SMALLVILLE UPDATE

Season 5 of Smallville will end with another cliffhanger, executive producer Al Gough told The Continuum.

The show, coming off its 100th episode on Thursday, has ended each season with a cliffhanger.

Smallville hasn't officially been renewed yet, but figures to be back for a sixth season on the new merged network, The CW.

"If we have a cliffhanger and don't get picked up, it will be terribly frustrating," Gough said, laughing. "But we're going in with that assumption (of Season 6). That's our plan."

Asked about more DC Comics characters appearing on Smallville after Cyborg's appearance in February, Gough replied, "There may be someone in the season finale."

In other Smallville notes:

* James Marsters' Brainiac will return beginning in the season's 16th episode. "His nefarious plan to release Zod from the Phantom Zone has not seen its last day," Gough said.

* Dean Cain, who starred in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, still looms as a possible guest-star, Gough said.

"There have been a lot of rumors about him," Gough said. "We continue to talk to Dean. Again, we don't want to bring anybody on to the show until we can find the right role. We don't want to have them on just to have them on. Will it happen this season? I don't know, perhaps. It's something we're always talking about."

* Look for some synergy with the upcoming Superman Returns movie this spring, perhaps in the form of a preview like the Batman Begins preview with Season 4's finale. "I know the network is talking with the film side," Gough said. "If we can make it happen, that'd be great."

Gough visited the Superman Returns set in Australia. "It looks great," he said.

SAM KIETH'S MY INNER BIMBO

Oni Press has announced an April launch for My Inner Bimbo, a five-issue mini-series by Sam Kieth and Josh Hagler.

Here's how Oni describes the book:

"What happens when a man's underdeveloped feminine side materializes into a very real gum-chewing bimbo? That's the question at the core of a story that could only come from the mind of Sam Kieth!

"Lo has had a full life. After falling in love with an older woman, he's had the chance to spend many years with her; and now that he looks back at it all, he can't help but wonder how things might have gone differently. Enter the bimbo- a gum-chewing, ultra-feminine young woman, who very well could lead him to trouble, the truth, or both, as she forces him to take a good hard look at his life, and himself."

"My readers have met Lo before," Kieth said, "even if they didn't realize it. He's the grandfather in OJO, and this story takes place later in his life. Taken on the surface, there's a huge shift in this book; Ojo was a cool little story about a girl and a monster, and this one is about her grandfather -- a horny old guy chasing a bimbo. But really, they're intimately connected."

"Sam has a vision for a series of books," said Oni editor-in-chief James Lucas Jones. "When he explained the concept to us, we were immediately attracted to it. Ojo was the beginning, and while it focuses on Annie, the little girl, it introduces you to Lo, and to the magic trout, which are the two reoccurring aspects throughout the books. Each mini-series will explore a different aspect of Lo's life and experience; in some he's more tangential, in others, like My Inner Bimbo, he takes center stage. They'll each stand on their own, but by the end, readers who pick up all of the miniseries will have a complete picture of this man and his life."

My Inner Bimbo, which explores the ramifications of a relationship between two people who differ largely in age, is especially personal for Kieth.

"This is the most personal story that I've told so far. My wife and I met when I was quite young, and the age difference in the book is one that we share. So a lot of the issues Lo faces are ones that I've had to wrap my head around."

Kieth is joined in his drawing duties by Hagler, creator of the serial novel The Boy Who Made Silence.

"Our process is very collaborative," Hagler said. "There are some areas where it's a matter of me inking his pencils, but there are lots of areas where the drawings are mine from start to finish."
