Garth Ennis has pulled out all the stops to write the most depraved and twisted book of his career, one that also may be his most poignant human drama! Crossed is Ennis' horrifically visceral exploration of the pure evil that humans are truly capable of indulging and collected here are all ten heart-stopping chapters. This gut-wrenching vision is brought to vivid (and more than a little disturbing) life by his partner in crime Jacen Burrows. 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. The Crossed collected volume is available in three editions, all with new covers by series artist Jacen Burrows.
A WORLD LIKE THIS, IT FINDS A WAY TO DAMN US ALL.
In the blink of an eye, humanity is lost. The Crossed are upon us. Men, women, and children alike fall victim to the mystery infection that makes killers out of parents and rapists out of lovers. Ruthless, berserk and evil beyond measure, these cackling demons spread their plague across the Earth --- until our species teeters on the brink of final extinction.
Now, a small of band survivors make their cautious way across a deserted America, existing in a state of constant terror, only too aware that death beyond description lurks around almost every corner. They have in common only their determination to survive --- but in the world of the Crossed, survival has a cost all its own. By story's end, each will discover exactly what they'll do to stay alive... and, in a world of monsters, just how easy it is to become inhuman too.
There is no hope. There are no heroes. No one is coming to save you.
THERE IS ONLY THE CROSSED.
Extreme horror by writer Garth Ennis (Streets of Glory, The Boys, Preacher) and artist Jacen Burrows (Chronicles of Wormwood, Neonomicon, 303).
