Official Press Release

The best-kept secret in comic books is about to explode.

For over two years, the NEGATION creative team has generated passionate

critical praise with their fast-paced and unpredictable sci-fi thriller.

Now, writer Tony Bedard, penciler Paul Pelletier, inker Dave Meikis, and

colorist Laura Martin have the chance to show the entire comic book industry

what they've been missing in NEGATION WAR. This six-part epic, scheduled to

blast-off in March 2004, finally brings together the world-smashing Negation

Empire and the super-powered heroes of the CrossGen Universe in all-out


For nearly four years, the building storm has been teased and hinted at in

the pages across CrossGen's entire line. The mad-god Charon, having

conquered his chaotic universe, has cast his baleful eye across the gulf

between realities and covets the bright and thriving worlds in our cosmos.

Backed by endless armies and his twisted Lawbringers, the terrifyingly

charming emperor has at last given the order to launch the full invasion.

Can anything stop the Negation's path of destruction? And who is the

spandex-clad hero shown on the first issue's cover? Readers will uncover

answers as they join the battle in only three months.

"Charon wants to 'improve' the CrossGen Universe, whether we want it or not,

because he feels he knows what's best for everyone...and he'll kill as many

people as it takes to do it," explained Bedard. "The CGU crew is definitely

outmatched. But that's what makes things interesting. You gotta love the

underdog. In the pages of NEGATION, ex-soldier Obregon Kaine and his rag-tag

band of escapees have beaten immense odds in their fight for freedom. And

along the way, there's been a multitude of 'Holy $#+%" moments, so expect

even more of those jaw-dropping shocks in NEGATION WAR!"

NEGATION WAR Part One, created by the writer Tony Bedard, penciler Paul

Pelletier, inker Dave Meikis, and colorist Laura Martin, is scheduled to

reach stores on March 24th. The 32-page, $2.95 debut issue will be available

for order in the January issue of Diamond's Previews catalog.
