G2FACTOR: SUPERMAN 11, SS11 #12, & SFA #3

Sunday, July 29th at 5pmEDT/4pmCDT, G2Factor will discuss Superman #11 (Dan Jurgens penultimate issue), Smallville Season 11 #12 (Bryan Q. Miller’s final chapter of the premiere episode, GUARDIAN) and Superman Family Adventures #3 by Art Baltazar & Franco.

Plus we’ll be talking about the latest interviews with Grant Morrison, Dan Didio and Jim Lee.  What we think that means for Superman fans as well as for the Man of Steel in the comics (and possibly in the film).

Join us in the live chatroom or on live streaming.  After the show, downloads are available on talkshoe and on iTunes.

Hope to see you there!



Join us Sunday, July 22nd as we discuss Smallville Season 11 #11, Justice League #11 and The Dark Knight Rises with its MAN OF STEEL teaser.

Hope to see you there.  Live chatroom and streaming.  Downloads on iTunes and talkshoe.


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.


Clark Kent dials 911. Somebody saaaave meeeee

Sunday, July 8th at 5pmEDT/4pmCDT, G2Factor will discuss Bryan Q. Miller’s Smallville Season 8 HEX, Action #11, and the latest news from the DCaU.  Some good, some worse.

Hope you all have picked up your Smallville Season 11 #3 print from your comic shop.   Digitals were on hiatus this Friday.  They will be back on July 13th, that’s right, Friday the 13th.

Bryan Q. Miller was to be on the Superman panel at San Diego Comic Con but now The Powers That Be have taken him off.  Bryan will be signing autographs from 2 to 3pm on Saturday.  Hope you’ll show your support for the BEST Superman book DC has to offer.

HEX:  Lois is always Lois even when Chloe wishes she was her.  Remember when Zatana and Oliver were blatantly flirting?

Action #11 actually has Superman saying Lois’ name and still has multiple time lines and introductions of even more Silver Age characters.

The new 52 is a universe where Superman ‘continuity’ must not exist.  It’s okay for Batman and pretty much everyone else, but not the Man of Steel.

Action annual #1 news:  Mixed.

Got an opinion about that?  Then join us on Sunday for a very lively discussion.


SUNDAY! July 1st at 5pmEDT/4pmCDT G2Factor will discuss Smallville Season 11 digital #9, Superman Family Adventures #2, Superman #10, and Justice League #10.  

Whole lotta Superman going on?  Maybe . . . maybe not.  It will take four books to find out.  Daunting?  Probably, but then we love the Big Blue Boy Scout so we don’t care.

Join us in the live chatroom or on live streaming.  Downloads available on iTunes and talkshoe after the show.

Don’t forget to start your pull list for Smallville Season 11 at a comic book selling store (local or web).  Order numbers are the measure of whether or not a print comic does well or not.  If you want the best version of Superman from DC Comics, then support this book any way you can.  It’s a bargain with 30-36 pages of story plus episode guide for $3.99.  You don’t get that with other DC Comics books.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 4TH — Light your fireworks and get your copy of Smallville Season 11 print #3.  If you don’t have a pull list (and get your comics handed to you), look for the first cover above with Superman and Lois.

Other Important Dates:

No Smallville Season 11 digital on July 6th.

July 13th – Friday the 13th, a lucky day for Smallville Season 11 digital #10

July 20th – Friday, Smallville Season 11 digital #11

July 25th – Wednesday, Superman #11 and Superman Family Adventures #3

July 27th – Friday, Smallville Season 11 digital #12

August 1 – Wednesday, Smallville Season 11 print #4, the episode GUARDIAN’s final book.

Hope to see you Sunday!


On Friday, June 22nd, Smallville Season 11 digital #8 will be released.  Have your apps and webpages ready.   Will Clark meet with the military and General Lane in particular?  We’re in the middle of Act 3 of the 4 act episode of GUARDIAN.

Chapter #7 topped Batman #10 for the #1 spot of  Top Selling Digitals sometime on June 20th, print comic book day.  On Thursday, June 21st, it was still going strong moving from 4th to 3rd in revenue sales.  For a 99 cent price point competing against $3.99 print first digitals, that is amazing.  Smallville Season 11 is The Little Comic That Could . . . and does.  Can’t wait to see what #8 will achieve after its debut.

On Sunday, June 24th, G2Factor will discuss the latest issue by Bryan Q. Miller with art by Pere Perez.  Lively talk will begin at 5pmEDT/4pmCDT with live chat and streaming.  Downloads available after the show on iTunes and talkshoe.

For those of you who missed it, or didn’t want to listen to 4 hours of us talking.  Here’s the nearly 2 hour exert of our May 13th Bryan Q. Miller interview.  We covered all the bases from questions about Smallville the Series to Smallville Season 11 to Batgirl to doughnuts.  See if you can find some clues about episode 2, DETECTIVE.  We really appreciate Bryan’s sense of humor and cordiality.  Thanks, Bryan!

So join us as we enjoy reading a truly great Superman comic book.  Hope to see you there!
