Iron Man Figures, Gifts, & Collectibles


Fox released its 2010-11 scheduled at its upfront presentation on Monday, confirming a second season for Human Target.

The series, based on the DC Comics property, is moving to Friday at 8 p.m.

That is the same time period that Smallville had on The CW this season.

Smallville has already been renewed for a 10th season, and, if it remains in the same time period, would mean two DC-based shows on at the same time.

Dynamite Entertainment has announced an August launch for The Boys: Highland Laddie.

The mini-series will be written by Garth Ennis, with art by John McCrea and covers by Darick Robertson.

Here's how Dynamite describes the story:

"Mind reeling from recent events in The Boys, Wee Hughie heads home to Auchterladle -- the semi-idyllic Scottish seaside town where he grew up. All Hughie wants is some time to himself, to return to the bosom of family and friends, and get his head together after two years of unimaginable chaos. But our hero's luck has always been more cloud than silver lining, and the familiar surroundings he craves are not all they might be. You can go home again -- but with old pals warped beyond recognition and strangers in town up to no good, whether or not you should is another matter entirely."

"All Hughie wants is a break, and thinks the perfect place to get one is back home -- in Auchterladle, the little Scottish seaside town where he grew up," Ennis said. "But friends and family have their own ways of wearing a man down, and with certain mysterious strangers in town, Hughie's already fragile psyche is in for another battering."

"It's great to be working with Garth again," McCrea said. "This series is testing my artistic abilities -- hedge shears, parasitic worms, melting eyeballs and flock wallpaper are just a few of my favorite things..."

Here's how NBC describes the show:

"The Cape is a one-hour drama series starring David Lyons as Vince Faraday, an honest cop on a corrupt police force, who finds himself framed for a series of murders and presumed dead. He is forced into hiding, leaving behind his wife, Dana (Jennifer Ferrin) and son, Trip (Ryan Wynott). Fueled by a desire to reunite with his family and to battle the criminal forces that have overtaken Palm City, Faraday becomes "The Cape" his son's favorite comic book superhero -- and takes the law into his own hands.

"Rounding out the cast are James Frain as billionaire Peter Fleming -- The Cape's nemesis -- who moonlights as the twisted killer: Chess; Keith David as Max Malini, the ringleader of a circus gang of bank robbers who mentors Vince Faraday and trains him to be The Cape, Summer Glau as Orwell, an investigative blogger who wages war on crime and corruption in Palm City; and Dorian Missick as Marty Voyt, a former police detective and friend to Faraday."
