graham-tag-o-nism / gram-TAG-uh-niz-uhm
1. an active hostility or opposition, in regards to comic book reviews, between unfriendly or conflicting employees of Graham Crackers Comics.
a relationship between two species of simultaneous reviews in which the individuals of each opinion adversely affect the other, as in competition.
3. a weekly on-line comic book review column by
W. DAL BUSH and PATRICK BROWER in which their opinions take precedence over yours.

PATRICK: Hey there Grahamtagonist loyalists, apparently my jaunt thru time last week had actual ramifications for the Graham Crackers timeline! It seems my former college, W. Dal Bush, is displaced from the time stream and thus unavailable for this week’s festivities. So join me in welcoming this week’s guest-host, JIMMY P.S. HAYES!

JIMMY P.S. HAYES: Great to be here!! Man, this place is bigger than Dal makes it sound.

PATRICK BROWER: Yeah, Dal's biting wit takes up a lot of room.

JIMMY P.S. HAYES: I thought it was his head.........ZING!!

PATRICK BROWER: So Jimmy, tell the good folks what "P.S." stands for. I know if you were (NWA:TNA pro-wrestler) Raven it would be "Please Shower!"

PATRICK BROWER: Is it "Plenty of Sarcasm?"

PATRICK BROWER: "Pleasingly Sexy?"

PATRICK BROWER: "Perfectly Svelte?"

JIMMY P.S. HAYES: That's it!

PATRICK BROWER: Thought so. Thanks for the Hostess Pudding Pies, by the way!

PATRICK BROWER: Raven ate mine and then asked me to throw away the wrapper for him (true story but substitute 'ice cream' for 'pudding pie.').

JIMMY P.S. HAYES: I'll be handing them out at Free Comic Book Day next year-everyone should have them!!

PATRICK BROWER: Here's something else everyone should have, or at least have read, X-Factor #10. Didja read it?

JIMMY P.S. HAYES: I did! Man, what a great comic!! I think Peter David feels bad for Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, and he's making up with this book!

PATRICK BROWER: Heh. So many people jumped on the X-Factor bandwagon for the 2 Civil War crossover issued by I'm afraid many of them will be jumping right off now that it's crossed-over. And that would be a mistake on their part.

JIMMY P.S. HAYES: TOTALLY!!!!! They should stay on as this book keeps getting better and better. He blindsided me with that ending!

PATRICK BROWER: First of all we learn the REAL reason Jamie Madrox is called the Multiple Man...

JIMMY P.S. HAYES: Funny, I heard that Paula is really into X-Factor now.

PATRICK BROWER: Oh, damn... do I have to stop reading this comic?

PATRICK BROWER: Secondly we get the historic back-story of the main 'villain' of the first major story arc (even though Marvel already has a hardcover out of the first six ending-less issues).

PATRICK BROWER: And thirdly, as you mentioned, that out-of-freaking-nowhere ending.

JIMMY P.S. HAYES: Agreed. The whole thing was funny, exciting, thrilling, and great to look at......like Dal's Mom.....

PATRICK BROWER: "Great to look at" you say. I think that the main problem this book has, as far as keeping its audience, is the rotating artists. Ryan Sook was the original artist but left the book almost immediately. Dennis Calero, who was already filling in for the immediately late Sook, became the lead artist for a few issues. Ariel Olivetti filled-in for an issue and now we have Renato "Annihilation Silver Surfer" Arlem (with Roy Allen Martinez) filling in this month.

PATRICK BROWER: So as you see, that's many different people over the course of 10 issues. I have no idea who is the new "regular" artist, but whoever it is will most likely have the established X-Factor noir art style that everyone has had so far.

JIMMY P.S. HAYES: I would agree, constancy still counts, but at least it hasn't been chronically late like some other books *coughcivilwarcough*. It is, in my opinion, one of the only Marvel books right now that has that old school "fun" feel to it. It still has that "anything can happen" feeling.

PATRICK BROWER: Yeah, that's a really good point. Clearly Peter David has established his love of these characters over this and his prior run on X-Factor in the 90's, but this issue specifically proves that no one is safe. And I mean safe from a good story being told at their expense, not the Bendis "This is cool this month but won't matter at all by next issue" way.

JIMMY P.S. HAYES: Absolutely!! And we have to give props to Ariel David for winning a big bowling trophy!!

PATRICK BROWER: X-Factor and Nextwave Agents of H.A.T.E. are the 2 books in which the "Previously in..." pages are a must read! So yes, congratulations to Ariel David.

JIMMY P.S. HAYES: And they manage to make them entertaining too!! And for forgetful people like myself & Stan Lee-they're a lifesaver!!

PATRICK BROWER: Excelsior!  All right, I think "entertaining" says it all. What do you give X-Factor #10 on our scale of 1 to 10 Grahams?

JIMMY P.S. HAYES: I give it

  8 Grahams. If there were more scantily clad girls, it would have gotten a 9 or 10, no problem!

PATRICK BROWER: Just so long as Layla isn't one of them...

JIMMY P.S. HAYES: True!! Word!!!......I miss Harley.

PATRICK BROWER: Why, does he always duck?

JIMMY P.S. HAYES: No, he's visiting Mama Gardner in Mass. It is TOOOO quiet!!

PATRICK BROWER: SHUSH!! Um, anyway, I agree on your

  8 Grahams. Equal parts funny and shocking, this issue, while not the best jumping on point for new readers, is a more-than-adequate stay-on point after the events of the past two Civil War issues. So long as the artist merry-go-round is resolved, this book has the potential to be one of Marvel's most consistent reads.

JIMMY P.S. HAYES: As you said, I really hope that people don't bail now that the Civil War crossover is done. It's a really great book and is definitely worth your while. And, the next time Peter David comes to town and brings his daughter I challenge her to a bowl-off!!! IF she beats me, I'll buy her a pony!

PATRICK BROWER: And another Grahamtagonism is now on the history books forever--unless I screw up the time continuum again. And speaking of that, maybe next week W. Dal will re-corporate and join us, but if not... Jimmy, you're on stand-by!

JIMMY P.S. HAYES: You got it!! I won't BAIL!!!

JIMMY P.S. HAYES: That was one more for Dal!
