This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is:

Kill or Be Killed, #1-12

Story by Ed Brubaker
Art by Sean Phillips and Elizabeth Breitweiser

From Image:

The darkly twisted story of a young man forced to kill bad people, and how he struggles to keep his secret as it slowly begins to ruin his life and the lives of his friends and loved ones. Both a thriller and a deconstruction of vigilantism, KILL OR BE KILLED is unlike anything this award-winning team has done before.

Tobiah Says:

We’re back after a brief delay, and we’ve got a special guest. This being us there is, of course, some wild disagreement between Joe and Tobiah about this book. So we’ve brought Kenny in tonight to play the role of Brant and valiantly hold the middle ground.

For the record, late in the episode Joe confuses Bernie Madoff with Bernie Goetz, who ironically has more in common with the star of this book than his target.

On the next episode we’ll be reading Invisible Republic, Vol. 1-3.

Our hosts for this episode are Joe Preti, Tobiah Panshin, and Kenny Wisdom.

 

Thank you to Addison Appleby, Kar Fedosh, Chris Bianculli, Shopping Mall Krampus, Jeb Korzilius, and Jeremy Ballard for sponsoring the show.

On this episode Tobiah and Frank discuss their experiences at Rose City Comic Con, which was held in Portland, Oregon on Sept. 8-10, 2017.

A brief correction: Tobiah states that he co-hosted a panel with Kate; her name is actually Sarah. He feels very ashamed of this error.

 

Our hosts for this episode are Tobiah Panshin and Frank Suttile.

Delicious in Dungeon, Vol. 1-2

Created by Ryoko Kui

From Amazon:

When young adventurer Laios and his company are attacked and soundly thrashed by a dragon deep in a dungeon, the party loses all its money and provisions…and a member! They’re eager to go back and save her, but there is just one problem: If they set out with no food or coin to speak of, they’re sure to starve on the way! But Laios comes up with a brilliant idea: “Let’s eat the monsters!” Slimes, basilisks, and even dragons…none are safe from the appetites of these dungeon-crawling gourmands!

Our hosts for this episode are Joe Preti, Tobiah Panshin, Adam Panshin, and Lucas Trerice.
