Nothing is sacred as Crossed returns!  The biggest hit horror series of the year returns with an all-new six-issue series written by David (Stray Bullets) Lapham!  Set right at the start of the Crossed outbreak, this epic tale of depravity promises to shock and disturb you with even more intensity than the first series!  The Pratt family lived a idyllic life on a horse ranch in North Carolina.  A few generations of family working, living, and learning together.  But not all things should be shared with, nor done to, other human beings.  Much less your own family.  Some men are just born evil, some men are turned Crossed.  But which is worse?   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.  Crossed: Family Values #1 is available with a Regular cover by Jacen Burrows, a Wraparound cover by series artist Javier Barreno, a Torture cover by Juan Jose Ryp, and a special rare Red Crossed retailer incentive.

    So what do I think of this book? Well as a huge fan of Kirkman's The Walking Dead and the original Crossed series from Avatar, I can honestly say I like this book. What can we say about David Lapham, the writer? The man is insane. I am pretty confident that there is some disturbance in his past that he is venting through his writing. Its bad enough to have psycho sex obsessed sadists after you, now add a rapists controlling father to the mix. The plot so far is not too intricate. No surprises or twists. The art, drawn by Javier Barreno, is excellent. Lots of gore, violence, and decapitations, as is common in Crossed books. I feel that we have barely seen the tip of the iceberg when it comes to dad's depravity. I'm pretty sure its going to get a lot worse. The foreshadowing at the end of issue one makes me quite certain of it. The covers are all beautiful and very violent. Overall a great book. I can't wait till next issue. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it. Read Full Review

    Crossed: Family Values seems to have everything the original had and quite a few things that it didn't. If you were a fan of the original or Romero's The Crazies then you should definitely check it out. Read Full Review
