    Looking forward to what this team will do with the Crossed. Even more to see Zombies in the Crossed? typo?
    the professor looks long winded, so hopefully Hine wont spend too much on his ramblings. how long is this arc, im guessing 5 since the apocalypse starts w/ #19.

    no zombies, 1page of crossed & plenty of the grant Morrisson doppelganger. some gore, just gearing up i guess.

    Crossed comics are really predictable: everybody gets fucked and/ or killed in the end. The first story was the best and it should have continued instead of that incredibly disappointing end. All this gore alone is pointless.

    i think they are great, and totally sick. i think i understand some critics, but i dont think its that repetitive. a return to the original survivors would be great, but Ennis has rules against it apparently. Since then we have seen various survivors and even one return! with any luck we we see more of that, helping to construct a common world feel. but i expect death and torture are the standards in this ecosystem, so probably cameos will be few and far between.

    This title is not really written like much else, and i for one am enjoying the pointless gore, almost aas much as the really good stuff. art, colors, design, writing… its all been pretty great. Spurrier has been the only disappointment, for me. and his work has been damn good, when its not the wanking chapters.

    its interesting how most arcs seem to start at “day 0″ if you will. i guess this allows for more chatter and character development. as long as it doesn’t take too long to see the real stars of the show. Hopefully more writers will be able to write and develop on the fly. Lapham’s most recent arc did well at that.
    Keep it up folks, im on till #19!
