Hi folks, I'm going to have to ask everyone to refrain from posting full song lyrics in the comments. I appreciate the enthusiasm, but there are copyright infringements involved that I don't want to cross. Thanks.
It's like the old saying goes, "Awkward anxiety loves company."
Chapter One, Heard Ya Missed Me Now I'm Back
This chapter went through a lot of title changes. Come to think of it, this whole book went through a lot of title changes over the years too. I won't list them, but this one suits it best, both for the chapter and the book.
This is the last Pictures of You playlist I'm ever going to make, so you're damned right I went overboard. I hope everyone (or anyone) has enjoyed the PoY soundtracks, been able to find some new bands, or even just been able to groove out a little. Personally, I grooved out a lot. Everyone have fun, everyone wang chung with the soundtrack for Everything's Alright Forever part four, For Better or Worse

Book Eight, Part Four - For Better or Worse
Now we're into the final stretch of Pictures of You. I've got the emotions, as you could imagine. I've been working on this story for almost 20 years, posting it online for almost 13, and we're almost at the end. I'm both looking forward to and dreading it. For better or worse, the story is nearly done. Let's wrap it up.
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.
Chapter 4 ends.
Here we are. The future is wide open. Part of me wanted to end the comic here, but there's a little more of the story that needs to be told.
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.
