The Atomic Fallout Society is here! The boys prep for some time off and picked a good time to get set for some big changes. They decide to revamp the format of the show with this being the last show they review the usual comics of the week, but they send off the old format with one last review with a twist. The boys talk about the current series you need to be reading right now. David kicks things off with his love letter to Guardians of the Galaxy, the one Marvel title that Dave says you should give a damn about. Chris gets a little bestial with Animal Man from DC, and Brian rounds things off with the one title you'd expect from the beard of Steel, Batman/Superman.

Just in time for the movie, does this Winter Solider title fill the missing gaps of the characters mythos? Talent rounds things up with the reviews with an Image #1, 'cause that's how pros like him roll. The Fuse #1 by Antony Johnston and Justin Greenwood. Law In Order in Space... does it work?

The boys are back, tired and high on sugar. Can they get through the show? It's the Atomic Fallout Society with David Sabal, Brian Smith, and Chris Lilagan! Brian kicks things off with Trillium #6 from Jeff Lemire and Vertigo Comics. It's a series that has caught the eye of the esteemed Professor Smith. How's this tale of time travel faring so far? David follows it up with a look at the All-New Invaders from Marvel Comics. Invaders #2 is brought to the table by James Robinson and Steve Pugh. This is re-introduction to a forgotten team. Can this be a sign of good things from Marvel Comics? David sets the table for Chris, who breaks the record of good comics for the past couple weeks with Swamp Thing. That's right, Swamp Thing from DC. Chris feels the title isn't as strong as it could be. Could the Green be losing some of its luster? The boys try to finish the show by looking at some breaking news of the day on the interwebs, but things turn ugly, and the boys finish the show feeling dirty and ashamed. Want to know why?

Dark Horse Comics continues the franchise trend, and Browncoats everywhere will be pleased as peaches with the continuation of the cult series. Dave finishes off with the final chapter of Damen Son of Batman. Andy Kubert's Elseworld title that brings back the son of Bruce Wayne to the masses has been received with lukewarm fanfare. What does the Instigator of AFS have to say 'bout the series? The boys finish things up with a small industry news segment after being surprised by the return of the old Captain, the Voice of Reason Version 1.0, Tony Sabal.

Episode 113 - Educate Us, Mister Smith
And now is the winter of our discontent... It's the Atomic Fallout Society. No karaoke this week, but the boys decided we needed to educate the masses. First though, David kicks things off with a Marvel review, BUT it's no ordinary Marvel title. Empire of the Dead #1 by THE George Romero hit the shelves. David contains his biases for his horror mentor and brings a new chapter to the Dead series of Romero. Is this another Walking Dead rip-off or is this another take on the genre by one of it's forefathers? Brian brings in Jack Hammer #1 from Action Lab Comics. Writer Brandon Barrows and artist Ionic bring a title of noir and intrigue. But something smells a little fishy in the waters, and the Talent enlightens us. Chris finishes up the reviews with Baddass #1 from creative team Herik Hannna and Bruno Bessadi. Is this a new fresh title from Dynamite Press, or is this just another comic in the vein of Millar World? The boys finish things up, well, Brian finishes things up with another "Educating the Masses" and dons the Professor robes to teach the public ' bout The Winter Solider story just in time for the 2nd wave of Marvel number one comics as well as the latest Captain America film coming soon.

Episode 111 - It's Time To Get Things Started...
The boys are back for the new year, and "Special" Kermit starts things off to an awkward start. The boys decide to welcome things back with a Marvel Now Celebration! Okay, maybe not so much a celebration... 5D, Christopher Lilagan, brings us Savage Wolverine #14 - Wrath #1. From creator Richard Isanove we get a Wolverine noir story. Does it live up to the hype? It's a Marvel title; what do you think? Brian brings us the return of writer Peter David in X-Factor#1. The team of David and Di Giandomenico should be a slam dunk for this title, or is it? David rounds out the review with Wolverine #13 - The Killable Conclusion. As you can tell, this doesn't look to pretty for Marvel so far. Can the new Voice of Reason bring balance to this small comic book podcast? The boys miss out on picking the brain of 5D 'bout his trip 'cause Marvel decided to leave the boys with a lot to say 'bout the upcoming Re-Marvel Now... This should be good, so it's time to hit our music, it's time to light the lights, it's time to get things started IT'S ATOMIC FALLOUT TIME! To listen, click here.

It's The Atomic Fallout Society, same Atomic time, same Atomic channel! 5D, Chris Lilagan, is out of town on holiday vacation leaving Brian and Dave to man the ship. Will they survive?! Who's kidding who? But don't worry, Dave's got one trick up his sleeve, or actually it's one man. The Captain returns! First, though, the boys have some reviews to do... Brian kicks things off with The Illegitimates #1 from IDW Press and SNL star Taran Killam. Let's just say Brian doesn't quite dig this #1 issue, and we find out more about Brian than we ever wanted to know... Dave brings in this week's big guns in Harley Quinn #1. The anticipated title from DC Comics about everyone's favorite crazy, clown loving, mallet wielding sociopath hit the shelves this past week from the creative team of Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti. Dave's apparent dream girl storms the DC 52 Universe in her own title. Will it please the masses? Can Harley's shorts get any shorter? In the 2nd half of the show, the bat signal is set off as the show can't seem to function without two Filipinos on board. So Tony, The Captain, returns. Did he return out of time after being shot by time bullets? Needless to say, he brings in a special Speculator's Corner in with TOP 5 Things to Get Your Comic Book Loving Geek... The boys throw a little debate towards the end by looking at another Top 10 list that begs the question: "What are the Top 10 DC story lines that should be turned into a film?"

This...is...the...Atomic Fallout Society (cue epic music)... Now that we got that started, lets cut to the chase! The boys continue bringing you the latest in comics and glory. Brian kicks things off with Dead Body Road #1. An image comic one part Punisher, one part Noir Film, all glorious revenge tale. Justin Jordon on writing duties and Matteo Scalera bring us another tale from Image Comics. Does it live up to Brian's standards? CTB brings us a little known comic from Marvel Comics, Nova #11. Will CTB earn his stripes and show that Marvel in Space is far better than Marvel on Earth? David bats cleanup and brings the anticipated Justice League #25. Why is it anticipated? It's the origin of Owlman from the Crime Syndicate, The Darkest Knight. With some twists and surprises will this Forever Evil tie-in keep the evil train rolling or is Forever Evil coming off the tracks? The 2nd half of the show, the boys react to the announcement of Jeff Lemire's finishing the Animal Man title next year in March with Animal Man #29. They look back at the critically acclaimed run that Lemire pulled off with one of DC lesser known heroes. Afterwards, the question of the day is asked, if you had the chance, what lesser known superhero would you write for and bring back from the comic book shadows?

After an extended hiatus, Atomic Fallout Society IS BACK! Brian, Chris, and Dave return in a new recording location, maybe future Abnormal Studios, and bring the hate and confusion. Three weeks have passed, and the boys waste no time but jump right into the deep end. Brian brings in Hinterkind #3 from Vertigo Press. Brian brought the 1st issue of Hinterkind awhile back, but does the title continue to roll, or does it stop dead on the train tracks? Written by Ian Edginton with art by Francesco Trifogli, a lot of comic trolls have accused this title of being Saga light, but what does The Beard of Steel say? Up next is Fluffer, aka Chris, as he brings the swan song of Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato from the Flash title, Flash Zero Year. Does this Zero Year tie-in to the team justice? Well in the end of everything Chris gained the title of C.T.B., want to know what that stands for? Up last is Dave bringing us another swan song to the DC writers pool. Geoff Johns' run in Aquaman comes to a climactic end in Aquaman #25. Did Johns fulfill his goal of bringing another low level superhero up a notch? Or did Dave find some holes in the ship that was Aquaman? Rounding up the last half of the show, it's Chris' 2nd chance of redemption at claiming the industry news segment of the show. The boys discuss what's been missed the last three weeks and finish up with thoughts on the latest casting choices for the next round of Superheroes and Super heroines.

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.

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 98 - Enter Sabal, Exit Sabal
This week, we welcome back David Sabal... and find Tony Sabal missing. Actually, he's off prepping for the big 100th episode, so we have Dave, Brian Smith and returning guest Chris Liligan back to review a very big week for comic books. Dave reviews the first issue of Marvel's latest storyline, Battle of the Atom, and they do a "retake" of Days of Future Past. You think the X-Men learned for time travel and the crap it brings? Chris reviews one of the Villain titles from DC, Justice League with Darkseid. We get a backstory showing the rise of Darkseid, which may lead to something bigger in the future for this Dark New God. Finally, Brian reviews the big one from DC, Forever Evil and the return of the Crime Syndicate of America. Lots of questions will start to be answered beginning with this one. With the return of Dave, we have industry news which will be interesting, since Tony's not around to make sure the show doesn't go to hell. The guys also go into a very important discussion of a very special indie project that's coming up... The Atomic Fallout Society... two more episodes to 100, so hang on for your dear life.

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... To listen, click here. To download, right click and "Save As..."

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. To listen, click here. To download, right click and "Save As..."
