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 was torn apart by the sudden strike of the infected masses.  The survivors think they have found a safe place to start over.  A place the Crossed won't find them and can be well defended.  But those are only the external threat as evil lurks in the hearts of some men and those terrors aren't as easy to see as a Crossed rash.   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.

    I'm of the opinion that in a world where the Crossed are supposed to be the enemy, the true evil is closer than you think. Maybe that's what David Lapham, the writer, is doing. Making us see true evil in a world completely engulfed in evil. The art, by Javier Barreno, is stunning. You can feel the insanity coming out of each Crossed face. Read Full Review

    In this second issue, Crossed: Family Values again exceeds the original mini-series by providing a human element that was missing from the first one. While watching the Crossed do their thing may inspire its own sick fascination, watching how things shake out with the Pratt family could be even worse. Read Full Review
