Will Robson joins us as artist again for one final scene here, as we witness the moment where Gilbert Graham passed the torch onto Alex Thomas.  This has a certain poignancy to it now, of course, given that we know how it all ended up.  But it’s a key piece of the puzzle slotted into place that unlocks the mystery of various characters’ motivations and the chronology of the world.

One week from today, I’ll be at New York Comic Con!  You’ll find me at the ComixTribe table, selling – among other things – the Ultimate Collection of THE STANDARD!  Really excited to get my hands on this book and to start sharing it with people.  If you’ve been following this webcomic, come along and say hi, I’d love to hear your thoughts on reading the series in this format.
