Synopses & Reviews
A new chapter in Garth Ennis’ seminal creation – Crossed. The runaway success web comic (CrossedComic.com) featuring an island of uninfected people trying to survive in a world overrun by psychopaths (think The Walking Dead meets Texas Chainsaw Massacre)!
Manipulation, deceit, and petty politics rule the plague survivors living off the Scottish coast and pretending their isolated island is safe from the Crossed. But every day brings them closer to a horrible reckoning and the truth behind Shaky’s past begins to reveal his hidden nature. Now the island dreamers have met up with a society living upon a floating city of derelict boats. But the feeling that something very bad is about to happen is palpable. And the survivors must decide if they should trust in their new allies or treat the uninfected with as much caution as the insane Crossed maniacs. This is the story of the search for meaning in in a world filled with homicidal lunatics. There is no help. There is no hope. There’s only the Crossed. Collects the third chapter of the runaway hit webcomic from www.crossedcomic.com.
