly give some props to Eric Stephenson and Image comics for not only listening to their retail partners, not only for totally accepting the blame, but for then finding an entirely inspired solution to just how to use a carrot to get MORE copies of SAGA into the retail…  Read More…

“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!

“Guh, UH. Huh, HUH.” COMICS! Sometimes They Are Unseemly!

John Kane

So, Howard Victor Chaykin returned to his successful BLACK KISS creation and penned a sequel. What could possibly go wrong!?! (SPOILER: I liked it.)

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!)

“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:

Wait, What? Ep. 84: Q and A DNA Q

Jeff Lester

First off, our new graphic is courtesy of the incredibly talented Adam P. Knave (who on top of all the other things he does and does well, has added podcaster to the mix. Go check out The Glory, The Glory, why don’t you?) and our old dashed-off scattershot introductions to the podcast, courtesy of me who has once again managed to land himself behind a scheduling eightball. But!  That doesn’t mean we didn’t attend to our duties, as far as answering your questions go.  On the contrary, Episode 84 of Wait, What? is our first hour and forty five minute foray into the savage wilds of your inquiries.  Among the ground covered by Graeme McMillan and me:  our recommendations for…  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).

“Now, Tanned, Rested, Ready And Fully Equipped With Brazilians…” Comics! Sometimes They Are Kind of New(ish)!

John Kane

A couple of posts down from this rubbish there is a quite extraordinary thing occurring. People are discussing Digital comics and no one has been killed! It’s a Christmas miracle, by Jove! Why not go have a looksee, this rot isn’t going anywhere.

CE21: Awesome Goodie Bags!

Brian Hibbs

Sorry for the radio silence last week — I was in Memphis for the annual ComicsPRO meeting (Which was ASTONISHING, but more on that later), and from Tuesday to Saturday I had, maybe, a total of 8 hours sleep. I don’t like to broadcast being out of town before I go, security and all that… I’m sort of caught up on sleep (kinda), but next comes my crazy week while I get everything done for THIS SATURDAY’S 21st anniversary party for the store, so don’t really expect any reviews from me this week, either. I hope to see as many of you as possible this Saturday, starting at 8 PM, there’s no doubt in my mind that this will be…  Read More…
