Smallville news -- and much more!!!


After several weeks of reruns, Legion of Super Heroes returns to Kids' WB! this Saturday with a new episode, "Brain Drain."

Here's how the episode is described:

"A major malfunction sends Brainiac 5's genius IQ plummeting. To obtain the rare element needed to save him, Superman and Timber Wolf must travel to the most inhospitable planet in the galaxy -- and thanks to a transporter accident, they have only Brainy's head to guide them."

"Originally, it started out as a lighter episode starring Brainiac," producer James Tucker told The Continuum, "but somehow from the conception to the execution, it got pretty dark.

"It's an episode that deals with Superman's friendship with Brainiac -- and also the contradictions of that friendship because of their unknown history. Superman doesn't know what Brainiac means to him because he's too young to know. He hasn't met the original Brainiac yet. Brainiac 5 knows the history, but he doesn't want him to find out. So there's a schism there. It's an interesting show in that one character doesn't know anything and the other character knows too much."

Adam Beechen, current writer of Robin, will be taking over from Geoff Johns as writer of Teen Titans following the conclusion of the the Titans East" storyline that started in Teen Titans #43.

Johns announced on Wednesday that he and artist Tony Daniel will be leaving the book. Beechen's first issue will be Teen Titans #47, but before then he will be co-writing the "Titans East" arc with Johnson.

"There are going to be some shake-ups and, more importantly, you will see the beginnings of a second Titans team forming...though not necessarily what you're expecting," Johns said. "Adam's especially nailed the characters of Kid Devil and Miss Martian and he's delved head first into the vast Titans history to soak it all up.

"I've been a fan of Adam's work for a long time, starting with Hench and his stories on the JLU book, and I'm anxious to see what he does with the Teen Titans. I've already heard a few ideas on where he wants to take the team and I'm really looking forward to them."

About leaving Teen Titans, Johns said he "felt it was the right to go" and that the decision was made easier kowning that Daniel is moving on to another project.


Firebreather, the comic book by Phil Hester and Andy Kuhn, will be returning to Image Comics before the year is over, Hester told The Continuum.

Appearing with Kuhn at the Phoenix Cactus Comicon over the weekend, Hester said the next mini-series will probably be six issues.

"It's sort of Duncan coming into adulthood, both as a human being and potentially king of the monsters," Hester said.

No release date is set yet.

"We want to get a few issues in the can before we solicit it," Kuhn said.

Firebreather at one point was set up at Paramount through Big Blast Entertainment, but Hester said the media deal for the character recently expired. He added that he has been getting feelers for the property, though.

Both creators have been plenty busy. Hester continues to draw The Irredeemable Ant-Man for Marvel and said he has a big writing gig that will be announced soon. Kuhn is doing illustrations for children's books and an issue of Hulk/Power Pack.

Family Guy T-Shirts


"The Tan Aquatic with Steve Zissou," a new episode of Family Guy, has been scheduled to air on Sunday, Feb. 18 on Fox.

Here's how Fox describes the episode:

"When a bully harasses Chris, Peter goes to his defense, but the kid is so annoying that Peter ends up beating him up.

"Meanwhile, Stewie goes out without sunscreen and becomes obsessed with getting a tan. After Brian accidentally leaves him in the tanning booth for six hours, Stewie gets sunburned and fears he has cancer. While waiting for the results of his cancer screening, Stewie begins to live his life as if he had only days to live and drives Brian crazy with his demands."
