Wait, What? Ep. 122: Capespaces

Jeff Lester

From Bandette #4 by Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover. It’s pretty damn delightful. Hey, everyone!  Next week is a skip week!  Do you hear me? SKIP WEEK. Show notes?  Oh yes, there are certainly show notes. RIGHT AFTER THE JUMP.

Wait, What? Ep. 114: Everything We Could Stand

Jeff Lester

Jaxxon drawing by our very own renaissance man, Graeme McMillan… Skip week is over so we are back for another episode or two (we will probably skip Valentine’s Day, I am betting that right now). Before we get into it, though: look at that Jaxxon! What a great drawing of a very old, obscure Star Wars character that I dearly love! Well done, Mr. Graeme McMillan, well done.  Please email me if you want to be part of the crew that tries to peer pressure Graeme into drawing more comics… After the jump: Love! Links! Show notes!

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!

Wait, What? Ep. 100: Year Zero

Jeff Lester

(One of my favorite hundredth issue covers, by Joe Staton and Dick Giordano for DC Comics) I don’t know why, but for a moment there… I was very afraid this episode wouldn’t end up existing?  I think because, you know, you say something is a thing, as opposed to just being business as usual, and the next thing you know there’s a certain nimbus of expectation around it, even if only to yourself?  Sometimes it  seems like that kind of nimbus makes the best kind of target for capricious fate… Anyway, enough of that “and then he tore his eyes out in the fifth act!” musing, join us behind the jump for show notes and celebratory waffles, yes?

Wait, What? Ep. 87: Tiny Yellow Boxes

Jeff Lester

It’s funny. I keep thinking we’re going to hit our “proper” hundredth episode any minute now and we’re still only eighty-something percent of the way there. (It’s probably the high-weirdness of having 145 entries accessible on iTunes that’s throwing me off…) But we will get there! Yes, neither rain nor snow nor sleep, nor screwy Skype, nor half-maintained hardware, nor early morning airport visits, nor crazy screeds by prominent webcomic cartoonists where the phrase “we won!” really means, “stop harshing my mellow,” can keep us from our appointed rounds…unless we decide to take a week off. Whatevs: we have a two hour episode for you, full of complaints about some of the above, but also delightful discussions of Reverse Aquaman,…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 50.1: The Devil, We Say

Jeff Lester

Yes, here we have it–Wait, What?’s fiftieth episode, filled with talk by Graeme McMillan and Yours Truly about Daredevil #1, the Defenders relaunch, Incognito and creator expectation in comics, Jim Starlin and Jim Shooter, Alan Moore’s Captain Britain, and our usual ephemera jammed into just over an hour. And since I’ve been told that “context” is this year’s big buzzword among podcasters as the number one thing listeners would like, lemme point you toward this post by Jim Shooter in particular, and this interview with Ed Brubaker as things what might help in capturing this mythical “context” creature. (Also, it should be pointed out that, despite the title and the graphic up top we didn’t talk nearly enough about Daredevil…  Read More…

Justice is like a Hawk

Brian Hibbs

Sorry for that title, heh, just been rereading WATCHMEN again. HAWKMAN SPECIAL #1: If you had told me 10 or 15 years ago that Jim Starlin would be writing and drawing HAWKMAN, I would have probably been pretty, “Wow, that sounds AWEsome, let’s order a ton!”, but come 2008 my response was far more muted because Starlin has had a string of fairly mediocre books lately. Nothing particularly awful or anything, but neither nothing that I’ve thought was exceptional, or that sold well. It’s also marketed as a tie-in to the RANN/THANAGAR HOLY WAR mini, which isn’t selling as well as it should either. But, oddly, maybe this should have been marketed as a FINAL CRISIS book — it talks…  Read More…
