This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Bite Club, by Howard Chaykin, David Tischman and David Hahn. Published by Vertigo in 2005, Bite Club is a mashup of gangster drama and trashy vampire bullshit. It follows the infamous del Toro crime family???the most notorious clan of vampires on the East Coast???following the murder of the family patriarch, Eduardo del Toro.
Although brought together for the funeral, the del Toros are soon at each others’ throats as they compete to see who will lead the family, and seek to discover who is responsible for Eduardo’s murder.
In our recommendation section our hosts nominated Gunnerkrigg Court, Vol. 1; Batman & Dracula: Red Rain; Batwoman: Elegy; and Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand.
Our hosts for this episode were Andrew Chard, Joe Preti, Tobiah Panshin, and Cade Reynolds.
