Crossed: Badlands #14 - Preview

This week, Part 1 of a 5-issue arc of Crossed Badlands is released. Below is a preview. Art by Georges Duarte, script by yours truly.
Here's the Press release:

New Issue Preview - Crossed: Badlands #14
New Arc/Creative Team

David Hine (X-Men, The Darkness) and artist Georges Duarte join the ranks of the Crossed with their first horrifying Badlands arc: "The Golden Road." A hedonistic party is taking place in a writers retreat in famous author Gideon Welles' estate. Eight self-centered college students are secluded with no contact to the outside world in order to find the true meaning of their lives. But when the Crossed plague hits their town, they soon find the carefully constructed fantasy world is a far cry from the misery and agony of infection.

There is no hope. There is no help. There is only the Crossed.

Available with a Regular cover from Jacen Burrows, a Wraparound by Oscar Jimenez, a Torture by Gianluca Pagliarani, and a special Red Crossed Incentive by Burrows.
