For my money, the story wasn't a new take on anything. For some folks, that might have been their first look at that kind of story pattern. More differences in taste though, I suspect.
    Maybe a question of generation then.

    That's my take on it.
    Alternatively, you might be right and they might indeed be outsiders, in which case they would only have to expect they will die, which for them equals cessation of existence.
    So... seven books total... which book are we at now, and where did it start?

    The scouring of the Shire never happened. That's right. After reading books I, II, and III, I stopped reading when the One Ring was thrown into Mount Doom. The story ends there. Nothing worthwhile happened afterwards. Middle-Earth was saved.

    We're in book 7 - and it started back here, with the previous one being a "OOTS will return on..." strip

    Given that The Giant has implied that the book might run long, I am expecting between 300 and 500 more strips before it is finished. For comparison, 300 strips ago was about when Girard's Gate exploded, and 500 strips ago was about when the Order first arrived in Bleedingham.

    Hm. That would mean enough space for two arcs plus some denouement.
