Default Changes for Smallville Season 11 to occur with next storyarc

Digital-first DC Comics series "Smallville Season 11" undergoes a change later this fall, as reported by TV Guide. Following the end of the current "Olympus" arc, the ongoing title continuing the TV show's adventures will be replaced by a series of miniseries, starting in November with "Smallville: Alien."

That arc kicks off with a Monitor landing in Russia. Speaking to TV Guide, series writer Bryan Q. Miller alluded to landmark DC story "Crisis on Infinite Earths" when discussing the role of the Monitors.

"'Alien' will give us much more insight into the over-arching threat," Miller said. "It turns into a race between Superman and Lex Luthor to get to this Monitor first and find what the crisis is."

The format change, according to Miller, is partly designed to make the series more accessible to new and casual readers attracted by the comic through the "Smallville" TV series, which depicted the life of young Clark Kent and ran for 10 seasons from 2001 to 2011.

"Not that we don't already do that to an extent, but [now] the first 20-30 pages of each arc will be more about setting up the status quo for the miniseries, rather than jumping right into things," Miller said. "It's a way to help welcome more people into the Smallville universe that we've been expanding on since the television series ended."

"Alien" will also feature the "Smallville" debut of Russian superhero team the Rocket Red Brigade. The Miller-written "Smallville Special" interludes are planned to continue following the format change.
