Fan Expo News: Marvel's CROSSGEN Line Adds Two Titles

 

Marvel's CrossGen imprint is adding two more titles in the near future, as revealed Sunday afternoon at Fan Expo in Toronto.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Route 666, both part of the original CrossGen line, are getting four-issue miniseries. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is slated for December from writer Peter Milligan and artist Roman Rosanas, and Route 666 is scheduled to debut in February, written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and illustrated by Peter Nguyen.

 

As in its original incarnation, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is a spy book, and was described at the "Next Big Thing" panel as "somewhere between John le Carré and Ian Fleming" by Marvel marketing's Arune Singh. Route 666 is again a horror book, but was said to have elements of "suspense and humor," and is set in the 1950s.

The first two CrossGen series revived by Marvel were Sigil and Ruse earlier this year, and a Mystic miniseries is currently ungoing. Disney purchased the CrossGen properties in 2004, and they came under Marvel control after Disney's acquisition of Marvel in 2009.
