This week on View from the Gutters, our topic work is Loaded Bible, Book 1: The Jesus vs. Vampires Gospels, by Tim Seeley. Published from 2006-2008, Loaded Bible is the story of the second coming of Jesus (sort of) in the post-apocalyptic ruins of the United States. It follows his adventures as he fights vampires, conflicts with the church, and tries to figure out his place both as a savior and a man.

Loaded Bible is a crazy fun trip, with incredible designs and a classic B-movie style. It’s our second work by Tim Seeley in recent weeks (you can check out our previous episode on Revival). The two works represent an interesting contrast, especially as Seeley worked with Mike Norton on both books.

In our recommendation section our hosts nominated Todd: The Ugliest Kid on Earth, Kingdom Come, Enemy Ace: War in Heaven, and God Hates Astronauts for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Kingdom Come.

Our hosts for this episode were Andrew Chard, Matt McGinnis, Tobiah Panshin, and Cade Reynolds.

This week on View from the Gutters, our topic work is Revival, by Tim Seeley and Mike Norton:

For one day in rural central Wisconsin, the dead came back to life. Now it’s up to Officer Dana Cypress to deal with the media scrutiny, religious zealots, and government quarantine that has come with them. In a town where the living have to learn to deal with those who are supposed to be dead, Officer Cypress must solve a brutal murder, and everyone, alive or undead, is a suspect.

Revival is an excellent entry into the emerging genre of small-town supernatural horror stories, and contains more twists and reveals that readers might expect on first read.

In our recommendation section our hosts nominated The Authority, Vol. 1, Daredevil: Born Again, Suburban Glamour, Batman: The Long Halloween, Godzilla: The Half-Century War for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is The Authority, Vol. 1.

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