Stick to the stories written by Ennis, Gage, Moore and Spurrier. Crossed can be actually good, but they're basically the only ones who know how to make it into something more than rape and gore porn. +100 is turning out to be specially decent.

>>
>>101634425
>>101634517
>>101634980

Last Smokey story I read he had hooked up with the twins girls that also managed to keep their wits after becoming crossed and they started a village of crossed and he felt peeved because his plan of breeding with another smart crossed had not worked out.

Except it actually did and the sisters plus his son, cunt, had ambushed him so they can take over the village and go back to just causing mayhem in general.

Smokey comes out of the river they threw him in the ambush and he's going back, now happy that his original plan is actually correct, since cunt is actually as smart as his parents.
>>
>>101635082
Oh shit
>>
>>101634611
Obviously, but we get banned when we say so.
>>
>>101635082
I actually really liked Smokey since he was so weirdly relatable, like yeah he’s a fucking psycho but he cares for the future of his people enough to devote decades to various plans to ensure their survival, the shock when his first brood of healthy women gets loose and noshes on each other and the sadness when he’s listening to his non-crossed buddy talk about his plans before mercy killing him are pretty poignant.
>>
>>101635206
I wouldn’t get your hopes up, th me chances of Beauregard Salt letting another smart crossed run around and possibly fuck up his long-term infiltration plan seem small, that and Smokey trusting another smart crossed after his own family screwed him are about the same. Odds are, if they did encounter each other then Smokey likely lost and died or moved somewhere else.
>>
>>101636314

Hell yeah.

Crossed has a thing that zombie stories usually don't in that the new epidemy can easily become the new norm if they figure out a way to not just kill themselves out of boredom.

Smokey's ambition is pretty interesting.When that guy you mentioned said how relieved he was that the crossed would just die out in a few decades and Smokey just had this look of sadness for a single panel was pretty good.
>>
Wait, the crossed/infected don't attack and kill each other? I though for the longest everyone infected behaved like it is deathmatch mode?
>>
>>101636500
They do, but they’ll attack non-crossed first becuase it’s more satisfying to them. Also, smart crossed can restrain themselves and keep the dumber ones from infighting by keeping them supplied with normals.
>>
>>101636500
It depends.
Sometimes, they won't. But most of the time, they're willing to maul each other for shits and giggles.
In the last +100, there was a small story with a bunch of Crossed fucking up with lions in an abandoned mall and going all HAHAHAHA KITTY WANTS TO PLAY while the lions mauled one of them.

>volume 1
>hey that wasn't too bad, I wonder what the next volume will be like

>>
>>101636500
They'll turn on each other if there are no normals around and they get bored or frustrated enough over this. They can also be tricked into going after each other, like in that one story where someone throws a rock at one and she attacks her companions thinking that they did it.

But sometimes they just fight for no reason. Psychopath had two "gangs" of Crossed who were at what was tantamount to war with each other.

Maybe, in the sense that they had similar goals but whereas Smokey was more focused on the survival of his people Salt worked on perpetuating the new world. I could see the conflict as big picture vs. small picture in Salt’s mind, Smokey wants to change the crossed to adapt to the world while Salt wants the world to adapt to the crossed. The conflict would come from Smokey trying to make another community that’s visible, which could draw attention to Salt’s own efforts. In the end Smokey has to go and Salt laments him as a great man that could have done great things but was too fixed on the relative short term/small scale.

Be nice to see interactions between intelligent Crossed.

Smokey and Salt were smart Crossed, while the Twins were Crossed that happened to be smart (by that I mean they retained their intellect, but at the end of the day were basically no different from the rank and file in that they had absolutely no interest in anything other than living as hedonistically as possible).
>>
Crossed is shit.
>>
>>101639005
Smart crossed make for excellent villains/villain protagonists, I'm really hooked on +100/Mimic despite the dip in quality after Moore left, but I guess the series can go anywhere after what's happened. I'm still intrigued by what exactly Salt meant in his diary by saying he's going to return and his followers will be able to see a sign everywhere when the date has arrived. I'm guessing it's some kind of eclipse or cross-shaped astronomical event.
>>
>>101639005
Wonder if something was wrong with Smokey that made him non-rabid, like the seizure disorder that the Nun had or the ketamine addiction that the hitman had.

Dude was monosyllabic, completely hairless (even after the time skips) and came off as more, I dunno, cunning than outright intelligent (could at least read, though).
>>
>>101639066
Assuming he was a fireman and not just wearing the coat of one, maybe hypoxia from smoke inhalation or something damaged his brain in just the right way? That or he just got nailed in the head before getting turned and that did it for him.
>>
>>101639066
He's not the only smart crossed unable to talk normally, Aoileann in Wish you Were Here and Horsecock in the original also were smart and able to lead a group while not being very verbose. I'm guessing you only fully retain your wits if you were an actual psychopath before you got infected, if you were just slightly crazy or very strong willed like Aoileann, you lose your highest functions and become breeding material for Salt's project.
>>
>>101639122
Never really considered Horsecock as being on the same level as Smokey and others.

Kind of see there being maybe three kinds of Crossed - the usual psychotic fodder, slightly more capable "pack leader" types like Horsecock, the mom from Family Values, the King Rat guy from the second Amanda story, the surgeon from the bridge arc, etc. and then the more or less entirely lucid types like Salt and the twins.

It is a known fact that the best way to start a sustainable thread about an unpopular subject on 4chan is to criticize it in the OP, thereby stimulating discussion for the critical first few posts.
'Hey guys, let's talk about Crossed!' has much less potential than 'hey guys, Crossed sucks!'

This guy's probably had the best life of anybody in the Crossed universe.
13 years of being under the protection of Smokey, drinking beer, sitting in an air-conditioned room and watching normies herded into torture ranches. In the end, you get mercifully, painlessly and unknowingly executed by your BFF/husbando.
What more could you ask for in the Crossed apocalypse?
>>
>>101639005
Wasn't there a Crossed that was fixated in a lady cop and went through a lot of shit just to find her, only to realize she was long dead or some shit like that?
Also, that nun from Wish you were here seemed intelligent.
>>
>>101639546
The lady cop story was Spurrier's first, I think.

The guy was Mafia hitman or something whose brain was fucked by some really potent drug, so he was a weird atypical Crossed who I think kept reliving the same day over and over (wake up, look for cop, realize she's dead, wander until pass out, repeat).

It is a virus but a doctor there said if you actually analyzed it, it makes you "think about rewriting the periodic table". She concludes it might be something that had always been hidden in the genetic code of all life and something finally triggered it. It gets more confusing because the arc establishes there were multiple patient zeroes all over the world, all starting the infection at the same time, so it couldn't be contained. Finally you have the British patient zero that the story focuses on, who says the infection is meant to "cleanse" and who seems to have a deep, personal knowledge of every horrible thing humans had ever done trough history.

read the first series, the badlands arcs by ennis/gage/spurrier, WYWH and +100 by moore and possibly spurrier

don't touch anything else with a ten foot long pole
>>
>>101648691
Badlands alone is 100 issues. 3 volumes for Crossed, Family Values and Psychopath. Wish you were here is 4 volumes. Crossed: +100 is 3 volumes. Now Crossed +100: Mimic will be another volume. Then you have around 10 scattered one-shots.
All in all, it's probably close to 200 issues total.

>>101648691
This >>101648820 Also +100 Mimic is a side story currently being published that's also by Gage and is pretty good.

Shaky did plenty of wrong but he was just a better survivalist than the others, you can't blame him for that. Hate the game, not the player.

Which fictional ones? Probably someone extra smart and with leadership skills. Someone like Erwin Smith from Attack on Titan would be VERY bad because he could seriously form an entire empirical army of Crossed. Think of the current Crossed like the Orks from WH40k. They're a wild species that are usually in packs in tribes, but rarely form empires. But like the Orks, if they actually formed empires, they'd be HIGHLY dangerous. Former Ork empires actually took humans and used them as fucking livestock. I could seriously see a Crossed empire doing something like this and even having breeding camps so that regular humans can pump out more humans to eventually turn into Crossed peoples.

Mister Fantastic would be the literal worst in my honest opinion. Remember the Marvel Zombies story and universe? Well there was an zombified Mister Fantastic that transverses universes and nearly spread the zombie infection in Ultimate Marvel. I'd wager that a Crossed Mister Fantastic would do the exact same thing and possibly be more effictive at it because he's not merely afflicted with the hunger, he's just a 100% amoral psychopathic Mister Fantastic.
>>
>>101638700
I haven't read it, but wasn't Salt a psychopath even before he became Crossed? I doubt someone like that would seriously "lament" having to kill Smokey. If he couldn't somehow strongarm or enlist Smokey into his plans, he'll feel nothing after killing him except maybe regret for the loss of a useful tool.

They already did something like that.

There was an arc with this PTSD'd chick hiding from the crossed, and the crossed in the area had created a "religion" where they killed any other person or crossed who dared to do anything sexual.
>>
>>101654616
Yeah I could’ve worded it better, regret would be a better way to say it.
>>
>>101636500
it's safe to say the majority of the crossed end up killing each other in euphoria within the first weeks

after that what remains is smart crossed and crossed with a vision ie covering a whole building with human skin. eventually the only ones that remain are smart crossed.

>>101639066
there's no specific definition. Some crossed have been depicted as needing more complex ways to get off instead of randomly slashing at anything fleshy. Certain writers made it so that crossed with certain obsessions are the others who develop things like cults and long term plans (ie the religious fanatic ends up creating his own crossed religion). Wish You Were Here has an army of crossed assembled only with the promise that if they get organized they can make the spree last longer. The final acts of Vol. 2 has the mother who spent all her life in the shadow of her abused family leads a crossed group and tries to reunite all her children

Some writers seem to imply that the smarter crossed happen when people are more accepting of their negative impulses. moore more or less made it so that cliche tier evil people are not affected.

A degree of practical rl knowledge also helps crossed last longer. If they can go innawoods they can make some preparations and also get pretty creative when killing even if they are can't rub two neurons together.
>>
I always felt Smokey had a shit arc, if only because his assaulting Norad relies on the trope of being able to cross colossal distances between panels despite the enemy having firearms.

As for Crossed itself, I'm surprised to say I enjoyed a lot of it for pushing the boundaries. You just need to get past the hyperbolic gore and shock covers to discover the characters and their tragedies inside.
>>
>>101651527
Just read I am a Hero, it's a similar premise but not as stupid. Well, until the ending anyway

I like Ennis but Crossed has always been one of his weakest works. I actually like his edgy humor but only when it's tempered by good character writing.

That's what i'm saying. Monkeys still form working societies because that's what they want to do. Not having any inhibitions doesn't make you a violent self-mutiliating psycho because, shock and amaze, most people don't want to fucking do that.

The real moral of Crossed is that humans are the real monster.
This is basically the moral of 90% of all zombie fiction.
Crossed was always old shit dressed up with edge to compensate for how unoriginal it was

>>
>>101658687
it sort of depends, chimpanzees are fucked up because of the lack of resources which forced them to become uber-territorial.

Bonobos on the other hand are a branch of chimps that ended up somewhere with much more food and shit available so the're passive as shit, only moral downside is that they try to fuck literally ANYTHING with a pulse, ANYTHING.

Wouldn't say they have absolutely no inhibitions either.

Zombie fiction just began as Romero wagging his finger at social ills, but a specific one in each movie which at least gave them a central focus.

Every “of the” movie was just based around a frustration. Cold War mistrust and racial/political antagonism, public shallow desires and 80’s consumerism, the desire for power and control over others, class strife and economic rigidity, and the lack of care for the future and the selfish selfie culture of the 2000’s.

Kind of like how Elves are cunts outside of Tolkien because everyone ripped off the archtype without the in-universe reasons the quirks exist, ripping off Romero without actually tackling a specific issue just results in the message that humans are scum over and over and over.

There’s also the problem that zombies are mostly a threat during initial outbreak, and when you have people survive and learn to deal with it then you don’t have much left for tension other than asshole humans. Or mutated monsters like zombie vidya tends to do.
