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 you’ve been a long time listener of Back Issue Bloodbath, you may have picked up on the fact that we love Green Arrow. Both Andrew and Sammy are big fans. The Green Arrow series launched last year has brought new life to this great character. (Thank you Rebirth!) Written by Benjamin Percy with artwork from Otto Schmidt, Juan Ferreyra and Eleanora Carlini, the series has combined elements from the pre and post New 52 worlds seamlessly. The book marks a return to GA’s social justice warrior stance which has been missing for many years. Black Canary’s also back in the mix, adding to an interesting supporting cast to back up our chili-loving hero. (Yes! He loves chili again!) There’s also some great new villains mixed in with old favourites (like Clock King and Merlin to name a couple).
This is the book that longtime Ollie Queen fans have been waiting for. Join us as we cover the copious amounts of awesome that is the current Green Arrow run. This series is right on target and we plan to talk about it in our usual fashion on an ALL NEW Back Issue Bloodbath. Take a listen and enjoy your life.
