It's time to celebrate the insanity that is Cosmos' contribution to the Comic Fury Crossover Exchanges of 2019, with the latest chapter of the Cosmos Crossover Crisis! As before, we're presenting all the exchange stories we did so the wider comic-reading world can see them without having to trawl through the Crossover Exchange site; but this time around, instead of dumping 'em on you in one big slab, we're spacing them out through the year in amongst all our regular Cosmos material. The first exchange of 2019 was, as per usual, the Valentines Day extravaganza - which had an interesting new twist: our characters would be going on double blind dates, with a pair of mystery suitors! For added ironic effect, I chose my participant based on the fact that she would never, ever willingly volunteer for an event of this nature: our resident gamer grrrl (and violence-prone cynic) Myra Cunningham. Those of you who have been major participants in the exchanges may be looking at the above page and going 'Hang on a minute - I don't remember seeing this intro during the exchange! Is this new material?' And you'd be right: for the benefit of the aforementioned unwashed masses, I've crafted an all-new beginning to the story, to provide some much-needed exposition.... and justification for Myra's foul mood during the events of the story proper! The chap with the top hat is a returnee from the first Cosmos story of the New-school era, The Great Comic Con Caper - used largely to have someone emcee-ing the pre-valentines party who wouldn't have his name drawn out in the lottery - but also because he was the only guy who had a hat large enough to hold everyone's names! And you have to love the expression on Zoe's face in the second-to-last panel: that is the grin of a master prankster handed a golden opportunity on a silver gilded tray....
