As long as we get some good Clark/Lex banter I will be all over this.
That's a definite advantage to a novel; it's not limited to cast availability the way the series is.
Despite never having watched Smallville
until the finale, I'd be curious about a Smallville
novel. I love BQM's run on Batgirl
, and if his Smallville
work is similar, I'd be interested.
I am a little disappointed that DC isn't taking a page from IDW (with Angel
) and Dark Horse (with Buffy
) and doing a "season 11" Smallville
in comics. But I'm told that the Smallville
comics published nearly a decade ago didn't sell well (the trade collection isn't even in print any longer), and even back in the 80s the Superboy
tie-in comic wasn't much of a success. (One oddity with the Superboy
comic, by the way -- DC didn't have likeness rights to the actors, so even though the stories took place in series continuity, the characters looked like their DCU equivalents.)
