Spawn The Animation, the movie currently in production at Film Roman, introduces a new villain to the Spawn mythos, Lukas.

"Therešs a whole new world," said Terry Fitzgerald of Todd McFarlane Productions. "Therešs new bad guys, who are more real."

Lukas is the main villain in the film and operates out of the Russian Orthodox Church.

"He's an up-and-coming mobster who comes into power by playing off cultural superstitions," Fitzgerald said. "He sews people's eyes shut. He's a bad ass."

Chuck Patton, a director on the film, said a lot about Spawn will be learned from Lukas.

"There's a lot they share that even Spawn doesn't know about," Patton said. "He's the next Caesar. There's something really special about him."

Lukas sports elaborate tattoos, which aren't easy to animate.

"We pushed to make them as realistic as possible," Patton said. "There's a great shot when he takes off his jacket to reveal them."

Patton said that the film, due in the second quarter of 2006, has the feel of HBO's The Wire. "It's very urban. It's very dark. It's very twisted," he said.

The first Dixon will be his creator-owned project, Akota, Wargod of the Lost, a black-and-white, five-issue mini-series, illustrated by Sergio Cariello. It is a barbarian adventure story about the first people to cross the Bering Strait into North America 30,000 years ago.

Alias Comics and Hurricane Entertainment are teaming on John Carpenter's Snake Plissken Chronicles, originally published by CrossGen Comics.

Scheduled for release in November, Snake Plissken Chronicles will collect the original four-issue mini-series.

"The sales on the title were strong from start to finish," said Mike S. Miller, executive director and co-founder of Alias Comics, "It was a no-brainer to agree to publishing the trade."

Drew Struzan, whose artwork has adorned movies posters ranging from the Star Wars series to Indiana Jones and other high=profile films, is providing the cover.

"The cover alone is worth the price of the trade, but luckily, people will get a killer story with some fantastic artwork by fan favorite penciler Tone Rodriguez to boot!" Miller said. "We're getting a lot of really great properties coming through our doors lately, but I have to admit that this is a big one for me, personally."
