    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! It's time for more Crossed Hideosity!

    Episode 47, 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 Collins Gem, not safe for Carrie Fisher, not safe for Merry-Maker Excursions.

    Hmmm. The plot thickens. Anyone have any ideas for the identity of the man in black?

    Oh, Christ, at least you know how to deal with the Crossed, anything but Yanks...

    uhh, is it just me or did the Gamekeeper "X" the Nun's face? why is her face not "X"d in this episode then? a bit of a boo-boo here, possibly?

    also - speaking as an American in love with the Crossed series... dammit! Alright fuck it, I hate my countrymen too.

    Yeah - little graphics "OOPS" with the missing 'X'; but that's just a hiccup. The meat & potatoes are definitely in the new chapter here.

    WOW...that was something. Is there an immunity to getting Crossed I wonder in those with epilepsy? I mean, it [epilepsy] IS caused by disturbances in brain function so maybe that existing glitch causes "Crossed" not to take hold? Or something? Either way, not much of a leap save for the explanation of where the crispy looking red facial cross comes from - their loony and psychotic actions versus a facial scab shaped like a T are entirely different. An "acne" outbreak ought not drive folks bat-shit, have them porking dolphin holes, swinging a horse cock to show leader status and using it as a club, wearing balls sacs for necklace.....and the like. (heh)

    Anywho, seeing a boat of 3 Americans paddle up was interesting, indeed. Can't wait to see what Rab says they discussed ever so briefly down there; or until the next issue shows us what took place when he went down to the boat. (Either way it looks a bit like there's a plethora of "Yank" jokes coming to the pages here, lol. Can't wait to read those little gems! lol) Regardless, our story here just took one hell of a nifty turn!

    Thanks, Si!!!

    The Crossed may be septic bastards full of every kind of disease and illness, including the plusface plague itself, but those Eagleland fuckers are the other kind of septics.

    Shaky keeps keeping secrets and alienating himself. In the beginning of the webcomic he was just a warm body, our narrator, and a flake. Now he's become someone secretive and not to be trusted. Points to Si on character devs.

    You don't half fuck about, do you, Si?

    And speaking purely nationalistically, it would've been funnier if they were Canadians.

    I remember a similar scene from Reign of Fire when the Americans turn up.

    Hmm..., "it's worse than we thought...", does that mean Americans are worse than the crossed, or that the world wide situation is worse that they thought, America is also hit hard i.e. Uncle Sam isn't coming to save the day...?

    What if they had been Germans..., "don't mention the war..." haha...:)

    @senorsmoothie AMERICA! Fuck yeah! Coming down to save the muthafuckin day-yeah! Also as an american that deeply loves anything crossed(except David Hines "golden road" arc) I kinda resent Rabs statement. But i suppose if i were from another country i'd feel the same...hell sometimes i do feel the same. Still very excited to see where this is all going. I also noticed the nun was missing her X in this chapter, small error, forgiven. But that is a very good point about how the crossed bug works on a brain that is already sort of broken. Who woulda guessed the nun was epileptic? But Si brought this up before in the "Love Conquers" arc. Mattias had a broken brain as well. Great work as always Si, keep em coming!

    @shan which man in black are u speaking of? If its the trash bag mummy in the boat with the nun and seline and other crossed then all we know thus far is he is crossed for sure and that he helped the nun find the letters shaky was leaving and that he is probably the first crossed to ever save a humans life as opposed to raping, killing and eating.(saved viceroy) He is clearly a part of the nuns posse. What im wondering is who is the bearded man with a hood that we have seen with the nun on 2 separate occasions? Once we saw him in the boat following the sortie with the nun right after they escaped the mortar shelling, all we could see was a beard and the hood blocking his face not showing his cross, the second time was at the standing stones when the nun was getting her hat or scarf or whatever being stapled to her head, he was watching behind her and once again all we saw was the beard and hood, but no crossed scar. Im willing to bet he probably is crossed, i thought he might be the bearded crossed man that was fucking the nun with a severed leg but then why no hood then? Mysteries, Mysteries, Mysteries. Can't ignore, can't ignore, can't ignore.

    Disclosure: missing "X" cut-wounds on the nun's face this ep were indeed an oversight. Sorry all. We'll try and get corrections up at some point, and it should be resolved in the tpb.

    At least it wasn't the French?

    Scariest thing from the last two episodes: it really, really looks like the nun ISN'T infected. She has that scar, but she doesn't have the Crossed plus. And neither does Seline.

    Also, I'm sort of betting that the Man In The Rubber Suit isn't infected either.

    @kzootron I think most of us here believe that the bearded Crossed is the Gamekeeper. The fact that, in this issue, he was shown to have survived the gunshot makes this more likely.
    @Berserker the wrapped up guy is crossed. Volume 2 Chapter 4 page 13

    GAMEKEEPER SURVIVED!! CALLED IT! Fuck me, I was actually right about something for a change. Looking back to episode 1, we know that Shaky isn't exactly an ace shot under pressure. The hit on GK's body wasn't exactly center mass and we already know the GK is one tough, resilient old bastard. Blood loss be damned, apparently!

    After reading WYWH each week, I keep saying to myself, "Shit. Just. Got."

    Can't wait to see how the nun/GK scenario plays out next week!! Though I fear we are due for a dreaded interlude.
  8.  (11072.20)
    Also... I didn't guess that the beardo crossed fella was the GK. I'd guess that the trashbag mummy is the crossed GK. Protecting idiots (Viceroy) and all that, while at the same time keeping his distance.

    Also also... What's up with his cyclops visor?
