Smallville Gets New Life With Upcoming Digital Comic Series

Smallville fans around the world will be able to pick up where the show left off last May with Season 11 of the CW show debuting in a digital comic this April 13th.  I used to be a pretty die hard fan of this series until it went a little wayward in the later seasons, but I definitely would like to watch the seasons I missed considering I dumped 8 years of my life into it.  Once that mission is complete maybe I’ll check out these digital comics, but until then I don’t really want to jump into season 11 without seeing how the live-action series played out.  You can check out the official details for the Smallville digital comic via the press release below.  You’ve been needing to queue up the last two seasons in your Netflix account…

Smallville Comic Book Press Release

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 16.
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.”
