This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is:
Dr. Strange: The Oath
Story by . . . . Brian K. Vaughan
Art by . . . . . . Marcos Martin, Alvaro Lopez, Willie Schubert
Letters by . . . . Javier Rodriguez
Doctor Stephen Strange embarks on the most important paranormal investigation of his career, as he sets out to solve an attempted murder – his own! And with his most trusted friend also at death’s door, Strange turns to an unexpected corner of the Marvel Universe to recruit a new ally.
Tobiah lurvs himself the Oath…but I do too. Joe is maybe not as impressed and I have some questions about certain plot elements. We do however agree that the book is B E A Utiful and a number of its half page splashes are worthy of a print to hang on the wall. We note some of the fun similarities to the now out and successful Dr. Strange MCU film and talk about whether or not this story works best stand alone or was meant as the start of a new series. We argue about kissing…which you really just have to listen to the podcast to understand.
In addition to our own conversation about this book, Tobiah sat in with Arc Reactions this week to discuss the same book.
Our hosts for this episode are Brant Gillihan-Eddy, Joe Preti, and Tobiah Panshin. On our next episode we will be reading Hellboy in Hell.
