Wait, What? Ep. 133: Born Before ’61

Jeff Lester

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. 126: More of Everything

Jeff Lester

Because it is Kirby and because it is…my heart. Okay, tech problems resolved! (You know, as long as you’re talking about our recording problems, and not about how everyone has basically been hacked by the government without their consent for years…) So, behind the jump, show notes for our two-hour plus installment of the Show That Cannot Say Die (Without Skype Cutting Out On It)! Oh, but before you do, make sure you check out posts by Hibbs and Smitty below — today is our semi-annual Salute to Content!

Wait, What? Ep. 119: Watching You

Jeff Lester

Yup, we talk about Action Comics #18!  And I think…we even have stuff to say? Maybe, kinda? Behind the jump: show notes annotating the podcast commenting on the industry having one of its craziest weeks ever!  Action verbs! Jazz hands! Psychedelic Superman!

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. 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. 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. 73: Thicker Than Forget

Jeff Lester

We didn’t even come close. Don’t get me wrong–we certainly tried.  But give Graeme and I more than four dozen questions with an amorphous time deadline and you’re not going to get the bulk of those questions answered even with us putting in two and a half hours to get it done.  [Though we do so at the expense of Haruki Murakami's 1Q84: if you are currently reading that book, please skip over the 20-25 minute section of the podcast to avoid some ship-sinking spoilers.  (Sorry again, Luke.)] So consider this Part 1 of our answers to your questions, with Part 2 to come next week.  If we go to Part 3, I give you permission to begin hunting us…  Read More…

Cranky! Hibbs mutters about 1/25

Brian Hibbs

Cranky Cranky Cranky!

Hibbs remembers reviews, sure, faintly

Brian Hibbs

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?

Wait, What? Ep. 69: First In Twelve

Jeff Lester

It’s 2012 and it’s time for Wait, What? Ep. 69, the podcast that’s not nearly as good at replying in its comment threads as it probably should be! Graeme and I decided to do this all in one since the majority of the response we got were either indifferent to the process or preferred the longer podcasts that allow our tendencies to ramble to eventually get to some kind of point. Do you disagree? Prefer two one+ hour ‘casts to one two+ hour one? Want them even shorter? Wouldn’t mind them even longer? Let us know your thoughts either in the comments thread here or over at waitwhatpodcast AT gmail.com. And while you’re doing so, check out Episode 69, in…  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.

nu52: The First Two

Brian Hibbs

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!

Wait, What? Ep. 55.1: The Second Time as Farce

Jeff Lester

You see before you a burnt-out husk of a man. Oh, wait. You can’t see me? Whoops. But! If you could see me, you would see before you a burnt-out husk of a man. Not only did Graeme and I record two full hours of ep. 55 before learning that my computer hadn’t recorded it, not only did we then record it again, but I managed to lose several hours worth of editing so I had to do that all over as well. Maybe there’s a lesson in there to be learned about time travel, or about Flashpoint #5, or Justice League #1 (all of which we discuss in this installment, for almost an hour) but I’d like to think…  Read More…
