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

Finished reading "Smallville Season 11 #60" back to "Olympus" and we open with a discussion between General Sam Lane and Director Bones about recent events that they're not happy with. Steve Trevor and Lois catch up and we get some interesting insight into Lois's past prior to her arrival in Smallville to search for Chloe. We also flashback again and Artemis and Diana are talking about Hippolyta and Trevor, before finally coming back to the present where Diana is working at a center for orphaned girls it would seem, this is where Clark finds her and reveals to her right away that he's the same person she encountered prior. Just a great issue. Lots of dialogue but fast paced as usual. Superman and Wonder Woman finally working together to uncover a mystery.

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

Two issues behind...in 61 it was revealed that Director Bones and Felix Faust were members of Shadowpact and that Faust and Bones are bound together sort to speak. The Smallville roster of Shadowpact is different from the comics version. Mister Bones was their commander back in World War II and John Zatara was a member as well. Batman provides Clark with this information. Faust demands that Director Bones bring Diana in. He needs her to free his master and is blackmailing him to do so. Which brings us to..

Smallville Season 11 #62. We are now halfway through "Olympus" as things are starting to heat up. The DEO and General Lane aggressively work together to apprehend Diana. Steve Trevor defies orders to protect Diana of which results in Director Bones disavowing him and issuing a burn notice. Superman arrives to save Trevor from a bullet and tells him to run, Lois is waiting for him in an alley. Diana has managed to flip General Lane's tank at this point as well, while Director Bones is getting agitated and impatient and demands that Diana bring herself in and the attack will cease. Superman hopes that Lane evacuated the city before bringing a tank into it, of which Lane assures him he did and that this is a presidential order and that Superman will find another way. Diana says she will submit if the D.E.O. will show her will her mother is. Bones replies that he will do just that. Meanwhile Faust makes a bloodspell that bounds him to Diana, he wants to know a location within the DEO...and that is where we end revealing Hippolyta chained in a holding facility...wearing a Wonder Woman outfit Q strikes again with awesomeness.

The format for the Smallville comic will be changing after the current arc from an ongoing to a series of minis.

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

Yeah, I believe this will only affect the printed version of the book though. I'm looking forward to both "Alien" and seeing the Smallville version of the Titans.

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

Hey guys, I am waaaaaaaaaaaay behind all of you with the current story. I seriously though I'd be able to catch up while in Maine, but have done little reading of any kind.

About to hit the long road home, so I guess I still have something to look forward to with Smallville! Just to let you know I'll be commentating when I can.

Minor spoilers in the below link...

TVGuide has posted a little bit more about the format change, including more about upcoming storylines and titles.

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

I wonder if they'll be starting the numbering over with each mini? They might have been afraid that the fact that they are now on #6X was intimidating people.

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

I doubt it that would be a problem. It's based on a television show and the series format has followed that formula so it'd be just like people jumping into a season mid-way through (or in our case...a third of the way through). There's no reason to renumber.

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

Being that I'm so far behind with this (and juggling reading two novels at the same time) I decided to go back and re-read Ish #57 to get into it again. I really liked the scene at the airport where Clark flew half-way around the world to retrieve the little girl's stuffed animal. A really nice touch, one that greatly humanizes the Superman character and at the same time, helps me forget what a douche Clark was through ten seasons of the show on TV!



Finally got around to #58 and was quite surprised by the fact that Lois and Steve were apparently once an item. Is there like anyone in the DC Universe she hasn't dated or hopped in the sack with? That surprise aside, it was cool seeing her and Diana work together as two hot, tough chicks against the flying monkeys from Oz, or whatever the hell they are.

Going back to 57 for a minute, I liked the subtle nod to continuity when Clark asked Senator Ma Kent about Connor; I had damn near forgotten about the fact that he was still in the picture! Kinda makes me wonder how long it'll be before he puts in a digital appearance. And on the same line of thought about continuity, I wonder (pardon the pun) if Q will acknowledge that Diana has apparently met Chloe (remember Chlo's line to Clark in S10 about the people she met in her travels?)

Good stuff. I'll continue to plug along in my attempts to catch up to you all.

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

We're getting the Teen Titans in an upcoming arc, so we'll see Connor fairly soon. You're actually not that far behind. 64 just came out yesterday so you're only a few issues behind.

Read the conclusion of Hollow and Lex still has a shred of humanity in him still, and it's pretty clear that as AJK stated to me, he has some feeling towards Otis. He's already acknowledged that he's the closest thing he has to an actual friend since returning, and he's right. Otis genuinely cares about Lex...probably like Clark, sees the little amount of good inside of him still that is dominated by the darkness.

Also I would say that Proc, you and AJK maybe right about Tess getting a new body or something soon.

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

Okay, now I know that both Admirals Young & Kirk will laugh at me when I say this, but I'm going to make the ultimate attempt later on this evening to totally catch up on my SV reading. Suffice to say, my life has been... Complicated, since my return from the wilds of Maine.

Seriously though, I just downloaded the last two issues to Lynne's tablet and I'm quite eager to got back to the Wonder Woman storyline. Not that I will probably have much to add to the commentary, other than to extend my praise to Bryan Q. and this extended version of the SV universe.

Later, Dudes!

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

Just read the last two issues (64 and 65) and this has started to drag on just a teeny bit in my opinion but still great. Faust has unleashed Lord Hades upon the Earth. Clark is vulnerable of course. Diana has rescued her mother from captivity in the D.E.O. Faust was blackmailing Bones for Hades. We get a bit of their past relationship in Shadowpact. Yesterday's issue saw Hades launch his attack upon Washington, D.C. and Superman go into action. He needs back up...as Hades launches his own army of dead. This of course sets up the moment most of us have been waiting for...Diana finally emerges as Wonder Woman to engage in the battle against Hades and Faust.

Not quite that far yet... So are you saying that Diana has basically been doing what Clark did for the better part of ten years, doing good deed without really having a public identity to go with it?

Going to try again tonight to catch up.
