SMALLVILLE UPDATE

The WB has released eight images from "Exposed," the Thursday, Nov. 3 episode of Smallville.

The episode reunites Dukes of Hazzard stars John Schneider and Tom Wopat.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"Clark (Tom Welling) and Jonathan (John Schneider) are thrilled when Jake Jennings (guest star Tom Wopat), Jonathan's oldest friend, rolls into the Kent farm looking for their support in his campaign for re-election to the senate. However, after a young girl named Melissa (guest star Sarah Mutch) turns up dead, it is revealed that she was a stripper and Jennings' mistress, which makes him the prime suspect. Searching for answers, Chloe (Allison Mack) convinces Lois (Erica Durance) to go undercover as a stripper, but things take a dangerous turn when Lois gets kidnapped by a diplomat's son (guest star Woody Jeffreys) who intends to sell her into slavery."

The episode was written by Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders and was directed by Brad May.

TEEN TITANS UPDATE

Cartoon Network has adjusted its schedule for Saturday night premieres of Teen Titans episodes.

Here's a rundown, with descriptions of the episodes:

"Snowblind" on Saturday: While battling a mysterious creature in the wilds of Siberia, Starfire is lost in a blinding snowstorm. Red Star, a reclusive young soldier, comes to her aid and the two become fast friends. When Robin and the rest of the Teen Titans arrive, they discover Red Star hides not only a tragic past, but a destructive secret.

"Kole" on Nov. 5: While in the Arctic Circle, the Teen Titans once again take on Dr. Light. And when an accident sends the Teen Titans through the ice, they discover a exotic new underworld, and two new superheroes: Kole and her caveman sidekick, Gnarrk.

"Hide & Seek" on Nov. 12: With the other Teen Titans off fighting exciting battles with the Brotherhood of Evil, Raven is left with the worst task of all -- transporting three rambunctious future superheroes to safety. But this simple task turns into an adventure in babysitting as Raven and her young charges are chased through the Alps by the Brotherhood of Evil's Msr. Mallah.

"Lightspeed" on Nov. 19: 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.

In other Teen Titans news:

* Yuri Lowenthal, whose voice credits include roles in Naruto and Rave Master, provides the Japanese-speaking voices of several thugs in the Teen Titans direct-to-video movie.

SECOND EDITION FOR V.I.C.E. #1

Following the sell-out of V.I.C.E. #1, Top Cow Productions has responded with V.I.C.E. #1: Code Red Edition, a second printing with a remastered cover by artist Joe Benitez.

V.I.C.E is Top Cow's new series about the superpowered division of the FBI. V.I.C.E. follows the tale of young John Beckingham -- "Beck" for short -- as he is indoctrinated into the FBI's secret Violent Incident Control Enforcement unit.

The book is written by Aron Coleite of television's Crossing Jordan and features art by Tyler Kirkham.

"This is an amazing book, and Tyler's work deserves to be seen by as many eyes as possible," Coleite said. "Tell all your friends. The best is yet to come."

The first issue hit stands on Oct. 19 and was sold out at the distributor level two days after.
