    It's Thursday, it's mid-afternoon in London, it's another wrongheaded morning in Mericky, it's who-the-fuck-knows-when in Australia, and it's time for more Crossed Hideosity.

    Episode 29, live and free-to-air.

    Remember: Not safe for work, not safe for minors, not safe for people of a nervous disposition, not safe for chicken sausages, not safe for my sexy new iPhone, not safe for podlings.

    Si:

    I apologize for any hasty words from last week on my part, because you totally made up for it. Two things in particular. The page that introduces Monica has one of the Crossed on the bottom panel with a cracked open head still running full speed to rapekill. I like that kind of dedication.

    Second is the Street Fighter Crossed. Hadouken! with a knife makes it for me. I need to see this guy again.

    This episode is the best example of how damn mean the Crossed universe can be. Great stuff.

    Re: haDOUken!

    Aww, Deadpool went Crossed.



    EDIT: Come to think of it, I guess he sort of always was...

    Well now Shaky and the other Cava survivors have enough extras to replace the 5 they lost (Jon the paratrooper, Sofia the deaf Spaniard, the mute boy with the glasses, the Scouse in issue 1 on the rowboat, and the toddler child of the Muslim family) since the start of the series. I wonder why they have to limit the number of new recruits to 2?

    @Ramon, I'd say it's two things. First, I would guess the "Leaders" on Cava have an idea of how many people they can comfortably sustain on the island. Second, I feel like Don doesn't want too many people, then his small bit of power is harder to keep a hold of.
  4.  (10914.9)
    The thought of "Crossed" and "comfort" coexisting makes me laugh out loud, and not at you.
  5.  (10914.10)
    There's also the question of how many people they can get on that one boat without it sinking. As is mentioned in the chapter, Shaky does toy with the idea of simply telling them where Cava is and letting them find their way there on their own.
  6.  (10914.11)
    Don is like all civil leaders. His concern for the people is a sham. He simply uses power to conduct social experiments on the subjects, including population control, and as in the case of Sofia, male domination.
  7.  (10914.12)
    Also, no point in crying over the loss of the man with the strong immune system (and really, he should have stood further away from the water!)...
    Because I suspect we've already met at least one character with some form of immunity...
  8.  (10914.13)
    Oh yeah, Shaky. You know that the British government from a secure underground complex is scouring the area through its Jackson-rivalling secret agents in their acid-proof suits just waiting to get a sample of Shaky's blood so that they can discover and mass produce the cure to the crossed infection and then deliver it airborne via chem-trails.
  9.  (10914.14)
    Now that's what I like about this series -

    Hey look, a guy who's immune to the Crossed virus!*
    Knife in throat, gargle, splash
    Oh well, never mind...

    Hilarity of the bleakest kind.

    *Or whatever. Ye ken well wha' ah mean.
  10.  (10914.15)
    Shakey is definitely turning badass. He's becoming more capable & ruthless by the day. To nonchalantly describe a substantial band of crossed as 'a proper pain in the arse' is pretty hardcore.

    I think he's working who in Jaspers crew he's going to throw under the bus when the time comes to return to Cava. Jasper & the biddy are for the high jump for sure. The Kenyan & the maori are front runners for the 2 survivor places. Jurys out on the cheesemaker.

    God know what the written messages are about. Is he trying to make contact with the Nun?

    I too wonder about the written message to sister Teresa... :)

    Seems like Shaky is not too fond of former members (or possible former) members of the armed forces either...hehe...

    And Viceroy - surprise, surprise, still in the game!
  11.  (10914.18)
    I still think that the closest Shaky will get this foray to being the monster that he hates as manifested in the Gameskeeper is just having such thoughts (of letting the less useful of the new arrivals die) cross his mind. He's on this sortie in order to rid himself of the guilt he has over his complicity in the exploitation of the nun and horrific murder of her elderly patients. Besides, each of the remaining survivors has something useful to contribute to the main Cava group (the soccer player and female tank are muscle, the old lady for dental hygiene techniques, the cheesemaker for more diverse food production not to mention for lightening the tension with his humor, and even Jasper for his leadership and heat-sensitive optic device).
  12.  (10914.19)
    On reflection I don't think Shakey is trying to contact the nun. The notes are addressed to 'Aoileann' & not 'Teresa'. I suppose Teresa could have been called Aoileann prior to formally becoming a nun but this doesn't seem very likely.
  13.  (10914.20)
    Um.
