“I Guess You Could Call It An EYEFUL SORE!” COMICS! Sometimes That Joke Isn’t Punny Anymore!

John Kane

Bit of a hybrid this time out. It’s a little bit European and a little bit American. Something for everyone! Also, Batman! Everyone loves Batman! Unfortunately it’s kind of terrible. But, wait! I’m getting ahead of myself… BATMAN: EUROPA by Parel, Camuncoli, Casali, Azzarello and Brosseau Anyway, this…

“I Was Gone For Only THREE YEARS.” COMICS! Sometimes A Bit More Thought Wouldn’t Go Amiss!

John Kane

Okay, here are some words about some (near)recent comics. I guess they are capsules, relatively speaking that is. Although, after this one some of my relatives won’t be speaking to me, particularly the Morrison branch. Anyway, this…

Wait, What? Ep. 139: Minisodes

HUH? With thanks to the always-excellent Miguel Corti. Yes, we have returned! And as always, I am late, behind, and addled. Nonetheless, join me after the jump for show notes and our latest episode, won’t you?

Wait, What? Ep. 133: Born Before ’61

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. 127: Capers

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! SUPERMAN UNCHAINED #1 Snyder / Lee DC COMICS $4.99   QUICK, TO THE JUMP FOR ———

Bustin’ on the ones — Hibbs duz 6/12/2013

ON New Comics Day? What? Well, don’t get used to it, but I felt bad about skipping last week, that I thought I’d get way ahead on this one.  Below the jump, and all.

Wait, What? Ep. 88: Starry-Eyed Cynics

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…

Wait, What? Ep. 80: Bats and Birds

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…

Hibbs remembers reviews, sure, faintly

I feel fairly awful because I really didn’t want to post anything anywhere on SOPA-protest day, but I also really really want to tell you about a comic I truly enjoyed, and since I’ve been so crappy in saying anything about any comic for the last few weeks (seriously, mid-November through to February is terrible for me because I’m so stupidly busy at the whole “owning your own retail business” thing from the holidays and year-end work), if I don’t write it today, I don’t write it at all this week. So, join me below the jump?

nu52: The First Two

So the first thing I realized last night is 13 books a week is almost too much to read in one sitting, at least not without getting a bit of a headache. Then I realized that, with what I have going to today and tomorrow (check back in a few hours, you’ll see!), that even worse there’s absolutely no way I can write up that many books either in the time I have this AM. (Plus, y’know, Diamond shorted all of my copies of STORMWATCH #1 — it is being overnighted to me on their dime, thankfully — so that wouldn’t have worked anyway) So, let’s just hit the first two, below the jump, with the rest by the weekend!

Jim Lee’s Digital visual analogy

I’m just back from Dallas, and the 2011 ComicsPRO meeting. It was a very very very good meeting — there is literally not a more productive weekend in comics on the calendar, though a lot of what happened and was discussed won’t, necessarily, interest you the consumer. I will, I think, have a much fuller report in a few weeks in  the next TILTING, but in the meantime I want to share one bit while its still fresh in my mind. A lot of time was spent on discussing Digital, as you might expect, but early on on the first day, DC co-Publisher Jim Lee made a visual analogy that sort of guided my thinking for the rest of the…  Read More…

All-WHAT?! — Hibbs continues 5/16

ALL-STAR BATMAN AND ROBIN THE BOY WONDER #5: Paul Levitz apparently thinks that DC’s publication of THE BOYS could do some theoretical harm to their core superhero business, or taint the icons, or something. This makes me wonder what Paul made of THIS. Since it is the ACTUAL icons. The strangest thing is that, had Frank Miller been drawing this, I’d probably have found it amusing and satirical and maybe even a little funny. But with Jim Lee? Lee is THE mainstream superhero comic book artist, so it adds a layer of weight and Importance to it all that just absolutely demands it be taken Seriously, and, thus, renders any satire as stone-faced earnestness. But, really, REALLY, Levitz cancelled THE…  Read More…
