This concludes the Doomsayers’ Alley storyline. For the start, read No. 24 “Hethra Delayed.” For background on the Doomsayers, read No. 5 “Black Hole Sun” and No. 13 “Long Dark Layover.”

A heartfelt thanks to everyone who is reading The Big Crunch so far. Your responses to the comic have been intuitive, surprising and encouraging, and I can’t wait to reveal more about the strange inhabitants of Thanova to you. You are a luminary little group of fans, and I’m incredibly grateful for your patronage.

New episodes will resume in June. Meanwhile, I’ll be updating the site design and continuing to broadcast more episodes of The Panelists. Stay tuned.
