CrossGen has tumbled wet and gooey and alive in 2010 from a dark rift opened by the super hadron collider. Or Marvel. Or maybe both.
What matters is that Crossgen is back, and with it are two new titles. Well, you may recognize the gaslight thriller Ruse.
"RUSE plants you in the heart of mystery as the world's greatest detective, Simon Archard, meets the alluring and enigmatic Emma Bishop, a woman who may well be his match and launches him into the greatest caper of his career. The one and only Mark Waid writes while star on the rise Mirco Pierfederici provides art."
Or, maybe you're looking for some teenage angst and symbology. Well, Sigil (not to be confused with the original CrossGen space marine launch title of the same name) looks to be just for you.
"SIGIL stars Samantha Rey, a 16-year-old girl from South Carolina who gets swept up in a war beyond her understanding and may possess the power to turn the tide in the form of a mysterious symbol on her chest even she doesn't understand. New York Times-best-selling writer Mike Carey teams with artist Leonard Kirk for this next great comics tale."
Great writers, new genre-bending stories. It's a very good thing.
Ruse and Sigil launch in March 2011.
