Crossed is Garth Ennis' horrifically visceral exploration of the pure evil that humans are truly capable of indulging. 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.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Aug 10, 2008

    Maybe I was too softened by making my last Ennis reading the one of Dan Dare – a book that's sophisticated, perfectly scripted, and oddly tame (when compared to the usual Ennis fare). Either way, the visuals here are nightmarish and the story will make your hands weak. I'm not sure if I'll be back for another issue, but if I do come back it's only because I'm a glutton for punishment (or my curiosity will get the best of me). If you're thinking of giving Crossed a try, consider yourself warned. I know a dollar comic is awfully enticing, but do tread lightly. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Matthew McLean Aug 7, 2008

    As much as I enjoy a short read at a reduced price Crossed just doesn't offer up enough of a hook to make this story stand out from the zombie/berserker/infected crowd. Pass on it and wait for #1. Read Full Review
