Welcome friends to Back Issue Bloodbath, a comics-centric podcast presented by Geek Hard. Join hosts Andrew Young and Gavin Stephens as they get down and dirty in the four-colour world of comic books, focusing on classic stories, new issues, comic creators and hot button topics.
This week we look at Death in Comics. Once a powerful storytelling tool decades past, killing a character has become something done more for shock value and media attention. With death’s revolving door and the quick returns of heroes and villains from the grave, is there any meaning left in funnybook character fatalities? Andrew and Gavin talk about this at length in the latest bloodbath.
If you’re gonna geek out, GEEK HARD!
