We've come to it at last… The Christmas Rush! Oh, and the final Mike And Mindy comic. This is a day I've dreaded for a while, but know it had to come. Plenty of thoughts are running through my head right now, but we'll get to that later. For now, let's enjoy the grand finale...
Talk about a "Smashing" end! I struggled for while with this. Should it be a gag ending? A happy ending? Have the entire series just be a dream of a kid in the hospital? I was about to give up when I remembered an old song from Eric Idle about life and its bright sides. So yeah, Mike and Mindy have a happy ending by avoiding a gag. When in doubt, search Monty Python out!
And so it ends. I want to thank you all so much for the love and support I received these last five years. I honestly never thought I'd get this far, but these goofy kids that came to me out desperation just wouldn't keep quiet. To have gotten this far on a monthly schedule with characters that don't talk is certainly something and it is hard to walk away. But the honest truth is I really have run out of ideas for them. Having been a creator long enough now, I understand the "Quit while you're ahead" mentality much better. It's never good to overstay your welcome, and I'd rather end Mike And Mindy now while they're still funny and fresh than just keep going with subpar stories and let them get stale. I care about them too much.
Mike and Mindy will never truly be gone. There are still several book projects and animated adventures in the works. And they WILL get one more CRAZYVERSARY month in February so that they can float off into the sunset in style.
In the meantime, many hints have been dropped in recent months about the coming of a New CRAZY series. And if you're a CRAZY Patron, you'd already know it, but for those that aren't, here's the title of the new comic! Brace yourself for...
What is Peppertown you ask? It's the wild tale of a lonely slacker named Joe who inadvertently adopts a wild little girl from outer space named Wendy! Together, they form a bond and have many wild adventures! Y'all have already had brief glimpses of Joe and Wendy, but the real fun begins in January! So strap in and hold on to your bloomers when Peppertown arrives!
That's all for this week folks. Next week, Mushrooms gets it's final farewell and offers even more of a glimpse into the new series. You might even see an old pal or two, so be sure to stop on by. And also, with the Holidays approaching, be sure to think of others this season. It doesn't take much to help someone in need. Make a difference and donate, be it food, money, clothes or toys. Help others this Christmas. Take care and I'll catch y'all later.
