Crossed scribe SIMON SPURRIER teams up with artist RAFAEL ORTIZ to unleash this vile tale of misery and mischief in the all-new over-sized Crossed 2014 Annual! Ah, the English countryside! Tweeting birds, friendly vicars, crumpets and jam: the peaceful rural idyll. The cow’s in the dairy, the dog’s in his bed and there’s a fat asthmatic kid hiding up the old tower. Also: a mob of Crossed lurking near the duckpond – quaint and friendly sadists who want nothing but to eat your face off and violate your skull – and nobody but the withered old farmer’s wife to stop them. Problem is, she’s Crossed too. And insane. Can old Wheezy play them all off against each other long enough to escape? SUCH JOLLY LARKS. Available with Regular cover by Jacen Burrows, Wraparound by Rafa Ortiz, Torture cover by Gabriel Andrade and special Red Crossed Incentive cover also by Burrows.
