I have no title, and I must scream! Hibbs’ 5/22/13

Brian Hibbs

Thoughts on Twelve Angry Comics from this week, below that jump

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. 95: Flop Flips

Jeff Lester

Above: Izzy’s Guac & Lox with extra red onion and sliced tomato, on an onion bagel, from Los Bagels in Arcata, CA. Oh, man.  I don’t know if you’ve ever had the above but if you do–I highly recommend it.  It’s a little pricey, but the guacamole is great and the lox are fresh.  Just a fine old dining experience. But you’re not here for the food talk, are you? (Wait…are you?)  You are here, in theory, for the latest installment of Wait, What? Ep. 95, so join me behind the jump for….show notes!

Wait, What? Ep. 89: Accidents Will Happen

Jeff Lester

Oh, I just don’t know where to begin: last episode was held up on account of spinal aggravation and this episode starts with a SNAFU of the kind that had me tearing my rich abundant hair out of my head. (Hmmm, now that I think about it? I think…maybe that was neither my hair nor head?) But that’s the kind of episode this is–the one where our minds are made up but our mouths are undone. Nonetheless, Graeme McMillan and I were committed to *finally* finishing up answering your questions (seeing as we didn’t answer them in the same month you asked them…or technically the same season) and talking stuff like Action Comics #10; superhero movies and the geek comfort…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 66: Winter Oner-Land

Jeff Lester

The image above ties into the podcast in only the most tangential of ways (we discuss Frank Springer for the merest of moments) but I had to include this image, in no small part because I’ve been enjoying Graeme’s Comics Advent Calendar over at Blog@ Newsarama so much. (And because…the Hatemonger for the Holidays?  May be even more topical now than when it was published…) So, anyhoo.  We had one of those podcasts where we only spoke for around ninety minutes and there wasn’t much of a place to cut it very neatly.  (I wasn’t crazy about doing an hour ten for part one, and thirty minutes for part two.) So this is a “oner” episode for you, with Mr….  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 61.1: Same As It Ever Was….

Jeff Lester

(And look where my hand was.) Hey, we are back! After a pleasant two week respite, Graeme McMillan and I have returned with the first installment of Wait, What? Episode 61. And as you can see, we have a nifty new piece of fanart to bring along with us, courtesy of the awesomely talented Garrett Berner (who some of us also know on Twitter as The Mighty Gar). Well, that’s all fine and good, you say, but what about the podcast?  And I am happy to report it should already be up on iTunes and making its way back into your heart, like it had never left, just like some kind of ringworm or intestinal parasite.  And in it, we…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 59.2: Nine 9 Nein

Jeff Lester

It was a tough call, deciding how to chop up Ep. 59 — it was one of those eps. where the cleanest transition between topics wasn’t very clean at all. So, really, if you’ve just listened to Ep. 59.1, you’ll handle the transition to 59.2 just fine–I literally just cut an inhalation between the end of that one and the start of this one. So maybe when I launch into my thoughts on Craig Thompson’s Habibi, you’ll get a better sense of where I’m coming from if you’ve recently finished that.  (Or maybe not.  I never know.  Embarrassingly enough, I more or less have this conversation twice–once as a speaker, and once as a listener/editor — and I still can’t…  Read More…

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. 53.2: In The Case of Jibber v. Jabber

Jeff Lester

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…

Aaaaa-ahhhh! Hesavedeveryoneofus! Graeme Gets Dastardly With The Flash

Graeme McMillan

I promise, I wasn’t really looking for a pun to start this off, but this one was unavoidable. With the sixth issue finally out a couple of weeks ago, I finally had a chance to sit down and re-read THE FLASH #1-6, only to realize that Geoff Johns let the story run away from him early on, and couldn’t quite catch up. Get it…? “Run away… from… him…”? Oh, okay; I’ll just say what I mean, then.

Awesome!

So, Ben showed me his first real signs of higher intelligence yesterday. We got him some blocks a month or so ago, and he did a lot of the “raking claw” and mostly just knocked them around the room. Which is cool, and all — he’s still a baby. But for the last week or so, everytime I’ve played with him I’ve tried patiently to show him how to stack the blocks. Didn’t really work, he mostly showed interest in knocking down the stack, flinging the blocks all over the room. This might have been because he was so excited he couldn’t control his fine movements, but I was starting to despair that he wasn’t figuring it out. Anyway, I’m…  Read More…
