I had forgotten we were near the end of the year. This should be pretty darn interesting.

Oh dear... who knows where this is leading. I'm excited!

Also, love the detail with Peanut nonchalantly waving goodbye.

Edit: To be continued. Son of a...

Just... words can't express the number of expletives I'm feeling.

"To be continued..." implies first intermission?

Fox is pretty adorable there. He looks kinda nervous. What a great friend :D

In a way I agree but while we've been left on a cliffhanger think of everything that has happened so far! Things we've waited years for! Fox finds out the truth about Joel, Pete gets an avatar, cerberus comes for the watch.....

Peanut's rather nonchalant about this. Then again, there's not much that phases him.

So Joel is granted an audience in Heaven? That should be rather interesting, but Pet or Human Heaven? I'm actually guessing Human, considering, well, he's human.

Don't worry, Fox, maybe the bliss that is Heaven will clear your mind of all of the crazy happenings.

And "To Be Continued"? I'm guessing that means we're getting our one-offs. Looking forward to it.

Looks just like on the notes, don't it,
this Stairway going up to Heaven?
The place you have to put your case
the spot where hope to Mortals is given.
So roll on up and stroll to the gods,
both you and your little Fox friend!
Go play in the sun and your fun's begun
in the court where justice will never end.
Our job;'s just to show you the way
like I used to receive at the river.
The stairway's better than Charon's boat
like Steak is better than Liver.
You're on the way to save your gal.
Go on! Go get her! Good luck, pal!
Go on! Go up! Get out of here!
Oh, and by the way? See you next year!

I was expecting an elevator, or something a bit more silly. But classical stairways are usually fun. I am beginning to wonder what happens if you do not keep your hands, feet, or souls inside at all times. Do you have to start all over again?

A year ago I wrote:So here´s a funny fact: in almost all the "End of the Year" strips, Joel/King is present in them:

Year 1
Year 3
Year 4

And now Year 5, the only exception to the rule is Year 2

So Rick, was this planned or is it just a funny coincidence ?
Year six

Yeah, Im going with planned

Hmm, I guess I missed that one (then again powering through all of them at once might explain how I missed a few). That one is kind of sad and sweet. Rick does a good job on these.

Bravo, Rick! Excellent work, both writing and artistically !

Now the question....will it be a week or two of one offs and then the continuation of this story....or a week or two of one offs, another arc, more one offs, and ''then'' the continuation of this story? Or will Rick show us the duel in the mean time?

This must be how NextGen fans felt that summer with "Resistance is futile, Number One" "Mr Worf...fire!" TO BE CONTINUED.....

So there will be a brief break then?
I see, well I know it will be worth the wait.

I think you are right. Now we must wait for the conclusion.

Well, I wasn't expecting the first intermission to happen so soon, this seems like everything is too quick... Oh well, it's for the best.
But though seriously, why do all the years have to end with King/Joel? It's just seems demeaning for the main cast, at least Peanut was here for this one.

My, it must be told
What a change in status,
But lo and behold,
We're currently in hiatus!
A nice little pause
To make us all think
And coalesce our thoughts,
Like a huge kitchen sink!

A hound forged in flames,
Now living Heaven
Is annoyed by the games
Of a glorified blue raven.

Our heroes have proven
Worthy of the Eternal Kingdom,
For every pooch goes to Heaven,
As well as some Klingon.

A land filled with pleasure
Is the Blessed Realm Above,
But I bet Joel's thinking
"Will I recover my love?"

My, it must be told,
What a change in status,
But lo and behold,
We're currently in hiatus!
A nice little pause
To make us all think
And coalesce our thoughts,
Like a huge kitchen sink!

Copper keeps reading,
As Diss keeps things stable.
Sleet is aproving,
As Foxstar controls the rabble.

Ryussuta thinks with Stu,
I bet they're once again drawing.
Gren talks with TheOne
About Bino's recent mauling.

Argent wants to say something astute,
valerio writes a fanfic that might fit,
And I make a half-hearted tribute
To a certain Halfwit.

My, it must be told,
What a change in status,
But lo and behold,
We're currently in hiatus!
A little nice pause
To make us all think
And coalesce our thoughts,
Like a huge kitchen sink!

Now back to the story!
As Peanut waves goodbye,
Our heroes walk stairs of Glory
Sprayed with golden dye.

Fox is completely confused
While Joel thinks on Bailey,
He is utterly stressed,
As he finds weird stuff daily.

Ever since the proposition
Their love has seemed quite real,
Though in his human condition,
Is that even legal?

My, it must be told,
What a change in status,
But lo and behold,
We're currently in hiatus!
A nice little pause
To make us all think
And coalesce our thoughts,
But they're all gone in a blink!
20th century fox? Given that this is the year 2019, that fox must be dead by now. Sadface! : (

Those aren't anywhere near as fun for this sort of thing. Plus, if someone was going to foot the bill for a golden stairway so long we can't even see the other end, I certainly think they'd want to use it.

I think most likely because Joel/king is argueably the most dramatic character in the strip, so it's thematically easier to make big endings and or cliffhangers with him. I think the only way to get as fulfilling a cliffhanger with Peanut would be something along the lines of Grape deciding to follow in King/Bailey's pawsteps and announcing that she and Max are getting married, with Earl giving her permission to live with Max's family - leaving Peanut to try to come to terms with the changes.

That would be really dramatic and would be an interesting arc to follow.

I wonder though what is going to happen with Tarot and Peanut now though.

Things doesnt look good for Joel.

Just look at it:
* Kidnapping a dog
* Escaping the law
* Kidnapping the exact same dog AGAIN (have fun explaining that he tagged along willingly, if Fox claims that he did we all know that its called the stockholm syndrome)
