So I just got back from my lunch break and made sure to read Green Wake #10 first - in short, I thoroughly enjoyed the climactic final issue. For a series that cut its teeth on deliberate, careful plotting, veiled meanings and layer upon layer of subtext, the final issue was a tour de force of major plot twist after major plot twist until reaching a conclusion I could feel good about.

I could see how the master plan was condensed in practice. Each twist in Green Wake #10 must have been planned for the last page of an issue to be continued into the next. It's a shame we didn't get a chance to see the fully-formed ideas spread across several issues, but we got an end that made sense and worked.

Kurtis, I've always complimented you on your writing ability and creativity and that still holds. I also have to compliment you highly on how well you've handled the unfortunate end to this series - I know I wouldn't have handled it with nearly the level of maturity and grace that you have. In addition to creating a fantastic world filled with well-written and complex characters, that's another thing you deserve some big praise for.

Thanks so much, Euge. I've really appreciated the constant support and kindness you've shown both Riley and I for this series. Your words genuinely mean a lot and I hope that we both continue to entertain you with your hard earned dollars in Debris, Panzerfaust, and Rebel Blood!

Also, as I mentioned on Twitter earlier, both you and Riley can be proud of this series.

I loved the ending.

Sad to see this series end so soon. Enjoyed it very much. What other story arcs would you have done? Remorseful Nazi Soldiers?

Kind of branching off from the above.

Would we have seen more of Krieger and the rest of the supporting cast's backstory?

The next arc would've been told from Krieger's perspective. That was probably the one I was most excited about because we would've been able to tell you all about his work with Allied Intelligence during World War II and the woman who betrayed him to the Germans.

We hinted at it lightly in this arc as a setup for the third arc.

We also were going to keep the children as a constant mystery throughout the series, have them as a sort of boogeymen in the dark corners of the town, but unfortunately, that didn't happen.
