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 Bloodbath, Sammy’s back! We bid farewell to guest host month and welcome back Sammy Younan for some fun comic book analysis and shenanigans. He returns just in time to join Andrew for a look at Cover, a miniseries from the minds of Brian Michael Bendis and David Mack!

Released under the Jinxworld imprint (Bendis’s creator-owned line at DC Comics), Cover is the story of artist Max Field and his unlikely entry into the world of espionage. Who better to be a spy than a comic creator? They travel around the world to conventions on the regular. It’s an ordinary practice. And that’s why Max is the best choice for a job in the intelligence community. It’s an incredible tale with some amazing artwork that stands out as some of the best that Mack has ever produced.

Join Andrew and Sammy as they look at this miniseries and discuss the reinvigoration of Bendis’s career. There’s even talk of Brian’s near brush with death! It’s all waiting for you on the latest episode of Back Issue Bloodbath. This mission, if you choose to accept it, is to listen to the episode RIGHT NOW! Don’t blow your cover!
