ROSENBAUM, LIU ON JACKIE CHAN ADVENTURES
Michael Rosenbaum of Smallville and Lucy Liu of Kill Bill and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle will provide guest voices for "J2," the episode of Jackie Chan Adventures scheduled to air on Kids' WB! on Saturday, Jan. 31 at 8 a.m. (ET).
In the episode, Jackie's feisty niece Jade gets the surprise of her life when she comes face-to-face with the adult version of herself -- voiced by Liu. The adult Jade arrives from the future, bringing knowledge of the only way to save the world from the Age of the Dragons. Shocked when meeting her future self, Jade quickly learns to use her grown-up image in her ongoing quest for knowledge. Jade is in awe of her future self and is thrilled to see Liu's character as the "new" head of Section 13 -- rivaling Jackie with her amazing acrobatics, brilliant martial arts skills and quick wit.
Rosenbaum, who also does the voice of Flash in Justice League, voice-stars as Drago, the son of Shendu, who travels back in time to retrieve the magical dragon's teeth needed to resurrect his father and ensure the future Age of the Dragons -- which Jade has returned to destroy.
Liu is also providing a voice for Game Over, UPN's new computer-generated animated series.

FIRST LOOK: KISS KISS, BANG BANG #1
Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang #1 will arrive in stores on Wednesday from CrossGen Enetertainment. The issue is written by Tony Bedard, penciled by Mike Perkins, inked by Andrew Hennessy and colored by Laura Villari.
Here's how CrossGen describes the issue:
"Meet the spy you'll love to hate! From Moscow to Beijing, everyone knows the world's top espionage agent is Sir Charles Basildon of Her Majesty's Secret Service... but no one knows what he really looks like. In truth, Basildon is merely an identity passed on from one agent to the next, building up a reputation so feared and respected that the mere mention of Sir Charles is enough to make rogue nations change their wicked ways. But now times are changing, and not only is the next top spy in training a Yank...but she's also a woman! Can Stephanie Shelley live up to the role of the legendary super spy? And can she bear to learn the ropes from the current Sir Charles‹-the most unstoppable, deadly, and infuriatingly sexist Basildon ever?"
