This past week, we read Action #22 written by Scott Lobdell. It was utter dreck. Clark would never use his powers for monetary gain nor should he ever state that he should punch first and often. Who is this poser? It certainly isn’t Superman. And is unworthy of our time and money.
We are enjoying the Jor-El and Lara backup story written by Frank Hannah. And both artists on the main and backup stories should be recognized for their good work.
However, with the upcoming new book in October (which shall not be named) and the current state of Action and Superman books, we will no longer provide a public service by reviewing the books for folks to know if they would want to read and buy them. We’re only human. This is painful for us since we truly love Superman and his 75 year long mythology, but DC Entertainment has tortured us long enough.
We will definitely still cover Smallville Season 11 and Adventures of Superman. Also Superman Unchained and Batman/Superman (until they make us ragey).
This link is our July 7th show where we discuss this decision, the comics, the absent comics, Man of Steel and WB/DCE politics. This is also available on iTunes.
Sunday, July 14th, we’ll be reviewing Smallville Season 11 #54, Adventures of Superman #11, Superman Unchained #2, MOS, and whatever pre-SDCC news there will be.
Many thanks to our followers.
On Sunday, June 23rd, G2Factor will be reviewing Adventures of Superman #8 and Smallville Season 11 #52.

Sunday, February 24th at 5pmET/4pmCT G2Factor will be discussing a myriad of comic books besides our digital-first, Smallville Season 11 #35. This week Action #17 was late (probably due to Morrison getting an additional issue), Supergirl #17 gave us a fight between the Maiden of Might and Wonder Woman as well as a Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen appearance. (Now why can’t we get that in Action and Superman?). Justice League #17 (fish out of water story). Also interesting developments in Wonder Woman #17 (Orion apparently went to the Guy Gardner School of Romance) and a #1 issue of Justice League of America (Go Steve Trevor!!!).
Plenty to talk about including how we basically are feeling regarding Superman storylines and the comic book industry generally.
Hope you’ll join us. Live chat and streaming during the show. Downloads on iTunes and talkshoe after the show.
