Comic News:
CrossGen's Cucca Moves On Up
By Brian Jacks


With another school year over, it's time for a new graduate to spread his wings. Beginning with August's MERIDIAN #39, Vincenzo Cucca, another success story of CrossGen's Associate Penciler program, will join the acclaimed fantasy series as its ongoing illustrator. Steve McNiven, after flying high with Sephie for nearly two years, is rocketing on to new CrossGen projects after MERIDIAN #36.

"I've seen a lot of artists grow on the job, but I've never seen as accelerated an evolution as that which Steve McNiven displayed on MERIDIAN," stated writer Barbara Kesel. "Steve impressed us with his sample work, and continued to impress legions of readers ever since. Steve brought invention and innovation to his work on this book, and he's always going to be one to watch."

"So what's next for MERIDIAN?" asked Kesel. "Readers already have a hint if they've seen the lovely cover to the direct market version of the MERIDIAN Vol. 2 graphic novel. Vincenzo 'Enzo' Cucca, the latest graduate of our Associate Penciler program, is already making MERIDIAN his own, aided and abetted by inker Don Hillsman II and colorist Sumi Pak New art team, same old writer, and some incredible surprises coming up!"

And to give you a taste of the excitement on the way, feast your eyes on these two covers -- MERIDIAN #39 and #40 -- by the new team of Enzo Cucca, Don Hillsman II and Sumi Pak.
