    Seeing as how we're so close to the end, I can't help but speculate as to how all of this will end. I can't imagine any kind of happy ending, at least not for the whole town.

    For all the gorgeous artwork, it ends up amounting to a lot of talking heads, at least for the first half of this issue. With one issue left, I wish this would get to a point soon.
