Ralph Winter, producer of the Fantastic Four movie, told The Continuum that the film is locked and ready for its New York premiere and release in theaters next week.

"(The) film is all done and I feel terrific about the final result," Winter told The Continuum. "We're very excited to put our movie in front of the fans and crowds."

Winter, along with the five primary cast members, director Tim Story and producer Avi Arad, will be in New York for the premiere.

In other Fantastic Four news:

* Cast members Michael Chiklis, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans and Ioan Gruffudd appeared on NBC's Today on Tuesday morning in New York.

The four were interviewed by Matt Lauer and explained their respective characters' powers.

Asked what the appeal of super-hero movies is, Chiklis said, "Well, it's the Greek theater come to life again. It's the epic themes, old, tried-and-true themes: good vanquishing evil. It also plays on our child's mind, having super-powers. We all dream about flying and doing these things."

The cast members acknowledged their sequel contracts could run up to 12 years and expressed excitement over doing more FF films.

* The FF cast will appear on MTV's Total Request Live on Tuesday, July 5.

Raw Entertainment and Image Comics team up in December for Bad Planet, "a terrifying epic of alien invasion" by Steve Niles and Thomas Jane, the star of The Punisher.

Bad Planet is the first of many projects to be released under the Raw Entertainment banner. Together, Jane and Niles will create not only comic books, but independent horror films unencumbered by the Hollywood development system.

"Tom's great to work with. I've never met anybody so consistently enthusiastic. We worked out an outline for Bad Planet based on us talking and then from there we took turns writing. So far, it's worked out great. Two writers adds layers that one writer can't."

Here's how the book is described:

"Bad Planet begins when a Near Earth Object (NEO) careens toward our planet and splits before crash-landing in Bloedriver, South Africa, and Washington, D.C. When a race of arachnid-like aliens emerges from the downed crafts, mankind falls a step down on the food chain. The human race stands powerless against the monsters that would prey on it like cattle and use Earth as a nest for their thousands of eggs. At our darkest hour, a lone alien warrior may be our only salvation. But, his time is short -- his intergalactic captors are en route to reclaim him, and mankind wants to kill him.

"The Bad Planet is Earth."

The invasion begins in a special web-exclusive trailer created by Jane himself, available on his web site at .

Jane is enthusiastic about his first foray into comic books: "I wanted to create a book that I would have loved to have discovered on the shelf at my local comic store ­ a book in the tradition of the fantastic pulps of the 1940s; the E.C. comics of the 1950s; Creepy, Eerie and Blazing Combat's of the 1960s and Œ70s; and the Twisted Tales and Alien Worlds from the 1980s and Œ90s by Bruce Jones. We are putting together an all-star cast of artists, including Tim Bradstreet, Lewis Larosa and one of my all-time favorites, Bernie Wrightson.

"From my perspective working on Bad Planet is the kind of project I;ve been searching for a long time. It's a concept that has it's roots in the old EC style Horror and Sci Fi comics which were a huge influence on all of us," Bradstreet said. "Tom's a passionate guy with fantastic ideas and a pure love of the comics medium. Working with Tom, Steve and Lewis is a pleasure as it is such a collaborative effort. Bad Planet is very much a dream realized on many levels for all of us involved."

Bradstreet will be inking Larosašs pencils and drawing two covers for the series while Wrightson will draw at least one cover, with other cover artists to be announced. Grant Goleash will be providing colors.

Digital Webbing Presents #25 in September will feature Jay Faerber's Firebirds.

"We're very excited that Jay would want his Firebirds to visit DWP," said Digital Webbing managing editor Ed Dukeshire. "In the beginning when we started this series, I never could have imagined this kind of support or how many professionals would come to join us. DWP is where it's at today because of so many talented and generous creators like Jay."

Firebirds is written and co-created by Faerber, with artwork by co-creator Andres Ponce and colors by Ryan Vera.

"This special Firebirds story stands independent from the Firebirds one-shot I put out through Image Comics," said Faerber. "It's a brief look into the furthering development of the mother/daughter bond between the Firebirds, as the two heroines have to learn to juggle their priorities and trust each other.

"I opted to publish this story in DWP because I believe in what Ed Dukeshire is trying to accomplish, and I respect the heck out of him! He designed and lettered the first Firebirds story, so I felt it only made sense to publish this second story on Ed's turf."

Returning in #25, after debuting in DWP #20 is The Last Paladin: Into a Strange New World is written by Ian Ascher, with art by Mahmud Asrar.

Also returning is Mask of the Gargoyle: Inside & Out, written by Ron Fortier, with art by Dario Carrasco Jr. and Todd Swain.


After Hours Press has announced a September release of Sherman's Room, a comic book about a little boy who escapes the reality of life in the fantasy world of his vivid imagination.
