Crossgen Comics is a new comic book
company that debuted in June 2000 with "Crossgen Chronicles #1". This quarterly book and four monthly titles, Mystic, Sigil, Scion, and Meridian, make up the Crossgen universe. The comics are being written by Ron Marz (of Green Lantern
fame) and Barbara Kesel.
The universe is very structured, consisting of four planets
(so far). Each planet has the distinction of having someone on it receive a mysterous tattoo
appear somewhere on them. This sigil seems to gift that person with incredible powers.
Crossgen Comics should also be noted for their marketing
techniques. They offer refund
s if you aren't satisfied with the comics. If you read the Crossgen Chronicles and the first three issues of one of the monthly titles and don't like the story or art, then they will give you your money
back. They also sent issues to many of the comic book stores to leave on the counter for prospective customers
to flip through to decide if the comic is worth buying. Very cool
