Description

In a volume that spans several eras of Crossed infection, we join three prolific writers each telling a tale set in the horrifying misery of the world during the plague. Simon Spurrier puts us in the mind of a unique Crossed relationship, one which sees lovers from two different worlds as they are driven apart by infection. David Lapham continues fan favorite Crossed Psychopath survivor, Amanda s tale as she fights with the rising insanity in her own mind and a group of lunatic scavengers in The Livers. And series creator Garth Ennis returns to tell a story so big that it re-defines the way you will see the Crossed. In The Fatal Englishman the biggest question in the Crossed universe is answered how it all begins. Go where other horror survival stories fear to tread and enter the grueling world of the Crossed! Trade collects issues #19-28 of the Crossed Badlands series."

About Garth Ennis

A cornerstone of the modern comic industry, Garth Ennis is most easily recognized as the creator of Preacher, one of the best-selling graphic novel series of all time. His full list of writing credits is nothing short of extraordinary; his career highlights include "Judge Dredd, Hellblazer, The Demon, Hitman, Punisher, The Pro, War Story, and The Boys." Over the past ten years, Ennis has published numerous acclaimed and fan-favorite projects through Avatar Press, including "Dicks, Chronicles Of Wormwood, 303, Streets Of Glory," and the wildly successful Crossed series. He wrote and directed his first film, "Stitched," which Avatar Press continued as an ongoing series. Beginning his career in comic books as a freelance artist in 1990, David Lapham founded El Capitan Books in 1995 exclusively to publish his Eisner Award-winning crime comic book series, "Stray Bullets." In recent years, he has worked as a writer for DC Comics, Marvel Comics, IDW Publishing, Dark Horse, and finally Avatar Press, on three "Crossed" projects ("Family Values," "Crossed 3D," "Badlands," and "Psychopath"), "Ferals," and "Caligula." Simon Spurrier, a British author of comic books and novels, first began writing professionally in 2001. He contributed extensively to the library of respected UK publisher 2000 AD, including their flagship comic book series "Judge Dredd, Harry Kipling, Lobster Random, and The Simping Detective." He also wrote several novels set in the 2000 AD and Warhammer 40,000 story continuities. With the debut of his creator-owned series "Gutsville" in 2007, Spurrier began to work in the American comic book market, predominantly on such Marvel Comics properties as "Silver Surfer, Ghost Rider, and X-Men." In 2011, Spurrier launched a successful web comic through Avatar Press, "Crossed: Wish You Were Here," which presents his take on the on the popular horror franchise (CrossedComic.com).

Customer reviews

This is a mighty book with a lot of content. Really good content. The first tale is by Garth Ennis doing what he does best; talking about soldiers and religion. Itâ??s a fine story with a rock solid pace. It does suffer a little from being a polemic but Ennis soapboxes very well and with a lot of research. The colouring is exceptionally vibrant to the point of unrealistic but this gives the nightmare future of the Crossed quite an eerie and surreal quality that works well. The outstanding point is the panelling. This is some of the most imaginative you have ever seen. The borders are composed of blades of grass, kitchen tiles, playing cards and more to make this an incredibly artistic vision. The second tale by David Lapham reveals the fate of Amanda whom we met in volume three. This is another tale examining mental illness. Whilst better than the original it still fails to rise above middle of the road. The final story by Si Spurrier canâ??t match the incredible work he has been doing on Crossed: Wish You Were Here. This is kind of a slice of life love story with a little twist but none of the thought-provoking drama we know he is capable of. Raulo Caceras returns on art duties and we get some more surprise framing techniques. Once again it is nice to have a big dollop of the Crossed but as time passes the art loses its shock value and occasionally veers into the uncomfortable. Nothing to make you stop reading but it drags it down from a higher rating.show more
