A Hellcycle used in the Ghost Rider movie is prominently displayed at Sony Pictures' booth at Comic-Con International in San Diego.

The motorcyle features lighting to simulate fire.

A represenative of Sony told The Continuum that footage from the film will not be shown at the booth. Free Ghost Rider cards, feature the film's logo, were being given out during Preview Night on Wednesday.

Director Mark Steven Johnson, who has been in post-production on the film in Los Angeles after shooting wrapped in Australia, will be the convention on Saturday during Sony's presentation, along with Eva Mendes (who plays Roxanne) and Marvel Studios' Avi Arad.

Topps will be released trading cards based on the animated series The Batman in October.

The main set will be 90 cards. Bonuses will include sketch cards, lenticular motion cards, foil stickers and magnet cards.

The cards will be from the first season of the Kids' WB! and Cartoon Network series, with images taken directly from the first 13 episodes.

"We take great pride in taking the perfect stills," Topps' Jeff Zapata, who is editing the set, told The Continuum. "Each shot is meticulously chosen to be as dynamic as possible. There are no boring shot, none whatsover."

Zapata said that all of the first season's villains -- such as Joker, Penguin, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, Clayface and Firefly -- will be spotlighted.

"Also look for some really nice images of the Batmobile," he said.

Eric Powell, creator of The Goon, told The Continuum he took an old-school approach in creating all the covers and drawing one of Marvel's four monster-based one-shots in October.

"It's like the old Jack Kirby days," Powell said. "They're throwback comics."

The books include:

* Devil Dinosaur: Written by Powell and Tom Sneigoski, with art by Powell and Mark Farmer.

*Fin Fang Four: Written by Roger Langridge and Mick Gray with art by Langridge

* Where Monsters Dwell: An anthology, written by Jeff Parker, Peter David and Keith Giffen, with art by Russ Braun, Arnold Pander and Giffen.

* Monsters on the Prowl: Written by Steve Niles, with art by Duncan Fegrado.

Powell said the Hulk takes on Devil Dinosaur in the book he's drawing. "It's simply a big, fun book," he said.

Each book will be 48 pages and will also include a classic monster story by Kirby.

Meanwhile, The Goon rolls on at Dark Horse. October, which is Goon month at Dark Hrose, sees the release The Goon 25 Cent Comic, which reprints The Goon #1 and includes a new short story and painted cover by Powell and a Goon hardcover that collects early issues.

As for The Goon ongoing?

"We're going to reveal the Zombie Prince's origin," Powell saidl. "There's a lot of stuff going on in the Zombieworld."
