This week on View from the Gutters we discuss The Manhattan Projects, by Jonathan Hickman and Nick Pitarra.
View from the Gutters is our weekly book club podcast. Each week we discuss one graphic novel or trade paperback, then nominate and vote on what to read for the next episode so you can read and discuss along with us.
This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is The Manhattan Projects, by Jonathan Hickman and Nick Pitarra. It is an altera-universe action science comic in the tradition of The Five Fists of Science. Set during and in the aftermath of World War II, it follows the actions of the U.S. War Department's secret weapons program: The Manhattan Projects.
Led by Gen. Leslie Groves and featuring a team of scientists including Robert Oppenheimer, Albert Einstein, Enrico Fermi, and Richard Feynman, the Projects mine pan-dimensional space for fringe materials to build impossible machines, fight Zen-powered Death Buddhas, and square off with the USSR's counter-science program.
In our recommendation section our hosts nominated Hopeless Savages, Darkwing Duck, Tintin, Jinx, and Infinite Vacation for discussion, and our selected title is Hopeless Savages.
Our hosts for this episode were Andrew Chard, Joe Preti, Tobiah Panshin, Eric Manix, and Cade Reynolds.
