...the most shocking episode yet of...
GRAHAMTAGONISM!!

So there's these two guys, see? W. DAL BUSH and PATRICK BROWERAnd 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, right Dal?

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 incognitoish.

W.DAL: So… wait. Don’t I write your stuff too?

COUNTER-DAL: Yeah.

W.DAL: So, this just got debated by me and me?

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 intended) good.

   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!
