BLADE: TRINITY AT COMIC-CON
The Blade franchise, which started Marvel's run of successful movies, will reach the trilogy stage on Dec. 10 with Blade: Trinity.
David Goyer, who wrote the first two films and is writing and directing the third, welcomed stars Ryan Reynolds (Hannibal King) and Jessica Biel (Abigail Whistler) to a panel at Comic-Con International last weekend. He showed clips featuring both of them from the film and then the three fielded questions for the audience.

DARK HORSE'S THE INCREDIBLES
Dark Horse Comics announced that its four-issue series The Incredibles series will be adapted from the original film story, which was written by director Brad Bird and will feature illustrations by Incredibles storyboard artist Ricardo Curtis.
The film, the latest from Pixar Animation, will be in theaters on Nov. 5.
Here's how Dark Horse describes The Incredibles:
"During the golden age of Supers, heroes protected the populace from harm. The erašs main champion was the ultra strong Mr. Incredible. But things went awry for Mr. Incredible and the rest of the Supers when they were hit with a series of frivolous lawsuits brought against them by those they once saved. To diffuse the situation, the government created a relocation program for the Supers, who, in exchange for protection from further lawsuits, went into hiding and promised never to use their powers again.
"Fifteen years later, Mr. Incredible is simply Bob Parr, living the quiet suburban life with his wife Helen, and their three children. However, family life and the daily nine-to-five routine aren't enough for Bob, who frequently sneaks out to do 'hero work's in the evenings. Bob's inability to move on from past glories soon puts a strain on his home life. But one day things take an unexpected turn when Bob is contacted by a mysterious woman who recruits him for some top secret hero work."
The Incredibles issue #1 arrive in stores on Nov. 24 and will cost $2.99.
The bust will depict Frankenstein rising from the grave, surrounded by his three spirit soulmates, Stitches, Twitch and Hammer. Sculptor Shawn Nagle will be helming this project, based on conceptual art by Wheatley.
