G2FACTOR: WHOLE LOTTA SUPERMAN OR NOT?

SUNDAY! July 1st at 5pmEDT/4pmCDT G2Factor will discuss Smallville Season 11 digital #9, Superman Family Adventures #2, Superman #10, and Justice League #10.  

Whole lotta Superman going on?  Maybe . . . maybe not.  It will take four books to find out.  Daunting?  Probably, but then we love the Big Blue Boy Scout so we don’t care.

Join us in the live chatroom or on live streaming.  Downloads available on iTunes and talkshoe after the show.

Don’t forget to start your pull list for Smallville Season 11 at a comic book selling store (local or web).  Order numbers are the measure of whether or not a print comic does well or not.  If you want the best version of Superman from DC Comics, then support this book any way you can.  It’s a bargain with 30-36 pages of story plus episode guide for $3.99.  You don’t get that with other DC Comics books.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 4TH — Light your fireworks and get your copy of Smallville Season 11 print #3.  If you don’t have a pull list (and get your comics handed to you), look for the first cover above with Superman and Lois.

Other Important Dates:

No Smallville Season 11 digital on July 6th.

July 13th – Friday the 13th, a lucky day for Smallville Season 11 digital #10

July 20th – Friday, Smallville Season 11 digital #11

July 25th – Wednesday, Superman #11 and Superman Family Adventures #3

July 27th – Friday, Smallville Season 11 digital #12

August 1 – Wednesday, Smallville Season 11 print #4, the episode GUARDIAN’s final book.

Hope to see you Sunday!

G2FACTOR: SMALLVILLE SEASON 11 #8

On Friday, June 22nd, Smallville Season 11 digital #8 will be released.  Have your apps and webpages ready.   Will Clark meet with the military and General Lane in particular?  We’re in the middle of Act 3 of the 4 act episode of GUARDIAN.

Chapter #7 topped Batman #10 for the #1 spot of  Top Selling Digitals sometime on June 20th, print comic book day.  On Thursday, June 21st, it was still going strong moving from 4th to 3rd in revenue sales.  For a 99 cent price point competing against $3.99 print first digitals, that is amazing.  Smallville Season 11 is The Little Comic That Could . . . and does.  Can’t wait to see what #8 will achieve after its debut.

On Sunday, June 24th, G2Factor will discuss the latest issue by Bryan Q. Miller with art by Pere Perez.  Lively talk will begin at 5pmEDT/4pmCDT with live chat and streaming.  Downloads available after the show on iTunes and talkshoe.

For those of you who missed it, or didn’t want to listen to 4 hours of us talking.  Here’s the nearly 2 hour exert of our May 13th Bryan Q. Miller interview.  We covered all the bases from questions about Smallville the Series to Smallville Season 11 to Batgirl to doughnuts.  See if you can find some clues about episode 2, DETECTIVE.  We really appreciate Bryan’s sense of humor and cordiality.  Thanks, Bryan!

So join us as we enjoy reading a truly great Superman comic book.  Hope to see you there!

G2FACTOR: AW YEAH! SUPERMAN FAM ADVS #1 & SMALLVILLE S11 #6

SUNDAY!  June 3rd at 5pmEDT/4pmCDT, G2Factor will talk about the premiere print issue of Superman Family Adventures AND the digital-first Smallville Season 11 #6.

Superman Family Adventures is for EVERYONE (including grownups or forever-kids).  Like Smallville Season 11, this comic written by Art Baltazar with art by Franco brings back the joy of reading comics.  This former Tiny Titans team gives you a good time.  Buy this book!  It’s for you, the munchkins in your life, and even for your pets.  Lex Luthor, the greatest criminal mind of our time, is present and he’s intimidating the citizenry of Metropolis.  Sounds like a job for . . . . .SUPERMAN!

Action packed Smallville Season 11 digital #6 will give you the thrills of Clark Kent being Superman while unveiling more of the newly conscious Lex Luthor’s evil master plans for Hank Henshaw, Superman, and the world.   If you haven’t gotten this digital download yet, you’re truly missing out.  Bryan Q. Miller is catapulting us through this story making us scream for more!  Pere Perez’s art captures the action, facial expressions and vivid emotions Smallville fans are used to on their television screens.  Readers have said they wished this chapter was done in live action — it’s just that good!

Wednesday, June 6th, get Chapters 4-6 of GUARDIAN of Smallville Season 11 (#2) in print.  It’s important the print version of this book is successful as these numbers are an important measure in the comics world.  At $3.99, you get at least 36 pages of story (more than any other monthly comic) and the continuation of the Smallville television series episode guide.  More bang for your buck.

We’re very excited about these books.  Join us on Sunday on live chat or streaming or download the show on iTunes or talkshoe.

For those of you who have no experience in trawling through boxes of back issues at comic shops, Action #775, What’s So Funny About Truth, Justice, and the American Way? is now available in digital on your comics apps or comixology.com website.  Written by Joe Kelly, it’s the basis for June 12’s animated DVD Superman vs. the Elite.  A one-shot comic, you’ll enjoy how relevant this story is NOW as it was then.  Superman is a true blue hero in a world of anti-heroes.
