Marvel Announces Crossgen Imprint and First Books
Published on Thursday, December 16, 2010 by

Back at SDCC Marvel released a teaser image of an updated Crossgen Comics logo. They have now released details for the first two books in the Crossgen Imprint.

Today Marvel released news that they will be launching a new imprint, Crossgen. March will see the release of the first two mini-series using the characters and concepts Marvel acquired when Disney bought the company. Disney had bought the rights to the characters from former Crossgen CEO Mark Alessi years ago.

Ruse features the return of Mark Waid, the original writer of the character, and will have Mirco Pierfederici on art. Ruse will feature covers by original Ruse artist, Butch Guice, along with Mike Perkins.

“Simon [may be] the world’s greatest detective, but he’s overlooking a mystery that’s right under his nose: the secret that Emma is keeping would floor him. Together, they solve impossible crimes in a series that’s a little Fantastic Four, a little Sherlock Holmes, and a lot of mystery. This may be the most fun I’ve ever had writing,” Waid said.

Sigil will be written by Mike Carey with art by Leonard Kirk. Sigil is about 16 year old Samantha Rey from South Carolina and the mysterious destiny she inherits that is tied to the symbol on her chest.

“SIGIL is epic fantasy on a colossal scale, ultimately spanning the whole of human history. It tells the story of a young girl who has inherited a unique talent and destiny from her dead mother and has also been enlisted without her knowledge or understanding in a war that spans all of space and time. The amazing Leonard Kirk is our [artist], so when I throw around all these adjectives about huge scope and epic scale, you know I’m not kidding,” said writer Mike Carey.
