Leading on from last week's reveal of Alan Moore and Gabriel Andrade on a six issue arc of Crossed set 100 years in the future from the Crossed outbreak, and fully scripted as well as cover-designed by Moore, we revealed a wide swath of variant covers and options for the December release of the comic. But where would we be without obsessive collecting, especially when it comes to new works by Alan Moore. And this does mark Moore's landmark decision to create a series within a friend's universe by taking up Garth Ennis' Crossed. It also marks a turn toward what Moore views as science fiction in the Crossed universe with Crossed +100.
Without further ado, Avatar Press have prepared with careful oversight two ways in which to make a top notch contribution to your pristine collections, firstly a boxed set containing all the covers to #1 of Crossed plus a shocking array of extras include a copy of the "Taste Test" SIGNED by Alan Moore , and secondly, a set that includes CGC editions of #1 and also of the "Taste Test" preview comic that contains sketches from Andrade, two essays by Moore and samples from his script for Issue #1 of Crossed +100.
First up, we have the "Deluxe Collector Box Set" with full covers, a comic signed by Moore and much more:
