View from the Gutters: Gødland

On this week's episode of View from the Gutters the topic is the trippy Jack Kirby inspired comic, Gødland.




This week on View from the Gutters, our topic work is Gødland, by Joe Casey and Tom Scioli. First released in 2005, Gødland is a wild, weird comic that takes on the style of Jack Kirby from his seminal creations The Eternals and The Fourth World, treats it as a genre, and leaps off from there into even stranger directions.
 
The comic follows the adventures of Adam Archer, the only surviving astronaut from the first manned mission to Mars, who discovers an alien device which grants him awesome super powers. In volume one he encounters strange super-villains, alien dogs, and a legion of cosmic babies. This is one of the oddest comics we’ve read on View from the Gutters, and it definitely did not disappoint!
 
In our recommendation section our hosts nominated Batman: The Cult, Thor Visionaries – Walt Simonson, Vol. 1, Meanwhile, The Underwater Welder, and The New Warriors: Reality Check for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Thor Visionaries – Walt Simonson, Vol. 1.
 
Our hosts for this episode were Andrew Chard, Eric Manix, Tobiah Panshin, and Cade Reynolds.
