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.
If there’s one DC comic book character that Sammy loves, it’s gotta be Wally West as The Flash. Needless to say, the New 52 was hard on the guy. Both Andrew and Sammy are of the generation that grew up with Wally West as their Flash. The legendary runs by Mark Waid and Geoff Johns on The Flash made Wally the hero we all wanted to be. For 5 years, we had to live without the original Wally. Thanks to a little thing called Rebirth, we don’t have to live without him anymore. Wally’s back and he’s in the pages of Titans.
Take a listen as Andrew and Sammy dissect the first 8 issues of Titans. We put the writing of Dan Abnett and the artwork of Brett Booth under the microscope and give our honest opinion on the new series. Does it meet the standard of what we expect from a Rebirth series? Find out as we hold nothing back. Spoilers: Sammy is really happy Wally’s back….but there’s still some gripes that both Andrew and Sammy have with this series. Find out what they are and more on an ALL NEW Back Issue Bloodbath.
