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.

It is with a heavy heart that we bring you the bad news that a new episode of Back Issue Bloodbath will not be available this week. No Back Issue Bloodbath, sorry. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we were unable to get together for a recording. The full explanation is available in the short audio message that Andrew has included with this post. There’s also a recommendation on a new comic series that he thinks you should be checking out.

I know this week will be tough without a new episode of Bloodbath, but I am certain that you will be able to soldier on. You can get through this. And next week will be here before you know it! We’ve got episodes planned that look back at Batman: The Long Halloween, the career of comic scribe and television producer Jeph Loeb, the influence of politics on our comics and even some reviews of great and not-so-great graphic novels! It’s all coming your way in the next few weeks. So at least there’s something to look forward to, right?

As stated above, take a listen to the audio message included with this post where Andrew explains the situation for you all. Once you hear it, I’m sure you’ll 100% understand why we couldn’t do a show this week. But again, we’re sorry there’s no Back Issue Bloodbath this week.

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!

Don't worry, no need to panic....we'll be back next week with more Bloodbath.
