Save the dates: February 8 and 15th. Those are the nights when NBC will air it's two-part film version of the legendary comic book series XIII.

Val Kilmer, Stephen Dorff, Jessalyn Gilsig, and Stephen McHattie star.

Never heard of XIII? Don't feel bad. It's a French-Belgian comic book that has had very limited distribution in English. It's about the assassination of the first female U.S. president and the discovery of someone who may have been involved -- someone who is found in a forest, wounded, with amnesia, and no form of ID except for a XIII tattooed on his neck.

XIII first appeared in the Belgian magazine Spirou in 1984. To date, there have been 19 volumes.
