"C-Day" Event Contestants – A Global Outbreak of Crossed Parties

The Avatar Press celebration of all things Crossed, known for short as "C-Day," is only two days away! March 14th sees the in-store release of Crossed: Badlands #1 by Garth Ennis and Jacen Burrows, as well as the third volume in the Crossed graphic novel series: Psychopath, by David Lapham and Raulo Caceres. Extending beyond print, C-Day also sees the launch of Si Spurrier and Javier Barreno's brand new Crossed weekly webcomic, Wish You Were Here, which can be found at CrossedComic.com. All in all, it's a big day, with hundreds of comic shops worldwide celebrating the launch in a variety of different ways.

A few weeks ago, Bleeding Cool announced a retailer contest for C-Day. Those retailers who enrolled will be submitting photos and/or video of the big in-store events they are planning: Crossed costume contests, art competitions, delicious Crossed-themed baked goods, eye-catching and often gore-tastic decorations, and any number of other super-cool promotional efforts. We'll be sharing these visions of carnage here at BleedingCool.com, so prepare yourself for some wild antics!

Our list of contestants are below! If you're a horror fan and live in the vicinity of these comic shops, make sure to swing by and see the Crossed madness unfold! And if you're feeling it, don some animal pelts, slap on some red face paint, and join in on the fun!
