No, What?: The Accidental Skip Week (Again?)

Jeff Lester

From Mad #1. Not really on-point…or is it? Hey, everyone!  For those wondering where this week’s podcast might be, I regret to inform you it will not be happening this week.  Good ol’ Graeme McMillan was game to record, despite being wiped out post-SDCC, but I unfortunately had decided to undertake a money-making scheme in my free time that ended up requiring a lot more attention and effort than I had planned.  (Who knew you had to sell so many issues of GRIT in order to get that bicycle?) Anyway, we really will be recording this week, honest, which means we really will be posting a podcast next Tuesday but we do apologize for yet another delay. See you next…  Read More…

Comicon, Comicoff: No Wait, What? This Week….

Jeff Lester

Howdy, true believers!  Those of you who heard our last podcast might’ve heard Graeme and I planning on talking Sunday to give you another up-to-the-date moment of podcasting action! That…never happened.  Unsurprisingly, Graeme was wayyyyy too busy being besieged for us to figure out a time to talk.  So although we wanted to give you two bite-size of-the-moment podcasts, you’ll have to settle for just the one.  Unless something happens otherwise, we should be talking this Thursday so watch this space next Tuesday for another installment of indefatigable blabbity-blab!

Wait, What? The Special 2013 SDCC Episode

Jeff Lester

From this month’s Megazine and kinda appropriate in many ways…. Yeah, this is as close as you’re going to get as podcasting in real time, Whatnauts — Graeme and I talked for half an hour just a few hours ago, and I decided I’d get this edited and uploaded for you to enjoy.  Super-brief show notes for a super-brief SDCC special after 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!

No Wait, What?, Ep. 129: Co-Dependent’s Day

Jeff Lester

My recent ‘winnings’ Howdy, everyone!  This is one of those “podcast notes to let you know there is no podcast” notes.  Between Graeme being busy with his new gig, and me coming home in a barrel held aloft by cheap suspenders after my vacation,  and with the Fourth of July landing right on our usual podcast time, we decided in the interest of, um, sanity, I guess, to inflict another skip week upon you. And, as long as I’m bringer of bad news that we won’t be podcasting during the week of SDCC because one of us (who is not me) will be covering The Nerd Wars, and one of us (who is me) will be hiding in a corner…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 128: Radical Cheek

Jeff Lester

Giffen doing Kirby in the amazing MOTU: Origin of Hordak one-shot. Delays, delays, delays!  Sorry for ‘em–I was out of town for a few days losing money at “The World’s Biggest Little Slot Machine Gouge.”  No complaints on that front, actually — I spent much more time lying by the pool and eating cinnamon rolls the size of my head than I did setting my money on fire and throwing it in the air (metaphorically, mind you: it only felt like that because of the speed with which it disappeared out of my hands) and had really a fine old time overall — but it did get in the way of timely posting of this, our 128th podcast and the…  Read More…

Putting the “Wait” back in “Wait, What?”

Jeff Lester

Visual in no way pertinent to the post–I just always appreciate a bit of color on the page… Hey, everyone!   Just a quick note to let you know that, although Graeme and I did record the next Wait, What? in a timely and accomplished fashion, I am currently trapped in a world I never made, a world with brutally tight slots and cinnamon rolls the size of very obese babies.   So instead of getting posted on its semi-regular Monday evening, it’ll instead probably be more like… Wednesday afternoon. The management apologizes for any inconvenience, and thanks you for your patience.

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. 126: More of Everything

Jeff Lester

Because it is Kirby and because it is…my heart. Okay, tech problems resolved! (You know, as long as you’re talking about our recording problems, and not about how everyone has basically been hacked by the government without their consent for years…) So, behind the jump, show notes for our two-hour plus installment of the Show That Cannot Say Die (Without Skype Cutting Out On It)! Oh, but before you do, make sure you check out posts by Hibbs and Smitty below — today is our semi-annual Salute to Content!

Wait, What? Ep. 125: Short Round

Jeff Lester

Caricature by Michael Corley of Vox in a Box, who clearly knows us — and our recording woes — well. Hey! It’s episode 125 and it’s, um, short. Yup, Skype problems kept us to a (what some would call reasonable) length of just under an hour. Sorry? You’re welcome? We don’t know anymore! But we are already in the process of taking steps to make sure it doesn’t happen again. After the jump: show notes! Kirby! More whingeing!

Wait, What? Ep. 124: Stare Trek

Jeff Lester

The return of Vegan Viking! Courtesy of the brilliant Gar Berner Yes, Vegan Viking (thanks to the supremely talented and kind Gar Berner) is back, and so are Graeme and I, with a close-to-two-hour episode filled with funny book kvetching and show notes right after the jump. Join us, won’t you?

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?

All Wait, No What: The Accidental Skip Week

Jeff Lester

(A modified version of the Kate’s Special Waffle, created here in San Francisco by yours truly: liege waffle, fried egg, toasted sunflower seeds, pickled peppers, and finishing salt. Very, very good.) Uhhh, ooops. This actually was not supposed to be a skip week. The plan was to have a big batch of books read and have Graeme and I dive right back in to our devil-may-care recording ways, but some family stuff came up for me last week and it just didn’t look like it was going to come together. We are really, really sorry, especially as we’ll get only one recording session under our belt just before *another* skip week as Graeme goes on vacation. Yes, this is less…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 122: Capespaces

Jeff Lester

From Bandette #4 by Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover. It’s pretty damn delightful. Hey, everyone!  Next week is a skip week!  Do you hear me? SKIP WEEK. Show notes?  Oh yes, there are certainly show notes. RIGHT AFTER THE JUMP.

Wait, What? Ep. 121: Gilded View

Jeff Lester

Erroneously called ‘Barbarian Romance’ by Jeff throughout the hours that follow. Image, I believe, by Corey Lewis for Brandon Graham; Apologies if that link is a jerk. Oh my god, it almost doesn’t matter what hour of the day or night it is, my next door neighbors WILL NOT FUCKING SHUT UP. After the jump: show notes just the way Thomas Hobbes would like ‘em: nasty, brutish and short.  (Actually, just short.)

Wait, What? Ep. 120: Beat Up

Jeff Lester

Stunner stuff from D’Israeli in Stickleback, currently appearing in 2000 A.D. Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends! (If I was Stan Lee, I’d offer a No-Prize to those of you who really get that reference…but thank goodness there is only one Stan and I’m not him.) Join me after the jump for show notes for Wait, What? Ep. 120, won’t you?  (Yes, there is one this week.  I assure you, I’m not pulling an April Fool’s Joke on you a week late…OR AM I????

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. 118: Skypenet Techpocalypse

Jeff Lester

Why, yes, Stevie Wonder performing Superstition on Sesame Street is indeed relevant to this week’s podcast, thanks for asking! After the jump, somewhat hasty show notes for our somewhat hasty episode (less than two hours?  What has happened to us?)

Wait, No. (Podcast, Interrupted)

Jeff Lester

Hey, everyone–some bad news: because Graeme was struck with food poisoning, we did not record last week…which means no podcast this week.  But, barring further catastrophe, we will be recording this week…which means you’ll have another podcast in your hands next week.  Sorry? But, hey, I’m sure you’ll find lots of stuff to do in the meantime.  I mean, it’s the Internet, right?  I mean, if you haven’t checked it out, I would point you to Abhay’s recently completed epic: Insensitive Veterinarians? Or, I dunno, I’m a little bit behind on it, but holy god is Tom Scioli going to some truly insane places with Satan’s Soldier. That’s like…if a comic line had spun off from Frank Miller’s Dark Knight…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 117: Sometimes Dead is Better

Jeff Lester

One of Annie Wu’s great covers from the interior of Hawkeye #8. Yep, it looks like this posting on Monday thing might be our new podcasting schedule for the conceivable future.  I hope it is not a problem for everyone (including Hibbs, who just posted the shipping list a few hours ago, do go check it out and comment. After the jump: our charming and trying-hard-to-be-respectable old chum–the show notes.

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.
