If you are a huge fan of The Blob and The Thing, you’ re definitely need to read this frightening installment. This blob-thing grows in tremendous size and sucks you inside. The flesh-eating creature uses its own victim when it feels the need to talk.

4) The Horror!

Writer Becky Cloonan (Gotham Academy) has the perfect word to describe her monster and it’s so unprintable. You’re definitely going to go “Oh damn!” when you look the word up and urban dictionary shows up. Cloonan definitely has a twisted sense of humor and I love it!

3) The Artwork!

Co-writer/artist Andy Belanger sure loves mixing the sci-fi action and horror in this fantastic issue. Everyone grabs their guns and starts shooting with their never-ending stash of bullets. The characters in this issue die in the most gruesome ways!

2) The Psychedelic Colors!

Colorist Lee Loughridge uses red and orangish tones to highlight monster’s massacre. In a two pager, the hideous creature grows in size, sucking in more victims, and sinks to different levels. Each floor has a different and distinguishable color as the terror continues.

Full of gross-out terror, Southern Cross #14 is an absolute must-read read for sci-fi/horror fans. The Southern Cross series is a must-have for your comic book collection!
