Wednesday March 26th, Garth Ennis’ legions of Crossed fans will flock to local comic book shops and book stores to celebrate the third annual C-Day. Avatar Press, publisher of extreme horror comics, designates one Wednesday a year in March to all things Crossed. Now comic shops worldwide encourage rabid fans to don their Crossed cosplay costumes and come in for parties, photos, and an opportunity to become a new reader ambassador for the comic series that redefined grueling horror.
The event is centered on the return of Garth Ennis to the bi-weekly series Crossed: Badlands beginning with the milestone issue #50 which arrives on C-Day. The new six issue story arc “The Thin Red Line” takes readers back to the early days of the Crossed infection, when there were more questions than answers about what was happening and how this insanity was spreading so quickly across the globe. Ennis, the creator of Preacher and The Boys, calls this arc a “Patient Zero” tale in which some of the secrets of the infection are addressed. For the first time in Crossed’s six year history the promise of some peek behind the curtains has many fans foaming at the mouth to read the new chapter.
Avatar Press and www.bleedingcool.com will be promoting stores and fans participating in the cosplay events by running their pictures online and in social media for everyone to see. All we ask is that everyone keep the event in perspective, have fun, and be safe. Crossed is extreme horror fiction that allows you to step into the most frightening scenario ever published. But in the real world we want to encourage everyone to be responsible and courteous to non-readers and families also enjoying their visit to the comic book shop.
