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.

After a one week hiatus, Back Issue Bloodbath RETURNS! This week, Andrew and Gavin will be taking a look at Deadly Class, a title from Image Comics that follows street kid Marcus and a group of deadly teenagers as they make their way through Kings Dominion, a high school that breaks all the rules…..because it’s a school that teaches kids to kill. The sons and daughters of mobsters, assassins and killers from around the world learn the finer points of murder and mayhem at this secret school hidden in San Francisco. Written by Rick Remender with artwork by Wes Craig, this book has had 20 issues out so far (with issue 21 hitting comic stands today!) and things are really heating up in the latest story arc, Die for Me.

What will Andrew and Gavin have to say about Deadly Class? Will this title be a strong recommendation? Or will it make Gavin’s shit list (currently the home of the most recent Black Canary series)? The only way to find out is to give the show a listen. If you’re looking for some comic analysis with more than a few jokes thrown in, you’ve come to the right place. Do yourself a favor – sit back and enjoy two guys talking about one of the most interesting Image titles out there. Go ahead, give the latest Bloodbath a listen RIGHT NOW!

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!
