Meridian is full of politics like any good fantasy. Selphie learns of how the poor situation of this world has lead people to dark decisions, and they are not as nice as they first seem. She has gained powers from a yet unidentified source and seeks to save her people. These other people make her into a stronger more worldly person; she may start out naive but she learns quickly and will make a strong heroine in the end.

The Short-lived company of Cross-Gen Comics tried to create their own universe of comic-book characters and subsequently a company to compete against DC and Marvel. Perhaps they should have just focused on making good characters and stories. As such, Meridian was just one of many which got buried in the clutter.

Barabara Kesel created a fantastic and imaginative world but it was weighted down by the "Cross-Gen" Universe and their convoluted continuity that stretched over dozens of books. I'm surprised Meridan is remembered at all.

It's a good little story. The art is treat as well because it features some good talent before they made their mark. Joshua Middleton went on to draw the short lived but popular NYX. His pencils barely shine through of Meridian (accept on issue 5 thanks to a different colorist). The series is then taken over by the same Steve McNiven who went on to draw Marvel's Civil War.

But enough about esoteric comic industry chat. It's a good little story with an inspiring heroine that didn't truly get a chance to fly.
