    Before CrossGen Comics went bankrupted, they teased a CrossGen CrossOver event called "The War".

    George Perez was going to be the superstar artist for the event, but couldn't commit to it because he was still working on the much-delayed JLA/Avengers books. Those who waited the first time might remember that issue #4 was nine months behind (originally going to ship June 2003, but did not deliver until March 2004).

    CrossGen Comics, which was probably burning through money every month, couldn't wait for George, so they went ahead with The War (now renamed as "Negaton War") with different artists in April 2004.

    The only War-related item that George produced was this "Call To Arms" Poster. It was available in a smaller 11x17 and larger 24x36 print (the larger print was limited to 1,000 prints and signed by George Perez with a Certificate of Authenticity). They were sold at $10 and $30, respectively. The poster was inked by Rick Magyar with colors by Mike Atiyeh.

    Personally speaking, I wish it wasn't in silhouette, but in the typical details that we've come to expect of George Perez's work. I haven't checked the timeline, but this was the probably the last thing George produced for CrossGen.

    If you're looking for a way to support CrossGen, why not pick up a THE WAR: CALL TO ARMS POSTER (24x36). It only took two days for the poster to arrive at my house.

    If you are interested in picking up either of the posters, they are available on the CrossGen store. They are priced $29.95 (for the larger of the two posters) and $9.95. Shipping via Airborne is $5.95 and you must have a Paypal account.

    The poster also comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

    It reads: "This certifies that this limited edition print was created by CrossGen Entertainment artists George Pérez (penciler), Rick Magyar (inker) & Mike Atiyeh (colorist). Authorized Signature ___________ Mark Alessi (CEO and President). Dated 1 day of October, 2003."
