Topic: Garth Ennis' CROSSED goes monthly! Rejoice!
A virus breaks out. The infected remain alive and human, but gleefully carry most their most evil desires and wishes, killing, maiming, and raping (often simultaneously), and perpetuating the spread of the disease with every body fluid. The world is hellish. Crossed creates the unimaginable and watches its characters try to survive with both their lives and their humanity.
Fleeing across this nightmare-ish America is a group of regular people who happened to have found each other. They donâ€™t know what caused the outbreak. There is no safe haven for them to find. They cannot rest. The best they can try to do is to make it to Alaska, where they are likely to find solitude in the freezing weather. Eventually the Crossed (the infected, called such because of a characteristic cross-shaped rash that appears on their faces) will die off, as they are wont to kill their own kind after going long periods of time without finding innocents. For the foreseeable future, there is no hope but to survive -- or die a quick death.
