As I said on the first post for this issue, originally issue 5 was broken up into two issues (Vol.1 and 2). I had run out of time to get the whole thing done in time for FALLCON ’08, but had fortunately written the ‘TO BE CONTINUED” gag in the scripting stage, so it seemed like a pretty good break point. From page 25 on the story takes a very sharp turn away from comedy/”action” into back story and historical fiction. That’s another good reason the “KILL BILL” covers worked so well–this is one story, but it has two very different beats. Prepare yourself for the even talkier than usual second half.
ALSO: As you may be aware THE FINAL EPISODE OF ‘LOST’ AIRS ON SUNDAY (MAY 23rd)!!! To commemorate not only this event, but our mutual love of everything LOST that has come before, cartoonist MATT CHICOREL and I did a couple of pin-ups. Here’s the one Matt drew and I inked…and it’s freaking awesome!
So long, LOST.
