The solicitation for Kieron Gillen’s critically acclaimed Crossed arc, “Homo Tortor,” is collected for the first time in the new September issue of Previews in comic shops now. Scheduled for release in November, this essential collection marks the first time the Uber scribe has spun a tale within the confines of Garth Ennis’ violent survival horror universe. Spinning out of C-Day 2015, Gillen’s tale takes place in both the present and the ancient past as it sheds some light on a prehistoric outbreak of the deadly contagion.
CROSSED VOL 14 TPB & HC
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Kieron Gillen (Uber, Wicked & Devine) takes the horrors of
the Crossed back to the ancient past where 75,000 years ago humanity came as close as it has ever come to being purged from the Earth. There were as few as 2000 humans remaining. This is historical fact. Why it came to this is generally blamed on super-volcano Toba causing a minor ice-age. But that’s not the full story. That is not the history of the Homo Tortor, i.e. Man The Torturer. This empire before the beginning of time, that sends raiding parties gathering other Homo species and enormous mega-fauna, invented cruelty, refined domination, and perfected killing. And they think their power will last forever. There is no help, there is no hope. There is only the Crossed. This volume collects issues #75 – 80 of the ongoing Crossed: Badlands series. Available in paperback and hardcover editions.
