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.
These guys, right?
If you look at the works of Nick Spencer at Marvel comics, you will see quite an impressive resume. Captain America. Secret Avengers. Secret Empire. But greater than all of these is a 16 issue series he put out with artist Steve Lieber just a few short years back: Superior Foes of Spider-Man. Mixing humour, strong continuity and a fast paced story, Nick and Steve brought us the tale of a true hero….er, I mean villain.
Fred Myers, a.k.a. Boomerang, has always been a down on his luck guy. All he needs is one big score to prove to the world (and himself) that he’s actually worth a damn. So he leads the new Sinister Six (that only has five members) in what can only be described as the “Caper of the Century”. Mining Marvel’s New York underworld, the cast is a who’s who of villainy. The series is equal parts hilarious and intriguing.
This week on Back Issue Bloodbath, Andrew and Sammy take a look back at Superior Foes of Spider-Man. We pay homage to some great villains and even a few great heroes as well. All in a days work for your favourite comic book podcast.
