    In keeping with tradition, figured we could devote episode threads to the new comics episodes coming in April. And since we've got some minor spoilers and info already on the first book including a great interview with Bryan Q. Miller about it.

    BTW, since they are (I assume) continuing the one-word titles from the show to the comic, might as well rename the finale episodes. For me, I pick the same titles from last year: DESTINY & SUPERMAN.

    This really has me pumped up, dare I say more than the episodes themselves! Well it can't be helped now that it's full-on Superman.

    Ah, happy days are here again and it's not complete without Milos celebrating Chloe in the new Smallville comics.

    The suit in the SV comics is what TW rightfully deserves instead of the SR suit after 10 years. I wonder if there's going to be promotion for the comics and if any SV cast members will help promote it.

    As to be expected from milos, as for press it probably just ge some web stuff and things in comic shops. Now when we get around to release. Would be great to hear from cast on what they think of it.

    Well I don't see why emil, and others won't be there. Millar has mention we will see the jl and others. Now of course probsbly not full time but I don't see why they won't pop up from time to time.

    Chloe was sometimes written very well, other times not so much. But I think Bryan Miller always showed her in a good light and I hope he does the same here. Chloe to me had its ups and downs over the years, and I have especially rotten things to say about big portion of her fanbase, but as a whole she has always been a character I had a soft spot for. I simply could not dislike her. If she was played by anyone other than Allison Mack, then she might've started to get on my nerves, but not Allison. I'm glad she played her so long and creating this character is one of the few things I'm grateful to Beavis & Butthead aka Gough & Miller.

    You're telling me. It eventually got so bad that I started to hate the character. I still do, as a matter of fact.

    EDIT: And pairing her up with Oliver (a character who I dislike almost as much) didn't help at all.

    That makes one of us. :cwink:

    I love Allison. I think she's a good actress. My issues with Chloe have nothing to do with her.

    Fair enough. I look forward to S11 and Chloe is a character I'm interested to see what Miller will do with.

    I'm interested in seeing how Clark will grow and change and how he'll interact with the people around him as Superman. And...I kinda wanna see Batman. :woot:

    Well bryan does mention the second issue/chapter will feature someone special from dc universe. I think its hint to bats. As for chloe for me I liked her character more then I ever did lana's. Now yes at times chloe wasn't good. But that happened to most characcters in the show.

    I just came from the DC website, where the issue is listed; it doesn't say "not final cover" so where did you find that?

    Also, we've been talking about the artists from the covers, and the good and bad that came with it, that I thought we should at least talk a bit about the interior artist: Pere Perez.

    I didn't recognize the name until I saw I googled him, and saw some of the work. The guy did some work relating to the Superman: New Krypton Saga, with Action Comics #881-889. He also did Batgirl, an issue of Birds of Prey, and the final two issues of the Return of Bruce Wayne, among others. He also switches from gritty to simple in terms of the realism presented, but the artwork is good, which makes him being on this thing a good thing because at least we know the artwork inside these book(s) will be good and fun to look at.

    Here are some examples:
