Episode 97 - Speculating With A Special Guest

This week, we welcome Jacob O'Neal from the Gorram Nerd Hour as he sits in for David Sabal. Jacob helps out by reviewing a Hellboy title... but this isn't your typical Hellboy title, and it doesn't end well.

Brian Smith reviews Collider # 2... whoops, the Federal Bureau of Physics or whatever it's called from now on. Anyway, it doesn't affect the story overall, so you might want to pick this one up.

Tony Sabal reviews Batman Inc. Special #1. Yes, Batman Inc. isn't quite over, but how can you turn your back on Bat-Cow? Is it worth reviewing even though the Trinity War is over? Tony also discusses various topics in the speculator's market like original comic art. Is it worth the investment? Maybe if you have a LOT of money? Also, does controversy and/or changing your title name affect speculation? Better yet, how about them 3D covers that DC is planning in the month of September? Tune in, but we make no guarantees that you'll make any profit listening to this show.

The Atomic Fallout Society... forever evil... really evil.

Episode 96 - Trust Us... This Is Episode 96

First of all, this is Episode 96. Despite what you may hear in this episode, we had a serious brain fart, and this IS episode 96. Dave is out this week and may be out for some time, because he apparently lost the ability to walk in step... stay tuned on that front. In his place, we replaced him this week with another Filipino in order to maintain the majority, and that Filipino is Chris Lilagan!

Chris starts his indoctrination by reviewing the 2nd issue of Batman '66. It's not bad for the first review, but according to Brian, it's not his first attempt at an AFS review. Tony reviews... or tries to review that latest Daredevil issue from Mark Waid. Just pick up this title... period. Brian reviews the 1st issue of Batman Beyond Universe which also includes the Justice League Beyond team. Very solid book. This week also brings us the latest Educating The Masses, and this week, Brian introduces us to "Flash: Rebirth". He's more than just a really, really fast guy as there's more to the Flash than meets the eye.

The Atomic Fallout Society... fighting the man by making sure Filipinos dominate this show.

Episode 95 - Who's The Mystery Guest?

The gang's all back, BUT who's with them? Doesn't matter, 'cause the mystery guest just stepped into the AFS Zone, which means that there's a car crash waiting to happen. Bet he'll think twice before asking to come back. By the way, today's secret word is "Gail Simone".

The reviews start off with Tony TRYING to review the newest Marvel spectacle called Infinity. Despite Brian and Dave's tactics, this title has a promising beginning, but we said the same thing for Age of Ultron, and look what happened. Dave reviews Gail Simone's Red Sonja. Dave liked it... for the nice T & A. Brian reviews Gail Simone's Batgirl. This time, Batgirl find herself in the sights of the Gotham P.D. led by... her father. The family get-togethers aren't going to be joyful this holiday season for the Gordons. And we finish off by interviewing our mystery guest... he's still here, so that's a good thing.

The Atomic Fallout Society... who's behind the curtain?

Episode 94 - Variant Covers: A Speculator's Fools Gold

One episode closer to 100, and the guys review nothing but debut issues this week. David reviews from Frank Miller... huh?... Robocop: Last Stand #1. Knowing Dave's disdain for Frank, this may be an interesting review. Brian reviews the latest from DC/Vertigo, Jeff Lemire's Trillium, and it harkens back to some classic Vertigo vibes. Tony reviews Sidekick from J. Michael Straczynski. Ever wonder what would happen if a popular sidekick loses his main guy? You're about to find out. Lastly, Tony discuss the latest in the Speculator's Corner and why variant covers probably aren't the best way to speculate on hot comic books. Also, find out what past Marvel comic book may be on the rise, especially if rumors are true about the upcoming X-Men movie.

The Atomic Fallout Society... there's only one variant, and that's good enough for everyone.

Episode 93 - Why, Grant, Why?

The much-hyped finale of Batman Inc. hits the stands this week. The same creator that killed off Batman's little boy finishes off his run with this climax, BUT is it worth it? Or will we just shake our fists at Grant Morrison for this lame ending to this title? Tony harkens back to a long-gone era with the debut of Captain Midnight, and Dave goes even further by reviewing a title first created by Alan Moore by the name of Tom Strong. If the guys aren't careful, this episode could be the death of them. Dave also catches us up with the latest industry news and fallout from this year's San Diego Comic Con.

The Atomic Fallout Society... we're still trying to figure out Grant Morrison.
