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 there is a character that has Batman’s number, it’s Catwoman. Literally! Selina Kyle is without a doubt, one of the coolest characters in the DCU. But even cool cats get the blues. Ever since Selina left Bruce, she’s been living pretty rough. But if living rough is the price to pay for your own series, I don’t think she’s complaining.
Written and drawn by Joelle Jones (with additional artwork by Fernando Blanco), the latest Catwoman ongoing series started up last Fall. Selina has left Gotham and taken up residence in the coastal city of Villa Hermosa. She just wants to be left alone. The local crime family, headed up by the governor’s wife, Raina Creel, is not interested in leaving her be. They drag her into a fight she didn’t ask for. She might not have asked for this fight, but she’s damn sure gonna win it.
Take a listen to the latest Back Issue Bloodbath to hear Andrew and Sammy’s thoughts on Copycats, the first story arc of the current Catwoman series. It’s the purrrrfect way to spend your time. As a bonus, Andrew also reveals the type of Batman story he actually likes. Now you have to listen!
