4.0 out of 5 stars Crossed Volume 2: Family Values, 29 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crossed Volume 2: Family Values (Paperback)
Without delving into the plot too much, this book is a solid, if unremarkable follow up to the first Crossed collected volume. The loss of Ennis is a bit of a double-edged sword. While there's much less material that shocks for the sake of shocking, it does feel a bit 'Crossed-lite' as a consequence. Don't get me wrong, there are still some challenging themes, but they are perhaps dealt with in a slightly more compassionate manner compared to Ennis' work.

The original Crossed divided opinion amongst my friends, who wouldn't usually bat an eyelid at Preacher or The Boys, for its rather extreme content. I didn't share their objections, though Crossed is an acquired taste. The story is a little more obvious, much less original and suffers accordingly. That said, it's definitely worth a punt, especially for Ennis fans who are looking for a different take on what is a very interesting concept.
