1st CrossGen Comic

Crossgen Tales #1 – Back in the day, Disney bought out the rights to the CrossGen publishing company. Many speculators thought this was the time to buy up all of the CrossGen titles and start the boom process. The uptick was for a hot minute before the buyers realized they were being had. Kind of like today’s market but not as many being ripped off. True story. Anyway, so when Disney took over Crossgen, the publisher actually released great storytelling and art, and many comic collectors expected the next coming of CrossGen. Movies, cartoons, merch, something, anything. To say the purchase was and still is a failure or extremely underwhelming would be an understatement. Disney released three previous CrossGen titles, Sigil, Mystic, and Ruse in 2011. Each sold very sparsely, thus leading to other announced titles never seeing the light of day. Disney’s purchase was unofficially/officially an abject failure. Now, many years later, Disney is revisiting Crossgen. So what exactly makes things a bit different this time around? Well, first off, the movie and animated market for comic books are off the charts. If a good story is put together and the right talent is also put together, money will be made. What else? The outreach for any comic character extends well beyond the comic book industry. Meaning, top tier writing, and animation creators can be found for the right money. What else? The special effects are actually better than they were 12 years ago. So, these are just some of the many factors regarding Disney’s venture back into the CrossGen market. We cannot think of any other reasons to revisit CrossGen, besides meeting their copyright obligation. The Disney brand does not do things for the sake of doing them. Neither does Marvel Comics. Why is the CrossGen universe coming back into the fold after a many-year absence? So, before your local comic shop or eBay or the expert speculation sites or apps or the bloodthirsty speculators realize that the plans could be bigger than initially thought, a collector can own the CrossGen (overprinted) comics for mega-cheap prices right now. One can begin their CrossGen quest with the first release CrossGen comic; CrossGenesis #1 from 2000. Many first appearances in there. Marvel reprints the few issues they did get to back in 2010 in this primer here. It’s either a test market comic or a copyright obligation. Not sure which, but also stay on top of this because one of these characters can easily cross over into a Marvel book and blow up. All upside here due to the cheap nature of these comics and accessibility. Not hard to find, and the origin/backstories are full of potential. If they ever do uptick exponentially in the aftermarket, do know they are way overpriced. Remember Valiant Comics? People lost so much money in that market.                    
Batman #129 – And speaking of yesteryear so much, DC Comics will be making the foil cover a thing again. A few of their titles this week will feature that 90’s foil cover. This one will be one of them.  
Deadpool #1 – Another relaunch for Deadpool. Alyssa Wong writes and Martin Coccolo art. 
Tiger Division #1 – The first-ever South Korean super team gets its own book. A first appearance team with new characters, and new villains. Written by Emily Kim and drawn by Creees Lee.  
Black Panther #11 – A new story arc with a possible first appearance. 
Midnight Suns #1 (second print) This second print brings the first appearance of Midnight Suns costumes for Cap and Iron Man.

Kroma #1

Predator #4 – We’re not going to explain the significance of a new Predator comic here. We’ve done so, week after week. Month and month. But the short story we will give is to buy anything Disney offers regarding Predator and Aliens. Their new franchise could be based on something in these comics someday. See, we explained without getting into an entire diatribe. Our regulars around here don’t want to read about our take on this again.  
Joker The Man Who Stopped Laughing #2 – The big Joker story continues. Writer Matthew Rosenberg and artist Francesco Francavilla. 
The Ones #1 – Comic writer Brian Michael Bendis has a knack for making characters shine. He gives old/tired characters/teams new life and new direction. He has a knack for making new characters break out too. The man knows his craft and this Wednesday he’ll introduce readers to “The Ones”. A new team book from yours truly and Dark Horse Comics. Jacob Edgar will provide the artwork.  
Ninja-Funk #1 – A new character is introduced from Whatnot Publishing. The best part of the introduction here is the multitude of cool variant homage covers arriving with it. We picked one of our favorites here, the Todd McFarlane Spider-Man #1 homage. Yes, we know, the Spidey cover has been done a million times, but still neat anyways.   
Cherish #1 – Bestselling romance author, Katana Collins, introduces us to Dynamite Entertainment’s newest sensation.   
Kroma #1 – New from Image Comics. Written and drawn by Lorenzo De Felici. A sci-fi/horror/monster story. 
Star Wars Mandalorian #5A story called “Gunslinger”. A possible first appearance here.

Fear Of A Red Planet #1 – New sci-fi story from Aftershock comics. Writer Mark Sable and artist Andrea Olimpieri.  
Secret Invasion #1 – A new five-issue Skrull story from writer Ryan North and penciler Francesco Mobili. 
Punchline Special #1 – Right before the covid pandemic and during covid pandemic, the “first” Punchline was introduced. Before DC Comics. This Bill Williams and Matthew Weldon character was a somewhat hot commodity for a little bit. We promoted the heck out of it because we believed in it. Some delays unfortunately occurred and it killed some momentum. We recall this happening, maybe it didn’t, but we think it happen. While the comic community was trying to find a way to grab the new DC Punchline comics (we touted her as well), we were directing the crowd to really check out the Antarctic Press’ Punchline. She’s a dope character. This Wednesday, a new team-up with Punchline. Yay!    
Guardians Of The Galaxy Cosmic Rewind #1 – Is this a one-shot? No idea. But it could introduce us to a new character. Pay attention. 
Hell To Pay #1 – Writer Charles Soule introduces a new married couple team with superpowers. Image Comics. 
Behold, Behemoth #1New monster/horror comic from Boom Studios. Writer Tate Brombal and artist Nick Robles.
