Imagine everything you thought was fantasy...was real. And now join us, in a world where reality is dead…and anything is possible...
I’ve had this book on my radar since its announcement and I can admit what lured me to it at the beginning was the incredible creator team on this which are personal favourites of mine.
So when I sat to read my advance copy of Crossover #1 I thought I knew what type of story to anticipate, the big event, new blockbuster title, I knew this was going to be a good read, I knew this was going to be a good if not great comic.
What I didn’t see coming was how much this book hit on a personal level straight off from the first issue and by that i don’t mean me personally I mean all of us. All of us comic book readers that got our first issue and taste of Spider-Man, Spawn, Batman or Judge Dredd etc and became smitten, whether that be at a young age and carried right through to adulthood or discovering comics at a later stage of your life and feeling like society gazes at you with a judgement as if to dictate what you’re doing is strange or wrong. Admit it or not we’ve all felt like this at some stage throughout our comic filled way of life or hobby to some.
I would love to go into more detail about how this book captures and brought those emotions put on me but that will have to wait to the full review!
Geoff Shaw combined with Dee Cunniffe is remarkable formula treating readers to absolute stunning visuals in the interiors. The book allows the team to create some of the most eccentric styles I’ve seen yet! Again more of that I can go into detail on in a later date!
Donny Cates and his team have created a concept that whilst you think sound or feels somewhat familiar it is anything but, the more you read you experience how unique this title is, as soon as you finish it begs for a second read through even for the many references alone! That along with many teased reveals to come would leave any superhero fan begging for that next issue!
I now completely understand why Image, the creative team and many big-name writers and artists are pushing and raving about this title constantly. What Donny Cates, Geoff Shaw, Dee Cunniffe, and John J Hill have created with this comic is phenomenal, genre-changing and arguably nothing short of perfection!
