View from the Gutters #53 — The Infinity Gauntlet

This week on View from the Gutters we discuss classic Marvel event, The Infinity Gauntlet, by Jim Starlin with art by George Perez and Ron Lim.

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 Infinity Gauntlet, by Jim Starlin, with art by George Perez and Ron Lim. Released in 1991, The Infinity Gauntlet is one of Marvel's earliest big crossover events. The mad titan Thanos, paramour of Death herself, has collected the fabled Infinity Gems. Each gem is an artifact of great power in and of itself, but together they grant the wielder ultimate power over the universe!

Soon the effects of Thanos's power are felt all across the universe, and the heroes of Earth—those that survive the initial onslaught—must band together in a desperate attempt to wrest the gems from their new master. Along the way they receive help from some of the most powerful entities in the Marvel U., including the Celestials, Love and Hate, Order and Chaos, and the personification of all that is: Eternity.

The Infinity Gauntlet is a great, fun, classic Marvel event. It's also a great story if you are a new reader who has seen the Marvel movies, and wants more information on the Infinity Gems Stones mentioned in Thor 2: The Dark World, or about the big purple guy shown at the end of The Avengers.

In our recommendation section our hosts nominated Green Hornet: Parallel Lives, The Frank Book, Planetary, and East of West for discussion, and our selected title is Planetary.

Our hosts on this episode are Andrew Chard, Joe Preti, Tobiah Panshin, and Cade Reynolds.
