This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is The Wake by Scott Snyder with art by Sean Murphy and colors by Matt Hollingsworth. The Wake is a strange tale that mixes elements of science fiction and horror. It begins with the story of Lee Archer, a marine biologist who is approached by the Department of Homeland Security to investigate a mystery on a secret underwater oil rig. Not all is as it first appears, however, and the story slowly evolves to encompass billions of years of human history and a struggle for the future of mankind.
In our recommendation section our hosts nominated Pariah Missouri, The Brave and the Bold (Waid), The Light, Jan’s Atomic Heart, and Queen and Country for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Queen and Country, Vol. 1: Operation Broken Ground.
(Note: The original Volume 1 contains issues #1-4 . The currently in print Definitive Edition of Q&C contains the first 12 issues. This is a great value and we highly recommend picking it up, but for Episode 81 we will only be reading the first 4.)
We invite you to discuss both this episode and its topic on our subreddit.
