What a massive failure this was.
 
A wise person (aka David St. Hubbins of Spinal Tap), once said, “There’s a fine line between stupid and, uh….clever.” Well this book crossed over that line, kept moving passed worthless, and ended up pitching tent in the middle of SUCKville. This book’s only redeeming quality is that it reiterated to me how wonderful a writer Garth Ennis is, as his presen

Crossed is amazing!!!!

Volume One I mean...as in what Garth Ennis wrote.

Crossed is not your normal gorefest of a comic. Yes, it is popular for showing panels that sicken and horrify readers, but what writer Garth Ennis managed to capture with his words in Volume One was the depravity and viciousness of the Crossed. We not only feared them, but we feared what they represented.

Volume Two...not so much.

I loved what David Lapham was going for with his words - the idea that some humans are just born e

I kinda thought the story would proceed with the same characters, but this one has an entirely new set.

A suitably vicious story, but confusing timeline and interchangeable characters that were dead then they weren't then they were pregnant and then they weren't. And they were the protagonist's sister? Or mother? Or dad, or brother? Dead, alive, in the past, in the present? I was totally lost.

But you don't come to "Crossed" for story. The strength of this series is its absolute brutality and I wo

Gross. Very.
I had trouble with the rating, because it really creeped me out in the worst way and I kinda hate it, but then again, that's what it's meant to do. And it is a page-turner.
My own personal rating would be two stars, but considering the intentions of the story, genre and everything, it does deserve more than that.
I almost gave four stars - maybe it would deserve them. I think my judgment might be clouded here.
Seriously though, I will definately never read it again and hopefully forget

There is this place where god-awful and amazing intersect.
When you are 100% aware that stuff is cheesy and campy, but you are still having fun and it's kind of amazing.
Think...From Dusk Till Dawn.
Or Tremors.
I am guilty of having soft spot for these which is why Garth Ennis totally works for me.
The thing is, that's a veeery thin line of awesome and story can easily go in wrong direction.
This is exactly what happened with Crossed in Vol.2.
Vol. 1 had this perfect balance of ridiculous depravity t

I LOVE Crossed ... when I first read it, after I remember thinking 'what the hell did I just read? Ha! Love it.

I'm not sure I understand the vitriol directed at this sequel to Garth Ennis' original Crossed, not when it's essentially more of the same. Sure Family Values ups the ante by making the major characters part of a large family so when those infected with the Crossed virus(?) inevitably find them, rape, murder, mutilation and incest follow. Actually, the incest was already there as revealed in the opening few pages of the first issue ...

As abhorrent and sickening as incest (and rape, mutilation an

Man, this series is just the grossest, most insane thing I've ever read. So messed up but my twisted mind cant stop looking at it. Recommended to no one. Seriously.

David Lapham takes the recipe from Garth Ennis and takes it to a new level, adding incest, a lot more sex, or rape, really, and gangs of hundreds or even thousands of crossed. A family is chased from their home when the crossed attack in large numbers. Most of them escape and relocate to another area where they start to rebuild and call home, but the conflicts from before, coming mainly from the father's incestuous tendencies, break the family apart.

The extra covers for this miniseries are outri

Sick, twisted & raw. Anyone who can't handle extreme images of violence and depravity should give this a wide berth. But then again you probably never made it through volume 1. The story here deals with a family and how they deal with the sickest parts of the world, before & after the Crossed.

I won't lie; there are images here you will never, ever, be able to unsee. However, the story is intriguing, if not a little repetitive. (Anyone thinking that a story like this won't have the famil

Ok, first of all, I don't know what to think about this vol., it have some good ideas, like the first story arc, for example, with the patriach christian father that rape his daughters (even without he being crossed).

The second story arc, is not that good and is only violence, gore-porn, and snuff graphics without a message. Yes, the art is amazing, some scenes very shocking, but, it lacks something ... it lacks deepness, something to say.

If you liked the first vol. of Crossed (written by Gart

Loved it, It's just so much fun. Reminds me of those straight to DVD horror sequels that completely ignores everything that made the first one so good and instead just relies on tons of gore and shock value.

Crossed is like Walking Dead on steroids. I liked Garth Ennis's volume more, although this definitely took things up a notch in the depravity department.

That being said, that essentially is what the genre entails, so the author did a good job. Just wanted to give a heads up. To the fai

What do you do if your own family becomes zombies? What if, instead of dead rising zombies, they become homicidal maniacs bent on perverting all the laws of gods and men?

This volume takes the Crossed world and makes it personal - probably too personal. Again, the problem with this series is how far the writers and artists are willing to take things.

[This is wasted space I am putting in here so that the next part does not show up on my Facebook feed. Ignore this.]

I have to say, if you're not down with watching graphic depictions of all sorts of atrocities, don't read this book. Seriously, go find anything else. This particular volume depicts rape, incest, child deaths, and too many other things to mention. It's not the most absolutely graphic stuff you'll find in this vein, but it's fairly disturbing. Since so many of these volumes can be read as stand-alone reads, it's reasonable to expect that this might be someone's first foray into this series.

I read volume this because I actually enjoyed the mild depravation of the first, even if I knew this one wasn't either related to the first story OR written by Garth Ennis. If you can read through, the story isn't as attractive as the first, and if you haven't read the first then this is a very weird volume to start with. But if you're into really explicit stuff, no censor at all and redefined versions of "good" or "evil" , then this may be for you. If you have no expectations, you'll still be s ...more
Christopher Reynolds
The first one by Garth Ennis was good. In the hands of a less-skilled writer like Lapham we see how the concept can easily go badly wrong. It's a pity because the set-up was a good concept. The first issue sets up a dilemma: what do you do when the person who can save you from the implacable unnatural evil of the Crossed is himself a very human sort of evil? This dilemma quickly gets pushed by the wayside as the book just goes for gross-out scenes with a slim plot and very little characterisatio ...more

Well, despite my mediocre experience with volume 1, here I am having read volume 2. Once again to kill time and because it was made readily available to me by a friend.

Like it's predecessor, Family Values opens up with the outbreak but this time follows a very different group of survivors. The Pratt Family, a bunch of North Carolina ranchers headed by a daughter-molesting patriarch who believes that the Crossed are something out of a Cormac McCarthy-esque doomsday scenario. The story chronicles

I think this second volume of the Crossed series have a better plot than Volume 1, but...not so better...

Like the volume 1, sometimes you feel that you don't really know the characters, because they don't spend time telling us about them...

For example, in crossed volume 1 you read all the book without know much things about the characters, they just show few dialogues where they talk about themselves.

In the second volume they improved that (maybe because it's another writer), but wasn't a huge i

I'm a pretty big fan of the franchise in general, and I'm delighted that this sack of crap didn't kill it off. It's all of the series' worst impulses (gratuitous shock piled atop itself until it becomes schlock, mealy-mouthed platitudes about Who The Real Monsters Are and Is Life Worth It If You Have Nothing To Live For) rolled into one. The whole incest thing gets tiresome extremely quickly, and while there's one good, stomach-churning gag involving a reverse return to the womb (even this, thou ...more

I read this volume awhile back and recently picked up 3 so I decided to re-read number 2.

I love gore and violence and when it's absurdly over the top I find it amusing. Can't really take this series seriously because it is so grotesque. However it doesn't really detract from the story. It's vile, bloodthirsty and a strangely enjoyable read. I look forward to visiting the crossed universe again in volume 3.

Unlike other apocalypse series, Crossed doesn't really carry on from volume to volume it in

Curious. It isn't a continuation from the first volume, which I think is an interesting format to adopt. I guess each of these volumes are going to be individual short stories. Random spontaneous speculation aside, I liked it but I didn't love it; I thought the writing was especially slacking. However I can be quite picky when it comes to writing thangs; though I really did think this was especially lacking. I found a lot of the characterization to be pretty silly and unbelievable.

The writing was awkward and the overall story arc wasn't very interesting. They just aimed to disturb by turning family members against each other in horrific and perverted scenarios. Basically it was to show how the protagonist would survive at any cost, even killing her rapist father, mother, friends and letting siblings die so she could escape the Crossed. But it was difficult to care. Plus the story telling did not flow well. It seemed jumpy, mainly because the panels did not flow into each ...more
Christian Oberhofer
This could have been a great extension of Ennis' original idea and the whole concept of this deranged family of religious zealots in a a world of deranged psychopaths really had potential. Unfortunately they decided to add a whole lot of incest, pedohilia and senseles violence to Ennis' already messed up, sick story which ruins it for the most part. Another factor that really drags this book down is the messy artwork, most panels are simply awful to look at and lack detail, and the least bit of ...more

I loved the first volume, and was excited that the second volume had come out. But as I got into this one, I just wasn't enjoying it as much. Then I realized that it was because Garth Ennis hadn't written it. This was ok, but just didn't have the same excitement as the first volume. The focus is on a Mormon family and how they react to the Crossed, but at times it seemed to be making fun of the Mormon church. And I really feel like there was no solid resolution of the plot by the end of the book ...more

I read the first Crossed volume and loved it.

I'm a big apocalypse/zombie fan but this one was too much for me. I was trying to read it on my tablet on the train and I was hiding the screen from the person sitting next to me. Not a good sign.

If someone ever asks me what torture-porn looks like - well now I know. The artwork in this is like a vision from hell. Dante would have been impressed or shocked, I'm not sure which.
