Smallville season 11 #24

The final chapter the “Detective” story arc comes to a close in this issue.


As Batman stops Mr. Freeze,t Superman dashes towards the Leviathan ship that has just been hit with missiles. Inside the ship, Nightwing and Lois are saving their would be killers, from drowning. Hitting a road block they plan a way out but just as they cost to three, does Superman come and save them all by picking up the ship out of the water. Later Lois makes a call to Clark, as he makes his way to Gotham. When there he discovers where batman lost his parents. Meanwhile back in Metropolis, Chloe finally tells Oliver, she’s expecting. Lex tells Tess she may be the key his real question: who is Superman and he is going to find out everything she knows. The end of “Detective”.

The creative art team of Kevin West, Marc Deering, Wendy Broome and Carrie Strachan who did the pencils, inks and colours respectively. Wendy and Carrie sharing the last one. Their combined work really doesn’t shine until the final pages, if this book is used as a form of showing off new artist, then it’s fine, if it’s not, then dc really needs to look at what their putting out. It’s not in anyway the worst out, but it’s not even really meeting expectations of making classic word to picture classic moments to be seen in the near future as anything.

Mr. Miller kind of let this one run off a bit longer than it should, it’s one of the reasons I stopped reviewing it for so long. It was cool to see Batman, but this wasn’t the story it should have been. I did enjoy moments of it, and it did have a fair bit of the flare the T.V. show had, but it didn’t entirely work for me when it’s all said and done. The next arc seems more promising.
