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
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.
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.
