We're a week past the "Demon with the Atomic Brain" premiere and the latest film has been thrilling Mihmivites old and new with its mix of action, adventure, humor and scares! Critical reception has been almost universally positive with many hailing it as the best Mihmiverse film yet!

In honor of the release of the film, we have finally made a "Demon with the Atomic Brain" lobby card set available! Mihmiverse lobby cards are produced in VERY limited quantities and, with writer/director Christopher R. Mihm's favorite print shop having gone out of business on October 1st, we don't anticipate any NEW sets after this one. Therefore, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND picking up these unique collectibles while they're still available!

Personally designed by writer/director Christopher R. Mihm, lobby cards are sold in sets of eight 8.5" x 11" cards. Each card depicts a different scene from its respective film and are hand-colorized and stylistically "weathered" to look extra retro!

To grab a set of "Demon with the Atomic Brain" lobby cards, click HERE!

In other cool news, to celebrate the 12th Mihmiverse film in 12 years, writer/director Christopher R. Mihm has created a 12-month, full-sized Mihmiverse 2018 wall calendar with each month containing a different lobby card image from each of the 12 Mihmiverse films! This calendar will be released in EXTREMELY limited quantities (less than 100 will be produced) and, once they're gone, they're gone forever!

In this very thorough and entertaining episode, host Derek M. Koch is joined by Mihmiverse super fan Steven Turek to journey through the movies. Derek met MKR listener Steven at Monster Bash, so they catch up for a moment before diving into their discussion. Afterward, you'll hear from three Monster Kid Radio regulars—Rich Chamberlain, Jeff Owens, and Stephen D. Sullivan—who attended the premiere and got together afterward to share their thoughts on the film with Monster Kid Radio.

Even if you're only a casual fan of the films of Christopher R. Mihm, we highly recommend listening to the entire episode, even if just to hear what Derek and Steven thought of each film! To listen to the episode, click HERE!
