Overview

Beyond the dimensional rift exists an evil known as the Negation, an empire bent on expanding into our reality. They have kidnapped an array of beings from across the CrossGen universe, condemning them to a prison planet where their strengths and weaknesses can be probed. Lost and without a clue, a small group nevertheless breaks free of their gulag. They manage to escape under the dubious leadership of Obregon Kaine, a human being without any special powers or abilities that somehow forges them into a team. Kaine convinces them that the only way home is to find, corner, and defeat Charon, the godlike leader of the Negation Empire. It's The Great Escape meets The Dirty Dozen in a galaxy far, far away.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
CrossGen comics readers have been lured into a complicated maze of interrelated story lines. The books of the CrossGen universe leave crucial mysteries unresolved, but hint that readers might be able to figure it out if they buy everything CrossGen publishes. Fat chance. Even if fans could keep up with CrossGen's production, it's unlikely the company will reveal all the secrets and give up a major sales hook. Nevertheless, Negation does use these multiple worlds effectively. In this book, soldiers of the villainous Negation empire have kidnapped characters from many CrossGen titles in order to test them through mortal combat. Planning future conquests, the Negation empire wants to know which might be the tougher foe: Obregon Caine, from the Sigil series, or, say, Evinlea, from The First series. When the CrossGen captives escape, the Negation forces pursue, and the escapees try to accommodate their wildly eclectic talents to survive. The fugitives are a diverse bunch and their interpersonal conflicts can be entertaining. Star Trek fans will be amused by a bumbling starship crew that the escapees encounter. But mainly it's the book's unusually good color artwork that will keep readers hooked. The Negation troopers always look cool when they show up in other CrossGen titles, and Pelletier amusingly depicts the rest of the empire. He makes High Castellan Komptin, the jailer charged with recapturing the escapees, simultaneously cute and threatening, while Lawbringer Qztr, also out to recapture the heroes, is an S&M leather freak's dream. Even if it doesn't ultimately explain the CrossGen universe, this book is a feast for the eyes. (Mar.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
Adult/High School-One hundred beings from the CrossGen universe have been abducted and taken through a dimensional rift to a world controlled by the Negation. The prisoners exist in fear and anarchy. Many have abilities beyond those of most humans, but something about their prison renders their powers almost useless. Only Obregon Kaine, a former captain with the 24th armored air cavalry, has the wits and experience to guess what's going on, and he concocts a plan to break out. During the attempt, the Negation high command destroys the facility and some inmates escape, including Kaine. High Castellan Komptin, who was in charge of the prison experiment, develops a grudge against him and musters the Negation to track him down. "Bohica" is an acronym for "Bend Over, Here It Comes Again," and that basically describes the situation, which goes from bad to worse. It's easy to feel Kaine's frustration with people who have vast cosmic powers and itty-bitty brains, and touches of humor help keep things from being relentlessly bleak.-Susan Salpini, Fairfax County Public Schools, VA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    Negation Volume 1: BOHICA!

    Let's get this out of the way first: The Negation is without a doubt in my mind the best piece of comic book literature ever written. Tony Bedard balances a cast of more than 2 dozen seamlessly and at no point do you feel like characters are slipping into the background.
    As a matter of fact somehow he does the impossible by developing all the characters in the book in depth with only the two years he was given for the book.

    The story is about a being named Charon who controls an entire universe (The Negation). With his thirst for dominance still unquenched he discovers our universe and decides to conquer it aswell. To do so he kidnaps 100 beings from different worlds to experiment on them and test them for weaknesses. These 100 prisoners range in power and ability. Some, are nothing more than human, like the tired war veteran Obregon Kaine while the god-like Evinlea has the power to raze a planet.
    Battered and on the run from an entire universe, this group of refugees must go to whatever means neccessary to survive... The problem? Most of them would just as soon kill one another than work with them.

    This is the story that started it all! Volume 1 introduces our massive cast of characters as the break out of High Constellan Komptin's jail and find themselves on the run. No one knows what the future has in store, but one thing is certain: Most of them won't survive.
