Judo Girl will follow her mini-series with an ongoing series early next year, creator Darren G. Davis told The Continuum.

Like the mini-series, the ongoing series will be published by Alias Comics.

"People have taken to this character and I am getting a lot of e-mails asking us to have the mini series be an ongoing," Davis told The Continuum.

Judo Girl will also be appearing in Tenth Muse #3 and Legend of Isis #5.

A deal with Southern Island Toys has been signed and will include Judo Girl and her arch-enemy Judo Bot.

Omega the Unknown, the enigmatic super hero first introduced by Marvel Comics in the 1970s, will be re-introduced early next year in an updated, 10-issue series written by Jonathan Lethem, the author best known for his novels The Fortress of Solitude and Motherless Brooklyn, which won a National Book Critics Circle Award.

The series will mark Lethem's first comic book writing effort. The initial storyline will center on a teenage prodigy from Washington Heights, and his relationship with Omega, a mysterious and silent super-hero from another world.

Lethem is working with artist Farel Dalrymple and colorist Paul Hornschemeier on the series.

"I'm an enormous fan of Jonathan's writing, especially his rich and emotional portrayal of Brooklyn," said Joe Quesada, editor-in-chief at Marvel Comics. "While Omega the Unknown was a relatively obscure series from the 70s, Jonathan remembers it vividly from his youth, and I know that his new exploration of this hero will delight traditional comic fans and definitely appeal to a whole new audience of fans drawn to his imaginative and powerful storytelling."

"Omega the Unknown is a great character -- a kind of archetypal super hero who's also a blank slate," Lethem said. "The original story had an uncanny power over my imagination, and seemed potentially to have the intrigue and complexity of a great novel. I've always been drawn to comics as a medium and this chance to work with Marvel -- and to revive this character and bring his story to fulfillment -- is a kind of a dream-come-true for me."


The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be featured in Digital Webbing Presents #24 in July.

The story is written by Dan Berger, penciled by Andie Tong, inked by Darren Close and colored by Jeremy Roberts.

"The Turtles story has been in development for quite a while now and I'm very pleased with how it came out," said Digital Webbing publisher Ed Dukeshire. "I'm sure TMNT fans will really dig this story; it's classic, fun and should make you laugh."

The issue also includes:

* "The Mask of the Gargoyle: The Fire Devil," by writer Ron Fortier, penciler Dario Carrasco Jr., inkers Todd Swain, Staci Ponder and Luis Alonso and colorist Richard Hiltbrunner.

* "Fist of Justice: I Think, Therefore...," written by Mike Imboden, with art by Anthony Castrillo.

* "Imph,: by Pepijn Berghout and Stephen St. Laurent.

The issue features two covers, The Mask of the Gargoyle by Carrasco and Fist of Justice by Castrillo. - More Product. More Exclusives.
