G4 has announced that Marvel's Iron Man and Wolverine anime series will premiere on the network on Friday, July 29.

The series will have 12 half-hour weekly episodes that include interconnecting storylines and cameo appearances by Marvel characters. Iron Man will air at 11 p.m. (ET/PT), with Wolverine at 11:30 p.m.

The series are guided by Warren Ellis and produced by Madhouse for Marvel Entertainment and Sony Pictures Entertainment Japan (SPEJ). Adrian Pasdar will voice Tony Stark in Iron Man, and Milo Ventimiglia takes on the title role in Wolverine.

Here's how G4 describes the series:

Iron Man: In an effort to make amends for his past in weapons manufacturing, Tony Stark has dedicated himself to building the world up rather than tearing it down. Traveling to Japan to build a new arc reactor that will deliver unlimited free energy to the Japanese people, Stark is challenged by the Japanese government and the media when he attempts to import the necessary nuclear priming device. When the nuclear reactor is repeatedly attacked by the mysterious Zodiac consortium, Stark must gather his allies to take on Zodiac and its mastermind.

Wolverine: Based on the popular graphic novel by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, the series begins when Mariko, the love of LoganŐs life, is forced back to Japan by her crime-lord father, Shingen. Logan vows to get her back at any cost. He is plunged into a chaotic world of corruption and violence, forcing him to team up with young assassin, Yukio, to battle their way through the Japanese criminal underworld.

Marvel's other anime series, X-Men and Blade, will premiere on G4 later this year.

IDW Publishing and Charlie Foxtrot Entertainment have announced a Sept. 6 release for Code Word: Geronimo, an original graphic novel illustrating the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound by SEAL Team 6 on May 1.

Written by Captain Dale Dye (USMC, Ret.) and Dr. Julia Dye, Code Word: Geronimo offers a moment-by-moment inside story of the clandestine raid.

"Due to entirely appropriate security concerns, there is some creative license in our script," Dale Dye said. "But I think readers will be gratified with the detail and thrilled with our take on one of the most daring and successful commando raids in American military history."

Joining the Dyes are artists Gerry Kissell and Amin Amat. John M. Del Vecchio, decorated Vietnam veteran and author of the The 13th Valley, will also provide afterword material. A portion of the proceeds from Code Word: Geronimo will be donated to a charity supporting military service members.

"I have worked for many years now with Charlie Foxtrot Entertainment on a number of successful projects," said Tom Waltz, IDW editor, former Marine and Desert Storm I veteran. "But none of those compare to the excitement and pride I have for Code Word: Geronimo. The Dyes have put together a fantastic script detailing the heroically dangerous raid by SEAL Team 6 against Public Enemy Number One, Osama Bin Laden, and I firmly believe you won't get a more accurate account of this pivotal moment in history unless it is told by the SEAL team members themselves."

Following a career in the United States Marine Corps, Dale Dye is now best known as the military advisor to Hollywood for his work on more than 70 films, from Platoon to Saving Private Ryan, and Band Of Brothers to The Pacific. He is also the author of many novels, including Outrage and Laos File.

Code Word: Geronimo will be 88 pages and will cost $15.99.
