Christos Gage's debut in the Crossed mythos is one you won't soon forget. This volume of Crossed takes readers into the mind of a traitor to the human race. An anthropologist who sides with an alpha-Crossed to spare his life and betray the struggling survivors around him. Watching his own usefulness dwindle in the eyes of the violence hungry Crossed, he must ultimately make a decision if death will come to him on their terms or his. And fan-favorite, horror master David Lapham returns to the series that he helped establish with a story that pushes the boundaries of sanity to the very brink. The horrific violence of the Crossed spills across the page leaving images that will haunt your nightmares for years to come. There is no help. There is no hope. There is only the Crossed. Go where other horror survival stories fear to tread and enter the grueling world of the Crossed! Trade collects issues #29 - 36 of the ongoing Crossed: Badlands series.

A pair of stories focus on one of the great themes of Crossed - what would you do to survive. Would you make a deal with the Crossed or murder your friends to save your own skin?
Newcomer to the franchise Christos Gage tells a great tale injecting a few snippets of his trademark social commentary. The Crossed are fleshed out a little more and a Crossed character is introduced that could make a return appearance.
Lapham has been telling the same story over again and thanks to the law of monkeys and typewriters he finally does a reasonable job of it. Regular character Amanda returns and we see mental illness and paranoia actually done right. This is what Crossed: Psychopath should have been. Better late than never possibly.
The art is great. Crossed has established a style and visiting artists have no problem slotting right in. The colours for the first story are particularly good proving you donâ??t need gimmicks to please the eye. There is also lot of graphic nudity and sex. As it seems we have become inured to the violence this is what has been taking its place.
