...book books or comic books?...
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
3. a weekly on-line comic book review column by
DAL BUSH and
PATRICK BROWER in which their opinions take
precedence over yours.
PATRICK: Can you smell that, W. Dal?
The smell of fresh baking comics ready for holiday consumption! What better than
a glistening copy of Punisher War Journal #1 glazed to perfection waiting to be
devoured? Mmmmmm, taste that Jack of Fables #5! I am thankful that comics are
good food. Say, what are YOU thankful for DDB?
W. DAL: As always, I'm thankful
that not EVERY book I love is getting cancelled. So, for maybe the last
Thanksgiving, I'm thankful I can look forward to new issues of: Spider-Man Loves
Mary Jane, a Power Pack series, Moon Knight, Nextwave, Punisher MAX, Astonishing
X-Men, Fables, Y The Last Man, All-Star Superman, Checkmate, Shadowpact, Fell,
Local, and Manifest Eternity. Oh wait, that one did get cancelled. Well, thanks
for nothing then.
PATRICK: Y’know, in keeping with the gluttony of the holiday, we always
exclude everyone else here at Graham Crackers Comics when it comes to these here
Grahamtagonisms, and I know it’s because our opinions are the only ones that
matter and no one REALLY cares what Jimmy would have to say about anything, but
let’s do the opposite and open the floodgates to see what our retail brethren
are happy about this year!
RYAN (Chicago Loop): I’m thankful that Ultimate
Wolverine vs. Hulk #3 is finally cancelled, to be re-solicited after issues 4, 5
and 6 are completed. I’ll be even more thankful when people STOP ASKING ABOUT
ANDY (Chicago Loop): I’m thankful that the Ultimate Clone Saga is almost
over with in Ultimate Spider-Man! I’m also thankful that Illinois has raised
minimum wage to $7 so now I’m underpaid by $3 an hour! Wait a minute…
GRONK (Chicago Loop): I tried to think of something witty, but I choose
honesty over hilarity; I’m thankful for Darwyn Cooke.
FALLON (Chicago Loop): I’m thankful Matt Streets left the country for
this Thanksgiving Holiday, giving the TRUE employees room to get REAL work done.
MIKE (St. Charles): I’m thankful for DC’s “Showcase Presents” line.
Unknown Soldier! Haunted Tank!
MATT A. (St. Charles): I’m thankful for the Superman Confidential team of
Darwyn Cook and Tim Sale.
EARL (Bolingbrook): I’m thankful that Rob Liefeld isn’t twins!
RICK (DeKalb): I’m very thankful for the Olivier Coipel sketch of Thor in
JIMMY (Wheaton): Jimmy is thankful for… porn comics!
TOM (Lincoln Park): I am sooo thankful for them Suicide Girls!
JAMES (Lincoln Park): I’m thankful I have a job working so closely with
JIM (Plainfield): I’m thankful to all the Plainfield customers… both of
JOHN E. (GrahamCrackers.com): I’m thankful for good comic book role
models for kids. Like John Constantine.
DAN S. (GrahamCrackers.com): I’m thankful I have a freakin’ job!
BRIAN (Downers Grove): I’m thankful that if Brian K. Vaughn HAS to leave
“Runaways” at least they got a talent like Joss Whedon to take over for him.
CHRIS (Downers Grove/Naperville): I’m thankful for Alex Ross, but only
today, because I feel like it’s a nice thing to do. ‘Tis the season?
PATRICK: Bah! Enough sharing with fellow employees! What are comic book
professionals thankful for?
SKOTTIE (Spider-Clan/New Warriors) YOUNG: Chris
Bachalo, baby! I'm thankful to be inspired by so many talented artists!
MIKE (All-New Atom/Runaways) NORTON: I'm thankful to
earn my living drawing comics and that I get to work with so many wonderfully
skilled people. And for good cell phone reception.
TIM (Hack Slash/Forgotten Realms) SEELEY: I’m thankful
for limited edition comic book covers so I can still make a living, and for all
the cool people who work in comics in Chicago that I get to hangout with.
CHRIS (Wasteland) MITTEN: I'm thankful for the
concepts of sleep and relaxation, though I have as yet been unable to put either
into practice. It's just nice to know they're there.
LUKE (Fangirl/So Spooky) SMARTO: I'm thankful for Mike Mayhew She-Hulk
covers because, A) I always wanted to know what Czech uber-babe Veronika
Zeminova would look like with green-colored skin and hair, and B) Hating's fun,
JAMES (STUN Podcast/Q101) VANOSDOL: I'm thankful for all-consuming,
company-wide, crossovers that strangle the creative life out of the big two
universes! And that JSA is coming back...
W. DAL: Wow! I'm additionally
so thankful that Pat went to the trouble of getting everyone else involved in
this week's Grahamtagonism. While that means you didn't get an all-new review
from the two of us, be thankful for this: you didn't get an all-new review from
the two of us. And not to ruin the surprise, but you're likely to see something
similar for Christmas. But before that, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. As
Luke Cage famously said in Heroes For Hire #86 "Enjoy your turkey, turkeys!"
Look it up! (NOTE: Don't look it up.)
PATRICK: And lastly, as Dal says above, I am extremely thankful I got out
of having to write another Grahamtagonism column. I’m also thankful for the idea
I now have for a New Year’s column…
