The future Superman and a former Lois Lane took center stage as presenters at the Golden Globe Awards Monday night in Los Angeles.

Brandon Routh, who plays the Man of Steel in the upcoming Superman Returns, and Teri Hatcher, who played Lois in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, presented the award for best supporting actress in television.

Before presenting the award, Hatcher told Routh that she had a "little experience in the genre" and could provide him tips, and then gave him Clark Kent's trademark glasses to put on.

In other comics-related news from the event:

* A History of Violence lost in both areas where it was nominated -- best drama picture and Maria Bello for best drama actress.

* Other presenters included V for Vendetta's Natalie Portman, Fantastic Four's Jessica Alba and Julian McMahon, Sin City's Alba and Rosario Dawson, Hulk's Eric Bana and The Punisher's John Travolta.

* George Clooney, who starred in Batman & Robin, won for best supporting actor in a drama for Syriana. Rachel Weisz, who starred in Constantine, won for best supporting actress in a drama for The Constant Gardner. Ang Lee, who directed Hulk, won best director for Brokeback Mountain.

* Damon Lindelof, producer of ABC's Lost and writer of Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk, accepted the television drama series award on behalf of the show.

Devil's Due Publishing will begin a series of comics based on Fox's Family Guy in April.

Family Guy: Volume 1 will kick off a bimonthly series.

Matt Fleckenstein, staff writer of the animated series, is the book's writer, with art by Benjamin Phillips.

Here's how Devil's Due describes the book:

"The Family Guy steps out of the TV screen and into a new bimonthly series from Devil's Due! Each of the three volumes in this series focuses on one of the star characters, and their views on life... however skewed they may be! Want advice from Peter or Stewie? Probably not, but they're going to give it to you anyway! In between these hilarious one-on-one segments are stories rivaled only by the TV show itself."

Look for all of Devil's Due's April solicitations soon here in The Continuum.

In other DC news:

* Dan Jurgen, who is the artist of the upcoming mini-series Infinite Crisis Aftermath: The Battle for Bludhaven, has signed an exclusive contract with DC Comics.

"Everyone in comics admires the sense of enthusiasm and creative hustle that DC exudes these days," Jurgens said. "When (Senior VP -- Executive Editor, DCU) Dan DiDio and (Group Editor) Eddie Berganza approached me with the idea of joining DC exclusively, with Dan saying he wanted a 'gunslinger,' I couldn't help but be intrigued. Working in a high-octane environment like the one at DC gets the creative fires burning and that adds up to books reflecting that energy and excitement. We have some very exciting projects planned for the next few years and I canšt wait to get started. I spent a fair amount of time contributing to the DCU's past. It's great to be back amid friends with a chance to contribute to its future."

* DC provided a content update on Jonah Hex.

In Jonah Hex #5, scheduled to arrive in stores on March 1, artist Tony DeZuņiga returns to the character he first illustrated in 1972šs All-Star Western #10, in a tale of amorality during a Christmas gone horribly wrong! This issue is written by the regular team of Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray and features a cover by Tim Bradstreet.

Jonax Hex #6, scheduled to arrive in stores on April 5, will feature the story originally scheduled for issue #5. This issue is written by Palmiotti and Gray, with art by Luke Ross and a cover by Brian Bolland.
