Kieron Gillen’s powerful tale of the Crossed in the present and far flung past is being collected into the Crossed Vol 14 TPB this Fall. The series spun out of the festivities for the 2015 C-Day events earlier this year. Now retailers are preparing their orders for a volume that sees one of today’s hottest writers deliver a powerful depiction of the most grueling horror story being published in comics.
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.
