It's been a fairly depressing morning, what with all that incurable gonorrhea and feline mind control. Here's some more toe-tapping news. This spring, Smallville will take a cue from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and resurrect itself as a comic by former story editor and Batgirl scribe Bryan Q. Miller.


Yes, like a parasite leaping from host to host, this unkillable soap opera has survived by jumping mediums. From DC Comics' Source blog:

The new digital first series will be published digitally on April 13, 2012, with new digital chapters released weekly thereafter. Additionally, the online chapters will be offered in a print periodical, along with an episode guide to the hit television series, with the first print issue released on May 16.

The new comic book series picks-up where the show left off (with Clark officially now as Superman!) and features other fan-favorite characters including Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, Chloe Sullivan-Queen, Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, and General Lane [...] "Six months after Clark Kent donned the cape and took to the skies to save Earth from Apokolipsā€¦ enter Season 11!" enthuses Miller.


Oh well. At least this guy will be happy.
