Monkey Squad One #11. Page 20, "Apples & Origins Part 2" & Back Cover.

I fucking toiled for days over the ending of this issue.
See, that's Fake-Future Brendan from Fake-Future Earth coming through the Arch on the last page. Now, the last time we saw him was WAAAAAY back in MS1 #3 and as I was writing towards this final page I started to get more & more unsure. Most (easily 95%) of my readers started reading MS1 with Annual #1 and the Fake-Future Earth characters were from the first MS1 story, well before they started reading. How could Fake-Future Brendan's reappearance shock current readers if they didn't know he existed?
Well, for the most part it didn't.
But that's not really the part that matters.
What matters is, I told the story I felt I needed to tell, exactly the way I thought I should tell it. I also didn't spoon-feed my readers. This ending may have not affected every reader the way I would've hoped, but I know that for the readers that have been on board since the beginning, this scene was EPIC!
At least I thought it was bad-ass.
But the real shit pops off next week, when
For real, y'all, it's already too late. Everything is fucked up from here on out.
Thanks for reading!
P.S. My niece Olivia drew the back cover.
