From Amazon:

The greatest space adventure of all returns to Marvel! Luke Skywalker and the ragtag rebel band opposing the Galactic Empire are fresh off their biggest victory yet – the destruction of the massive Death Star. But the Empire’s not toppled yet! Join Luke, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO, R2-D2 and the rest of the Rebel Alliance as they fi ght for freedom against the evil of Darth Vader and his master, the Emperor!

Tobiah Says:

We’re back after a short (unofficial) break. Things got crazy the last month or so, but hopefully we’ll be back on track until that ancient beast, Father Christmas, rears his mighty horns and belches forth destruction upon us all. On this episode we wax lyrical about Star Wars in all its myriad forms, and kind of discuss the comic a bit around the edges.

Our hosts for this episode are Brant Gillihan-Eddy, Joe Preti, and Tobiah Panshin. On our next episode we will be reading Spider-Man: Kraven’s Last Hunt

A special thank you to our Patreon sponsors for this month: Chris Bianculli, Bryan May, Kar Fedosh, and Addison Appleby.

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Thor (2014), by Jason Aaron with art by Russell Dauterman. For this episode we read issues #1-7 and Thor Special #1. Released in the wake of Thor Odinson becoming unworthy of wielding Mjolnir during the events of Original Sin, this new series begins with a mysterious woman lifting the hammer from its resting place on the Moon.

The new Thor–whose secret identity remains a mystery as of the recording of this episode–launches on a series of adventures battling frost giants, Malekith the Accursed, and the Roxxon Corporation under the malevolent guidance of Dario Agger. Meanwhile, the old Thor–now simply called Odinson–struggles with his unworthiness and changing sense of identity, while trying to discover who is beneath Thor’s helmet.

In our recommendation section, our hosts nominated Batman: Murder/Fugative, Chew, Afterlife with Archie, JLA/Avengers, and Comeback for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is JLA/Avengers.

Our hosts for this episode are Andrew Chard, Joe Preti, Tobiah Panshin, Kayleigh Fleeman, and Brant Gillihan-Eddy.

This week on View from the Gutters, our topic work is Thor: God of Thunder, Vol. 1 & 2, by Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic. Collecting the first two arcs of the Marvel NOW relaunch of Thor, this series takes a closer look at Thor not purely as a hero, but as a god. Thor follows a mysterious trail of dead gods across time and space, learning about and confronting the mysterious godbutcher across three different times.

Beautifully illustrated by Esad Ribic, God of Thunder is one of the best Marvel NOW relaunches (a crowded field, to say the least). It addresses an element of Thor which has been long neglected, and leaves nothing on the field when it comes to showing the spectacle and grandeur of the god of thunder unleashed.

In our recommendation section our hosts nominated Loaded Bible, Book 1: The Jesus vs. Vampires Gospels, Daughters of the Dragon, Flash: Fastest Man Alive, and Justice League of America: The Tornado’s Path for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Loaded Bible, Book 1: The Jesus vs. Vampires Gospels.

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