DARK HORSE ROUNDUP

Dark Horse Comics announced Monday that future covers of its Serenity comic book will come from such artists as Joe Quesada, Josh Middleton and Jo Chen.

Each issue of the three-issue minisieres will feature three covers spotlighting one character each. Issue #1 features Mal by John Cassaday, Inara by J. G. Jones and Jayne by Bryan Hitch.

The mini-series takes place between the end of the Firefly television series and the Serenity movie, which is scheduled for release on Sept. 30. The movie marks the feature-film directorial debut of Joss Whedon.

The plot of the comic book series centers on the crew members of the ship known as Serenity, who once again find themselves broke and on the wrong side of a number of very large firearms when a heist goes awry, and some old enemies catch their scent. After facing one failure after another, Malcolm Reynolds becomes the target of a conspiracy between government and mercenary forces, and a tense and divided crew must try to unite behind their compromised leader.

"Working with Joss is always fun and a privilege, and especially so when it's Serenity," said co-writer Brett Matthews. "I love the characters and the world so much, how distinct and consistent the vision is and always has been. That sometimes to just keep going is enough, that there's meaning in the struggle even if you don't know exactly what that meaning is -- that speaks to me, and you get it in Serenity in a way that's dusty and real and organic, not forced. It just fits. It all just means a hell of a lot to me."

The art is by Will Conrad, with colors by Laura Martin. The first issue arrives in stores on July 6.

In other Dark Horse news:

* Dark Horse and the creative minds behind Cosmic Debris are presenting the first-ever Emily comic books, published as deluxe single issues with all-new stories and art. Each issue of Emily comics will feature 48 pages of black, white, and red art -- with the occasional outburst of full-color freakouts.

Here's how Dark Horse describes the book:

"For more than 10 years, pop culture cultists have revered and adored a mysterious, brooding 13-year-old girl named Emily the Strange. Nobody knows much about the young girl with a porcelain face and huge eyes framed by black bangs. Her ever-present brood of black cats only adds to the intrigue. None of that has stopped a generation of rabid fans from letting Emily put her spell upon them. Now, for the first time ever, Emily fans will be welcomed into her dark and, well, strange worldča place where kitty friends talk, the ghosts of famous weirdoĻs come out to play, reality is never quite what it seems, andč above allča place where anyone who's ever been considered a little 'strange' themselves will be made to feel right at home."

"The comic is yet a deeper look into the strange world of Emily and her imagination -- her inventions, way of life, the people around her, and of course her Posse of four cats," said Rob Reger. "The story of Emily is unfolding."

Emily the Strange #1: The Boring Issue arrives in stores on Aug. 3, with a retail price of $7.95.

* Japan, featuring story by Buronson and art by Kentaro Miura, arrives in stores on Aug. 10.

Here's how Dark Horse describes the book:

"Yuka Katsuragi, a beautiful TV news reporter, has attracted the affections of a Yakuza thug, Katsuji Yashima, who travels with his brother all the way to Spain to find her, only to have his affections rebuffed by Yuka. A terrible earthquake hits, and Katsuji, his brother, and Yuka, along with four high-schoolers in Spain on a field trip, all fall deep underground. While trapped below the surface, they encounter a mysterious old woman who reveals to them prophecies that the wealthy nation of Japan will meet the same demise as the once-prosperous city of Carthage. Katsuji and the others insult the old woman, who then sends them to see the world of the future with their own eyes, a future of desolation and death..."

RANN-THANAGAR WAR #1 SELLS OUT

DC Comics has announced that Rann-Thanagar War #1 sold out on April 25, more than two weeks before the issue's in-store date of May 11.

DC is sending this issue back to press for a new printing with a recolored version of the original cover by Ivan Reis and Marc Campos.

Rann-Thanagar War #1 Second Printing reprints the story by Dave Gibbons with art by Reis and Campos. This new printing is scheduled to arrive in stores on May 18.

"It's a blast for me to be working on such long-time favorite characters with such wonderful artists," Gibbons said. "I'm really happy there's such a buzz out there, too!"

"Like the three other miniseries spinning off from Countdown to Infintie Crisis, it's no surprise that Rann-Thanagar War sold out," said Bob Wayne, DC's VP-Sales. "We recommend that retailers order this new printing as soon as possible and increase their orders on upcoming issues."



CHRISTOPHER YOST TALKS SPIDER-MAN

Christopher Yost, fresh off the X-23 mini-series, has written the first story in Spider-Man Unlimited #9, in stores on Wednesday.

"After the thoroughly dark and blood soaked X-23, it's nice to do something with less stabbing," Yost told The Continuum. "It's good clean fun -- on top of the general slapstick, it's a light-hearted look at how Spider-Man thinks of himself compared to super-soldiers, mutants, gods and aliens.

"It's got MJ, Electro, a poodle, general stickiness and even a few members of the Fantastic Four. Drew Johnson did an amazing job."

The issue's second story is by Petar Bridges and Cully Hamner, and the cover is by Salvador Larroca.

SMALL GODS SPECIAL

The first Small Gods Special Edition will be released in June, spotlighting the Image Comics series in color for the first time.

When asked about the bookĻs normal grayscale imagery versus the Special Edition's color work, series writer Jason Rand said, "Initially it was a decision from Image to go with B&W, but I don't think anyone could have anticipated what Juan (Ferreyra) would do when he decided to try greyscaling the book."

The issue marks the coloring debut of regular series artist Ferreyra.

"It was the first book Juan'd ever greyscaled," Rand said, "just as the Special Edition is the first issue he's ever done in color, but he blew us all away with the first issue and now - well, I may be biased, but I honestly think he's one of the best greyscalers in the business. When it comes to colors, I think he's out to show he's no slouch there, either. The man really can do everything."

The Special Edition, a 32-page comic for $2.95, will also serve as a jumping-on point as a stand-alone tale.
