Back Issue Bloodbath Episode 85: Kraven’s Last Hunt

This. Book. Is. Everything. One of my favourite comics. I am grateful my parents spent the time teaching me how to read. One of the last times Spider-Man would be baptized in darkness: he’s now Marvel’s gateway drug to seduce children and sell em bed sheets. Damn.

There’s so much I wanted to say…about where we are and where we’ve been: I just didn’t have the vocabulary. Damn.

Still here’s Andrew and I talking Kraven’s Last Hunt…thanks for listening. As always on Facebook you can like Back Issue Bloodbath and Geek Hard for more nerdery.

The Creative Imbalance Apperance

A recent gathering of prominent podcasters unfolded at Pacific Junction Hotel on a Sunday night (June 4, 2017) where Girth Radio Superstar Sean Sirianni holds court as the host of The Creative Imbalance.

He injected a number of the podcasters into his world including Andrew from Geek Hard. You can hear that interview at the 1 hour 15 minute mark.

(And following Andrew’s interview myself and another Girth Radio super star Alissa Santiago chat it up sharing the Tinder Date Tale.)

A good time was had by all…listen for yourself.

As Sean Says:
Just dropped a podcast EPIC featuring a handful of mini interviews with a plethora of other podcast creators and enthusiasts in the city. This massive episode is co-hosted with my pal Jenny Potter, and features personalities from, Fairy Tales for Unwanted Children Podcast, The Freeze hiphop podcast, Geek Hard, PodCamp Toronto, The One Sheet – Podcast, and Girth Radio! … show also wraps up with a sick brand new track from Eddy Scott Infante!


Writing: My Geek Hard Review of The Princess Diarist

So my Back Issue Bloodbath co-host Andrew and I were sitting in the Pacific Junction Hotel bar following a podcast recording when Carrie Fisher’s last book came up: The Princess Diarist.

I get the standard celebrity reduction means her death will be strictly Princess Leia; still Carrie Fisher was a fantastic writer. I mentioned so in my post Goodbye Carrie Fisher on her passing.

Thanks Andrew for the opportunity. Be fun to write more nerdness for Geek Hard.

Reading is FUNdamental: James Bond by Warren Ellis

My latest comic book spy thriller following Brubaker’s Velvet and Waid’s Black Widow…is Dynamite’s new James Bond series by Warren Ellis. You can listen to Andrew and I “Bond-ing” over this series in Geek Hard’s Back Issue Bloodbath Episode 61.

I’m a fan of double-crosses and double-agents…the morality of spies is just fascinating.

Back Issue Bloodbath 58: A Look Back At Alias

If you watched Netflix’s Jessica Jones Alias is the comic book source material. Nothing to do with Jennifer Garner show.

I enjoyed this series…28 issues only. If you got the time do the crime:

Back Issue Bloodbath 57: Wonder Woman by Rucka

As familiar as Spider-Man’s theme song…
“In your satin tights,
Fighting for your rights
And the old Red, White and Blue.

Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman.
Now the world is ready for you,
and the wonders you can do.

Make a hawk a dove,
Stop a war with love,
Make a liar tell the truth.

Wonder Woman,
Get us out from under, Wonder Woman.
All our hopes are pinned upon you.
And the magic that you do.”

Classic late 70s cheeze…that was then; this is now. Wonder Woman by Greg Rucka, Liam Sharp & Nicola Scott.
