Official Press Release
You gotta love creepy villains. Those bad guys that make your skin crawl andyour knees shake. Take Charon, for instance, the God-Emperor of the NegationEmpire. Yes, he commands a dark universe that threatens everyone in nearlyevery 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 yourtypical 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 isbest for humankind...whether we want it or not. Charon's detached calm inthe face of ludicrous cosmic bloodshed makes for some pretty whacked-outscenes."
And if you're in the mood for some "whacked-out scenes", then just pick upMARK OF CHARON #1 this week...because it's full of them! See, Charon's readyto kick his plans into overdrive--but he needs some help to get everythingdone...even if that help is dead and buried!
Yep, if you crave creepy villains, the creative team of Bedard, penciler JoeBennett, inker Jonathan Glapion, and colorist Dave McCaig are definitelydelivering the goods. And if you need a little something extra, word has itthat this five-issue mini-series will also expose the secret origins of theNegation and decide the future of the entire CrossGen Universe! See? Charonloves you!
