Comic News:
CrossGen Changes Name, More
By Brian Jacks


CrossGen has announced that it is officially changing its name from CrossGeneration Comics, Inc. to CrossGen Entertainment, Inc. (CGE).

Since launching in 2000, CGE has shepherded comic books into a variety of formats, and as a result has evolved into a force in the international entertainment industry, as evidenced by expanding interests in film, television, video games, the Internet, education, technology, and worldwide licensing. In an effort to more efficiently and effectively manage these business lines, CGE has also formed 11 wholly owned subsidiary companies, which represent its broad-based entertainment products and offerings.

"Our 11 subsidiaries are neither spin-offs nor exterior companies that will act independently of CGE," explained CrossGen Entertainment Senior Vice President of Product Development Tony Panaccio. "Rather, they will function together as interior business units, all working towards CGE's overall goals. With this arrangement, all current and future projects will be managed and guided by our founding principals."

"CrossGen has been, and always will be, dedicated to preserving and expanding the comic book medium," stated CGE Publisher and CEO Mark Alessi. "At the same time, we're also bringing our passion -- in a variety of formats -- to audiences who have yet to experience how entertaining our stories can be. And now our name matches how we want the world to perceive comics--as great entertainment, made for anyone with imagination, a thirst for adventure, and a hunger for heroes."

CrossGen Entertainment's new subsidiaries are:

CrossGen Intellectual Property, LLC: CGIP holds all CGE content intellectual property (IP).

CrossGen Technologies, LLC: CGT holds all CGE technology IP and manages technology IP creation, development, production, and application.

CrossGen Publishing, LLC: CGPub publishes all print projects, including CGE Ancillary, Code 6, CrossGen Universe, and foreign publishing.
