Welcome to our new Halloween bonus series, Tales from the Gutter. For the month of October we will be focusing each week on a different genre of horror/spooky comic.

This week we take a look at comics featuring monsters and the things that hunt them. To kick off this discussion, we read Afterlife with Archie by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and art by Francesco Francavilla, October Faction by Steve Niles and Damien Worm, and iZombie by Chris Roberson with art by Mike Allred with colors by Laura Allred.

Our hosts for this episode are Kayleigh Fleeman, Kirbotron 2000, Kit DeForge and Cade Reynolds. 

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Mystery Society, by Steve Niles and Fiona Staples. Published in 2010 by IDW, it is a tongue-in-cheek story about a group of paranormal investigators led by Nick Mystery and his wife Anastasia. The comic follows their adventures fighting the US government and searching for the stolen skull of Edgar Allen Poe.

In our recommendation section, our hosts nominated God Hates Astronauts, Namesake, Fearless Defenders, and Bedlam for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is God Hates Astronauts.

Our hosts for this episode are Andrew Chard, Joe Preti, Kayleigh Fleeman, and Tobiah Panshin
