This might sound a bit arrogant, but I actually got goosebumps back when I wrote this page.  Not because it’s necessarily an incredible piece of writing or anything, but rather because, after all the time I’d spent on this series, with this page the endgame was taking shape, and there was a real sense of impending finality here.  This sets the stage for the series finale, which is this three-way conflict coming to a head.  And when I saw Will draw the page, I got goosebumps all over again!

And this brings us to the end of Chapter 5.  Next week, we begin the final chapter of THE STANDARD.  But tomorrow we’ll have an intro and a look at the last issue’s cover to introduce the explosive climax.
