Had a conversation with a friend of mine who's also a comic book collector about Crossgen today, he knew I was into them back in the day but when I mentioned that my time with Crossgen was probably my absolute favorite time as a comic book collector he though I was crazy. I guess it was just my taste. I liked the different styles of characters and stories they told, they had gods, fantasy, sci-fi, superhero, jungle style characters, and other mixes of things and it was truly amazing how they all connected to create a giant universe. The only other time my comic book collecting was rivaled by my time with Crossgen was between 1995-1998 when I was heavy into Sovereign Seven by DC and X-Men titles by Marvel, those years were an absolute whirlwind of comic book store visits and trying to keep up with every book I could on literally no money. I was 14 in 1995 and literally had to mow lawns and shovel driveways to earn cash, that and my dad used to give me $20 every weekend for spending cash and it all went toward comics.
