    I hope Season 11 does well enough to get to a Season 12! :D Love the article. :) I only hope fans of the show who don't read comics consider picking it up.

    From what it looks like and I don't have figures to go by its been doing well as print and digital. So I could see it go for a season 12 counting on how many episodes/print issues per episode there is.

    40% of the people who bought #1 on Comixology were new to buying comics (well, digitally at least). So that might tell you something

    I'm not new to comics, or much else in this world for that matter lol but issue #1 was the first one I ever bought digitally as I had just gotten an iPad.

    Nice! I did not know that! I'm rather new to digital myself, but I hope with the likes of Buffy/Angel comic continuations, Farscape, and now Smallville. Fans of TV shows who don't read comics I hope are deciding to pick these up. I love it when people decide to pick up comics for the first time.

    Man am I glad a Season 11 never made it to air, if the intent was to introduce Batman.

    I loved Smallville.
    I love Superman.
    I love Batman.

    But introducing the Bat into Supe's world so soon after Clark truly becomes Superman, just feels downright cheap, and nothing but an exploit to sell copy.

    Oh come on was it cheap shot for all the other heroes we saw on the show. It was something fans wanted and we couldn't get due to legal reasons.

    I just think it should have come much, much earlier. Seriously, the only thing stopping WB from putting BW on SV was WB. Does that make sense? Good, then I know I'm among friends.

    I felt that way at first, that is until I actually read the story, "Detective." It is my favorite of all the stories so far. The current story, "Argo," is pretty incredible.

    Another reason is issue no.16 "Olympus" Twenty years ago a young boy washed up on a mysterious island and met a princess. Now,that princess has come to look for the mother who disappeared when she took the boy back. A hint the princess wears bracelets on each wrists and very strong.

    Season 11 is great, never something that the Series could have pulled off with it's budget or base.
