One of the things that we love about the literary medium is its ability to tell a story with a host of assorted characters in unique situations. One of the greatest aspects of comics is that these stories are told with not only a writer’s words, but also with the artist’s pencils and inks. Sometimes these collaborations don’t always work but when the right creative team gets crossed together, that’s when the magic happens. Such is the case with Crossing a new title from one of our favorite companies Red Stylo Media.
Written by Enrica Jang with art by Alex Cormack and letters by Mark Mullaney, Crossing tells the story of a rookie commuter train conductor (M.C. Tejada) who has the misfortune of having a young women jump in front of his train on his very first day of work. The story unfolds as Tejada’s life is further complicated when the ghost of Nina (the girl who jumped) begins to haunt him. What ensues in an exploration in comedy as the 6 issues series will examine what happens when an annoying goth princess haunts the rookie train conductor who ran over her.
The Kickstarter campaign for the first issue of the six issue mini-series has been fully funded with more than two weeks left. Considering how much we loved Red Stylo Media’s Azteca and judging the preview panels, Crossing looks to be great ride of a story in the making.
