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. 132: The Village, People

Jeff Lester

Jack Kirby on The Prisoner. Ahh, what could’ve been…. Howdy, Whatnauts!  The good news is: I think I fixed the recording levels for this episode so your eardrums will not bleed whenever I speak.  (Though I’ll miss feeling like Black Bolt.)  The bad news is:  I started on this kind of late and so powered on through the show notes.  They are….very, very brief. If last week’s notes were a leisurely feast, this week’s notes are a shaky handful of peanuts devoured standing up by the sink. And with that effortless bit of salesmanship out of the way, join me behind the jump!

Wait, What? Ep. 129: Idol Speculation

Jeff Lester

A nifty piece of fan art from the crazily talented Adam P. Knave. Thank you, Adam! We are back!  To do that thing to your ears that you insist you like!  (Really, you like it? Really?) After the jump — show notes!  That thing I do to your eyes that…maybe is helpful?  Even the way I do it, maybe?  Join us!

Wait, What? Ep. 127: Capers

Jeff Lester

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!

Wait, What? Ep. 123: Assault Monitors

Jeff Lester

From the amazing Kirby-written, Kirby-drawn finale to the first Super Powers miniseries. See, everyone? I don’t blow every deadline, just some of the deadlines. Anyway, we’re back (although SPOILER: we’re off next week again) with not quite two hours of Kirby talk, Ewing talk, and…three year old niece talk?  Um, I’m afraid the answer to all of those is: YES.  Join us after the jump for show notes, why don’t you?

Wait, What? Ep. 107: Hardly Working

Jeff Lester

Australian, as she is spoke–from All-New X-Men #1, by Brian Bendis and Stuart Immonen So, I am loathe to admit it…but I totally did that thing where I was running under the gun and so the show notes have a certain je ne sais LEAVE FIFTY THOUSAND IN THE TRASH CAN AT EAST ENTRANCE OF CENTRAL PARK OR SHE IS DEAD quality to them. Nonetheless, after the jump: show notes!

Wait, What? Ep. 103: Churls on Film

Jeff Lester

They had me at “Kpow!”: Gil Kane Atom slugs Gil Kane Green Lantern, from Justice League of America #200. And so it’s that time again, O Mighty Whatnauts.  Join us behind the jump for show notes and kvetching, ‘kay?

Wait, What? Ep. 85: Dashboard

Jeff Lester

Okay, then. Slight delay but none of us are quite the worse for wear, right? Unfortunately, I’m still kind of behind the gun, so lemme just block out the ep, aye? For the first fifteen minutes, charming and talented Graeme McMillan and I shun the comic book talk and instead discuss Graceland, Video Games, and TV theme songs.  Those of you who show up just for the sequential gossip should probably skip over that. But then we get on to the good stuff (at least as “good stuff” is defined and regulated by state law), talk Action #9, Earth Two #1, and Avengers Vs. X-Men #3.   And finally, we start answering more of your questions from Twitter, with topics…  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.
