poor jack...the more power he has, the greater a slave to the 'story' he seems to be.

That's the way goes our power. Past a certain point you find not more freedom but more constraints put on you. It's not that you can do less is that the more you try to do the more unintentional consequences show up so that you're not hurting those around you. It's kind of the same problem Superman has that if you try to do too much he's just as likely to destroy the world as he is to save it.

I think this is where Tomie rushes up and says, "no, you don't."

I understand the political climate is shaky in America, but artists should never have to apologize for their vision, even by proxy. Concessions are a slippery slope and unreasonable people will always keep pushing to take the whole mile. In the end you can end up with a diluted expression and a disloyal audience waiting for the first false move. That's not to say I know better than you as to what you should include in your work - that would be preposterous. It's just something that's been on my mind for a while now. Peace out...

This is following up on a plot point dropped about a year back, actually. Zandra mentioned it shortly after coming back to reality.

As Quin said, in this case the artist actually made the art style into a plot point. And since we're in the part of the story meant to tie up loose ends, it makes sense to address it.

Personally I want to know what's the deal behind Mr. Chalk. I never was able to figure him out...

AHA - at LAST! The TITillating boobsplaining has begun! I mean, it was pretty well hinted/revealed a page or two ago, but now it's being directly addressed. A recup of the situation, if you will. Make sure we're all abreast of the developments. You know. And lots more terrible puns, in that vein. Because I'm horrible, like that LOL.

Don't mind me - just trying to whistle in the darkness about the comic winding down to the end :( (sniff)

Well, puns happen to be my cup of tea. It's a type of humor I hold close to my breast. I hope more people will emBrace it!

Alternatively, get a few more perverted wizards to even things around. I could use some magic abs.

Joe I have a question. Did Sandra er Zandra burning him not just relieve her building angst but also help him keep his magic build up under control by giving his magic something else to do?

That hadn't occurred to me, but it makes sense. Though the magic build up wasn't a problem before the Magi-Net incident.

Kerinbot... how long had you been saving that one up?

Dear Zalabra... I mean Zalabar:
No saving necessary - that sort of thing just flies off my cuff. I'm pretty sure my BRAin operates on a "Pun First" communication protocol. If it CAN be said in a way that involve a pun it WILL be said in such a manner. It's when there ISN'T something punny to say that I get thrown for a curve. My mammary just works like that...

I'd better just stop. There's no other way to nip this in the bud... :D

...waitaminute. "How's Mike doing?" "Growing pains."

Was that a late-80's/early-90's sitcom reference?

Could you tell me how I can get my lamps to work by harnessing ethereal energy out of the air? I think it would really save on my energy bills.

Or do they function via LED's (light emitting demons)?

I have been reading your comic from the beginning and it was moment similar to this when I realized that you were telling a story and it was no longer a joke a day. Joe you are one of the best story tellers I have had the pleasure of reading. I am glad the story is going to finish but also sad as well. It has been a long journey. Thank you. I look forward to reading this until the end.

Just need to create a new spell for it.

Wow that would stink.
Every time you go to the trouble of getting sized, and finding some bras (and pants) that fit right, that you like, it's time to go and do it all over again. And again. And again.

Not to mention the back pain some people would be experiencing.

Not to mention that there comes a point where bras that fit become hard to find. Not a lot of call for H-cups, and yet I do know someone who needs them. And her bras are $45 per.

...Frankly, that is exceptionally cheap for a good bra. I know plenty of C-DDs who pay 60-90 for something that isn't actively painful or wears out in six months.

An explanation after all! Huzzah! Turns out A Wizard Did It.
Poor Jack. All his actions end up having terrible fallout.

This is absolutely beautiful, Joe England. The best page you've written yet. I don't know about drawn, I'd have to think about that, but this is pure honesty. What a piercing light in these dark times.

...Omigod. Did you actually hand-draw that insane wallpaper in the house? For each panel separately?

I can't help but wonder if that single-minded devotion to creating an image is driving you out of the comic...

Awww. I have to say, I was a bit unsure about the cheesecake plot line when it started, and I know there were a few readers who felt the same way. But storytelling is a bit like Olympic gymnastics to me - the crucial point is whether you stick the landing. And to tie this into Jack’s character and his issues and arcs from day one... that’s a pretty fantastic landing. Thank you Joe! I think this is a touching and meaningful way that you get to have your cake and eat it too. An interesting way to highlight character and plot plus drawing lots of boobs!

I’ve also very much appreciated the care you’ve shown in how your female characters are posed. For all their curves, the framing has never shown them as pin-ups. The art has always been working to show the story, not their bodies.

Finale

At this time, I'd just like to comment on the (probably unintentional) poignancy of a bearded Jack, who looks a lot like Joe's avatar, claiming that everything is his fault and he hurts everyone.

Setting aside any real life implications, that has a lot to say about the relationship between a creator and his creations, and is especially impactful to me when the comic is so close to ending.

Interesting how it looks like he's handing himself a magic stream between panels 1 and 4.
