SMALLVILLE: "CRIMSON"

The CW has released 10 images from "Crimson," the Thursday, Feb. 1 episode of Smallville.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"After Lois (Erica Durance) tries on lipstick made with red kryptonite, she becomes overwhelmed with desire for Clark (Tom Welling) and makes her move. The two share a kiss, transferring the red kryptonite to Clark and his inhibitions immediately shut down causing 'bad-Clark' to emerge. Fueled by the red rock, Clark decides to break up Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) and Lana's (Kristin Kreuk) wedding dinner and kidnap the bride-to-be."

The episode was written by Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders and directed by Glen Winter.

Amazing Spider-Man: Swing Shift is written by Dan Slott, with art and cover by Phil Jimenez.

Here's how Marvel describes the book:

"A brand-new tale of danger and intrigue starring your favorite web-slinger...a tale that may just come back to haunt Spidey in the coming months."

"It's the birthday of someone very close to Peter, but the special day is ruined by the appearance of a new villain that will haunt Pete for months to come," said editor Steve Wacker.

Marvel Adventures Three-In-One is written by Fred Van Lente and Paul Benjamin, with art by James Cordeiro and a cover by David Nakayama.

Her'šs how Marvel describes the book:

"First, Tony Stark must find out who or what is behind a mysterious series of thefts at Stark International of Brazil, but is the answer more than his alter-ego, the Invincible Iron Man, can handle? And in a second feature, brilliant scientist Bruce Banner has a secret side to his personality -- an alter ego that's capable of causing mass destruction -- The Incredible Hulk. Can he keep the gamma-powered monster at bay while on the run from the authorities? Plus: A story featuring Franklin Richards, Son of a Genius!:

Both books will be 32 pages.
