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 to the Geek Hard site before, you probably already know that we love Chip Zdarsky around here. His work as an artist is fantastic. His work as a writer is even better! Howard the Duck, Jughead and Starlord have all been a ton of fun! These days, he’s blowing away readers with his work on Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man! It feels like it’s the book he was born to write as his take on the wall crawler is original but also familiar. His stories harken back to a time when Peter Parker was not some big time inventor but instead a lovable schlub with the worst luck. He doesn’t retread old ideas. He lets the past inform and inspire new stories. His work with the supporting cast is also great (especially J. Jonah Jameson).

Join us for another edition of Back Issue Bloodbath where Andrew and Sammy take a look at this current Spider-Man series and sing the praises of it’s “back to basics” story telling and strong character development. There’s also a little love thrown artists Adam Kubert and Michael Walsh’s way. Stay tuned for some friendly neighbourhood podcasting on an all new episode of Bloodbath!
