C-Day 2014 is coming. March 26 is the day that the hordes of Crossed maniacs will descend upon unsuspecting comic shops in search of the highly anticipated issue of Crossed: Badlands#50. This year’s anniversary issue is a Garth Ennis penned masterpiece that takes fans back to the origin of the outbreak with “Patient Zero.” The new story arc will see Ennis address the cause of the plague and reveal some hints about where it originated. Was it an act of god? Did it begin as a man-made bio weapon? Is it the final evolution of human kind? Now is your chance to find out.
The issue will come with a celebratory host of covers from some of the best illustrators Avatar has to offer. With a regular, Wraparound, Torture, True Romance, Final Fantasy, Mission Failure, Amazons, and two incentive covers – Red Crossed and Pure Art – there are going to be enough options to satisfy even the most voracious of Crossed appetites. There is also a limited edition Deluxe Collectors Box Set that includes all the covers and a special Crossed #50 Badlands VIP cover that is only available in the set. Other swag includes the Patient Zero Ashcan Signature Edition (signed by Ennis, Zanier, & Burrows), six 11×17 art prints, and an original art Crossed Sketch Card by Tomas Aria. All told it is nearly $200 worth of Crossed insanity for a $99.99 price and is strictly limited to 400 sets.
Be sure to let your local comic shop know what to order for you to satisfy your Crossed cravings this coming C-Day.
