    Far better than expected.The two awful volumes after Garth Ennis first one made me quit this ultra gory disturbing extreme horror series, luckly the good reviews online made me give a try to this excellent spin off.I really enjoyed a lot the storyline, the characters, the twists and the 28 Days Later The Walking Dead vibe.Prove that sick ultra violent not for faint heart readers comics can be really good too with well written main characters and storylines.Better than the original one A Far better than expected.The two awful volumes after Garth Ennis first one made me quit this ultra gory disturbing extreme horror series, luckly the good reviews online made me give a try to this excellent spin off.I really enjoyed a lot the storyline, the characters, the twists and the 28 Days Later The Walking Dead vibe.Prove that sick ultra violent not for faint heart readers comics can be really good too with well written main characters and storylines.Better than the original one And Jackson is just Willie the groundkeeper from The Simpsons XD

    read this on the weekly web releases Starts out better than I expected The last Crossed work that wasn t written by Garth Ennis was just awful, and I expected this to be just as bad Pleasantly surprised I was then to find out that this was at least solid narrative, and it jumped right into the action without having to draw out a whole lot of exposition on what came before Bravo for writing lesson number one in sequels A few chapters in i wrote I m not convinced it ll be nearly as mind bl read this on the weekly web releases Starts out better than I expected The last Crossed work that wasn t written by Garth Ennis was just awful, and I expected this to be just as bad Pleasantly surprised I was then to find out that this was at least solid narrative, and it jumped right into the action without having to draw out a whole lot of exposition on what came before Bravo for writing lesson number one in sequels A few chapters in i wrote I m not convinced it ll be nearly as mind blowing as the original story, unless Spurrier comes up with some original insights into the human condition in this case, groups of strangers thrown into adverse circumstances and forced to work as a team, even though we can clearly see the fracture lines and stresses at work in this group He s definitely setting the stage with a few hints of conflicts to come, just as Kirkman did with Walking Dead.The gore and nastiness would be pretty crushing if it just kept coming at us page after page, but thankfully Spurrier gives us some relief with the mundanity of day to day life He s also teasing out the flashbacks to fill in a little of how it went down for our protagonist in the early days, which I always seem to enjoy.The setting is rather helpful in preserving a narrative that keeps me coming back too the simple fact of how isolated the group is on that remote island means that there s plenty of natural space to slow down, watch the occasional encounter, and examine each weirdo one by one.This comic is a damned sight better than anything Kirkman shat out The characters areinteresting, the emotional weight of the twists is earned , and even the art as hurriedly done weekly webcomic as it is still kicks the shit out of that scratchy garble.Spurrier isn t a poet exactly but he sure knows how to write a protagonist Most everyone else except the leaders are pretty close to forgettable in their sparseness, but Shakey is relatable and the opposite of almost every zombie story hero Awesome

    This series is a little different than the regular Crossed series as we will get to follow one group for a longer story than we ever have before Also, it s a breath of fresh air because while the group is still flawed, we finally have some decent people to focus on that haven t just turned into homicidal rapists at the drop of a hat Bear in mind I m talking about the uninfected here So we have a varied group that has gathered on a remote Scottish Island in an attempt to survive, with thought This series is a little different than the regular Crossed series as we will get to follow one group for a longer story than we ever have before Also, it s a breath of fresh air because while the group is still flawed, we finally have some decent people to focus on that haven t just turned into homicidal rapists at the drop of a hat Bear in mind I m talking about the uninfected here So we have a varied group that has gathered on a remote Scottish Island in an attempt to survive, with thoughts not going much beyond surviving from day to day for now The cast is very diverse, and the story focuseson the interaction of the group itself rather than fighting the Crossed, which once again is a nice change of pace.The art in this series has always been well done, and this volume is no different.I like the idea of following a group for a longer period of time than usual, so looking forward to see where this goes
