Episode 62 - Welcome To The Digital Age... Mother F'er

The Sabal boys make their triumphant return to The Atomic Fallout Society and bring angst and rage with them. David Sabal starts off by discussing the much-anticipated AND rumored story run of Amazing Spider-Man. If you have been reading and believing what you have seen on the net regarding our favorite web-slinger, then either your wishes (or fears) have been confirmed. Tune in to find out what Dave thinks. Tony talks about the latest Hawkeye issue and it's good ole-fashioned and old-school Nick Fury/S.H.I.E.L.D. fun, but is it worth showcasing a character like Hawkeye? Hmmm...

Brian discusses the latest Catwoman and how it plays a part in the "Death Of The Family" storyline. Does it give hints to where this is going to end up? But that's only the tip of the iceberg for our professor as he goes on a rant...no, a RAMPAGE, regarding retailers who take a stand against digital comics. All we can say is that Brian is NOT happy.

The Atomic Fallout Society... wicked fun like good chowda.

Episode 61 - Tony, Exit Stage Left...

Tony has to leave early, so what does that mean? That means that Brian and Dave get to drive the show wherever they want it to go... stay tuned.

In the meantime, Tony still gets to make a review, and this week, he talks about the latest Daredevil: End of Days. Bottom line: Daredevil's dead, so why's everyone still talking about him? Brian talks about the latest title from Image Comics, Storm Dogs. Think Avatar when you are reading this one. Dave talks about the latest Earth 2 title from DC Comics. This ain't your typical JSA that they are slowly returning to the DC storylines.

Lastly, there are random subjects like what is considered Alan Moore's best work? Uncanny Avengers is delayed AGAIN, and Dave and Brian discuss their latest project that caused us to move this show to the weekend...

The Atomic Fallout Society... the secret to Obama's re-election.

Episode 60 - Higher Learning With The AFS...

This week, the guys review some really solid titles and books. In fact, this episode marks the first time where all three titles got high marks since Brian joined the show. First, Tony discusses A+X's first issue. If you loved the classic Marvel Two-In-One or Marvel Team-Up issues, you will enjoy this run. Just imagine some of your favorite Avengers/X-Men characters teaming up, especially after Avengers vs. X-Men but don't tell Dave about that. Speaking of Dave, he gives tribute to Joe Kubert, who some people would argue as being one of the most important creators in comic book history. DC Comics launches a special 6-issue tribute to Mr. Kubert, and Dave discusses his contribution to the industry. Lastly, Brian talks about Superman: Earth One, Volume 2, the follow-up to the acclaimed Volume 1 title. It's a different take on the Superman mythos and characters in this world, but it's a creation worth following...

The guys discuss the breaking news that the "Mighty Mouse" aka Disney has added the "Empire" aka Lucasfilm to their arsenal. What does this mean... more importantly, will we see Han Solo AND Donald Duck in the same storyline? Heads will explode with the possibilities on this one.

Lastly, the "Professor" Brian Smith teaches us yet again an important piece of work that all comic book fanboys/fangirls need to learn and live... this week, Mark Waid's Kingdom Come is discussed and dissected for study. This is a classic tale of superbeings faced with moral dilemmas that impact their world like never before... get educated on this classic title.

The Atomic Fallout Society... furthering education better than any politician could ever imagine.
