On this week's episode of View from the Gutters the topic is 1602, by Neil Gaiman.
This week on View from the Gutters, our topic work is Neil Gaiman’s 1602
. This series has an interesting origin, in that Gaiman agreed to work for Marvel in part to fund his legal dispute with Todd McFarlane over rights to the character MiracleMan—which is itself a story.
Penned with inimitable style by Andy Kubert and digitally painted by Richard Isanove, 1602 is the tale of the Marvel Universe transposed onto the backdrop of the European Renaissance. Characters like Dr. Strange and Nick Fury slide almost perfectly into their old roles, while elsewhere the Inquisition hunts for Charles Xaiver Carlos Jaiver and his “witchbreed” students, and a poor blind minstrel sings ballads of the “Four of the Fantastick”.
In our recommendation section our hosts nominated Old City Blues, Samurai: Heaven and Earth, Fray, Blacksad, and Daredevil, Vol. 1 for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Blacksad.
Our hosts for this episode were Andrew Chard, Joe Preti, Eric Manix, Tobiah Panshin, and Cade Reynolds.
