Blue Water Productions has announced an all-new series, Victoria's Secret Service, debuting at this summer's Comic-Con International in San Diego and kicking off with publisher Alias Enterprises in the fall.

Blue Water has already optioned film and toy rights for the series.

Created by Darren G. Davis and Brooklyn Weaver, Victoria's Secret Service centers on a young American girl who finds out she's been selected to join an elite, clandestine organization, which was formed by Queen Victoria during her reign over the English Empire and exists today as an international organization.

"It is going to be a fun ride," Davis said. "This comic book is going to fit in well with the others in our universe."

Producer Jeannie Bendel has optioned Victoria's Secret Service and signed a first-look producing deal with Energy Entertainment's Weaver.

"I am extremely thrilled to work on Victoria's Secret Service and develop it into a screenplay. It has a great premise for an adventurous and exciting movie," Bendel said.

Bendel had been tracking Davis' upcoming titles after querying him last year about his Legend of Isis property, which last September was optioned to Paramount & Grammnet with Ali Russell scripting.

"Jeannie has a great eye for up and coming writers and properties, and the VSS property will be a great start to her producing career, I look forward to helping package this with a writer and set up with a buyer," Weaver said

Shocker Toys -- which last month announced an upcoming line of BWP figures -- will produce a line of Shockini toys based on Victoria's Secret Service.

Artist Eric Basaldua has signed a three-year exclusive contract to work for Top Cow Productions. His first project under the new exclusive will be April's Darkness/Vampirella crossover.

Basaldua, known to many simply as "Ebas," started working at Top Cow in 2000 under the direct tutelage of Top Cow founder and artist Marc Silvestri. His credits include The Magdalena, Tomb Raider, Witchblade/Wolverine and Blood Legacy: The Young Ones

"Getting the chance to work side by side with Silvestri and other artists in 'the pit' here at the studio is just a great opportunity for me," Basaldua said. "I love working with Marc and I continue to learn from him every day. It's an incredible opportunity, and it's nice to know I have a home."

"Eric Basaldua is one of the brightest talents on the artistic horizon today," said Top Cow Editor-In-Chief Jim McLauchlin. "We are tremendously excited to be publishing his work for the next three years, and well beyond."


* Above is a first look at covers to Witchblade #87, The Pact #3, Invincible #24, Hunter-Killer #4 and Shadowhawk #2 from Image Comics. Click on the thumbnails for larger images.

* Beginning with Image Comics' PvP #16, hitting stands on April 13, creator Scott Kurtz has converted the his book from a "landscape" format to the more traditional standard "vertical" comic book format. This decision was made largely in response to reader and retailer requests.

A 16-page PVP #0 will go on sale May 25 with a 50-cent cover price.

"I stand by my belief that all comic readers really want from a comic book is the feeling that they did't just waste three bucks of their paycheck," Kurtz said. "I hope that for 50 cents, people who have been unable to fit PvP into their weekly budget can give it a shot and realize they have to find an extra three bucks a month somewhere."

* The Flash #219 and Wonder Woman #214, featuring the 2-part ³Truth or Dare² story, have sold out at DC Comics. DC has no plan to go back to press on these sold-out issues at this time.
