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, we take a trip to the Sportatorium for a hard hitting helping of indie comics! Longtime listeners of the show know that Andrew loves his wrestling……and Sammy has a very limited knowledge of “Sports Entertainment”. (Figure Four!) Last year, Andrew was introduced to a new indie comic that mixes his love of wrestling with his love of comics: Invasion from Planet Wresletopia.
Written by Ed Kuehnel and Matt Entin, with artwork by Dan Schkade, Invasion From Planet Wrestletopia is exactly as it sounds. A planet of alien wrestlers land on planet Earth, answer a television signal from 15 years prior. They confused the signal for a declaration of war. Now they’re here so their leader, Manifest Destiny, can fight the man who issued the “challenge”. The man in question is Rock n’ Roll Rory Landell, a washed up grappler who never really got his shot.
Andrew wrote a review of the first 2 issues about a year ago. A lot has happened since then, including the re-release of those issues with extra content. Join Andrew and Sammy as they go face to face in the squared circle and review the first 3 issues of the series. Andrew also chats with Ed Kuehnel about the series and finds out how it all began. It’s all coming your way in this “one fall to a finish” episode of Back Issue Bloodbath!
