When Doc started running the gauntlet at the White Pyramid I was afraid we were in for months of a boss rush, ending with King Radical as the very last foe to kick the dust. And that would have been so boring. I'm so glad I was wrong.

I always figured the strip would finally end when he either became happy with the world and his place in it, or he died.

So this is the Best Ending.

Also he died a whole bunch and it never really ended...

Devil's Candy started selling books, which is great, but they're 20 USD each for one chapter at a time. Eeeeesh.

To be fair, that's what I expect of her in most cases.

I've yet to be disappointed!

Awful Hospital: possibly the only context that makes "...Just remember your goal... ...as I break your ENTIRE SKELETON" not just some excessive threat but also a means to an end and the absolutely horrifying realization that one can reverse some internal logic.

Looks like a border skirmish between Cresce and Alderode. War has been brewing between those nations for a while now in the background.

And yay! More Unsounded!

That's about as perfect a final page as the series could possibly get.

I like that he took the last name Goodrich. Now we can debate forever if it's in reference to Chuck, the guy who saved his life multiple times, or Radical, the guy who ruined his life multiple times.

EDIT: OR MAYBE SINCE CHUCK GOODRICH IS FROM THE FUTURE, MCNINJA TAKING THE NAME GOODRICH MEANS THAT HE'S THE FIRST MEMBER OF THE GOODRICH FAMILY TREE AND IS THE FATHER/GRANDFATHER/GREAT GRANDFATHER/WTFEVER OF THE EVENTUAL CHUCK GOODRICH THAT WILL EVENTUALLY TRAVEL BACK TO THE PAST TO SAVE THE WORLD!

Nah probably not.

Still tho.

It's only got three more days to go, and it HAS reached its goal, but everyone should back the Kickstarter for Let's Speak English just because it's a pretty funny comic created by a very nice person.

But freaky all-powerful AIs are a long-running part of QC. It's kinda baked into the format.
