Crossed 4 (March 2009)

It’s a… no pun intended… bridge issue (the final scene takes place on a bridge, I love how Ennis doesn’t spend time doing cliffhangers on Crossed, he always takes it a page or two beyond the cliffhanger). He uses this issue to pause and expand on a few things.

First, the woman responds to the narrator’s crush on her (I’m not sure I know the narrator’s name, I think he has one; it’s not important). It doesn’t go particularly well for the narrator and it’s interesting to see how Ennis has removed the typical relationship developments from an end of the world story.

Second, there’s more on how the Crossed are evolving. It’s more of a standard, zombie movie moment, since it’s all about the series’s mythology. Makes for some nasty scenes though.

Like I said, I’m so burnt, it’ll be hard for Crossed to shock me at this point.
