Well Andy, We’re getting “Valkyrie”, a 4 issue Lois-centric story for Smallville Season 11 that starts on Friday, April 5. She’ll be teaming up with Lana Lang.
Don’t miss it! Support Lois Lane and @bryanqmiller
spread the word!
I think Smallville Season 11 #7 (Chapters 19-21) might be my favorite…but then I say that every issue.
Smallville: Season 11 is out in print today! The fourth print issue includes the three digital chapters that were released as digital downloads the past three Fridays. It includes the last 3 chapters of the season’s premiere episode, “Guardian.” Overall, “Guardian” has had 12 digital chapters comprising, as of today, 4 print issues. So, pick up all of “Guardian” if you haven’t already. Also, the first issue of “Guardian” was so successful it earned a reprint with a new cover (Gary Frank’s comic book art from Smallville’s series finale).
The issue will cost $3.99 US. To purchase a copy, you will either need to find a local comic book shop (LCS) or subscribe to print versions. Diamond Comic Distributors uses orders not sales to rate comics, so make sure to put Smallville: Season 11 on your pull list/subscription. You can start a subscription at DC Comics, Comixology, Lone Star, or Midtown Comics. Please support Lois and Clark by getting a hard copy of Smallville: Season 11 as soon as you can. Thank you!
Bought mine at lunch today. :) Checked out a new comic book shop that is closer to my office and loved it. Had a great chat with the co-owner of the store—a WOMAN—who owns the store with her husband. She was AWESOME and we had a great conversation about the book and how well received it’s been. I actually tried to back additional copies of back issues to send to some of the men and women stationed overseas with my brother in the Army. I already sent the back issues to my brother and his friends enjoyed it so I wanted to send them a few more copies. However, the store was totally sold out of back issues. She had to re-order them for me. Yay Bryan!
Greatest story ever told.
Bryan Q. Miller….you broke my heart today with Smallville Season 11 #12! In the best possible way. It’s the kind of heartbreak that hurts and feels good at the same time.
Sometimes, the RIGHT kind of angst just hurts so good. Oh Bryan Q. Miller, you diabolical emotional genuis.
After falling prey to Lex’s trap, Superman finds himself surrounded by military helicopters…led by Sam Lane. Can Lois stop her father from shooting her husband? Can Superman save Lois as bullets fly around her?
HER HUSBAND! Best typo ever. Congratulations, Comixology.
Remember to purchase a digital copy of the next chapter in Smallville: Season 11’s first arc, “Guardian,” available today at ComiXology and the DC app. It’s only $.99 and buying a copy means letting DC Comics know you support Lois and Clark.
Since the first issue of “Guardian” was successful enough to warrant a reprint, please consider buying another or your first if you didn’t buy a copy already. Plus, it has a different cover featuring Gary Frank’s art of Clark above the Earth as Superman in Smallville’s series finale, which you can see here courtesy of @since1938.
Like, I’m imagining Clark and Bruce in Watchtower bonding and whatnot, Oliver comes in like, "Hey Clark check out my new arrow!" And Clark being all “That’s nice Oliver—So, Bruce you have a utility belt? So do I kindasorta!” Or Oliver asking Clark for help with a case, but Clark’s like “Oh but Bruce invited me to check out his cave. Can we do it tomorrow? kloveyabye” or “Yeah I’m in the Batmobile now so..hey I’m losing signal”
OR Clark and Bruce comparing belts and Oliver feeling left out cuz he doesn’t have one.
OR!!! Clark and Bruce snarking at each other (then laughing afterwards…because headcanon Bruce actually laughs sometimes) and Oliver being all…”but that was *our* thing.” or “But Watchtower was *our* place.”
I can imagine Oliver griping about it to Chloe and her getting quite annoyed.
Like, what if Clark starts suggesting things to Oliver like…”Bruce uses titaniam in his grappling hooks, you ever thought about that?” "Bruce names everything with a Bat in front of it, how come you don’t name everything with Arrow?" (OMG what if the reason Oliver starts naming things with “Arrow” in front of it is because of Clark gushing about Bruce’s Batcave and Batmobile.)
"You know, you and Bruce have a lot in common, except Bruce is scarier and his criminals kind of fear him more than yours do." "Bruce has a partner named Nightwing but her real name is Stephanie. Hey whatever happened to Mia? I liked her. You should do like Bruce and make Mia your partner.” "Bruce has a Batmobile (it’s kind of amazing). Why don’t you get, like, an Arrow-mobile or something? I’m sure Bruce could help with that." "I *know* you’re a billionaire and you don’t ‘need’ Bruce’s help, it was just a thought." "Bruce let me use his zip line. It. Was. Awesome. How come you never let me use *your* zip line, Oliver?"
Now I’m imagining this conversation that Lois will have to have with Clark. Because Clark can be a bit obtuse, God love him. Lois will be like “Clark honey, you’ve been spending a lot of time with Bruce—” and Clark cutting her off “HE’S AWESOME RIGHT?!”
Oh and Bruce will harcore fanboy Clark too. Right in Oliver’s face. But he’ll be more stoic about it like, “Clark took me flying, nbd. Did he ever take you flying?” "Clark is teaching me Kryptonian, nbd. Has he taught you Kryptonian. He probably thinks you don’t want to." "Also, his Fortress is pretty impressive. I got to interact with the A.I., nbd. Have you been to the Fortress? No? Maybe Clark will invite you one day.” "Hey look at this ring Clark gave me. Says he trusts only me with it. I probably won’t use it much. You ever use Kryptonite on him Ollie?" (I had to go there. Also, Bruce can be pretty catty.) "I invited Clark to this gala at the museum. He seemed pretty excited about it. I’d invite you, Ollie, but I only have three tickets."
(Headcanon Bruce says nbd a lot)
And then Kimmie and Chris suggested this gem: "So, Ollie, I was thinking we need to update the Watchtower systems before we go to the game—
"OH IT’S THE BATSIGNAL! Gotta run Ollie kloveyabye" *WHOOSH
