SUNDAY, March 11th at 5pm ET/4pmCT, G2Factor will be discussing this penultimate issue of Grant Morrison’s Action initial story arc.
For those of you who haven’t read Superman #6, you might want to since it explains A LOT of what is going on in Action #7. Morrison’s version is the attention deficit disorder, acid trip while Perez’s style succeeds in character origins and plot used as a way to show character growth. Apparently, readers are to examine closely Morales’ art for clues into what’s happening or might be happening. If it wasn’t so damn ugly the majority of the time, it would probably be a more satisfying story.
Superman reappeared in DCU Online Legends’ penultimate issue. Still a possibility that Lois may return to live again along with the other dead JLA members. BTW, Marv Wolfman did not write the issue where Lois died (#14).
Superman also showed up in Dan Didio’s OMAC book. Mostly used as a drive-by plot reference. Apparently there is dating in the OMAC book, but the Co-Publisher won’t allow Clark and Lois to date since he sent the continuity marriage into a black hole of DC history along with their previous Earth 2 marriage.
Possibly more about James Robinson’s Earth 2, but it’s probably not worth our time since it involves yet another Superman we won’t recognize. And there’s no Lois. She’s used as plot device to make our hero miserable and upset (can’t say dark & angry). This ‘different’ Superman doesn’t sound like one we would enjoy. And how is a Superman without Lois Lane involvement a different concept in the new 52? It boggles the mind.
We’ll explore more helpful hints on how to get your Smallville Season 11 digital first comic on April 13th, a Friday. We all have different devices so we’re checking the ins and outs of making those WEEKLY purchases. That includes tips for international fans as well.
Things are revving up for Free Comic Book day (May 5th) and Superman Family Adventures (May 30th). BUT FIRST, May 2nd, a Wednesday, the compilation print version of Smallville Season 11 will hit your local comic book shop. BE THERE! They could be sold out by Free Comic Book Day that following Saturday.
Smallville Season 11 sales both digital and print should be so mind boggling that DC will have no other choice but to brag on them and FINALLY release those digital sales statistics. We know Smallville fans can do it. So spread the word. Maybe even convert some Superman fans to this version of our hero.
