Official Press Release

[Mark of Charon #1]
You gotta love creepy villains. Those bad guys that make your skin crawl and
your knees shake. Take Charon, for instance, the God-Emperor of the Negation
Empire. Yes, he commands a dark universe that threatens everyone in nearly
every CrossGen book out there…but he also simply wants the best for us.
Just listen to writer Tony Bedard and you’ll see that Charon isn’t your
typical ne’er do well:

“Rather than make him a mustache-twirling villain, we made him a calm,
paternal figure with godlike powers who only wants to do what he thinks is
best for humankind…whether we want it or not. Charon’s detached calm in
the face of ludicrous cosmic bloodshed makes for some pretty whacked-out
scenes.”

And if you’re in the mood for some “whacked-out scenes”, then just pick up
MARK OF CHARON #1 this week…because it’s full of them! See, Charon’s ready
to kick his plans into overdrive–but he needs some help to get everything
done…even if that help is dead and buried!

Yep, if you crave creepy villains, the creative team of Bedard, penciler Joe
Bennett, inker Jonathan Glapion, and colorist Dave McCaig are definitely
delivering the goods. And if you need a little something extra, word has it
that this five-issue mini-series will also expose the secret origins of the
Negation and decide the future of the entire CrossGen Universe! See? Charon
loves you!




Your Friend @ CrossGen,

Bill Rosemann
