Welcome friends to Back Issue Bloodbath, a comics-centric podcast presented by Geek Hard. Join host Andrew Young and special guests 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.

Well, what do you know? Back Issue Bloodbath has made it to 50 episodes! Whoda thunk it? It may have been a bumpy ride so far, but along the way, we’ve managed to revisit some classic stories and pay tribute to some awesome creators. And we’re not stopping anytime soon. This week, Andrew is bringing you a character spotlight that seems fitting with the content on the Geek Hard website in recent weeks. We’ve talked about his Netflix Television series both on our radio show and in print. We’ve looked back at the various moments in the character’s history. It’s only right that this week, we take a look at the Hero for Hire himself, LUKE CAGE!

Joining Andrew this week is the golden ray of sunshine that is Young Boy James and the comics professor (and co-writer of Geek Hard’s New Comics Blog) Kris Johnson. Listen as these three men look back on the comic life of the former Carl Lucas, talking about some of their favourite moments while critiquing some of their least favourite. If there’s a dude that’s gone through more gimmick changes and retreads over the years, I couldn’t tell you. Luke Cage has had some pretty funny things happen to him in the comics. He’s also been involved in some of the most interesting stories in the history of the Marvel Universe. Take a listen and find out the full story of the man with unbreakable skin on an ALL NEW Back Issue Bloodbath.

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!
