    When a mega comic book event crossover manifests in our universe, what happens? Years later, we see the fallout as we are introduced to the main character. She is a survivor of the Crossover and now owns the last "real" comic book shop in the country. Superhero comics were burned in the aftermath, Marvel and DC went out of business, and her shop is the only one still carrying them. It's an interesting take on the premise and I'm certainly intrigued. When a mega comic book event crossover manifests in our universe, what happens?

    What happens when a mega crossover event from comics happens in our world.Thousands upon thousands dead, cities leveled, and destruction like no other. This is a story about hope, above love, about acceptances as another comic character enters our world and the unfounded hate towards them begins. A interesting first issue, a little on the nose at times, but well worth reading. A 4 out of 5.

    I grabbed this comic simply because Cates wrote it. I figured, I’ve liked most of his stuff so let’s give it a try. Had no idea what it was about. Well, it’s pretty damn good. An event happens in a city and that city is surrounded by a bubble. Some people escape before hand. So now we are in the aftermath. Cates does some real cool things with the idea of comic books. Some things go down in here that really got me invested in where this story is going. Looking forward to the rest of this series.

    Fictional characters and real ones in the same room? What is this, a crossover episode? Yup. A celkom dobre to začalo. Donny si zas píše niečo, čo spraví radosť hlavne jemu a dúfa, že to chytí aj nejedného komiksového nadšenca. Kresba vyzerá pekne, celé to je krásne farebné a naozaj ma zaujíma kam sa bude ďalej uberať.

    Catesův další fanboyovský zářez. Popravdě jsem ani nečekal, že to bude tak strašně dobrý. Pokud se vyznáte v superhrdinech budete si rochnit protože Donník referencemi nešetří. Zároveň si to užije i člověk který ocení kvalitní a dobře zpracovaný komiks. Na první číslo se toho stalo strašně moc.

    Like many other readers/reviewers I am intrigued with the idea Cates presents in "Crossover" basically bringing a major comic book summer event to our very much real and present world. I realize first issues are generally set up so I, for one, am expecting bigger and better things from this series in the months ahead. Word on the street is that there will be some actual comic book heroes in this series.

    I saw a review online that called this story “bold,” and I honestly don’t know why. It’s an all-white cast focusing on superheroes. Of course there’s nothing wrong with that, but I can’t find the boldness in it. It feels so safe and structured to appeal to the majority of comic book fans. As someone who prefers more eccentric comics, I was incredibly bored by this. There were also three tropes that I hate to see in fiction: 1. A woman with a bizarre name who shortens it to something more “normal. I saw a review online that called this story “bold,” and I honestly don’t know why.

There were also three tropes that I hate to see in fiction: 1. A woman with a bizarre name who shortens it to something more “normal.” This always feels like a “not like the other girls” technique for making a woman really stand out as extraordinary simply because she doesn’t have a more common name that might be considered too feminine for a lead female character. I might sound crazy to some people, but there are so many stories that do this that it’s annoying now. “This is Ellipses Howell. She goes by Ellie. Or El.” 2. The book compares the religious hatred of marginalized groups to superheroes. As a queer person, this felt too ridiculous. As if the true victims of our culture are nerds who like superheroes rather than people who are actually victimized. A church-sponsored billboard that reads “God hates masks.” Religious zealots holding signs that read “Pray the capes away.” 3. The book tells me what the story is about. I prefer narratives that let me draw my own conclusions. As Jane Alison (author and creative writing professor) says, “Instead of following a line of story, your brain draws the lines, makes connections.” “Because, again, this story… it’s not really about any of this… It’s about believing in something when the whole world tells you that you’re wrong… About trying to find a home when the one you have feels broken, or gone… In fact… believe it or not… it’s also a love story. But more than that, more than anything… more than superheroes or mega events or good guys and bad guys and the world gone wrong… this is a story… about hope.” Now I understand that this hope reference is an ode to Superman, but it still felt so heavy-handed. I’m not trying to attack this story or its author (I love Cates because Redneck is spectacular). But I feel like there are so many bland stories people paint as “bold” or “revolutionary” when, to people from a less privileged perspective, they feel like more of the commercial content that doesn’t really have anything interesting to say.

    Well here's Crossover. The title being touted as the next Watchmen by its company. Perhaps too bold a claim to sustain but its usually a good sign when a company puts this much effort into a product. It means they believe in it and that what's inside is worth caring about. Now as far as this issue goes... its a little heavy handed and a little more impressed with itself than can possibly be cashed- buuuuut... I liked it. 😊 Still think God Country was more well written and mature with its themes. T Well here's Crossover. The title being touted as the next Watchmen by its company.

I liked it. 😊 Still think God Country was more well written and mature with its themes. This one is... I'm still thinking about a lot of it honestly. The main character is named Ellipses. And I'm yet to really commit to whether or not I find that pretentious or charming. The church stuff lacks subtlety but I imagine that's intentional. I already get the impression we're gonna have a few Redemption arcs because of it. (As you can imagine I'm really excited about that). The art is unquestionably cool. Reminds me of Revival and Into the Spiderverse. The ending is what has me intrigued. That final splash page is making a promise and anyone who has an interest in comics will undoubtedly have their eyebrows raised a few centimeters by it. If they're gonna do what I think they're gonna do I have a certain sense of pride that Image comics has come this far to be able to pull something like this off. Is it gonna work? No idea. But the effort is nice. You feel like the people making this really believe in it and I think that's contagious. I want this to work. I really don't know if I know enough to make a clear Judgement. But it's engaging enough so.... yeah? 👍 This is fine. 😊

    I'm honestly torn, and half way through reading this I was convinced that I was going to write a bad review...and then...it sucked me in. You see, it's a little too sure of its own cleverness, and that always puts me off...but, then, aren't I a little too sure of my own cleverness in some of the comics I write? And...maybe this is clever? I'll admit that I do think naming the main character Ellipses is fairly brilliant. I'm also unsure of the way the comic book community is presented here, but I'm I'm honestly torn, and half way through reading this I was convinced that I was going to write a bad review...and then...it sucked me in.

I'm also unsure of the way the comic book community is presented here, but I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt and see how it plays out. I find it funny that the "fictional" characters...the ones who've stepped out of the pages of a comic, are coloured traditionally, with the dots of four colour process printing...while everyone else, who is actually also a fictional character in a comic, is coloured like...well...a regular modern comic. It gets very meta. But that last page...promises something that...it can't possibly deliver on...right? But, then, this is called Crossover...

    Interesting premise but this issue is good but it dress the table, but since this is the premise of the book , what comes next will determine if it goes beyond that. Reminds me of ready player one . I hope this is not just a tool to promote image characters.
