    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 29, 2017

    The real magic of Image Comics comes when talented creators are able to deliver a story that you wouldn't be able to find anywhere else, and this book's premise, while containing that fantastic element of the mind-swap, wouldn't fly in a shared universe or a superhero world. But on its own, it makes for a riveting comic-book, one that I highly recommend on all levels. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Jul 25, 2017

    'Crosswind' takes the body-switch trope to new heights with a satisfying second issue that builds directly on the first with a mysterious new player pulling the strings. Meanwhile, Cason and Juniper are forced to step up in their new bodies with a lot riding for each of them. Cat Staggs wows with her unique art style that is fully in sync with Gail Simone's hard boiled script. 'Crosswind' is a bonafide bloody good time.  Read Full Review

    Crosswind #2 is a funny and entertaining issue. It does more enough to lead the reader gracefully into the next issue, placing our characters into situations with actual consequences.
