...this week's huge waste of time...
GRAHAMTAGONISM!!

Your online hosts W. DAL BUSH and PATRICK BROWER present the dumbest episode yet!  You should probably just skip it this week.

   

W. DAL: Hello?

PATRICK: Hello. Today we present to you a very special Grahamtagonism, in which W. Dal and I discuss our recent trip to Burbank, CA where we were guests at a very exclusive sneak preview of X-Men: The Last Stand. Dal, what was your favorite part of the movie?

W. DAL: For me, it was the point where Professor X tells Magneto that "The line must be drawn HERE! THIS FAR! NO FURTHER!" Seriously, chills.

PATRICK: Uh huh. Interesting. Let me follow with a question on everybody’s lips today; what happened to you yesterday?

W. DAL: Hey, look at the time. GRAHAMTAGONISM don't care about that jibber-jabber. What'd you think of this week's 52?

PATRICK: I see, so you ARE actively anticipating the coming reunion of D-Generation X?

W. DAL: I... what? What are you talking about?

PATRICK: But what about Michael and Walt? What happens to them?

W. DAL: I'd tell you, but then John Robinson and his wife would have to kill me.

PATRICK: Only if Superchunk tours this fall, which we both know is doubtful...

W. DAL: Am I missing some responses? What are you talking about?

PATRICK: Let's see... movies, TV, music, wrestling,  personal life... what's left? Oh, that's right... comics.

W. DAL: Jesus, finally. YOU ARE SIX TYPES OF CRAZY TODAY!

PATRICK: Just covering all the bases here. That's how thorough we are with Grahamtagonism.

PATRICK: Um, what are the six types?


W. DAL: Let's see... movies, TV, music, personal life, liquid and solid.

PATRICK: None of your poopy-cock! Jibber-jabber!!

PATRICK: Speaking of Jesus, let's talk some Loaded Bible!


W. DAL: Oh, sweet fightin' Christ, let's. It was awesome!

PATRICK: Seriously fun-filled. I'm no big fan of post-apocalyptic futures, but this version of the former-present was one I will actively go about ensuring.

PATRICK: And not just for the naked vampire girlies.


W. DAL: But be fair, that didn't hurt. This one reminded me a lot of Invincible, which overcomes the clichéd premise by committing so completely that you get sucked in. It's a book that takes itself seriously, but still has a sense of humor about the concept. A fine line, but the Seeleys, Kirkman and Bellegarde walk it well.

PATRICK: So well in fact that I'm proud to announce a sequel already in the works! Actually, I don't know why I'm so proud; I have nothing to do with it. We had the world-famous Mr. Tim Seeley out at the Chicago Loop store for a signing on Wednesday and his presence caused us to sell every last copy of the book. And I ordered a ton to have in stock for a while.

W. DAL: Oh, well aren't we fancy. "I'm Patrick Brower and I had Tim Seeley in for a signing!" "I sold out of his new book!" "Leprechauns carry me to work everyday on a unicorn-skin rug!" NO ONE'S IMPRESSED, BROWER!

PATRICK: Yer Mom was impressed last night.

W. DAL: Well, she's easily impressed. You've met Jimmy.

PATRICK: Oh, SUPER BURN, 2 weeks in a row!!

PATRICK: So, moving on from a good book to a baaaaaaaaaaad book, just how unnecessary was Fantastic Four: A Death In the Family?


W. DAL: More unnecessary than a Fantastic Four special that cost $4 and does nothing for the franchise. Oops! Sorry! That's actually the most unnecessary thing ever spawned by Marvel. And remember, this is the company that gave us the Captain Universe 5-week event...

PATRICK: Oh, so you have a problem with a lame, non-impacting story in a book that's more than 50% reprints?

PATRICK: Sometimes I wonder about your standards...


W. DAL: AND it's sold by Marvel with a b.s. "One of the FF will DIE!" tag. Liars! I know that beard is fake, Tom!

PATRICK: So many people thought it was an actual Civil War crossover. So many people were wrong. No one thought it would be good. Everyone was right.

W. DAL: It just reminds me of everything that was awful about Marvel circa 1993. Disgusting, unnecessary "Specials" and "Unlimiteds" that made sure that no one wanted to buy a Marvel comic for about 8 years. Remember?

PATRICK: Oh, how can I forget? I wake up vomiting some nights thinking about it, hoping it was all just a dream, yet my hands are still stained from ink and newsprint. I'm old enough to be set in my ways; how come that era didn't make you run screaming into the night?

W. DAL: I invested my youth and energy into comics and shared universes instead of education and girls, so it was already too late for me to abandon the SS Comic Book. Regrets? I've had my share...

W. DAL: But hey, wasn't Aztek worth it?


PATRICK: Financial? Yes. Just look in my basement. Time? No. I met the most important people in my life as a result of this job so it's all good. You know, like Rick, Jamie, Steve Wilson, Paula, etc.

PATRICK: Aztek WAS worth it. When is that trade coming out, DC?


W. DAL: Dude, I can't believe that the Scarlet Pat didn't make your list of shame. You guys were so close!

PATRICK: I actually was gonna put Purcell down, but there's just too many to name. *cough* *JasonNewey* *cough*

W. DAL: Alright, when this sucker starts to be a forum for more than just snide comments about comics and pop culture, it's time to wrap up. Closing thoughts?

PATRICK: Um, 4 Grahams! 

 


PATRICK: Oh, and 52 is still good.


W. DAL: Wow. Brutal. 
 
  9 Grahams for me. See you next week! Whoever you are! Maybe! Words to fill more space! Pancakes!

PATRICK: Wow, this was awful...

W. DAL: Yep. Thanks!
