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, Andrew is once again joined by a panel of comic experts to talk all things of a sequential art nature. James Cooper and Yaw Attuah of The Development Slate podcast come on the show to participate in a variation on their own show. The guys each pick a comic character from the Marvel or DC comic universe, and pair them with a creative team (artist and writer) who could bring the character back to four colour glory. Andrew also gives his picks and surprisingly, nobody picks a character with superpowers. It’s Character Returns Pitch Session Madness!

The conversation also leads to talk of the recently announced Runaways Hulu series and the relevance of high-numbered comic book runs. There’s even an appearance by Filthy Stan Lee and Grant the Golden Host. It’s a great way to spend a half our if you ask me. Also, be sure to listen right to the end for a very special annoucement. It’s all coming your way on an ALL NEW Back Issue Bloodbath.

Be sure to give it a listen and check out Andrew and Mr. Green of Geek Hard’s guest spot on The Development Slate (available today on iTunes and over at Dorkshelf.com).

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!
