Welcome friends to Back Issue Bloodbath, a comics-centric podcast presented by Geek Hard. Join hosts Andrew Young and Sammy Younan 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’s been awhile since we talked DC comics on Back Issue Bloodbath. Guess it’s time we correct this by taking a look at Wonder Woman. Since it’s Rebirth re-launch, the book has been getting critical praise. Greg Rucka has been brining us two issues a month: a story set in current time drawn by Liam Sharp and a “Year One” adventure retelling the origin of the Amazon with art by Nicola Scott. Two titanic tales of Wonder. Who can say no to that? The current story focuses on Wonder Woman questioning her identity. Her memory is muddled and she’s having trouble finding her way back home to Themyscira. Will she find her way home and will she be happy with what she finds when she gets there? Rucka is presenting some interesting questions and there’s a number of different ways the story can go.
Join Andrew and Sammy as they discuss the current Wonder Woman title, dissecting the pros and cons of this new era. Plus, find out about Sammy’s unbridled hate towards traditional love interest Steve Trevor. The guy’s been in WW comics for years and Sammy just can’t see why. Take a listen to hear this rant and more on an ALL NEW Bloodbath.
