Maybe a "Signs" ending?
« on: 07 Aug 2008, 22:36 »

Am I the only one that sees a rather convoluted connection between Marten and Hanners?

The man is pretty much pulling her from her OCD single-handedly while everyone else adds fuel to the fire.

And here, after all this time, I thought Marten and Faye would end up together....

To quote the Robot Chicken version of M. Night. S....

Just so long as it doesn't end up in a Dallas ending.      :evil:

As bad as a Dallas ending would be, it still wouldn't be as bad as a St. Elsewhere ending.

I wouldn't mind an "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark" ending.

Hooray for melting nazi faces!

I'm pretty much cool with any ending, just as long as it doesn't get all Doctor Horrible up in this bitch.

I don't think Marten and Hanners would be too far of a stretch.

Now, Marten and Sven getting together would be pretty epic.

Would you rather have the comic just stop without any sorta climax because Jeph has stopped for some reason? Or maybe you'd like a bunch of other assholes to take his place and fuck the comic up?

I am kind of hoping for an eventual Bobbins-style ending.  ie: Jeph gets sick of writing QC but still likes webcomicking and starts up a new webcomic that takes some elements/people from QC and starts fresh.  Perhaps a change of setting and perhaps a large change of characters at first with a gradual re-introduction of some known characters.

When you put it that way...

Guys, we all know it will end when hordes of zombie kittens invade the city and kill everyone except for Hannelore because they think she's too cute to kill. And when zombie kittens think you're cute? You've got something going your way.

Or Bloom County-style ending. It ends, but he keeps re-using the characters in 'new' comics.

my favorite webcomic  used to be riboflavin. That ended in a half drawn cliffhanger, with the majority of the cast in america attacked by elves or some shit.

Anyway, I hope it doesn't end like that.

My favourite was QC until Jeph died. Wait, that was faked? Damn, you wiki. My favourite is QC, again. I missed it in that two seconds I was away.

Who says there has to BE an ending? Jeph makes his living off this, I don't think he wants the gravy train to stop anytime soon.

But I'd also be fine with a spin-off, maybe a "five years in the future" thing where Dora runs a chain of CoD, the band's made it big, and the comic follows a group of baby hipsters working at a CoD franchise. Either that, or QC Babies (a la Muppet Babies).... first idea's better.

No please to the QC babies.  ..whoops, that wasn't supposed to rhyme.

And yeah, there doesn't have to be an ending.  It's like real life, it never ends.  Yeah, that does mean that there won't be a good climax, but who cares?

I guess what I'd like to see is QC draw to a gradual close, with the characters getting their own conclusions and happy endings. The comic drops down to a 2 days a week update while in the other 3 days Jeph draws something new and exciting that we'll all love even more.

Better than it ending when Jeph dies, a half drawn QC strip number 10,354 on his hospital bedsheets.

How does it end? YOU decide! Also, if you lick your screen, it'll taste like cherry.

Now go wash off your screen, dummkopf.

I would actually love that. If done right, of course. I would guess Jeph would spend two months tying everything up, resolving all the characters' issues with each other, giving everyone their happy ending, and just when they all get together in the last comic...

More of a "Something Positive" ending, but that'll be it.
