Last week I had a little extra cash and was looking for something to read. In my local comic shop I was pointed to Crossed when I requested something Ennis (he hasn't disappointed me yet.) I wasn't looking for a new series so the idea of each arc being entirely stand alone appealed to me too. When I went to the counter I was warned that this was a horribly violent book but I just figured the guy thought I was new to Ennis' work. Boy was I wrong. I can honestly say I found it hard to stomach but I was enjoying the writing and the characters so I pushed on.
Now I'm done and I'm kind of intrigued about the rest of the series. But the violence was a little much for me. So now I'm finally at the question I need answered. Does David Lapham write it well enough that the violence is worth it. Like I found with Ennis.
