John Mayo and Kay Kellam have a spoiler filled discuss about the Dwayne Johnson Hercules film based on the Hercules: The Thracian Wars miniseres published in 2008 by Radical Comics. They also compare the Hercules film to The Legend of Hercules film starring Kellan Lutz released at the beginning of 2014.
It’s a two-fer this week, as we look at, not one, but TWO Norse myths! First we have “Skirnir’s Journey”, a chauvinistic tale of a dude who goes to Jotunheim to threaten and curse a woman on behalf of his boss, and then we look at “Gylfi and Gefion”, where an old lady fools a King and steals a bunch of this land! (So that makes it all better…)

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Three, written by Kieron Gillen with art by Ryan Kelly. Three is Gillen’s direct response to Frank Miller’s 300. It is the story of three Helot slaves in Sparta, roughly a century after the Battle of Thermopylae—a period when Sparta was in decline. The three slaves are the lone survivors of an uprising against the masters and are fleeing Sparta, pursued by an army of Spartans seeking revenge.

Jon Hoche returns to join Jimmy in studio to fill the rotating co-host chair. Jimmy shares his cameo appearance in his pal Grace Helbig’s recent video and they wish a big happy 86th anniversary to Mickey and Minnie Mouse! Special guest Fred Van Lente also joins the guys to chat about his extensive writing career in comics. We cover much including his early work to his massive Marvel comics up to his current new Dark Horse series Resurrectionists. Fred also has great tips on writing for all of you budding writers out there. And we bring back the old CNI questionnaire to find out some of Fred’s favorite superhero onomatopoeia and catch phrases. It’s a lengthy episode but chock full of FVL goodness! Apologies for rushing at the end though. Jon and Jimmy had to bust out to go see an advanced screening of Kingsman: The Secret Service (Thanks Mark Millar!). Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!
