NYCC 2014: Kieron Gillen Announced Returning To Crossed From Avatar Press At #75(UPDATE)

William Christensen announced Kieron Gillen will be returning to Crossed with #75 onward and they are "thrilled to have him aboard". Normally every 25 issues, Garth Ennis returns, but now Ennis will be doing a double-long arc starting with #100. It will be a sequel to "Fatal Englishman" and completes a "trilogy". It's the first time Ennis has felt that he has legitimately gone "too far" with this arc called "Once a Warrior King".


Gillen's book is going to move further into the past in relationship to Moore's comic that moves further into the future. Kieron Gillen joined the panel to talk about the history of human population in history, and how few breeding pairs have been present at certain points to keep the species going. Gillen postulates a Crossed story wherein there have been plagues far back in human history that have nearly wiped out the population, and that a Crossed outbreak may have been responsible. His story will move between events 70,000 years ago and a more current time researching this possibility.

There will be "giant" flora and fauna, ie: dinosaurs in this comic, to all accounts and teases.
