Blade will be getting some new wheels for his upcoming series on Spike TV.

Kirk "Sticky" Jones' Blade will ride a Harley-Davidson VRSCD Night Rod motorcycle in the series, which debuts on Wednesday, June 28.

"Blade: The Series is a thrilling action-adventure, filled with heart-pounding tension and suspense," said Dario Spina, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Promotions, Spike TV. "As a character-driven series, Harley Davidson's Night Rod motorcycle has a powerful attitude of its own, adding dimension to both the series and our lead character."

Spike TV and Harley-Davidson worked closely on the logistics of integrating the Night Rod into Blade: The Series and are considering several joint promotions for the project.

The series is produced by New Line Television and is currently in production in Vancouver, British Columbia.

"The Night Rod is a raw, hot rod-inspired motorcycle with the latest in styling and performance," said Paul James, Harley-Davidson Product Communication Manager. "It has a menacing look and feel, which makes it a great motorcycle for the Blade character. We hope Spike TV viewers enjoy the motorcycle and how it fits into the show."

In Spike TV's adaptation, Blade sets up shop in Detroit and investigates the vampire house of Chthon. Along the way he forms an uneasy alliance with Krista Starr (Jill Wagner), a military veteran who becomes entrenched into the world of vampires while investigating the murder of her twin brother.

Dark Horse on Monday announced that the murder-mystery series Rex Mundi will be moving from Image Comics to Dark Horse this fall.

In addition, a Rex Mundi feature film is in the works through Dark Horse Entertainment.

'I first read Rex Mundi when the series creator Arvid Nelson sent me the collections last year," said Dark Horse editor Scott Allie. ³I devoured the stuff. Arvid has a massive plan for this series -- he's taking his time telling an involved story in a way that you don't often see in American comics, and the payoff is going to be well worth the buildup."

"Switching publishers is a big change for me, it's huge," Nelson said. "Dark Horse has given me an incredible opportunity, and I want to take full advantage of it. Iım scared and excited all at the same time. I feel like a little schoolgirl."

Image will continue the series up through issue #18, with the first Dark Horse issue arriving in August. The last six issues of Image's run will be collected by Dark Horse and released in September, followed by reprints of the two previous Image collections.

Rex Mundi features art by Juan Ferreyra and the first Dark Horse issue will feature a cover by JH Williams III.

Marvel Comics on Monday released a preview of Annihilation: Nova #1, one of four mini-series as part of its cosmic event.

The first issue, written by Andy Lanning and Dan Abnett with art by Kev Walker, arrives in stores on April 19, and, according to Marvel, the character will become a "major player" in Marvel's cosmic universe.

Marvel offered the following description of the mini-series:

"After being beaten down and on the precipice of death after the events of Annihilation: Prologue, Nova picks himself up to take on the Annihilation Wave in Annihilation: Nova #1.

"Besides taking on a cosmic army marching from system to system, Nova has to bear the burden of being the last son of Xandar. Can Rich Rider cope with the responsibility of carrying on the memory of an entire planet?

"Despite the overwhelming odds of not surviving, Nova refuses to bow before the Annihilation Wave and attempts to send a warning out to other planets. But will he be in time and can he survive an attack by an army that destroyed an entire planet?"
