Marvel Comics First Looks, animation news -- and more!


Warner Bros. has provided The Continuum a look at the first I Am Legend online comics story from DC Comics' Vertigo imprint that debuts on Thursday.

According to the studio, plans are for a new I Am Legend story to appear online every week leading up to the film's release on Dec. 14.

Here's how the stories are set up:

"A deadly virus has taken hold of the world -- rejected by a few (the immune), killing many (the dead) and leaving the rest (the infected) -- who live on to hunt the living, after dark. These are voices paying homage to Richard Matheson's classic novel. This is the experience of a dying mankind and the foretelling of a new world before we meet the legend, Robert Neville."

The first story, "Losing Voice: Ethan's Story," written by Steve Niles with art by Bill Sienkiewicz, is previewed above.

To read the complete story, CLICK HERE.

Upcoming stories include:

* "Death as a Gift," written by Dawn Thomas, art by Jason Chan.

* "Isolation," written by Mark Protosevich, art by David Levy.

* "Sacrificing the Few for the Many," written by Dawn Thomas, art by Jason Chan.

* "Fighting Chance," written by Richard Christian Matheson, art by David Levy.

The images above are the covers for the issue, featuring art by Ross and series artist Steve Epting, as well as design art by Ross.

Kids' WB! has provided The Continuum four images from "Chained Lightning," Saturday's new episode of Legion of Super Heroes.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"Lightning Lad (voiced by Andy Milder) discovers that his sister, Ayla (Kari Wahlgren), long thought to be lost in the same Lightning Beast attack that gave him and his brother, Mekt (James Arnold Taylor), their powers, is really alive.

"However, Ayla is now in the form of pure electromagnetic energy. Lightning Lad must find a way to save Alya before Imperiex can harness this energy for his own diabolical use."

The episode was written by Matt Wayne and directed by Brandon Vietti.

The images show:

* Lightning Lad sustains traumatic injuries in battle and Brainiac 5 must help him through with surgery -- utilizing the unique assistance of Shrinking Violet.

* Moments before their lives changed forever, Lightning Lad (left) fears the worst alongside his sister Ayla and brother Mekt.

* Imperiex issues an ultimatum to Lightning Lad's brother, Mekt.

* Bouncing Boy and Brainiac 5 work in tandem at the controls.

Dynamite Entertainment announced on Thursday that writer Keith Champagne and artist Tom Nguyen will be the creative team on its relaunch of Don Chin's Adolescent Radioactive Black Belt Hamsters.

ARBBH is Champagne's second work for Dynamite. He worte the Xena: Strange Visitor Annual.

"Without giving anything away, Tom and I plan to offer a fresh take and new beginning to Don Chin's classic creations," Champagne said. "No one can copy Don's style of humor and satirical storytelling but, with his blessing, we're planning to relaunch the Hamsters for a new generation of comics fans, while simultaneously creating a book that will offer readers of the classic series plenty of touchstones of the Hamsters they loved. Just not in a way they might expect. This is a book all about peeling back the layers and digging beneath the surface."

"I was actually a Hamster fan when I was a kid, so to be in a situation where Dynamite and Don Chin are entrusting Keith and me to continue this hilarious property is quite an honor," Nguyen said. "Plus Keith and I have wanted to work together for a long time; his writing style is concise, action-packed, and full of humor."
