This was the finish to Omaha the Cat Dancer that wasn’t supposed to be. Fifteen (or so) years after a romantic falling out between the artist and writer, they decided to let bygones be bygones and wrapped up their most famous creation. It’s rare that a comic, the field most littered with unfinished tales, to come back later and finish. Like Alan Moore’s Lost Girls, it’s a hell of a treat.
And I must say there are no loose ends. Everyone’s relationships are finalized, one way or another, and the mysteries are all revealed. Unlike the previous volumes, the authors knew they exact amount of space they had to finish their vision, so events are much faster moving with an extra amount of action.

We see Omaha finally get the divorce from her first husband; the wrap up between Shelly and Kurt’s romance; the completion of what would happen to the strip clubs on “A” block; the wrap up on who killed Senator Bonner and its fallout on the political bigwigs in Mipple City; plus the ultimate answer as to what will happen between Omaha and Chuck. I won’t tell you, but I’m sure you can guess.
It’s a good ending for the series. If the art style hadn’t taken a major shift, you would never know about the gap in time. The story picks right up and carries the ball into the end zone. If you’re looking for something other than the happy ending wrap up, then you will be disappointed.
