Smallville, the hit series which follows the adventures of a teenage Clark Kent and his friends - including Lana Lang and a certain Lex Luthor - is one of the hottest shows on TV. This third volume of Titan's bestselling authorised companion series tells you everything you need to know about the stunning third season, and is packed once again with exclusive interviews, unseen photos, behind-the-scenes secrets and of course a complete episode guide. Plus, there's a deeper insight into the world of Smallville, with more excerpts from The Smallville Ledger and the high school newspaper, The Torch...

It will come as no surprise to anyone who bought Smallville: The Official Companion - Season One and Season Two to learn that the Season Three Companion is just as well researched and compiled.

As with the previous volumes, this comes packed to bursting with loads of images from Smallville, as well as heaps of interesting information on each episode (including music tracks, a list of guest stars and some great "Did You Know?" titbits).

Sadly though, the choice of images for the 16 colour pages in the centre of this collection leaves a lot to be desired. When you've only got a limited amount of pages you really should take a lot of care choosing the right pictures. One page is totally wasted with production designs of low res scans of logos (they could easily have been reprinted in black and white) and there are several rather poor screen grabs which really shouldn't have been included in colour.

But, despite this slight complaint, this is yet another Smallville companion book that all fans will be proud to own.
