The deeper story of Genchu and Hirotomo is pretty tragic, and might make a solid prequel story! The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of revisiting it in the future to flesh the narrative out and paint the full range of forces working against Hirotomo to bring about his downfall. But I dare not promise that, because if I ever do come back to it, it’ll be so long after the comic has ended that no one will remember what the story is a prequel for anyway! Or I guess that just means it has to be good enough of a story to stand on its own (unlike the Star Wars prequels)!
We’ve got plenty of great questions for the NN4B Final Thoughts And FAQs podcast, which Joe and I will be recording Monday evening, so it should be ready to post along with the final page next week!
I haven’t seen Avengers Endgame yet, but I’ll likely have seen it by next/last update, so I’ll probably have opinions on that movie. How fitting to end the comic with an Endgame post!Published on by Alex Kolesar
