Crossed: Dead Or Alive – The New Webcomic, Print Comic, And Film Webisode Project From Garth Ennis

It’s been a full week of CROSSED festivities so far — which may or may not include the election of the new Pope, according to my twitter stream — and we’re not done just yet. Here’s the word from Avatar’s William Christensen on an ambitious new live action film, webcomic, and print comic project from Garth Ennis called Crossed: Dead Or Alive:

An open letter to Crossed fans from William Christensen, publisher of Avatar Press:

Crossed: Dead or Alive is the title of the upcoming live action filmed webisodes that will be written and directed by Garth Ennis. DOA will also have Ennis penned tie-in web comics that will expand and further develop the concepts of the film series and characters. We will be using the strengths of each medium to work together in creating a Crossed multi-platform program which is 100% Garth’s vision. The web comics will be unique original works that together (with the webisodes) tell a richer and more complete tale of the characters and concepts introduced. We hope it will deliver the terror of Crossed in a whole new way and allows Garth the complete control of the filmed material to really deliver his true vision of horror.

This Spring, Avatar will be running a fund-raiser to help get this off the ground, and we’ll be doing it all ourselves to make sure Garth Ennis has total creative control. Right now, you can go to crossedcomic.com, where we have the weekly Crossed: Wish You Were Here original webcomic running, to sign up for the Crossed: Dead or Alive project list — or just follow Crossed on twitter, facebook, or google plus. Everyone on the list will get updates and special insight to the program and will be the first to find out when all the pledge categories are live and all the creepy goodies listed. Once they are, Garth’s web comics will begin running on the site as a thank you to the fans that graciously lend their support to getting Crossed on film! With the help of Crossed Nation fans our goal is to raise enough money to film all Crossed: Dead or Alive season 1 episodes in early 2014. You’ll be hearing a lot more about this in the coming months and I thank you one and all for making Crossed such a smash hit.
