Smallville Season 11 Comic: Where Do You Buy It?
The Smallville Season 11 comic book series is here, with the first digital release coming on Friday, April 13. Each digital "chapter" will sell for 99 cents, and then three chapters will be bundled together with bonus "episode guide" material for a monthly printed comic book, the first issue of which hits stores on May 2.
The first "episode," as revealed on the KryptonSite Spoilers Page, is titled "Guardian."
Digital comics "chapters" will sell for 99 cents each and the printed issues will go for $3.99 at your local comic shop. (Some comic book shops offer discounts, so you might be able to get it even cheaper!)
With thanks to Bryan Q. Miller, who posted instructions on his blog, here are a few ways you can get the digital comics as soon as they come out:
- On a tablet device or smartphone, you can purchase Smallville Season 11 using either the DC Comics or Comixology apps.
DC Comics iTunes app / DC Comics Android app
Comixology iTunes app / Comixology Android app
Once Friday rolls around, some browsing should make it easy to find the SV Season 11 comic, as well as many other recent great comics.
If you don't have a tablet or a smartphone, you can still read Smallville on your computer at Comixology.com! You'll have to set up an account, which is free, but beyond there the purchasing will be the same as with the apps - 99 cents per issue.
If you're like me and would like to have a print copy in your hands, you can go to your local comic book shop on May 2. Most stores put out new comics on Wednesdays. It wouldn't hurt to tell your local comic book shop owner that you are interested in Smallville so he or she is sure to pre-order it for you. If there are no stores near you, there are some online comic book stores including Midtown Comics and TFAW.com who should be able to meet your needs.
WHAT NOT TO DO:
Do NOT illegally download or torrent the Smallville Season 11 comic book. A project like this relies on legitimate sales to prove itself as a profitable venture for DC Comics. If people aren't purchasing it legally, the comics will end. At only 99 cents, there is really no excuse NOT to pay for them, and big sales will tell DC "hey, we want this stuff!" and it would hopefully mean we'll have many, many more Smallville comics to come.
If you're new to comics, this might be a lot of fun for you, as you're entering Superman's world right as Superman - who we knew as Clark Kent for so long - begins on a new and exciting journey!
