    Smallville Season 11 Vol. 1

    Nice art work. Plot was ok but not really Smallville. The new outfit for Superman did not really look that good. The story seemed to go like the Lex Poisening of Superman with the sun. Still as comics go it wasn't bad.

    One of my favorite television shows of the past decade was <i>Smallville</i>
    . To anyone who knows the absolute comic-book geek that I can be, this shouldn't be at all a surprise. <i>Smallville</i>
    is so called because it tells the story of a young Clark Kent as he grew up in Smallville, KS, and learned to deal with his powers. How does he grow up to become Superman? What are the trials and tribulations he undergoes? What type of upbringing do his parents give him? When does he first come across the iconic Superman villains and allies of the larger <i>DC Comics</i>
    universe?

    These questions were answered over the ten seasons of the show, with the first five seasons establishing Clark's becoming a man and learning of his heritage. Seasons six and seven were a sort of “transition period” with Clark moving more and more of his life and “superheroing” to Metropolis, and then the last three seasons were basically almost all Metropolis, as our hero transitioned into becoming the Man of Steel.

    Six months after Clark finally became Superman, this comic occurs. In <i>Smallville, Season 11: Vol. 1, The Guardian</i>
    , Clark is adjusting into his role as Superman and the mind-wiped Lex Luthor is becoming the iconic villain we all know and loathe. The unique thing about this version of Lex is two-fold. First off, he is a <i>clone</i>
    of the original Lex. He has Lex's brain, but is he Lex? Or is he not Lex? Does he have Lex's soul? We don't yet know. The other difference between this and the other versions of Lex Luthor is that this one doesn't know just <i>why</i>
    he hates Superman so much. He doesn't remember, and doesn't know his reasons are part of his forgotten memories. He just knows he hates and distrusts the Man of Steel.

    The best thing, to me, about this comic was that we are able to see characters and see action that the show couldn't do. Due to legal constraints, which seem to be tighter in regards to movies, shows, and cartoons, they couldn't show certain characters on the small screen. And due to the limits of the network's budget, certain action couldn't be portrayed. Here, on the pages of a comic book, many characters, and a ton of action sequences, can be presented. It is awesome.

    The part I don't like? Such small increments in the series due to it's existence as scheduled digital comics releases. It take quite a while for enough to make a volume to be released. Until then, until each volume is released and collected together, there isn't a point in reading this comic as the story is not just incomplete, but the bits of the story are so small. Nevertheless, it is definitely worth waiting for the volumes to be released so one can read them.

    I loved the show, and I love Superman and Batman stories. This is why I'm looking forward to the next volume, where Batman is introduced into the <i>Smallville</i>
    universe via the comic-book page.
