Top Cow Productions has provided The Continuum with a promotional image from Unholy Union, its one-shot crossover with Marvel Comics.

Written by regular Witchblade scribe Ron Marz and drawn by the artist of the upcoming The Darkness ongoing series Michael Broussard, Unholy Union will be 40 pages and will cost $3.99.

Here's how Top Cow describes the book:

"When Jackie Estacado, the ill-fated mob boss cursed with the inheritance of The Darkness, is brought into court he's fairly certain he can beat the charges. Unfortunately for Jackie, Ghost Rider, the Spirit of Vengeance, is not so easily escaped. If this clash wasn't enough to get fans pulses pounding, the Incredible Hulk is simultaneously rampaging through New York City and both Dani Baptiste, the current bearer of the Witchblade, and Sara Pezzini, the former bearer, must try and save the city while Doctor Strange monitors all these events with great interest. With this much action, the stand alone special demanded an over-sized treatment with extra pages of thrilling content! And if that wasn't enough, the issue also contains a special preview for this summer's Top Cow Event First Born."

"We packed as much as humanly possible into this one," Marz said. "I think we ended up with a story that gives each of the characters a moment in the spotlight, includes plenty of over-the-top action, and even plants a seed for Top Cow's upcoming First Born storyline.

"So we've got all that, plus ample opportunity for artist Michael Broussard to show off what he's capable of. For a guy who's just beginning his career, Michael is amazingly accomplished. He's the real deal, and I'm happy to be working with him."

Exclusive Star Wars from Entertainment Earth!


NBC has released a description of "String Theory," the Monday, April 30 episode of Heroes.

Here's how the episode is described:

"Thrown five years in the future, Hiro (Masi Oka) and Ando (James Kyson Lee) discover that people with extraordinary abilities are not only widely known about -- after the destruction of New York City and the deaths of millions -- but are being registered, imprisoned, hunted and even killed as 'terrorists.'

"As the President takes his first step towards a 'final solution,' the pair get swept up in what could be the Heroes' final battle and encounter a range of new and darkly familiar faces. If they survive the experience, can they still get back to the present and save the world?"

In other Heroes news, Oka will be a guest on NBC's Today on Friday morning.
