Episode 12: The Special, One Year Anniversary of TASK FORCE X!

Welcome back Squadmates!  And Welcome to our new listeners!  Glad to have you on board.

Well here it is... Episode 12: The Special One Year Anniversary Episode of TASK FORCE X!!

This episode we welcome an irredeemable guest host as The Irredeemable Shag from Firestorm Fan and The Fire and Water podcast joins us to talk about Firestorm #64 and Annual number 5...

What?  Is this an April Fool's episode?  Did we change podcasts without an alert?

No True Believers, we look at these two issues as our favorite Suicide Squad guest stars in these issues to take out public enemy number 1... FIRESTORM!!!!!!!!

Firestorm 64 vs The Suicide Squad

Firestorm Annual 5 and the conclusion to the Suicide Squad appearance.

Listen to this episode to find out what's going on!

Also, I review issue 4 of our regular Suicide Squad book.  It's entitled: William Hell's Overture, written as usual by John Ostrander and art by Luke McDonnell & Robert Lewis.
Suicide Squad issue 4

Then after that our friend Ryan Daly (of Dead Bothan Spies and the Secret Origins podcasts) joins us to talk about the recently released Suicide Squad trailer.

Listen in for our thoughts on what has been released.....

Also, everyone at Task Force X sends our regards to Paul Kupperberg (whom you'll hear more about in up coming months when we start reviewing Checkmate).  It appears that Mr. Kupperberg lost his brother Alan to thymus cancer on June 16.
You have our condolences Mr. Kupperberg and send you our best.

Also, I want to give extra special thanks to our newest squadmate, Willie Yarbrough, for his e-mail and iTunes review.  Welcome aboard Willie!  Please continue e-mailing us and let us know your thoughts.

And finally a little self pimping....
Not only can you find me on Task Force X and Head Speaks, but I am on the current, just released episode of Comic Book Fight Club podcast, where we pit The Suicide Squad against The A-Team. Who will win?
Who is the better group?

Take a listen and find out.

Also coming up in the next month or so, I will be appearing on Secret Origins episode 14 where me and Ryan discuss the Secret Origin of... The Suicide Squad.
Though, you should be listening to that show anyways (after mine of course) as Ryan is doing a great job covering this fantastic series!

Be sure to check the Facebook page for news and updates on the Suicide Squad movie.  That's where I tend to post information as it comes to light.

Thank you for listening.

Be sure to return next month and listen as we talk about Suicide Squad number 5!

Comic Book Fight Club!!!

In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team...

John "Hannibal" Smith vs Rick Flag
Templeton "Face(man)" Peck  vs Plastique
Bosco Albert "B.A." Baracus vs Deadshot
Howling Mad Murdock vs Captain Boomerang

What am I talking about????

If you like The A-Team or The Suicide Squad you definitely want to check check this out...

Look for and listen to Comic Book Fight Club for the answers.  Available soon!
