    Another top notch issue in what is shaping up to be a spectacular series. Continues to excel due complete artistic control by to scarily talented peeps and no attempts to sanitize, broaden the appeal, or dumb down the material. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Aug 30, 2017

    Crosswind continues to be one entertaining book. The script offers up a fresh twist on the old body-swapping story. The artwork is simply amazing. This book should be on the short-list for every graphic novel award in existence. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - L.E.H. Light Aug 31, 2017

    One of the tricks of this book is that both of the trails of the plot end up with Juniper's liberation. Juniper in Cason's body is finally being treated well. Juniper's body, with Cason driving, if finally handing out satisfying vengeance. I'm sure the story won't remain this twisted fairy tale for long, let's see where the Simone/Skaggs team takes us next month. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Aug 30, 2017

    This is the most satisfying issue of the series yet, expanding the scope of the story, which got me excited for the future. According to the November solicitations, the sixth issue is the final issue, so we're at the halfway point here. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Aug 31, 2017

    Simone and Staggs are making one hell of an entertaining comic that preys on our most primal instincts. They challenge our moral makeup as to what constitutes justice and decorum if the shoe was on the other foot. 'Crosswind' meets our need within ourselves to fight back, beat the bully, face our fears, and become our true selves. It's freedom as subtext in one ballsy package. Pick up 'Crosswind' and feed your darker impulses.  Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Daniel Vlasaty Aug 30, 2017

    Crosswind is an interesting book. I'm digging it. I am, however, slightly afraid that it won't hold up over subsequent issues. I'm not sure though. It just might. Hopefully. Another thing I'll keep my fingers crossed for is that they bring in someone different to color the book. Because that's a real buzzkill. I honestly would have rated this issue at a 4 or maybe ever a 5 if it weren't for the coloring. I don't know. Read Full Review

    When I first read about this series, and it said it's "Freaky Friday" meets "Goodfella's" I was all in! I have not been dissapointed at all so far the 1st 3 issues have been excellent, and with a team like Gail Simone and Catt Staggs you can't go wrong from the art to the writing it all goes perfect together! I highly recommend this book it is has a mob guy and mob violence obviously,and to your lovely housewife who gets treated like crap by her husband and her step son. Things change when these 2 switch bodies. Go pick it up! It's not like anything on the shelves! 1 of the "best books of 2017" from the "Comic Guru"
