SUNDAY, April 1st, at 5 pm EDT/4pm CDT G2Factor will discuss Superman #7 by Keith Giffen and Dan Jurgens. And that’s no April Fool’s joke. Wildstorm’s Helspont makes his debut with the new 52 Superman. The Daemonite Lord is a talker. He out-talks Lex Luthor, and that’s saying something. But first he sent a biotech thrall to fight Superman in Metropolis. Rock ’em, Sock ’em.
Meanwhile back at the Daily Planet, we finally see Clark Kent sitting at his desk. Lois and Jimmy have some favors to ask. Perry White wants Clark to push Superman to the forefront. Unfortunately, there is no Pizzy in this issue. 😦 No Clois. No Pizzy. BUT Superman and Lois were in a panel together — but didn’t talk to each other. No touching either.
Kindle Fire owners got a real knock to the head and wallet this week. The pre-loaded Comixology app no longer includes ANY DC Comics for purchase. Amazon, Kindle Fire apps, and Comixology all have responded to users inquiries. DC Comics has not. Was it only just six months ago when Jim Lee, DC Comics Co-Publisher was touting the Kindle Fire in an exclusive deal? Guess that went south like Action Comics or OMAC sales. Meanwhile, real people who buy DC Comics digitally have gotten a raw deal. Oh well, they’re probably not 14 to 34 year old males anyway. So they don’t matter, right? Unfortunately for DC Comics, Kindle Fire users can get all the Marvel and independent comics they want on the pre-loaded Comixology app. Another great business move from the DC Boys Club?
Just two weeks or less until the debut digital-first issue of Smallville Season 11 comic release. Apple and Android users have an app for that. Kindle Fire and Window users can use Comixology.com website to purchase the digitals. Mark April 13th, a Friday, on your calendars!
May 2nd, a Wednesday, is when Smallville Season 11 gets compiled into a print book. Be sure to get it at your local comic book or online store. May 5th, the first Saturday, is Free Comic Book Day — check out Superman Family Adventures by Al & Franco.
In June, there’s the Superman Celebration in Metropolis, IL. We’ll keep you informed of who we’ll be seeing there. Also on June 12th, the release of Superman vs. the Elite. This animated film is based on Action 775 by Joe Kelly. “What’s so Funny About Truth, Justice, and the American Way?”
