Writer David Hine (“The Darkness”) is turning out a bizarre and twisted horror tale in the new story-arc that began in Crossed: Badlands #14. Hine tells the tale of a hedonistic writers retreat, secluded from the rest of the world, as the Crossed epidemic spreads further into the breaches of humanity. The story is filled with enough plot twists and brutal gore to delight even the sickest of horror hounds.

In 2008 writer Garth Ennis and artist Jacen Burrows redefined horror comics with the release of Crossed. The concept was simple; a virus begins infecting people worldwide and causes them to lose all inhibitions and act upon their most evil thoughts. The book became an instant success due to its violent, disgusting and often disturbing imagery, and fans loved it.
After a series of Crossed book written by David Lapham, Ennis and Burrows have finally returned to the sick and depraved world he created to write the initial story arc of Crossed: Badlands, a new bi-weekly ongoing series. In this incarnation of the book, we are introduced to group of Scottish survivors that have managed to survive the Crossed outbreak by heading to rural countryside. This misfit band of survivors, which includes a book store employee, a pregnant woman and a disfigured sharpshooter who claims to be who claims to be Prince Harry, are scavenging for supplies as the Crossed close in.
This weekend at the Avatar Press junket the publisher added more news to the already smoldering pot that they have brewing for “CROSSED” fans as they announced plans to bring series creator Garth Ennis (“PREACHER”) back to the series next year for an all new monthly series. The series titled “BADLANDS” will premier next year from the publisher and be written by Ennis with illustrations from Jacen Burrows. “BADLANDS” will be the first arc of the ongoing series, and will be picked up once the arc ends by scribe Jamie Delano.
