Fans of Smallville might have to change channels next season.

On Tuesday, The WB and UPN announced they are ceasing to form one network, The CW, beginning next season in September. The new broadcasting network will be a joint venture between Warner Bros. Entertainment and CBS Corporation, with each company owning 50 percent.

Smallville, in its fifth season and one of The WB's most successful shows, will likely be part of The CW's lineup next fall.

An Aquaman pilot was scheduled to begin filming in March for The WB. No word yet if the merger will impact production.

The CW will incorporate The WB's current scheduling model, which consists of a six-night, 13 hour primetime lineup including Monday through Friday nights from 8-10 p.m. (E/P); Sundays from 7-10 p.m.; Sunday from 5-7 p.m. outside of primetime as well as a Monday thru Friday afternoon block from 3-5 p.m.

The combination of Tribune's 16 major market stations and the 12 CBS-owned UPN major market affiliates give The CW instant coverage in 48 percent of the country. The remainder of the network's distribution system will be a combination of selected current UPN and The WB stations. The full distribution of the new network is expected to exceed 95 percent of the country.

The 16 Tribune affiliated stations will include New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Dallas, Washington, D.C., Houston, Miami, Denver, St. Louis, Portland, Indianapolis, San Diego, Hartford, New Orleans and Albany. The 12 CBS Station Group television markets will include Philadelphia, San Francisco, Atlanta, Detroit, Tampa, Seattle, Sacramento, Pittsburgh, West Palm Beach, Norfolk, Oklahoma City and Providence.

That would mean in a market such as Detroit that a WB show such as Smallville will be on a different channel next fall.

The CW will also pick up from Kids' WB!, with a block of animated programming airing on Saturdays from 7 a.m.-noon.

Aspen Comics' Cannon Hawke mini-series concludes with a showdown between Cannon and Taras in #5, hitting stands on Wednesday.

The issue is by writer J.T. Krul, penciler Marcus To, inker Don Ho and colorist Beth Sotelo. Michael Turner and Peter Steigerwald provide the cover.

"Cannon Hawke was a series that centered on action and adventure, and I think it delivered on both fronts," Turner said. "Aspen was extremely satisfied with the outcome of this series and the development of Cannon as an intricate character in the Fathom universe.

"The entire team rose to the challenge and delivered a strong series from start to finish. Marcus To's art improved from issue to issue and he continues to stun us with his finished pages. I canıt wait to see what he brings to our next project, Soulfire: Chaos Reign."

Said To: "Iım proud of how Cannon turned out and feel like we accomplished all the goals we set for the series at the beginning. When the book first debuted I was hoping the fans would embrace the character like I did, and throughout the series I think more and more people jumped onto the book. Thatıs all you can ever ask for."
