This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Superior Foes of Spider-Man, #1-6 by Nick Spencer and Steve Lieber. One of the more recent comics we've discussed, Superior Foes is a somewhat comic take (no pun intended) on the traditional team of Spider-Man villains, The Sinister Six... despite the fact that there's only five members on the team.
It's a street level look at the Marvel U. from the perspective of five C-list super-criminals as they tangle with heroes, other gangsters, and the occasional parol officer. It's a fun, witty break from the high drama of titles like the Avengers and Inhumanity.
In our recommendation section our hosts nominated Rick Remender's Uncanny X-Force, Vol. 1-4, Rice Boy, The Eternals, Vol. 3, and The Unknown for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Uncanny X-Force, Vol. 1-4.
Our hosts for this episode were Andrew Chard, Joe Preti, Tobiah Panshin, and Cade Reynolds.
