This week I have a great time chatting with Ruben Romero, one of the creators of The Agency, a great comic book about an orphan who catches the attention of an international organization dealing with magic. It’s a very professional independent comic with great story and art, and you can find out more by going to thinkalikeproductions.com! The first issue should be available on Comixology, with the second soon on its way!
Ruben talks about making the series come alive with co-creators Bethany Romero, Roger Cabrera, Ross Hughes and Eric Koda, among other things. Don’t miss it!

This week I decided to have some fun in honor of SDCC going on right now, I will try my best to predict the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So much news is buzzing around the release dates that they have announced I will guess based on all the available information what movies will eventually match with said dates. Then next week I will follow up after all the dust settles from SDCC and see how close I came with the actual announcements. Enjoy!
Under the Flesh is a great comic that combines zombies with a dash of Captain America and a sprinkle of Y: The Last Man. The first issue has been produced, but it’s important to support the book’s creators to make sure the second issue comes out.
This week, I talk with creator Gilbert Deltres about the Kickstarter program he’s started to help fund the second issue and hopefully help more of this excellent comic be made. The funds will be used to make sure more Under the Flesh comes out and includes helping pay for the excellent art by J.L. Giles.
To support the book, you can go to undertheflesh.com, which will contain links that will direct you to the Kickstarter page and also give you sample pages from the first issue! If you can help, please do, and check out the story so far!
Next week, I’ll be chatting with Ruben Romero about The Agency, a great comic dealing with the IAM, the International Agency of Magic, and a teenager named Ryan who has caught their attention. Be sure to listen in then to learn more!
This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Seconds, by Bryan Lee O’Malley. Seconds is a beautifully drawn all-ages books which will very familiar to anyone who is a fan of O’Malley’s previous work, Scott Pilgrim versus The World. It is the story of a young chef named Katie, who is in a period of transition in her life as she prepares to leave the restaurant she has spent the last 5 years working at in order to open a restaurant of her very own.
Through a series of odd events Katie is presented with the opportunity to edit her own history to correct one regret from her past. Things quickly spiral out of control, however, as Katie decides she isn’t satisfied with just one change and begins a campaign to fix everything she ever did wrong in order to attain the perfect life. Unfortunately, things are never quite that simple.

San Diego Comicon happened again! Far be it from Doc Fluxx and Father Shepherd to avoid providing a bit of post-exhibition coverage in a such a way that only Feed It Comics could deliver. So listen, we weren’t there, we watched all this crap unfold on the internet like most gentlenerds, so don’t expect anything exclusive.
We also review a few titles! From Image, Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s Wicked and Divine (1 & 2), DC’s spanking new Star-Spangled War Stories by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti, and Marvel’s debut of a new solo title for Storm by Greg Pak!
May the master never go hungry!
