View from the Gutters #174 – All-Star Batman and Robin, The Boy Wonder

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is:

All-Star Batman and Robin, The Boy Wonder

Story by . . . . . . The Goddamn Frank Miller
Art by . . . . . . . . The Goddamn Jim Lee

From Wikipedia:

All Star Batman & Robin, the Boy Wonder is an American comic book series written by Frank Miller and penciled by Jim Lee. It was published by DC Comics, with a sporadic schedule, between 2005 and 2008… This was the first series to be launched in 2005 under DC’s All Star imprint. These series are helmed by renowned writers and artists in the American comic book industry and attempt to retell some of the history of prominent DC Universe characters, but outside of DC Universe continuity, and not be restricted by it, in order to appeal to new and returning readers. Each title under the All Star imprint is set in its own continuity and separate universe. According to Miller, the series takes place in the same universe as The Dark Knight Returns.

Brant says:

The goddamn hosts of this goddamn podcast try to figure out what the hell is going on with this goddamn comic…I’ll stop now. We, like so many before us, struggle to reconcile the craziness of this story and fit it in its time and place in an attempt to understand what really cannot be understood. I go on a sort of strange rant about Marvel fanboys. Much like the comic we read, this episode is sure to leave most wondering what the hell they just experienced.

Our hosts for this episode are Brant Eddy, Joe Preti, Kenny “Coach” Wisdom and Tobiah Panshin. On our next episode we will be reading Monstress.

A special thank you to our Patreon sponsors for this month: Tony Queretaro, Chris Bianculli, Bryan May, Addison Appleby, and Kerfy Gonzo.
