Fans of the smash-hit TV series Smallville haven’t had much to cheer about since the show ended its critically acclaimed 10-year run on The CW last May. That’s all going to change with the upcoming new comic book series from DC Entertainment: SMALLVILLE SEASON 11. Written by former Smallville show scribe Bryan Q. Miller, the new digital first series will be published digitally on April 13, 2012, with new digital chapters released weekly thereafter. Additionally, the online chapters will be offered in a print periodical, along with an episode guide to the hit television series, with the first print issue released on May 16.
When Buffy was canceled, but then reborn in comic book form, I was very happy because there were still stories to be told in the Buffy universe, same with Angel. When Smallville ended, I was relived that it was finally over, because they had been rehashing the same damn storylines for the previous 2 years. Not sure I think that there’s very much left to tell in the Smallville universe that isn’t being told in the mainstream Superman books.

Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Diesel) fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction.
Technically, this is the fourth Riddick movies, but whatever, I’m psyched for it.

“I tend to take this latest development as a kind of eager confirmation that they are still apparently dependent on ideas that I had 25 years ago.”
of course, we already knew that he has a bone to pick with the comic book industry on a whole and DC in particular, so it’s no surprise that he’s not rainbows and sunshine about the situation. My opinion of course, is that this may be one of the worst things, or the best things, to ever happen to DC. They seem to be struggling to find a clear direction to go in with their properties, something that Marvel/Disney seems to be doing damn well.
Jonathon Carroll and his groomsmen were decked out in the finest Krypton robes this side of the yellow sun. According to Jessica, they had purchased the bodysuits from Rivers Edge Dancewear, and Jonathon took the time to make the robes himself. The iconic House of El “S” logo was produced by Wildwood Studios based on the symbol from the Superman Returns film.

Here’s the comic that he modeled it after, and it’s a pretty good duplications…but why would you do this to your back? 20 years down the road when it’s bleeding over, it’s not going to look all that hot. WHY.
