- El Comic de la Smallville Season 11 Presenta a Impulse y expande su universo (TVGuide):

[spoiler]El Comic de la Smallville Season 11 Presenta a Impulse y expande su universo
Por Rich Sands Dec 13, 2012 10:46 AM ET


Imagen Imagen Imagen Imagen Imagen

A medida que el cómics de la Smallville Season 11 empieza su tercer arco la historia está a punto de acelerarse — literalmente. El viejo amigo de Clark Kent's y compañero de equipo Bart Allen, aka el héroe rápido como un rayo Impulse, hace su debut en la serie digital en el capítulo de este viernes. Y DC Comics tiene planes para extender la serie, una top-ventas tanto en su forma digital como impresa.

El nuevo arco, "Haunted," explorará los orígenes de la habilidad de Bart de correr a super velocidad. "Hay algo que ha estado persiguiendo a Bart desde hace tiempo, una historia pasada que está llevando consigo," dice el escritor Bryan Q. Miller del título. "Todo el mundo en nuestra historia está siendo perseguido — físicamente, metafóricamente — por algún elemento de su pasado."

Cuando Bart apareció por primera vez en la cuarta temporada de la serie de TV, en el episodio "Run," le contó a Clark que hubo un accidente y "ese gran destello de luz" que le dio su turbo energía. "Por primera vez vamos a explicar cómo Bart consiguió sus poderes," dice Miller, que también fue escritor en la serie de TV. "Quizá había más en ello que lo que incluso posiblemente Bart sabe."

"Haunted" tendrá más conexiones directas con la serie de televisión que las primeras historias de la Season. "Es la primera vez en la que nos estamos apoyando fuertemente en las anteriores historias de la serie de Smallville," dice Miller. "Este arco tiene muchas raíces en episodios específicos y en la mitología se la serie." También continúa la búsqueda de Chloe para saber más sobre su análoga del universo paralelo de Tierra 2, y también sobre los intentos de Lex de llenar los vacíos de su amnesia.

"Tan diligente era Lex cubriendo sus propias huellas, que escondió información a sí mismo," dice Miller. Él está siendo acosado por su subsconsciente recuerdo de su media hermana Tess, a quien él asesinó en la final de TV justo cuando ella lo drogaba con una sustancia que le borraba la memoria. "Los recuerdos de Tess son el útimo bastión para él. este es su último y desesperado intento de descubrir el hombre que era antes de la amnesia, y también de descubrir lo que ella sabe — y que él presumiblemente también sabía — sobre Supermán."

La Smallville Season 11 es publicada digitalmente tres viernes de cada mes (y después recogida en edición impresa). Empezando el viernes, 4 de enero, una nueva serie de aventuras parallelas será publicada digitalmente en la semana que no hay número digital de Smallville. El primer arco, "Effigy" muestra un equipo entre John Jones, aka the Martian Manhunter (otra estrella invitada recurrente de la serie de TV), y Batman, que hizo su debut en el universo de Smallville en la más reciente historia de la Season 11. "Estas son historias que ayudarán a llenar el resto de nuestro mundo mientras que Clark está ocupado en su propia aventura," dice Miller. "La primera de estas historias será 'Effigy.' Da a todo el mundo la oportunidad de que la máquina de Smallville siga funcionando cada semana."

- Smallville Season 11: Construyendo la Justice League (IGN.com):

[spoiler]Smallville Season 11: Construyendo la Justice League
Bart Allen regresa al Universo de Smallville.
by Joey Esposito 14 de Diciembre, 2012


DC Comics' continuation of the smash-hit Smallville with its digital-first Season 11 continues to expand the ever-blossoming universe, first with its introduction of Hank Henshaw, then by debuting Batman and Robin, and now a familiar face from the show returns in the form of Bart Allen, aka Impulse.

With the Smallville superheroes growing at a consistent rate and the reveal of new "interlude" chapters that will focus on characters in the Smallville Universe that aren't directly related to the ongoing events -- like Batman and Martian Manhunter -- it makes one wonder if we'll soon see the debut of this universe's Justice League...

To get the answer to that question and a whole bunch more, we talked with series writer Bryan Q. Miller. The latest chapter of Smallville: Season 11 goes on sale each and every Friday on the DC Comics app powered by Comixology. The Impulse arc, titled Haunted, begins today!

IGN Comics: Unlike Batman, we’ve actually seen a speedster in Smallville before. Is this the Bart Allen we met during the course of the TV show?

Bryan Q. Miller: Yes, though he’s arriving with a Season 11 “upgrade” – a new look, and exciting new sound effects… like “VING!” Plus, it was time for the hoodie to go. Like we (and by we, I mean me) pointed out in Season 10’s “Masquerade”, how DOES a hood stay up when you’re running at the speed of sound?

Under the outfit, he’s definitely the same “amigo” who stole Pa Kent’s wallet, lo those many years ago. But there’s something he’s been hiding from his friend, Clark, for almost as long as he’s known him. When he shows up in Metropolis, that secret won’t be very far behind.

IGN: So is he still going by Impulse or has he graduated to the Flash now?

Miller: He’s still Impulse, through and through. We did, however (in Season 9’s “Absolute Justice”) have a nod toward the JSA’s very own Flash, Jay Garrick. So, this next arc will technically have a Flash in it… at some point.

IGN: How do Clark and Bart's paths cross this time around? Does it build upon the ongoing narrative of Season 11?

Miller: What seems like a perfectly innocuous social visit (Bart’s yet to see Big Blue in the tights in person) takes a turn for the worse within the first 30 pages. Clark and Bart’s thread in Haunted delves much more into Bart’s backstory and current dilemma. Chloe’s thread, on the other hand, moves us down the field on the season’s “Crisis” front. And Lois may begin to learn some surprising things about Lex as she starts to dig. We’ve got a lot going on in Haunted, to say the least.

IGN: You know, we’ve got Superman, Green Arrow, Batman, and now Impulse is back… could it be you’re building to an official Justice League for the Smallville Universe?

Miller: Absolutely. Though, by the time we see them out in full force towards the end of the season, it may not be the roster everyone’s expecting. Regardless, we’ve got a few more familiar DCU faces to meet before we do a roll call.

IGN: What’s the dynamic between Superman and Impulse like here? How does their history together affect that relationship as opposed to the dynamic we saw between Bruce and Clark?

Miller: This arc is definitely deeply entrenched in certain moments in series history, and not just on the Bart side of things. “Run”; “Justice”; “Fracture” and the both our Earth 2 episodes all play a part in the whole. Clark and Bart already know each other, and already have a history, so they don’t need to push through that awkward “getting to know you” phase of two heroes’ relationship where they punch each other through walls. Even though at one point, someone DOES send Bart flying at a wall… and he gets to vibrate through it!

IGN: Because it’s basically a requirement to ask concerning these two characters: might we be seeing your take on a Superman vs. Flash race for the Smallville Universe?

Miller: Briefly, yes. WAY back when I was breaking the season, the race was going to be a legitimate component, but it fell away by the time I got to writing Haunted. They do race, however, and there is an answer as to which of them is fastest.

IGN: Are there any other characters you’d like to bring into the Smallville fold that haven’t been seen yet?

Miller: Yes. More than a few. But, before we get to that point, we’ll be revisiting another old friend we haven’t seen for a while.

IGN: Awesome. Now, I understand that you guys are changing up your release schedule a bit?

Miller: Yeah, we’re doing something new with our digital release schedule, starting in January. Typically, we’ve been on for 3 weeks out of every month, and dark for every Friday that passes until we’ve had our print issue come out. Lather, rinse, repeat. In January, during our first break in the Haunted arc, we’ll be rolling out the first of our “Interlude” or “Meanwhile” stories – shorter Smallville Universe tales that run as digital exclusive chapters across those formerly dark Fridays. Stories featuring Smallville universe characters not involved in the main narrative.

IGN: So what's the first of those interlude chapters about?

Miller: The same week that sees Haunted’s first 30 pages collected in print, that Friday, Effigy begins – a 4 chapter tale that follows Detective John Jones -- Smallville’s Martian Manhunter -- as he investigates a series of murders that have a deeply-rooted connection to his past. And our Batman (whom we met in Detective) goes along for the ride. We come back the next Friday with another 3 Fridays in a row of Haunted, then return for chapter 2 of Effigy, and so on. Axel Gimenez (who helped us round out Detective by filling in on art for Chapter 23) is on Effigy for pencils.

IGN: Are those interludes going to be collected in the monthly print comics as well?

Miller: Our parallel Smallville narratives will be digital-exclusive, only seeing print in collected trades. We wrestled for a while with trying to find a way to deliver uninterrupted Smallville and not step on print scheduling’s toes – this is a great way to accommodate print and spin more Smallville tales in the process. Hopefully, this might also lure some of our print-only die-hards (for whom we have endless appreciation) over to the apps to see what all the digital fuss is about.

- Bryan Q. Miller Expande El Universo de "Smallville Season 11" (comicbookresources.com):

[spoiler]Bryan Q. Miller Expande El Universo de "Smallville Season 11"
Por Kiel Phegley, 22 de Febrero del 2013


When it came time to tap a writer to continue "Smallville" -- the fan favorite Superman TV series that ran for ten years on the WB and CW networks -- in comic book form, there was really only one man for the job: Bryan Q. Miller.

A writer on the show during it's later seasons, Miller earned a reputation on the screen for bringing denizens of the DC Comics Universe onto screen with uncanny accuracy, and soon he'd shifted to writing DC comics himself including a beloved run on "Batgirl." Those skills have served him well over the first year of "Smallville Season 11" which serializes first as a digital comic before moving to print form.

Last week, DC announced that the "Season 11" comic would expand in its own way with a special one-shot story running alongside the current "Haunted" arc of the book. As Superman deals with the problem of the mysterious Black Flash alongside Bart "Impulse" Allen in the main narrative, the one-shot will explore Smallville's take on Martian Manhunter and Batman. CBR News spoke to Miller about all the threads he's been playing with since the book's launch, and below the writer describes how the comic is and isn't like the TV show, why more and more DC heroes are on the way to the book, who the audience is for this hybrid project and why in the end, it's all about establishing a Lex Luthor/Superman battle for the ages.


CBR News: Bryan, "Smallville" has been chugging along for about a year now as a comic. Overall, how much has that year been like a year on the TV series for you as a writer? Are you following the kind of story structures you would if you were writing for TV still?

Bryan Q. Miller: It's kind of this wonderful, unholy marriage of how we put together the show and how I typically put together my own comics work. It seems like it's not broken out like we would on the show, but actually it's quite the opposite of that. I outline everything exactly the same as on TV. I'm knee-deep in a lengthy outline for an arc two stories from where we are now, and I break that stuff the same as we did in the writer's room. Where the two methods change up is that in the show we'd have a teaser and then five acts, but in the comics online, every week very easily presents itself as the act of a very long episode. So in the case of these "mega-sodes" like we did for "Detective" and now "Haunted" you end up having 12 acts. That makes it very easy to slip into the same method of filming an act of the show just making each one a chapter of the digital comic. The real trick is also adding in at the end of every three acts a button or cliffhanger that's big enough so that the print reader -- because we do have a fair amount of people who read the series only in print -- will want to come back a full 30 days later and read the next part.

It's much longer than a commercial break.

[Laughs] Right. On the digital, our commercial break is only a week. So we can afford to have smaller exclamation points for every single week, but on that third week we need something bigger to bring the print reader back.

It's really its own animal. For all the digital books, I think it very much is its own unique animal for how we're telling our stories. Panel count versus page count and all that stuff makes it a brave new world on the digital front.

"Smallville" as a series evolved over the years from a sci-fi teen drama that occasionally used a bigger piece of DC mythology into a full-on superhero show that used DC characters almost every week. I feel like the "Season 11" comic has upped the scale of that idea even more. You didn't just do a Batman episode. You did Batman, Nightwing and a villain team-up with Mr. Freeze. How intentional has that been?

I think where we got to with the show, which was something of a natural progression, was that the first half of the series was pure Smallvile. It was him as a teenager in his hometown dealing with all the trials and tribulations of what that means...including meteor-affected bad guys. Season 6 and 7 were kind of the transition years where once we hit Season 8 and Clark moved to the big city, suddenly it was a whole different world. You realize that as complicated and difficult as your world previously felt, the change of going to college or getting a career or whatever suddenly makes you a small fish in a very big pond. That led to sci-fi conceits with the Earth 2 stuff, magic conceits with Zatanna and Fate and heroic stuff with the JSA. The later seasons were all about making that world bigger while also seeing that growth and exploration through Clark's eyes. And that also kind of explains why no one ever really talked about the JSA before because it really wasn't on Clark's radar. The show was so focused on teenage issues

With the book, we're taking that to its next evolution -- especially since with the drawn and written page we're able to blow a lot more stuff up. We're just going to keep broadening that world based on the foundation of the sci-fi, magical and heroic stuff we did in the later years of the show. This is more about the building of a community of heroes in "Season 11." We did our Batman arc, and we're in the middle of a Flash arc now. The next arc we have coming up will explore some stuff with Booster Gold who we met in Season 10, and we'll have a side story with Martian Manhunter and Batman. It's more about creating the entire world and fleshing that world as presented over the evolution of "Smallville" as a series than it is just being "Smallville: The Comic Book."


Right now you're dealing with the return of Bart Allen alongside some more traditional Flash ideas like Jay Garrick and the Black Flash. Bart's inclusion on the show as opposed to other Flash characters was always a kind of strange move to make. Are you trying to reconcile all those different ideas here, and what does that give to Clark's story?

The "Haunted" arc with Impulse is shaping itself up to be about the character's nature and the inevitability of how everyone is haunted by things they did in their past whether physical or metaphorical. You can only run from your past so far before things catch up with you. Who more perfect to tell that kind of story than Impulse whose whole nature is based on running? What we're also trying to do is connect and reconcile some things between "Run" -- the episode where we met Bart in Season 4 -- and the mention of Jay in our "Absolute Justice" two-hour episode that Geoff Johns wrote. It's a Smallville take on the Flash mythology while at the same time making sense of the little deviations we've had over the course of the series.

"Argo" is the next arc that uses a lot of elements from the later seasons on that sci-fi front. We've also been seeing Earth 2 and the twisted versions of the cast from the show bleeding over into Smallville the town, bringing thing full circle in a sense. What was it about the parallel earth setup that seemed particularly important for this phase of the story?

With Earth 2, it gives us a few things. For one, it lets us flesh out and complete a sentence that we started very late in the game in Season 10 with [the episodes] "Luthor" and "Kent." With the Oliver and Chloe plot, we never saw a Chloe on Earth 2. That was both for practical reasons and story reasons. We didn't have Allison Mac during filming for those episodes, but we also didn't need her to get the ideas across. But back in "Guardian," which started out "Season 11," we started everything with a ship that crashed through the dimensional rift from Earth 2, and it held their Chloe. And of course, she had black hair because when you have good and bad twins, just like in "Bewitched" or "I Dream of Jennie," one has to be blonde and the other brunette. [Laughs] It's the same thing with the goatees on "Star Trek!" Chloe 2's warning before she died was "Crisis is coming."

Now, comics people know kind of what we're going for with that, but for our regular "Smallville" viewers who aren't as steeped in DC mythology it's kind of a big mystery. Now we're getting back into the Earth 2 stuff with Chloe which not only allows her to search for the answer of what the Crisis is and how to stop it, it also gives us a chance to see what we didn't see in terms of other pieces of the story of "Luthor" and "Kent." It's going to be like that bit in "Back To The Future II" where Marty is crawling under the stage while Marty is also on the stage playing "Johnny B. Goode." This gives us a chance to play with that conceit a little bit.

It's interesting you bring up how to approach writing these stories both for comic fans and TV fans. I get the impression from DC that a significant portion of people reading the comic were TV fans who sought out the digital series. Have you had any interaction with fans that gives you an idea of who you're writing for most of the time?

The one sobering moment for that was that we had a Comic-Con panel preceding Season 8, and we made a big announcement there that Geoff was going to be writing our Legion of Super-Heroes episode. We were all very excited about that, and we knew that the internet would be excited about it, but from the 5,000 people in that room, we got crickets. And I think there was a large component of our audience that existed in the venn diagram of people who did read comics and specifically knew DC Comics and watched TV and watched "Smallville," but there wasn't a huge amount of overlap considering the size of the TV audience. So that was our first moment to say, "This is a chance to introduce people to DC mythology."

By the same token, when we started the comic on comiXology, I believe the stat we got was that 40% of everybody who bought issue #1 was brand new to comiXology and had never purchased a digital comic before. So I think there's definitely some precedent that shows a large chunk of the audience who followed the show and the brand didn't previously read comics. I think that's awesome.

Brandy Phillips: We see the same thing with our digital comics based on video games too. A lot of new fans come in, and it's a great way to introduce them to comics. There were a lot of questions coming in after "Smallville" launched of "How do I download this? I've never read a comic before." It's exciting for us that titles like this are reaching new audiences.

Miller: To call this a gateway drug is a little more salacious than we need, but it gets the point across that the DC Comics app and the comiXology app are great ways to get people who normally wouldn't go into a comic shop or wouldn't read comics online to discover a whole range of stuff they never would have dreamed existed before.


While "Argo" is the next arc serializing in the book and will be focusing on Clark, Booster Gold and the Legion, you're also getting to tell a side story with Batman and Martian Manhunter that will eventually be published as its own one-shot. How did that opportunity come about, and why pair up those two for a solo story?

It was an interesting situation to be in because for various reasons we didn't have John Jones super present in the last couple of years of the series. "Effigy" was one of the stories I had in my pocket during my years on the show, and every once in a while I'd pitch it out there, but it would never work out. I try to not turn anything I'm writing on the book into some stories other people worked on because it's not fair to the other writers on the show, but "Effigy" was my little darling, but logistically it didn't work out. I was planning on making it a part of "Season 11" at some point anyway, and when the opportunity came up to start doing these parallel stories on weeks where we had no digital chapter, it seemed like the natural thing would be to revisit John Jones. He was a presence on the show, and the "Smallville" viewer would recognize him. It's not like we're introducing some new character that Clark's never met.

The complication was that we already had a pretty big arc that Superman and Clark are very present in with "Haunted" so we didn't want to cross the wires and have Superman in two stories scattered across different weeks. But the response to Batman's introduction in "Detective" was so strong that it was natural to have him on the adventure with John Jones. It was a story that was going to happen regardless, but I think it's really for the better the way it's being done. Batman and Jones have a very interesting interplay that's different from Superman and Batman's interplay.

People asked for Batman for a long time on the show, and it never worked out. Now that he's in this series where you have the actors from the other characters in your head while you're writing, do you have a dream actor for Bruce who you imagine when you write these scripts?

It was tricky. We did that with Hank Henshaw in the "Guardian" arc, and at the outset I talked with Pere Pérez my artist about how I had Matthew Fox in my head. Jack from "Lost" was very much the idea we were going for with Hank Henshaw, and ironically we turned Henshaw into someone very similar to the character Fox played in "Alex Cross." [Laughs] But for the Batman arc, since it was my first time working with Chris Cross on art I didn't want to stop him from putting his stamp on the Batman stuff. So we didn't "cast" an actor for that story, but in my head it's always Kevin Conroy. I mean, his voice from the Bruce Timm stuff is always Batman to me.

The other big piece of the show outside the DC mythology stuff that was a hit with fans of the show was the various interpersonal relationships in the cast. There's the romantic subplots with Clark and Lois and the kind of internal fights between Lex and Tess who now lives in his brain. What's the relationship that you're expecting the biggest change from in comics arcs?

The challenge in laying out "Season 11" is that when you normally do a TV show, you know that at least you're doing 13 episodes or 22 episodes. So you can lay out how you want your character arcs to progress. For certain arcs in "Season 11" there were characters and character pairings that I knew exactly where they'd end up. But given the nature of comics, it's not as firm as knowing, "I've got 22 stories to tell" so there's been ebb and flow for what I can do and when. Where the season will get to is building up the legit Superman/Lex Luthor relationship as a twisted mirror version of the friendship Clark and Lex had growing up. We'll get there.

Aside from that, by the time "Haunted" ends, it will shift the paradigm for all of our couples in the series. We'll see those ramifications play out over the next few episodes, but especially three arcs from now we'll have a very heavy Superman/Lex story. We'll revisit that with a vengeance after we've gotten a few more episodes out of the way.
