Crossed C-Day 2013 is here! Crossed creator Garth Ennis returns to his stark vision of horror for a four part tale that pits a group of war hardened soldiers on a quest to wipe out the Crossed and reclaim Britain. In "The Fatal Englishman," these warriors stop running and take the fight to the enemy! There is no hope. There is no cure. There is only the Crossed.

    Ennis (and Spurrier) bring out the human drama of the premise and so that is why his return to the series is a very welcome one. The art by Raulo Caceres is typical Avatar Press fare, with that unnervingly greasy look that the imprint sems to enjoy, but his art is expressive and that is where it earns its keep. It adds in the extra layer of character bits that brings Ennis' writing straight on home. It's hard being a Crossed fan because not every thing the series has to offer is like this - by which I mean "of substance" - but when it does happen it makes it all worth it... metaphorically of course.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 15, 2013

    This issue really hits the meat of what I hoped and expected Crossed would be about five years ago: The lives of semi-normal people in completely abnormal circumstances. While the shock factor is there, most of the gore is left on the covers, something for which I'm thankful. The quirky trademark Ennis tough-guy squad is fun, and the fact that there are still children still alive in this world kind of fills me with hope. Crossed - Badlands #25 is a good story, well-drawn, and given the world the creators are playing in, a relatively serene episode of horror, earning 3 out of 5 stars overall. I can't say that I'll read this book every month (I also occasionally pick up "My Little Pony" and "Archie," and don't want to be on the list that buying all those books together would put me on) but I don't regret reading this issue, save for the disgustingly organic and gorny close-up of that primary cover.
