SMALLVILLE Will Continue With Season 11 In Comic Form

We had heard reports that the Smallville story would carry on with a series of novels, but now it seems an eleventh season of the show will take the form of first digital, then print comic books..

Last year Bleeding Cool reported that Bryan Q Miller would continue the tale of Smallville with "Season 11" novels, but now they have confirmation that it will actually be comic books. Apparently they will go out weekly in digital form and then collected monthly in print comic books. Art will be provided by Pere Perez, with digital covers by Cat Staggs. Here is his first one..



The digital Smallville Season 11 comic will begin from DC Comics on April the 13th, with the first printed collection on May 16th, with Clark Kent now as Superman, and the cast of Oliver Sullivan-Queen, Chloe Sullivan-Queen, the Lanes and the Luthors.


Interesting stuff eh? At least for Smallville fans - although something tells me its detractors might be checking this out too, at the very least so they can make fun of it if it's awful!

YEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!

THEY RUINED THE ENDING BY DOING THOSE CLOSE UPS AND GIVING HIM A DISTANT CG DOUBLE.

10 YRS AND THIS IS ALL WE GOT...

GUNSMITH - 2/9/2012, 2:31 AM
BUT I LOVED SMALLVILLE.

the writing might be better as well.maybe they can chop tom welling up (because he's acting is wooden) & use him for the paper that would be used to print the comic.
nikgrid - 2/9/2012, 2:51 AM
LOL The Doctor's got the right idea.
EdGross - 2/9/2012, 2:56 AM
demonhunter15, I don't think Welling has a choice in the matter. Usually in franchises you sign over your rights in terms of your likeness.

I'm actually psyched about this and it was something I'd hope they'd do. HATED the ending of the show, but this could be fun.

@Jimdlux RE "I just hope they don't have him in that ridiculous 52 outfit!"

You can see on the picture that there is no "red underpants" it looks kind of almost like the New 52 costume, with a gold belt instead of red.

I actually always wanted them to end the series and just continue the story in comic book form, comics aren't limited by budget (it costs just as much for an artist to draw a fight scene than it does for them to draw a conversation.)

bring it on! i hope they are good.

ENOUGH ALREADY
STOP TRYING TO FLOGG A DEAD DONKEY
SMALLVILLE S**t ON ITS FANS WITH THE FINALE AND ARE TRYING TO MAKE UP FOR IT WITH THIS COMIC

Kind of a slap in face for people like me who wanted the series to continue!
Ceejay - 2/9/2012, 4:44 AM
The show stopped being really good from season 3, season 4 onwards was a guilty pleasure but lost all sense of direction or basic common sense and the finale was utter trite!

This comic may satisfy some fans who still feel they need more Smallville, the rest of us can happily move on without it.
misner89 - 2/9/2012, 4:52 AM
lol the only true way to see welling in the suit
SuperSomething616 - 2/9/2012, 4:54 AM
Thats not the costume he wears in smallville...why are there no undies?

Bad contiunuity that!!!
Jolt17 - 2/9/2012, 4:54 AM
Should be OK. No pants, though? He had it the last time we saw him (also on the comic book Chloe read)...oh, whatever.
batfan39 - 2/9/2012, 5:12 AM
I was watching this show because I wanted to see Superman on TV... They already have several Superman Comics.... I don't see the point of this.
Maia87 - 2/9/2012, 5:19 AM
LOL this is a joke.
Facade - 2/9/2012, 5:22 AM
Ugh, cover suit looks likes 52: LAME!
CrowPirate1 - 2/9/2012, 5:35 AM
They finally show us a complete suited up Superman flying on Smallville.. and it's relegated to the comics?

So many seasons of foreplay, and the final satisfaction is anti-climatic and as weak as the drawn out series itself.
Shadowelfz - 2/9/2012, 5:37 AM
Teabag- Ahhh dont you just love being reported for having an opinion?

Seriously though guys do not report someone for saying something you dont agree with, report them for bullying you, another user, spaming, ect.

Also as for the comic book... meh. A comic book is a lame idea since the show had to be sooo watered down to fit superman into TV format, with action taking a back seat to teen angst. While I am not against that in and of itself, it just got nausiating with this show.
EdGross - 2/9/2012, 5:39 AM
C'mon, it'll be cool to see Welling as Superman go up against Rosenbaum as Lex Luthor. Here's hoping that the writer takes things in an exciting direction using the show's continuity and relationships.
SailsOfCharon - 2/9/2012, 6:18 AM
Ehh, what is the point of this? Haven't they butchered the legacy of Superman enough already with 10 years of Snoreville??? :/
clogan - 2/9/2012, 6:23 AM
Shit art...

Smallville suckED, the comics will suck too...
ManofSteel23 - 2/9/2012, 6:25 AM
I am soooo buying this! I dont care what people say about smallville,I loved it!
ComicBookGoth - 2/9/2012, 6:28 AM
i dig bryan Q. miller he won me over w/an his wondrous batgirl run.



but as for Smallville being a Comic....
that just seeems odd.

like Spider-man being a Musical, it just leaves me with a sense of


Supersonicboobs - 2/9/2012, 6:43 AM
Honestly speaking...Smallville sucked! Really it did, it is a waste of time,space and everything!
The fan-boys who like it are even more of a waste!

Nolan,synder,Goyer "Man of Steel" is where the Action is going down!
Ancar - 2/9/2012, 6:46 AM
Smallville fans don't read comics!
KNIGHT3000 - 2/9/2012, 7:09 AM
When Clark went to Apokalips in the end, to push it away, he shoulda passed through Darkseid's place and kicked his ass. That woulda been a much better finally. But, I honestly think all of season 10 sucked more than the rest.
Smallvilleisgood - 2/9/2012, 7:17 AM
@noregrets Thats not true, they have stated many times they always had permission to put clark in the suit and let him fly. It was a choice to not do that in the whole season.
LucasMend - 2/9/2012, 7:19 AM
god

Smallville was awesome! ...at times.
I'm so buying this, can't wait!
thelolle - 2/9/2012, 7:31 AM
I am so buying this.
Hando99 - 2/9/2012, 7:38 AM
Wow the art looks terrible. And didn't the mini cgi character from the finale clearly have a suit with red undies? So they just copying MOS or new 52?
thewolfx - 2/9/2012, 7:58 AM
nice
Peteyparker - 2/9/2012, 8:30 AM
So a T.V. Show that's about a comic book character is going to continue in comic book form.....O_o......Isn't that just his comic book at this point?
Action - 2/9/2012, 8:47 AM
I might buy this.
hoodedjester - 2/9/2012, 9:05 AM
I'm actually just watching season 10 and the whole thing feels like a complete cop out. No original ideas and it sure feels like the writers and actors just want to be done with the show.

I think the best seasons where 1 -5 and then after that, downhill it went. I for one will not be spending any money to read the comic. It's over - let it be.
