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.

Christmas is a special time. A time of customs and traditions. For Andrew, those traditions include reading a sleigh-full of Christmas comics. Every year, Marvel, DC, Dark Horse and more provide good fanboys and girls Holiday inspired comics. As Sammy will attest, most of these comics are not very good. In fact, a lot of them make you want to say “HUMBUG!” But leave it to the Bloodbath boys to find just the right comics to celebrate this very festive season.

Join Andrew and Sammy as they look back through Christmas Comics Past, name checking some very special DC and Marvel Holiday specials. Sammy remembers when the Punisher made his list and checked it twice. Andrew reminisces about that time Kitty Pryde fought a demon on Christmas Eve. There’s talk of The Goon’s first Christmas issue and Sammy even finds a way to work in talk of stockings……fishnet stockings. I know, not necessarily the yuletide cheer you were looking for. But hey, Andrew makes it all better with his tribute to the Winter Soldier: Winter Kills One-Shot. It’s a Christmas Miracle! Even Larfleeze gets his due. All part of a very special holiday edition of your favourite comic book podcast, Back Issue Bloodbath. Have a happy holiday, one and all.
