Media Release — Preacher and The Boys creator Garth Ennis returns to his signature horror series, Crossed to celebrate the fiftieth issue with an original “patient zero” story arc. Five years ago Ennis changed the landscape of horror comics with a new series that pushed the boundaries of grueling horror beyond anything previously seen. In the pages of Crossed he populated the world with maniacal killers that live only to perpetrate the worst atrocities possible upon the uninfected. This recipe is not for the faint of heart as each subsequent issue of the series visits a world where survival most likely means a sadistic death by torture is in your future. Crossed: Badlands is the ongoing bi-weekly series which gives other handpicked creators an opportunity to tell tales of misery in Ennis’ unique world. Now in celebration of the landmark fiftieth issue of the series, Garth Ennis will reveal some clues about the origin of the Crossed virus. Fans of extreme horror will have a special treat in the pages of “The Thin Red Line” arc which premieres on “C-Day,” March 26th in comic shops worldwide.
