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.

After a brief hiatus, Back Issue Bloodbath‘s Creator Spotlight RETURNS! This week, we take a look at the works of a writer who’s made his mark on the comics world for the past two decades: Jason Aaron.

Originally discovered during a Marvel talent search in 2001, Jason Aaron has had success at Marvel, Image and Vertigo with gritty stories filled with heart. These days, he’s mainly associated with Thor, but he’s left an impression on a number of characters. He’s had memorable runs on Wolverine, PunisherMAX, Ghostrider, Doctor Strange, Wolverine and the X-Men, and even Star Wars. He’s also produced memorable creator-owned stories like The Other Side, Scalped, Southern Bastards and The Goddamned. The guy’s written some Conan stories as of late too. He knows his way around a bad-ass story. Aaron tells tales about tough guys with heart. That’s tough but fair.

Join Andrew and Sammy as they dissect some of the works of Jason Aaron. We give much love to his Punisher and Wolverine runs. We also show great respect for his beard. If you want to hear more about Aaron’s comic contributions, give Back Issue Bloodbath a listen. It’s good times. You don’t have to take my word for it. Listen right now! Just click the button. You can thank me later.
