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.
What if you had the power to wipe a certain comic book story out of existence? I’m not talking about removing it from continuity. What I mean is the ability to erase this particular story from the collective conscience. Would you use this power for good or evil? But more importantly, what stories would you retcon out of existence! That’s the question that Andrew and Sammy pose to each other in today’s episode of Back Issue Bloodbath.
Join us as we talk about the validity of big stories in Marvel and DC, like the Clone Saga, The Dark Knight Returns and the entire Ultimate Universe. We also look at major missteps taken with major characters like Starfire, Gwen Stacy and The Punisher and see how a simple retcon could help their careers. There’s a lot of crap talked about on this episodes, mixed in with a few surprisingly popular stories! Find out exactly what Andrew and Sammy would do if they individually had the awesome power to retcon famous comic stories and moments from all of existence. Hope you survive the experience. With great power comes great retcon-ability! (That’s the hashtag for this episode.)
