The Pratt family showdown finale is here. Today I will be reviewing Crossed:Family Values #7. Please leave a comment to let me know what you think.
Crossed: Family Values #7
So let’s talk about the book. As Kate is delivering her baby, the Crossed attack, led by mommy dearest. Outnumbered, with little to no ammo, and with no way out, the survivors head to the sewers. Too bad mommy is tracking her kids by scent. Catching one survivor by surprise, mom manages to get one and turn him. When they team up to take out the rest, Addie makes her last stand. The battle is fast and fierce, but Addie manages to escape with only a huge injury to her brother, finally killing mom. As the Crossed enter the sewers, the survivors manage to escape in the confusion and make it to a safe haven. But what place is really safe from the Crossed? And that’s the book. (Nine dead, four alive for those keeping count. I was so sure it would be less.)
So let’s talk opinions. After all of the violence and gruesome imagery from the past six issues, this one was a cakewalk. Not saying that there was nothing but roses and sunshine. We still had plenty of blood, gore, sex and violence. Jethro wearing Addy’s brother’s head as underwear was a nice image to take in. Plus mommy running around in her birthday suit all issue was a nasty sight as well. And don’t get me started on that dickhead the Red Baron. (Trust me! That sentence makes perfect sense if you read the issue.) Violent imagery aside, the art in general on this title has been phenomenal. The story was good as well but kind of a sappy ending considering the intense hell that this family has gone through to get to this point. I also find it funny that out of all the humans, only the family survived. The ending was a little bit sappy but hopeful which I guess is the moral of this story. Even in hell, hope still survives. That, and even the little things are taken as a miracle. Addy has grown into the protector and breadwinner of the family. So many hardships were endured by her and she survived them all. A nice character growth series. So that brings this mini to a close. Have no fear, however, that this is the end of Crossed. Coming in a month or two will be Crossed:Psychopath. A tale about a non-crossed human, who is supposedly so cruel and vicious, he makes the crossed look like innocent newborns. I can’t wait. That’s my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.
