CROSSING MIDNIGHT VOL. 1: CUT HERE
Miyazaki's Spirited Away meets Asian horror in this inital volume of CROSSING MIDNIGHT, collecting the acclaimed first five issues of the series by writer Mike Carey (LUCIFER) and artist Jim Fern (FABLES). A compelling fantasy/horror series set in the heart of present-day Nagasaki, Japan, CROSSING MIDNIGHT begins when extraordinary twins are born — one just before midnight and the other just after. They discover the huge impact this small difference has on their destinies when one of them is inducted into a world of supernatural beings and events that intersects with our own world.
CROSSING MIDNIGHT #1
Set in contemporary Nagasaki, CROSSING MIDNIGHT taps into Japanese and Korean horror to mix the mythology of The Sandman with the fantasy of films like Hayao's Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away. Together, Mike Carey and Jim Fern come up with flights of fantasy tethered to a reality where children are stolen, innocence corrupted, and where two teenagers will have to stare down bizarre beings capable of very visceral terrors.
