Hey everyone, I hope you're having a great week!

Putting this update together, we ran into a couple roadblocks which is why it's delayed. Fortunately, they are all addressed, and it should be okay now.

John has come to realize and accept that he is not the original Thomas. Robert's processing it, but it's a lot for even a Five to take in at once.

Anyway, see you next week for 298! I guess that means we'll be finishing on the first of October. Take care!

Oh, as a heads up, we're going to post a piece of fan art each day after we finish as a send off to the comic. Several people have already suggested that they might, one person has already come through. If you want to do up some art as part of the send off, please email me a link to the picture at gottogm (at) gmail (dot) com and we'll include it. It will last exactly as long as we have fan art to put up, and if we run into a day where we don't have any, then anything else beyond that may or may not get posted on this site. (I may still throw it up in bulk on the Facebook page).

Sorry, I'm just a little confused. Is the comic ending? Stupid question, as I assume the answer is yes, but just checking. If so, what next? Are all the unanswered questions going to be answered in three pages? CLEARLY I AM NOT PREPARED FOR THIS.

Simulacrum is my word of the day.

Makes me wonder what a Zombie Kids show would be like in the TOGM Universe. "Hey Kids this is Lurching Louie. The word of the day is Entrails, and the color of the day is Sanguine. Now let’s all lurch over to the Sammy the Skeleton's Cafe' for some Cortex Cookies."

@MatthewJA - Yes... 3 to go.. :) RZ would be a great choice :D

@neon5162 - I've been to Stonehenge :) It was kind of disappointing in that they had it fenced off and we weren't allowed to go wander amongst the stones :)

@Mina - Yes, we're ending the comic at 300. And no, the unanswered questions will not be answered in 3 pages :) There will be a lot left unanswered...

If after some time we haven't decided to come back and continue the story, I will answer them in some fashion.

@T.Gatto - It's such a fun word!

And kids in TOGM Universe are going to be as varied as the adults :D Age is no relevance to intelligence :)

@Guest - I can say for certain that this is not going to happen by 300. However, their relationship was one of the two major themes in my plan from 301 - 375.

Ok, as I fan of your story I must say: noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, don't stop it at 300, please.

As a fellow human being I understand that sometimes we need a break. Hope you guys can continue it some day :D

Oh the irony, having multiple clones of your now undead best friend and others, a wall of heads that you feed cloned brains through a straw, and creating this whole mess isn't messed up, but writing in your blood is? :P

Robert seems *remarkably* unpeturbed at the discovery of John's true identity...
Magravan edit delete reply
@binn05 - Thanks for the understanding :)

@asheswillfall - Don't judge :P

@aok666 - He's already come to grips with it once, to some degree. I'm trying to stuff in a little more than I intended, and I'm feeling the pinch a little bit ;)

I just can't see a satisfying ending in 2 strips. maybe if you can make it to 333 strips it would feel like a good way to end this comic. Even with the every one dies ending, it would satisfy because the comic would be half evil.
aok666 (Guest) edit delete reply
Three more strips, actually, and it might not be a forever end. If it is, we'll get the rest as a text story instead of a comic.
Speaking of which, what exactly IS the Green Stuff?
Also, comic 300 comes out on the day that I go back to classes at university - since my first lecture is in the afternoon, the final TOGM will be a sort of End Of Summer thing. Maybe. Depending on what time I wake up.

@Darr - I didn't promise a satisfying ending, just an ending :)

@aok666 - Yes, Darr didn't count on the third strip, which will render everything awesome :)

The Green Stuff will be addressed a bit more before 300, but the truth will only be hinted at. That's a portion of the second major arc I had planned for 301-375 ;)
Mina (Guest) edit delete reply
So have 301-375 just been completely eliminated and not happening in any format whatsoever? Or is there going to be a follow-up something in a different format?
Magravan edit delete reply
At present, all I am committing to is 300... I don't want people waiting on something that might not come any time soon, if at all.
