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.
We continue guest host month as Andrew is joined this week by his brother Nathan Young. This team-up isn’t a first time thing for them as they co-host Geek Hard’s Youtube series FUN FAIR, a show that’s pokes fun at pop culture. But there’ll be no poking fun here. Instead, we’re popping claws to dig into The Death of Wolverine!
The Death of Wolverine is a four issue miniseries by Charles Soule and Steve McNiven released in the Fall of 2014. “Logan has spent over a century being the best there is at what he does…but even the best fade away eventually.” Wolverine’s healing factor has burned out. He doesn’t have long to live because of it. This is the perfect time for his enemies to strike. And strike they do.
Many names and places from Wolvie’s past appear in the series. There’s also a number of scenes where the ol’ Canucklehead gets to go stabby-stabby on some of his biggest foes. But was it a fitting “end” to a character we all knew was going to be back? Or was it just a cash grab (because we all knew that Wolverine was coming back)? Find out as Andrew and Nathan do a deep dive into this miniseries on an ALL NEW Back Issue Bloodbath. We’re the best we are at what we do and what we do is read comics!
