Cover: Fernando Heinz
Writer: Kieron Gillen

MR, Color, 160 pages

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.

The second arc of the Alan Moore developed Crossed future exploration comes to a powerful conclusion.

Several special themed covers continue to enrich the series:

*American History X Wraparound – Each of these will depict a specific time in the past hundred years, showing how things have changed and offering a peek at some key events. Each cover will display the year in which it takes place to help build the full picture. Art by German Erramouspe.

*Crossed Wires – The Crossed just don’t see or make things the same way a person would, these images celebrate that day-to-day madness. Art by Christian Zanier.

*Disastered – These will show how America has changed since the original Crossed outbreak. Art by Christian Zanier.

*Horrific Homage – What if the Crossed were there from the very beginning of comics? This edition will be an Homage to a great Golden Age cover. Art by Michael DiPascale.

*Wishful Fiction – The evolution of science-fiction would have been very different with the Crossed as we show you here! Art by Jacen Burrows.
