...seven dals of bushery...

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.

2. 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: Dear Grahamtagonism Faithful,

Something has happened. I know you were promised guest-stars galore this week, but I’m afraid that must be pushed back a week. Something has happened to W. Dal Bush. We were all set to do our regular routine here, yet somehow, I cannot remember Dal for the past 6 months. I was under the impression that I’ve seen him weekly for the past half year but my last memory of him seems to be back in… April? And then, I found a note. This note:

To Whom It May Concern,

If you are reading this, then I am in a meeting. I’m not sure, while I write this, what caused my being in a meeting. Maybe it was a sudden event, some sort of accident. Or maybe just the result of a life lived. But it doesn’t matter. The fact is, I’m in a meeting.

But I wanted to be able to have one last opportunity to say something. I’m not certain what though. It’s hard to sum up one’s life before a meeting, to conclude something so sprawling. Not many people can, I think. Unless they’re someone like Grant Morrison, at least.

Sorry, I don’t mean to digress or anything, but MAN did you read Seven Soldiers #1? Holy hell! It’s the conclusion to a 30 PART STORY! And, while it may have taken a little while to come out (what’s eight months between friends), Sweet Camelot 3000 was it worth the wait.

Grant Morrison, across the entire Seven Soldiers epic has, I believe, written what’ll be seen years from now as his masterpiece. Yes, really. Yeah, more than Skrull Kill Krew. When read front to back, this thing was like 52… written by one guy, telling one story. People complained about the trades collecting the stories sequentially (Shining Knight 1 and 2, Zatanna 1, Guardian 1) instead of 1-4 of each series separately, but GUESS WHAT! That’s how they’re supposed to be read. It was ALWAYS one massive story, and the ending more than lives up to the promise.

JH Williams returns for the finale, matching crazy, inventive Morrison with the most diverse, beautiful and ARTISTIC work of his career. Seven Soldiers concept, the team that never meets, requires a unique approach and this is it. A variety of styles, both writing and art, make up this extra-sized issue: painted, CG, Little Nemo homages, there’s even a fully-functional CROSSWORD PUZZLE inside! Williams and Morrison made have needed a bit more time than expected, but every nanosecond shows up in these pages.

Speaking of time, mine’s pretty much up. My meeting’s about to start. Hmm. I ended up discussing Seven Soldiers a bit more than I’d have liked. Probably should have included some “last requests” style stuff. Maybe I can squeeze it in here. Please remember me well. Take good care of my TV. Tell it about me when it’s old enough, okay? I’d like Grahamtagonism to continue without me. If you can, I’d like my replacement to be an animatronic Gene Siskel. That dude reviewed movies pretty well, why not comics? If certain General Managers are too lazy to stuff a corpse with gears, however, see if you can get Scarlett Johannsen. She’s a nice bit of eye candy, plus she’s been in what, like 40 movies this year? That girl knows how to multitask. And remember: eye candy!

Don’t touch my stuff,
W. Dal Bush

“Must not all things at the last be swallowed up in meeting?” – Plato

  9 Grahams!

PATRICK: Needless to say I was a bit confused by this note. I mean, 9 Grahams? Really? Is this one of those books that no one actually understands but if you admit you don’t understand it everyone else that also doesn’t understand it but pretends they do will ridicule you for having the courage to say what they can’t? Well let me offer myself for stoning; I didn’t understand Seven Soldier #1. It sure LOOKS pretty. That JH Williams has the ability to do every Soldier in a different style and make it work. Grant Morrison also uses different styles for different Soldiers, but it loses me along the way. This whole concept was such a schizophrenic labor of love that you can’t help but be impressed by it’s scope, but you also can’t claim to know what it all means. So for all of us below the common denominator, I say
7 Grahams.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to get back to building my animatronic Scarlett Johannsen. Often Dal has really good ideas… they just need tweaking…
