This is an okay issue. We keep getting what feels like more and more setup without any real sort of payoff. I just want something satisfying in and of itself at this point.

I really want to like this series and I do believe it could’ve been really sweet had it continued past this issue, but i feel like so much of the story is unresolved (the whole lab subplot just… disappears) and I just cannot forgive how sloppy the editing is throughout the whole series. This issue was definitely sweet and gave a satisfying conclusion to the romance arc but so SO much fell shor more

Strong issue but is already proving that it maybe could’ve been a 5-6 issue run to let some of the story breathe. Some weird jumps where I had to figure out if I missed a page or not, but overall pretty solid and fun.

Comics don't move me often, but this arc, and specifically this issue, really struck a chord. It was a beautiful and heartbreaking ending to this little story. If this is the way they keep going, I feel like this will cement itself as one of my favorite books I've ever picked up.
