365 Comics...128: Smallville Season 11 #13 (2013)

What can I say about Smallville this month that I haven't said already?  Well how about Booster Gold... more? Blue Beetle too...more?  A trip to the 32nd Century...?  Legion of Super-Heroes?  Earth under siege from the Kryptonian denizens of Argo? Come on!  Tell me that doesn't sound awesome.  And it is.
Brian Q. Miller is channelling all that is good about Geoff Johns and putting it in the BQM blender to serve up a mighty fine coctail.  Drawing from John's  Smaellville scripts where he introduced Booster, Beetle and the Legion, as well as looking to his Action Comics work from a few years back toying with Earth Man (Kurt Niedrigh) and 30th century Earth xenophobia as well as the war with New Krypton.  But the great thing is Miller takes all these many, many elements and plugs them into Smallville continuity seamlessly.  Miller knows the world of this show, he knows the characters and he knows DC characters and stories and marries them all together gleefully. 
Look at that cover! Awesomesauce!
