Simon Spurrier has visited Crossed before, his long form webcomic Crossed: Wish You Were Here is a staple in the universe and delivered some of the most memorable characters of any Crossed tale to date. In this volume of the collections he takes you to a picturesque environment in the English countryside with tweeting birds, friendly vicars, crumpets and jam, and a mob of Crossed lurking near the duck pond. No one sees Wheezy the fat asthmatic kid hiding up in the old tower but if he shows his face it will only be the farmer’s wife between him and a bloody fate. The problem is, she’s Crossed too. This story delivers chills in a way that would make the old EC tales proud.
