...not this week--there is no...
GRAHAMTAGONISM!!

...there is only...
RETAILIATION!

How do you know what to/not to read?  Each week, your online hosts W. DAL BUSH and PATRICK BROWER give you a stack of worthless opinions about a convention you just attended.  After all, without their opinions, you'd just have to rely on your own, and no one wants that.

PATRICK: Wow, WDB, let me tell you, I am SO worn out from this year's Wizard World Chicago.

PATRICK: Hobnobbing with celebrities, drinking with comic pros, seriously dude, I am so wiped out from being so damn popular! How do I do it??

W. DAL: Yeah, straight up. Next year we're making shirts that say "I Worked Wizard World And All I Got Was Tired".

W. DAL: But, like I told your mom last night, let's get this over with...

W. DAL: RETAILIATION!

PATRICK: RETAIL-IATION

W. DAL: Alright, so we were at this Wizard World show in Chicago. And this week we're bringing our respective viewpoints to the discussion: me from the floor of the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, and Pat from the floor of the Doubletree bar. Let's RETAILIATE!

PATRICK: To be fair to our sponsors, it wasn't JUST the Doubletree bar, it was Knuckles at the Hyatt, Bob Chins and a tiki bar I can't spell the name of. So much for that endorsement money.

PATRICK: Anyway, the show sucked.

  4 Grahams.

PATRICK: Wait... do we need more?

PATRICK: The mai-tais did not suck.

  8 Grahams.

W. DAL: Eh. I don't know that I've got more to give. The thing people need to realize is that a 4-day show for US is, like, 3 weeks. Plus 3 months preceding it to work out details. So we don't look at Wizard World as a fun, social event, though it definitely is. To us, it's like a war. In other words, any Wizard World you can walk away from is a good one.

PATRICK: Yeah, all the fun, fan events take place while we're working so we miss out. And it's not like we choose to work the show--every single employee in the chain has to step-up during this period. It's the single worst week of work for us every year.

PATRICK: And all the wacky, oddball stories we have are only funny to us. They're the kind of stories that are only funny because we're so damn tired.

PATRICK: Like, "Okay guys, let's get the sheets!"

W. DAL: But in the interest of making ourselves laugh again, let's give up a couple stories. You got a clean one?

PATRICK: Well, I told several people that the giant Pikachu was actually a piñata and if you whacked it with sticks candy would pop out. But my favorite story is a little bit longer...

PATRICK: In my van on the way to Bon Chins with Geoff Johns, Keith Giffen, Jann Jones and Dan DiDio. Geoff had convinced people that he and I went to high school together (we did not--I'm about a decade older than him). He said that I stole his first print copy of Dark Knight Returns #1, but felt bad about it so I took him to a comic store to buy a new one. I said that the name of the store we went to was Vanilla Wafers Comics. Keith Giffen, probably not that interested in the story to begin with and probably half listening says, "Wait, the guy from Graham Crackers took you to a store called Vanilla Wafers?" "Yeah," said Jann, "Because 'Teddy Grahams' was taken!"

W. DAL: Well, here's a quick one: Saturday morning right before the show opens, Jimmy (Hayes, Wheaton "manager") and I are hanging out in our Trade Paperback section, being tired and punchy. A guy grabs a copy of the new FF hardcover and politely asks us how much it is. Jimmy, stone-faced, looks him dead in the eye and says "Who's asking?" And the guy just stands there. In silence. Staring at Jimmy. For about two minutes. Jimmy just stands there, staring back.  Finally, after this massive, awkward space has just hung there, Jimmy smiles and says he's only kidding.  And the guy doesn't buy the book because it wasn't discounted.

PATRICK: Nice. Here's another: If you had a DC Nation pin on and Dan DiDio spotted you with it, he would say, "Hey--DC nation!" and give you a copy of a DC book or poster autographed by Grant Morrison or Mark Waid, etc. Anyway after watching him do that while I was over at our newly acquired booth on Sunday (that’s right, while you were buying comics we were buying whole booths), I decided to do it too. So everyone who came by with a DC Nation pin on got a 50¢ comic for free--but of only non-DC stuff. "Hey, DC Nation--have an Iron Man comic!" "Hey DC Nation—look, it's Scion!"

PATRICK: And one more. We were giving out helium balloons with the store logo on them. By the end of the day Sunday, John (Robinson, co-owner) started tying them to the backpacks of unsuspecting customers as they shopped at our booths. The customers would then get the feeling that they were being followed and whip around, but the balloons would move with them so they’d never see it. I mean its not like they won't know who did it when they found them, but still pretty damn funny. I wanted to tie one to Michael Turner's crutches but was told that would NOT be funny. Says who?

PATRICK: Okay kids and dedicated Grahamtagonism readers, forces beyond our control have caused W. Dal to flee from his building (really), so I'm on my own here (and not imitating him like last time) so I'll wrap this up.

PATRICK: We hope that you all had an actual good time at Wizard World and got to do all the fun stuff we never get to. As always, we work. You play. They live. See you next week as we return to our regular format for an actual comic book review! Maybe Nextwave. Or Runaways. Definitely not Deadman. And lastly, a big hello to one of our brand new fans, Ron Garney! Thanks for reading, Ron! Tell JMS to put Cap in EVERY issue of Amazing!
