Why not? I'd think that would be the perfect place to slip some stuff in. (and boost sales).

Granted I loved the show when it was good, but this type of thing sort of irks me, seems more like milking the show than improving it's mythos.

Tv movies is not likely to happen. Since sets/props are gone sold/in storage. Plus cast has moved onto other things. Also among wb needing to have the character on film to hold onto film rights and the still on going copyright battle on superman. Film is there goal right now.

As for tom I haven't heard of him doing anything of late. Right now he probably enjoying time off to relax and spend time with friends and family. As for work who knows maybe he is working on stuff with his production company, or will act/direct something soon. Just cause we may not hear something he could be doing things.

I am looking forward to this but I think it will be canceled with in its first 6 months because of the fact that most people who watched the show will not go and pick-up the comic based off the show. Much like before hand when they tried this when the series first stared I don't think to many people will care to pick it up to see when happens afterwards because we all know the story. Buffy was almost canceled a few times before it found its grove but in the same she was different because we didn't know the story of her as well and what comes after. I hope it will does well although I would have like to have seen this book more in graphic novel format.

This is great news cannnot wait. I just wonder if it will be called Smallville or not mind as he doesn't live at the farm anymore. Also I wonder if it will continue from the ending of smallville or just after he defeated Darkseid.

It's set 6 months after the season 10 finale from what I can gather.

And it will continue the Smallville name. Although 'Smallville' may not be the literal location of the stories much any more, it's what the show is known as.

http://www.tvguide.com/News/Smallvil...c-1042919.aspx

In one of the closing scenes of last May's Smallville series finale, Chloe Sullivan tells her Superman-worshipping son, "There will always be more adventures for another day." That day is about to arrive, thanks to a new comic-book series that picks up where the long-running show left off. On April 13, DC Comics launches Smallville Season 11 in digital format (and later in print collections).

Season 11 begins six months after Clark Kent defeated Darkseid and stopped the planet Apokolips from crashing into Earth. He's now settling into life as the Man of Steel while continuing to carry on his dual identity as a mild-mannered reporter at the Daily Planet. "It's Clark's first year as Superman," says writer Bryan Q. Miller, who was also a writer on the TV show and has previously scripted DC's Teen Titans and Batgirl comics. "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."

Don't expect the good times to last forever. Lex Luthor — brought back from the dead as Smallville ended but wiped of his memories, including that Clark is super-powered alien — will be one of Superman's main adversaries in the series. "Most people are thrilled that Superman saved the world by moving a planet out of the way," Miller says, "but Lex and a handful of others are concerned that there's a guy out there who can move planets."

Fans of the TV show will no doubt be thrilled to see many of the supporting cast featured prominently in the story. "It's a continuation of the lives of characters seen weekly over the course of 10 years," Miller says. "It's an ensemble book with Clark Kent at the core. Clark just so happens to now be Superman." That ensemble includes Lois Lane, his fiancé and fellow reporter; his childhood best friend, Chloe; and Oliver Queen, aka the Green Arrow. As was teased in the finale, Chloe and Ollie are now married. (In fact, she's going by the name Chloe Sullivan-Queen.)

The first arc of Smallville Season 11 is scheduled to include 12 chapters, which will be available via the DC Comics app on Apple, Android and Windows mobile devices, as well as online at read.dccomics.com. The first print edition goes on sale May 16 and will collect the opening four chapters, along with an episode guide to the TV show. The digital covers (including the one pictured above) are the work of artist Cat Staggs, while Gary Frank will handle the print covers. Pere Pérez, who worked with Miller on the Batgirl comic, will handle the interior art.

I'm kinda surprised that they made him lose the trunks.

Amazing cover. Can't wait to see Clark's first super year and read about what happens with Lex.

No trunks?

What I am more interested in is will we see Batman and Wonder woman finally and if so what will their outfits look like. Also on a side note the good part about this is if it does sell well then you might see it later down the line from DC on their DTDVD cartoons.

Well they probably made it look like the New 52 Superman costume. No problem with that as far as I'm concerned.

Nice.

A comic makes much more sense than a novel. If they can't get 1/10 of the show's viewership to purchase it, it will do well.

I wonder if Welling will have any participation in this. As an exec producer and lead star on Smallville, he had a lot of say in how Clark was written and portrayed

The first issue will begin with Clark throwing a pair of red underwear in the trash.

I'd rather see them expand the universe of Smallville. Now that there are no actors or restrictions involved I'd see expansion of the Justice League in a "Brave and the Bold" fashion, as we've already seen how Clark would handle his villains, the only difference is now he can fly.
