This review is from: Crossed Volume 1 (Paperback)
This is awful. It made me feel physically sick looking at this. It's vile and nasty and is ten steps backwards for the graphic novel as a storytelling medium to be taken seriously. The story is nothing new really and the artwork doesn't break new ground either. If you consider yourself intelligent, don't buy this. Get The Walking Dead instead. You'll feel so much better.

You should probably make your review sound a bit more like a review next time, now you just sound like a troll. You haven't mentioned anything that's actually in it to make you not like it. You sound like you've never even gone near the book and are just a Walking Dead fan trying to make people buy it :P

Ooh, "but what about the children?". Pointless criticism. This is NOT meant for kids: end of! Kids can easily get hold of a lot of media that are not meant for them. Parental responsibility shouldn't be lax just because it's a graphic novel. Or a video game. Or anything for that matter. Kids have access to all manner of stuff 'via the internet'. Are you demonising all online data because of adult stupidity? The very fact that the writer of 'Preacher' and 'The Boys' is attached to this should give fair warning, and if the name Garth Ennis is unknown to prospective readers, then the onus is on them to research before purchasing. Would you give the same warning to readers of 'books without pictures'? Don't let your kids read Stephen King or HP Lovecraft or even Stieg Larsson for that matter for fear it may feck them up? No, because that'd be idiotic. Again, just because pictures are involved DOES NOT make it for kids. Sheesh!

I never mentioned 'kids' once.

I am offering a comparison to another apocalyptic horror story, one that successfully manages to convey something more than the blood, guts and excessive violence that the creators of 'Crossed' are overly reliant on.
And I mentioned the simple story and the basic artwork as specific criticisms. You must have missed that sentence.

My reply wasn't to your review; it was to the reply by 'Eskimo'.
