Lex and Clark, reunited for the first time since season 7! What, no long, passionate embrace between these old friends?

I think the more cartoony style actually suits a licensed comic more than a realistic style. Uncanny valley and all that.

The Russians as would be villains? Are we back in the '80s?

I hate to see a writer caught by continuity issues basically 14 pages into a story (the statue, as you pointed out*) such are the pitfalls of a weekly comic schedule.


*even if they were utterly grateful, would any country be willing to erect a statue for someone who'd only saved 4 lives? Maybe it was cumulative appreciate with the whole Apokalips thing added to it.

They kept the Wedding Presents?! Truth, Justice and No Give Backs. I hated Six in Baltar's head, so I am already skeptical. Intrigued if this Nexxus is something Luthor hatched or just plot device to have Clark attack a US Satellite that tried to kill him that no one saw.

Nah, not me. I want to see Tom Welling, Erica Durance, et al on the page, or as close as possible.

Well, the Russians only had a statue commissioned. Presumably they announced a Superman statue was commissioned. Doesn't mean it was built. There's a several hour time difference between Moscow, Russia and Metropolis, Kansas. It's still the morning in Metropolis, early enough where Lois and Clark are still getting up and ready for their work day. So it's evening in Russia and they had time to make such announcements like thanking Superman for saving their cosmonauts.

However, the Daily Planet headline with the photo announcing Superman saving the cosmonauts is unlikely. It's still the same morning, just a little while later. No way the Planet would have had the time in the couple of hours at most after Superman saved the cosmonauts to be able to run the presses and print a cover story about it. Oh, but who cares? Smallville has asked us to swallow far more ridiculous contrivances than that over ten years.

Incidentally, to further make it feel like the show since last issue was the teaser and this week was act one of the episode, I put up a YouTube of Smallville opening credits. You know you want to hear and see "Save Me".

I also added a link to a classic Lex and Clark hug. So sweet, those two.

Here's an article written by the head of libraries at Harvard U talking about the possible ramifications of the Google Book Search Settlement. http://www.nybooks.com/articles/22281 The first half of the article is a little verbose and unuseful (imo)
