Image Comics has announced a pair of projects debuting in February: Tyrannosaurus Rex and The Mission.

Tyrannosaurus Rex is a one-shot written by Mark Kidwell and Jay Fotos, with art by Jeff Zornow and Fotos.

Here's how Image describes the book:

"In Tyrannosaurus Rex, man and dinosaur share the food chain. The delicate balance between the two is destroyed one fateful day, leaving one man to face the eternally deadly Tyrant Lizard. This man will risk it all to defend his village, save his tribe, and protect his lady-love, fur bikini and all!"

"This project hit home on satisfying any giddy child-like fantasies," Fotos said. "I told myself that if I could make a dinosaur comic, the main influences would be a lifetime of Ray Harryhausen flicks, the image of Raquel Welch in a fur bikini, and a heaping helping of Warner Brothers Looney Tunes."

The Mission is from Marc Guggenheim's Collider Entertainment. It is written by Joe Hoeber and Erich Hoeber, with art by Werther Dell'Edera.

Here's how Image describes the book:

"In The Mission, a typical working guy finds his life upended when he's approached by a mysterious figure who claims to be the archangel Gabriel. Gabriel tells him he's been chosen for a mission in the battle between good and evil. The mission? Murder! Did our hero actually get a command from an angel or is he losing his mind?"

"Jon and Erich have written the perfect supernatural thriller," Guggenheim said. "People have questioned the existence of God and angels for millennia, but the main character of The Mission has to face the reality of this conundrum, and the twists and turns will have the readers guessing as well. Werther's art is a flawless companion to the story, putting into pictures the discord our hero confronts."

* This Friday's episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, "Heroes on Both Sides," will feature new character models for some of the characters, including including Obi-Wan, Anakin and Ahsoka.

"Over the course of the series so far, our characters have been affected by the conflict, so the changes we are seeing are a reflection of what they've gone through and how they've changed," said supervising director Dave Filoni. "We're getting closer to the events of Episode III, and the look of the series is moving toward that look and those designs. We don't have a live-action point of comparison for Ahsoka, but her development is definitely as pronounced as anyone's."
