Titles include Uncanny X-Men #458, X-Men #169, Amazing Spider-Man #519, New X-Men #12, Fantastic Four #525, Livewires #3, Spider-Man: Breakout #1, New Invaders #9 and Wolverine #27


Four popular bands have written and recorded original tracks specifically for the lead characters in Activision's Fantastic Four video game.

The songs echo the distinctive personalities and special powers of each of the Fantastic Four members.

Modern rock band Taking Back Sunday leads the team with "Error Operator" for Mr. Fantastic; hip-hop veterans, Jurassic 5, rock out "Clobberin' Time" for The Thing; punk-rock up-and-comers, The Explosion, light up "I'm on Fire" for The Human Torch; and all-girl punkers, Go Betty Go, blast out the cerebral "Everywhere" for The Invisible Woman.

"Creating four unique character-driven songs and music video-like trailers is a whole new approach at integrating music into games," said Tim Riley, worldwide executive of music, Activision, Inc. "This project underscores our strategy to use artists that are aligned with the content and feel of our titles, further enhancing the overall sensory experience for players. The Fantastic Four game also will feature the signature musical theme from the film's score, which was composed by John Ottman, whose credits include X2: X-Men United and The Usual Suspects."

This is the only game based on Twentieth Century Fox's upcoming feature film. Fantastic Four game players will be able to harness the heroes' powers through a single-player or two-player co-operative team based gameplay experience. Authored by Zak Penn, who co-wrote the story for X2, the game follows the Fantastic Four filmıs storyline and expands the adventures by letting players stretch, control fire and use invisibility and brute force to defeat evil villains in new environments and familiar comic book locales.

Fantastic Four is being developed by Seven Studios for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system, XboxÔ video game system from Microsoft and the Nintendo GameCube. The PC version is being developed by Beenox Studios and Torus Games is developing Fantastic Four for the Game Boy Advance. - More Product. More Exclusives.


Following the news that the first issue of Lullaby: Wisdom Seek is sold out nationwide, Alias Comics and Image Comics announced that the upcoming second issue has sold out from the distributor during the first run of retailer orders; the book has not yet hit retail shelves.

"It's a nice surprise to see an all-ages title selling so well," said Mike S. Miller, executive director for Alias and director/co-writer for the book. "We've had high expectations for this book, and we're glad to see that there's a demand for what we're doing.

"Generally, we hold on to several hundred copies to sell at the conventions at full price over the summer. But once again, we're opting to ship out a hefty portion of our extra copies to fulfill retailer reorders so we can get this book in readers' hands. We won't be reprinting this title, so we're encouraging anyone who would like a copy to rush to their local retailer and secure one before it's too late."

Here's how Image describes the book:

"Lullaby: Wisdom Seeker: tells the story of the continuing adventures of Alice (from Wonderland), Jim Hawkins (of Treasure Island), Red Riding Hood, Pinocchio, and the Pied Piper of Hamlin as they search for the source of a dark magic that has been warping their world into its own image. Though the book is intended for all ages, it's anything but childish - especially when readers discover the twist that reveals the surprising identity of the story's villain!"

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is heading to DVD. A recent agreement between BCI Eclipse, a Navarre Corporation Company, and UK media company Entertainment Rights granted BCI the license to distribute all 130 episodes of the animated series on DVD.

BCI Eclipse is currently working on an initial two-year release strategy, and the first, two-disc set -- available July 12 during the week of the 2005 San Diego Comic-Con International convention -- will be a special, 10-episode Collectorıs Edition, and include a number of extra features.

"As studios and independent suppliers release television programming on DVD, one of the most requested shows for DVD release over the years has been the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe," said Greg Glass, senior vice president, BCI Elipse. "We have not only acquired the rights to this classic '80s, iconic animation series, but have spent many hours interviewing virtually all of the key players in the creation and production of the series. The initial Collector's Edition is just the beginning of what He-Man fans will see over the course of the next 18 months."

The Best of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe will feature five of the best episodes from season one (disc one) and five of the best episodes from season two (disc two). The "best of" episodes were chosen in part by fans through voting on the website.

In addition, each disc in the Collector's Edition will feature documentary interviews with a variety of talent involved with the original series, including Emmy-award winning writers, directors, artists, and others working behind the scenes. These first two documentaries, produced and directed by best-selling entertainment writer Andy Mangels, are the beginning of a 16-part documentary series produced by BCI Eclipse for release in future season box sets.

The two-disc set will also include two 4" x 6" He-Man art cards, which will feature renderings of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe characters. These first two cards will be part of a collector series of 16 cards released throughout the season box set series ­ each displaying the work of different comic book artists.

The Collectorıs Edition will include two exclusive art cards by Bruce Timm and Adam Hughes.
