 >>  KEVIN SMITH ON "THE TONIGHT SHOW" TONIGHT
       ... "SPIDER-MAN/BLACK CAT" ON SALE TOMORROW!
________________________________________________________________
Don't forget:  Kevin Smith will be appearing on THE TONIGHT
SHOW WITH JAY LENO tonight (June 25) to promote his new Black
Cat mini-series from Marvel Comics.
The series is titled SPIDER-MAN/BLACK CAT: THE EVIL THAT MEN DO
and will feature art by the spectacular husband-and-wife team
of TERRY and RACHEL DODSON.  (You know, from HARLEY QUINN and
GENERATION X.)  The first issue of this four-issue mini-series
goes on sale at Heroes and Dragons tomorrow, June 26, for
$2.99.
Smith is appearing on THE TONIGHT SHOW *solely* to promote
SPIDER-MAN/BLACK CAT, not an upcoming film or television
venture.  With luck, this may pave the way for other comics
creators on television and radio.  (I'd love to see Bendis on
CHARLIE ROSE!)
THE TONIGHT SHOW airs at 11:30pm on NBC in all U.S. time
zones.  International viewers may want to check their local
listings.  For more information, visit:
     http://TonightShow.MSN.com.

 >>  NO MORE "PREVIEWS" UPDATE
       ... DISCONTINUED BY DIAMOND
________________________________________________________________
My timing is unbelievably bad.
Remember when we migrated the entire DRAGON'S BREATH mailing
list to Microsoft's ListBot service -- and they discontinued the
service a few days later?
Well, after I started including PREVIEWS UPDATE in our regular
DRAGON'S BREATH newsletters -- and it became a very popular
feature! -- Diamond has decided to discontinue the PREVIEWS
UPDATE e-mailer.
You can still view the weekly update online at this address:
     http://www.diamondcomics.com/update/update.htm
or by going to http://www.heroesanddragons.com/SubscriptionProgram
and clicking on "PREVIEWS Update."  (You'll find the link under
"Additional Resources" at the far left of the page.)
But I can no longer e-mail it to you as part of the DRAGON'S
BREATH.  If you've been wondering what happened to those handy
little e-mails, now you know!
 >>  SPEAKING OF MAILING LISTS ...
________________________________________________________________
We're beta-testing a new mailing-list software for our friends
at DIGITAL ACCESS SOLUTIONS (http://www.DigitalAccessSolutions.com).
This e-mail should look just like all your previous issues of
DRAGON'S BREATH -- the changes are all "under the hood."
However, if you notice *anything* amiss with this e-mail, please
let me know at [email protected]!  I'll pass your comments
along to DAVID SHAW at Digital Access so he can make the final
tweaks to the software.
And thanks for helping us beta-test this nifty little device
Dave has cooked up!
 >>  "DARK KNIGHT STRIKES AGAIN" STRIKES AGAIN ON JULY 31
________________________________________________________________
That's right -- the year's latest comic book is back on
schedule!
DARK KNIGHT STRIKES AGAIN #3 will be on sale July 31 at Heroes
and Dragons.
Really.
(We hope, we hope, we hope.)

Create your own SOUTH PARK characters with this nifty little
FlashPlayer application!  The instructions are in German, but
you'll be able to figure them out easily enough.  This fun link
comes from DRAGON'S BREATH reader LOUIE LANFORD:

Also from LOUIE, this story about the LOBO PARAMILITARY
CHRISTMAS MOVIE (yep, I said "movie"):

DRAGON'S BREATH reader RON BAXLEY is the author of the
"Greenmyn Moon" cycle of books (soon to have a fourth
installment!) and a sharp-eyed web surfer.  He's the one who
told me Captain Kirk's command chair is up for auction:

ROBERT BROWN keeps us abreast of technological developments
with this update about TV-on-a-T-Shirt:

And, lastly, MICHAEL VANCE tells us about the comic-book
origins of J. Michael Straczynki's new show JEREMIAH:
     http://www.scifidimensions.com/Jun02/jeremiahcomic.htm
You *do* know this summer's ROAD TO PERDITION -- starring TOM
HANKS, PAUL NEWMAN, and JUDE LAW -- is based on a DC/Paradox
Press graphic novel by MAX ALLAN COLLINS and RICHARD PIERS
RAYNER, right?  And you know you can order it from Heroes and
Dragons, right?  (That goes for your friends who see the movie
and want to check out one of these "graphic novels" they're
hearing so much about, too.)
Have a great time watching Leno and look for another DRAGON'S
BREATH in a couple of days!
