- Lana Lang Hace su Debut en el Cómic de la Smallville Season 11 (TVGuide):

[spoiler]Lana Lang Hace su Debut en el Cómic de la Smallville Season

¡Está de vuelta! Cuatro años después de su última aparición en TV, Lana Lang regresa a Smallville — en los cómics. El primer amor de Clark Kent aparece en un nuevo arco de la serie digital de DC Comics Smallville Season 11 el viernes, 5 de Abril.

El personaje apareció por última vez en 2009, durante la octava temporada de la serie de TV. Poco después de haber conseguido super poderes (cortesía de un traje especial desarrollado por Lex Luthor) ella salvó Metrópolis absorbiendo una bomba de kriptonita, que esencialmente la hizo tóxica a Clark. Ella luego voló proverbialmente hacia el sol y fuera de su vida. (El papel fue interpretado por Kristin Kreuk, que ahora protagoniza la serie de la CW "Beauty and the Beast".)

"Desde entonces Clark no sólo ha superado lo de Lana, sino que ha seguido adelante con su vida. Él se comprometió con Lois Lane y se convirtió en Supermán," dice el escritor de la Season 11 Bryan Q. Miller (también un veterano del equipo de escritores de la serie de TV). "Muchas cosas han pasado durabte la ausencia de Lana."

Cuando volvemos a verla en la Season 11 ella ha tomado un alias de superhéroe en una cruzada contra los señores de la guerra en África. Lois va en una misión al Congo para el Daily Planet para investigar a este misterioso vigilante, el llamado Ángel de Plata. Dadas sus compartidas conexiones románticas con Clark, "hay una comprensible situación embarazosa entre las dos," cuando vuelven a encontrarse en África, dice Miller. "Pero también lo terminan en medio de las cosas bastante rápido. Hay cosas con las que ponerse al día, acción y girl power y es un buen momento." Miller también adelanta que "veremos un villano de los días pasados de Smallville" en el segundo capítulo.

Los capítulos digitales de la Smallville Season 11 se emiten cada Viernes (y después se reúnen en ediciones impresas). "Valkyrie," tiene lugar simultáneamente al arco principal de esta primavera, "Argo," una ventura que empieza el 12 de Abril y que lleva a Supermán y a Booster Gold al siglo 31 para ver a la Legion of Superheroes. Los capítulos de "Valkyrie" saldrán durante los descansos de "Argo." La artista Cat Staggs, quien ha estado haciendo las portadas de la serie digital, se encargará de los interiores de "Valkyrie" también.

La Smallville Season 11 está disponible como descarga en Comixology.com, readdcentertainment.com, the iBookstore, Nook Store y la Kindle Store.

Y también se ha sabido que el título de la tercera historia paralela se llamará "Hollow".

- Entrevista con Bryan Q. Miller en la WonderCon Anaheim 2013 (comicattack.net):

[spoiler]Entrevista con Bryan Q. Miller en la WonderCon Anaheim 2013
Por Alexander 12 de April, 2013


DC Comics fue tan amable de permitirme entrevistar a Bryan Q. Miller quien está actualmente escribiendo su serie de cómics de Smallville. El escritor conversó con nosotros sobre su antiguo trabajo en Batgirl protagonizado por Stephanie Brown.

ComicAttack: Estás trabajando en los cómics de Smallville ahora mismo, pero lo que me acercó a tu trabajo fue Batgirl con Stephanie Brown. Podría decirte que había mucho amor invertido en esa serie. ¿Fue ella siempre uno de tus personajes favoritos?

Bryan Miller: Ella estaba en mi radar. Sabía quién era Stephanie cuando Dan (Didio) vino a preguntarme si quería hacer algo con ella como Batgirl. Dije que absolutamente, porque vi un arco y una línea para Stephanie para que diera ese siguiente paso. Especialmente desde que ella era un personaje que pasó por el aro, y podría haber usado una historia para volverla a reconstruir y levantarla. Para ayudarla a que recuperara su mojo. Ayudó el que ella estuviera en un momento de su vida en donde sabía que había cometido errores pero que no iban a ser mantenidos por ellos.

CA: Si hubieras podido continuar, ¿a dónde habrías llevado la historia?

BM: Hay algunas pistas no muy sutiles con los flashes de Black Mercy al final de la serie. Todas podrían haber sido historias diferentes que hubiéramos tocado y finalmente habría conseguido encontrarse con el amplio camino de DCU.

CA: En la serie de Smallville, me di cuenta de que Monsieur Mallah y The Brain, dos de mis personajes favoritos, aparecieron recientemente. Ahora, ¿eran dos personajes que sabías que tenías que introducirlos, o te pidió DC que lo hicieras?

BM: Eso ciertamente vino de mí. No sé cuál fue el ímpetu, iba a ser un atraco de arte en el Louvre que Superman e Impulse iban a evitar. Tenía que ser algo con los suficientes números y velocidad como para confundirlos. Parecía como si tuvieran que ser villanos impulsados por cohetes o sobre patines o algo completamente inesperado. Así es que el poner a The Brain y los monos no era algo que tuviera planeado hacer, pero llegó porque “por supuesto eso es lo que pasa en Francia.” Eso es por lo que no lo vemos tan a menudo. Ahora mismo, no los usaremos de nuevo porque tenemos tantos personajes que quermos traer, que no tenemos planes inmediatos para ellos.

CA: ¿Cuál es tu punto de vista sobre el género y la raza en los cómics?

BM: ¡Esa es una pregunta gigantesca! Es una pregunta realmente bueba. Lo que estábamos intentando hacer con el libro de Batgirl era un personaje femenino positivo que pudiera pedir ayuda cuando lo necesitara, pero que no siempre lo necesitara, pero que también fuera lo suficientemente humana como para cometer errores. Creo que lo importante en cuanto a las representaciones en los libros del género y la raza, es que todos podemos hacer más. Creo que la humanidad podría usar también una inyección mayor de diversidad. En Smallville siempre intentamos hacerlo como serie y continuar como una serie; queríamos hacer cosas como traer a Blue Beetle como Jaime Reyes en lugar de Ted Kord. Queremos la diversidad, no es que sea lo que nos mueve, pero es algo de lo que siempre estamos muy al tanto.

CA: ¿Hay algún personaje que nos puedas adelantar, o algún otro personaje que quieras traer?

BM: En los siguientes seis meses tenemos a Supergirl y a la Legion, el regreso de Lana Lang, y una historia centrada en Lois Lane, ella consigue una historia de 40 páginas toda suya. Y para terminar eso con héroes viejos y nuevos.

CA: Si pudieras traer cualquier personaje aleatorio a Smallville, como el Detective Chimp, ¿cuál sería?

BM: ¡Alguien lo dijo hoy antes! Siempre dije que Renee Montoya, me encantaría verla en algún nivel. The Doom Patrol sería bastante guay. No quieres traser demasiados personajes más porque quitarían la atención de Superman, pero tengo una lista de personajes que me encantaría traer en algún momento.

CA: Última pregunta – estás ahí para salvar el día; ¿en qué dinosaurio te montarías?

BM: Mi dinosaurio favorito es el estegosaurus, pero sería raro montarme en él. Supongo que podrías montarlo entre la zona de las placas con una silla en el costado. Sería lento pero es mi favorito.

- La novela gráfica de la ‘Smallville’ Season 11 se adentra en la etapa de la "Crisis" (herocomplex.latimes.com):

[spoiler]La novela gráfica de la ‘Smallville’ Season 11 se adentra en la etapa de la "Crisis"
Por Jevon Phillips 21 de Abril 21, 2013 | 4:50 p.m.


“Smallville” concluyó su andadura en TV en la CW con su final en Mayo del 2011 en la que vimos al Supermán de Tom Welling finalmente surcar los cielos, pero el momento emocional no señalaba exactamente el final de la serie. Casi un año después, la temporada 11 de la serie llegaba en forma de cómics digital escrito por el antiguo escritor de“Smallville” Bryan Q. Miller, y la pasada semana los primeros 4 números fueron publicados conmo novela gráfica con portada de Cat Staggs e interiores de Pere Perez.

Seis meses después de los eventos de la finale, “Smallville Vol. 1: Guardian” ve cómo Lex Luthor lanza sus “Plataformas Guardianes de Defensa” para repeler a los invasores alienígenas después de lo de Apokolips — pero obviamente tiene otros y más perversos planes en mente:


HC: ¿Como te acercaste a la forma diferente se escribir los cómics en lugar de la television?

BM: Desde el punto de vista de la escritura, lo hice de la misma forma, así es que ciertamente no está escrito de forma distinta — tan sólo está escrito un poquito mayor. Es sobre el tener más espacio y tiempo de contar una historia. No tenemos que preocuparnos sobre el que una historia quepa en 42 minutos de TV — puedes encajarla en 120 páginas a lo largo de 4 meses... La serie, ya que tenía su presupuesto práctico, podías tener episodios en los que prácticamente no hubiera Súper nada. Pero cuando trasladas eso a los cómics, no es un cómic que esté hecho para que sea tan sólo conversacional. Intentamos mantener la acción. Así es que, en respuesta a tu pregunta, tan sólo hay que cambiar los motores para hacer que el cómic vaya orientado un poquito más hacia la acción que hacia la conversación, sin abandonar ninguna de las partes, eso es lo que ha sido el obstáculo. Más un reto que un obstáculo.

HC: No hay ninguna idea en particular de hacer películas para la televisión en el futuro, ¿verdad?

BM: Si las hay, están fuera de mi alcance. No estoy en esas conversaciones. Diría que logística y financieramente, es altamente improbable — pero nunca digas nunca.

HC: ¿Tiene el cómic un arco de temporada como la serie de TV? ¿Es ese el arco de “Guardian”?

BM: El arco de la temporada será como lo hemos hecho en el pasado — como en la temporada 7 iba todo sobre Traveler; en la temporada 8, era sobre Doomsday. En la temporada 9, Zod. Y luego en la 10, era sobre él convirtiéndose en Superman en nuestro arco multi-arco. Así es que en la temporada 11, lo que no es un secreto porque la llevamos un año, va todo sobre la Crisis. Así es que el arco general de “Smallville” para el año es un poco Infinite Crisis, un poco Crisis on Infinite Earths — pero definitivamente tiene que ver con los vigilantes… Es bastante evidente si sabes lo que estás buscando, pero finalmente les dimos un nombre.

HC: ¿Cuánta influencia tienen los creadores de “Smallville” Alfred Gough y Miles Millar en la dirección del cómic?

BM: Los adoro y me ayudaron a que empezara, pero no he hablado con ellos. Estoy solo por mi cuenta, así es que la presión recae enteramente sobre mí en cuandto a impresionar o decepcionar al mismo tiempo. Soporto esa carga

HC: ¿Qué hizo que Pere Perez fuera el artista adecuado para el comic?

BM: Había trabajado con Pere antes, así es que teníamos una muy buena relación y un muy buen código, así es que eso ayudó ciertamente a que consiguiéramos echar a andar el libro. Hemos estado rotando artistas desde entonces [en la serie digital], de la misma manera que rotábamos los directores en la serie de TV, dando a los distintos artistas la oportunidad de romper en el universo con cada episodio. Es una buena manera, pienso, de que muchos artistas diferentes puedan dibujar muchos personajes distintos. Es una manera para todos de poder hacer una historia de Supermán, y es una manera de darle a nuestros espectadores exposición a un artista que auizá no conocerían de otra manera.

HC: ¿Cómo afectan las cosas que están pansando en el universo de los New 52 a lo que haces?

BM: No de una manera directa. Puede que hayan pequeñas cosas o terminología, como A.R.G.U.S., “¡Oh sí, A.R.G.U.S. es algo! Podemos meterlos.” No quiero decir que lo hagamos específicamente, pero esas son los tipos de cosas que podemos sacar de ello. Estamos tratando de tomar de la riqueza de las cosas originales y de las historias pasadas de DC y convertirlas en una divertida historia que ver a través del color de la lente de “Smallville”.

HC: Como alguien que lleva pasando tanto tiempo pensando en Supermán como personaje, ¿qué opinas sobre “Man of Steel”?

BM: Estoy emocionado por verla como todos. Espero que lo haga estupendamente. Espero que todo vaya muy bien y que los niños vayan porque espero que los lectores y espectadores más jóvenes consigan tener a Supermán de nuevo en sus vidas.

- Miller Lleva a Lana Lang a la "Smallville: Season 11" (CBR.com):

[spoiler]Miller Lleva a Lana Lang a la "Smallville: Season 11"
Por Jonah Weiland 06 de Mayo, 2013



El escritor de la "Smallville: Season 11" Bryan Q. Miller estuvo hablando con CBR TV sobre su trabajo en el primer cómic digital del título que detalla la continuación de las aventuras del elenco de la serie de televisión de la CW. Miller, quien también fue escritor de la serie, comenta el regreso de Lana Land al elenco después de que ayudara a despedirla de la serie de televisión, sus objetivos para ella, Clark y el resto del elenco, su recientemente fundada campaña de Kickstarter y más.

Sobre sus objetivos para el cómic de "Smallville": Lo que intento hacer con el libro es el no menospreciar nada de lo que viene de antes. Habrán fans que digan, "¡Puedes arreglar este error o puedes arreglar este otro error!" Eso no -- mucha gente trabajó en la serie durante mucho tiempo, así es que ciertamente no es mi lugar el ir y decir, "Eso fue una mierda. Vamos a arreglar todo eso." Puede que hayan algunos cabos sueltos que podamos unir o algunas cosas como este número de Lana en el que nos reunimos y regresamos para ver a dónde ha ido con su vida y quizá algunso comentarios que vienen con eso, pero ciertamente no estamos con este cómic en el negocio para deshacer las cosas que vienen de antes de la serie. Porque, adoro la serie y tengo un gran respeto por todo lo que vino de hacer esa serie.

Sobre el traer de nuevo a Lana al universo de "Smallville": Eso era un reto, era la historia del "Regreso de Lana", pero también la manera en la que tenemos la historia introduciéndose, es una de nuestras historias entre arcos -- porque hacemos nuetros arcos principales de tres semanasm y luego si es un mes de cuatro o cinco semanas, tenemos historias que se introducen para que no vayamos demasiado alejados del calendario de la versión impresa con lo que la audiencia digital está leyendo. Esta es una de esas historias. Hicimos una con Martian Manhunter el mes pasado -- él solía estar en la serie y no tuvo mucho tiempo en los últimos dos años. Miramos en su pasado. Esto es como nuestra mirada tras la cortina a lo que Lana ha estado haciendo desde que se marchó, a través de los ojos de Lois, porque Lois es quien la encuentra.

Sobre las diferencias de la reacción de los fans a la serie y al cómic: Mucho es lo mismo. es siempre genial el tener internet tan sólo para obvservar como si fuera un barómetro, porque todo el que trabaja en la serie o los escritores desde casa -- es como si estuvieras en un submarino la mayor parte del tiempo. Mandas tus ideas al infinito y realmente, aparte de los números de las ventas o los rátings, la única manera de acertar o equivocarte es el ver las cosas online -- los mensajes en los foros, o Twitter o Facebook o algo como eso. Ha sido, hasta ahora, increíblemente consistente en cuanto a lo qe la gente celebra y lo que la gente condena. Estamos a la par, creo, en cuanto a el cómo va la recepción en los mediso sociales.

Sobre los planes futuros de la serie: Introdujimos Tierra 2 en la S10. Desde entonces hemos sabido, desde que la S11 empezó, que la Tierra 2 ya no está más. Fue destruída y sabamos que seres llamados -- hoy en día -- Monitores son los seres responsables de hacer eso. No estamos seguros de lo que quieren, o por qué lo están haciendo, lo que conseguiremos en un par de arcos, pero hay definitivamente un plan mayor en juego. Haríamos eso en una temporada de la serie, de todas formas. Aquí está la historia de Zod durante el transcurso del año, o la historia de Doosmday en el transcurso del año. Esto es esa historia. No todos los episodios son sobre ello, pero volveremos a ello regularmente a medida que la temporada progresa.

- Bryan Q. Miller Introduce a Wonder Woman en la vida de Clark en la 'Smallville Season 11' (mtv.com):

[spoiler]Bryan Q. Miller Introduce a Wonder Woman en la vida de Clark en la 'Smallville Season 11'
Por Matt D. Wilson 10/05/13 10:23 am EST


Imagen


Over the past year, writer Bryan Q. Miller and a rotating team of artists have been slowly building the universe of "Smallville" into its own, far-reaching superhero continuity in the "Smallville Season 11" digital-first comics series.

In August, that reach will extend a little bit further. "Smallville Season 11" #16 will introduce one of the DC Universe's top-tier characters into the mix, and while she may not necessarily play the role she does in the New 52, she's sure to shake things up. I asked Miller what's in store, and just who this character, a princess from an island, if you were wondering, is.

MTV Geek: From the start of "Smallville Season 11," you've been introducing a lot of DC Universe characters into the world of "Smallville" (Monsieur Mallah!). Was that one of your main goals from the start, to make the Smallville U look more like the larger DCU?

Bryan Q. Miller: The series, in hindsight, can be looked at in chapters, or phases. High school (Seasons 1-4) - like any teenager, Clark's day to day problems consume his life, regardless of what his responsibilities may or may not be. He's struggling to be who HE feels he needs to be, regardless of what his parents, friends, etc. tell him. Then College/post-High School (Seasons 5-7) - Old enough to vote. Old enough to go to war. Not yet old enough to drink. The time when you begin to really sow the seeds for what will eventually become your adult personality. Then the "adult" era (Seasons 8-10) - Pro-active Clark. He starts taking chances. Takes a few wrong turns on the road to hero (by way of vigilante). But accepts his mistakes. He learns from them. He's determined at this point to be a better man. And, all the while, his world becomes larger. Magic. Sci-fi concepts. The Multiverse.

"Season 11" takes that ball and runs with it. He's Superman. He's Clark Kent. He's a reporter. He's become the man both that he wants to be, and that he was always destined to become. Now he needs to use those talents, those gifts, to make the world a better place. Not because anyone's telling him to, but because he KNOWS it's the right thing to do. And as he does that, his world continues to get bigger, and bigger, and bigger. Populated with more heroes. More villains. And now, more Wonder. All of those elements have been present, all along - he just hasn't been able to fly high enough to see the full landscape until Season 11. So the intent isn't to necessarily "make" it line up, but to continue what we've been doing. The last half of the series already placed it within the confines of an aggregate, somewhat independent DCU continuity. I'm just watering the plant.

Geek: When I hear the words "princess" and "island" in reference to a DC comic, my mind definitely goes to a certain place. Is this what I think it is?

Miller: I could not be more excited to say "A thousand times yes!" Diana of Themyscira. Daughter of Queen Hippolyta. Amazon Princess.


Geek: How will this new character differ from the version we're used to seeing in the DCU?

Miller: That's the trick, isn't it? What version ARE we used to seeing? Consistency and Diana don't have a very good relationship with one another. There have been a host of different takes, reboots, re-brands, etc. of late. All have their merits and strengths! For "Smallville," I've tried to mine and exploit the characteristics that, to me, embody the best of any interpretation of Wonder Woman. Strength. Intelligence, Nobility. And, most importantly, Love. But when we first meet Diana, she isn't being called "Wonder Woman" just yet. She's got a very specific mission. There's a very big reason that she left the island, which we'll eventually cover. Does she have the bracelets? Oh, yes. Like you see on the cover. And pants, of course. Regarding the rest of her "traditional" look - something tells me she might find her way to a lasso and some armor by the time all is said and done!

Geek: Will her appearance affect any of the romantic relationships in the book?

Miller: Clark and Lois are happily engaged and have been to hell and back - they're stronger than ever. That said, there will definitely be a bit of a record scratch, but not about who (or between the two people) New 52 readers might expect.

Geek: Characters are definitely different in the "Smallville" continuity, but Monseiur Mallah was basically still a big gorilla. You wrote some episodes of the TV show as well as this comic. Do you have more freedom to cut loose in the comics pages than you did on TV?

Miller: Yes and no. There are certainly things (like the Monkey beat, or the Shuttle disaster from "Guardian") that we never in a million years could have pulled off with any measure of success on the show proper. So I CAN cut loose - there's no financial budget on the stories I'm telling. But there's definitely a "real estate" budget. You only have so many pages and panels to get the story done. Is a certain sequence/gag/action beat/joke worth the page count that might be better spent on character/mystery/romance/etc.? It's a hard line to walk, for sure.

Geek: We've already seen Green Arrow and the JSA in the TV show. Batman and Martian Manhunter have appeared in the comic now. Are you building to the Smallville Justice League?

Miller: Whether or not they're called the "Justice League," we've been building a community of heroes, with Clark at the center, since Season Four of the show. New heroes come in (Impulse; Martian Manhunter; Aquaman; Cyborg; Arrow; Zatanna; the Wonder Twins; Supergirl; Superboy; Booster Gold and Blue Beetle; the aforementioned JSA; the Batman and Nightwing), then retire to their respective corners away from Metropolis. Players have moved onto and off of the board as the years have passed, but Season Eleven is definitely building toward a Crisis that may very well be too big for Superman to handle alone. What's important - and is something we always strived for on the show and I continue to strive toward now, in the comic - is that each hero somehow takes something away from his or her interaction with Clark/Superman. Their lives (just like Clark's) are and should be the better for having crossed paths with the Man of Steel.

- Miller le echa el lazo a Wonder Woman para la "Smallville: Season 11" (CBR.com):

[spoiler]Miller le echa el lazo a Wonder Woman para la "Smallville: Season 11"
Por Jeffrey Renaud 23 de Mayo, 2013


El año pasado, el escritor veterano de televisión Bryan Q. Miller nos ofreció la historia que los fans de "Smallville" han estado pidoendo a gritos durante años con "Detective," protagonizada por Bruce Wayne/Batman, e la primera serie digital de DC Comics, "Smallville: Season 11."

Ahora, Miller tiene previsto desatar otro éxito de verano ya que "Smallville Season 11" #16, con artes de Jorge Jimenez, lanza un nuevo arco titulado "Olympus," con la estrella invitada Diana de Themyscira, la Princesa Amazona que un día se convertirá en Wonder Woman -- una transformación que Miller confirma que ocurrirá hacia el final del arco.

CBR News habló con Miller, quien confió que aunque el origen de Wonder Woman es delicado, ha encontrado una manera accesible de traerla al universo de "Smallville". También reveló que hubo conversaciones preliminares para que ella apareciera en la serie de TV favorita de los fans, pero que el fallido piloto de David E. Kelley truncó esos esfuerzos.

CBR News: El pasado verano, internet "explotó" cuando Batman llegó a "Smallville," y ahora es el turno de Wonder Woman. ¿Fue este siempre el plan, o llevó el éxito de la historia de Detective" a ésta?

Bryan Q. Miller: Siempre tuve a Diana en mente para la temporada, con la versión específica que estoy ejecutando. Era cuestión del cuándo encajarla. La ventaja de hacer Batman es que su origen y su historia pasada es largamente consistente en el tiempo, y muchos de los lectores ya han tenido un resumen del quién es Bruce y cómo trabaja. Con Diana, es un poco más el reto.

Wonder Woman será introducida en "Smallville" como la Princesa Diana y no por su nombre de superheroína. ¿Es esto por temas de licencia, historia, línea temporal, márketing o por alguna otra razón?

Por razones de historia. Ella llegará allñi en el transcurso del arco/episodio. La versión de "Smallville" de su aspecto se desarrollará durante el transcurso del episodio también. Diría que la aproximación es muy como hicimos con nuestra Justice Society of America de dos partes. Conseguimos saber quién es Diana, Y verla cambiar un poco como resultado de su exposición a Supermán, y también algunos vistazos a momentos de su vida en la isla.

¿Hubo alguna vez alguna discusión seria sobre el que ella apareciera en la serie de TV, o es ésta la primera oportunidad de traerla al universo de "Smallville"?

Si la memoria no me falla, hubieron sicusiones preliminares en cómo introducirla como un personaje para un arco corto en la serie. Entonces, justo en mitad de eso, apareció el piloto de [David E.] Kelley y la existencia y el acceso a Diana se esfumó.

Cuando salieron las noticias sobre este arco, dijiste que querías "extraer y explotar las características que, para mí, personifican a la mejor de todas las interpretaciones de Wonder Woman. Fuerza. Inteligencia. Nobleza. y, más importante, amor." ¿Vienen estos atributos por sus acciones, sus palabras o a través de su relación con otros, o más específicamente, Clark Kent?

Es cada parte del cómo aproxima cada situación. Técnicamente, ella es noble. Así es que sus patrones de diálogo, incluso a una edad joven, van a ser muy formales. En cuanto a sus relaciones, ella está un poco perdida en cuanto a la división de clase/género que ha descubierto a su llegada al mundo de los hombres.

No es ingenua para nada -- no se emociona por un helado o la tecnología. Ella es de un mundo que se adentra en las artes mágicas legítimas del Olimpo, criaturas más antiguas que la vida, etc. Un iPhone no va a mandarla a correr por las colinas. Y además, pensar que una sociedad elevada como las Aamazonas no tienen dulces y golosinas deliciosas es una tontería [Risas]

Quiero regresar a la parte del amor de esa frase. Clark y Diana han estado unidos románticamente en los New 52 -- ¿Va eso a entrar en juego en "Smallville" o Lois no tiene nada de lo que preocuparse?

Su 'amor' se refiere a su respeto y conexión con todos los seres vivos. Es donde su fuego por la justicia social brilla más fuertemente. En cuanto a Lois, ella y Clark están comprometidos y ya lo han pasado mal. Están más fuerte que nunca. Hay un triángulo que entra en juego suavemente durante "Olympus," pero no es el que la gente puede esperar.

¿Hay alguna gran diferencia entre cómo ella es mostrada en "Smallville" versus cómo es mostrada en los New 52 o en pasadas interpretaciones? ¿Es de la edad de Clark?

Diría que probablemente es un año mayor que Clark. En este momento, se supone que él tiene 25 -- tenía 14 en el piloto --- así es que sí, ella es quizá un año mayor.

¿Has visto los dibujos de Jorge ya? ¿Qué puedes compartir sobre su look en "Smallville"?

Si pensaste que Jorge hizo un gran trabajo en nuestro arco de Impulse "Haunted", él lo eleva a 11 en "Olympus." Se ve absolutamente fabuloso. En cuanto al look específico de Diana, tendrá tres: su look de vigilante, luego otro, luego otro final. Contar más sobre esas dos siguientes etapas quizá sería revelar demasiado sobre el hacia dónde va la historia y cómo llega ahí.

También adelantaste que ella llega a Smallville con una misión muy específica. ¿hay algo que puedas contarnos sobre la historia?

Ella tiene su propia agenda con la que Supermán y Lois acaban topándose mientras que están en su propia misión en Washington, D.C. Intereses diferentes que terminan estando más alineados de lo que inicialmente pensaban. Eso es todo lo que puedo decir.

A nivel personal, ¿fue esta tu introducción a Wonder Woman? ¿Veías la serie de TV de Lynda Carter? ¿O quizá, como yo, fue los "Super Friends"?

Cuendo era muy pequeño, diría que esas dos fueron probablemente mi primera introducción al personaje. Luego, saltamos a la premiere de los dibujos de la "Justice League". Realmente no tuve ningún acceso práctico a los cómics o a las tiendas de cómics hasta después de la universidad, así es que la siguiente gran exposición sería probablemente la "New Frontier" impresa. Luego la saga de [Gail] Simone y [Greg] Rucka, después.

¿han cambiado tus pensamientos sobre el personaje desde esa introducción inicial y más específicamente, desde que escribes sobre ella para esta serie?

No diría que han cambiado, pero la Diana que nos encontramos en "Olympus" es como una Wonder Woman agregada, tallada de todas las mejores piezas de cada una de esas interpretaciones -- con mi propia versión no sólo a su origen en sí, sino al cómo y el por qúé ella deja la isla. Es complicada, en cuanto al origen, que es por lo que quizá eso siempre cambia. ¿Hecha de barro? ¿Hija de Zeus? Sigue y sigue. La versión de "Smallville" se centra más en quién es ella ahora, en lugar de cómo lo es, si eso tiene sentido.

Antes, mencionaste el fallido piloto de David E. Kelly. Warner Bros. ha tneido dificultades en llevar a Wonder Woman tanto a la TV como al cine, aunque parece que la serie de la CW "Amazon" sigue siendo una posibilidad. ¿Piensas que Wonder Woman podría funcionar fuera de los cómics, y que crees que se necesita para hacer que eso funcione?

Creo que podría funcionar en ambos medios, sin duda. ¿Qué haría para hacerla funcionar? Creo que verás algunas sombras de eso en la versión de "Smallville" de Diana.

¿A quién elegirías para hacer el papel?

No tengo una respuesta para eso. Esa es la nuez más difícil de todas para romper. Tiene que ser perfecta, pero perfecta para una versión específica.

- Entrevista con Bryan Q. Miller: Wonder Woman que una vez se planeó apareciera en la serie de TV Smallville, llega al cómic de la misma (dcwomenkickingass):

[spoiler]Many of DC’s most recognizable superheroes appeared during the long run of TV’s Smallville. Two who did not appear were Batman and Wonder Woman. With Smallville ending its TV run and morphing into a successful digital first comic, Smallville Season 11, the other members of DC’s trinity are now appearing in that universe. Batman first appeared last year during SDCC. This year during SDCC, on Friday July 17, Wonder Woman arrives. Well, not quite Wonder Woman but definitely a soon to be Wonder Woman.

I chatted with writer Bryan Q. Miller about the first appearance of Diana, how she almost appeared on the TV show, and what we can expect from her interactions with Clark and Lois (hint, it sounds awesome). Also, PANTS!



So Diana is finally showing up in Smallville. What was the thinking behind her not showing up on the TV show anyways?

She was almost a part of either Season 9 or 10 (we went as far as to start throwing around ideas for how her arc might go), but then there was discussion of a Wonder Woman TV show so that storyline got put on hold. Rest assured, we hadn’t gotten far enough down the line to get to casting or writing her part. We were excited, though!

What is your first exposure to Wonder Woman in comics? Any favorite moments?

Sadly, comics didn’t enter into my reading life until very late - didn’t grow up around a shop, so my only exposure to Big Two characters was through television and movies. So, I suppose my FIRST-first exposure to Diana was “Super Friends." Followed much later by the Justice League family of cartoons. In comics-proper, my big “in" to regular reading was “New Frontier." So, THAT Diana, the one going toe-to-toe with Superman over America’s grasp/reach and social justice, surrounded by female freedom fighters, that was the notion of “Wonder Woman" that imprinted on me most.

This is a young Diana before she’s become a “Wonder Woman" woman, correct? Tell me a bit about your process and thinking to figure out what a less fully mature Diana would be like? What’s she need to work on? I gotta say that awesome cover by Cat Staggs makes her look a bit, um, what’s another word for cocky?

Yes. By the time we meet her at the top of “Olympus," no one’s calling her anything in particular - though word is starting to spread about a vigilante in Washington D.C. - a “woman in white." But, to say that simply because she doesn’t have proper WW accoutrements informs her being any less “mature" might be inaccurate. She’s a displaced royal on a very specific mission (which I won’t get into just yet, as that hits spoiler territory). That said, she’s a bit single-minded. Diana at this point in her life has a blind spot for anything that deviates from her mission. Clark will challenge her to take the blinders off a little bit. And, as for the wonderful smirk Cat gave her on the first cover, perhaps “over-confident" is more appropriate?

Wonder Woman isn’t wearing her traditional costume but pants. Tell me a bit about how you came up with the look? Which do you prefer? Are these Amazon pants or off the shelf pants?

“You know what Lois like to see when she gets home? Pants. Pants on everyone." As for these pants, they’re store-bought. Or maybe “borrowed." We’ll get to a more traditional look (or an amalgam of the various “traditional" takes) later in the arc. I had one idea for that one. Jorge took it, and ran with it and gave it his own twist, and it looks GREAT. As for her “vigilante" look when we meet her, we were going for something a little more urban combat-y. Pockets. Knives. Hair up. Some of her Agent Diana Prince look, mixed in with a bit of her (in hindsight, unjustly) lamented “Odyssey" look. Of course, we’d be remiss to not have her bracelets/gauntlets. She can’t NOT have those. Therein lies madness.

Clark and Diana have never met before in the Smallville version of DCU - are we going to get to hear internal monologues about their take on each other? Give me a word that hints at what they each think

No internal monologues! NONE! As for what they think of each other, there’s loads of mutual respect. Clark’s word for her would be “potential," and Diana’s for Clark/Superman would be “mighty."

The relationships between Clark, Lois and Diana are quite a bit different here then in the new 52. Will Lois and Diana interact? If so what can we expect to see?

Not only do Lois and Diana interact, they end up back-to-back in combat! Clark and Lois have both come to DC on a story — each gets a direction of investigation out of it, and all roads lead back to Diana (with a detour through the D.E.O.).

Wonder Woman has faced some challenges in getting into live action TV again most recently with the CW passing on Allen Heinberg’s script and moving on to another writer. What’s the biggest thing you think the character has to overcome?

Her origin has changed too much over time; there isn’t a proper-Zeitgeist “even kids recognize it" Krypton/Crime Alley “accessible" origin. It’s very hard for people to hear either “made of clay" or “daughter of Zeus" and immediately jump to “Diana Prince a.k.a. Wonder Woman"! So, perhaps, the larger thing to embrace isn’t so much who she was, but who she is. Now. In the present. For our Smallville take, we spend some time flashing back to origins of pieces of her personality/mission, but skirt around the dicier details of “godhood" - for now, they aren’t relevant to the story we’re telling. That said, I’ll double back and say, for a series, you certainly need that backstory. There’s an impulse (somewhat rightly so) in television to keep characters grounded/relatable for fear of alienating viewers. There’s a way to maintain the more Olympian aspects of Diana’s origin/powers - I just don’t know that the perfect balance has been found yet. Which is probably why we haven’t seen a version on screen that really sings.

I constantly have people telling me how much they love the Smallville Season 11 comic - any insight into when we might see Season 12?

As we all know, comics change with the weather, so I’m focusing all my energies on telling THIS season of stories. Not sure how many episodes we’re going to wind up having in the end, but I know exactly what the finale arc is and how it unfolds.

Smallville between the show and comic has had a majority of the female DCU heroes - anyone from the show you’d like to see show up in print?

The only ones left on the list from the show itself are Mia and Dinah, and both are on the way (eventually).

Great! Finally, so if CW makes a Wonder Woman show or WB makes a Wonder Woman movie any thoughts on who should play … Steve Trevor?

For TV, that’s a crap-shoot - it all depends on the age (etc.) of their Diana. For a feature, I’d throw some attention at Chris Pine for Steve. Either way, that’s the central relationship. That’s the magic. Casting Steve off of Diana (and vice versa) is how you make the magic work. Like Castle and Beckett. Or Lois and Clark. Sam and Diane.

- BRYAN Q. MILLER Lleva a los "TEEN TITANS" a SMALLVILLE (Newsarama):

[spoiler]BRYAN Q. MILLER Lleva a los "TEEN TITANS" a SMALLVILLE
Por Vaneta Rogers, 03 Octubre 2013 05:10 PM ET


Imagen


Un equipo de Titanes están visitando Smallville esta semana, a medida que los lectores de la serie de TV convertida en cómics descubren más sobre la escuela de Jay Garrick para los "dotados."

La escuela fue mencionada en un reciente número de la primera serie digital de Smallville: Season 11, el cómic escrito por Bryan Q. Miller que sigue con la continuidad de la serie de televisión Smallville.

Empezando esta semana, en una historia digital de cuatro semanas titulada "Smallville: Titans", los lectores conseguirán ver la versión del universo de Smallville de personajes como Conner Kent (Superboy), Mia Dearden (Speedy), Jaime Reyes (Blue Beetle) y Zan y Jayna (The Wonder Twins).

No es la primera vez que Miller ha escrito al equipo de Titanes — su primera intervención en los cómics fue escribiendo una historia para los Teen Titans en el 2009. Junto a su actual cómic de Smallville, Miller ha estado trabajando en otros proyectos de cómics, incluyendo un título subvencionado mediante Kickstarter titulado "Earthward", y también la serie de TV de Syfy "Defiance".

El especial de los Titans llega a la serie cuando ésta cambia su sistema de numeración a la de las mini-series. Tras el final del arco argumental de la historia de "Olympus" (en el que Wonder Woman fue introducida en el universo de Smallville), el cómic de Smallville empezará con un nuevo número #1 issue y un nuevo arco histórico titulado "Smallville: Aliens".

Newsarama habló con Miller sobre el especial de los Titans y el futuro del cómic de Smallville.

Newsarama: Bryan, ¿cómo ha sido en general el expandir el universo de Smallville a través de los cómics, y por qué se ha cambiado al sistema de las mini-series y especiales en lugar de seguir adelante como hasta ahora?

Bryan Q. Miller: Por lo que sé, cambiamos los motores un poco para ayudar a bajar el factor intimidatorio para nuevos y potenciales lectores. Si estás en la tienda digital, y ves "Smallville Season 11: Capítulo 70," eso es como el que te griten "¡Realmente estás atrasado en tu lectura!" Así es que el regresar al #1 con cada nuevo arco histórico ayuda a eso.

Nrama: ¿Cuál fue la motivación para el especial de los Titans?

Miller: ¿Aparte de jugar con una versión de los Teen Titans? Superboy. Hemos estado haciendo historias "paralelas" que son más cortas que los arcos principales y que van paralelos a ellos, desde un punto de vista narrativo. Tuvimos algunas locuras asombrosas que estaban ocurriendo mientras que transicionábamos de nuestro anterior arco principal de Supergirl ("Argo") a nuestro arco actual de Wonder Woman ("Olympus") que dictaron que empezáramos la siguiente historia paralela antes de que "Olympus" acabara. Así es que tenemos una nueva y menor historia empezada, con alguien relacionado con la serie per5o que no está involucrado en toda la locura de Washington D.C. del arco prinicpal… y ya que menicionamos que Conner (a quien nos encontramos por primera vez en la Season 10) estaba en la escuela para los "dotados" en San Francisco durante "Olympus"… puedes ver hacia dónde vamos.

Nrama: Aparte de Conner, ¿qué otros personajes veremos en le número?

Miller: ¡Jaime Reyes! ¡Megan Morse! ¡Mia Dearden! ¡Zan y Jayna y cualquiera que sean sus apellidos! ¡y su mentor/profesor, Jay Garrick! Y también un villano con el que no nos hemos encontrado, pero que tiene vínculos con algunas piezas de la Season 10.

Nrama: Has descrito dónde está Conner, ¿pero puedes describirnos el estatus de algunos de los principales personajes de los Titans cuando empiezan esta historia?

Miller: Puedo, pero entonces eso se metería en algunas de las revelaciones como el por qué han acudido a la escuela de Garrick para empezar, lo que desvelamos en la historia de cuatro semanas a medida que se desarrolla.

Nrama; ¿Cuáles son algunas de las más interesantes relaciones que has conseguido plasmar?

Miller: Seguro, hay tensión entre Jay y Conner. Conner se ha puesto una "S" en el pecho, y toda la responsabilidad que se deriva de eso. Y Jay ha visto a "pequeños gamberros" ir y venir durante toda su vida. "Scion" en la Season 10 fue sobre el cómo Conner luchaba contra sus genes de Luthor y Kent. Titans lo ve intentando descubrir cómo no dejar perder esa regla de los instintos básicos en cada dirección, y ser él mismo. Y, para delicia de algunos fans de la Young Justice fans, hay una buena oportunidad de que Conner y Megan puedan pasar algún tiempo solos.

Nrama: ¿Es una historia paralela, o va más allá en los temas/evolución de los personajes que has estado explorando en la principal?

Miller: Es una historia paralela, pero se enlaza con los últimos momentos de "Olympus" — aunque el lector leerá el final de "Olympus" primero.

Nrama: ¿Qué puedes contarnos sobre los artes de esta historia?

Miller: ¡Cat Staggs, quien hace nuestra portadas e hizo todos los interiores de una de nuestras anteriores historias parallelas, "Valkyrie," regresa fuerte para Titans!

Nrama: ¿Qué viene ahora para el cómic de Smallville, al cambiar la serie a mini-serie?

Miller: Smallville: Alien — nuestra historia global del año establece una raza de seres inter-dimensionales llamados Monitors. Ellos destruyeron Earth 2, y nuestros héroes saben que hay algo llamado "The Crisis" que está llegando. En Alien, un Monitor literalmente cae en la Tierra en Rusia. Supermán y Lex saben lo valioso que es el poder conseguir tiempo cara a cara con uno, y se vuelve en una carrera, con algunas complicaciones debido a las identidades secretas.

Nrama: Llegaste a los cómics del mundo de la televisión, y ahora tienes otros proyectos en ambos medios. ¿En qué más estás trabajando?

Miler: En los cómics, la versión digital de mi Kickstarter, "Earthward", va a llegar a los que apoyaron el proyecto en los próximos días y veremos la versión impresa antes de Navidad. Luego, el próximo mayo, tengo "Space Mountain" que sale a través de los comics de Disney.

En TV, acabo de mandar mi borrador de mi episodio de la S2 de "Defiance" de Syfy, que el mundo verá quizá creo que en Julio.

Nrama: Para terminar, viendo la preview del primer número de esta semana de Smallville: Titans, ¿hay algo más que quieras deciele a los fans sobre la historia?

Miller: Mucha acción. Mucho corazón. Mucha angustia. ¡Son los Teen Titans, después de todo!

- Bryan Q. Miller Nuevo y reluciente Superman en "Smallville: Alien" (CBR):

[spoiler]Following a very successful continuation of the hit TV series "Smallville" as a digital-first comic book series, DC Comics is extending "Smallville: Season 11" with brand new miniseries "Smallville: Alien."

At the end of "Smallville: Season 11," Superman revealed to the President -- and consequently the world -- that he was an alien, the last son of Krypton. Not surprisingly, this announcement was received with mixed reviews and that's where "Smallville: Alien" picks up the story.

No doubt inspired by the real-life Chelyabinsk asteroid, a meteor has crashed in Russia and this one is carrying an intergalactic passenger. Superman, still adjusting to his new status quo, finds himself racing against Lex Luthor to Russia and finds a Monitor (and the Rocket Red Brigade) when he arrives.

With the first three chapters of the digital first comic released this week in print and the fourth chapter set to be released digitally on Friday, CBR News connected with series writer and former "Smallville" executive story editor Bryan Q. Miller, who discussed how the teachings of Pa Kent work well in today's Twitter age, why Chloe Sullivan-Queen continues to work as a character and why introducing the Monitor to the "Smallville" mythos continues a long line of supervillain succession making the leap from DCU proper to the TV series-inspired digital first franchise.



CBR News: Bryan, the title of this miniseries is branded with the same label Superman is now has following the events of "Smallville: Season 11." He's an alien and the world knows it. An announcement like that no doubt comes with its detractors.

Bryan Q. Miller: Coming out as an alien and the repercussions of such an announcement has certainly always been a concern for Clark. And was always a concern for his parents too. There was an episode back in "Smallville" Season 8 called "Infamous," which was kind of a time loop episode. At that point in his life, Clark came out and said he was an alien and things did not go very well. Due in part to that experience, he's backed off revealing his true nature up until this point.

But also, he wasn't mature enough in his own personal journey at that time to handle the consequences of that announcement -- that polarizing announcement. He's in a different place now. If he's comfortable flying around in tights and a cape than he's a little better equipped to the public reaction of him being from another planet.

"Find your center, stand your ground and say your piece." Pa Kent gives this encouragement to young Clark in a flashback early in "Smallville: Alien" and Superman later reflects on this wisdom from his father as he listens to the world react to the news that he is an alien. We could all learn something from Pa Kent, couldn't we?

I think it also boils down to this: "Don't read the comments." [Laughs] It's very easy to get caught up in perception, especially in the Twitter Age, the trolling age. It can be very easy to get lost in the tall grass and what people are saying. And that's especially true with what Clark is going through right now. He knew going in that revealing his identity to the President, to the world, that he is alien, that people would have a polarized reaction to it. And sometimes the negative voices sound a lot louder than the positive ones.

Over the years and seasons, you've told "Smallville" stories based in Smallville, Metropolis -- all over the United States American cities, but "Smallville: Alien" starts in Russia. Does the location itself affect the tone/sensibility of the story or are long-held Cold War sensibilities a thing of the past?

I think it's still there a little bit. Every now and again, we're reminded the story is set in Russia but this is very much, more of an isolated Lex/Clark story. And hopefully, it's like the Lex/Clark stories that people who watched the show liked. It's the two of them isolated on the other side of the globe and the stakes get very, very high very, very quickly.

After 11 seasons of "Smallville" and 70-plus years of stories featuring Superman and Lex Luthor, how do you keep the relationship/rivalry fresh?

What we have in "Smallville: Season 11" and this miniseries, which extends Season 11 as we've moved past traditional numbering, is a world where after Season 10, Lex returns from quote/unquote the dead and his sister taints him with a memory loss drug so he has emerged from death into a world where there is a Superman and he has no memory of him. For this Lex and this Clark, this is one of the few times that Clark has been way out in front of Lex in terms of what he knows. And Clark tries to take control of the relationship.

But there is a danger too. There is an instinctual residue, I don't know what else to call it, that Lex has seen this played out all before but he can't place his finger on why or how. He just knows that he hates Superman. And he overcompensates for this hatred because he's a god amongst men. He's not comfortable with that because no one should have that much power. And there is something that even Lex knows is tied to his old life. There is this constant waiting game between Clark and the rest of our heroes, which is will Lex ever remember what he already knew? And if and when he does, what the hell are they going to do about it?

Clark is definitely in control of the situation for now, but there is also a danger that at any point, the dangerous version of Lex Luthor could remember everything that he knows is true about Superman and believes to be true. That is the underlying tension of this new phase of their relationship.

In "Smallville: Alien," Lex and Clark are investigating a Monitor. Unlike Batman, Wonder Woman or even previously lesser known properties like Green Arrow or Justice Society of America, the Monitor is fairly obscure DCU reference for non-comic book readers. When introducing a concept like the Monitor, how much backstory do you feel is necessary as many of your readers, I would guess, started as fans of the TV series?

On the TV show, once you hit Season 5, which is when Brainiac showed up, that's when the fabric of the show started to change. You had these larger arcs with bag bads that were DC villains. You had Brainiac in Season 5, we had criminals from the Phantom Zone in Season 6 and that transitioned into Bizarro. In Season 7, we had a bunch of Krypton stuff, we had Zor-El, we had Brainiac again, we went into Doomsday territory in Season 8, Zod in Season 9 and then we did a valiant attempt at Darkseid in Season 10. We had all kinds of stuff. It's very much in the DNA of "Smallville" to spoonful of sugar larger DC villain concepts to the viewers and now the readers.

With the Monitor, what we've done -- and this goes back to the premiere, to "Guardian," which was, good lord, a year-and-a-half ago -- is go back to the end of the first main arc to start planning it. We revisited it in "Haunted" when we showed Chloe from Earth 2. She wound up on our Earth and she died but Chloe found her memories and we saw what happened at the end of her world and there are Monitor ships in the sky so there were little bits and pieces, teases of the Monitor, for some time that we were Easter-egging for comic folk but at the same time, trying to create a larger threat that the reader can access without knowing too much.

After "Alien," there will be a lot more and everybody will know what the Monitors are and what they do and why they do it, which is why we brought one down to Earth. We wanted Clark and Lex to get some face time.

And we get Rocket Red Brigade in "Smallville: Alien too -- another killer concept.

Yes. And I won't say how just yet but the introduction of the Rocket Red Brigade does tie into something we've already done during the course of "Smallville: Season 11." There is a nice little reward for folks that have been around since Chapter 1.

Also, introducing Red Rocket Brigade gives a larger sense of the world post-"Smallville" Season 10. At the end of Season 10, Akropolis came out of the sky and Superman pushed it back into the sky with his bare hands. In the book, it's an event we call Contact and it was a paradigm shifting event. It doesn't just affect Smallville or Metropolis, it affects everywhere. That's why whenever we can this season, we're getting outside our comfort zone. We're going to Gotham, we're going to Africa for a story, we're doing what we can to broaden the horizons and give the world some extra depth and I think with us in Russia, having the Rocket Red Brigade show up just helps it feel more real for everyone that is reading.

Rocket Red Brigade isn't so big that they require their own story but you can add them as element to this larger story without having to dedicate too much page time to them. You couldn't do that with Batman. Batman has to have his own story but with Rocket Red Brigade, they're great characters, it's a great concept and it also helps give Russia some realness as our heroes are over there.

You mentioned Chloe from Earth 2, but can you talk a bit about Chloe of our Earth? She's certainly a fan-favorite from the TV series but she never really caught on in the DCU. Why does the character work and are you happy to be writing her and giving her a place to continue her growth in "Smallville: Season 11" and beyond?

There were three ages to the show: Seasons 1-4, Seasons 5-7 and Seasons 8-10. In the beginning, Chloe was very much the eyes through which the audience experienced all of the weirdness and the people with meteor powers. Your heart hurt for her when Clark wouldn't love her back. There was a transitional period too where she was kind of Oracle-esque and became her own entity. And by the end of the show, she became Watchtower, who was a hero in her own right as she coordinated all of the heroes.

She's a great character to work with and having her come back now in crisis, as it were, because she's pregnant is great too. She and Oliver have stepped out of the limelight to try and raise a baby and take a turn away from danger. Chloe lost her mom at an early age to illness. Her mom was institutionalized and she didn't really know her at all. Ollie lost his parents when he was very young too so he knows what it's like to not have a whole family. Whether or not it's realistic for everybody and they get dragged back into the hero world or not is another thing, but they're at least trying to do what's right for their baby.

You'll see in this week's chapter coming up, there is some yearning in her for getting back to that life she left behind but the reality is that this decision might be for the best. We'll see some of that conflict come out. She and Lois have a side adventure as part of this story.

The first print issue of "Smallville: Season 11" dropped this week, but the first three chapters have already been released digitally. Can you bring us up to speed where we are with the weekly without spoiling too much for the print readers?

Like you said, it's a tricky balance. What's coming in the next three weeks of digital releases is that Batman enters the fray. He came into "Smallville" Season 11 in a big way during "Detective" and again in the Martian Manhunter arc called "Effigy," but now there is seemingly a Superman-related hate crime that occurs in the wake of his alien announcement so Lois and Chloe saddle up to look into it and as always, things are not as easy as they would appear. They get pulled into a big Gotham adventure with Batman and Nightwing.

"Smallville: Alien" is slated for 12 digital chapters (four print issues) and as you mentioned it continues the story from "Smallville: Season 11" but it isn't specifically tagged that way. Once this story is done, can we expect "Smallville Season 12" or is there another miniseries in the pipeline?

The cover of "Smallville: Alien" #1 states underneath the title, "Season 11 continues," so every mini, every special from here on out is still part of "Season 11" even though it doesn't have "Season 11" in the title. We were heading into Chapter 70. In what I believe is a very smart way to get folks into the book again, because I don't think anyone can be blamed if they want jump into a series and not want to go back all the way to Chapter 1, we've started this miniseries to continue the story. Having those new #1 issues will help people greatly slide into the series. And then once they're hooked, they can play catch-up.

Will readers ever see "Smallville Season 12?"

I am so snowblind being in Season 11 because there is still so much more to come but I know how it ends, I know when it ends and that's the goal right now. Once we're done, we can figure out what happens after. You don't think about the next marathon you're going to run while you're still running the first one. [Laughs]

But the story continues beyond "Smallville: Alien"?

Oh yes, but I can't say how. What I can say is that we're introducing another big DC guest star into the "Smallville" mythos.

Smallville está a punto de volverse mágica. La serie digital de DC Comics basada en la serie de TV toma un camino supernatural en una nueva historia protagonizada por Zatanna y John Constantine.

La mágicamente poderosa Zatanna, más conocida por conjurar hechizos diciendo las palabras hacia atrás, regresa al mundo de Clark Kent y Co. en "Harbinger," una historia que empieza este Viernes y que se desarrolla de forma paralela a la principal narrativa del cómic. Introducida en la Season 8 de la serie de TV (interpretada por Serinda Swan), Zatanna está ahora en Londres. "Ella ha llevado su show a la carretera, usando su tour como tapadera para delatar y tratar con todas las cosas que su padre ha liado/encantado/embrujado y que dejó atrás cuando murió," dice Bryan Q. Miller, quien escribe la extensión en los cómics de la serie. "Para cuando nos pongamos al día con ella en 'Harbinger,' ella está acercándose al último objeto de esa lista."

Añadid a Constantine, el vulgar y fumador compulsivo detective oculto Inglés, quien tiene una larga y complicada historia con Zatanna. "Él y Zee butt se encargan de cómo tratar con el último objeto maldito de su padre," adelanta Miller sobre la primera aparición del personaje de DC Cómics en el universo de Smallville. "Fue robado de Constantine y quiere recuperarlo... para que puede venderlo al más alto postor."

Los nuevos capítulos de Smallville están disponibles los viernes en readdcentertainment.com y via la app de DC Comics, iBookstore, Nook Store y Kindle Store. Las colecciones impresas se publican cada mes.

Por Jeffrey Renaud, Staff Writer 05 Junio, 2014


Bryan Q. Miller started his decade-and-counting long run on "Smallville" in 2004 when he joined the popular TV series as intern during Season Five. He was hired as a writers' assistant for Season Seven and after completing the WB Writers' Workshop, was promoted to staff writer for Season Eight. And when "Smallville" completed its 218-episode run with Season 10, he was serving as Executive Story Editor. His time with the franchise didn't end there as he has been writing the digital-first "Smallville: Season 11" for DC Comics since its launch in 2012.

Fully invested in the TV series' mythos, Miller told CBR News that the multi-arc comic book series is heading towards its climax and the upcoming miniseries titled "Smallville: Season 11 - Chaos" brings Clark, Lois and Lex closer than ever to the Crisis that the series has been building toward since its inception. But before the climatic crisis strikes, Lois and Clark must survive a wild adventure through the Bleed -- an event triggered when Lex Luthor and Ted Kord join forces to fire up a supercollider in Antarctica.

Miller also discussed the multi-layered storytelling a digital-first comic allows him to tell, why writing super-geniuses like Lex, Ted, Michael Holt and Bruce Wayne offers a unique power-set to superhero comics and teased which classic DCU characters will be making guest appearances in "Smallville: Season 11 - Chaos," which takes flight online Friday, June 6; the print collection goes on sale August 13.

CBR News: The next arc on "Smallville: Season 11" is called "Chaos." Whenever I hear the term "chaos," I think of Dr. Malcolm from "Jurassic Park." Does this upcoming arc deal with chaos theory like Dr. Malcolm investigated -- which is the basically the study of our present not affecting our future -- and if it does affect it, it's only by chance?

Bryan Q. Miller: In this arc, chaos is a little less about the science of the story and a little more about the very nature of what's happening in the story. A lot of things for the season are coming to a head and we have three stories happening simultaneously throughout the course of the arc. And each one is very crazy, very big and epic in its own way. Literally, by design, it is chaotic thus the title "Chaos."

From the solicitations we know that Lex is looking to invest in Ted Kord's new supercollider experiments in the Antarctic. When we saw Ted Kord on the "Smallville" TV series, we also met Jaime Reyes -- are we going to get some Blue Beetle action in "Chaos?"

You'll see Ted, in action, in a sense. What we set up in "Smallville: Season 11" back in "Detective," which featured the first appearance of Batman, was that Bruce Wayne comes to Metropolis, he has a meeting with Lex about the joint WayneTech-Holt Corp supercollider that's being built in Antarctica. And Lex is not interested in joining the funding of that project. He has more pressing things to do. When we visited the scientific compound in Antarctica at the start of the "Argo" arc, we caught up with Booster Gold and Blue Beetle, who were serving as security. Given the events of the rest of the season, including what Lex experienced in "Alien, when he went face-to-face with one of the Monitors and saw what damage one of the Monitors could do and in an interesting way, some stuff spinning out of the events of the "Lantern" arc, which concluded last week, Lex heads to Antarctica to reconsider the prospects of joining the supercollider project but of course, to his own nefarious end.

Superhero comics are so often forged in the brawn of its characters but when you are focusing on the brainiacs of the DCU -- Lex Luthor, Bruce Wayne, Michael Holt and Ted Kord -- and their personal sides, does that allow for a different brand of storytelling?

Having worked on the TV series and its comics for 10 years, "Smallville" is very much an environment that the person behind the mask -- even though we didn't have masks -- always came first. There was always a personal side to everything. The secret identity was always at stake. And today, when writing characters like Lex, even with his underpinning supervillain trying to creep out, there is a still a grounded element to him, a personal side to him that we have access to. There is still humanity with Lex, which is very, very important when you are doing Lex Luthor.

And Lois is heading to Antarctica too. Have Ted Kord and his team of scientists discovered something special that warrants coverage from the Daily Planet?

She's there and she has an exclusive through the Planet for the official first firing of the WayneTech-Kord Industries-HoltCorp supercollider. Of course, because Lois is there for that, you can expect something to go very, very wrong. She doesn't know that going in but trouble just tends to follow her no matter how far below the equator she goes.

Obviously, this is fiction, and specifically comic books, but have you been following the discoveries being made in Switzerland at the Large Hadron Collider and does that research at all inspire what you are doing here?

In a sense, yes, but in our story, the supercollider and the firing of it are just the starting point of the adventure, for actually two of the three adventures. It sets two stories in two different directions. Not really, too close to the nitty-gritty of actual science but enough that a passing person would say, "Oh yeah. I have heard of the Higgs boson supercollider." There is just enough science to make it have some semblance of sense so that the events of this story have a starting point that people can understand.

You mentioned there are three storylines. One, obviously, is the Lex storyline. Is Lois' story tied into that one or is that its own separate story?

The two stories branch off at a specific point. On the cover for the first print issue and the digital cover for weeks 1, 2 and 3, it's Superman chasing Lois through a red rift. And that red rift, as we've seen a few times in "Smallville: Season 11" is the Bleed, which is the energy that fills the space between the realities of the Multiverse that the Monitors can weaponize and use. If you connect the dots, you can assume something goes wrong with the supercollider and then Lois and Clark end up on an adventure through at least a corner of the Multiverse as it's under siege from the Monitors, who are annihilating everything.

We've talked about this before but one of the beauties of the medium -- digital comics -- is that you can have a full-fledged war with Monitors in the Bleed in "Smallville: Season 11," something which would have been difficult to produce during the run of the TV series.

One of the things that we have done during "Smallville: Season 11," and it's been fantastic, is get a new artist on board to draw each arc. On the TV show, we had a new director for each episode. We rarely had the same director twice in a row, so you get a slightly different feel and mood and tone for each episode. With every artist/inker/colorist team, we get a different feel for each episode. The unique thing about "Chaos" as an arc is that once, much like we did in Season 10 of the show with Luthor, and our first trip into the idea of parallel Earths, when Clark swapped country mouse/city mouse-style with a Clark raised by Lionel Luthor instead of the Kents, we get to see that Earth Two, as we called it, the visual look of Earth Two was different. It was dark and dingy and metallic. While Earth on "Smallville" was always warm and full of color.

The great thing about this arc is that when Lois and Clark are lost into the rift, when they visit each different world, we are rotating artists into each of those different worlds. The main story, which are the two other stories happening back on the regular "Smallville" Earth, are being done by the same artist but when we travel, we give each world a different look with a different artist. That's super exciting. We have Agustin Padilla on the main story for the arc and we also have visits from Daniel HDR and Marcelo Di Chiara.

The Lex story is one. Lois and Clark traveling through the Bleed is two. What's the third story?

The third story is the chaos that is happening back in Metropolis where there is a dilemma and a quarantine situation regarding a little something called the Eclipso gem. And Superman is gone so who is going to save the day? That's a surprise so we can't get into that just yet.

I was going to ask you about Booster Gold but are we going to see another classic DCU character make his or her "Smallville debut" in this arc?

No. It's some returning favorites. And because he is security at the supercollider facility, if something were to go down and Lex was forced to stay in Antarctica, Booster would definitely come stumbling into that.

You mentioned earlier that we were nearing the climax of "Smallville: Seaason 11." Are we coming to the end of the series too?

I would say that the Crisis is closer than it's ever been. Crisis has been looming all year and the events of "Chaos" bring us closer to it than we have been all year.

And what about "Smallville: Season 12?"

I am still mired in finishing the weekly "Season 11" [Laughs]. That's like asking someone that still hasn't crossed finish line in one 25km marathon what they are going to do for their next marathon. [Laughs] I'm just hitting my water cups and looking at the ground and heading toward that finish line.

[spoiler]Bryan Q. Miller Habla sobre la ‘Smallville: Season 11,’ ‘Arrow’ y ‘Dominion’ de SyFy
Por Kyle Wilson 13 de Junio, 2014


Bryan Q. Miller is a man who worked his way up in the business to become one of the busiest writers of nerd-dom, with his hands in some of the most iconic comics and television series. He’s given voice to Clark Kent in Smallville in both live-action and the funny books, he’s written Oliver Queen and Co. on the CW’s Arrow, not to mention a revolutionary run of the Batgirl comics and his upcoming work on SyFy’s Defiance and freshman show Dominion (a continuation of the Paul Bettany film Legion).

Bryan’s a cool guy and was nice enough to carve out some time at Phoenix Comicon to indulge my love of all things Smallville and some of the other exciting projects he’s worked on.

The Smallville: Season 11 comics adapted the mini-series format after the conclusion of the Olympus storyline. What was the reasoning behind switching the numbering and “Season 11″ header in the title?

I think it’s because we got so long in the tooth, numbering-wise. Reverting to #1 for each storyline was to help, especially for print readers, to not give them a little bit of sticker shock. “Issue 28?! Well, if it’s a continuous season I don’t want to go back and buy 27 issues.” So I think that was probably the biggest reasoning behind it, so that every four issues we go back to a new #1.

That makes sense and makes it less daunting when someone does pick up a higher issue that would be the equivalent of #28…

Even though it is! Even though it doesn’t say it on the front…

I admit I was a little confused at first. I wasn’t sure if these were side-stories or different continuities from the main part of Season 11, but once I opened the first one it was very clear.

On the apps is where it gets tricky. If you have subscriptions setup, every time a new arc starts you have to re-subscribe.

Smallville: Chaos is the arc that just started (June 6th) so how many more arcs do we have left before the season ends? One? Two?

I know how many!

Ah, but you can’t tell us!

But I cannot reveal how many. But we are getting there. We’re closer to the finale than we’ve ever been.

It seems like judging from the first issue of Smallville: Chaos that we might be getting into some world jumping with Clark and Lois?

Yes, they’re going to be lost in the Multiverse, or what’s left of the Multiverse, for a little while. Just to give us an idea of how big the threat the Monitors pose (see Smallville: Alien). What we’re going to do, which is pretty cool from a timing standpoint as well, is every time they go to a different world, we go to a different artist. So the main story back on our Earth happens with Agustin [Padilla] through the whole arc, then we switch out, I think, two different artists for the Multiverse.

Did you specifically choose the artists that you’re using?

Yes and no. There is a talent pool that is broken up amongst [DC's] Digital, of people that are and aren’t available. So yes, in the picking of the kickball teams way, yes.

One of my favorite things about these comics are Cat Staggs’ covers.

Yeah, she’s fantastic.

Another element I really enjoy are the design choices for the new characters and outfits. Superman’s Green Lantern outfit is so, so cool. How closely do you work with the artist on these designs?

A bunch. I think what I described in the script with Marcio… it was great because I did my Kickstarter [Earthward - check it out] with him and I already had a good short hand and a very good relationship and I know how fast he can work, sometimes to my editor’s chagrin, but I knew Marcio would pull it through.

We had talked about from Mass Effect, the Engineer design with the hard light that appears over things and that the ring would, rather than make a green and black costume, would make a black bottom [suit] and everything else, like the costume itself, was a glowing construct of the ring itself. So that’s kind of what we went for and since every ring reacts differently with its user, that everyone’s armor would look different based on how they created them.

The Batman costume was interesting as well. I’ve never seen that sort of look before. He has the blue… exposed…

Facepaint? Warpaint?

Yeah, what inspired that design?

It was at first a little bit of a nod to Batman Beyond. Because he definitely, when we first met him, had a red symbol on his chest. It made the red sunlight. But also it was to help give him the demon appearance like in Batman Begins when The Scarecrow sees him and he’s all black like a gargoyle. So that it’s much scarier and from Bruce’s standpoint, smarter to not even show what race he is when he’s running around as Batman, because his mouth and chin are totally visible. So it’s both to instill fear and as a precautionary measure.

It feels like there’s a lot of backstory left to tell with this Bruce Wayne. Especially having a completely unique Robin (Barbara Gordon). Dick Grayson is NOT the current Robin.

But he does exist! We have set that up.

There are some fun lines of dialogue involving him.

And there will be some more.

Will this Batman get his own spin-off to flesh his story out or will it be contained within the Smallville line?

As far as I’m concerned, he’s a fabric of the show – with quotes. Just as he popped in during Smallville: Lantern and Smallville: Alien even though Gotham is a different city, the world of Smallville is so large now that you can go to other cities to have things happen in episodes. Just like when we first did Oliver Queen [on the Smallville TV series] and he was just in for like six episodes, that’s how he became a larger part of the show itself. So we’re doing the same thing with Batman.

Speaking of Oliver, you’ve co-written a few episodes of The CW’s Arrow. Was it weird having to write two very different versions of the same character for live-action television?

Any new staff that you visit is a strange experience. Not in a bad way, but you’re literally a guest. If you’re there from the ground up it’s different, but this is a unique situation because I’ve written Oliver two different ways. But it’s just a vibe of knowing the show.

This Oliver, especially in Season 1, does not make jokes, does not do quips. And in Season 1 would kill people, which was something in Smallville that was a very big deal for Oliver. His entire character arc had to do with murder and the ramifications thereof, alcoholism all that stuff. So it was certainly different, coming into Oliver at two different points in his life.

But they’re inverted because the Oliver in Arrow has already dealt with all of his issues with the moral implications of murder from the island but hasn’t grown into a hero yet, where as we had the flip in Smallville where he was already a hero and then was darkened by that. It was certainly a challenge but still fun… [yells to someone down the aisle, "No, I still got nothing!"]… for the readers at home, I don’t have a chair right now. But standing is great, it’s good for the circulation. But it’ll be murder on my back by the end of the day.

But anyways, yes it was great. It was a challenge but a good kind of challenge.

How did you end up getting to do the Arrow Season 2 episode Suicide Squad? That had to have been one everyone wanted to write.
[Arrow executive-producer] Andrew [Kreisberg] had just called me and we’d talked about after Unfinished Business coming back in Season 2 to do another freelance, and he said in the batting order it was time for a freelance to happen and that they wanted it to be Suicide Squad. So I said “Yes! I will absolutely. I will relish that.” It was also a chance during the course of their year, to help push that Diggle/Deadshot relationship down the field. It was fun and had a little bit of Alias to it, which was nice.

It absolutely did, yeah!

There was waaaay more Alias in it at first. Then it was like “Oh, we have a budget!” and then everything shrunk down.

I was actually very surprised to see a drone made it in.

Yeah, the drone stayed in. The drone was the one piece that stayed in. Many little nods to Alias. They thought the device was small and they could take it, but it turned out to be very large. Lots of very on purpose nods.

Very drone crazy in Season 2 of Arrow.

Yeah! Because then at the end she brought them back! You know what? You put the gun on the table, you gotta use it! Amanda has drones to solve problems, so Amanda is going to use drones to solve problems.

Any talks of writing for Season 3 of Arrow?

We haven’t talked about it yet, I know timetable-wise they’re convening right now to start [writing]. I would assume production starts over the summer. It’s up to them, but certainly it’s a good time.

With where Deathstroke ends up in Season 2, would you consider maybe writing a Deathstroke-led Suicide Squad episode?

The things is, being a visiting team, a guest in the room, you don’t really get a say. So it would be awesome, it would be great to revisit any of the surviving members and Amanda and Lyla and ARGUS and that whole world, but it’s not a call you make when you’re freelance.

Speaking of surviving members, was the long-distance shot of a smoke pillar indicating Shrapnel’s demise in that episode meant to be ambiguous, or was it intended in your script that he was dead?

From the script, homeboy blew up. The bomb was in his head and it took the car with him.

Fair enough. The shot was a bit suspicious and made me raise an eyebrow.

I think that probably comes from [the fact that] we had to pay for a drone sequence at the end of the show. We blew up the car off-screen.

What about the Harley Quinn cameo?

Deranged Squad female.

There were promos that actually showed her face in what was apparently additional scenes. Was there stuff you wrote that was cut?

There was definitely an actress there in the shooting of it, but I think it was always meant to be, at most, no more than the eyes through the window and the pigtails from behind. There were more lines. Everyone took a swing and when Tara Strong did the voice she read them all and they just used what fit. It was “Oh, it’s not Harley, but Harley! Everybody write a line!”

I thought she was used in just the right amount. You don’t want to overplay that hand.

No, and then if you make too big a meal of her and then you don’t come back to her… that’s why she’s just an Easter Egg.

You didn’t write the pilot, but have you started your work on SyFy’s Dominion [a sequel to 2010 Paul Bettany film Legion]?

We all came aboard on episode 2.

Finished your scripts?

Oh yeah, it’s all done. I think shooting finished a week ago? A few weeks ago? It’s a pilot plus eight episodes.

What was it that drew you into the project?

It was a mix of things, as with any of these things. There’s opportunity, there’s people you like working with, there’s subject matter. This was kind of a nice little cross section of all that because Slavkin and Swimmer, who I knew from Smallville and I worked on Season 2 of Defiance with, came over to Dominion.

So I knew those guys and wanted to work with them and they wanted me back over there and Vaun [Wilmott] and I hit it off, because even if you want to work on a show, doesn’t mean you’ll get to work on the show. So the pilot, which I’d gotten to read and got to see an early version of like you saw, is really sharp. It was definitely an attractive place to go while Defiance was down.

I’m a huge Whedon nerd, so I loved seeing Anthony Stewart Head in the pilot.

He’s so good.

He’s fantastic on the show.

And there’s so much good stuff with him. It’s a great cast, but he gets to play something that’s so much not Giles [from Buffy], which I think for him as an actor is also very exciting. Just because it goes dark. We go darrrrk, dark, dark.

It does seem like there is a bleak vibe.

But there’s also a sense of hope in the rumor that there is a savior who is out there. So there’s hope for us all out there through him. If he decides to surface.

Thanks so much for the time. Very much enjoy your work! Good luck with the chair situation and good luck with the rest of your Phoenix Comicon!

Thank you! Good to meet you and you too.
