Issue 25 has been a pretty quick one to write. Maybe the reason is just that I am getting faster at doing this....or maybe this was just a quick issue. The last two panels of the issue, though, have to set up the next mega-arc. Something on the scale of the next 24 issues.
A lot is hanging on them and I am finding myself stuck between flat out declaring the dramatic magnitude of the moment, or slyly downplaying it.
But, this is to be a revenge story, and I tend to think that subtlety and revenge do not often work well together.
Update: I just went and talked to my lovely girlfriend about how to play those last two panels. She opened my eyes to the completely obvious slam ending that this issue deserves.
It should be ready for you to read by tomorrow night.
