Exclusive: Zatanna and John Constantine Make Magic in Smallville Comic Book

Jan 2, 2014 09:36 AM ET

____________________________________________________________________

Smallville Comic Book

Smallville is about to get magical. The DC Comics digital series based on the long-running TV show takes a supernatural sidetrack in a new storyline featuring Zatanna and John Constantine.

The magically powered Zatanna, best known for casting spells spoken backwards, returns to the world of Clark Kent and Co. in “Harbinger,” a story beginning Friday that runs parallel to the comic’s main narrative. Introduced in Season 8 of the TV show (played by Serinda Swan), Zatanna is now in London. “She’s taken her show on the road, using her tour as a cover to run down and deal with all the messes/enchanted/cursed everythings her father left behind when he died,” says Bryan Q. Miller, who writes the comic book extension of the TV series. “By the time we catch up with her in ‘Harbinger,’ she’s closing in on the final item on that list.”

Enter Constantine, the crass, chain-smoking British occult detective, who has a long, complicated history with Zatanna. “He and Zee butt heads over how to deal with her father’s final cursed object,” Miller teases of the popular DC character’s first appearance in the Smallville universe. “It was stolen from Constantine and he wants it back… so he can sell it to the highest bidder.”

New chapters of Smallville digital comics are available Fridays at readdcentertainment.com and via the DC Comics app, the iBookstore, Nook Store and Kindle Store. Printed collections are released monthly.

Below is artist Cat Staggs’ cover for “Harbinger.” For a preview of the first chapter (with art by Daniel HDR, Rodney Buchemi and Garry Henderson), click here.

The Third Chapter of Smallville:Titans is available today! You can download your copy on the DC Comics app , Comixology, or Itunes/kindle stores.

For fun I thought I would share the costumes for a few of the characters.  Most were already established in the series.  Bryan wanted to very much keep the vibe of teenagers and not do full blown super suits, as they are still learning the ropes.

When The Vampire Diaries bi-weekly digital series launches on Halloween, fans of the show will learn untold secrets about the origins and histories of the show’s characters and concepts.

Based on the CW show of the same name, The Vampire Diaries is following in the footsteps of hit comics like Smallvilleand Buffy the Vampire Slayer. But in this case, the comic is being released while the TV show is still on the air.

So although the comic can’t tough the future of the Diariesuniverse, the comic will be tapping into the series’ still-unknown past. With characters that have lived as long as 1000 years,The Vampire Diaries still has a lot of unexplored territory, despite its frequent flashbacks to key settings from history.

Las Vegas Comic Expo cancellation

Again, I am sorry for the cancellation but it cannot be helped. I hope Charles, all the guests and fans have a wonderful weekend in Vegas and I look forward to seeing all of you next year.

Smallville Season 11 Changes Coming…

September 6th, 2013 by admin

Sep 6, 2013 11:37 AM ET
by Rich Sands

Smallville Season 11 is coming to and close, but that won’t be the end of Clark Kent & Co.’s adventures.
Starting this fall the popular digital comic book series based on the long-running TV series will segue into
a new format. Rather than continuing under the Season 11 banner — which kicked off last year — the DC
Comics franchise will now consist of individual miniseries, each one starting with a new No. 1 issue.

The change won’t affect the tone or continuity established in Season 11 by writer Bryan Q. Miller. Instead the format tweak is a bid to “get the casual or first-time reader a little more up to speed in each of those No. 1 issues,” says Miller, who wrote for the TV show and is on the writing staff of Syfy’s Defiance. “Not that we don’t already do that to an extent, but [now] the first 20-30 pages of each arc will be more about setting up the status quo for the miniseries, rather than jumping right into things. It’s a way to help welcome more people into the Smallville universe that we’ve been expanding on since the television series ended.”

WONDERFUL NEWS!!

Matt D. Wilson

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.
