Crossed: Badlands #83

The bridge survivors might be beyond the grasp of the vile Crossed, but they're not out of the twisted murders' sight. Led by "The Surgeon" and her crew, an alliance of Crossed practice their torturous ways in plain view of the survivors, and the constant barrage of horror begins to form cracks in the once solid affiliation of the uninfected. But the survivors have even more to worry them, as Morgan and Olivia reveal that their zombie survival guide proves that the practices the group have employed could spell their doom if immediate changes aren't implemented.Available with Regular Cover by Christian Zanier, Wraparound Cover by Nahuel Lopez, Torture Cover by Raulo Caceres, C-Day Worldwide Cover by German Nobile, Art Deco Cover by Michael Dipascale, and Red Crossed Incentive Cover also by Zanier.

Providence #3

In this super-sized, ad-free, third issue, Alan Moore continues to re-define horror in this amazing tome of Lovecraftian influenced nightmares.  Providence is an amazing and unique work where Moore has written every cover, every single page, and every nuance of this work to create his most fully-realized vision to date.  In this issue, "A Lurking Fear",  Robert Black visits the Bogg's Refinery in Salem and is introduced to some most peculiar-looking local folks.  And a few denizens with very bad intentions.  Available with Regular, Pantheon, Portrait, Dreamscape Wraparound, Women of HPL, and a special Ancient Tome Incentive cover, all by collaborator Jacen Burrows.

You won't believe the cliff-hanger here, with answers to follow in 2016's Uber series 2!  Available with Regular, Wraparound, War Crimes, and Blitzkrieg Covers by Daniel Gete, and a Propaganda Poster Cover by Michael DiPascale.
