I should probably have mentioned this earlier but it did slip my mind. A few years ago when we printed the first book of Pictures of You, I was incredibly unhappy with the original prologue and I drew a new version of it which is the prologue that is on the site. The old one is burned and doesn't exist anymore. Not much changed, a little pacing and some dialogue. The biggest change was that Peter left the apartment through a door to this staircase instead of through a window to a fire escape. The main reason for this was Sam and Lauren weren't people who would have a fire escape, they would have a staircase. This isn't shitting on fire escapes as much as a statement on Sam and Lauren.
A stranger approaches, are they friend or foe?

Once again in the final book of the series, I developed a whole cast of characters I would have loved to explore more when I came to Big Sister. Is this the third time or the fourth? Again, of course, these groups aren't the point of the story, just the flavour and the atmosphere of time moving on and the meetings and partings of growing up, and I don't have room to give. Also, I don't want to be doing this story for another 13 years, and the line has to be drawn. Still, Big Sister Comics Cafe seems like a pretty great place to spend some time.

Chapter Four, The Unwritten Tomorrow
This is one of those chapters that I looked forward to drawing, and of course it was filled with emotions for me. I don't want to say too much, but here we go.

This wine store was based on an actual wine store in Toronto.
Madock, you say ancient, but I can walk into a T-Mobile and get one of those today. I used one until a couple years ago, surprising no one.

Nicole, I bet she's nice.
Chapter 3 ends.
I'm going to recommend re-reading (or reading for the first time if you skipped it) one of the Snapshots from so many years ago, a photocomic by Vin Tabulka and myself that exists in the timeline between this page and the last. When it posted originally, it was more of a mystery-builder for most people, but I suspect it will have a much different feel reading it now. I've always been really fond of it, Vin did such a great job.

As of this page, everything is the future.
I am still a little messed up from these last few pages. I've told the entire flashback now, I brought it around. I did it. The story isn't done, of course, still a few chapters left, but the circle is complete and all those questions about how we got here are answered.

I feel proud, I feel exhausted, I feel strangely emptied, and with the final pages in sight I wonder if it's all been a massive waste of the dying embers of my youth, but no one can take it away from me.

I did it.
I believe this is where we came in.
A little more naked Andy, one more time for the beefcake.
Ha ha!

Personally, I'd love a shop like this. Any shop where they appreciate Love & Rockets is probably a shop for me.

I went back and forth about the phone, but in the end, it didn't make sense for Peter not to have one at this point in his life, but you can bet he still has problems with text messages, and there's no internet.

Hold onto your seats. For real, some of you might fall out of them.
Webcomics are just comics you put on the web, no difference. Glad you enjoyed the ride! We're almost at the end.
Andy is currently at work, though.
Chapter 2 ends.
You think we're there, but not quite. See you next chapter.
One of my big regrets is that I wasn't able to dive a little more deeply into The Dailies. It just interrupted the flow of this part of the story. There's a lot to these characters in my head, I toy with writing more of their journey later, but who knows? Maybe. Probably not. I couldn't help but drip out a little of this element, though.
You can tell how serious the band is because their jam space is in an actual home and not a rented storage unit a block down from Crack Corner.
