Dynamite Entertainment has announced it will be publishing a comic book based on the NBC television series Grimm.

"The opportunity to delve even deeper into the Grimm universe is an exciting prospect. One we hope fans of the show and comic books in general will equally enjoy," said executive producers David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf in a joint statement. "The medium will allow the story to go places we never could within the constraints of a television production. It's pretty cool."

Dynamite did not announce creators for the Grimm comic, but did release a promotional image.

* According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lost's Carlton Cuse and screenwriter Ryan Condal are developing Oni Press' The Sixth Gun for a television series at NBC.

* Dynamite Entertainment has signed former Marvel exclusive Fred Van Lente, who will write a "quirky zombie tale" next year.

"Like a lot of things that I do, my zombie project at Dynamite mocks a genre while very much being a part of that genre," Van Lente said. "In a lot of zombie stories we get the beginning of plague, or the zombie apocalypse, but we skip all the military, governmental and just plain human screw-ups that got us from Point A to Point B. Well, that's all this book is about -- a global disaster of this magnitude results in a lot global stupidity, and therein lies comedy. Think of this as World War Z with jokes and a B drive-in movie Grindhouse sensibility.

"At the heart of our story is a group of message-board experts -- yes, geeks -- recruited -- not without real-life precedent- - by the Defense Intelligence Agency to see if they can't apply their unparalleled knowledge of the zombie genre to figure a way to solve the crisis. As a professional comics writer, will I allow Internet know-it-alls save the world, or will they all be horrifically slaughtered? I can't wait to find out myself."

* Warner Home Video has announced a Jan. 22 release for Young Justice Invasion Destiny Calling: Season 2 Part 1 on DVD.

The two-disc collection features 10 episodes of the Cartoon Network series: "Happy New Year," "Earthlings," "Alienated," "Salvage," "Beneath," "Bloodlines," "Depths," "Satisfaction," "Darkest" and "Before the Dawn."

* Studio 407 has announced the addition of Jessi Reid as public relations and marketing manager.
