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 episode, we take a look at one of the series that made Andrew’s Ten Best Comics of 2017 (as well as everbody else’s Best of Lists), Mister Miracle! Written by Tom King and drawn by Mitch Gerads, this comic follows the New God Scott Free as he’s going through an existential crisis. Mister Miracle has escaped everything….except death. Is that his next great escape attempt? Has he already escaped his own reality? The comic is a character study filled with contemplative conundrums and trippy illustrations. It’s also the most interesting story using the The New Gods in a long, long time.
Join your humble heroes and hosts, Andrew and Sammy, as they dissect the first half of this 12 issue miniseries on the latest Back Issue Bloodbath. Each have an interesting take on the story so far and you might want to check out this book once you hear their thoughts. There’s even a striking sidebar on when to abandon a writer’s work and an injury that comes out of nowhere! All in a day’s work for the Bloodbath crew. It’s a well rounded show for your well balanced diet of podcast consumption. Don’t forget to subscribe to our show and make it a part of your weekly routine.
