For Garth Ennis fans, Crossed, will not disappoint. It's everything one would expect his zombie storyline to be. But for anyone else (especially those with taste, morals, and the slightest sense of decency), please move on to the next book—this is not for you. Seriously, this is the most disgusting zombie story you'll every read. These things are worse than zombies. They're like John Wayne Gacy zombies—and they're winning. I'm not kidding. Don't open this book. If you complain to management, I'll get in trouble. - Kyle— From Graphic Novels (page 1)
- 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.
- 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.
