CROSSGEN FOR FEBRUARY

Following are CrossGen Entertainment's solicitations for February, with information coming from the company.

In truth, Basildon is merely an identity passed on from one agent to the next, building up a reputation so feared and respected that the mere mention of Sir Charles is enough to make rogue nations change their wicked ways. But now times are changing, and not only is the next top spy in training a Yank...but she's also a woman! Can Stephanie Shelley, a thoroughly modern American, live up to the role of the legendary British super spy? And can she bear to learn the ropes from the current Sir Charles--the most unstoppable, deadly, and infuriatingly sexist Basildon ever?
