View from the Gutters presents Back Matter #8.NOW — Art vs. Artist

Back Matter is our roundtable discussion show focused on discussion that doesn’t make it into our main show, including interviews, news and events in the comics industry, television and movies, or discussions of comics which open onto a broader conversation. Feel free to email us discussion ideas or any comments or questions you might have at contact@viewfromthegutters.com.

On this episode of Back Matter our hosts discuss the line between art and artist when an artist commits acts or espouses beliefs with you disagree with morally.

WARNING: On this episode our conversation includes the frank discussion of sexual and domestic assault, as well as other topics which might be distressing to some listeners. None of the discussion is graphic, but if hearing about these topics is troubling for you, we recommend you listen to a different episode of the show.

Our Ms. Marvel episode from yesterday is basically a hug-fest, so be sure to check that one out if you haven’t yet.

Our hosts for this episode are Joe Preti,  Tobiah Panshin, Kayleigh Fleeman, Audrey Preti, and Michael Martin.


Radio Free Asgard 172

This week we cover Thor #177, another rather lackluster late Lee/Kirby issue. In this one,Thor spanks a horse, sacrifices an unfortunate fish, and Surtur manages to lose his horns!! Poor Surtur…


View from the Gutters #94 — Ms. Marvel

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Ms. Marvel, written by G. Willow Wilson with art by Adrian Alphona and Jacob Wyatt. Launched in 2014, Ms. Marvel follows the adventures of Kamala Khan, a Pakistani-American teenager from Jersey City, NJ, who gains superpowers after being exposed to the Terrigen Mists. Kamala—an avid fan (and fanfic writer) of the Avengers—almost immediately launches into a superhero career, taking up the name Ms. Marvel which was recently abandoned by her idol, Carol Danvers (who is now Captain Marvel).

The series is timely, inclusive, and above all incredibly honest. It whole-heartedly embraces Kamala’s identity as a Mulsim, a daughter of immigrants, and as an American teenager. It also demonstrates what is best in superheroes comics (and no, I don’t just mean Lockjaw).

For this episode we read all of the issues currently in print, #1-9.

The article referenced on the show is Putting The Sidekick In The Suit: Black Captain America, Female Thor, And The Illusion Of Progress. The previous discussion on the same topic is in the comments section of Back Matter #7.

In our recommendation section, our hosts nominated The Auteur, Atomic Robo, Pretty Deadly, The Rabbi’s Cat, and Four Eyes for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Four Eyes.

Our hosts for this episode are Andrew Chard, Joe Preti, Brant Gillihan-Eddy, Keyleigh Fleeman, and Tobiah Panshin.

Comics Alternative Interviews: Mike Howlett

Palate Cleanser…or Colon Cleanser?

HowlettFor this episode of The Comics Alternative Interviews, Derek and Andy are pleased have on the show Mike Howlett, the editor of the newly released The Worst of Eerie Publications from IDW/Yoe Books. In fact, Mike is the expert on Eerie Publications — an “Eerie guru,” as he calls himself — and the author of not only the recent collection but also The Weird World of Eerie Publications (a history of the publisher) and the meticulously researched The Weird Indexes of Eerie Publications. They talk with Mike about his extensive research on the various titles released through Eerie Publications during the 1960s and 1970s — e.g., Weird, Horror Tales, Tales from the Tomb, Tales of Voodoo, and Terror Tales — and WorstEeriepublisher Myron Fass’s philosophy of recycling old pre-code horror comics. What makes these comics the worst of Eerie are not only their gore and over-the-top premises, but the questionable storytelling and as well as the equally questionable process of reworking/redrawing 1950s comics for a post-1966 audience…and then reprinting those comics in the multiple publications across Eerie’s line. In fact, the guys are fascinated by the entire Eerie Publications process: photocopy pre-code horror comics, find artists who will redraw the originals, add more gore and a few contemporary updates, slap on a horrific cover with a the requisite gratuitous cleavage, and voila! Repeat as necessary. Derek and Andy also ask Mike about the special barf bag they received with their review copies of The Worst of Eerie Publications, and they feel special learning that the bags are a limited run strictly for promotional purposed.

Halloween may be over, but as Mike Howlett demonstrates, the comics from Eerie Publications are a gift that keeps on giving.
