“Not Unless He Had Three Legs.” COMICS! Sometimes It’s Nice To Have A Change Of Scenery!

John Kane

In which Judge Dredd is a right gadabout and doesn’t even have the decency to send a postcard. !!BONUS MAP OF THE MEGA-TERRITORIES!! JUDGE DREDD: GULAG by Charlie Adlard Anyway, this…

Wait, What? Ep. 146: Two:One

Man. the stuff you could buy out of the back of comics. Hey, everyone!  We’re back with another  podcast.  You should download it and listen to it really loud while you watch the last episode of True Detective!  (Why? I don’t know.  It would make the experience more cinematic, maybe?  I mean, I suppose I could’ve taken the time to craft some outrageously satisfying joke about, uh, hmm, see, now you know the problem I’m having with that one and really the joke — even if I could craft one, which it is now clear I couldn’t  — would’ve only really truly been funny for a brief period of time, whereas failure is enduring and therefore timeless and therefore ever-timely…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 131: Linkpocalypse

Motofumi Kobayashi’s Cat Shit One: Another great reason to love comics. Yes, okay! As always, I have nothing clever to say in this space, but unlike always, I’m not going to waste your time saying it. I’ve got show notes with images! Links! Prizes! (There are no prizes!) Torrid confessions! (There probably will not be any torrid confessions.) After the jump: Show Note Machine…Go!

Wait, What? Ep. 101: Little Shavers

Kirby. Kubrick. 2001. 2001 for Episode 101?  I don’t think it’s deliberate, but knowing Mr. McMillan, I wouldn’t entirely rule it out either. After the jump:  Welcome to a new age of… Show notes!

The train keeps rolling: Hibbs’ 4/11

Christ the truck with the NEXT batch of comics will be here in just an hour or two, I best get started writing….

Wait, What? Ep. 71: Funk, Soul, Brother

Yep, a bit of a delay but here we are, more or less as promised: Wait, What? Ep. 71, featuring our new theme song courtesy of the hyper-talented Graeme McMillan. This done-in-one episode is not quite two hours and forty-five minutes and covers, um, lots of stuff. Stuff like OMAC and the other cancelled new52 titles; the current state of George Perez’s career and what Marvel’s marketing team could do with it; Mark Millar’s Trouble and Spider-Man; comments by Charles Vess and Ariel Olivetti about Marvel; Mark Waid’s Amazing Spider-Man/Daredevil crossover, Jason Aaron’s Wolverine and the X-Men as well as Wolverine #300. Plus, a lot of babbling from Jeff about PunisherMAX #21; a debate how many “good” issues a creator…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 68.1: Grist for the Mill(ar)

This one had the best of intentions but somehow ended up being more of the accident-at-the-mousetrap-factory variety. Graeme and I started with the idea of doing a year in review podcast and it morphed, as our conversations usually do, into a verbal catalogue of compulsion and fixation. Oh sure, we start covering events from 2011 like DC’s New 52, day and date digital, but ends up being more about the paintings of Sharon Moody (erroneously called Shannon Moody by me for the whole damn podcast!), Christmas with the Swamp Thing and a long analysis of the year’s crossover events through the only lens that matters–that of Mark Millar. But my system crashes partway through the conversation (which you’ll be lucky…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 61.2: Fat Kid Loves Cake

And here we are with part 2, just as promised: McMillan! Lester! Cassard! Acero! Questions! Answers! More after the jump!

Wait, What? Ep. 53.2: In The Case of Jibber v. Jabber

Yes, and but so here’s part 2 of Ep. 53, wherein Graeme and I talk at semi-absurd length about The Trial of The Flash (for which I wanted to gank a great picture off Google but couldn’t find anything that really grabbed me), Mark Millar’s run on Ultimate X-Men, Ultimate Fallout #6, Wonder Woman: Retroactive, a troubling trend with Diamond’s distribution, and a few other topics. If it’s not on iTunes yet, it should be! But you can also listen to it here as the mood suits you: Wait, What? Ep. 53.2: In The Case of Jibber v. Jabber Also, as previously mentioned, we have an email address, waitwhatpodcast[AT]gmail.com, and we heartily invite you to send us news, gossip, or…  Read More…

Brube in da house, and more of Hibbs’ blabbing

It was a painfully slow day at the ol’ CE today — there were points I expected tumbleweeds to start rolling through. Thankfully, things were deeply enlivened when Evil Ed Brubaker did the surprise pop-in around 3 PM, which nicely helped us kill 3 hours, hooray! Ed, once a long time ago, lived in San Francisco, and was a CE customer. Back in the days before he became a Corporate Sell-Out, Working For The Man, Ed used to come around and be a Little Black Rain Cloud, always moaning about how much the comics business sucked, and how he got no respect, and yadda yadda. Don’t get me wrong, we loved it, because, yeah the comics business can and does…  Read More…

Slowly, I turned….

I’m utterly dead after today’s day of work — not only did I have to get through the new books, but the photocopy of the new PREVIEWS (the “blackline”) appeared today, so I had to power through that, deciding on what to list and what not on our next sub form so I could get it to Graeme so G knows WHAT to discuss in the new ONOMATOPOEIA. Speaking of Graeme, since I know he’s not likely to link-blog this one, but check out This thread on Millar World, where Millar evidentially decides Graeme is an internet stalker of some kind. I love this bit: “I think he’s Scottish, though I’ve never actually met him, but the people who have…  Read More…

Books of 8/11

Yeah, yeah, I know, I left the comics hanging. But, somehow this week, even *I* didn’t care what I thought of AQUAMAN and EMMA FROST and SOULFIRE. So I’m going to skip the rest of the comics. On to the books to clear the table for the 8/18 comics. NEW X-MEN V 3 HC: The last big Grant Morrison book, all pretty and larger, and all in all a great deal. ESPER UNDERTOW: I fondly remembered this story, but it didn’t hold up nearly as well as I recalled. It’s almost kinda quaint. Still, I’m keeping my copy. SUPERMAN ADVENTURES v1 & 2 DIGEST: Mark Millar’s Superman stories. Some are good, others are great, though I don’t like the format…  Read More…

Some more from 8/11

INVINCIBLE #14: Top notch super-fun here — I really liked the teleport gag. A few captions are pretty radically overwritten, but, ah, so what? Very Good IRON MAN #432: Ah. Add another Dead Girlfriend in the Fridge to the list, Gail. This is taking the easy path to drama, but at least no one got raped…. Eh SPIDER-MAN #5: Nice Frank Cho art, but, blech I don’t like Millar’s characterizations of anyone here. Why is MJ calling Felicia “Babe”? Or insisting she’s an idiot over and over again? “This is supposed to be the HOBBY”? No, sir, I don’t like this. I don’t want “gritty” Spider-Man! Awful. I mentioned the other day that people should pick up BIRTH OF A…  Read More…
