Letters by . . . . Javier Rodriguez

From Goodreads:

Doctor Stephen Strange embarks on the most important paranormal investigation of his career, as he sets out to solve an attempted murder – his own! And with his most trusted friend also at death’s door, Strange turns to an unexpected corner of the Marvel Universe to recruit a new ally.

Brant Says:

Tobiah lurvs himself the Oath…but I do too. Joe is maybe not as impressed and I have some questions about certain plot elements. We do however agree that the book is B E A Utiful and a number of its half page splashes are worthy of a print to hang on the wall. We note some of the fun similarities to the now out and successful Dr. Strange MCU film and talk about whether or not this story works best stand alone or was meant as the start of a new series. We argue about kissing…which you really just have to listen to the podcast to understand.

In addition to our own conversation about this book, Tobiah sat in with Arc Reactions this week to discuss the same book.

Our hosts for this episode are Brant Gillihan-Eddy, Joe Preti, and Tobiah Panshin. On our next episode we will be reading Hellboy in Hell

saga

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Saga, Vol. 1-3, by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples. An ongoing series, Saga is set in a galaxy consumed by a proxy war between the largest planet in the galaxy and its own moon. It is the story of Marko and Alana, two soldiers from opposite sides of that war who fall in love and run away together, pursued by agents of both sides.

Saga is by no means a war story, however. It’s a romance, and a story about the many ways that war affects our lives. It’s a beautifully illustrated comic with incredible and weird character designs, amazing set pieces, and luscious colors. There also may be a cat who will quickly become your favorite character.

In our recommendation section, our hosts nominated Federal Bureau of Physics, Vol. 1; Annihilation, Vol. 1-3; Spider-Man 2099, Vol. 1; and Judge Dredd: Case Files, Vol. 7 for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Annihiliation, Vol. 1-3.

Our hosts for this episode were Andrew Chard, Joe Preti, Tobiah Panshin, and Cade Reynolds.

privateeye

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is The Private Eye, by Marcos Martin, Brian K. Vaughan, and Muntsa Vicente. Set in a privacy obsessed future 40-some years after an event known as “the cloud burst”, The Private Eye is a weird an colorful detective story.

In this world the internet has been abandoned and forgotten, and privacy has become so de rigueur that no one leaves the house without a disguise on. It follows paparazzo-for-hire P.I., who is hired to do a background check the client themself, and—as one so often does—soon finds himself at the center of a murder-mystery dodging thugs and evading the police press.

The Private Eye is published as a digital exclusive, and is  available on a “Pay What You Want” basis (including free) at http://panelsyndicate.com/.

In our recommendation section, our hosts nominated Dr. Strange Vs. Dracula: The Montesi Formula, Hard Time, The Immortal Iron Fist, and Okko for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is The Frank Book.

Our hosts for this episode were Andrew Chard, Joe Preti, Eric Manix, Tobiah Panshin, and Cade Reynolds.
