Sorry about the technical difficulties last week.  This week G2Factor will discuss Smallville Season 11 digital #10, Action #11, Action Annual #1 news, SDCC news and … all things Superman.

If you haven’t gotten it already, this is the icon to look for when purchasing and downloading Smallville Season 11 #10.

Another exciting chapter of GUARDIAN by Bryan Q. Miller with interior pencils by Pere Perez and digital cover art by Cat Staggs!  A special HELLO to Bryan & Cat who are at SDCC 2012 this weekend.

Be with G2Factor on Sunday,July 15th at 5pmEDT/4pm.  We’ve got 2 weeks of things to say!!!  Live chatroom and live streaming available.  Downloads after the show on iTunes and talkshoe.

While reading Action #11 by Grant Morrison, besides realizing he’s populating this book with tons of Silver Age characters; Lois’ niece, Susie, may have some concepts of a character in the pre-Flashpoint/new52, known as the protector of the DCU.  No, not Pandora. That’s new 52 crap.   Kismet.  She appeared not only in the Death of Superman story but also in the Dominus/King of the World story arc (both with Dan Jurgens contributing).   She appeared as a young girl much like Susie.  Here are some panels from Superman v2 #138.

Remember in the new 52 Superman book written by Jurgens, we know Clark is experiencing alternate realities.  In Superman v2 #183, Kismet disguised as a young girl tells Superman (who is married to Lois) that he is existing on four separate planes.  And we know that Morrison enjoys writing on different time lines.  Why not boost that with alternate realities?  Especially if the Superman book is being micromanaged and Jurgens is not able to tell the story he wanted to tell before being taken off the book at #12 (September, 2012).

A good idea should not die because of editorial.  “One life spread across different places in time and space, all occurring simultaneously.”  Notice that Kismet is green and has a universe of stars, planets, galaxies throughout her body.  Now look at Susie in Action #11.

Susie is wearing green and has the universe in her eyes.  Coincidence?  Lois wishes she could stop thinking about her friend Clark who has ‘died.’   Precocious Susie reminds her auntie her name is not Suze.  “Don’t worry, Aunt Lois.  You’ll be okay.  You won’t be sad for long.”  In this issue, we know Clark has taken on another identity.  Fireman Johnny Clark.  As Superman, he actually screams Lois’ name when she is injured.   An iconic moment for all Superman fans.

New readers cannot appreciate what are in the panels of Action #11 if they have no history of what came before.  The history gives the story depth and connectivity.  In a DC panel at SDCC, a fan stated she missed the history, Geoff Johns admitted, “I actually kind of agree, since we don’t have that timeline laid out now, that’s something we’re all moving towards and trying to build the depth.”  Morrison is not known for his depth.  You’ll get characters and concepts thrown in and MAYBE he’ll tie them in at the end of the story arc — whenever that may be.

October Solicits came out week before last.  Action Annual #1 was announced.  Sholly Fisch will be doing the main story for that issue.  BUT in a very controversial move, Max Landis, son of director John Landis, will be doing another story in the book.   Hollywood Kid Landis wrote the movie, Chronicle and on the day of its release, he uploaded a YouTube video about the Death of Superman.  Fifteen minutes of disparaging Superman especially and the entire DC Universe cast of characters.  We will definitely be discussing this matter on Sunday!   It’s not the first time DC has hired people to work on the new 52 Action who publicly have denigrated the character of Superman.  Rags Morales, anyone?

Should be a lively show!  That and all the SDCC news and rumors, too.   Might have to take some vitamins.


If you don’t recognize the above panel, run to your computer or smart device and purchase the digital first Smallville Season 11 #1 (see purchase and download link below for more info).  This is the REAL Superman.  If you’ve never bought a comic or if you’ve never seen an episode of Smallville, you will have no problem understanding what is going on in this Superman story.   THIS is the book you can read, or you can read to your kids, or have them read.  Everyone can enjoy it’s uplifting tale of an alien farm boy saving the world.  He’s just doing his job.  It is short but then it is only part of a 12 issue arc.  Each digital first issue is available weekly (Friday) and only 99 cents in the US.

Issue #1 remains the Top Selling Digital Comic on Comixology (digital comic central).  Help to make comics history and save an industry!  Purchase each week.  It’s the future and you get a great story, too.  Let’s also keep in mind purchasing the print (3 to 4 digital first) compilations to see how this book sizes up against the more traditional competition.

Here’s G2Factor’s show regarding the first issue:  Smallville Season 11 #1.  Available on iTunes and talkshoe.

Issue 2 will be released on April 20th.  BE SURE TO PURCHASE AND DOWNLOAD YOUR DIGITAL BOOK ON FRIDAY.  Available through your DC Comic app or Comixology app on your devices or by going to the DC Comic website or Comixology website.   Issue 1 was released early, 9:30 am EDT, last Friday, so maybe it will be again.  Cause a frenzy for this Superman story!

SUNDAY, April 22nd, G2Factor will talk about Smallville Season 11 #2 at 5 pm EDT/4pm CDT.  This the second installment of the ‘episode’, GUARDIAN.  There are rumors we’ll get to see Clark Kent doing every day things with Lois Lane, his fiancee.  The extraordinary and the ordinary makes Superman a unique character.

IMPORTANT!  If you’re interested in the compilation print books (and we recommend getting both versions if possible), please inform your local comic book shop because they are NOW ordering their books for May and Smallville Season 11 first print book is due out May 2nd.  Start a pull list that way the shop can set aside the issues you want — and you might get a discount, too.  Check their policy for pull list benefits.   Information in finding a local comic shop or a web based one are in the link above regarding purchase and download or the pull list link.


Every week (Sunday) we will be reviewing the latest Smallville Season 11 digitally released the Friday before.  YAY!

Superman Comic by Keith Giffen and Dan Jurgens to be released April 25th (Wednesday).  It appears Helspont has possessed Superman.  No mention of other characters in the PR synopsis.  Hopefully Superman can get Helspont to shut up in this issue. Oy!

May 2nd (Wednesday) is when Smallville Season 11 print version arrives.  So put it on your pull list now so it’ll be there for you then.

May 5th (Saturday) is Free Comic Book Day.  Pandora story will be featured in Justice League.  Also some Superman Family Adventures mentioned for this special book.

June 7th Erica Durance’s (Smallville Lois Lane) Saving Hope will premiere on NBC.

June 7-10 is the Superman Celebration in Metropolis, IL.  So far we know George Perez will be there.  He wrote the premiere story arc for new 52 Superman.  The TPB of that will not be available until November. (Boo, DC, another fail.)  We’re excited about meeting him.

June 12th  (Tuesday) Superman vs the Elite will be released on DVD.  Based on Joe Kelly’s Action #775, “What’s so Funny About Truth, Justice and the American Way?”  Can’t wait!
