This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Avengers: Rage of Ultron, by Rick Remender, Jerome Opeña, and Dean White. Part of Marvel’s series of Original Graphic Novels, Rage of Ultron is primarily a story about lineage, and of fathers and sons.
It features another in a long series of battles between The Avengers and their long-time foe Ultron, with a particular focus on the relationship between Hank Pym and his “son” Ultron, as well as Ultron’s own relationship with his “son”, The Vision.
In our recommendation section, our hosts nominated Ministry of Space, Black Science (Vol. 2), Superman Unchained, Madame Xanadu, Bad Houses, and MPH for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Superman Unchained.
Our hosts for this episode are Andrew Chard, Tobiah Panshin, Brant Gillihan-Eddy, Kayleigh Fleeman, and Cade Reynolds.
At the end of March, 2015, my family and I made the journey to the Emerald City (Seattle, WA) to attend the 2015 Emerald City Comicon (ECCC). I talk about our (mostly my) experiences while there. Near the end of the episode, I talk generally about the new Daredevil TV series.
