DC COMICS FOR OCTOBER
DC Comics will be releasing its solicitations for October on Monday at 5 p.m. (ET).
For a complete rundown, with more than 100 images, check back here then.
CATWOMAN MOVIE UPDATE
Halle Berry, star of the upcoming Catwoman movie, said Catwoman "epitomizes fantasy" as a character.
"She's who every woman wants to be and every man would like to be with. In many ways cats embody the true psyche of women -- cats are very elusive, and you have to work to gain their trust and their respect. It's not something that's given very freely. I've heard it said that dogs have masters, but cats have servants. And it's true!"
Berry, co-stars Sharon Stone and Benjamin Bratt, producer Denise DiNovi and director Pitof are in Los Angeles this weekend for the Catwoman press junket.
A press screening for the film took place on Thursday and Friday nights in Hollywood. The version screened was not the final cut, with several special effects missing as well as the end credits.

Dreamwave Productions has announced the launch of a 3-part comic based on the Sony PlayStation 2 game, Killzone in November.
Here's how Dreamwave describes the concept:
"Killzone is an amazing first-person shooter that takes place on the planet Vecta. It's been overrun with the vicious Helghast - and it's up to the Interplanetary Strategic Alliance to stop them! The Helghast are gun-toting, red-eyed humanoids that have one thing in mind: annihilation! And although the game is sci-fi, one of the coolest aspects is its allusion to 20th century warfare. Everything from the weapons (based on WW2 Allies and Axis guns) to the battles themselves (based on some of the most famous fights of the past hundred years), has been researched and created to make one of the coolest fighting games ever! The game uses a unique multi-layer texturing system that makes it so the player can see incredible details of items in the foreground - guns, guts, and the glowing eyes of the merciless Helghast! It's all out war in a game of skill and survival!
"The Killzone game is packed with amazing features, incredible characters and hyper-detailed art - so it only makes sense that Dreamwave does the comic! Follow the Interplanetary Strategic Alliance try and defeat the vicious Helghast as four scattered survivors unite to forge the key to humanity's continued existence. In order to so, they must make it through the dark tunnels in the bloody trenches and burning towers of a world that could become a Killzone."
The comic will be written by John Ney Rieber, with art by Travel Foreman.
