The Atomic Fallout Society: Episode 74 - Speculator's Paradise

Brian Smith and Tony Sabal drive this week's show as David Sabal is away on special assignment... if you consider porn research special assignment. Anyway, Tony declares his seal of approval for Mark Waid's Daredevil as comic book near-perfection in terms of story and character. The fact that Waid makes Daredevil a "front-and-center" character is one thing, but this week's issue has a little bit of everything: interesting plot, funny moments and an ending that will throw you in a loop. Brian reviews the newest DC title, Justice League of America and it's debut issue. It sets up things to come that will affect not only the JLA, but the Justice League as well... wait, aren't they the same group? No... which is why you'll have to tune in to find out what Brian says.

Lastly, it's Tony's turn to introduce a new segment to the program, the Speculator's Corner. Now, Brian isn't a big fan of speculators, you know, the ones who buy comic books looking to make a fortune, but Tony wants to point out how wacky of a concept it is but also how fascinating. Case in point, this week Tony discusses the latest Image Comics titles that have seen their values multiply astronomically over the last couple of years and why this is the case. Hopefully, this will give you a better understanding of why certain comic books are costing some people a down payment on their mortgage and some are just plain busts.
