This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Black Canary and Zatanna: Bloodspell, a 2014 original graphic novel by Paul Dini and Joe Quinones. The book, which takes place outside of the current New-52 continuity, features the two be-fishnetted heroines investigating a series of murders which surround a retired gang of thieves who Black Canary once befriended. It also explores the friendship between the two characters, from their unlikely first meeting, to joining the Justice League, and through to the modern day.
This is a great story, ideal for younger readers who are interested in the DC universe.
In our recommendation section our hosts nominated Catwoman, Formerly Known as the Justice League, Secret Identities, The Mask, Lady Killer, and Jem and the Holograms for discussion on our next episode, and our selected title is Catwoman, Vol. 1: Trail of the Catwoman, and Vol. 2: No Easy Way Down, by Ed Brubaker and Darwyn Cooke.
Our hosts for this episode are Andrew Chard, Tobiah Panshin, Brant Gillihan-Eddy, Kayleigh Fleeman, Kit Deforge, and Cade Reynolds.
