    Interlude?! Noooooo!!

    "Fuck... mah... balls."

    A repeat interlude, to boot! Damn.

    Well now having read the same interlude twice, it really drives home the fact that Shaky is beginning to empathize with the crossed.

    Mm. Not sure what's going on there. Have called it in.

    @ maxnutter - yes, I was aware of the origin of the "X" on the nun's face. the confusion I was referring to was if the "X" has anything to do with why she doesn't HAVE the actual crossed "rash" on her face. because she's obviously Crossed, yes? however instead of the rash, she just still has the scars.
    she can't NOT be Crossed, as they've already shown infected crossed men taking her from the rear. amongst other details.
    another weird little detail in relation to her scars is that they recently showed dead humans on Flotta (am I spelling that right? too lazy to check) also bearing the "X" scars on their face. is that a calling card of the nun? must be, right? all very curious.

    also, in relation to the interlude... "fuck.. mah.. balls" indeed. noooooooooooooooooo

    @dirtynouveau yeah, I saw the corpses with the X carved into their face(and many crucified like the soldiers from the town with the mortar). That must be a sign that the nun's horde is present. The best theory on the nun's "X", I think, is that she has a seizure at the moment of infection(probably from a crossed Gamekeeper) which caused some kind of interference with the effects(lack of the rash and greater cognitive ability). Especially in light of Si's Badlands arc which looked at the effect of the Crossed infection on a decidedly non-normal brain(in that case, a heavy ketamine user who, after turning, became a Crossed with the ability to focus, but who was also doomed to repeat the same journey over and over).

    I Can't see the interlude, it just goes up to episode 58 for me. I read the episode again, but I WANT to read the interlude now, so I can gratuitously and caustically dissect Shaky's (shaky, flaky, and achy breaky) process a bit more. I know I'm always wrong, and miss glaringly obvious stuff, but I enjoy it. (Bet that's the first time anyone's actually requested an interlude for like, . . . . . ages)

    Thanks Si.
    Dirty Bombs eh? That would just make the crossies more toxic, surely? They ARE Dirty bombs! Organically delivered Psycho-Necrotic multi platform, cross-infectious bio-engineered homo-specific fuck muck bombs. Unless I'm (once again) very much mistaken.

    "Every ballbag's packed with cancer, and every womb's a withered binbag"? That, my friend is fucking poetic. Also, can't wait to find out what kind of genefucked abomination slithers out of Tab's delicate wee squishy, when her term is up.

    And what rough beast, It's hour come at last, slouches towards Cava to be born?

    Yo Si, I know this is irrelevant as this is a Crossed forum (so I apologize in advance if this violates some interweb forum etiquette that I'm not aware of) but... I just read issues 1 & 2 of <em>Six Gun</em> and... it is fucking awesome. Stokely's art is perfectly fitting, as well.

    I'm hooked. Well done, sirs.

    @VoteForDuvall I need to check those out. I read the first issue of "Numbercruncher" though, and it is also fantastic.
  8.  (11117.13)
    Ooh, nice. Might need to check out 'Numbercruncher' next. Haven't really heard/read much about it yet, so thanks.

    On the new episode (volume 3, chapter 8), links to the previous and next pages are missing, and the images' size is condensed/reduced, though the images can be opened in a new page in their correct/larger size. Also, each of this current episode's pages is titled "Whoops! Page Not Found."

    I think it should be sorted now. New thread up in a mo.
