…then do I have a story for you. DC Comics announced today that they would be launching Smallville Season 11 in comic form. The comic will be written by Brian Q. Miller and drawn by Pere Perez. This isn’t the first time a comic has continued where a TV series has ended. Although, I can’t think of any that weren’t a Joss Whedon series (Buffy, Angel, Firefly). What I find interesting is how this is getting released. Beginning on April 13, a chapter will be released weekly in a digital format. Then, on May 16, a print copy that collects the chapters will be released. There’s currently no word on pricing or length of each chapter. While I’ve always had a mild fascination with Smallville (have the first 7 seasons on DVD), I’m not really interested in this. What I always found interesting about Smallville was that it was about Clark Kent and not Superman. It was an alternate take on everything, and not just another entry into the Superman mythos. Once you put him in the costume and make him Superman, all of that is gone. All you have now is another take on Superman. You’ve lost what made Smallville unique. Of course, I could be convinced to buy it if this turns out good, but my point about it not really being Smallville will still remain.
