Summer is a Great Time for Comics

My love affair with comics started during the summer. Every year, my family would go on a camping trip for several weeks.

Repost: CrossGen: Analysis of a Collapse

Okay, some might say I was commissioned. Others might say I offered. But here are my thoughts concering what went on at CrossGen and why the company ultimately failed.

Before I begin, however, I’d like to address a couple of preliminary matters. First, it seems like everyone is looking for that one single answer as to why CrossGen failed. The truth is very rarely that simple. The story behind…
