sexcrims

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is??Sex Criminals, by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky, with colors by Becka Kinzie.??It is the story of two people, Suzy and John, who independently discover that when they reach orgasm time stands still. One day they meet, they begin to date, and they discover they can enter into The Quiet (or Cumworld, depending on who you ask). Then they do the only logical thing they can, which is rob banks. Oh, and they’re not alone.

Sex Criminals is a raunchy???yet touching and human???romp with tons of humor and style. It is also the definition of??NSFW, so you have been warned.

change

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is??Change, by Ales Kot and Morgan Jeske. I’m not even going to??try??to summarize what this book is even about, so this week you’re just getting the blurb:

Dear Los Angeles: meet apocalypse. You have one day left. Unless, of course, someone decides to save you. Possible saviors include: a foul-mouthed struggling screenwriter who moonlights as a car thief, an obscenely wealthy rapper, a dying cosmonaut on his way back to Earth and one very deranged little boy. Good luck.

Change is, suffice it to say, surreal to the extreme, and not for the faint of heart.

godhates

We’re attending Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle this weekend, so you get the episode a little bit early. This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is??God Hates Astronauts, by Ryan Browne. Initially launched as a webcomic in 2007, the series was collected reprinted by Image as God Hates Astronauts, Vol. 1. In 2014 the series was relaunched as a print series, the first collection of which has been released as Volume 2.

The series??is a crude and absurd satire of superhero comics. It follows a group of heroes called the Power Persons Five??through a series of??inane and insane adventures, most of which revolve around petty revenge. The comic is over the top in every way imaginable both in art and story, in a way that honestly defies brief summation.

However if you are amused by concepts like King Tiger Eating a Cheeseburger (his actual full name), centaur astronauts, or the dad from Family Matters with gorilla arms, this comic might be for you.

In our recommendation section, our hosts nominated The Brave and the Bold, The Strain, Black Widow, and Sexcastle for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Black Widow, Vol. 1 & 2.

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

If you are at ECCC??on Saturday and would like to say hi to us, we’ll be having an informal meet-up.
