* ReleasedToElsewhere: Apparently, DCComics have sent WildstormComics to live on a farm, and it's very happy there.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: Parodied. At the end of one podcast, Al announced that ''TOHOTOH'' was being retired and replaced with a new, totally original concept ... which turned out to be ''Who's Who in Who's Who in the DCUniverse''.

* 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.
