Official Press Release
Just a year and a half after the initial launch of CrossGen’s Comics on the
Web online subscription content service, CrossGen has launched the second
enhanced version that has generated thousands of members, dozens of Web
partner sites and companion sites in Spanish and in Korean.
CrossGen has also signed an agreement with America Online, the world’s
leader in interactive services, which establishes an AOL Keyword for
CrossGen. America Online Keyword: CrossGen will drive more traffic to
CrossGen’s site while at the same time provide hundreds of pages of comics
content for free use by AOL’s members.
Comics on the Web Version 3.0 features an easier-to-use front end, while
also providing translated front ends in other languages, such as Spanish,
French, German, Italian and Japanese. The service features comics translated
in all those languages, as well. A key shift from one-bit to two-bit
language support enabled CrossGen to incorporate character-sets from Asian
languages into its online service. Other features include:
- Alternate audio track support including voice-overs and
- Asian language support e.g., Japanese/Korean
- Automatic balloon movement synced with audio track
- New Code 6 titles, including Brian Pulido’s Lady Death and R.A. Salvatore’s DemonWars

CrossGen has also established a partnership with ecomix, the most popular
online comics portal in South Korea
Finally, CrossGen also has established a Germany-based portal, as well.
“With sites ringing the world, a partnership with AOL and a whole new site
fueled by nearly 350 issues, we’re honored to help bring comics to new
audiences,” said Courtland Whited, CrossGen’s Director of Information
Technology. “The key to making it all work is quality comics, and no matter
the medium, that will always be at the center of CrossGen.”
