PITTSBURGH COMICON: DC'S ONE YEAR LATER PANEL

The cover to Hawkgirl #54 teased it, but series artist Howard Chaykin confirmed it on Saturday at the Pittsburgh Comicon.

"We're going to be bringing Hawkman back," Chaykin said. "He will be back soon, soon-ish...we're going to start the reintroduction soon."

Chaykin and Firestorm artist Jamal Igle were the only guests for the DC: One Year Later panel.

ATLANTIS STUDIOS TO ADAPT THE LIBRARIAN

To coincide with the December broadcast premiere of the sequel to Turner Network Television TNT's Librarian: Quest of the Spear, Electric Entertainment has signed an exclusive worldwide agreement with Atlantis Studios to produce a graphic novel adaptation of the sequel and produce an original comic book series based on the characters from the two films.

The sequel, entitled The Librarian: Return to King Solomonšs Mines, continues the adventures of Flynn Carson, a man charged with protecting a repository of humanity's greatest secrets, all hidden beneath the monolithic Metropolitan Library from the forces of evil who, if given the chance, would use the priceless treasures for their nefarious plans.

The Librarian comic-book series will be produced by Atlanta-based Atlantis Studios, a company specializing in the production of comics and graphic novels based on science fiction, fantasy, and action-adventure licensed properties. The comic series will follow Flynn's adventures across the globe, and introduce new characters and artifacts suggested by the first two films.

"Comics are great opportunities to explore mythology, history, and each character in a way we could never do on film," said The Librarian executive producer Dean Devlin. "There are thousands of artifacts in the Library -- each one a new adventure. Based on the response we've had from the first film, fans of all ages loved the characters and want to see more. This series will give it to them."

The adaptation of The Librarian: Return to Solomon's Mines is targeted for late November.

SMALLVILLE UPDATE

The WB has released a description to "Vessel," the season finale of Smallville set to air on Thursday, May 11.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"Brainiac (guest star James Marsters) unleashes a deadly virus, which will kill millions of people, and refuses to give Clark (Tom Welling) the vaccine unless he agrees to release General Zod. Clark turns to Lionel (John Glover), who once again channels Jor-El. Meanwhile, Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) is stunned by his newfound powers and shares the discovery with Lana (Kristin Kreuk), who decides to stand by her new man, unaware of the shocking turn Lex's life is about to take due to Brainiac's evil machinations."

The episode was written by Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders and was directed by James Marshall.
