DECOMPRESSED 011: SI SPURRIER ON CROSSED: WISH YOU WERE HERE

Er… hello, pleasant blog reader.

STOP NOW! DON’T SCROLL DOWN.

This comic’s is NSFW. In a “No, really, man. Be careful” way. In terms of trigger warnings for the study aids, imagine the number of signs saying “TRIGGER HERE” in the scene in Indiana Jones when he’s trying to get the Idol. So scroll down carefully. And that goes double if my Dad’s reading this.

I’m joined by Si Suprrier to talk about CROSSED: WISH YOU WERE HERE. Because it’s a webcomic makes it a somewhat unusual one, in that you can literally follow this link and read the whole thing. In fact, I’d recommend you do so, as it’s genuinely great horror material, written with an underlying intelligence and humanity. I’d also recommend the trade collection, which puts it all in a nice book. You can get it from your local comic shop, and in a couple of weeks on Amazon.

You can download the podcast from here. Its webpage RSS page is here. And you can find it on Itunes here.

Or you can caress Mr Embed, who lurks below seductively…

God, Mr Embed is so fucking beautiful.

AND VISUAL AIDS!

Okay – as I talk about in the podcast, we’re doing it a bit different this time. Since we’re talking about stuff from across the whole comic, I’m putting them in the order we talk about them. Just scroll them down. Though, to repeat, you really can go off and read the whole thing.

Firstly, however, here’s the ride thing we’re both horrified by at the start of the podcast. Seriously, imagine that fucker during a Crossed outbreak.

Here’s the Sofia chapter we talk about directly…

Our theme tune? Los Campesinos’ We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed.
