    I felt sorry for the donkey, to be honest.

    I can see why someone like Seline would be voted the first to go by the majority of readers, what with all her crying and whining (of course, we'd all be shitting our pants in fright in this evil madmen pandemic apocalypse scenario), but for me that makes me want to know how she could have had the resourcefulness, drive, and/or dumb luck to make it this far. Maybe it's just the cloudbothering Texan in me that elicits my sympathy, though.

    People who can make you feel sorry for them are extremely manipulative.

    ^^^ That's no shit! ^^^

    "Horsecock level of leadership" - I never would have guessed that would be a barometer for measuring skill levels / authority, lol.

    Great episode!

    I liked the theme of rush of joy/laughing when escaping danger...

    (...my girlfriend sometimes assaults me, biting my nipples going all "man-up-you-like-this" which makes me laugh out loud though I'm not exactly amused, it kinda' hurts, but I'm still alive. Gotta' be pretty much the same thing as escaping some crossed, right? ;-))

    Jackson will disapear, to meat his end in Badlands, I figure. Hopefully we'll get to see his background...

    And Viceroy, still around!? I'll be damned..., though he would have met his end long ago..., but I'm sure it's going to be a creative death...

    @ Si - what do you think? Colors are just fine in my copy. You don't have to scroll UPANDDOWNANDCLICKANDWAITANDUPANDDOWN. You can just turn the fucking page. You can see the whole page. You can read it in bed or in the bath. I went through something similar with FREAKANGELS but if THAT'S my complaint (*whinges "I hate reading comics on a screen, waah, I'm a stupid little baby. I also hate free things, the music of the Beatles, tiramisu and a nice blowjob waaah*) then you're alright, mate.

    It's not that the trade paperback's colors are wrong, they're just much darker than they appear online, which might be due to my monitor's brightness (or my video card's contrast, hue, and saturation) settings. Using the mousewheel to scroll down isn't a problem, nor is flipping a virtual page on a fast Internet connection. This is the first series which I've preferred to read online than as a trade paperback, so I would now choose to subscribe to or order a digital version if Avatar has such an option.

    In the other thread that's closed now, (Sister Theresa's face. . . .) I was speculating on the introduction of celebrity characters in a "Crossed" scenario. Now I've just read Badlands 15 and 16, and it seems that Grant Morrison (thinly disguised as "Welles") is playing a batshit crazy writer, running some kind of "workshop" where he royally fucks with people's heads. Life imitating art?
  5.  (10890.32)
    You could have endless fun with the celebrity angle. How about the start of the crossed outbreak as seen by one of President Obamas Secret Service bodyguards?
  6.  (10890.33)
    The Crossed outbreak began around 2007, so then-Senator Obama had no Secret Service detail. President Bush perished as Air Force One turned out not to be a sterile environment.
    Grant Morrison (under a code name The Writer) died in an issue of Suicide Squad (during one of those ridiculous early 90s crossovers) that was written by John Ostrander. It seems he suffered from a bout of writer's block right as he needed some inspiration.
  7.  (10890.34)
    I remember Obama had a falling out with Jesse Jackson, who threatened to "cut his nuts off." I would love to see Reverend Jesse turned Crossed chasing the future President with a butcher's knife. Leading Michelle (who grew up in Jesse's house) to grab the double-barrelled shotgun. "Don't make me use this, Pappy!" Ka-Blam! Obama: "Now that's what I'm talking about."
