Welcome friends to Back Issue Bloodbath, a comics-centric podcast presented by Geek Hard. Join hosts Andrew Young and Sammy Younan 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.

It’s the dawn of a new era on Back Issue Bloodbath as Andrew welcomes his new co-host, Sammy Younan to the fold. Long time listeners of Bloodbath will recognize this energetic chap as he’s been a series regular throughout the summer. Sammy is also the program director at Girth Radio, a podcast network that sports music and talk shows for all different tastes. He’s also the host of My Summer Lair, a podcast which features guests of the nerdy variety. We’re very happy to have Sammy as the new permanent co-host….especially for this week’s topic.

This week, we take a look back on the 1986 Punisher miniseries, Circle of Blood. The first solo series for everybody’s favourite vigilante, Circle of Blood would feature a number of great creators including Steven Grant, Mike Zeck and Jo Duffy, putting their stamp on the character and defining him for the 80s generation. It was the first mainstream Marvel book to bring in risque subject matter such as sex, suicide and the murder of a child. It was also the defining artwork of Zeck’s career. Join us as we travel back to the mid 80s and dissect this Punisher classic!

Have an idea for a certain topic we should cover? Have an indie comic book you’d like us to review? Send us an email at geekhardshow@gmail.com with “Back Issue Bloodbath” in the subject line. We’d love to hear from you.

If you’re gonna geek out, GEEK HARD!
