That’s right friends, there is no Back Issue Bloodbath this week. For those of you looking for the smart and funny exchange of ideas and theories on the four-colour world of comic books from those two lovable scamps, Andrew Young and Gavin Stephens, you will not find it here this week.

What pray tell does this all mean?

Why is there no Bloodbath this week to sooth the savage need for comic book critical analysis?

What is the reason for all this?

These are all very valid questions and I will do my best to answer them.

What it means is that there is no show being posted this week, but we will be back soon. Maybe next week or the week after that. We’re not gone forever….just this week. The reason for this is that the powers that be, the illuminati, big brother, whatever you want to call them, they don’t want you to hear the truth. So they’ve tried to shut us down by destroying Andrew’s computer. The same computer that Andrew uses to edit each new episode of Bloodbath and where he keeps the raw audio files. Andrew has to wait until Saturday for his Genius Bar appointment, so they think they have won! But rest assured, they have not won and more Bloodbaths will be in store for you very soon.

The raw audio files were on his computer? He didn’t have it backed up on an external drive or something? I thought Andrew knew better.

I do….I mean he does. It was one oversight this one time. Whose side are you on, anyways?

So that’s the long and short of it. Back Issue Bloodbath is taking a short, impromptu hiatus (that seems to be going around the Geek Hard network these days, doesn’t it?) but we will be back in the next week or two. Keep your eyes peeled and your ear to the ground. In the meantime, take a listen to past episodes to tide you over.

If you’re gonna geek out, GEEK HARD!
