Fans hoping to see new episodes of Cartoon Network's Justice League Unlimited in the new year are going to have to wait a while longer.

According to a representative of the network, plans are for the show to return in late spring/summer. No definitive dates have been scheduled.

According to Continuum sources, the show's future also remains undecided.

The last episodes of Justice League Unlimited to air were consecutive weekends of back-to-back episodes last fall. "I Am Legion" and "Shadow of the Hawk" aired on Sept. 17 and "Chaos at Earth's Core" and "To Another Shore" aired on Sept. 24.

In other JLU news, Geoff Johns worked on a second Hawkman episode.

Marvel Comics is launching a second ongoing Wolverine series, Wolverine: Origins.

The series will spin out of the House of M revelation that Wolverine has his memories back, and, more specificially from the events in Wolverine #40.

The title is edited by Axel Alonso, who told The Continuum he couldn't reveal the creative team at this time.

"In the aftermath of House of M, Logan has regained his memory," Alonso said. "He knows his past -- all of it. Armed with a clearer sense of who he is, why he is, and who done him wrong, Logan's got a whole new set of priorities. Wolverine: Origins will see Logan don his brown costume and embark on a private mission to set wrongs right, get some revenge, deal with some demons, rekindle some lost relationships, and come to terms with major revelations about the complicated tapestry of his origin...and the patterns he seems doomed to repeat.

"In short, fans should expect major revelations about Wolverine's past."


After selling out more quickly than the first issue did, X-Factor #2 is going back to press, Marvel Comics announced on Tuesday.

The new series is by former X-Factor writer Peter David, with art by Ryan Sook.

Set in what was once Mutant Town before the events of M-Day, X-Factor is now a private detective agency made up of old favorites like Madrox, Strong Guy, and Wolfsbane along with new recruits Siryn, M and Rictor.

The second printing will feature a pencil-and-inks variant cover by Sook. The 32-page book will cost $2.99 and is scheduled to be in stores on Feb. 1.

Parts Unknown Book One, created by Beau Smith and Brad Gorby and out of print for a decade, has been recollected by Afterburn Comics and will reach stores this month.

Parts Unknown Book One will be more than 100 pages and will cost $12.95. Afterburn Comics is an imprint of Blue Line Pro.

Here's how the book, which collects stories originally published by Eclipse Comics/Knight Press:

"Scalons are ruthless reptile-like beings that are well versed in the way of rape, pillage and plunder. When the atmosphere of their home planet went bad and killed off the females of their race theses intergalactic barbarians knew the males had to branch out and do so quickly before the toxic air claimed them as well.

"The planet Earth became their ideal destination and new home. But like any new home it had to be furnished to satisfy their own twisted needs. That meant spreading their evil seed with Earth women to produce a new hybrid race so they could officially claim Earth as their own.

"To do this it means that Earth women would be captured and taken against their will as prime breeders. Anyone that got in the way would die a death too brutal to imagine.

"Two members of an elite Chicago Violent Crime unit are going to try and make sure this nasty Scalon plan doesnąt happen. Those two special Police Ops members are Pendelton Spurr and Maria Lucci. Two recovering alcoholic super cops that could fall off the wagon and under the wheel at any time. They are they only two standing between Earth as we know it and a whole new world order."
