I think season 7 gets sort of a pass because it was cut short due to the strike, and then they lost Lana for those 5 episodes which really messed up her arc and gave way to her bad return in season 8, not to mention Lex's departure was very ambiguous. But I hated the first half of season 6 because Clark was just a mopey, depressed guy. The best part of that all was the Green Arrow because we finally saw a costume hero who was doing the things that Clark should've been doing.

But I like the second half of season 6, once Lana finally started to figure out his secret and when it was revealed that she married Lex to spy on him. That made all the Lexana stuff justified to a certain extent. But with season 7, it was so obvious at that point that Clark and Lana were not meant to be together and that's what it made it frustrating. Personally I was a huge Clark and Lana fan, but that season made me hate her so much, especially because she had so much power over Clark. It was only fitting that she'd become his kryptonite in both a figurative and literal sense by the time she left in season 8.

Again: how I feel about one season usually has little (if anything) to do with how I feel about another. Just because S10 is my least favorite doesn't mean I can't recognize S7's flaws.

Indeed. For what it's worth, I don't think S7 is much of a prize either. It had some good stuff in there, but overall, it's just not that good.

Yup for me it was seeing bc, and to a degree some of kara stuff, and a handful of episodes here and there.

I liked Kara (at the time). And I loved the Bizarro stuff (up until he fell for Lana). And seeing a little bit of Krypton and Zor-El and Lara was pretty cool too. But overall, I thought it was very meh. Could've been much better. But to be fair, there was the strike.

Plus it was also around the time budget slashs started up and hurt the show.

I actually think the 5 post strike episodes hurt the season more than helped it. If I recall, I believe Lionel's death was going to close the season and Lex and Lana would've had to appear for 5-7 episodes in season 8, had they not had their "departures" rushed into the final episodes of the season.

SMALLVILLE SEASON 11 #3




• The SEASON PREMIERE EVENT continues!
• OLIVER and CHLOE are on a hunt in the heartland...or are they the hunted?
• LOIS is caught in the crossfire as SUPERMAN confronts LEX about last issue’s disastrous climax...
• HENSHAW’s condition takes a turn for the worse!


PS: Not that I mind the cover, but did they ditch Cat Staggs? Her covers are fantastic.

Doesn't look anything like the actors. Glad the artist is not doing the interiors.

I'm confused, is that digital issue 3 or print issue 3. It says it isn't coming out until July. And digital issue 3 should be out on the 27th of April....

I prefer the Staggs art.

Wow that doesn't look anything like Tom or Erica, but on the bright side it's a pic featuring Superman saving Lois so I'm happy.

It's print issue 3. I think they said Staggs is doing the digital covers.

Oh good. So we saw the print issue one, the Staggs issue 1 and 2 covers, and the print issue 3?

I think so. Though the second Staggs cover(the one with Lex) is shown for the print issue not the digital. We'll see soon enough, the first digital chapter comes out this Friday.

Fairly generic Superman cover there. Nothing at all, really, to signify that it's Smallville-related.

I don't know. It doesn't feel the same for me. I miss getting the spoilers for the tv show and anticipating the next new episode.

Yeah, I really don't feel any excitement over a comic series, even though its supposed to be based on characters that I loved for ten years. It's just not the same.

Eh, it's different, but I'll take more Smallville where I can get it.

I'm with you! I am very excited for Friday and have a sense that Smallville is back. Going to re-watch the finale Thursday, as I did the day before any season premiere. I'm super psyched.

What do you mean? Are you talking about how much each print issie with have? Well, each print issue is to carry 4 digitial chapters/issues. Issue 1 is listed to be 48 pages; divide that by 4 and you get 12 pages. So rounded off; 12 pages for each issue, at least for the beginning. Issues 2-3 are listed carrying 40 pages, and again divided by 4 equals 10 pages.

I don't know if that was the answer to your question. If not, please reiterate.
