Picture yourself in a boat on a river with tangerine trees and marmalade skies . . .
Nope, no Lucy or Lois in this one. But we gots Lana and multiple timelines, alternate whatevers, and just a hodge podge that would make Renton from Trainspotting feel at home while the dead baby crawls on the ceiling.
Sunday, December 9th, at 5 pmET/4pmCT, G2Factor will discuss Grant Morrison’s Action #15. Villains, villains EVERYWHERE.
But, one good thing . . . MXY!!! Mxy is back in the comics!!! And he has another trick up his sleeve. We all know that, right?
Lois made the Action #18 cover and Tony Daniel says she’s one of his favorite characters — she shares the cover with others. Still love it! Some news about the solicits for March, 2013, bringing another crossover for the Super books including present time Action. Cat Grant made the cover of Superman #18 before Lois Lane did . . . surprised?
Are you getting a wee bit disenchanted with it all?

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.
Sunday, October 14th at 5pmEDT/4pmCDT, G2Factor will discuss the latest installment of SMALLVILLE SEASON 11, #19 of DETECTIVE.
Clark and Batman are trying to protect Joe Chill while fighting Prankster and Mr. Freeze. Will we see Lois, Lex, and Otis? Will Steph!Babs help save the day? Can’t wait for my weekly fix of the REAL Superman in SMALLVILLE SEASON 11.
Also, we have TONS of New 52 news about Superman in his various storylines and books. More news from NYCC such as Scott Snyder and Jim Lee are going to be involved with a yet-to-be-titled new Superman book. Not sure why the secrecy.
Andy Diggle and Tony Daniels will be taking over Action Comics with #18 (March). And will there be a new 52 version of A death of Superman?
