View from the Gutters #74 — Black Science

This week on View from the Gutters we discuss Black Science, by Rick Remender, Matteo Scalero, and Dean White.

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Black Science, Vol. 1, written by Rick Remender with art by Matteo Scalera and colors by Dean White. Launched in 2013, Black Science is an ongoing series. Using "The Pillar", a device of their own creation, Grant McKay and his team of scientists are able to jump from reality to reality. However, shortly after their first successful test jump The Pillar is sabotaged, and the team—along with their financier and Grant's two teenage children—find themselves uncontrollably leaping from reality to reality.

Black Science is in some ways a continuation of the love-letter to classic SF movies that Remender began in his now classic series, FEAR Agent, along with a dash of Conan the Barbarian for spice. Scalera and White's art is vivid and imaginative, with amazing designs and tons of atmosphere. If you enjoyed some of the previous Remender penned titles we've discussed on this show, you're sure to get a kick out of this one too.

In our recommendation section our hosts nominated JLA/Avengers, Midnight Nation, Universe X, and Dead Body Road for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Universe X.

We invite you to discuss both this episode and its topic on our subreddit.

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