Crossed66-RegularDavid Lapham has penned some of the most vital stories in the Crossed Universe.  From Crossed: Family Values to Crossed: Psychopath, his influence and characters have defined the depths to which those infected by the virus will go to attain their miserable goals.  The celebrated scribe Crossed66-FatalFantasyhas returned to the pages of Crossed: Badlands to tell a story of deprivation that drives a normal man to become a monster.

Crossed66-WrapLapham shows us the decent into madness fueled by revenge in this essential arc in the Crossed cannon.  Crossed: Badlands #66 is in stores this week.

Justin Jordan & Simon Spurrier Tackle Crossed Vol 11 TPB

CrossedVol11-TPBTwo fan favorite writers team up to deliver a new volume of the vilest grueling horror in comics with Crossed Vol 11 TPB.  This new collection includes Jordan’s first work on Crossed, his frightening story from Crossed: Badlands #57 – 61 that details two women’s attempt to outrun the Crossed and their past.  But sometimes finding someone to save you isn’t always the best situation.  Especially when that person has a death wish for a horde of Crossed and plans to use you to accomplish it.

CrossedVol11-HCSi Spurrier is no stranger to the world of Crossed.  His Wish You Were Here webseries masterfully told a long form tale that was engaging and fearless.  Now he delivers a one shot story of an asthmatic kid stranded atop a farm tower watching the Crossed just below him circle and wait for their chance at grabbing him.  Its the kind of story that will scar you.  As you would expect, as in a world of Crossed there is no help and there is no hope.  There is only the Crossed.

Ask your local comic shop to reserve a copy of Crossed Vol 11 TPB for you today and join the frenzy.

Justin Jordan Goes Dark

The Dark Gods are returning and only a few mysterious people from an organization called “The Storm” can stand between the chaos and the innocent.  In the first issue of Dark DarkGods1-regGods, we are introduced to Josh Resnick, a guy literally in the wrong place at the wrong time.  As the forces of chaos literally have sprung up from beneath his feet in a seemingly normal office building, Josh has to survive much more than standard office politics.  Now coworkers practice ritual sacrifice and horrific creatures from the world of nightmares are out to kill him.

DarkGods1-DietyThe first two issues of Justin Jordan’s Dark Gods reveal a world that is on the brink, unbeknownst to the general population.  As the creatures from the void force their way into the world we know, the dam that holds the chaos at bay is reaching its snapping point. Soon the insanity of the elder gods will be loose and nothing will be able to save the human race.

DarkGods1-SirenIf you enjoy action-horror comics and want a taste of something fresh, give Dark Gods a try.  Issue #1 is in stores now and available digitally from ComiXology.
