I seriously thought the title was a one-shot. Don't they have a leather cover for $$$?

Why now? They have been doing that for the last 5+ years. You ever buy or read any Crossed? Each issue has minimum 4 covers.

As a company they are all about appealing to the speculator, and not known for content. I know the owner on a business level and he is a big time speculator of comics in general. They are all gimmicks and low print runs. With that said they really took gore comics to another level I personally collect crossed for it's over the top horror/gore, but it's not for everyone and extremely sick stuff.

I used to read crossed when Garth Ennis was doing it but not read any of the recent series. Some of the Warren Ellis stuff they did was good. No Hero being a prime candidate

True. I also meant in a general sense. Wormwood was also good.
