* WordSaladTitle: "House to Astonish" looks like the names of two comics were dropped in a blender. Which is precisely the case: it comes from a proposed ComicBook/AmalgamUniverse title by Creator/MarkWaid that would have combined ''ComicBook/HouseOfMystery'' and ''TalesToAstonish''.

* HypocriticalHumor: In the middle of their 2012 awards episode - in which the winners are announced by Belfast Nick Lowe, Australian GailSimone, Glaswegian Jim Lee, Received Pronunciation Creator/BrianMichaelBendis, Midlands ([[OohMeAccentsSlipping mostly]]) GeoffJohns, Cockney Frank Cho (of course), [[UpToEleven French]] Creator/AlanMoore, and Welsh StanLee - Al criticises the way Bendis writes [[Comicbook/XMen Emma Frost]], because you can't just take someone with an established accent and give them another accent at random.

* {{Cliffhanger}}: The last episode before the hiatus ends with the House catching fire. The first post-haitus episode establishes that they and the recording equipment were unharmed, but they hadn't been back.

* ClipShow: "The Handbook Tapes" during the hiatus was a one-off collection of early ''Official Handbook of the Official Handbook'' entries.
* DeadManWriting: "The Handbook Tapes" were supposedly sent to ''Wait, What?'' on 8-track, along with a letter saying "If you're reading this we are probably dead or retconned out of existence."

The podcast takes an irreverent (and UK-based) look at comics news (which invariably leads them on some strange tangents), looks through ''Previews'', reviews a few titles that the presenters think look interesting (which does not necessarily mean "good"), and concludes with ''The Official Handbook To The OfficialHandbookOfTheMarvelUniverse'', which digs up deservedly obscure characters and imagines how they might fit into the modern MarvelUniverse.

** Although this was before House To Astonish, Paul's reviews of [[SoBadItsHorrible the last few issues of Mutant X]] (an {{ComicBook/X-Factor}} spinoff series) are classic, and will leave you convinced that Plan9FromOuterSpace must've been an absolute masterpiece compared to that comic.
