They should make GL Hal. That way they can tie him in with Hank Henshaw. Pilots and such.

Ferris Air has already been mentioned so yeah I'm thinking it'll be Hal.

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

I just saw that on CBR and had to come here and see what kind of reaction it got from you guys. I'm getting more and more tempted to check this out. Espcially since I appear to be one of the few people here who actually really liked the show. Did Brian Q. Miller ever write for the show?

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

As usual, you guys have me psyched up to catch up on my reading. I was heartened by the comments Admiral Kirk made about how Lana is being handled, specifically by her own comments. And I'm really psyched to return to the 31st century.

Man, it's a shame that it's taken a digital comic (and a truly gifted writer behind it) to finally make this show what we waited for so long for.

Thanks for the info.
Do we know yet if they are going to go the Buffy route and do a big "season finale", and then come back with a renumbered "Season 12"? Or is it always going to be "Season 11"?

They're heading for the season finale territory known as the Crisis.

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

@JD we're still fairly early into the season, Miller is treating each arc as an episode of the season so we've got a long while yet to go so I wouldn't compare the structure to the Buffy comic because they're doing that as a traditional comic. I say there's a good chance though we'll get a season 12 next year...but so far we're only around episode 7 or 8.


Finished reading #46 and I agree with what Admiral James Kirk stated above, but it looks like Q granted my wish and undid Kryptonite Woman!

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

I was wondering how they were structuring the "season". It makes sense to do whole arcs as "episodes" rather than each invididual issues. I just looked and Comixology says the individual issues are about the same length as a standard comic, but I thought these kinds of digital comics were usually shorter than regular comics?

Four digital issues = one issue of the print book.

Yeah, two pages of the digital comic are stacked to make one page of the print book.

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

Also the trade for volume one "Guardian" just came out at the end of last month and deals with Hank Henshaw and starts off this wonderful ride so you might want to check it out or pick it up.

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

I'm pretty much 100% digital, so I was just going to get the first couple arcs that way when I start it.

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

I just finished reading Smallville: Season 11 #47 not sixty seconds ago and I'm already yappin' about it! What can I say? It's been several weeks since I've read the last chapter of Argo and sadly I can hardly remember what happened in it? When there's a delay between issues and we get the fill ins I really need to do myself a favor and reread those issues before resuming the narrative. Anyway enough of that noise, on with the review!

This issue Superman and Supergirl are reunited. We get a bit of a recap of Supergirl's final appearance on Smallville and then learn about how she arrived in the future and what she's been doing since. It's actually a lot of fun how the Kryptonian's aren't the scumbags in this story. Earthgov is. They're always been a bunch of xenophobic twits and in Argo they're at their twittiest. I mean what kind of moron government would pick a race with a race of Supermen and leave North Korea out of it!

As far as the character's go I love Kara's place in this story and I love her part in the fight between Earth and New Krypton. It promises to be quite dramatic while still being tons of fun. There's a lot of chuffah with the Legion on New Krypton that leads to a fun little cliffhanger involving Supes and the Kryptonians that I hope doesn't play out as a retread of Season 9s Zod plotline.

The artwork is kinda meh in this issue. Clark and Kara look like generic character designs rather than looking like Tom Welling and Laura Vandervoort. I can get past the weak character art but it's difficult because the cover art captures Laura's likeness perfectly.

By and large I liked this issue though I really feel at a disadvantage because I fucked up and didn't catch myself back on the story before starting. Not Bryan Q's fault. All my bad! Looking forward to where this story is going! Smallville: Season 11 is my crack!

I needs me another fix o' the good stuff!

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

Smallville time! Smallville: Season 11 #48 was a fun little read today that really advanced the story in a meaningful way. We spend some time with Superman on New Krypton and find out what the war between Earth and New Krypton is really about. It is not really the race war that it appears to be on the surface. It's really a religious conflict that's emerging in a most surprising way. See these Kryptonians don't worship Rao (sorry Admiral Young) they worship...

Well that would be telling wouldn't it? Let's just say that they worship somebody that they really shouldn't and leave it at that.

At least until next week?

How 'bout the non-Superman portions of the story?

Well they're not too bad at all actually. We finally get to spend some quality time with Booster Gold. Booster's chomping at the bit to get his flight ring reactivated so he can get back into action but...

Brainiac ain't havin' none o' that. But he's not being a bad guy about it. He's quietly encouraging of Booster's heroic inclinations while making it clear he won't furnish him the technology to rejoin the fight on the Legion's level. Of course he might not have a choice because everything's crumbling all around them the galaxy over and every Legionaire from every point in time and space is being recalled for the awful war that's coming.

Spine tingly dingly, I dare say!

Not much more I can say about this issue. It was short and sweet and makes me really look forward to next week.

Brian Q. consider me your willing test subject!
