CrossGen comes to Florida, VH1’s ‘bad’ Icon list: Princess Diana, Bill Clinton, Bono

CrossGen “a big player in a short amount of time”:

CrossGen gets a great write up in Florida Today, which profiles how different they are from the other publishers.

As mentioned in the article, the CrossGen universe is full of fantasy characters not superheroes in tights. There is mention of great work done by penciler Greg Land and colorist Justin Ponsor.

The article breaks down various projects by the Tampa-based company that has leaped to the number four spot for sales. DVDs, digital comics, the reading program and just the pure love of comics – this is CrossGen.

Re: VH1 List (particularly Princess Di on the Top Ten): Just goes to show how preposterous these lists have become.

I understood why many of the “Icons” were on the list, just not WHERE they were on the list. Diana was joined by fellow icons Bill Clinton (18), John F. Kennedy Jr.(24), while his Dad JFK came in at number 32. Travolta was 28 edging James Dean who made it at 26.

My wife was particular disappointed that Bono, of U2, placed a paltry 73. What was Sigmund Freud doing on the list? He did beat out Versace and Calvin Klein. VH1 can’t define “Icon” any better than EW could define “Cult.”
