WALKING DEAD: I’d never heard this before

Brian Hibbs

Obviously, this story had to have happened… it just had never happened to ME before.

All over the map: Hibbs’ 11/7

Brian Hibbs

Comics, TV, and a movie, after the jump.

Wait, What? Ep. 102: Age of Chance

Jeff Lester

From the thirteenth issue of Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, assembled by Miguel Corti. The episode–she is long! (Just a bit over two hours and forty minutes, in fact.) The show notes–they are extensive! So join me after the jump for both, and a bit more about Watchmen issue #13!

Trying to get back on track: Hibbs’ 7/4 & 7/11

Brian Hibbs

I posted the Batman Earth One review last week, so that covers my “quota”, I guess. I’m going to mix up a little of this week and last for this week’s post from me…

Wait, What? Ep. 93: Thrill Power Overboard

Jeff Lester

Above: The Chocolate Waffle, which is a liege waffle covered in dark chocolate, from The Waffle Window, Portland, OR Yup, Episode 93.  I would say more but I’m slightly overwhelmed with the amount of shite multitasking I’m currently doing (kinda dashing back and forth between two computers at opposite ends of the room at the moment, which neither makes me feel like a mad scientist or a keyboardist in Journey but just someone who is old, Internet, so terribly old). On the other hand (and behind the jump):  show notes!

Newest Tilting is up

Brian Hibbs

Coincidentally running the same day as the creator roundtable, I talk about why creator-owned comics (and Walking Dead #100 in particular) is great news for retailers. Go read, and let me know what you think!   -B

Late, but still here, Hibbs sorta is in 5/9

Brian Hibbs

Staggeringly, I’ve still barely read any comics this week, due to a confluence of many things, but maybe fewer means more in depth? Let’s see below the jump!

Wait, What? Ep. 75: Joshua Judges OMAC

Jeff Lester

[Above:  Not a deliberate shout-out, I'm sure, but we'll take what we can get, of course.] Thanks for your patience during our mild vacation! In return, we offer you Wait, What? Ep. 75, which features more than two and twenty minutes of Graeme McMillan and me “stealing the air” or “pump[ing] up the volume” or whatever it is you “kids” call it. [Thanks to Joolian for pointing out that should really read "two hours and twenty minutes," damn my eyes!] Do we talk Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and The Walking Dead? Do we, ever! Dare we discuss Gary Friedrich, Ghost Rider and Marvel? Dare, we do! Tire I of answering rhetorical questions? Frankly, yes, but I won’t let that get…  Read More…

“‘Fear Itself’? More like ‘Fuck Yourself’!” (wokka-wokka-wokka)

Brian Hibbs

Hey, look, reviews!  

Wait, What? Ep. 52.2: Jerks, Fighters, and Jus’ Folks

Jeff Lester

I admit it. I love “Our Valued Customers” even though it caters to the worst stereotypes about comic store customers. (Although I had my share of crazy people stories when I worked the counter at CE, none of them ever seemed quite as bad as what apparently walks into Mr. Tim’s store on a weekly basis — and honestly, most of the crazy people we had were “it’s San Francisco and there are mentally ill people on the streets” crazy as opposed to “I must talk to you about Spider-Man so hard spittle is always flying off my lips” crazy.) In any event, none of this is especially relevant to the conclusion to Episode 52 of our podcast, although it…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 51.2: Nothing and All

Jeff Lester

What’s that saying? “A day late and a dollar short?” The Early Bird Gets the Podcast Entry?” I don’t know…something like that. In any event, the rousing conclusion to Wait, What? Episode 51 is here with Graeme and myself talking X-Force #12, Captain America and Bucky #620, Witch Doctor #2, Walking Dead #87, Criminal: Last of the Innocent #2, Kirby Genesis #2, Dan Slott’s Spider-Man and Paul Levitz’s Legion of Super-Heroes, and — believe it or not — more. Itunes? Why yes, it’s there (or should be) but it is also very much here, ready to be listened to and perhaps even loved: Wait, What? Ep. 51.2: Nothing and All As always, we hope you enjoy it and appreciate your…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 50.2: In A Dark Woods

Jeff Lester

Picking up midway through our journey–more or less literally–it’s the conclusion to our fiftieth episode of Wait, What?! Graeme and I tackle subjects small and large, from Walking Dead to the shootings in Oslo, from Supergods to Amy Winehouse. Ambition; death; Outbreak; Haywire. It’s an unconventional wrap-up to our less-than-conventional milestone episode and in some ways is more than a little bit of a downer — we thought it would be an excellent idea to tell you now. It’s probably shown its face on iTunes or you can hold a compact mirror up to it here: Wait, What? Ep. 50.2: In A Dark Wood As always, we hope this is a thing that you enjoy even when one of us…  Read More…

“Don’t Fuck With the POS”, and other thoughts on 6/29 by Hibbs

Brian Hibbs

Retailing story first, then into some reviews…

Verse Chorus Verse: Jeff’s Capsule Reviews from 6/8

Jeff Lester

Does it bode ill for my reviews when I can’t think of a clever thing to say while convincing you to follow me behind the jump for capsule reviews?  It probably is, isn’t it?  Ah, well.  I just finished watching the screen adaptation of The Black Dahlia.  I mean, I’d heard that movie would be bad, but there were wrong casting decisions, terrible direction, and some bad mistakes in adapting Ellroy’s skeezy epic to the screen. As a quasi-fan of Brian DePalma, it’s a painful, painful movie to watch.  And I blame it for my inability to bring you a witty intro: the movie is a like a form of slow-acting toxin to the higher brain functions. Anyway, after the…  Read More…

The Reason We Read Periodical Comics

Brian Hibbs

There are two kinds of special thrills that periodical comics can bring. The first is tied to world-building, in which you get a piece of a story here, and another piece there, and eventually it adds up, building into something much larger than it’s parts — this is much of the thrill of the Marvel or DC universes, and one of the reasons that every other attempt to make a “universe” usually comes crashing down: it is nearly impossible to coordinate in that particular way, and it takes a multi-year dedication to build, with titles come out in a specific way. When you try to “erect” that kind of thing, the scaffolding is usually pretty apparent, and like a magic…  Read More…

Asshattery, and so forth: Hibbs burbles some

Brian Hibbs

Like Jeff said, you being active in some way really DOES matter — whether it is giving us a buck, or even just posting to the comments threads, it keeps us going knowing that people ARE interested. So, since like 25% of the people posting in the shipping list thread asked, let’s talk about Asshats. I like that word, because it’s really only sort of a swear — it sounds dirtier than it really is, I think, because for me it really is more about idiocy than anything else. After all, who needs a hat for one’s ass? It would quickly fall off! (Mechanical) things are the way that they are in the DM for what are usually actually very…  Read More…

Crazy baby

Brian Hibbs

I’m watching Ben today while Tzipora is off shopping — the kid is a little dynamo, trying to get into little nooks and crannies where he shouldn’t be. There’s only so much baby proofing you can do, and there’s always some place he shouldn’t be. His latest thing is to rip apart the CD collection… which is on a shelf under the TV, abotu 4 feet off the ground. Yet the little terror manages to crawl up there with no real problem. Quickly, a few more books while I’ve distracted him with some shiny keys! WALKING DEAD #9: Like I said, I need to cleanse my palate every few shitty comics. Glad I picked this one. Gripping, human story by…  Read More…
