The penultimate issue of David Lapham and Raulo Caceres' Crossed: Psychopath is out today, issue seven. That's it up above. Here's the solicits and covers. Yes, covers, this is an Avatar book.
Harold Lorre has started showing his true colors and proven to be the most sadistic of predators. But with two Crossed clans locked in a battle to the death nearby the quickly-thinning band of survivors is running out of places to hide! Join us as David Lapham and artist Raulo (Capt Swing) Caceres descend into a story about the worst aspects of human behavior, a tale of unspeakable evils, violent assaults on both mind and body, and of longing for death and the sweet release it will bring. When civilization crumbles in one terrifying moment; when people are gleefully breaking into unthinkable acts of violence all around you; when everyone you love has died screaming in agony: What do you do? There is no help. There is no hope. There is no escape. There are only the Crossed.
I feel sullied. So to start as I mean to go on, Lady Death #12 from Boundless, also shipping today. Here's a preview…

Two life-or-death battles within the ruins of Pallodun will have shockingly different outcomes, and their unexpected conclusions will forever change the fate of the rebellion against the vile Death Queen! Beneath the ground, Lady Death fights for her life against the horror of Stigmata, the villainess composed of sentient, living blood. But how can Lady Death possibly prevail over an untouchable enemy who can infect and possess her victims with but a single drop of her own blood? The mighty Wargoth, meanwhile, faces a decisive battle of his own, as Death Queen's chief assassin Behemoth confronts the rebellion's surrogate leader. This time, however, Behemoth's powers have been boosted by the magical energy of the revenge-seeking Satasha, who was once Wargoth's closest ally. Blood will fly, flesh will fail, and before this night is done, one will die in the most shocking LADY DEATH climax yet!
And a couple of covers too!
