    I have to say, this rendering did make me realize a lot more plot holes than I originally came away from the movie with. It's one of the only things that I've laughed that much out loud at work ever…many thanks to the author

    The ending of Lone Justice: Crash! reminds me of the ending of Alan Moore's V for Vendetta, that of which I will not comment in order to prevent any newcomer from reading V for Vendetta and enjoying it.But kudos to Tinnell and Wheatley on such a comic.

      Hummmmm – I'll have to go back and read V for Vendetta again – I have no idea how it ended. I don't think I've read it since the original publication. In fact – I might not have read it after WARRIOR folded.

    Thanks to everyone who read and supported LJ:C these many – MANY – months. And thanks to everyone at ComicMix for giving us a great platform upon which to build the story and to IDW for believing in the book and putting it into print. And while I'm thanking people I'd be remiss if I didn't thank Mark Wheatley for being such a sterling friend, mentor and collaborator. I'm hopeful we can get into trouble for years to come. And finally – to Russ – man, your hunches were waaay too close waaay too much of the time about where the story was going – but it was fun to see how your mind worked – you'd make a great editor.Bob Tinnell – still anonymous…

      Bob, I need a job. I really enjoyed reading Lone Justice throughout this last year. It was consistently well written, well drawn, well executed. It was easily the one feature on ComicMix I looked forward to reading most each week. I was worried that this story was going to resolve itself the Shakespearean way, like Hamlet or Romeo and Juliet, everybody you care about dies. It's a very conclusive way to end something, but not very optimistic. And in some ways that's how your wrapped stuff up. Except…I can see the parallels between the ending of Lone Justice and V. You both have a group of people dawning a mask to stand up for an ideal. But I think the LJ story has more similarities with the "Black Hood." Lone Justice seems to be a mantle that gets passed along or shared. Sort of like the Green Lantern Corps!The fact that Jean carries on the mission of "Lone Justice" is interesting. When I first saw LJ shot and most likely on death's door, I thought you might continue the Lone Justice legacy by having Jean be pregnant … that she would pass on the heritage of her child's father as well as the costume. Who knows, maybe that happened too.Thanks, Bob. Thanks, Mark. Thanks to Mike Gold and the ComicMix staff. Through the storm of financial crisis, Lone Justice stayed on a steady course to excellence. Good luck with the dead tree version. If I can get some work, maybe I can afford it.

        Thanks for the comments Russ – and for agreeing to pull back on your speculations for the story these last few weeks. As Bob says, we were sure you would be able to project the ending before we could run it.You may have the aptitude to be an editor – but unfortunately editors are walking the streets since so many newspapers and magazines are ending publication. We have an excellent proof reader now exactly due to that situation. Fortunately you have a nice variety of talents – so I'm sure you will land a job soon. Perhaps you'll let me play one of your songs on my FREQUENCY radio show?

    Hello, Bob and Mark! Josef Rother here, the German Ninja Pirate from San Diego Comic-Con, and I would like to congratulate you on another great story. You kept me spellbound all through the ride and delivered an ending that will continue to resonate. Ten stars out of five. You guys are two of the best storytellers working in comics today.
