Oh boy… Garth Ennis & Jacen Burrow’s Avatar Press comic CROSSED is already pretty infamous for being one of the most intense comics ever committed to page. It’s a post-Apocalyptic survival horror story about the world getting overrun by the Crossed - - infected maniacs who indulge their most vile urges because all their inhibitions have been eroded by a virus. Bleeding Cool’s gotten wise to some (probably intentional) leaks that Avatar’s put out in anticipation of Comic Con for a new sequel, CROSSED 3D, that’s coming from David Lapham (who just did the CROSSED:FAMILY VALUES one-shot) and Gianluca Pagliarani (of IGNITION CITY and WOLFSKIN.)
Here’s the official synopsis for this project, coming out in December…
When one of the last surviving human doctors gets trapped in a New York skyscraper, SWAT veteran Lt. Hunt MacAvoy assembles a rag-tag group of handymen and embarks on a rescue mission of madness - right into a city swarming with millions of homicidal maniacs! Crossed bursts into a whole new dimension of horror with this original full-color graphic novel in 3D!
Mmhm… the 3D craze that’s spreading through movie theaters like… like… well, I guess, like the Crossed virus, is now spreading into comics. A lot of people have commented that CROSSED is hard to stomach in just two dimensions, imagine how much more unsettling it’s going to be in three. == TEASER ==
I remember seeing a lot of kids walking around C2E2 with the CROSSED masks that Avatar was handing out - - printed paper that made it look like the wearer’s had the signature bloody “T” on their faces - - so it’d follow that the 3D goggles for this comic would continue that same design conceit, right? You can see for yourself up above.

You know, CROSSED is currently in development as a movie. Fans were thinking that thing would have be to rated NC-17 if it were done like the comic and I can't help thinking there'd have to be some new, even more restrictive rating if it were done in 3D, as well. Like you'd have be at least 41 to be allowed to watch it.
