General: Taste Test is a sort of preview sampler comic-format magazine preceding the publication of the first issue of Crossed Plus One Hundred. It includes articles by Alan Moore, an AM script excerpt, and sample Gabriel Andrade drawings from CPOH1. Photos of most of CPOHTT posted here. Taste Test had a relatively small print run: 3,000 Human Flavor, 3,000 Crossed Flavor, 500 Signed Edition, 350 VIP, and 250 CGC. As of January 2019, they are available for purchase via the publisher’s website.

Below is the CPOHTT contents. Specific details gleaned from CPOHTT are in annotations for CPOH1.
