There it is. I think it went rather well, I hope all of you enjoyed the story.

Some overall thoughts on the concepts here, because it's actually pretty frequent that I get emails from people of more...traditional beliefs; who accuse me of ignoring their emails before they even send them to me. *NOTE* I'd like to say that I have read every single email and comment I have ever received through the GoF, and have considered each of the arguments you all have sent to me*NOTE*. First and foremost, the ideas presented here do not technically contradict any traditional monotheistic religion. Very few religious teachings address what ACTUALLY happens in the afterlife. Even the bible, the "original religious text", has scarce all to say about heaven other than it is a very nice place where we will be with God, our FATHER. Those're just my thoughts on this.

As far as the GoF itself goes, I'm now definitely more confidant in my ability to tell a story and pace things. I feel like I kept this from getting too boring, which is impressive considering it's just two people talking in an endless expanse of nothingness. I'm certainly going to be pursuing some story ideas I have in the very near future. I've been working on writing a horror story these past few weeks; I'd like to roll it out around Halloween. Beyond the story, I also feel like I've gotten a lot better at layouts and page design than I was before; rather than simply throwing it all onto a potentially never ending page, I actually had size constraints and limitations I place on myself. I think it gave everything a very nice, consistent look.

For now, though, I think I want to take a break from story-telling, and go back to one-offs and comedy comics. Relax a little, and beef myself up for a new story soon. I'm also strongly considering writing some in-depth articles on making comics and my experiences doing so. Not necessarily a 'professional' look at the concept, more a series of articles displaying some of the shortcuts and workarounds I've found to make it easier to balance a full-time job, this comic, and sometimes a social life(not really).

To summarize, I hope you all enjoyed the story, I'll be putting together some smaller, comedy comics and posting those for a little while.

I'm training to be clergy in a fairly conservative christian church. I found this story in no way offensive, rather its an interesting story exploring some concept. People are too quick to get all tied up in a knot over these things

I have conservative religious beliefs myself, and thought this story was fun and a little mind-blowing! Well done!
