You never know who is going to pop up in Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw's Crossover series from Image Comics, telling the story of a normal, everyday, world-outside-your-window reality that gets invaded by a comic book event, causing death, destruction, and hatred of superhero comic books. The first arc, titled "Kids Love Chains" was a reference to Todd McFarlane and his explained appeal of Spawn. The second arc, launching in July, is dubbed "Meanwhile", the word that often comes before the Crossover ellipsis icon in comic book captions, as well as being the DC editorial column written for years by DC VPO and EIC, Dick Giordano.
The new Crossover arc promises new characters joining the series, teasing IP from other comic book creators. And continues to include The Paybacks and Madman. And more to come.
