SMALLVILLE UPDATE

Multi-platium recording group Lifehouse will perform on The WB's Smallville on Wednesday, April 20, in the episode "Spirit."

The single "You and Me" from the band's self-titled third album provides the moody backdrop behind the senior prom at Smallville High.

In the episode, football star Clark Kent (Tom Welling), now in his senior year, finds himself dateless for the ultimate high school rite of passage -- prom night. Beautiful and popular Lana Lang (Kristin Kreuk) prefers pizza and a movie marathon in favor of the over-hyped dance. Furthermore, the Class of 2005, in a surprising move, has nominated the anti-establishment-favoring columnist, Chloe Sullivan (Allison Mack) for Prom Queen. And, to complicate matters, the quick-witted, dazzling Lois Lane (Erica Durance) happens to be in-town.

Through a series of events that could only happen in the town of Smallville, all eventually make their way to the prom. With Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum) sponsoring a performance by the band Lifehouse as a senior gift, it is a night destined to be remembered.

Here's the network's official description of the episode:

"A stunned Chloe is nominated for Prom Queen and tries to talk a reluctant Clark and Lana into attending the dance with her. However, after her rival Dawn, a wannabe Prom queen, crashes her car into a ravine filled with kryptonite, Dawn's spirit is released and she enters the bodies of the others making them act out of character. As a result, Lana asks Clark to be her date, Lois attends the Prom and Chloe sets the school on fire. Lex gives the seniors a special gift by having the band Lifehouse play at the dance."

THE BATMAN UPDATE

Kids' WB! and Warner Bros. Animation have provided The Continuum with a first look at character designs for Batgirl and Poison Ivy, who will be making their debuts on the second season of The Batman animated series.

Here's how the characters are described:

"Batgirl -- known as Barbara Gordon -- the teenage daughter of Gotham's Commissioner Gordon, is a strong-willed, stubborn teen with an ironic wit. Inspired by her first contact with The Batman, she dons the cape and cowl to become Batgirl. Her new friend, Pamela Isley, is charming, clever and a quick-tempered schemer, known to go to extreme measures to get her environmental messages heard. After a tragic accident transforms her into the evil half-human/half-plant that she names Poison Ivy, she is able to control anyone who gets a whiff of her plant pheromone 'spores.'"

JEPH LOEB TO WRITE THE SPIRIT MOVIE

Jeph Loeb will adapt Will Eisner's The Spirit for Odd Lot Entertainment and Batfilm Productions' live-action feature film based on the character.

Odd Lot's Gigi Pritzker and Deborah Del Prete will produce along with Batfilm's Michael Uslan. Benjamin Melniker and Steve Maier will serve as executive producers, with F.J. DeSanto and Linda McDonough co-producing.

"Will Eisner created a tremendous character and story, and Jeph Loeb is the perfect writer to enhance and honor his legacy," Del Prete said. "Michael and I met with Will just before he passed away in January, and we all agreed that our film will encompass the same integrity, artistry and handsomely crafted look that The Spriti is so well-known for.

Will Eisner's The Spirit was created in 1940 and is the story of a masked detective -- believed to be dead and operating out of his grave site in Wildwood Cemetery -- who fights crime in Central City with his fists, cunning (a tongue-in-cheek sense of the absurd) and unbelievable threshold for pain.

Loeb is currently exclusive to DC Comics. His recent credits include Superman/Batman and Catwoman: When in Rome, along with the upcoming Supergirl. He is a contributing producer and writer on The WB's Smallville.

IMAGE COMICS SELL-OUTS

Image Comics has announced sell-outs for The Walking Dead and The Expatriate.

The Walking Dead #15 and #16, by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard have sold out, as well as the second printing of the first Walking Dead trade paperback, Days Gone Bye. A third printing is being readied for release, and Image is readying a second printing for the second trade paperback, Miles Behind Us.

"This book just keeps on going up in sales," Kirkman said. "Every month I think, wow, we can't go any higher than this, and yet, the issues still keep selling out, and we keep printing more. This book is like magic or something. Charlie Adlard, Cliff Rathburn (who handles tones) and I couldn't be happier."

The third Walking Dead collection, Safety Behind Bars, hits stores this month.

The Expatriate #1, by B. Clay Moore and Jason Latour, sold out the morning after it arrived in stores. Moore said what begins as an intriguing story about a man on the run will soon evolve into something far stranger.

"The next few issues will feature everything from astronauts to the Beatles," Moore said. "With lots of running, a bit of being caught, some horrific body modification, murder, mayhem, death and resurrection.

"As the book progresses, I think people will be glad they stuck around. We're elated to see that the book is finding an audience so quickly."

According to Image, it's unlikely the first issue will be reprinted in a single edition
