CROSSED VOLUME 1 TP (NEW PRINTING)
(W) Garth Ennis (A/CA) Jacen Burrows
Garth Ennis has pulled out all the stops to write the most depraved and twisted book of his career, one that also may be his most poignant human drama! Crossed is Ennis’ horrifically visceral exploration of the pure evil that humans are truly capable of indulging and collected here are all ten heart-stopping chapters. This gut-wrenching vision is brought to vivid (and more than a little disturbing) life by his partner in crime Jacen Burrows. Imagine, for a moment, the worst crimes against humanity. Picture the cruelest affronts to decency. Conjure your darkest nightmares… and then realize it could all be so much worse. When civilization crumbles in one terrifying moment; when people are gleefully breaking into unthinkable acts of violence all around you; when everyone you love has died screaming in agony: What do you do? There is no help. There is no hope. There is no escape. There are only the Crossed. The Crossed collected volume is available in three editions, all with new covers by series artist Jacen Burrows.

CROSSED VOLUME 2: FAMILY VALUES TP
(W) David Lapham (A) Javier Barreno (CA) Jacen Burrows
All seven issues of David Lapham’s horror masterpiece of Crossed: Family Values are collected here with a large cover gallery! In one terrifying moment, civilization crumbled. An outbreak of insanity swept across the planet, turning millions of people into the homicidal maniacs known as “the Crossed.” But from their isolated horse ranch, the Pratt family of North Carolina remain uninfected and defiant. Bonded together as generations of working, living, and learning together, they rely on Joe, the family patriarch, to see them through the apocalypse. But the Pratt family has a deep, dark secret – one that threatens to tear them apart, even under the constant threat of the murderous hordes. See, some men are turned to Crossed, but others… others are just born evil. Eighteen year-old daughter Adaline will soon discover which breed is worse. David Lapham, the critically acclaimed creator of the gritty STRAY BULLETS series, delivers a tale so twisted, so shocking, it more than earns its place next to the original runaway bestseller, CROSSED VOLUME 1, by superstar writer Garth Ennis! Available in softcover and hardcover formats, with illustrated covers by Jacen Burrows (Alan Moore’s NEONOMICON) Also available in a special Signed Hardcover by writer David Lapham that is limited to just 1000 copies.

CROSSED VOLUME 3: PSYCHOPATH TP
(W) David Lapham (A/CA) Raulo Caceres
The long-awaited third volume of Crossed is finally here, collecting all seven issues of the Psychopath series by David Lapham and artist Raulo Caceres! In one terrifying moment, civilization crumbled. An outbreak of insanity swept across the planet, turning millions of people into the scarred homicidal maniacs known as “the Crossed.” For one small band of survivors, the discovery of a starving, injured man in the desert seems like an unexpected blessing. He knows where they could be safe: the location of the last holdout of the scientific community, where the military offers protection and the cure to the Crossed plague is being developed. But Harold Lorre is not the savior they hope him to be. He’s a calculating, lethal man whose mind was dangerously unhinged even before the world went mad. Surrounded by marauding hordes, their nerves shattered by unending fear, the group fall victim to the manipulations and deadly perversions of a psychopath. Writer David Lapham, the critically acclaimed creator of Stray Bullets, returns to the universe of Crossed with a descent into evil so far beyond what you could possibly imagine. Available in three editions: as a TPB or Hardcover with new covers by series artist Raulo Caceres and also a Signed Hardcover, with a new Caceres cover, signed by writer David Lapham and limited to just 1000 copies!
