Three things:
1) YES! I accepted the novel format when it was announced because I love books like It's Superman! (P.S. I recommend that for those who haven't read that book), but a comic version is what most fans need because we wanted to SEE Welling as Superman, not CG Welling as Superman. That's why we felt cheated a bit, though I didn't quite mind because that last shot was something I knew was coming for a few years, but I must admit; the scenes with Superman (granted in CG) surprised me anyway.

2) The suit: the show clearly showed the suit with the trunks, but now the comic features them removed and now a red line has been added to the middle of the strap of the belt. Even though this is the latest in the recent redesigns from MOS, to the New 52; if this was still part of the show, does that mean Clark removed the trunks after debuting visually in Finale? (The Chloe comic from 2018 would show what the world was like back then, so that doesn't count in this argument, but one other thing does) What about the scene set in 2013? The trunks are there. So, my question is: when does season 11 take place between the future years of the show of 2013-2018, or is this a retcon and we're suppose to imagine this version of the suit on the show where it had the SR version?

3) Stories: what could we expect from the comic and what kind of stories will we be getting now and into the future? There are a number of possibilities; one theory I have is that since the show was about Clark before he became Superman; Season 11 would probably be about what happens afterward, and plus, since Clark was told throughout those ten years that he'd be this, that, etc. he would probably ask himself after revealing himself to the world "okay, what's next". Plus, the show did present future stories, whether IN the future, or not. Lex becoming president and why it was announced in 2013 but didn't happen until 2018, that nuclear explosion in Homecoming, today no one realizes that when Clark buried Doomsday, he set up the "Death of Superman", and plus, we havew Brainiac 5 in the future, but is the villain Brainiac still exist in the present? Number of possibilities.

Ironic that, even with digitial bering in April, we will see printing of this in May 2012, a year afterward the finale, like it was "picking up where it left off", huh?

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.

So, In this series Superman will have a DCnU suit with SR shield, I am okay with that.

I hope that they keep Smallville comic separate from the rest of DCnU titles.

This shot is a little more underwhelming:

Trunks are definately gone, but the suit is fabric and not metal like in the DCnU. Hate the way Clark is drawn in that shot. Does not look like Welling. Way to young.

We shall see.

Where did THAT come from? That better not be the cover to issue #1. I want the one I saw before that one.

It's from the TV Guide article. They updated it it.

Looks like Superboy to me.

Clearly, Gary Frank is only capable of drawing Chris Reeve as Superman.

It's the print cover by Gary Frank. The one before is the digital cover by Cat Staggs.

Don't know why there's such a drastic change in quality.

It's the print cover by Gary Frank. The other is the digital cover by Cat Staggs.

Is that Gary Frank's usual art style?

Just go for the digital one.
