Here is a preview of the 2nd story in The End #5.

Is there any way to survive the coming end of the world? The theme for this issue is Survival. Previously, people escaped onto a space station, but now one man has a radical idea. He thinks he can escape the destruction of the world and be the only remaining person left alive by simply going into the deepest caves. Left with only his thoughts, he starts his decent.

The End #4 & #5 are nearly complete, so I am going to post to you a page from the first story drawn by Sonia Liao. A group of astronauts hijack a space shuttle and make off for a space station, where they hope to avoid all the comets completely and return to Earth later. Now, they are still alive, but was survival at any cost worth the price?

Wow, I am loving this new Embed feature on DeviantArt; the art scales to the webpage itself instead of expanding out so much that I have to lower the file size then repost it.

The End #4 is nearing completion. Here is a look at the intial sketch of The End #4’s cover.

This is a preview of The End #3’s second story: Must Play, featuring the original pencils and the finished page. In this story, David has only one goal the last week of his life: play all the video games he can. Yes, this is a comedy in my end of the world series.

If the world was going to end in seven days, how would you spend your last week?

This is the concept behind “The End”, as each story deals with how normal, everyday people react (or not react) to the end of their world.

This issue contains 2 different tales:

“Crush” – Tom and Julie have been friends forever. Now, their world (and high school) is ending, though most don’t believe this is ‘for real’. Will Julie be able to finally confess her love to Tom, or has his heart already been taken by another?

“Ladder” – Lester has worked for years to ascend the ranks at work, but in doing so he has spent less and less time with his wife. Now, he is determined to be with her until the end, but an unexpected development for their future interferes with the reality of the present.
