    Okay, so this wasnt a rousing review. Did you really think I was going to call this comic an unqualified success just because the writer died? That wouldnt be fair to you, me, or Mr. Miers. I will say that I enjoyed his series Generic Comics. It was a funny satire of the comics industry and superhero genre. Id like to see that collected into a trade book. Criss Cross is a decent book; good enough to warrant a second issue. Whether another writer can write as well as Miers remains to be seen. Read Full Review

    So for me, Criss Cross is a bit of a mixed bag. Its a mature and interesting comic, and the premise holds a great deal of potential for entertaining stories in the future. Given the death of the writer, there may not be any future issues, but nonetheless, Id recommend this comic, if only because it provides a glimpse of what comics can do if the U.S. industry could get out of its rut.

    Personal Notes: I never knew Doug Miers (ironic about the last name I mean, how many Miers guys are there running around?), and in fact, I didnt purchase this comic. It was a reviewer preview copy, but after reading about Doug, I would have certainly purchased at least a couple of copies. I have become acquainted with him through the eyes of his friends, family, and coworkers in the tribute in the back of this issue. You see, Doug was an independent creator, agent, and retailer who never made it to the likes of Marvel, DC, etc., but was always out there working and promoting the comic industry. Its obvious that he will be missed Read Full Review
