Wow, this is exciting news! I had heard about Sojourn but I didn't know about the rest. I'm glad we get to see those stories collected now.

Amd hopefully the creators will actually get paid for their work too..... As much as I think this is good news, I'd wait to see if that's the case first.

Loved CrossGen. Easily the best comics that were being put out at the time. I really wish they could have finished Negation: War. Okay, I really wish they were still around, but would have settled for the War to be finished.

They'll probably receive royalties, but I wouldn't expect more than that.

Sweet! I'll probably get the Sojourn one, but probably not the others cuz I think I have most of the individual issues for the others. I miss Crossgen. Negation, Route 666, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Sojourn, Meridian were all amazing titles.

CrossGen had some cool titles. (I've browsed their site when they were around.)

I guess nobody caught on with Brath like I did huh?

Great to see the titles being put out again in TPB form, maybe it'll spark some more interest in the titles and get them jump started a new.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang was the only CrossGen book I bought regularly (the only other CrossGen books I own are the $1 Sojourn issue and the FCBD Way of the Rat). It'll be interesting to see, if they ever get to a KKBB trade, if they include the never published KKBB #6.

That'd be awesome if they ever did that. I'd buy it in a second even though I have all of the other issues.

And Greg: I liked Brath too. But I only have a few of the issues, but the ones I have were quite strong.

Did Sojourn end in mid story arc? I have talked to Chuck Dixon about how El Cazador would have wrapped up.

I know that there were a lot of unpaid employees and broken promises from Crossgen. I still miss the books and I thought they had one of the best displays areas at shows. They also had a lot of free sketches and give-aways.

I doubt very highly that any creators will see a dime. I've certainly heard nothing about it. And, to be fair, it's really not Checker's responsibility. CrossGen left people holding the bag, not Disney, not Checker.

I assume Checker paid a licensing fee to Disney to get this stuff into print, and for access to the files. It would be a nice gesture on Checker's part to track down the creators and throw a couple of bucks our way, but I don't expect it. I'm just hoping to get a few comp copies.
