The Bitter-Sweet Nature of Endings

Sharing is caring!

There’s something Chew1Coverrevisedbitter-sweet about getting to the end of a great story. You get the pleasure of completion and of seeing what clever finale the creators had planned. But on the other hand, it’s over. No more of this. The end.

Chew, one of my favourite comic series, just reached its finish. It was as ending that came out of everything that came before. It was powerful and striking and utterly bonkers. It was the perfect finale to this excellent series.

I’m sad to see it go, but pleased that I got to see the end. And the other sweet side of this is seeing what John Layman and Rob Guillory will do next.

If you haven’t already, go read Chew. The whole story is there waiting for you now.

And if you have a favourite ending – bitter, sweet, or a bit of both – let me know what story it was in the comments below.
