Cat Stagg’s SS11 cover
SUNDAY, October 21st, 5pmET/4pmCT, G2Factor will sing the praises of Smallville Season 11 #20. Our only regret, the cliffhanger showed up too soon. Are you buying this digital-first comic book? If not, why not? It’s loads of fun, action, emotion and suspense. It’s got the GD Batman!!! And a badass Lois. As well as THE BEST SUPERMAN IN THE DCU.
Other topics for this week: Justice League #13 including the JLA preview backup story, the Superman #13 preview pages that were in Supergirl #13, new behind the scenes of the tenth season of Smallville’s ICARUS (thanks to Chris & A), and other Superman news.
While reading Wonder Woman #13 (Path of War), a new character appears in the Antarctic calling himself “First Born”. Is there a connection to the Edgar Rice Burrough’s Barsoom (John Carter/Mars) series? The Greek god, Ares, was named Mars in Rome. Ares is the God of War and was prominent in Wonder Woman #0. Superman is not mentioned in this series (which is fine with us) despite the bullship in Justice League affecting the Superman series (which is not so fine with us).
Tasha posted an article on Multipleverses’ Superman Fans for Lois Lane blog about Action #9.
Holli has Superman related op-ed pieces on her blog, Baudyhallee Blog of the Moment, found here.
Everyone will enjoy Kimmie’s and Chris’ reactions to the latest Smallville Season 11 installment.
Hope you’re joining us weekly as we explore the many worlds of Superman. Live streaming and chat room available during the show. Downloads on iTunes and talkshoe after the show.
Batman comes to Smallville
Sunday, August 19th at 5pmEDT/4pmCDT, G2Factor will squee over Smallville Season 11 #13 and discuss Catwoman #12.
If you’re not reading Smallville Season 11, you aren’t reading the best comic book DC Comics has to offer. A digital-first that is always in the top 10 selling according to reveue and at 99 cents a chapter. See the REAL Superman!
The second episode of Season 11 is called DETECTIVE and we are introduced to Batman and his sidekick, Nightwing. Bryan Q. Miller had originally intended for that role to be portrayed by Stephanie Brown, but editorial decided otherwise (and rather late in the game). Barbara Gordon will be Nightwing, but she reads like Steph. “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” — William Shakespeare.
The digital cover icon was drawn by Cat Staggs and the interiors for the first three chapters of this episode are by Chris Cross. Smallville Season 11 is the only place you’ll be getting your Superman Batman World’s Finest fix. So get it!
Don’t forget to put Smallville Season 11 on your pull list. Let’s see it rise up the print charts.
Also we’ll be talking about Batman’s appearance in Catwoman #12. The Dark Knight Rises fans might enjoy what we have to say about that.
So join us on Sunday. Live chatroom and livestreaming. Downloads on iTunes and talkshoe.
Hope to see you there!
