...we have no idea what's going on...
How do you know what to/not to read? Each week,
your online hosts
DAL BUSH and
PATRICK BROWER give you a stack of worthless opinions about
some comics you just read. Or didn't read. Or didn't know you want to read.
Whichever. After all, without their opinions, you'd just have to
rely on your own, and no one wants that.
PATRICK: Oh no! W. Dal is on
vacation for the next three days! How ever will I do Grahamtagonism?? Quick—to
Dr.Doom’s time platform!
PATRICK: Must set it to Tuesday night… careful...
PATRICK: Made it!
PATRICK: Hey, Dal, it’s Tuesday night. You want to Grahamtagonize NOW?
W. DAL: Tch. BRING IT, GRAMPA!
W. DAL: Supergirl was AWESOME, by the way.
PATRICK: Really? Did I even grab it...? (Jumps back
to time platform)
PATRICK: Yes, yes I did.
W. DAL: This Joe Kelly kid's still got it.
W. DAL: The best issue of that series yet. Not saying much, admittedly,
W. DAL: You read anything else yet?
PATRICK: USM, 52, Flash, Astonishing, Walking Dead
W. DAL: Flash looked AMAZING this month!
W. DAL: Karl Kerschel polished that turd up something fierce!
PATRICK: Yeah, but it was still an awful read.
W. DAL: Oh, god yes. But so pretty.
PATRICK: We've never Grahamtagonized USM...
W. DAL: Ultimate Spider-Man... hmm. Good, but a bit
of a confusing placeholder. Part 3 of 6 indeed.
W. DAL: What'd you think of USM, first off?
PATRICK: While I don't believe most of it is real,
and there was no actual Spider-Man in it, I liked it. It made me go, "What the
W. DAL: Oh, totally. A great mind-****, but nothing
to last more than one story arc.
PATRICK: Sure. And how many times can we get the
"I'm gonna tell Aunt May the truth!" story only to have it not be told? Sure it
WAS told this time, but it won't stick.
W. DAL: And a cool reveal, but one so preposterous
it basically looks the reader in the face and says "Yeah, it's all a fake-out.
See you for #100!" I like my shocks to be a little less obvious, you know?
PATRICK: Fortunately for us, and I usually hate
when Chris Claremont has the characters describe the action, Aunt May was kind
enough to identify the shocking visitor. I mean I thought it was him, but it
could have been a younger, pony-tale-less Uncle Ben for all I knew.
W. DAL: Yeah but, again, when the end of last issue
had Gwen coming back, I thought, y'know, it's Bendis. He's just crazy enough to
try something like this. But this character? No. No way, not even for a second
did I think it was real.
PATRICK: It probably isn't. I do like that
calling this the clone saga seems more a reference to the 1970's Spider-Clone,
not Ben Riley.
W. DAL: Yeah, or Attack of the Clones. Remember
that one? Star Wars movie? 2002? Not very good?
PATRICK: Actually I never saw that one. I saw one
and three with you at midnight screenings, but I mercifully passed on 2.
W. DAL: Eh. It was alright, but SWEET JESUS was the
dialogue bad. Like, Even For Lucas bad.
PATRICK: (steady now, we're drifting...)
W. DAL: (Are we? Don't comic-nerds love Star Wars?
Our little nerd-hearts swoon for gaudy plastic lightsabers and insultingly bad
comics... oh, $#!t. I am drifting. Sorry.)
W. DAL: Speaking of bad... WHAT HAPPENED TO 52? Is this the book I
declared "the comic to beat" just a few months ago? Well, it got beat alright.
PATRICK: Awwww... still upset that Mary Marvel
doesn't return your emails?
PATRICK: I notice she isn't wearing white anymore, you devil, and it’s
still before Labor Day.
W. DAL: That girl's just a tease. Whatever. No, I'm
more upset about something else. After many years and many great stories (most
by Greg Rucka), DC finally got me to say this: I DON'T WANT TO READ ABOUT
MONTOYA OR THE QUESTION ANY MORE!
PATRICK: How about Montoya AS The Question? I say
that's the end of this storyline.
W. DAL: What is the point of such a large, Diverse
Cast if I've got to read about DC's Wackiest Couple every friggin' week? Pun
intended, by the by. Double pun for bonus points!
W. DAL: Zing!
PATRICK: What bonus points?
W. DAL: I... yeah, I got nothing. Thanks for
pointing that out!
PATRICK: Minus points for point-pointing-outing.
W. DAL: Outing! See, awesome!
W. DAL: It's a game we ALL can play! Thanks, DC! Anyway...
PATRICK: Say what you will about this week's 52,
next week is when it gets good again. Fraggingly good.
W. DAL: Eh. I hope so.
PATRICK: Don't worry--Rucka can't ruin EVERY issue!
W. DAL: It's hard to tell WHO's ruining it. That's
the downside of inaccurate credits - who do I blame for this issue?
PATRICK: Okay, let's play this game. I say Geoff
Johns is doing the Black Adam stuff. Greg Rucka is the Montoya/Question story.
PATRICK: Grant Morrison is Steel.
W. DAL: See, that's the obvious way to look at it,
but DC keeps saying that everyone's writing everything. So one issue Montoya's
in a Rucka scene, the next she's a Waid girl. So that's why I wish I could say
"Hey, next issue Rucka's back on the Montoya plot; should be good again."
Instead, I find out it's awful when it hits me in the face. Like this week.
PATRICK: But the basic concepts, the framework,
those aren't a joint idea. They have to originate from somewhere...
W. DAL: Well, like all ideas, they come from Jesus
Christ. Except Morrison's, those're peyote and absinthe.
PATRICK: When there's nothing left to all/The
colors that you sprayed upon it/Passing judgment on my life/You never really got
it right/I can't believe in anything/I don't believe in anything/Do you believe
in anything/Do you believe me now/Look like Jesus Christ/Act like Jesus Christ I
know.../Here's your Jesus Christ/I'm your Jesus Christ I know...
W. DAL: Someone was grabbing Besides from Sugar
from me off of Soulseek last night. Allegedly!
PATRICK: Look like Morrison/Act like Morrison I
W. DAL: The joke is I needed bandwidth for Azureus
so I booted 'em. Sorry dude! Allegedly!
W. DAL: Sweet Hairy Mike Wall let's wrap this monstrosity up. I think
we've written clear through to next week's Grahamtagonism!
W. DAL: So, grading. I'm giving this week... (BIG FAKE COMPUTER BREATH TO
SIGNIFY LONG-WINDED RESPONSE)...
W. DAL: Supergirl gets
4 Grahams sober,
7 Grahams drunk.
6 Grahams, but more if anyone else wrote it.
Attack of the Clones,
8 Grahams, still near and dear.

What's your excuse?

stolen hardware to a Latverian dictator...
