...the most shocking episode yet of...
So there's these two guys, see?
BROWER. And they talk about a comic book you just
bought and read last week. Only, you won't know if you like it or not
until they tell you. So, get to reading!
W.DAL: Sweet Christmas in
June! Marvel wrapped up the most controversial ending imaginable in this week’s
Civil War #2, and there’s nothing to stop Patrick and myself from tearing into
that baby and feasting on the GRAHAMTAGONISM inside!
PATRICK: Nothing, that is, except spoiling the story for you. And if you
know us like we know us, you’ll know that doesn’t bother us. If you don’t know
us, SPOILER WARNING… and shame on you!
W.DAL: Indeed. They’ll get theirs. Anyhoo,
this Civil War thing. Spidey UNMASKED! Not, as one recent customer said,
“Spider-Man exposes himself”. That’s a MAX title if I ever heard one.
PATRICK: Marvel really went crazy this time. How did this sound like a
good idea to anyone? Is this just so they could bring back the “Peter Parker,
Spider-Man” title and have that be his whole name?
W.DAL: Eh. It seems crazy at first, but I’m
really warming to it. At the very least, it’s got everyone talking. That’s got
to be an indication that they’re on the right track.
PATRICK: Gwen Stacy and Norman Osborn what? Just because Spidey fans are
furious doesn’t mean that Marvel’s on to something. Otherwise, we’d be
webshooter deep in Spider-clones right now!
W.DAL: True, Marvel’s made a few missteps
with the Spider-franchise, but that doesn’t keep me from thinking that if you
want to pull a move this ballsy, you better have your plot locked down tight.
PATRICK: Gwen Stacy & Norman Osborn what? Seriously, that amount of
“missteps” Marvel’s made over the past few years reads like a list of every
single plotline they’ve done… and I’m a Spidey fan. I can’t take anymore Iron
Spider, Other, Wild Blue Yonder, Sins Past, Sins Remembered, I could literally
go on all day.
W.DAL: You don’t have to tell me. I’m the
one who called “Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane” the best Spidey book out, remember?
But, I don’t know. I guess I’m just psyched to see something so insane that,
well, it just HAS to work. Remember when Daredevil got unmasked? That turned out
to be the best DD story since Born Again, even with Bendis writing it.
PATRICK: Need I explain the differences between Daredevil and Spider-Man?
Just because a plot worked great for one character, doesn’t mean it’s a good fit
for another. If that were true, we’d be raving about Cap being a drunk and
“Thing: Born Again”. We aren’t, because that’d be dumb.
W.DAL: I don’t know. Cap being a drunk could
be awesome, in an “All-Star Batman” sort of way.
PATRICK: Regardless, there’s so much evidence of Marvel just flat-out
ruining this story (and character) that I don’t see how you couldn’t be scared.
I’ve got to think that judging this plot optimistically based on THREE PAGES OF
STORY comes off a little premature. And if anyone would know premature it’s you,
PATRICK: BURN! EAT IT, BUSH!
W.DAL: Hey, thanks for that. Well, let’s
wrap this fiasco up. I’m saying this story is going to be good. Good, you hear
me? I LOVE COMICS! Wheee!
PATRICK: And I’m convinced that, like Grahamtagonism, this Spidey
Unmasked stuff will be a fiasco, as acknowledged by Marvel as a Spider-Buggy.
That said, in honor of Spidey unmasking, I have a huge announcement. Ready?
W.DAL: Yikes. Um, sure.
PATRICK: <sound of unmasking> My name is Counter-Dal, and I’ve been
Patrick Brower since about 12 minutes ago. Any questions?
(Sweet Riveting Reveals! Counter-Dal hasn't been seen since
GRAHAMTAGONISM #0, back in the printed days! ~The Real Patrick)
W.DAL: Huh? Yeah… what?
COUNTER-DAL: Pat couldn’t make it this week, so I filled in, all
W.DAL: So… wait. Don’t I write your stuff
W.DAL: So, this just got debated by me and
COUNTER-DAL: You and Counter-you, technically. But yeah.
W.DAL: Aw, man. Did I burn myself AGAIN?
Half a page ago?
COUNTER-DAL: Yep. Nice work, genius.
W.DAL: Dang. Okay. Review’s done, shocking
surprise is done, denouement is done. Vocabulary word of the day, also done.
Let’s bring it home. I’m genuinely excited to see where Marvel goes with this.
It’s out there, they can’t take it back, now Civil War can get amazingly (no pun
8 Grahams for taking a hell of a chance.
COUNTER-DAL: See, you just said it: they can’t take it back. Much like
the atrocious “Origin”, there’s a reason why a taboo plot wasn’t touched. IT’S
BECAUSE EVERYONE KNEW BETTER! And something this big can taint a character for
years when you mess it up.
5 Grahams for wrecking Spider-Man.
W.DAL: Lame. You’ve got me so mad at myself
I don’t even know how to wrap up this week’s wrap up. BLAST YOU, DAL!
COUNTER-DAL: *tch* That ought to be your catchphrase.
W.DAL: I JUST BURNED MYSELF AGAIN! Gahh! I’m
done. Pat’ll be back next week, and this thing won’t be such a lunatic
cry-for-help. Maybe. Have fun!
