The fourth annual Crossed Day is going to be April 15th (Tax day here in the U.S.). And for the first time the event will be centered on a writer other than the series creator Garth Ennis. Uber writer Kieron Gillen scripts Crossed: Badlands #75 which will be hitting stores that day.
The new story arc "Homo Tortor" takes readers to a point in history where the human race nearly slipped into extinction and uncovers what role the vile plague played in that event. Gillen is no stranger to apocalyptic horror as his work on Uber has won numerous accolades ,revolutionized the alternate history genre, and redefined the concept of super soldiers.
What is Crossed Day? Avatar Press designates one Wednesday a year to all things Crossed. Comic shops encourage rabid fans to don their Crossed cosplay costumes and come in for parties and photos. Avatar Press and Bleeding Cool will be promoting stores and fans participating in the cosplay events by running their pictures online and in social media for everyone to see.
