Jerry O'Connell is providing the voice of Captain Marvel in an upcoming episode of Cartoon Network's Justice League Unlimited.

O'Connell, 31, has dozens of television and movie roles to his credit. His television series include Crossing Jordan, Sliders and My Secret Identity.

O'Connell recently has been dating Rebecca Romijn, star of The Punisher and X-Men movies.

In addition to O'Connell, the episode features Shane Haboucha as the voice of Billy Batson. Haboucha, 14, did the voice of the young Superman in the "Kids' Stuff" episode in Justice League Unlimited and plays Charlie Hayes in The WB's Everwood.

Bret Blevins, longtime storyboard artist, told The Continuum he worked on the Captain Marvel episode.

"Everyone's going to love that episode; it's a great script," Blevins said. "I referenced all the versions of the comics and other media, too. It's all in there."

The episode is titled "The Clash" and will include a scrap between Superman and Captain Marvel. It was written by J.M. DeMatteis and Dwayne McDuffie.

George Perez told The Continuum he is working with Phil Jimenez and Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez on what he calls "The EZ Project," a soon-to-be-announced project from DC Comics.

"I'm having the time of my life inking the incredible Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez," Perez told The Continuum at last weekend's MegaCon. "Phil is writing and drawing the covers, so I get to ink him, too."

The "EZ" is a reference to the last two letters in each of the creators' names. It has been rumored that the project involves Donna Troy.

Perez is drawing a new cover to a Marvel Visionaires featuring his run on Fantastic Four. He's also doing three pages for a 10th anniversary edition of Witchblade and some City of Heroes covers for Top Cow Productions.

Perez said he will be concentrating on his New Teen Titans graphic novel with Marv Wolfman in May.

"I've got learn to say no. I'm getting so many great offers," Perez said. "I'm proud to say that after 30 years in the business, I'm still kind of the pretty girl at the dance."

Following up on the adaptation of George R. R. Martin's The Hedge Knight, Dabel Brothers Production is nearing release on its next wave of comic-book adaptations based on the works of popular fantasy authors, including "The Wood Boy" by Raymond E. Feist.

The Wood Boy is a coming-of-age story that offers a common boy's perspective of the Riftwar Saga as he finds himself enslaved under a force of alien invaders as they occupy the manor where he works. The comic features the art of Mat Broome and will be published by Image Comics.

"The Wood Boy is a great introduction to the Riftwar because it gives readers a glimpse of both sides of the conflict," said Sean J. Jordan, who wrote the adaptation of the story. "On one side, you've got the Midkemians, who live in a fairly standard medieval world complete with elves, dwarves, and dragons. On the other side, you have the Tsurani, an invading army somewhat like a blend between the Mongol Hordes and the Roman Legions that has come through a rift between the two worlds to conquer the kingdoms and take their metal."

Here's how the book is described:

"The Wood Boy follows Dirk, a teenager who has just begun his life as a servant on a prominent estate as the Riftwar begins. When the Tsurani invade the estate and turn it into a base of operations, Dirk and his fellow workers are forced to not only attend to the needs of the estate, but also those of the army."

"The first half of the story is all about Dirk learning how to live under the rule of his harsh new masters," said Jordan, "while the second half takes an unexpected twist and gives Dirk an opportunity to grow from a simple wood boy into a courageous hero."

One of the most distinctive aspects of The Wood Boy is its artistic style - Broome infused the story with a bit of a "Dirk-the-Daring" look to make the title stand out in the genre.

"Part of the reason I decided to work on this project is because Feist's writing is really good," said Broome. "This is a really compelling story about the awkwardness of being a kid, and it's been a blast to work on it."
