Retail Price: $19.99 US
Cover: Jacen Burrows
Writer: Simon Spurrier
Art: Fernando Melek
MR, Full Color, 160 pages, TPB

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Available in print for the first time! The second chapter of the brutal, apocalyptic horror series is finally here! Written by Si Spurrier (X-Men Legacy, Silver Surfer, Extermination), this critically acclaimed volume collects the latest arc of the weekly webcomic, ongoing at Crossedcomic.com. Unable to bear life on the doomed island-sanctuary he calls home, manipulative writer Shaky has tricked his way into an expedition crew: hunting supplies among the vile, violent hordes of Crossed on mainland Scotland. But will he find what he seeks amidst the blood-stained snow – a way to stave-off numbness; a reason to go on – or will the tough decisions of leadership and the terrors of a Crossed world rob him of what little humanity he has left? And if he survives, what will he and his companions find when they struggle home to the killing-shores of Cava Island? These are the continuing excerpts from Shaky’s bleak diary: the story of a community clinging to a false future in a world overrun by infectious, sadistic fiends. There is no hope. There’s only the Crossed.

*Collects the second chapter of the runaway hit web comic from www.CrossedComic.com
*Trade Paperback and Hard Cover editions, each featuring new covers by Jacen Burrows!
