BONUS REVIEW Crossed Volume 7 – Christos Gage & David Lapham

Crossed 7A pair of stories focus on one of the great themes of Crossed – what would you do to survive. Would you make a deal with the Crossed or murder your friends to save your own skin?

Newcomer to the franchise Christos Gage tells a great tale injecting a few snippets of his trademark social commentary. The Crossed are fleshed out a little more and a Crossed character is introduced that could make a return appearance.

Lapham has been telling the same story over again and thanks to the law of monkeys and typewriters he finally does a reasonable job of it. Regular character Amanda returns and we see mental illness and paranoia actually done right. This is what Crossed: Psychopath should have been. Better late than never possibly.

The art is great. Crossed has established a style and visiting artists have no problem slotting right in. The colours for the first story are particularly good proving you don’t need gimmicks to please the eye. There is also lot of graphic nudity and sex. As it seems we have become inured to the violence this is what has been taking its place.

Thumbs Up!
