Smallville Season 11's first DIGITAL (not print) issue hits April 13! Here are some details on how you can purchase it!
Okay, so that headline involves a little bit of trickery.
The official DC Source blog tonight officially announced that a Smallville Season 11 comic book series is coming from DC Comics - and it will be written by fan favorite Smallville writer Bryan Q. Miller!
This had at one point been rumored, but in novel form... but no, this time we'll get artwork.
Here's DC's press release, from that site:
Smallville Fans Rejoice! New Comic Book Series, SMALLVILLE SEASON 11, to Pick Up Where Show Left Off
Fans of the smash-hit TV series Smallville haven’t had much to cheer about since the show ended its critically acclaimed 10-year run on The CW last May. That’s all going to change with the upcoming new comic book series from DC Entertainment: SMALLVILLE SEASON 11. Written by former Smallville show scribe Bryan Q. Miller, the new digital first series will be published digitally on April 13, 2012, with new digital chapters released weekly thereafter. Additionally, the online chapters will be offered in a print periodical, along with an episode guide to the hit television series, with the first print issue released on May 2.
The new comic book series picks-up where the show left off (with Clark officially now as Superman!) and features other fan-favorite characters including Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, Chloe Sullivan-Queen, Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, and General Lane. The book features an all-star creative team – in addition to Miller, SMALLVILLE SEASON 11 creators include print cover artist Gary Frank (SUPERMAN SECRET ORIGIN), digital cover artist Cat Staggs and interiors by Pere Perez (BATGIRL).
“Six months after Clark Kent donned the cape and took to the skies to save Earth from Apokolips… enter Season 11!” enthuses Miller. “New allies abound! New enemies afoot! And old friends return where they’re least expected! Pere and colorist Chris Beckett have done a fantastic job of capturing the look of the show and the players, and Gary and Cat are knocking it out of the park on covers. I couldn’t be more excited to help give seasoned viewers and new readers an all-access pass to Clark’s first year in the cape.”
UPDATE: More details from TV Guide:
- It's Clark's first year as Superman, and "he's riding the high of everything working out so far. And he enjoys that he can stop and shake hands with folks after he saves them," Bryan Q. Miller says.
- It won't be smooth sailing for the new Superman. "Most people are thrilled that Superman saved the world by moving a planet out of the way, but Lex and a handful of others are concerned that there's a guy out there who can move planets," Miller told TV Guide.
- The series will be an ensemble book with Clark at the core, except now he is Superman. Characters in that ensemble are listed above.
- Chloe and Oliver are still married, and Chloe is going by the name Chloe Sullivan-Queen.
