CrossGen welcomed in the Mouse House

CrossGen Entertainment of Oldsmar launched 26 comic book series during a dynamic five-year run that ended in bankruptcy court. The Walt Disney Co. snagged the rights to all 26 titles at auction last year for $1-million.

Will Disney fare better with CrossGen's intellectual property? We're about to find out.

The entertainment powerhouse recently announced plans to turn one of CrossGen's titles, Abadazad, into a series of chapter books for children ages 9 to 12. Tentatively priced at $9.99 apiece, the books - written as if they were the diary of the main character, Kate - will meld traditional comic book panels, text and other artwork.

Meridian would make a great movie, and Ruse would make a great television series, but I guess Abadazad would make a bigger killing. At least Alessi got something out of it all, even if his name isn't in the article.
