Yep. My mistake. I was confused. It happens when you're sick, yes I'm using this as an excuse

Batman and Robin: Knew Damian was faking. Predictability aside, the issue was pretty good. Wrapping up the flashback was probably the best part.

Green Lantern: Sinestro is pretty much the main character of this book right now, it seems. I'm cool with that, considering how Hal has been written lately. It looks like the lantern books are building up to another mini crossover. Also, awesome that we'll get some info on the Indigo Tribe next month.

They should just rename the book "Sinestro" or give Thaal his own ongoing.

Yep, that's happening. I guess it worked for Buffy. I'm happy to see the Batgirl creative team back together!

Look! No red undies!

DC does remember that their last Smallville ongoing comic failed right?

Still it gives Bryan Miller another comic job. Guy is underrated. He should be writing TT or Superboy.

This one is different as it continues the story as opposed to the previous one which was trying to play catch up with stories a year or so behind where the show was at. I can see why this one would be more successful. Plus, not helping matters was people asking the question: why pay for a comic when you can watch the show for free?

The last one lasted two years. All things considered, that isn't that bad.

I read Green Lantern: New Guardians. I like the idea of a team made up of all the corps.

I don't think you understand. They are doing the comic clearly in hopes that people who watched the Smallville show will hop over and buy the comic. But given how the Smallville comic failed, I think it's given that the overlap between people who are fans and watch the television show and people who are fans and will buy a Smallville comic are minimal.

No, I understand perfectly. What you are not getting is that there were other factors at play when the previous comic was released 9 years ago which lead to it being discontinued after two years that are not present now.

However, this comic is clearly a different beast than the previous one to the point where DC thinks that it will be successful enough to warrant it.

Just because something didn't quite work before doesn't meat it will never work. Just look at how many times Star Trek comics have been cancelled and then started up again.

I'm kind of disappointed they didn't stick with the novel they were gonna do...but as I said in the other thread I'll pick this up. Happy that Bryan Miller is back writing.

So instead of a monthly floppy, it's a weekly webcomic? That pretty much means they know it's not going to do well and are only experimenting. Note that Marvel/DC attempts at webcomics have been notably low-key with low volume sales (the Beyond Justice League, movie tie-ins etc)

Just because something didn't quite work before doesn't meat it will never work. Just look at how many times Star Trek comics have been cancelled and then started up again.
Thank you for making my point.

I don't think they're doing this with sales in mind, the first series is eleven issues weekly...they're doing this as a niche project for a very specific fanbase. I think you're making too big a deal about this House of UIster.
