This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is:
Pedro and Me.
Story and Art by . . . . . . Judd Winick
Pedro and Me is an autobiographical graphic novel by Judd Winick regarding his friendship with AIDS educator Pedro Zamora after the two met while on the reality television series, The Real World: San Francisco. It was published in September 2000.
This is one of our shorter episodes, but it’s a significant work and a great introduction to the world outside of superheroes, particularly for people who are new to comic books. We also had a great conversation about DC Comics (a frequent topic in our group) which was cut from the main episode, but has been appended following the credits.
Our hosts for this episode are Brant Gillihan-Eddy, Kayleigh Fleeman, and Tobiah Panshin. On our next episode we will be reading Supreme: Blue Rose.
