    Simone and Staggs' work togetherrivals that of even the best noir teams (Brubaker and Phillips better watch their backs). Thetwo plant plenty of seeds in this first issue, and with themystery and intrigue,Crosswind is sure to be a must-buy comic month after month. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams May 11, 2017

    As a 21-page establishing shot, this first issue does a terrific job of showcasing the massive potential of this series, and takes its time in introducing us to the two compelling leads. Beautifully illustrated and with a fresh take on a fairly worn-out trope, Crosswind is a fantastic new series from two creators working in perfect synergy, and I really cant wait to see how it plays out in particular the moment where Cason, in Junes body, meets her dick of a husband. Its gonna be glorious. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Mexi Gremillion May 11, 2017

    I would definitely recommend giving Crosswind a read. While most of the first issue is set up for the overarching plot that will occur, there are interesting scenes that entice the reader into reading more and I would say the twist in the end would make anyone wonder how everything will turn out for both of the main characters, since they are both placed in high stakes situations with very little information as to what situations theyre in and what they can do to remedy them. Its a comic that makes you want to read the second issue and a comic worth reading. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jessica Petrecz May 7, 2017

    This premiere issue of Crosswind is a sign of great things to come from Staggs and Simone. The book has style, violence, action, and a story that makes you feel uncomfortable in a good way. The pages are filled with two characters that are both easy to relate to and easy to feel sorry for. The book could have taken the easily predictable way out, with a story about a man of action finding common ground with a housewife, but instead, this story is honest, smart, and brave. This book will surely winover an audience; it demands your attentions and emotional investment from page one and will surely keep it throughout the series. Read Full Review
