We’re going to be attending Emerald City Comic Con this weekend in Seattle, and we’d love to say hello to any of you that are attending as well. To that end we’re going to be hanging out in the atrium lobby on the 4th floor from about 2-2:30pm on Saturday. That’s the big glass area by where they sell all the merch, and cosplayers tend to hang out.

Chard, Joe, Tobiah, and Kayleigh should all be there (unfortunately Brant and Cade aren’t attending the con). So stop by and give us a high-five so we don’t just feel like a bunch of dweebs. We’ll also be tweeting and throwing some pictures up on Facebook, internet permitting, so keep an eye there all this weekend for updates. Hopefully we’ll see some of you there.

You may have noticed that the podcast was a little late getting out the past couple of weeks. This has been due to Andrew Chard—who edits the episodes after we record them—starting a new day-job, which threw his schedule into disarray. Between that and the constant struggle to get both View from the Gutters and Top of the Stack out on Wednesday, we’ve decided it’s best to move the release day.

So effective this week View from the Gutters is going to be moving back to Fridays. This way we hopefully won’t have more delays, and if we can get the episodes prepped ahead of time we may even be able to nail a consistent time of day to release. Thanks for listening everybody, and we’ll see you back here on Friday.

Our Patreon page is now fully operational, so if you are interested in supporting View from the Gutters please click that link to do so, or the link on our handy menu bar. We’ve tried to offer some patron rewards that you’ll like, but of course whether you donate or not all of our episodes are going to continue to come out as normal. So thank you for listening, and hopefully this will help us continue to make View from the Gutters for years to come.

Hi everyone, and thanks for filling out our survey. Unfortunately the survey platform we were going to use broke at the last minute (oops!), so we’ve had to move it over to another location at the last minute.

This messed up a couple of questions, but we still want to hear from you! So please fill out the survey, and then scroll down for a special thank you [If you are on mobile and/or the survey does not render correctly for you, you can go to the survey website here.] Continue Reading

Fan Art Thursday

Hey everybody! A listener of the show recently got in touch with us to share some fan-art he’d drawn of yours truly, the View from the Gutters gang. He asked if he could send some prints our way, and we said “yes, obviously, that would be hell of dope.”

The prints just arrived in the mail, and man oh man do these guys look slick. So first to Ali Jaffery, thanks buddy! We’re totally going to hang one of these bad boys up on the studio wall. Second, if any of y’all like Ali’s artwork you can check out his art blog at latenitedraw.tumblr.com. You can check out more of his cool art, and maybe even pick up a print for yourself why not.

Top of the Stack: Spider-Man 2099 #1, Spread #1

We’re changing our format for the Long Run slightly for the next episode of the series. Rather than reading an entire run of a series, we will be following the chronology of a particular character: Stephanie Brown.

Unfortunately due to the age of the material portions of it has never been collected in trades or are out of print. Many of these issues are available digitally through Comixology. I have tried to provide links where possible to the older material. We apologize deeply to any of our listeners who have difficulty reading along with us on this one.
