I finished Smallville season 10 a few weeks ago and I didn't want to let go!

Thankfully there are comics! I have read a few of them already and I LOVE them!

Then again being married to Clark wouldn't be too bad :P

I never followed the show - would the comics be accessible without? I realize I'd miss a lot of context coming in during "season 11," but wondering overall if it stands reasonably well alone.

I ask because the writer is one of my favorites and currently isn't on anything else. His Batgirl comics were fantastic.

Mmmm I have only read the first 2 Volume's and yea I think so. They do refer to things that happened but I think you will be able to figure it out. If not you can always ask here :)

Eric (cwluc) | 19 comments So I'm a little confused. Especially when considering the page count which version (the digital or print) is being referred to in this series? http://www.goodreads.com/series/80957...

Lets go with the first entry, 11.1, http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/14... The digital says it's 22 pages and the print is 48. I'm willing to clean it up I am just not sure which one to go with here.


...and the release date.

I just double checked and my digital has 22, so maybe the print has 48? Not sure.

Eric (cwluc) | 19 comments Oh lord I completely forgot about this post and you're right (D 22, P 48). I have (with the help of Batman '66 #1 - Shameless plug cause it's AWESOME!) sorted out this madness. I will clean this up tonight after the Breaking Bad finale. (oh I did it again and I don't even feel bad!

Basically it's like this.

Digital page counts, release dates, etc are all here http://www.readdcentertainment.com/Sm...

Print page counts, release dates, etc http://www.dccomics.com/comics/smallv...

The printed copy combines the 3-4 digital issue arc each month and the specials from those glorious 5 week months, which can no longer be bought anymore... hmmm where will I get that info now? Ok, things to consider while bored at work. I will clean them up and label them clearly for all to see.. hopefully no one messes them up afterwards.

Also the trade Smallville Season 11 Vol. 1: Guardian needs some extra attention too since I don't see the correct numbers on that listed anywhere.

Eric (cwluc) | 19 comments This is going to take a bit longer than a thought... there is incorrect info everywhere.

So I'm working the series from the TPB on down.

TPB: http://www.goodreads.com/series/11093...

Printed: http://www.goodreads.com/series/11344...

Both completed.

Now with the Digital First episodes (issues) I have a question about (http://www.goodreads.com/series/80957...). Did your covers change at some point? Cause every one of them is the printed version with UPCs on here. Also someone used the text from the printed version instead of the text and covers from here http://www.readdcentertainment.com/Sm... or http://www.comixology.com/Smallville-...

Eric (cwluc) | 19 comments Meh, Almost done now. No worries. 9 to go.

Also here's Smallville: Titans and Smallville: Alien

Eric (cwluc) | 19 comments Just curious, I'm not going to stop updating either way, but are you all keeping up with the continued Smallville titles?

I'm want to start reading them again asap. Hopefully when my thesis is handed in, I'll get a bit of me-time :)
