Stick in the mud!
This is the conclusion of this storyline, but is clearly more of a beginning than an end. Which makes sense given that this and upcoming storylines are being written with eventually being storylines within the same book in mind and this is the first storyline in it. The next full storyline will be more stand alone while still contributing to ongoing story threads.
I say "full" because the next storyline is short and something of a special circumstance. I will have more to say on the matter with the next comic.
