As correctly predicted in the comments section.

There will be a chapter cover tomorrow, and the next full page will fly Wednesday night CDT. It will be the first of five epilogues. Thank you for reading.

Wow. That hit like that Aegis guy's baton.

Bravo!

Now to see these epilogues, because you are a master of the post-game...

No spoiler here, there will be five four pages addressing what happens to the main characters.

Some will be more substantial than others... I almost decided to just to a pinup for Tona's page, but I think she deserves some time on the soap box.

And the person who picks up that phone runs their thumb across the screen rearming the bomb.

Eh, Aegis strikes me as pretty good about policing up incident sites, so you can assume that phone is going in a lead-lined bag momentarily.

Funny you should mention "greek", considering the topics of the next two pages.

Just because you've got a deadman's trigger does mean you need to use it.



Cough.

Got one more coming in prolly a couple weeks, the last real page in this work, and I'll be surprised if that one doesn't move you more than any of these others.

I wasn't expecting anything, but it makes sense that Eric coming here with (what sure seems like) a poorly thought-out mission objective list leads to failure.

"Failure"

yup

This was the snazzy, totally classy version of the "going down to my ex-wife's wedding reception with a shotgun" story that seems to pop up in the national news every couple months weeks.

If that's seriously your inspiration and what you were trying to do here I salute your chutzpah. That said, it makes a confusing end for a tale that starts with international terrorism, and crosses through medical necromancy and corporate gang-warfare en route to one of the more stupid and pointless recurring stories of modern Usania.

Much like the author, Eric wasn't sure of what he really wanted until it was too late.

Next time I'm staffing the overall script with Prof before I start drawing pages.

This is an emotionally charged page! It feels like no-one is a winner here.

I don't think Eric's mom would like being called that.

Although the title kinda fits.

I hope this resolution was to your liking.
