I ABSOLUTELY loved it, it's has such a fascinating and unpredictable storyline, that's soooo difficult to put the book away.
First got hold on volumes 2 and 3. Now after couple of years Amazon had volume 1.
Very happy with. Thnx Amazon. <3

I liked this novel, it is bloody but steeped in the Japanese culture. The events take place in modern day Japan and all of the deities are from Japanese folklore. I was not familiar with any of them so it added an exotic element and I did not know what to expect next. The story of the twins born before and after midnight and their parents is a great framework to have all the crazy events occurring around. I liked the artwork and am excited to see what happens next, I recommend this book its an interesting read.

Crossing Midnight: Cut Here is the first volume of what will hopefully be a decent-length series by Mike Carey. Though better known for his work on Hellblazer and Lucifer, Mike Carey is an excellent writer who all-to-seldom works with characters and universes of his own creation. In Crossing Midnight, we get introduced to a family in modern Japan and the mythical realms that lay beside it. As is often the case in stories of this type, our view of the story is through a handful of characters who figure out what is going on as we do. Thus, we are peripherally introduced to three beings (kami) who are not gods and not demons, but something else. They are, in some way, creatures that control animistic forces of specific types - blades and needles (at least, thus far).

Now, that sounds interesting enough in of itself, but there are a few warnings. First of all, this is a work of horror. Bad things happen to good people, and that's just how things are. In many ways, this is a common feature of Mike Carey's work. However, as this is a graphic novel, these events are also rendered... graphically. If blood and violence disturb you, you should give this one a pass. (Personally, my trigger point is unnecessary blood and violence. Since it's necessary to the plot, I was able to tolerate it.)

Enough hints are dropped that we know that there is a significant back story, both among the kami and the two youngsters around whom the story shall weave. There is sufficient material that this story could take years to tell, and since I buy these as collections, a bit longer to read. I look forward to reading the occasional volume as the years go by.

Don't be fooled by the title of this review, Crossing Midnight is one of my favorite series, and this first volume is great in its own right. It has a hump to straddle in the first 3 issues, where I found it hard to remain interested in the somewhat slow and comparatively uninteresting introduction. After that, though, it really picks up and drops the reader into a fascinating world of demons and spirits and plays its cards perfectly. By the end of the first volume, you should be drooling for the second.

Interesting plot, great art, cool Japanese setting with underlying horror / mystery themes. Worth checking out!
