    Topic: CROSSGEN CANCELS COMPENDIA
    posted posted April 17, 2003 05:27 AM by MattBrady

    According to a report at ICV2, CrossGen will cancel its Compendia line (Forge and Vector) after the respective 13th issues that ship this month. All orders for Compendia issues #14-#16 have been cancelled.

    The Compendia were anthology trades, which contained several different CrossGen stories from their regular monthly comics.

    CrossGen’s Chris Oarr told ICV2 that while the Compendia were useful in reaching new readers, the newcomers quickly gravitated to the regular trades and monthly comics. This is the first major cancellation of a CrossGen product line in just under three years of business.

    As reported earlier, CrossGen will focus much of its energy on its Traveler-sized trade line of products, with six Traveler editions being released in June.

    Following ICV2's announcement, CrossGen issued its own press release:

    Responding to the purchasing preference of both retailers and readers, the FORGE and VECTOR Compendia will cease publication. The monthly anthologies, which reprinted CrossGen Entertainment's line of comic books in a innovative high-page-count/low-price format, will end their respective runs after the publication of their 13th issues, both of which go on sale in April.

    "I'm proud that we gave this program over a full year to develop," stated Vice President of Sales Chris Oarr. "The Compendia were successful in reaching new readers. However, having been introduced to the entire CrossGen line, these new fans clearly gravitated toward our sequentially released graphic novels and comic books. After a year it was apparent that publishing the Compendia, even at a reduced price, no longer made good business sense."

    "The question we constantly ask ourselves is 'What do readers and retailers want?'" explained Oarr. "And in this case, while we delivered an affordable and portable package that many industry voices have asked for over the years, the actual buying behavior revealed that the majority prefers our individual graphic novels and comic books. We want to thank the strong core of fans who enjoyed FORGE and VECTOR, and we hope that they'll continue to follow our stories in our additional formats."

    "The Compendia were my gateway to the heroes of CrossGen, so I'm going to miss these handy books," added Director of Marketing & Communications Bill Rosemann. "The good news is, since CrossGen is dedicated to developing innovative multiple formats, readers can still follow their favorite CrossGen characters in other low cost options, including the individual comic books, graphic novels, comicsontheweb.com, and additional formats that we'll be announcing soon. And if you like the smaller Compendia size -which feedback tells us that many of you do--be on the watch for six new portable and affordable Traveler graphic novels in June!"

    CrossGen Cancels Compendia
    After April Issues
    April 16, 2003

    CrossGen is announcing Thursday that it is canceling its Compendia titles, Forge and Vector (nee Edge), after their 13th issues this month. Orders for issues 14-16 will be canceled. The Compendia were CrossGen's anthology trade paperback formats, with around 200 pages retailing for $7.95 (see "CrossGen Reformats Compendia").

    CrossGen VP Sales Chris Oarr explained the change. "The Compendia were successful in reaching new readers," he said. "However, having been introduced to the entire CrossGen line, these new fans clearly gravitated toward our sequentially released graphic novels and comic books. After a year it was apparent that publishing the Compendia, even at a reduced price, no longer made good business sense."

    CrossGen is putting its experience with books of this size to good use, however, by publishing single title "traveler" trade paperback editions (see "CrossGen Plans Traveler Trade Paperback Editions"). The company is rapidly expanding the number of titles in the traveler format this summer (see "CrossGen Goes Big with Traveler Editions").
