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

Oh how I love this comic...why is it when the show is OVER we get the awesomeness that we are getting NOW? Oh boy what an issue.

Sam Lane in "Smallville" isn't the diabolical hardlined general he was in the DCU comics prior to the relaunch. He seems to be a good man who just takes his duty very seriously and is in league with questionable people...Luthor? I believe the New 52 Sam Lane collaborated with Lex as well, as did the Secret Origin version. It was the DCU version that hated Superman with a passion and didn't like Clark. That doesn't seem to be the case with this version. I could hear Michael Ironside voicing this dialogue.

Lex and Tess...yeah Admiral James Kirk I agree with regarding the memories. As you say, fantastic tying it in with the Summerholt plot. Oh and the end...with the drones...oh boy. BEST SEASON EVER!!!

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

Oh, I have to say that while I was skeptical at first...the art has been fantastic. Everyone looks great and the likeness of most of the characters is intact...my one problem is that I still don't see enough of Tom in Clark/Superman...but that's okay.

I see enough Tom in the comics Clark. Didn't see enough Tom in the television series Superman though. Ah well, Brian's making it up to me now.

Miller should bring Knox back for the comic and make him Vandal Savage for real this time.


I would love to see that; I greatly enjoyed Dean's one-ep stint, and kept hoping they would bring him back as Savage in name, especially after Rosey left the show. He would've made a great replacement nemesis for Clark in Lex's absence.

I'm still behind everyone else in my reading, just finished #2.

Does that mean that this Clark has more than just three facial expressions?

Now, now it's not Tom's fault he has the emotional range of a cantaloupe.

That may be generous, but I'll go with it!


I think I'm going to log into my Comixology account and read #3 now.

Thanks for that! I'll probably remain an issue or two behind you and Admiral Young, but I've greatly enjoyed reading your posts and knowing that this series keeps getting better.

Issue 3 was good, but seemed a bit short to me. Am I wrong about that?

Ahhhh thanks, I appreciate that. This series has been a really splendid surprise. I never had any pent up hatred for the show but I also never regarded it as anything more than disposable entertainment.

Who knew a comic based on the show would actually be really good?

It's hard to tell. I read the thing panel by panel on Comixology so it always seems too short to me.

Same here, it's a little different than reading a physical comic would be. And I haven't been able to find the printed versions anywhere, so the digital issues are fine with me. I may stockpile a few right before vacation to take on the road.

I need to get a Kindle Fire so I can stop reading these things on my laptop.

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

Well, I didn't find the Fire to be all that user-friendly; I tried that, a Nook Color and an Ematic, and decided that none of them were a good substitute for my laptop. OTOH, I greatly enjoy my Sony e-ink reader. Easy to use, fits nicely in my hand.
