G2HARDCORE: THE DEGRADATION OF THE SUPERMAN CHARACTERS

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

G2FACTOR: New 52 #17s, JLA #1, & SS11 #35

G2JLA1A17

Sunday, February 24th at 5pmET/4pmCT G2Factor will be discussing a myriad of comic books besides our digital-first, Smallville Season 11 #35.  This week Action #17 was late (probably due to Morrison getting an additional issue), Supergirl #17 gave us a fight between the Maiden of Might and Wonder Woman as well as a Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen appearance.  (Now why can’t we get that in Action and Superman?).  Justice League #17 (fish out of water story).  Also interesting developments in Wonder Woman #17 (Orion apparently went to the Guy Gardner School of Romance) and a #1 issue of Justice League of America (Go Steve Trevor!!!).

Plenty to talk about including how we basically are feeling regarding Superman storylines and the comic book industry generally.

Hope you’ll join us.  Live chat and streaming during the show.  Downloads on iTunes and talkshoe after the show.

G2FACTOR: SMALLVILLE S11 #24, SFA #7 & SUPERMAN #14

dec2show

SUNDAY, December 2nd at 5pmET/4pmCT, G2Factor will be discussing three versions of Superman.  Bryan Q. Miller’s Smallville Season 11 digital #24, Superman Family Adventures #7 by Baltazar and Franco, and the new 52 Superman #14 by Scott Lobdell.

Lots of stuff going on this week within the panels and behind the scenes.  The new 52 still remains a war zone on all fronts which is getting tiresome.  The fauxmance bullship is destructive not only to icons but to fanbases as well.

A beacon of hope on the very first page of Superman #14 though.  Which we will hold on tightly to through these dark and dreary embattled months ahead.

Thank God! for Smallville Season 11 and Superman Family Adventures, the only two books about Superman, G2Factor recommends being on your pull lists.  Support these books as they are a joy to read.

Live chatroom and streaming during show.  Downloads available on iTunes and talkshoe after the show.

Hope to see you there!

G2FACTOR: 3 nu52 & SS11 #23

Sunday, November 25th 5pmET/4pmCT G2Factor will discuss Red Hood & the Outlaws #14, Justice League #14, Supergirl #14 and Smallville Season 11 #23.  Superman appearances in every single one of them.

There was a price discrepancy on the dccomics app on Friday for Smallville Season 11 #23.  Comixology attributed it to a clerical error.  Check your receipts to see what you were charged.  Smallville Season 11 is still 99 cents.  If you were charged something else, contact Comixology (not dccomics) and they’ll put it right.  They are fantastic to work with.

It doesn’t look as if Clark and Lois fans are going to get a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year, or Happy Valentine’s Day from the new 52.  Too busy pushing the fauxmance at us.  And the 75th anniversary for Clark/Lois/Superman is fast approaching.  Yea, we’re worried.  It’s currently standard operating procedure to kick Clark/Superman and Lois fans in the teeth in the new 52.

If you were one of the people who read a lot of the #1s last September (2011) then you might want to review Justice League Dark #1.  Xanadu is scanning the future and there are panels involving Cyborg, Superman and Wonder Woman in a battle with Enchantress.  This appears to be still in our reading future (possibly as a precursor to the Trinity War).  It does show the bullship was planned from the beginning.

I think it’s time to get out the puke buckets again.  BTW they still make those steel washtubs, you can get them at Home Depot in case buckets aren’t big enough.

SMALLVILLE SEASON 11 will continue to be our savior.  And SUPERMAN FAMILY ADVENTURES, our joy.

A glimmer of hope in Supergirl 14 (see above convo) that is to be continued in Superman #14.  But then we go into crossover hell with H’El and after that Helspont (confirmed in RH&TO).

Some good Clois tweets from writers who are writing future Superman books.  We’ll inform you of those.

Batman has been terrific in SMALLVILLE SEASON 11’s DETECTIVE and proved he’s the GD Batman in Justice League #14.  Do you think he’d appreciate a hug from us?

Join us on Sunday for our perspectives and opinions.  Live chat and streaming during the show.  Downloads on iTunes and talkshoe after the show.

Only 3 weeks before we get the trailer for Man of Steel film.  That would be where Superman and Lois Lane share a kiss.  CAN’T WAIT!!!

G2FACTOR: SMALLVILLE SEASON 11 #22

Sunday, November 18th at 5pmET/4pmCT, G2Factor will discuss the 22nd digital of Smallville Season 11.  The final chapters of DETECTIVE will soon arrive.  You can enjoy the print compilation the first Wednesday in December.  The #6 (October) print issue increased in sales orders numbers over September.  Bryan Q. Miller‘s exciting story is really heating up.

We can hardly wait to read these new pages.  Fire up your comic apps on Friday, November 16th for the anticipation of downloading this fantastic book.

The Little Comic That Could Is Doing It!!!

And now for something completely different . . .

G2Factor is offering to be your first line of defense with what DC Comics is doing with Superman in the new 52.

DC seems to be determined to keep new 52 Superman edgy and alien without relating to humans, particularly Lois Lane.  Clark has strong feelings for Lois but thinks she is unattainable and his love seems unrequited.  This from a guy who supposedly had a five year relationship with Ms. Lane before the start of Superman #1.  Now after the kiss in JL12, Wonder Woman is smitten and will consult with Eros about her feelings for the Man of Steel.  Another kiss cover will be displayed in February.

Superman of the new 52 doesn’t seem to have any responsibility where his feelings are concerned.  Is this a good depiction of the Man of Steel?

Despite the fact that the 75th anniversary is fast approaching, it appears as though Lois Lane will not be celebrating along with Clark/Superman.  If you find this a despicable fate, then allow us to do the dirty work for you.

Matt Idelson said he wanted fans to pine for Clark and Lois so intensely that DC will hear us loud and clear and allow the characters to be together.   The only way to make that voice known is contacting DC Comics with your respectful views and most importantly . . . DON’T BUY THE BOOKS.   This is where G2Factor comes in.  We will monitor the books for you.  You can PINE WITHOUT PAYING.  We’ll let you know if DC is finally getting a clue about the absence of Lois in Superman’s romantic life holding him back from being the hero generations have loved for 75 years.

Save your money.  Don’t have Superman, Action, Justice League on your pull lists.  G2Factor will check all books Superman and/or Lois are in and let you know how things are going.  You can listen to the shows as we do the research.  You can decide to buy or not buy at that time.  Don’t put hope in the dangling carrot.

In the meantime, we’ll continue reviewing and enjoying Smallville Season 11 and Superman Family Adventures.  These are the true Superman!!!  Smallville Season 11’s Superman is very much the Man of Steel.  He has restraint and is emotionally balanced.  He follows his heart.  He’s exciting to read.  And he’s younger than the new 52 Superman.

G2FACTOR: SMALLVILLE SEASON 11 #21 & SUPERMAN #13

ARE YOU REAAADDDDDYYY?????

Sunday, October 28th at 5pmET/4pmCT G2Factor will discuss SMALLVILLE SEASON 11 #21 by Bryan Q. Miller and Superman #13 by Scott Lobdell.  Two very different Clark Kents and Supermen.

Smallville Season 11 should prove exciting as we’ll see what happens to a Kryptonite compromised Superman and how he survives with the help of Batman and the love of his life, Lois Lane.

Superman #13 gave us the first Clark Kent/Superman in Metropolis story by Scott Lobdell.  He plotted Superman Annual #1.  Is there a difference between the two Clarks in these two books, too?

Grant Morrison will be putting 5 years of story in Action #15 through #17.  Morrison stated there would be a death of Superman story involved in his last arc.

While watching Andy Diggle interviews during NYCC, found out this information:

“I very much want to balance the extremely epic, massive-scale action heroics with the human side of Kal-El and Clark Kent too. I would like to see him explored a little bit more. And I would like to see his relationship with Lois Lane explored a little bit more in the New 52.”

 “I think that he feels a bit like a fish out of water, and I think Diana feels the same way, so to a degree, they feel like kindred spirits, which is not quite the same as his relationship with Lois.”

Black suit in Superman #0 appears in Action #18 and the H’El on Earth storyline between the superbooks spins into another crossover involving Action also.

This last clue is interesting as we saw this symbol in Superman #7:

It’s also significant that Helspont had an arc in the Superman book and told Clark in the Superman Annual #1, he knew Jor-El.  In Superman #0 we see Kal-El on Krypton (dressed in black) narrating the story of his parents and the discovery they were expecting him.  We saw the black suit again in Action #18 on Tony Daniel’s cover.   A Daemonite horn also appeared in Superman #0 as it did in Superman #1.  Helspont could be creating an alternate reality for Superman to exist in.

Could Superman, Supergirl, Superboy, and Action be going from H’El to Helspont?  Will this possible crossover lead to the bigger crossover in the Justice League, Justice League of America and possibly Justice League Dark known as the Trinity War?

Here’s the reason why we ask that question:

This appeared in the Justice League 6 backstory:

And more recently in the backstory of Justice League #13 the intro to Justice League of America:

So join us on Sunday as we talk about Superman in SMALLVILLE SEASON 11 and Superman #13.  Live chatroom and streaming available during show.  Downloads on  iTunes  and talkshoe.

Kimmie and Chris will be giving us their impressions of what is going on, as usual.

Tasha will have a new blog article on OSCK this week.

G2FACTOR: SMALLVILLE SEASON 11 #20 & OTHER SUPERMAN STUFF

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.
