This sequel was even more enjoyable than the first installment.
Aside from the pesky Jimmy Olsen, all the goofy characters from the first series were dropped in favor of adults. The Nazi survivors were not cartoon types, either.
Excellent layering of additional audio tracks. Gustav Mahler was a great fit.
Only hiccup I noticed was the abrupt edit at 72.21. That should have been smoother.
To modern audiences, accustomed to action explosions every five minutes, the pace might seem tortoise slow. Yet this does build character and was not boring.
While a childrens radio show, this was surprisingly dark, and somewhat geeky, with many references to atomic weaponry.
Artwork was fine, though images were available online featuring Atom Man.
Back in the 90s, I had listened to the original in a 7 CD box set. This edit is a choice distillation and easily recommended. Good to pop in for commutes.
Note to Siebener: There better be a part 3. I ain't saying why, I'm just saying.
