Black Panther gets an Aspen Comics feel with the upcoming "Foreign Affairs" arc in #23-25. Michael Turner will be providing the covers and Koi Turnbull the interior art for the arc.

Here's how Marvel describes the arc:

"The honeymoon is over. The diplomatic tour is almost at its end and now it is time for T'Challa and Ororo to go visit the last stop of their tour: the United States. Going back to family and friends wouldn't be so hard if the superhero community wasn't in the middle of a war, but Storm and Black Panther have no other choice. They've got to make a stand.

"Writer Reginald Hudlin's latest story arc will have Storm and Black Panther in the midst of a battle they wish they could avoid. Both sides are looking to boost their numbers, but which side will this power couple ultimately join? Find out as Civil War continues in Black Panther #23."

Black Panther #23 will be in stores on Dec. 27. Click on the thumbnails above for larger images.

Artist Freddie E. Williams II, whose credits include Robin and Seven Soldiers: Mister Miracle, has signed an exclusive contract with DC Comics.

"I'm very happy that Freddie has decided to sign an exclusive with us," said senior editor Peter Tomasi. "He's a talented artist, a complete professional and incredibly enthusiastic -- a true pleasure to work with. His art on Robin has been great and I'm glad to have him on my Bat-crew."

"I have loved and dreamed of drawing comics for as long as I can remember," Williams said. "So being a total fanboy this is a lifelong dream come true! When I got the call about the exclusive, I flipped out and even asked if it was a prank. I'm thrilled to have this opportunity and very flattered; I can't wait to get crazy with it!"

NBC has released a new image from "Better Halves," the Monday, Oct. 30 episode of Heroes.

The image shows Ali Larter as Niki and Leonard Roberts as D.L. Hawkins.

Here's how the network describs the episode:

"Hiro (Masi Oka) and his buddy embark on their heroic journey to New York, when they are stopped by a Vegas high-roller who offers them a deal they can't refuse. As H.R.G (guest star Jack Coleman) sets up a meeting for his daughter Claire (Hayden Panettiere) with her biological parents, she hopes that questions about her newfound indestructibility can be answered. Meanwhile, Isaac (Santiago Cabrera) receives another confusing call from Hiro, but Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) is there this time to pick up the phone and relay a life-saving message. Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) bids farewell to Eden (guest star Nora Zehetner) as he heads back to India to bury his father. An unexpected visitor shows up at Niki's home."

Ape Entertainment has announced it is collecting The Black Coat: A Call to Arms into a trade paperback in early December.

The 104-page book will feature a cover by Francesco Francavilla and Euan Mactavish and will cost $12.95.

"We knew we wanted to put out a trade after the first series," said Ben Lichius, Black Coat co-creator and editor, "but when issue one sold out, we realized there were a lot of readers out there that felt like they missed the boat. We're hoping this will be a chance for anyone that's been wondering about the book to jump on board and see what all the fuss is about."

The Black Coat is written by Lichius and Adam, with art by Francavilla, it is the story of a masked super spy and his network of agents as they battle the British and dark forces of the occult in New York City right before the Revolutionary War.

The trade will also include behind-the-scenes material, concept art, pinups and more.
