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.

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. ItÃ¢??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 canÃ¢??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.
"If you can stomach it, you should be reading Crossed right now." (Bloody-Disgusting.com)"
