This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Kill Shakespeare, by Anthony Del Col, Conor McCreery, and Andy Belanger. The series follows Hamlet, of the Shakespeare play, who—having left Denmark and sailed for England as he should—is beset by pirates. After escaping a bloody battle on a plank of wood Hamlet awakens not in England, but in a land populated by Shakespearian characters, in the castle of Richard III.
He is soon embroiled in a great war between various factions, all seeking The Bard himself, for their own purposes.
In our recommendation section our hosts nominated Black Science, The Thessaliad, Friends with Boys, and Five Ghosts for discussion on our next episode, and our selected title is Five Ghosts.
Our hosts for this episode are Joe Preti, Kayleigh Fleeman, Kit DeForge, and Brant Gillihan-Eddy.
Alex and Ada is Jonathan Luna and Sara Vaughn’s critically acclaimed 15-issue series about human interaction with A.I. It raises some interesting issues, but does it handle them well? Have the same ideas been explored better elsewhere? Tim and Kumar open up the machine and take a look.

Eric was sick as a dog, but instead of taking the week off, Jim forced him to get out of bed and record the podcast…sort of. With the help of Reggie, they recorded an abridged version of the podcast with reviews of Batman and Robin Eternal #21, Justice League #48, Superman: The Coming of the Supermen #1, Superman/Wonder Woman #26 and Superman #49. While that doesn’t seem like a lot, it still was almost 4 hours long! Enjoy!
Eric, Jim and Reggie get together to discuss their Top 5 80’s Movies and while they may have struggled a bit with the more structured format, they get their picks out there. They also manage to talk a bunch of nonsense and stretch the podcast out more than they had planned. Enjoy and if you have any questions of comments, email the guys at email@example.com
We watch “Contracted: Phase Four”. Where the other three are we don’t know. Lament the loss of several celebrities through the last few weeks. Rev finally finishes Daredevil and some Jessica Jones, and several Flashes-and for once he’s not disappointed. Complain some more about the Black Series Figures. Tech mentions the 17 issues of NOW! Terminator covered in the next entry…Then there’s some Namor, and some Tom Strong, and Johnni Future, still going through fallout from the Midtown 2015 purge.
Finally we get to November’s Independents-starting with HARROW COUNTY 7-involving the seduction of all the haints Emmy placated and getting ready to turn them 0n her. HELLBOY 1953-The Witch Tree + Rawhead and Bloody Bones brings us two shorts revolving ancient Romans, Boudicca’s soul, and a pub haunted by irritated spirits. JAMES BOND-VARGR 1 is nice, but frankly it’s the opening sequence to every other Bond flick ever. BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA 18 is on 22 page poker instruction manual interrupted by a comic book. THE FADE OUT 11 presents the *ridiculolusly under-planned attempt of Gil and Charlie to finally get evidence against Kamp, and failing in the single worst way. WE STAND ON GUARD 5 gives us the concept that candy bars prove life over VR-and Amber starts a suicide run. VELVET 12 is welcomed back warmly with X-33 sent to work on Velvet-X-14 steps in and saves the day, providing taught, hi class spy drama we adore. REBELS 8 regales teh tale of the subversive printer, sent to prison and encouraged to write further by another inmate. Seth then confronts a slave working for the British. ATOMIC ROBO and THE RING OF FIRE 3 give Robo his new body, and plans are made to see in nukes *inside Biomega will help at all. SAGA 31 is a Hazel story, both currently and in flashback, which entertains us immensely. DESCENDER 7 continues to amaze us with the introduction of a planet condemned to die by a robot bounty hunter, who then takes the job on Tim-21…WAR STORIES 14 continues Tokyo Club, in the all-recrimination issue. INVISIBLE REPUBLIC 7 has the parallels of King Arthur and Arthur, and that’s a bit of a stretch. CULLEN BUNN’S SHADOW 2-4 is a tour de force of mystery, magic, twin .45s and the end of the world through Lovecraftian horrors.

Nick Marino and Arruda Massa are back with Holy F*cked, the follow-up to their highly irreverent comedy Holy F*ck, starring Jesus and Satan in a romantic relationship. Does this book hold a candle to the first? Tim and Mulele discuss.
