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 Back Issue Bloodbath, we take another trip back to Toronto ComiCon 2018 with an interview with another talented artist. This time, Andrew interviews John McCrea. The Irish artist is best known for his numerous collaborations with Garth Ennis over the years but has worked with a great deal of amazing creators. In this interview, we talk about his first work for 2000AD, the difference of opinions that he and Garth have on superheroes, as well as a very interesting time John had while attending a comic con in Poland. There’s also an interesting discussion about fans that follow characters and brands as opposed to creator’s work. It’s a fun time and there are a lot of laughs in this interview.

For fans of Sammy Younan, unfortunately, he’s not featured in this episode. But don’t worry. We’ll be back to our usual format next week. That’s when you’ll hear Sammy’s happy voice saying angry things and everything will be right in the world again. For now, enjoy this interview with a fantastic creator who loves Spider-Man and knows how to dance. That last part will make more sense once you listen to the episode. So what are you waiting for? Listen to the latest Back Issue Bloodbath RIGHT NOW!
