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 on Bloodbath, we take look at Super Sons, the DC comic series from Peter Tomasi and Jorge Jimenez. Almost a year ago, we marveled at Tomasi’s Superman series. The story of Clark Kent training his son Jonathan to understand and control his powers was one of the most exciting comics of 2016. Now Tomasi has continued Jonathan’s story in the pages of Super Sons. Teaming up with Damian Wayne, a.k.a. Robin, the pair have faced off against Kid Amazo and Lex Luthor as well as traveled to another dimension. They even have a cool new headquarters (The Fortress of Attitude!). Things are looking up for the next gen Supes and Bats. All they have to do is figure out how to work together.
Listen as Andrew and Sammy talk about the first 10 issues of this series and where they think it’s going. Sammy’s a huge fan of this pairing. Andrew has loved everything Peter Tomasi has done with Superman. Will he feel the same way about this new dynamic duo? The only way to find out is to listen to the latest episode of Back Issue Bloodbath. It’s a great break between all your Christmas and New Year’s festivities.
