Sci Fi Channel on Saturday at Comic-Con International announced the return of Lucy Lawless to Battlestar Galactica and the casting of movie Flash Gordon Sam J. Jones as a guest-star on the new Flash Gordon series.

Lawless will return to Battlestar Galactica for a minimum of two episodes of the show's fourth and final season, currently in production in Vancouver. Lawless will reprise her role as D'Anna, the religious zealot who broke away from the collective voice of her fellow Cylons, thus sowing the first seeds of dissention among the robot race. As a result of her divisive behavior, her entire model was deemed defective and was "boxed."

Jones played the title character in Mike Hodges' 1980 film, Flash Gordon.

In the new television series, he will play Krebb, a seedy prisoner who reveals surprising information about the fate of Flash's long-lost father. Jones' episode, "Revelations," is targeted for October.

Boom! Studios on Friday announced that Mark Waid will become the publisher's editor-in-chief effective August 1.

Waid will fill a position in the company previously held informally by publisher and co-owner, Ross Richie.

"Boom! Studios is the next-generation comic-book company. They are doing innovative work of astounding quality," Waid said. "Co-owners Ross Richie and Andy Cosby have an incredible vision for the future of the industry and the company, and they approached me to partner with them to realize that vision. 'Here's a comic-book company,' says Ross. 'Go run it, and run it your way.' It's an unbelievable offer."

"Mark is as close to the Leonardo DaVinci of comics as you can get," Richie said There's nothing he hasn't done. The man can write. The man can edit. He designs characters, he can do production and layout, I've gotten files on his books back with the colors Photoshop-corrected by the man himself. He knows comics inside and out. And he is just an honest-to-goodness genuine human being who loves this medium and got taught all the right lessons by the heroes he grew up reading. His standing in the comics community speaks for itself.

"Mark is at the top of his game and we look forward to him taking Boom! into the stratosphere."

Waid had been involved with the company since its inception two years ago.

"Back when Boom! started as four guys in a barn, they corralled me into writing for their first comic, Zombie Tales, and the experience was terrific," Waid said. "They earned my trust, so I brought them my new creation, Potter's Field, with artist Paul Azaceta. That led to the E-I-C offer. Working with Ross and Andy and all their little office Boomlets has been a pleasure."

According to Boom!, Waid has no plans to abandon his outside commitments, but Boom! will serve as the home for his upcoming creator-owned projects.


The Iron Man movie was the center of a lot of talk at the Adapting Comics to Screen panel at Comic-Con International, with writer Mark Fergus and Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige as panelists.

Devil's Due Publishing has announced that procuer Marty Adelstein and 20th Century Fox Television have struck a deal to develop the Devil's Due comic-book series by VLE Comics' Stephen L. Antczak, about a werewolf turned anti-hero, as a television series.

Nightwolf focuses on Davey Doyle, a man determined to find a way to redeem himself when his parent die by his own hand thanks to a curse that causes him to transform into a monstrous killer during every full moon. By stalking the streets of Quad City, Doyle tracks the most sinister individuals he can find for the perfect hunt when he is forced to unleash the demon within. In his eyes, if this creature must stalk human prey, at least he may hunt those who deserve it.

Adelstein is best known for his involvement with the Fox series Prison Break.

"Prison Break is a show you can really sink your teeth into, and doesn't pander to the lowest common denominator," Antczak said. "Like the world of Nightwolf, it doesn't conform to what comic book fans expect from the typical superhero tale."

Adelstein Productions is considering both broadcast and cable network potential for the series, and is currently searching for a writer for the pilot.

"This marks Devil's Due's first foray into television, following a string of film options." said DDP president Josh Blaylock. "The fact that we landed a project with someone of Marty's caliber is... well, I have to pinch myself to be sure it's all real."
