If you don’t recognize the above panel, run to your computer or smart device and purchase the digital first Smallville Season 11 #1 (see purchase and download link below for more info). This is the REAL Superman. If you’ve never bought a comic or if you’ve never seen an episode of Smallville, you will have no problem understanding what is going on in this Superman story. THIS is the book you can read, or you can read to your kids, or have them read. Everyone can enjoy it’s uplifting tale of an alien farm boy saving the world. He’s just doing his job. It is short but then it is only part of a 12 issue arc. Each digital first issue is available weekly (Friday) and only 99 cents in the US.
Issue #1 remains the Top Selling Digital Comic on Comixology (digital comic central). Help to make comics history and save an industry! Purchase each week. It’s the future and you get a great story, too. Let’s also keep in mind purchasing the print (3 to 4 digital first) compilations to see how this book sizes up against the more traditional competition.
Here’s G2Factor’s show regarding the first issue: Smallville Season 11 #1. Available on iTunes and talkshoe.
Issue 2 will be released on April 20th. BE SURE TO PURCHASE AND DOWNLOAD YOUR DIGITAL BOOK ON FRIDAY. Available through your DC Comic app or Comixology app on your devices or by going to the DC Comic website or Comixology website. Issue 1 was released early, 9:30 am EDT, last Friday, so maybe it will be again. Cause a frenzy for this Superman story!
SUNDAY, April 22nd, G2Factor will talk about Smallville Season 11 #2 at 5 pm EDT/4pm CDT. This the second installment of the ‘episode’, GUARDIAN. There are rumors we’ll get to see Clark Kent doing every day things with Lois Lane, his fiancee. The extraordinary and the ordinary makes Superman a unique character.
IMPORTANT!
