This Months Heroic Subscription Offer

Your last chance to grab a Smallville boxset

This reinterpretation of the enduring Superman mythology blends realism and adventure into an exciting action series. If you’ve never seen it before the eighth season might seem like an odd point to jump into the action but it’s actually the perfect starting point as season eight marks a distinctly new direction, moving the mythology closer of previous seasons to the wider DC universe. Years ago, a meteor shower burst from the heavens, raining destruction on the unsuspecting citizens of Smallville, Kansas. From the ashes of tragedy grew Clark Kent (Tom Welling), whose transition from boyhood to manhood is particularly difficult as he comes to grips with his emerging superpowers.

This season Clark is closer than ever to becoming the superhero of legend. He will face his ultimate challenge with the emergence of a legendary destroyer… and this won’t be the only nemesis to appear! With award-winning special effects, Smallville reworks the Superman lore from its roots. The ninth season has recently finished on TV and a DVD box set is due from Warner Home Video later this year, so this is the perfect time to catch up with Clark’s adventures. Get the entire eighth season on DVD as a welcome gift from us if you subscribe now for just £22 every six months by UK Direct Debit. The offer ends 25th August 2010 and you can subscribe at or call 0844 848 2852 and quote SFXP13.
