TEEN TITANS ANIMATED UPDATE

Michael Rosenbaum is providing the voice of Kid Flash in an upcoming episode of Cartoon Network's Teen Titans animated series.

Warner Bros. Animation has provided The Continuum with a first look at the character, who will appear in the "Lightspeed" episode. (Click on the image for a larger image.)

Here's how the episode is described:

"With Titans dispatched across the globe, members of the Hive Five figure they have it made. Unfortunately their city-wide crime spree is cut short when a new hero in town spoils the fun. Handing him over to the Brotherhood of Evil may score the Hive Five points, but actually catching this lightning-fast do-gooder is much harder than it seems."

The episode has yet to be scheduled by Cartoon Network, but could air as early as November.

Rosenbaum, who plays Lex Luthor in The WB's Smallville, also has provided the voice of The Flash in Justice League and Justice League Unlimited.

GEOFF JOHNS EXCLUSIVE WITH DC COMICS

Geoff Johns, writer of Infinite Crisis, Green Lantern, Teen Titans, JSA and more, has extended his exclusive agreement with DC Comics by three years.

"I started at DC with Stars & S.T.R.I.P.E. and I've never stopped having fun," Johns said. "I'm working with the best people in the business -- my fellow writers, artists and editors. And with Infinite Crisis just about here (finally!) and Grant Morrison, Mark Waid, Greg Rucka and Keith Giffen on this insane jam series known as 52, I'm really excited for what tomorrow brings.

"Thanks to everyone, the readers and the retailers, for their support. My family and I appreciate it more than words could ever say."

"So much of DC's current success can be attributed to Geoff's selfless dedication to telling great stories and making great comics," said Dan DiDio, VP -- Executive Editor, DCU.

KOMIKWERKS' EBOOKS

Komikwerks on Monday announced a line of ebooks adaptations of independent comic books and graphic novels, partnering with such publishers and studios as Hyperwerks, Arcana Studios, Viper Comics, and Moonstone Books.

Komikwerks is working with a variety of ebooks distributors and digital distribution channels to publish a series of comics in a purely digital format.

Among the participants in Komikwerks' ebook line are: Hyperwerks, creator of Deity; Arcana Studios, publishers of 100 Girls and Kade; Viper Comics, publishers of Dead@17 and The Middleman; Moonstone Books, publishers of The Phantom and Kolchak: The Night Stalker; Dawn Brown, Xeric Award winning creator of Little Red Hot; Dan Mishkin and Tom Mandrake, creators of Creeps; Art Thibert, Flash cover artist and creator of Chrono Mechanics; Steve Uy, Marvel artist and creator of Feather; and ibooks, publisher of Joe Kubert's Yossel and Blacksad.

"This is a great opportunity for us to work with some fantastic comics creators," said Komikwerks Co-Founder Shannon Denton. "And it will be a great opportunity to get these creators' work out to a new audience through digital distribution, which has always been a primary component of Komikwerks!"

Komikwerks' first foray in ebook distribution will be in the library and educational market.

"From what we hear, libraries and schools are clamoring for more graphic novels in digital form. We're happy to fill that need with some great comics that I've been a fan of for a long time," said Komikwerks Co-Founder Patrick Coyle. "And while we're moving into the libraries and educational markets, we're also developing distribution deals in the PDA, cel phone and PSP arenas."

Robert Napton of Hyperwerks, expressed enthusiasm for the Komikwerks ebooks line: "As creators we have these great catalogs of comics and presenting them digitally for new avenues of distribution is the kind of thinking we need to turn the comic industry around." Look for the line to launch this month with ebooks versions of Hyperwerks' Deity, Dawn Brown's Little Red Hot, Steve Uy's Feather, and Creeps by Dan Mishkin and Tom Mandrake. The ebooks will be available first through the direct market to libraries and educational institutions, and then publicly through online ebook stores.
