I went back and started reading 'The End' from part one, and I think the story actually reads quite nicely when taken together. I've really enjoyed this final story, although as Berlinknives brought up, I would have liked more resolution to the "furry octopus thing," and although I'm sure we'll see Hortense at least once (possibly going off into the sunset with Doc or something, a la Dark Knight Rises), it would have been nice to see more of her. (Also I thought it was strange that Sparklelord got brought back just to disappear.)
'Course, if Hastings had some final twist in mind that kept the story going for a little longer, I wouldn't complain either, though it doesn't look like we're going in that direction.
But all in all, I think 'The End' has been a really enjoyable callback to all the things I loved about this comic. I'll be sad to see it go, and I wish Hastings the best in his career.
