THE BATMAN UPDATE

Steve Melching, a veteran writer of Kids' WB!'s The Batman, has one more episode in the fourth season following the recent airing of "Clayfaces."

Melching wrote "Seconds," which has not been scheduled yet and will probably air early next year.

"I'm very proud of that script," Melching told The Continuum. "I think it's one of my best and I'm really curious to see how it turns out!"

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"After a seemingly ordinary criminal continues to get the better of Batman and his partners it is discovered that he has the ability to travel back in time by several seconds. Batman is now faced with the seemingly impossible task of stopping a foe that knows his every move before even Batman himself does."

SILENT DEVIL'S LITTLE FOOT PUBLISHING

Silent Devil announced Little Foot Publishing, its new line of creator-owned graphic novels, at SPX in Bethesda, Md., over the weekend.

The line's debut title, Mr. Big, is a 152-page digest-sized graphic novel by cartoonists Carol and Matt Dembicki.

Here's how Silent Devil describes the book:

When a couple of adolescent fish go missing, the pond denizens blame Mr. Big -- a giant snapping turtle that rules the pond -- for their disappearance. The disgruntled animals decide it's time to overthrow him, hoping to end the fear that permeates the pond. Despite warnings from a sage crayfish that disrupting the balance of the pond may lead to something even more fearsome replacing Mr. Big, the animals engage the help of some crows to kill the giant. But the crafty murder has its own motive for eliminating the snapper.

"No one said Mother Nature was fair," Matt Dembicki said.

"Little Foot is a way for Silent Devil to showcase an amazing range of graphic novels done by some of the best cartoonists working today," said publisher Christian Beranek. "Mr. Big is our first book and we're very excited about it. We plan on producing 2-4 novels a year under this line."
