There will be no G2Factor on Sunday as the new readers in our group are disheartened and disgusted by DC Comics treatment of their beloved characters.
G2HARDCORE on Saturday, October 18th at 5pm ET will address the following:
Metaphors used in the fauxmance’s last issue
The humiliation of Lois Lane and her fans
The cynicism and the dudebro mindset of the new 52
The usual stuff.
Here is one thing on the agenda:
Nothing like insulting Lois Lane fans and telling them their money is not needed for Superman sales.
All those brainy females are ugly and freaks. Nice message, DC Comics.
The Silver Age is gone, right? Guess not. Welcome to the Age of Superdouchery.
Livestreaming and chat available. Wish to comment during the show, please go into chatroom. Also podcast is available on iTunes and talkshoe after the show.
Beware, HARDCORE can last 4.5 hours. The place to be is talkshoe.com Show #97368
You will not find the above panel in the new 52 Doomed arc, but if you’d like a synopsis of what happened in the previous Doomsday arc, issue Action 692 has it and more. Let us enjoy Lois Lane and her men, Clark Kent and Superman.
This weekend May 17 & 18, we will be having two shows.
G2HARDCORE on Sat at 5pm ET, Tej and Holli will be discussing Doomed #1, Action #31, and the fauxmance #8. And maybe Future’s End #2 which is reported to have Lois Lane in it, too. We may be wearing hazmat suits if the previews were any indications.
G2FACTOR on Sun at 5pm ET/4pm CT, we will be discussing Smallville LANTERN and maybe SUPERBOY. Plus any new 52 news.
Unfortunately for both shows and Superman fans, SUPERMAN UNCHAINED was moved AGAIN. This time to May 28th. The more they put this book off the more we get worried that Snyder will have changed his story to accommodate Lee and the direction of the new 52.
Live chat and streaming at both shows on talkshoe. Also downloads available after the show on talkshoe and iTunes.
Hope to see you there!
On Saturday, April 19, G2HARDCORE talked about the difficult and controversial subjects regarding comic books, comic book fandom and the comic book industry:
Why do some males threaten violence towards females when they express an opinion? Especially on the internet and especially about comic books.
Why fans should keep the pressure on Jim Lee to finish SUPERMAN UNCHAINED? Don’t let history repeat itself.
MAY! The month of shuffling storylines, timelines and comic book release dates.
Superman fans, are you mourning the cancellation of Adventures of Superman series?
The time jump in Fauxmance #7. What could it mean?
Why can’t DC Comics with all its experience accomplish a major event in the new 52?
Join Tej and Holli for this marathon show. Available on iTunes and talkshoe.
G2FACTOR is proud to announce a special segment on April 12th Saturday at 2pm EDT. G2: HARDCORE will feature Holli and Tej discussing specific Superman storylines and the comic industry behind the scenes from fans’ points of view. This Saturday we will be analyzing the book that shall not be named, otherwise known as the fauxmance. Confused about timelines involving the Superman stories? Tune in Saturday to see if we have it figured out.
On Sunday April 13th, G2FACTOR will still be on at 5pm EDT/4pm CDT discussing ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #50, SMALLVILLE LANTERN #5, and SUPERBOY #30 plus the JUSTICE LEAGUE animation episode IN BLACKEST NIGHT. As well as whatever else happened through the week that is Superman related. Join Chris, Kimmie, Tasha and Holli for the same lively talk.
Live chat and streaming for both shows at their respective times. Downloads available on iTunes and talkshoe after each show.
Sunday, February 23rd at 5pm ET/4pm CT, G2Factor will be talking to Josh Elder, author of Scribblenauts and Wednesday, Feb 26th’s Adventures of Superman #10 Dear Superman (in print).
G2Factor is currently supporting a campaign to get Adventures of Superman #10 into your local Childrens’ hospitals or Childrens’ departments of hospitals. To find out the hows and whys — here is a post we did on OSCK, our sister blog. Be Superman
We’ll also be discussing the current Adventures of Superman story as well as Smallville ALIEN by Bryan Q. Miller.
THERE’S EVEN MORE!!! Be on board with the Superman: Lois Lane #1 tweet-a-thon scheduled for Monday, February 24th from 7pm to 9pm ET. Use this hashtag: #GoLois Let’s get DC Entertainment (Comics) to take notice! WE CAN DO THIS!
Don’t forget to buy Superman: Lois Lane #1 and Adventures of Superman #10 at your local comic shop on February 26th. If you can’t get the prints, definitely get the digital versions also available that day.
As always, there is live chat and streaming with downloads available on iTunes and talkshoe.
Hope to see you there this Sunday!
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.
One of the best Superman arcs in the new 52. (There haven’t been that many.)
G2Factor reviewed Action 19 through Action 21 along with other assorted books. What could have been with this dynamic creative team of Andy Diggle and Tony S. Daniel!
PLUS — we covered all Man of Steel news and are highly anticipating its opening this Friday, June 14th in the US.
Be sure to listen to our MAN OF STEEL SPECIAL + Superman Unchained #1 this Sunday, June 16th at 5pm EDT/ 4pm CDT. Also, we will be talking about the incredible out of continuity, digital first books: Smallville Season 11 and Adventures of Superman.
