SMALLVILLE: "SLEEPER"

The CW has released eight images from "Sleeper, the Thursday, April 24 episode of Smallville.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"Clark (Tom Welling) desperately searches for Kara (Laura Vandervoort) and Brainiac (guest star James Marsters, as Brainiac is the only one who can reverse Lanašs (Kristin Kreuk) condition. Clark asks Chloe (Allison Mack) to check any large power surges in the area, so she breaks into several government computers, setting off alarms. Jimmy (Aaron Ashmore) is caught between the Department of Security -- who threatens him with jail time unless he helps them arrest Chloe -- and Lex (Michael Rosenbaum), who offers to help clear Chloe if Jimmy agrees to be in his debt."

In addition to Mack and Ashmore, the images show Anne Openshaw as Vanessa Weber.

IMAGE COMICS' COMIC BOOK TATTOO

Image Comics has announced a July 23 release for Comic Book Tattoo, a 480-page, full-color anthology adapting the themes and ideas behind Tori Amos' songs into a volume of sequential art.

"I have been surprised, excited and pleasantly shocked by these comics that are extensions of the songs that I have loved and therefore welcome these amazing stories of pictures and words because they are uncompromisingly inspiring," Amos said. "It shows you thought is a powerful formidable essence and can have a breathtaking domino effect."

Amos worked alongside editor Rantz Hoseley, co-creator behind the upcoming Displaced Persons and Vix. Together they formed a line up featuring Pia Guerra, Leah Moore, John Reppion David Mack, Hope Larson, Ryan Kelly, Jonathan Hickman, Colleen Doran, Eric Canete, Ted McKeever, Jock, Anthony Johnston, Dame Darcy, Carla Speed McNeil, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Mark Buckingham, Ivan Brandon, C. B. Cebulski and more, including an introduction by Sandman creator Neil Gaiman.

"While the connections between comics and music have been long established by generations of creators, Comic Book Tattoo is the pure distillation of how these two art forms inspire and feed off of each other across all the classifications, genres and styles of comic storytelling," Hoseley said. "Like Torišs music, these stories run the gamut of human experience, emotion and imagination brought to life by some of the most compelling and innovative creators in the field of comics."

BRIEFLY

* NBC is airing a special Star Wars-themed episode of Deal or No Deal on Monday, April 28. Guest supporters cheering on the contestants include Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Chewbacca and R2D2, and in a "surprise twist," Darth Vader fills in as the villainous Banker.

In a two-hour "winner take all" episode, two contestants, Elyse McCrillis and Brad Flinchum, will duel against each other with the chance to win close to two million dollars. They will each play their own game and whoever has the highest amount at the end of his or her game will take home both winnings, leaving the other with nothing.

As McCrillis gets ready to begin her solo game, she quickly sees that the models have been replaced with the classic Imperial storm troopers. The game becomes even more exciting when she gets a surprise guest supporter, Fisher, to help her play her game.

Once Flinchum's game begins, the models are dressed as Princess Leia in the classic slave outfit.
