This is a story I've been thinking about since I first put Typical Strange together, years ago!
There are other tales to tell, but this was a big one. Wow, it feels like it's been a long haul...I can hardly believe the story's been told!
Next issue, the gang is back home again. See you at the Movie Pit!
*special thanks to jerrie for loaning out his characters...the story of Penelope's history and rescue was much cooler with Jay and Bernie added in!
See you again soon, all!

P.S. Reading the whole back catalog at this point is pretty daunting. This series doesn't need to be read from the beginning, though. The characters are all named in the top banner; that's all one needs to read each issue (or each page even). Of course, knowing the whole history gives a more dimensional experience I s'pose...

@El Cid - haha! Penelope seems to have gone out as a legend, but you're right...things have a way of coming back to haunt a person...big big thanks for the kind words, man!

Yeah, Rocky thought he was retired, and we all know how that turned out! Really good story, Banes! I haven't been able to go back and read all of your back-issues yet (just a few of the really early ones), but this is one of my faves so far. Penelope's a pretty interesting character.

@PPP - I waffled on that one...and had two versions of the final panel. But it turned out that after a short stay in the hospital, he recovered to continue smoking and eating BBQ into his 90's...as I went for the super-duper happy ending. Thanks for noticing the old fella, PPP! :D

I thought Burg died?

@jerrie - Thanks so much, jerrie! And you're surely right about Oscar and Penelope...but it can't be resolved now; where would I go after that? XD ...I gotta try and avoid that Moonlighting syndrome as long as possible...without getting annoying, that is...

@kawaii - Thank you so much, kawaii! BBQ and music! Good times!

@gullas - Since you say it, I'll admit that thinking about this ending, and now looking at it, provokes a strong emotional, tearful reaction in me. Thanks gullas!

@bravo - Thanks so much bravo...I remember finally deciding on this song for the ending about three months ago and couldn't wait to do this page. Hmmm...I'm not sure WHERE they are. I think Jay and Bernie's. :-D

Great taste in music. Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons! Jersey Boys. So are they in Bernie and Jay's backyard? Great story.
