View from the Gutters #133 — Stagger Lee

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Stagger Lee, by Shepard Hendrix and Derek McCulloch. This limited series from Image examines the history and evolution of the classic ragtime, blues, jazz, and rock ‘n rock song Stagger Lee, as well as the real-life events surrounding the shooting of Billy Lyons by Lee Shelton which inspired the piece.

It is a fascinating story of political corruption, murder, intrigue, and the black experience at the end of the 19th Century.

In our recommendation section our hosts nominated Lackadaisy, Street Angel, Sentences: The Life of M.F. Grimm, and Hiphop Family Tree for discussion on our next episode, and our selected title is Hiphop Family Tree, Vol. 1-3.

Our hosts for this episode are Andrew Chard, Tobiah Panshin, Kayleigh Fleeman, and special guest Kenny Wisdom, host of On the Bubble.

Deconstructing Comics #463: Bat in Time

Is this the sixties, or 2039?

Batman Year 100In a time without superheroes, Batman sightings are reported. But isn’t he an urban legend? Paul Pope brings his unique, inventive style to the Batman of 2039 in Batman Year 100. While new characters stand in for Robin and Oracle, is there a reason there’s no Alfred analogue? Why do Paul Pope characters have big lips? Tim and Brandon discuss this and more.

Batman '66: The Lost EpisodeFrom Batman 2039, we move to Batman 1966! When production of the Adam West Batman series was gearing up, Harlan Ellison (writer of the Star Trek episode “City on the Edge of Forever”, and much else of note) submitted a treatment for an episode featuring Two-Face. While the treatment was accepted, it never made it to the script stage. Finally, in 2014, DC released a comics adaptation of this story, Batman ’66: The Lost Episode, scripted by Len Wein and drawn by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez (cover by Alex Ross). Does it feel like the show? Who might have played Two-Face? What does this book tell us about the differences between making a TV show and making a comic? Tim and Paul slide down the Batpoles for a closer look.

Crisis On Infinite Midlives Show Episode 85: Fear The Walking Tropes

CrisisOnInfinideMidlivesPodcastLogo_300x300After a long week of hunting for possible new locations for the Crisis On Infinite Midlives Home Office, we were finally able to sit down and watch the premiere episode of the new AMC spinoff to The Walking Dead, Fear The Walking Dead.

We had reservations about the show going in, such as fears that this might be where we discover what caused The Walking Dead‘s walkers to start walking, or that a show about the beginning of a zombie apocalypse would be nothing but a new take on a story we’ve seen in Night of The Living Dead, Dawn of The Dead, and about two dozen different video games, or that a show about the beginning of the end would inevitably become a story about what happens after the end… and we already have that show.

Thankfully, none of those failure were evident. Unfortunately, many others, including inconsistent direction and writing, and a reliance on horror movie tropes of the kind you see on Netflix at 3 a.m. when you’re drunk and bored. And we talk about all of them… as well as the stuff that we liked, and gave us hope that there’s more to this show than the flaws in its pilot.

We also discuss:

  • Lando #3, written by Charles Soule with art by Alex Maleev, and:
  • Hank Johnson: Agent of Hydra, written by David Mandel with art by Michael Walsh!

And, as always, the disclaimers:

  • We record this show live to tape, with minimal editing. While this might mean a looser comics podcast than you are used to, it also means that anything can happen. Like learning the secret ingredient in Amanda’s hummus, and why it would offend Cthulhu.
  • This show contains spoilers. While we try to shout out warnings ahead of time, consider this your alert that Lando Calrissian was not eaten to death by a space vagina.
  • This show contains adult, profane language, and is therefore not safe for work. Once your mom hears the Sarlacc described as a space vagina, she will never be able to unsee it. So get some headphones.

Editors’ Note: We are currently not planning to release a new episode on Sunday, September 6th (although if our schedule changes for the better, we may). Regardless, we will be back to our regularly scheduled programming on Sunday, September 13th.

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Episode 34: The Marathon Session

batman

ep 34: Jim and Eric cave in to  listener demand that they get rid of the “Flash Reviews” segment of the podcast and talk at length about every single DC Comics issue that hit the shelves this week.  That is fifteen books and boy, it took a long time to record this one.  I don’t know if they can keep up this pace and not kill themselves or find themselves abandoned by their family and friends. They also talk some news including DC Comics going against the “batgirlization” of their books.   So, here is the longest podcast they will ever do…until the next one.  Enjoy!
