Smallville Season 11 #17

High above Metropolis, Batman and Nightwing discuss the events of Strykers, while pursuing Superman who broke Bruno Manheim out. Cut to Superman who is even HIGHER above Metropolis to interrogate (with fear) the info out of him that Batman wants. He eventually gives him the info, and relays it back to Batman using Bat’s tracer. Chloe finds out there’s a pattern from the emails he’s getting. Lois and Clark discuss how Toyman may still be connected to all the arms trafficking, and it’s revealed that he had an admirer by the name of Oswald Loomis. Later, Batman sees something on his external cameras that alert him to the Bat Signal in the sky… In Metropolis… To be continued.

For this book, I really like this new art work of Jamaal Igle. His drawn faces look superb as do his hands, though I question who’s choice it was to have Batman have grey face paint from his nose down.

Some how it stays on even though he done went through how many walls and what not. His art work is just well appreciated in these issues.
Miller seems to have encompassed the Christan Bale version of Batman, as well as all the other versions (notably the animated Batman/Justice League). The world of Smallville certainly has expanded since the year 2001, much less 2010 the story seems to be vast from characters, to places, to the ideas. With this issue I’m kind of revived by the series.
