    Nice wrap up, I like the layout. Really shows where we're at right now.

    Can't wait until September...

    That was just mean, giving us so many cliffhangers right before your break. Still, from what I hear you do need a break and it's not like there's any more satisfying way to leave it, so I can't blame you. I eagerly await September 17th.

    Utterly amazing way to wrap up the story arc. I can't wait to see the identity of the off-panel speaker!

    Eugene Greenhilt: Gosh son, thanks so much for killing Xykon. My soul can rest easy now.

    Shut up Dad.

    That made me laugh so hard. Good to know that Roy might show up every once in a while he's dead.

    So, major plot threads:

    * Haley and Belkar hide out in the Azure City hinterlands, avoiding capture before they can raise Roy and recevie word from Vaarsuvius/Durkon

    * Hinjo leads the loyalist survivors to found a camp as they re-group, re-arm, and otherwise plan the recapture of their city.

    * The Red Voiced Villain (no hints who that is, really) undermines Hinjo, but the plot to overthrow him is just a cover for the Real Evil Doing

    * Redcloak, Xykon, and the Tsukiko begin working on the next gate (which we know to be Girard's.) Having O-Chul there makes things spicy.

    * The Linear Guild is hiding out, for the moment.

    Anything else? Are there no other characters alive?

    Great way to "sort of" finish things up.

    I am thinking the Cloister, spell will prevent any sort of magical communication between Team Durkon and Team Haley. Sucks for them...

    Given the "off the grid" remark, and the juxtaposition of Xykon's act right after Haley said she's confident that Durkon and V will be able to contact them...I imagine they've cut Azure City off into a pocket dimension of some sort. Something that will play hell with Haley and Belkar's ability to escape the city, or even to keep in magical communication with the rest of the Order.

    Wow what a wrapup.

    But where's the splash page? You can't end an arc arc without a splash page. I suppose the 1 page panels will do.

    Did anybody get what Xykon just did? Maybe he blocked all magical communication.
    fool'd you wid' Logic!

    The one I am really curios about is the one ordering the Diamyo Kabuto around. He has the special voice coloring similar to the Lich. It begs all sorts of questions.
