Smallville Season 11, it"s happening...

...in comic book form.

http://dcu.blog.dccomics.com/2012/02...lle-season-11/

Short list, digital first chapters then collected once a month in print. Starts in April, with the first print issue in May. Cover for digital #1 is cool though.

Not sure how I feel about the whole thing yet.

Is it canon?

No.

Canon (In this context) means Tv or (sometimes) Movies.

Books and comics don't count.

Some of the books made while TV shows were running were awful and quickly became ridiculous before the tv heads off to unexpected places.

Sometimes a writer will say THIS IS CANON! about a book they just wrote, but Jeri Taylor was just being an ass, venting all the girl bollocks the boys club wouldn't let her plaster all over Voyager.

The Star Wars Universe, for a while there, everything was supposed to be the same continuity., but they have to have given up the ghost on that now what with Clone wars into it's 4th season.

But Rockne S. O'Bannon said those post-PKW Farscape comics were canon.

He can say that.

But when/if some asshole gives him 20 million dollars to make a new Farscape movie, exactly how much attention to the comic is he going to pay when writing and casting the new movie?

It's a question of control.

I mean, did Lucas say that you really had to see the Clone Wars Cartoon to see how palpatine was kidnapped by the sith, before every bugger sat down to watch Episode III?

Rockne has a lot of control right now, but that always isn't going to be the case.

It looks like DC took the story down, but here's Bleeding Cool's report.

But you know for a fact that's never gonna happen (even those announced webisodes never took off, and you can't stop the cast from aging), just as there will be no more live action Smallville.

Ever.

That really depends on the franchise in question. There are franchises that do count their side products (comics, tv/games (depending on which is the main product), etc.). Perhaps Smallville would be one, especially considering where the story stems from.

More importantly, since there's zero likelihood of any further filmed Smallville, there's no chance that the comics continuation would ever been overridden.

In the first issue Clark loses his powers at the same moment Pete Ross returns. Is it really his old friend or a new menace?

I don't think we ever got that good of a look. Since it was based on the Superman Returns costume, I guess one could assume that there were the red trunks.

Then again, it isn't the first time that Smallville retconed something.

Re: Smallville Season 11, it"s happening...

This was originally going to be a novel when it was first reported that this would be happening. Interesting that they decided to go the comic book route. I'll probably check it out...and Broc is correct, we didn't really get a clear shot of the suit in the finale to determine if there was no red undies or not.

They used the CGI maps from Superman Returns I believe. He was wearing red trunks.
