In the last show I mentioned I 'd been reading Garth Ennis latest comic for Avatar Press called Crossed. It is a really top notch comic for the following reasons. Garth Ennis is reason number one. Let 's face it I got into Preacher the seminal comic of the nineties quite late and when I paged through it trade after trade I liked what I read.
But I digress... the subject of Crossed...
It follows the journey of several survivors of an inexplicable wave of madness that assailed their town and the people infected with this madness look like the guy above.
And how that journey changes them in the process.
How you do deal with something of a curve ball not familiar to the reader like zombie hordes and legions of the undead but something that was once a person and now is quite insane and homicidal with no off switch and they work together with a tribal intelligence to make sure you either join their ranks of madness or die ?
Crossed is only 4 issues in so far so it is an easy buy in to put your duckets down for a really good ride.
