This ought to set the fires under everyone. The most depraved, over the top, sadistic, and just plain morally inept series to ever cross (no pun intended I swear) mainstream comic shelves is returning this May with “CROSSED: FAMILY VALUES”. The Garth Ennis created series “CROSSED” was rewarded with both heavy criticism and a horror comic of the year award upon its initial release, and for a helluva good reason on both ends. This is the sort of stuff your parents warned you about kids. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
“Nothing is sacred as Crossed returns! The horror series of the year returns with a new six-issue series written by David Lapham! Set right at the start of the Crossed outbreak, this tale of depravity promises to shock and disturb you with even more intensity than the first series! The Pratt family lived an idyllic life on a horse ranch in North Carolina. A few generations of family working, living, and learning together. But not all things should be shared with, nor done to, other human beings. Much less your own family. Some men are just born evil, some men are turned Crossed. But which is worse? Imagine, for a moment, the worst crimes against humanity. Picture the cruelest affronts to decency. Conjure your darkest nightmares… and then realize it could all be so much worse. When civilization crumbles in one terrifying moment; when people are gleefully breaking into unthinkable acts of violence all around you; when everyone you love has died screaming in agony: What do you do? There is no help. There is no hope. There is no escape. There are only the Crossed. Crossed: Family Values #1 is available with a Regular cover by Jacen Burrows, a Wraparound cover by series artist Javier Barreno, a Torture cover by Juan Jose Ryp, and a special rare Red Crossed retailer incentive.”
