In the war for forever, time is only an
obstacle. Warriors jump from century to century, their battlefields span all of history but have led them to a stalemate. But now a 16 year old girl from present-day South Carolina will turn the tide. The symbol on her chest makes her part of this war, but will she save us or damn all of creation? New York Times best-selling scribe Mike Carey (Age of X, The Unwritten) and Leonard Kirk (New Mutants) begin the next great comic epic.

    This is the first of a four-parter, and it shows no signs of slowing down. This issue might be a letdown to CrossGen fans hoping for a continuation of those tales from yesteryear, but if they stick with it, they'll discover this story is right inline with the CrossGen spirit. Read Full Review

    I guess the best thing I can say here is that I'm definitely in for the long haul, but I'm really not sure how much of the CrossGen Universe we'll see. El Cazador promises to be a nice adventure, but does the typical Earthbound teenager going too far outside the whole idea of CrossGen? We'll wait and see… Read Full Review

    IGN - Mar 9, 2011

    For the issue that marks the return of CrossGen under Marvel Comics, Sigil #1 is a success. It effectively establishes that the creators involved with the CrossGen properties are working to create something entirely different from the original books while keeping their spirit intact. Mike Carey has set up an interesting plot with fantastic artwork from Leonard Kirk supplementing the entire ride. I'm excited to see where the Sigil goes from here. Read Full Review
