Universal Pictures has released a raft of new photos from The Incredible Hulk movie.

Among the images is a first look at Tim Blake Nelson as Professor Samuel Sterns, a cellular biologist who might hold the key to Bruce Banner's quest for a cure. Sterns, in the comics, becomes The Leader.

"Sterns is brilliant, but he is also ethically challenged," Nelson said. "I think that's what's really appealing about a lot of the characters in The Incredible Hulk; they get to explore this sort of id within themselves, this dark side that comes out as a kind of monstrosity.

"I don't think Sterns considers himself a villain whatsoever. In fact, because he is so brilliant and so convinced of his own brilliance, he's beyond any sort of opprobrious morality. As long as he's discovering and breaking new ground, he feels his life is worthwhile. He doesn't get too concerned about what's good, and I love that kind of character."

* Radical Publishing has announced John Bolton is providing a cover for Hercules: The Thracian Wars #3 and Tomm Coker is providing one for Caliber: First Canon of Justice #3.

Both issues will be in stores in July.

"Getting John Bolton and Tomm Coker respectively for Hercules and Caliber couldn't have been a better choice," said Barry Levine, Radical Publishing's president and publisher. "John knows a thing about a character such as Hercules, having done Robert E. Howard's Kull the Barbarian for Marvel years ago, as well as his Marada, the She-Wolf he co-created with Chris Claremont. I really love how he brings across the glory of battle in this one scene. Tomm's cover for Caliber is just beautiful. With Arthur on the run in the Telacoma winter countryside for issue #3, this cover brings an iconic look to Lance that fits Sam Sarkar's story."
