Greg Horn told The Continuum that he is the new regular cover artist of Marvel Comics' Ms. Marvel.

"They asked me to do one," Horn told The Continuum, "but they liked it so much they said, 'Hey you want to be the cover artist?'"

Horn said his first cover will be for Ms. Marvel #12. He said he will continue to provide covers for She-Hulk.

Horn said he's been working on some new techniques to his covers, playing with textures and angles.

Horn also has been working on some other projects, including a version of the game Stratego that will be released in Europe and a re-visioning of the Funky Winkerbean comic strip.


Jeph Loeb will be writing an arc of Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8, the new Dark Horse Comics series picking up from where the television show ended, The Continuum has learned.

Loeb remains exclusive with Marvel Comics, but will be allowed to work on the project.

Loeb is friends with Buffy creator Joss Whedon and at one time was was working with Whedon on development of a Buffy animated series for Fox Kids.

Buffy is scheduled to launch in March and will run 23-26 issues. Whedon is writing the first four issues and will also likely write the last arc. Loeb is one of several high-profile writers who will be contributing.

Georges Jeanty is drawing the first arc, with Jo Chen providing covers.

Also look for a Buffy Omnibus from Dark Horse next year.

"Champions," a new episode of Legion of Super Heroes, is scheduled to air on Saturday at 10 a.m. (ET) on Kids' WB!.

Here's how the episode is described:

"While supporting Lighting Lad as he competes in the challenging Galactic Games, Superman and Phantom Girl uncover a sinister plot by the Fatal Five! Lightning Lad has troubles of his own when he finds his biggest competition from someone close to him."

"Champions" is the second episode of Legion written by Matt Wayne, story editor of Justice League Unlimited and screenwriter for Hellboy: Sword of Storms.

Wayne provided The Continuum a little insight into the episode:

"This episode's set at the Intergalactic Games, the 31st-Century version of the Olympics," Wayne said. "Despite his superpowers, Lightning Lad's a jock at heart. He needs to win as an athlete and to win clean, as opposed to some of the other contestants.

"Andy Milder, the actor who portrays LL's voice, is great at putting over this basic human need, Lightning Lad's hunger to prove himself. And of course there's somebody else trying to compromise the honest competition with an evil plot. Lightning Lad's brother, Mekt Ranzz."

Wayne told The Continuum his script for "Champions" is one of the best things he's done.

"Imagining all the futuristic competitions, kind of a Ben Hur in Wonderland, was a lot of fun," he said.

"The show's voice cast is possibly the best ever. I can't say enough about them. In this episode, not only do Yuri Lowenthal and Heather Hogan sound just right for Superman and Phantom Girl and land every joke, but they also make you believe in the situation, especially when it turns dire."

Asked if he's heard anything about a second season of Legion, Wayne said, "No official word on a renewal yet, but I'm told 'the finger's on the trigger.' It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas."
