Comic News:
He-Man Joins CrossGen
By Brian Jacks


He may have adventures on the planet Eternia, but the sword-swinging icon known as He-Man now calls Florida home. MVCreations, publisher of the popular Masters of the Universe series as well as additional upcoming all-ages titles such as Space Ace and Dragon's Lair, has signed an agreement with CrossGeneration Entertainment to produce comic books and trade paperbacks under the CGE banner. Featuring a classic battle between good and evil on a world that mixes science with sorcery, Masters of the Universe enjoys global recognition as a pop culture powerhouse, currently inspiring a successful toy line from Mattel and a popular cartoon series by Mike Young Productions on the Cartoon Network.

"CrossGen is a company with exceptional ideas and smart plans for the future. They strive to get their product into the hands of new readers, especially children, which is very important to us," said MVCreations President Val Staples. "Having worked with CrossGen before as a freelance artist, I am familiar with how professional and committed they are to their goals. That made a huge impression on all of us."

"I'm thrilled to have MVCreations join the family," stated CGE Managing Editor Ian M. Feller. "They're a great group of people who are dedicated to working hard and putting out a great product that is suitable for an all-ages worldwide market. With Masters of the Universe as well as the upcoming Dragon's Lair, Space Ace, and other cool titles that we'll soon announce, MVCreations have proven that they can do top-notch work on a timely basis. They're exactly the type of people that CGE was designed to work with."

"From He-Man to Teela to Skeletor, these larger-than-life characters were burned into the minds of many young fans twenty years ago, and thanks the all-new tales by MVCreations, a whole new generation can take part in their epic struggle," said CGE Director of Marketing and ommunications Bill Rosemann. "Titles such as Masters of the Universe, Dragon's Lair, and Space Ace are welcome additions to our line-up-and examples of how CrossGen is taking concrete steps to reach new audiences."

"We are very excited to walk into 2003 with CrossGen for what will be their biggest year yet," concluded Staples. "This is going to be a rewarding experience for everyone involved."

The company notes that everyone should stay tuned for upcoming announcements concerning the first projects to be released by MVCreations under the CrossGen banner.
