Wait, What? Ep. 141: Tomorrow’s Controversies Today

Jeff Lester

The Delight that was Tony Daniels’ Detective Comics. From issue #1. THANKSGIVING! CHRISTMAS! NEW YEAR’S! THE TERROR NEVER ENDS! Actually, it’s not really that bad, but all these holidays and holiday related get-togethers are keeping us very, very busy.  So!  After the show notes, please join us for two hours of desperate comics blabbity-blab and the show notes dedicated to same!

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. 109: Delightful

Jeff Lester

Two panels from Avengers #1. Captain America sounds kinda bitchy here, doesn’t he? Happy holidays!  Ho ho ho!  Uhh…. Gather Ye Rosebuds While You May! (Man, I gotta outsource the holiday sections of these entries to Graeme or something.  I am really bad at this!) Anyway, behind the jump…Show Notes!

Wait, What? Ep. 90: Back in the Game

Jeff Lester

Ladies and Gentlemen: GRAEME MCMILLAN IS. The nice thing about writing a post during which you lose your mind and decide the best thing to be done is to embed as many of the lyrics of an Elvis Costello song as you can is you realize: (a) it can’t be topped; and (b) maybe you’re allowed to go easy on yourself every now and again; and (c) your attempts to give the page a catchy image and a bit of punchy jibbety-jab really only go so far, as it’s the actual thing you are introducing that people are (or are not) here for. (Also, you realize you are addicted to parentheticals and alphabetized lists, and have no idea exactly how…  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).

Wait, What? Ep. 76: Dares, Wins

Jeff Lester

And Lo, There Shall Come…An Answering! For most of you, anyway.  I fully confess Graeme and I did punt on a few questions that were either complex enough to take up a full podcast at a later date, or so good that it would require better men than us to answer it.  (Ah, yes: the old “It’s not  you, Listener Question, it’s us” strategy–never leave home without it.) Anyway, as you might imagine with so many exceptional inquiries, it would take us a while to answer them–and of course us being us, we’re going to go egregiously off-topic, right?–so, yeah.  Two hours and forty minutes is what we’ve got for you. We talk so long Graeme turns into The Lord…  Read More…

Some small notes RE: DC (& Digital) from this year’s ComicsPRO meeting

Brian Hibbs

I’m just back from Dallas and the 2012 ComicsPRO meeting. I forgot that the laptop didn’t have any of the log-in info for the Savage Critic site, and I forgot to write it all down, so, gr to that! I have an entire Tilting column that I’m going to write which is sort of kind of “about” the meeting (but not really, since that won’t be for three more weeks, and then we’re talking about the past, which no one ever likes!), but I don’t think I’ll have any room there for any of this stuff. I wrote these all down on scraps of paper, but I did ask that I can report them… but I might have made a…  Read More…

New TILTING is up!

Brian Hibbs

At Comic Book Resources, as usual. If you can’t bear to comment there, we have this forum. I’m actually a little surprised at just how positive the CBR commentary has all been — where are the internet trolls? I guess they simply haven’t woken yet today! Anyway, go find out about DC #2s, B&N, and why Comix Experience won’t be racking AVENGING SPIDER-MAN #1. -B

nu52: wk 4: The Finaleing!

Brian Hibbs

Running low on time, and I didn’t have “clever” subcategories to go with it this week, so, here’s the final 13 books in a single post.

Wait, What? Ep. 58.2: A Set of Steak Knives

Jeff Lester

No idea. No idea. I remember I had some brilliant idea about the image to go with this episode and it’s just…gone. Thought I wrote it down and everything. Fortunately, I still feel comfortable ganking images from Mr. Tim at the amazing Our Valued Customers. In fact, this wasn’t even the image I’d planned to use but I jumped over there and thought this was brilliant enough to disseminate widely. (Man, those two words seem pervy next to one another. “Disseminate widely.” Brrrrgh.) So no, be warned, we do not talk Big Bang Theory on this latest not-quite-forty-minutes-and-therefore-is-considered-wee-by-our-standards installment of Wait, What? But Graeme and I do talk Green Lantern Corps, Birds of Prey, Daredevil #4, Witch Doctor #3, LoSH…  Read More…

nu52 – wk 3: Tradition!

Brian Hibbs

First off, curse Graeme McMillan for showing me up, and lapping me like that! Scottish Bastich! Batman, GLC, LSH, Nightwing below

New Tilting up

Brian Hibbs

Geez, forgot to link this, didn’t I? Been some crazy weeks….   http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=34535   -B

nu52 – wk 3: Girls, Girls, Girls!

Brian Hibbs

Mm-hm

nu52 – wk 3: Three that pleasently surprised me

Brian Hibbs

Remember what I said last week about sometimes the most interesting stuff in the DCU was sitting at the fringes? Yeah, that.

Wait, What? Ep. 57.2: Playing the Dozens

Jeff Lester

Behind the non-Clowesian eightball again, so this will have to be short and sweet. First? Graeme and I love you all. Awwww. (See? Sweet.) Second, the above illustration is from Uncanny X-Force #15, by the astonishingly great Jerome Opena. (I think the whole book is pretty great, because Remender is doing his best to crank things up to 11, but ooo mama that art….) Third, this installment is approximately eighty minutes long and we talk about a dozen-plus books, including Batwoman #1, Mr. Terrific #1, Legion Lost #1, Superboy #1, Uncanny X-Force #15, PunisherMAX #17, Criminal: Last of the Innocent #4, Journey Into Mystery #627, Drifting Classroom, Bakuman, and, as you’d probably expect, Fear Itself #6. Fourth, I think our review…  Read More…
