Episode 105 - El Halloween Magnifico Extravanganza

It's Halloween, and The Atomic Fallout Society has got some treats for the masses. Or is it a trick? Brian kicks things off with the much anticipated Sandman Overture by Neil Gaiman and J.H. Williams III. Fans have been waiting for the return of Dream of the Endless. Does the title score as one of the tops or does it fall flat? Diaper, aka Chris Lilagan, brings us a tale from Hellraiser courtesy of Boom Studios. Hellraiser 2013 Annual #01 from Clive Barker, Mark Miller and artists Janusz Ordon, Jesus Hervas. The creative teams bring us two separate tales of terror from the forgotten horror franchise. David finishes it off with the title that made him sick for the first time in Atomic Fallout history; Crossed Badlands #40 from Avatar Press. The team of David Hine and German Erramouspe continue the mayhem of Crossed in Crossed Badlands. Did it go too far, or was it just the story that pushed David over the edge?

The boys finish up the Halloween Special with a look at the Horror genre in comics and discuss what does make a Horror comic and what makes a good one. Brian educates us on a little background of the old comics code, and the boys give a last minute treat by plugging their choice for best comic based on Halloween. What is it? Find out?

It's The Atomic Fallout Society, TRICK AND F'IN TREAT!

The boys are back for more please...? The show kicks off with Brian bringing another Image #1 to the table in Pretty Deadly from the creative team of Kelly Sue Deconnick and Emma Rios. It's a fantasy western and Talent's ready to blow your mind.

Dave brings in another nostalgia piece in the new Samurai Jack comic from IDW and Cartoon Network. Samurai Jack and the Threads of Time #1 from Jim Zub and Andy Suriano.

Episode 103 - Mister Smith Educate Us Some Sandman

Atomic Fallout Society RISE UP! Episode 103 kicks off with David reviewing/spoiling a book from Boom Studios in IMAGINE AGENTS #1 from creator Brian Joines and artist Bachan. In over 100 episodes, he still hasn't figured out how to review properly...

Brian rebounds the reviewing with LETTER 44 #1 from Oni Press and writer Charles Soule. Chris gets downgraded from Nozzle Lvl to Funnel Lvl by decree of Professor Smith. He makes up for it by bringing to the table Rogues' Rebellion #1 from Flash writer/artist Brian Buccellato and artist Patrick Zircher.

And in the main event, Brian takes on the biggest task given to Educating the Masses... Neil Gaiman's Sandman. Will this acclaimed series be too much for The Talent to handle or will he educate the masses once more? Tune in and find out. The Atomic Fallout Society is here!

Episode 102 - Atomic Fallout Reboot Time! Let's Talk About Sex!

It's a brand new day for The Atomic Fallout Society. Off they are going... as the former Captain would say. With no voice of reason to steer the ship, will the new Atomic Fallout Society crew be able to lead the way? David brings us Shaolin Cowboy #1 from Dark Horse Comics and sees a series that has potential. The new Filipino Chris brings us the shortest review in Atomic history in Rocket Girl, but don't worry, he has a VERY special hazing review by the end. Brian again tackles a Superman title, but this one was highly anticipated, Superman/Wonder Woman #1. Does the Beard of Steel like this romance comic for the man of steel, or will it spell doomsday for Superman and Wonder Woman's relationship? The boys round it off with a birds and bees talk in comics and ask the multi-million dollar question... is sex in comics a good thing?

It's THE Atomic Fallout Society... still two Filipino strong, but with that new podcast smell...

Episode 101 - Goodbye Mr. Sabal... For Now

A new era begins for The Atomic Fallout Society with episode 101 as Tony Sabal announces his temporary departure from the show to tend to other business and personal matters. But let's face it, 100 shows will do that to you. But not to worry as our good friend Chris Lilagan steps in to join the AFS crew on a regular basis.

For this show, Tony, Dave, Brian and Chris all participate in what turns out to be a more "raw" version of the AFS. Chris leads off by reviewing the latest Green Lantern that starts off the "Lights Out" storyline. Chris is a BIG Green Lantern fan... and needless to say, this issue leaves a bad taste in his mouth. Not a good way to start off your AFS run. Tony's final review for AFS (for now) is Captain America: Living Legend # 1. Solid story that even has the feel of the Captain America movie. Brian reviews Hinterkind... it's a DC Vertigo book, so it's going to be really, really trippy. Lastly, Dave reviews THE Star Wars. This isn't the Star Wars that you're used to. This one was based on George Lucas' initial rough draft of the story, so it's going to make your head explode... like Dave's. As a final sendoff, Tony asks the AFS crew, what have we learned from Marvel Now and any other items that we have learned from the new DC 52?

The Atomic Fallout Society... wait until you get a load of what's in store for the next several shows.
