View from the Gutters is a weekly book club podcast. Each week we discuss one graphic novel or trade paperback. We encourage listeners to read and discuss along with us.

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is:

Supreme: Blue Rose

Story by . . . . . . Warren Ellis
Art by . . . . . . . . Tula Lotay

From Goodreads:

...Supreme: Blue Rose re-introduces the central Image Comics character Supreme, in a multi-layered and often hallucinatory mystery presented by New York Times bestselling writer Warren Ellis and acclaimed new artist Tula Lotay in her astonishing graphic novel debut.

Brant says:

We work our way through an entire episode looking to express how Warren Ellis and other brit comic authors make us feel as we rave about Tula Lotay's art and argue just how well we actually understood this book. We struggle to make Joe talk into his mic and we wax about Alan Moore in a positive light as we wonder how the hell Rob Leifeld ever convinced him to be involved in this property's history that Ellis so capably takes on in his own intense way.

Our hosts for this episode are Brant Gillihan-Eddy, Adam Panshin, Joe Preti, Kit DeForge and Tobiah Panshin. On our next episode we will be reading Lucky Penny.

A special thank you to our Patreon sponsors for this month: Tony Queretaro, Chris Bianculli, Bryan May, Becca Levendowski, Addison Appleby, and Kerfy Gonzo.
