Books. Spectrum is the internationally distributed, annual collection of the

covers, comics, art galleries, and more. The chosen pieces are the cover of

A panel of judges consisting of Rick Berry, Tim Bruckner, Terese Nielsen,
Phil Hale, David DeVries, and Bob Haas reviewed the submitted CrossGen
pieces. A letter was then sent to CrossGen Art Director Bart Sears with the
“We’re honored to be included in this prestigious book,” said Sears. “We’re
very proud of all the work the teams are doing here at CrossGen and it’s
nice to see that such a prominent outside source has confirmed it for us.
Having our art placed alongside the quality talent that Spectrum annually
features is a great pat on the back for a job well done.”
