Crossed +100 #7 Welcomes Simon Spurrier

Crossed100n7-regularThe say the future is wide open and ripe with possibilities.  Well the people that say that clearly don’t live in a Crossed world.  This June Crossed Wish You Were Here scribe Simon Spurrier steps into the Crossed +100 world created by the one and only Alan Moore.  Moore hand selected Spurrier for the unenviable duty of picking up the story of Future Taylor from where Moore’s groundbreaking story leaves off.

Crossed100n7-WishfulFictionCrossed fans have been captivated by Moore’s unique and incredibly detailed world in Crossed +100.  Spurrier promises to take the story in a umique direction while maintaining the high standards of intricate detail and research that made the world such an incredible achievement.  Of Spurrier’s ability, Moore had this to say:

“Si Spurrier attacks a concept with a ferocity that’s unlike that of anybody else, cracking its bones to see what the marrow tastes like and delivering something startling, Crossed100n7-HorrificHomagedreadful, funny and heartfelt; something visceral and smart and crackling with original ideas.  With his run on Crossed +100 he takes that skull-littered wilderness in a direction which is shocking, perfect, and one that I’d never have dreamed of in a hundred years.  This, believe me, is going to be **** movie.” – Alan Moore

Crossed100n7-CrossedWiresWith an endorsement like that you can be sure Crossed +100 #7, out in June, will be one of the must read books of the season.  Ask your local retailer to reserve a copy for you today.

C-Day One Week Away!

Crossed75-regThe worldwide celebration of Garth Ennis’ grueling horror series, Crossed begins in local comic shops everywhere next Wednesday April 15th.  Avatar Press is celebrating the occasion with a brand new story arc in Crossed: Badlands by Uber scribe Kieron Gillen that is also on sale for C-Day.  The new arc is the first time that an author other than Ennis himself is writing the C-Day offering.

Kieron Uber 1Kieron Gillen has amassed a huge following for his Image and Marvel comics as well as the groundbreaking series, Uber with Avatar.  Now Gillen puts his stamp on the ever expanding Crossed universe with “Homo Tortor” – a series set in both the present and the ancient past.  Is it possible that the Crossed plague was to blame for the near extinction of the human race during one of the darkest periods in history?  Gillen takes us to that place and what you will see there cannot be unseen.

Crossed75-TortureCelebrate C-Day by donning your Crossed cosplay and acting as an ambassador to Crossed at your local comic shop.  Send in your photos to us on Twitter and Facebook so we can share your experience with all of the Crossed fans.  Everyone have fun on C-Day and remember to be considerate of all fans visiting the store for their weekly comics.
