Kids' WB! has provided The Continuum a rundown of Saturday morning episodes for August.

For a rundown of episodes for The Batman, Legion of Super Heroes and Krypto the Superdog, CLICK HERE.

The Saturday, August 25 episode of The Batman is a repeat of "The Everywhere Man," which guest-starred Superman Returns' Brandon Routh and Smallville's Allison Mack.

Alan Burnett, executive producer of The Batman, told The Continuum that Routh's casting was a result of voice director Andrea Romano's connections.

"I remember Andrea told me he was available, and I just leaped!" Burnett said. "He's just the sweetest guy.

"This was right before Superman was about to break. It was fascinating. You had this feeling in the studio you were looking at him the last time the way he would be. You knew that after Superman, his whole life was never going to be the same."


Bluewater Productions has announced a November launch for its second Ray Harryhausen Presents series, Jason and the Argonauts: Kingdom of Hades.

The four-issue series will be written by by David McIntee, with art by Rantz and Tiago daDilva. Mike Grell is providing covers.

Here's how Bluewater describes the first issue:

"From the writer of Dr. Who comes a new Ray Harryhausen Presents adventure. The quest to find the Golden Fleece is over, but now Jason and his band of Argonauts must embark on a new and more difficult journey -- the journey home. Pursued by a vengeful Aeetes, the Argonauts will brave many dangers, and encounter old friends and new, and old enemies and new. But when the gods play games, noone can avoid reaching the lands of the dead forever."

Grell will be painting covers for the series.

"I met (Bluewater managing editor) Darren Davis at Seattle's Emerald City Con last spring and he told me about the Ray Harryhausen projects Bluewater is doing," Grell said. "Being a huge fan of just about anything Ray ever did, but particularly Jason and the Argonauts, which was one of my favorite movies as a kid, I got very excited and shamelessly pitched him to do covers. It's been a labor of love and a total blast."

Davis also met Rantz at the Emerald City Con.

"I was both honored and shocked to be asked to draw this series," Rantz said. "This series has been a thrill to do thus far, and the team is really great to work with. I've tried to keep true to David's vision as best as possible."

Avatar Press has announced an October launch for Garth Ennis' newest creator-owned series, Streets of Glory.

With art by Mike Wolfer, Streets of Glory will be a six-issue monthly mini-series.

Here's how Avatar describes the book:

"In the past fifteen years, Joseph Dunn hasn't seen much of the little civilization Montana had to offer in 1899, but his absence along with the death of a generation has rendered the atmosphere unrecognizable. Dunn is the last of the drifters that independently roamed the western frontier of the United States in the 19th century. These were men who fought with nobility, wits, and an easily un-holstered gun at their side. The body count will rise when Dunn's trigger finger is forced to settle new problems with the only solution he knows."

"At first glance, Joe Dunn does appear to be an icon, or a gunslinger, or a lone vigilante," Wolfer said. "But as we move through the lingering gun smoke and step across blood, puddled on dry earth, Garth is going to show us the true worth of this man, set against the backdrop of the wildest and most dangerous era of American history. Joe Dunn is a hero for the ages, and by God, I'm sure glad that he and Garth are our guides."

"I've loved westerns since I was old enough to breathe," Ennis said. "Streets of Glory is my take on the genre; romantic and epic, tragic and melancholy, bad and bloody. Considering the last two in particular, where else could I tell a story like this but Avatar?"


Moonstone Books on Thursday announced that artist Mark Sparacio is teaming with writer Fabian Nicieza on its new Captain Action comic book.

"To say the least, I am very excited to be part of the new Captain Action comic book team," Sparacio said. "As a huge fan of the Ideal Toys action figure and, of course, the first Captain Action comic book that legendary comic creators Jim Shooter, Wally Wood and Gil Kane worked on, I was thrilled when I received the news that I was chosen to be the interior penciller and cover painter for the new Moonstone comic book series.

"I understand that the Captain Action team looked at a lot of talented artists, before choosing me, so I am both honored and flattered for this opportunity. When I was told that Fabian Nicieza would be writing the book, I was blown away. After reading Fabian's script for part one and the terrific back story that he has created for Captain Action, I was totally hooked. I love his approach to Captain Action and I think what he wants to do and where he wants to take Captain Action is going to be incredible!"

"We are proud to bring Captain Action back to comics," said Moonstone editor-in-chief, Joe Gentile. "We think comic fans are going to be really surprised by the very slick direction Fabian has taken with the character. This should appeal to both fans of the classic action figure, as well as fans of cool spy/hero adventure."

Moonstone initally will be producing a short Captain Action story that will appear in two parts as a back-up feature in the upcoming Buckaroo Banzai mini-series.
