BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD: THE SPECTRE

The Spectre returns to appear in the opening segment of "Gorillas in Our Midst!," Friday's new episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold.

"He's based more on the classic Spectre than the current cosmic version," said Todd Casey who wrote the episode, "much like the Spectre you see in the (Justice League:) Crisis on Two Earths DVD, where he's very vengeance-oriented.

"It's kind of like a Twilight Zone-ish twist on it, with Batman, The Spectre and Achilles Milo."

Like in the "Chill of the Night!" episode, The Spectre is voiced by Mark Hamill.

IDW Publishing, under license from Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast, has announced it will launch several anew comic book series based on the many worlds of the popular roleplaying game, Dungeons * Dragons.

The many planned projects will be distributed to a wide audience through comic book outlets, trade bookstores and mass retailers.

"We are delighted to partner with IDW, said Liz Schuh, Brand Director for Dungeons & Dragons. "Together, we will bring great D&D stories to our fans, told through IDW's high quality comics."

Tantasy painter Wayne Reynolds will supply covers for the launch of the new series. Specific creative teams and information about each new series will be forthcoming.

"We are excited to expand our relationship with Hasbro and bring Dungeons & Dragons to comics," said IDW CEO, Ted Adams. "Hasbro is a great company to work with, and we value our unique partnership with them."
