We’ve raved about how vile and disturbing “Crossed” can be here at Bloody-Disgusting, and now with the help of Avatar Press was kind enough to offer up a little taste of the series for your reading pleasure. See if you have the stomach to take on the “Crossed” by reading the first two chapters of “Crossed: Wish You Were Here” for free after the jump.
In the story, a contagion-or a curse-has decimated the planet. Marked with a bloody cross, the Infected are driven to indulge their sickest desires. In this world of psychos, savages, and sexual predators, the few remaining uninfected learn to keep moving: endlessly fleeing fate. This is the story of those who refused. Those who are too desperate, too angry, or too broken to hide from horror. It’s the story of a comic-book writer who witnessed the downfall of London, and now finds himself in the midst of a new community, a new start, on a barren island off the Scottish coast. Pretending, just for a while, that he’s safe, that he’s useful… that he has a future. It won’t last.
There’s no sanctuary. No fighting back. No hope. There’s only the “Crossed”. Simon Spurrier delivers a harrowing tale of survivors living Scottish island, and how they cope in a Crossed infested world. “Crossed: Wish You Were Here” is completely character driven and emotionally gut-wrenching, as characters are faced with the choice of being predator or prey in this new world.
