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.

It’s another guest host week! In A Tiff Host Petula Neale returns to join Andrew in checking out the latest hero from the mind of Brian Michael Bendis: Naomi!

Naomi: Season One had a six issue run this past summer as part of the Bendis curated Wonder Comics imprint at DC. When a fight between Superman and Mongul crashes through a northwestern town, a local teen by the name of Naomi has some questions. These questions have to do with the last time a super human passed through her neighbourhood. They also connect to her own ominous origin and adoption. It’s a mystery! It’s an adventure! Stop, you’re both right.

This comic has all the trappings of a coming of age hero story in the DC Universe. Somehow, it finds a way to give all the usual tropes a new spin. Join Andrew and Petula as they take a look at this six issue comic tale written by Bendis and David F. Walker with artwork by the amazing Jamal Campbell. You’ll find out more about the DCU’s latest orphan! Always a crowd pleaser. Give it a listen on the latest episode of Back Issue Bloodbath.
