Superman Returns: Superman 13" Deluxe Collectors Action Figure (JUNE PRE-ORDER)
SUNDAY, MARCH 26, 2006


Ethan Van Sciver told The Continuum that his run as artist of Superman/Batman will last six issues.

"I'm having a blast," Van Sciver said. "These are the biggest, coolest properties that DC Comics has to offer."

Van Sciver draws the cover to Superman/Batman #27 (the issus is drawn by Kevin Maguire) and then begins his run with writer Mark Verheiden with Superman/Batman #28.

Van Sciver is especially excited about his second issue.

"It's a showdown between Superman and Batman and Hal Jordan and Kilowog," he said.

Van Sciver continues his Green Lantern affiliation as the regular cover artist as of Green Lantern #14. He is also providing a variant cover to Claw the Unconquered #1.

The artist said he knows what his next project following Superman/Batman will be, but he cannot talk about it right now.



After topping the box office in its opening week, V for Vendetta placed second over the weekend.

The film, based on the comics work of Alan Moore and David Lloyd, pulled in an estimated $12.3 million to trail only Inside Man's $28.9 million and edge third-place Stay Alive's $11.2 million.

The film has a drop-off of 51.3 percent from its first weekend.

V for Vendetta has brought in a domestic total of $46.2 million in two weeks. It should finish aroound $60 million.


The WB has released a description for "Fragile," the Thursday, April 13 episode of Smallville directed by series star Tom Welling.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"Clark (Welling) and Martha (Annette OšToole) take in a little girl, Maddie (guest-star Emily Herst), after her foster mother is brutally stabbed to death. However, after it is discovered that Maddie has the power to shatter glass, she becomes the prime suspect. Meanwhile, Chloe (Allison Mack) walks in on Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) and Lana (Kristin Kreuk) during an intimate moment."

"Fragile" was written by Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer.
