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.
This week, Andrew switches things up a bit as he will not be joined by Sammy Younan. Sammy is taking a much needed vacation as reading a Steve Trevor comic a few weeks back really took the wind out of his sails. (Wait a second….he didn’t even read that comic….oh well.) Sitting in for Sammy will be longtime friend of the show and co-writer of Geek Hard’s New Comics blog, Kris Johnson. Kris loves comics almost as much as he loves his own son…almost. Kris is also a big fan of Danny Rand, a.k.a. Iron Fist. That works out well as we look at the current Iron Fist comic by Ed Brisson and Mike Perkins.
For those not in the know, Danny Rand is the champion and protector of the mystical city of K’un Lun. He carries the chi of Shou Lao The Undying, which gives Danny the power to make his fist like a thing unto iron. Except these days, that chi has weakened. Danny’s cut off from K’un Lun and is trying to find a way to get his mojo back. What better way to get back into top Immortal Weapon shape than to go to a hidden kung fu island and fight the various masters there for their chi? Sounds like a plan to Danny. And it sounds like this week’s topic on an ALL NEW Back Issue Bloodbath. Take a listen.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with “Back Issue Bloodbath” in the subject line. We’d love to hear from you. And be sure to join our Facebook page for exclusive content.
