Picture Comics’ June solicitations evidently got here out over the weekend, and — as Kevin Sels factors out on Twitter — Sean Phillips reposted the related information for Kill Or Be Killed, his newest collaboration with Ed Brubaker.

(I assumed I had looked for the solicits earlier this week and got here up empty-handed, however evidently not.)

The massive information is that challenge #20, due June 27, is described because the “grand finale” to your entire, ongoing sequence, and it guarantees to comprise “all of the solutions” to the e book’s most urgent questions:

Will Dylan discover a option to dwell his secret life as a vigilante, or will he throw away the masks? And was there ever actually a demon, or is he simply loopy? And can he (or any of us) get out alive?

On the official Twitter feed for The Undertow Podcast, Robert factors out that the sequence’ ultimate cowl is an spectacular homage or allusion to John Romita Sr.’s well-known cowl for The Wonderful Spider-Man #50, the fifty(-one)-year-old story, “Spider-Man No Extra!”

The sequence’ impending finish was not too long ago introduced in a January interview with Phillips after which confirmed by Brubaker within the again pages of February’s challenge #16, and this nonetheless appears sudden.   I used to be anticipating a “ultimate arc” main as much as this concluding challenge, and it could be worthwhile to look again at how the top to different latest books have been introduced, particularly Fatale and The Fade Out.

We’re curious how the story ends, and we might not be the one ones.  Regardless of joking, “All of them dwell fortunately ever after!” Phillips consoles fan Charge McBee, whose Twitter feed is value a observe.

“It’ll be nice. Most likely. I’ve no thought the way it ends.”

Replying to certainly one of many laments for the sequence’ finish, Phillips hints at the upcoming schedule, writing, “We’ll be again with one thing new in October.”

Within the meantime, now we have a brand new challenge of KOBK reaching shops as we speak, following a the discharge of a three-page preview on-line.   It is obtainable in a normal cowl, proven above, AND within the hanging virgin wraparound cowl introduced in February.

Oblivious to the difficulty that is heading his manner, seen in final month’s cliffhanger ending(s), Dylan’s on the point of mete out justice to “Perry the orderly,” this time buying and selling his menacing ski masks for a heat cardigan.

Kill Or Be Killed #17 is out as we speak, with the concluding challenge #20 simply three months out.
