Exclusive Comics Excerpt: ‘Crossing Midnight’




Every week, the Comics Page introduces you to brand-new graphic novels by the world's best artists and writers. Manga, superheroes, indie comix — we'll cover them all as our editors select the best the exploding comics world has to offer.



A brother and a sister are born on either side of midnight in Nagasaki, Japan. Years later, the twins and their mysterious powers are drawn into the world of kami, brutal and legendary spirits of the natural and man-made worlds.


Today on the Comics Page, we're excerpting Crossing Midnight, the first volume of Mike Carey and Jim Fern's horrific fairy tale, coming this month from Vertigo. And starting this week, the Comics Page will compile all five of our excerpts on one easy-to-read page!
