“Thor Has His Doubts About This One..” COMICS! Sometimes It’s Gruff In The Age of Mjolinir!

John Kane

Here’s some words about a comic with Thor in. Do with them what thou wilt. Anyway, this…

Wait, What? Ep. 116: G-Mo K-Hole

Jeff Lester

Because it is Hook Jaw, and Because it is My Heart… Yep, we are back!  Sorry for our absence from the podcasting broadcast waves and of course the Savage Critic site itself. After the jump–show notes!  But before we get there, I wanted to congratulate House to Astonish for their 100th Episode!  I’m listening to it now, and want to recommend it for people who like what Graeme and I do but would maybe like it if it was done much better?  Congrats to Al & Paul! Now, then.  Where was I?  Oh, right.

Wait, What? Ep. 112: A New Dope

Jeff Lester

Wasn’t able to find Ditko inking Kirby, but here’s Dan Clowes inking Ditko! Ganked from Robot 6 and elsewhere… Okay, and so but here is our latest episode about which I will provide you with more detail after the jump!

“Why Is That Puppet’s Bosom EXPOSED?” COMICS! Sometimes Corben Endures!

John Kane

Good morrow! It is I, the man who skipped a week without notice! I’m sure your rancour and anger have abated somewhat. If indeed they ever existed. Perhaps it was a feeling more akin to relief. As when the drowning man releases that last bubble of air and watches it rise unhurriedly to the surface through clouded but resigned and unpanicked eyes. No, my American friends, I have no idea what I’m talking about as – Christmas? Getting in the way of your free content it appears.  Anyway, this…

Wait, What? Ep. 87: Tiny Yellow Boxes

Jeff Lester

It’s funny. I keep thinking we’re going to hit our “proper” hundredth episode any minute now and we’re still only eighty-something percent of the way there. (It’s probably the high-weirdness of having 145 entries accessible on iTunes that’s throwing me off…) But we will get there! Yes, neither rain nor snow nor sleep, nor screwy Skype, nor half-maintained hardware, nor early morning airport visits, nor crazy screeds by prominent webcomic cartoonists where the phrase “we won!” really means, “stop harshing my mellow,” can keep us from our appointed rounds…unless we decide to take a week off. Whatevs: we have a two hour episode for you, full of complaints about some of the above, but also delightful discussions of Reverse Aquaman,…  Read More…

“…I’m Taking The Case.” Comics! Sometimes They Aren’t Older Than Your Grandad!

John Kane

Here’s an image from DAREDEVIL #4; a comic that isn’t talked about within. But I just really, really wanted it up there so I indulged myself. I do go on about #5 of DAREDEVIL though. Is that alright? Are you sure? Because it matters to me! Well, I can’t promise to help but I did write some words about some comics that were actually published this Century. Yay me! Oh yeah, one of the images may be NSFW, depends where you work, I guess?

Wait, What? Ep. 55.2: Press 1 for Yes, 2 for No

Jeff Lester

And we’re back with big finale of the podcast we recorded twice and edited twice (and, in a fine bit of “oh, ha-ha-ha, where’s my magical suicide gun?”, I had to write this entry twice because the first one got wiped out, ha-ha-ha, no really, where is it?). Included in this installment’s topics are The Trial of the Flash Showcase, Flashpoint #5, Thor: The Motion Picture, Flashpoint #5, the first volume of Bakuman, Fighting American and the Newsboy Legion, Flashpoint #5, Kid Eternity, the marketing of Schism, and the comic event that is not Fear Itself #5. This embarrassment of riches (or, alternately, embarrassment, depending on how you feel about these things) is available to you on iTunes and also…  Read More…

The Audition

Brian Hibbs

I know that I told you that I’d be the first one to punk out 0n the every-week reviews — and guess what? I was right! (But I was writing Tilting, and a very special DC-Relaunch ONOMATOPOEIA that you can actually download as a full color PDF until June 28, so I don’t know, maybe that counts?) Anyway, Jeff and I were talking about how much we like John K (UK)’s comments every week in “Shipping this week” threads, and we thought “Well, let’s give him a shot”. (Important note to everyone who constantly asks to become a Critic — this is actually how you do it. You write nd you write without any expectation of anything other than amusing…  Read More…

Geeks on Film

Brian Hibbs

I’ll get back to print in the next day or so, but I wanted to dive into a few things-on-film for a moment.   (I quite imagine there will be SPOILERS here, so be careful, kiddo!)   THOR: Saw an advance screening on Saturday morning (10 am, what an odd time for a preview screening!), and yeah, pretty decent film. My reaction could possibly be the result of low expectations — I mean, seriously, did anyone ever think there could possibly be a Thor movie based on the comic, prior to 3-5 years ago? Let alone a good one?   It largely kept my attention, and it has some astonishing design on display — I particularly liked their interpretation of…  Read More…

Thor Vs. Thor! Graeme Compares DeFalco/Frenz To Fraction/Ferry

Graeme McMillan

Let’s start 2011 off with a controversial statement: Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz’s THE MIGHTY THOR is great. No, wait, that’s not controversial enough. How about this? Comparing it to the current Matt Fraction/Pascal Ferry run only points out the latter’s flaws all the more clearly.

Getting there

Brian Hibbs

Two more posts should clear this week’s comics…. RUNAWAYS #17: Terrific issue — just about everyone seems to get what is coming to them, which is more of a relief than I can say. Very Good. BLUE MONDAY: PAINTED MOON #2: Woo hoo — 32 pages about masturbation! Fear teh pR0n! (OK, that’s only funny if you were hanging around CE on Friday night, but trust me, it was hysterical) Very Good. THE GRAY AREA #2: Solid enough, though it seems just a smidge half-baked of a premise. Lots of words too. Lots and lots. Overwhelming more than one page. And… it’s a little expensive at $3.95. Can;t work up better than an OK. THOR #83: I have a hard…  Read More…
