SPIDER-MAN ANIMATED UPDATE
The Continuum has received three new images from MTV's upcoming Spider-Man animated series.
The images show Spider-Man swinging (note the reflections on the webbing); a group shot of Peter Parker, Mary Jane Watson and Harry Osborn; and Talon, a new villain created for the series.
Peter Parker's voice is done by Neil Patrick Harris, with Lisa Loeb playing Mary Jane and Ian Ziering playing Harry.

ICONS OF EVIL: BEAST MAN
MVCreations has released a six-page preview of Icons of Evil: Beast Man, a 48-page one-shot that will arrive in stores in June from Image Comics.
The book is written by Robert Kirkman and penciled by Tony Moore.
Here's how MVCreations describes the book:
"What terror is lurking through the Berserk Islands of Eternia? It is whispered from village to village that a savage Beast Man has been lurking about! And a young sorcerer named Keldor is determined to find out if the legends are true…but who is seeking whom? Will Keldor find this savage Beast Man or will the Beast Man find him!"
The issue is the first of a series of One-Shots featuring the back stories of Masters of the Universe villains.
Icons of Evil: Beast Man One Shot will cost $4.95.

ART OF TOMMY LEE EDWARDS
IDW Publishing in August is releasing Art of Tommy Lee Edwards, a full-color collection of Edwards' art from comics and other projects, spanning a wide variety of genres and media.
The book includes an introduction by Howard Chaykin.
"Star Wars fans know my RPG covers and children's books, Harry Potter fans know the work I've done for the first film, comics fans know that stuff, etc.," Edwards said. "This art book will bridge the gap as a fun collection for everyone. I get a ton of requests for prints--especially of the Star Wars work. Now people can have 96 pages of really nice reproductions for only 20 bucks. Not only are many well-known images printed, readers will also be able to see my sketches and preliminary thoughts that went into creating the compositions."
Said IDW editor-in-chief Jeff Mariotte, "I've worked with Tommy Lee Edwards on a variety of projects in the past, and even I was surprised at his astonishing range. Most people have only the most glancing familiarity with his whole body of work, and we at IDW have every intention of changing that. This is truly an artist whose work should be seen by everyone."
Art of Tommy Lee Edwards will be a 96-page trade paperback and will cost $19.99.
