Waiting For The End Of The World: Jeff Blows His Deadline

technical difficulties

Hey, Jeff here with just a quick note–the plan was to put both parts of Wait, What? up at once Tuesday morning since the two pieces are very different from one another. (Part One: Graeme and I losing our shit over Matt Fraction and Tom Breevort’s post-Fear Itself interview at Newsarama; Part Two: we pull our shit together and give you suggestions for a holiday gift list with 30+ items.)

So, yeah. I kinda blew it for a number of utterly unsurprising reasons since it’s the week before Christmas. I apologize but will put both parts 1 and 2 up in one post early Wednesday afternoon…

Just wanted to let you know.  Sorry, everyone!

  1. The snappy, punchy prose style of your blurbs always makes up for it.

  2. Man, that interview. That interview. Reading that interview leaves the kind of stain you can’t wash out of your mind.

    Oh, Jeff Lester, you know we will wait for you! As long as it takes – we will wait for you! Looking forward to some Christmas listening from Comics’ own chatty Cathys!

  3. This delay will truly be about survival, perseverance and escape. As long as I believe in the podcast, it will exist.

  4. @Dan: That’s a downright nefarious shout-out, Dan. Thank you.

    @JohnK (UK): “Comics’ own chatty Cathys”: *There’s* that marketing slogan we were looking for!

    @J_Smitty: Thanks! I am trying for snappy and punchy (though I think others might use that term in a more punch-drunk sense), so that’s great to hear.

  5. Well, I’m disappointed, I will not take this tardiness lightly and go to one of your competitors to get honest, interesting, and unique chatter about the comics industry. What? Funnybook Babylon is just a blog with occassional talk now? What/ Mindless ones doesn’t do that kind of coverage? What?

    I guess I’ll just have to wait. There’s no other podcast with your intelligent insight that publishes on a weekly basis. I always look forward to your talks because it is the conversation I wish was the standard and not the exception in comic book discussions.

    I’m glad I’ll be able to download your podcast before I go on a long Christmas Car Drive with the family through the wilds of the Georgia and Norhtern Florida. Your discussion about Fraction’s will keep me occupied while everye else in the car is asleep.

    – l.k.

  6. @gary: As you know from listening to us, we’re truly terrible with compliments, Gary, but thank you! I’ll definitely make sure both parts are posted well before you have to make that drive.

  7. Nrama: As you said in that interview five months ago, “Everybody knows in comics, Bucky stays dead.” Moving to a much more tangible issue, people have been interested to know what the plan is for collection these three issues, since they’re not in the Fear Itself hardcover —what’s in the works?

    Brevoort: I’m pretty certain that they’ll go with the individual books. I suspect that #7.1 will probably end up in the first Winter Soldier collection, because that’ll make sense; it’s the same creative team, and so forth. The Iron Man one will certainly be in an Iron Man collection; I kind of suspect it’ll be in the Fear Itself Iron Man collection. The Thor one may actually be the kick-off of the next Thor collection. Basically, we’re going to put them where they best fit the larger stories.

  8. Tim,

    I was clicking that little “like this” thumb so hard but apparently for naught.

  9. That interview is kind of great. Seldom does one get such a vivid picture of a smart man thinking through his justification for writing utter crap.

  10. I didn’t read a page of Fear Itself but I was interested in this interview with everyone talking about it. O.M.G…..that was epic. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen such contempt for a consumer base or such a misread of the market itself. And talk about arrogant…. It was a treat!

  11. Can someone link to this interview, please? Everytime I go to newsarama and search for it I end up with Fraction and Brevoort interviews DURING the series, etc.

  12. Nevermind. I see that Jeff (or Graeme) linked to it in the article above. My mistake!.
