Crossed promo cards by Avatar

Although I have never seen one, myself, Avatar Comics produced an exclusive 2011 San Diego Comic Con promo for its Crossed card set. I see a picture of it on its website.

And it looks like from their site that they have at least 2 new ones for 2012, a C2E2 exclusive and a Phoenix Con promo

Anyone know how many different ones there are ?

Anyone have any extras they'd like to part with ? Smile

Hi David:

You might look at this thread:

Comic Con 2011 News

That post is from last July. It was on the blog too at the time. I hadn't heard they were making more though. And as I posted before, I'm not really familiar with this comic. Barrett has posted it's quite adult in the other thread.

From what I hear, the comic is ultra-violent. I really am not familiar with it, at all.

Here are pictures of the two 2012 promos from Avatar's website. Is it OK to post these ?
The latter is a bit gory

These Crossed promos were distributed in 2011.
I have an extra Promo 2 (C2E2 show exclusive)

Would prefer to trade for Crossed Phoenix, Detroit, or NYCC show promos. Anyone?

Is the actual set available?

Great comic but not for the feint hearted.

Yes, Avatar is selling the card set itself

Not the promos

I have the 2011 SDCC promo (#5) signed and unsigned. He had about a hundred in a box.

Weren't there 9 issues of the original Garth Ennis written series? That means there's another 10 covers to go, at least!

Indeed, the card set is largely made up of the variant covers. I bought one at Comic Con last year and it came with a ticket to come back the next day and get a couple of autographs from Garth Ennis himself. I had him sign the title card in the card set and an issue of Preacher from which I have a couple of pages of the original Steve Dillon art. Pretty cool, I hadn't seen Garth at Comic Con in nearly 10 years and he told me that he hadn't been there in about that long.

9 issues of Crossed plus the 0 and Sketchbook (Preview).

The set also includes Crossed: Family Values (7 issues).

I will have to see if I can make out the signature. I thought it was the creator/artist.

Most likely Jacen Burrows, then. He was the penciller on the original Crossed series (plus he's done lots of other work for Avatar). They seem to prefer artists who pack insane detail into their work.

The signatures I've seen form Jacen Burrows are just, "Jacen" (sometimes vertically). Garth Ennis is a lot harder to decipher .

Yes, Ennis' signature has really changed over the years. In the early days of his career (late 80's and early 90's), you could make out pretty much every letter in both names. These days, it's pretty much a single, uninterrupted scribble, albeit a bold one. I'll post examples of both a bit later.

The hard to find 6 Crossed Promo cards are now available as a set, but only if you buy the Deluxe "Crossed #25" multi-issue package available through Preview advance ordering catalog now, or else directly from Avatar through their retailer, Comics Cavalcade.

Original series creator Garth Ennis is back for this issue (and #26), so they went all out with multiple different covers including one printed on leather (ugh) and one with a full sketch. Also included, and of interest to card collectors, is a sketch card signed by Jacen Burrows and Ennis and the complete 6 card promo set.

The set is expensive as $100 (-$30 if you buy your comics in advance like I do), so its a long way to go for a few cards, but I figured, I really only need one of the #25 comic, so hopefully I can sell most of the other comics to get a good chunk of the $70 back. I'll post a picture of the promos once I have them, but it'll be a couple a months, which is the flipside of that nice 30% discount, having to order things a couple of months in advance, that is.

I'm also picking up the Deluxe Box Set. I love Crossed comics and I'm a sucker (aka "comic shop owner's friend) for the variant covers. There's some excellent covers in the set (looking forward to the die cut one) and the sketch cover one. I also need the promos and I think this is probably the only way to get them (unless others buyers sell them from their Deluxe Box Set). I'm sure you'll be able to get your money back on selling the incentive covers, the one limited to 250 and the sketch cover.

I've got as leather cover of the Neonomicon Hornbook comic and it is a bit weird.

Agree with you guys that the deluxe set may be the only way to get all 6 Crossed promo cards... I've been trying to get the three cards that I'm missing for well over a year with no luck... Just wish that this deluxe price tag wasn't so high!!

Still happy to trade my spare C2E2 Chicago Crossed promo for a Phoenix, Detroit, or NYCC promo.

Looks like a good deal, but unless I am reading it incorrectly this is a pre-order which means the item won't be out until March. I could be wrong !
