By Solusandra’s light (see NEGATION #4!), the world has changed!
But... what does that mean?
This proemial entity’s energy has chosen hosts. These beings are marked by SIGILS. Thus, they are SIGIL-BEARERS.
While Solusandra’s herald has found some of them, many others know nothing of the truth. Only that as they slept, their life changed.
Charon’s malignancy haunts the universe still... but more pressing is the avalanche of crises emerging in the wake of the Sigil-Bearers.

SCION #1
(CROSSGENESIS #2)
Written by TINI HOWARD
Plot by H-E-D
Art by MARCUS TO
Sevelith. Hothive. The Crooked Market. Otherworld has many kingdoms. But when it comes to Earthly affairs, none are more involved than Avalon.
Despite what the many famous tales of Avalon would have you think, this realm is not just King Arthur and the Court of Camelot.
For untold aeons, the Raven Court and the Heron Court have warred with each other, a bloody carnage that even Camelot could not solve.
A generation ago, the Starlight Citadel — with one Opal Luna Saturnyne as chief negotiator — managed to negotiate a ceasefire that, however tenuous, has lasted until the present day.
Now Omniversal Majestrix, Saturnyne would see her accomplishment preserved. The recent CROSSGENESIS event threatens to undo that peace: And so she sends forth her champion: Betsy Braddock, aka CAPTAIN BRITAIN!
Betsy isn’t going alone. Accompanying her is Shevaun Haldane, aka DARK ANGEL.
Betsy would welcome the backup... if not for the fact that she and Shevaun dated back at university. It was messy.
But as an agent of the Fabric of the Universe, Shevaun has her own reasons to investigate the SIGILS. And a Sigil is at the heart of the turmoil embroiling Avalon!
It seems that the young HERON PRINCE has become one of the SIGIL-BEAERS. The Raven Court, both covetous and fearful of this power, views this endowment as a violation of the terms of armistice.
Betsy attempts to maintain the peace between the Herons and the Ravens... but can she even keep the peace between herself and Shevaun?

The Raven Court seethes at the arrival of representatives of the Starlight Citadel to the Heron Court!
CAPTAIN BRITAIN and DARK ANGEL soon discover Saturnyne left out a key facet of the peace treaty she’d negotiated.
To assure the security of the arrangement, there was a hostage exchange: the Heron and Raven Courts swapped princes!
This means the HERON PRINCE, is actually a Raven by blood.
Now that he is a SIGIL-BEARER, the Raven Court wants him back!
But the Heron Prince is loyal to the family that raised him, not the one that bore him.
Betsy and Shevaun debate ways to ameliorate the situation, but they’re wasting their time.
It’s all hands on deck as the Raven Court attacks!

Mystic (Vol. 1)[]

MYSTIC #1
(CROSSGENESIS #3)
Written by NOELLE STEVENSON
Plot by H-E-D
Art by AUDREY MOK
Giselle Villard was perfectly happy with her life as it was.
Was she any good at magic? No. Not at all. Was that a little awkward considering her status as heir to one of the most influential guilds on Ciress? Perhaps for her sister. Definitely for her parents.
But Giselle was never bothered. Magic was fussy. Magic was difficult. Magic meant long hours studying inside and lots of official things to attend to, all of them boring. The only fun sorcerer she’d ever met was Peter Quill, and dating Star-Lord turned out to be a disaster. And then he ended up becoming the stuffy new Master of the Sun anyway.
Giselle more than satisfied by her life of travel, parties, and generally just having fun. Leave the magic to Genevieve, she thought.
But that was before the CROSSGENESIS changed everything!
Now, a SIGIL imbuing her with Energy Transcendent has been inscribed on her hand. It was fun, at first. She helped make a big shield over Ciress. Thought it would be a one-time thing.
But now people have started expect great, complicated feats from her. Especially because suddenly it seems like the magic is starting to get drained out of Ciress.
Giselle is really going to be in trouble if people find out the reason the magic is disappearing is because she’s absorbing it into her Sigil. And doesn’t know how to stop it.
Good news: there is one person she can trust to help her figure it out, in secret.
Bad news: it’s her sister, Genevieve. Perfect.

Giselle Villard is having a GREAT time training with Genevieve, her sister.
She LOVES being stuck in the library for hours, reading the densest books one could imagine.
She ADORES practicing the same techniques over, and over, and over, and over.
NOTHING could be better than having to endure the passive-aggressive snark of her sibling all day.
And of course the STRESS from her Sigil steadily draining the planet’s magic dry is a delight.
HOW COULD THINGS POSSIBLY GET BETTER?
..Ahem.
Forgive the sarcasm. It’s simply been a… difficult time.
So when Genevieve discovers a ritual that seems poised to set everything right, one can imagine Giselle’s excitement.
Only, Genevieve doesn’t think her sister is ready. The ritual done wrong is a recipe for disaster.
Giselle isn’t thinking about that.
Will the Villard sisters come together, or fall even further apart than before?

Written by Vita Ayala
Plot by H-E-D
Art by Haemi Jang
Part One – “UNDER THE TIDE”
Back in Negation: the Home Front, Jennifer Kale and Namor the Sub-Mariner journeyed to the depths of the seas, to a ruin so ancient as to be forgotten. Only the faint emanations of Energy Transcendent revealed its location to them.
What they found shocked them: the last temple of Zhered-Na.
Now, awakened by their Sigils, six mysterious figures emerge from the ruin. The lost disciples of Zhered-Na herself, Paragons of the Zheredian principles of Empathy, Passion, Mind, Spirit, and Body: the Crux!
When their mistress foresaw the Great Cataclysm that would destroy Atlantis, the Crux were chosen to be put into a magical stasis. Upon waking, they were to be caretakers of the survivors of Atlantis. They expected the sleep to last a few years, a decade or two at most.
20,000 years later, the Crux was finally awoken. A phantom of their old ally Dakimh the Enchanter, also known as Solusandra’s Herald Danik, endowed each member with a Sigil, a mark made of Energy Transcendent, before vanishing.
Now they awake to an unexpected world. They were meant to safeguard a people, but the Atlantis they knew died while they slept.
As you might imagine, they take the news… poorly.
Can Jennifer and Namor convince these pre-Cataclysmic throwbacks that the modern Atlanteans aren’t just a bunch of blue-skinned amphibious graverobbers?

Now, their home has sunk beneath the waves, transformed beyond recognition.
Last issue, Jennifer Kale and Namor did their best to calm down the awakened ancients, though more than a few blows were exchanged.
Will the Crux find a new home in this new Atlantis?
And what ancient enemy has followed them from the past?
