You either love “CROSSED” or you hate “CROSSED”. There really isn’t any middle ground there. Most people hate it for its, ahem, lack of any moral fiber whatsoever. (I mean this in the most literal way possible) But if you’re like me you don’t let that stop you from loving the title. That is why I am happy to share a special (bloody and disgusting) look at the stunning variant covers for Avatar Press’ first issue of the newest arc in the “CROSSED” series with “FAMILY VALUES”. These covers will only be available at the convention this weekend in Chicago, as will the special little giveaway that will come along with it. Read on for all the details.
“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.”
