Crossgen to Lower Price, Reformat Compendia Series - 13/09/2002
In a recent press-release, CrossGen Comics have announced that they will be reformatting and lowering the price of upcoming volumes of their Compendia Series starting with Forge #9 and Edge #9. Going forward, all Compendia will be printed at 5 3/8" x 8 3/16", contain approximately 192 pages, and cost $7.95 US.
"This smaller trim size and lower price," said Ian M. Feller, Crossgen's media and press consultant, "compares favorably to a standard paperback, provides significantly more value than a standard graphic novel and is a comfortable purchase for mainstream readers."
Crossgen's Compendia series enables regular readers to get the equivalent of seven to eight single issues for the price of less than three of the single issue format. The new smaller size should also make carrying, transporting, and displaying both Forge and Edge easier, and still be more durable than a single-issue comic. (Read More)

What's The Frequency Warren? - 9/09/2002
Have you been wondering what writer Warren Ellis has been up to since his works on hits like TRANSMETROPOLITAN, THE AUTHORITY and PLANETARY? Well, wonder no longer. DC Comics has announced that in coming months Wildstorm Productions will be bringing us two new Ellis mini-series: GLOBAL FREQUENCY and MEK.

"Warren's one of the best writers to hit comics in a long time. His take on whatever genre he touches, from super heroes to horror to science fiction has really raised the industry's bars on creativity and originality."

Mike McAvennie, editor of DC's Supergirl, has revealed a bizarre new plot-twist involving the one and only Maid of Might in an interview with the DC Online Newsletter.
"As SUPERGIRL #75 opens, Linda Danvers has finished her quests, fought her demons and won. As the sole holder of the Supergirl name, she’s ready to head on home to Leesburg and resume her life. But, somewhere along the way, she comes across a crash-landed rocket from another planet...A rocket," he continues, under prodding from us, "carrying the one and only...Supergirl!"
And so begins a mystery that has Linda questioning a mysterious being with powers and abilities far beyond even hers.
