View from the Gutters #77 — Rocket Girl, Vol. 1

This week on View from the Gutters we discuss Rocket Girl, Vol. 1 — the 80s-awesome sci-fi comic by Amy Reeder and Brandon Montclare.

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 Rocket Girl, Vol. 1, by Amy Reeder and Brandon Montclare. Launched by a Kickstarter campaign, Rocket Girl is the story of DaYoung Johansson, an officer of the New York Teen Police in the far-out future year of 2013, a time of jet packs, flying cars, and robots which is all controlled by the omnipresent Quintum Mechanics. DaYoung discovers that Quintum has been perpetrating crimes against time, and travels all the way back to the year 1986 in order to stop them.

In our recommendation section our hosts nominated Sin Titulo, Astonishing Spider-Man & Wolverine, Seconds, and Deadly Class for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Seconds.

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.
