#21 was released more than two weeks ago, PC. I guess #22 will be available end of Octobre.

Thanks, Embala dear.
I had wrongly guessed #21 would be released only at the end of september.

finally read it, disappointed. Lamest non death ever!

There were only three things I actually liked. The machine gun knives (not that its any different from having a gun.) "The Rocks are hiccupping!" and the last page, which was the only page that made me 'feel' anything.

How many issues to go?

3 more, I think. #22, #23, and #24. Technically, I think it's the longest-running planned series. OQ was only 20 issues long, S@BM was 8, and KoBW was 9.

I thought the main quest had more pages, or at least it felt longer. Maybe I was also just more seized by the story.

Final Quest feels longer because Richard and Wendy are trying to wrap over 40 years of story and not doing a good job of it.Original Quest had the mystery of their origins combined with the need for survival,but Final Quest is a wrap-up and farewell.

Original Quest had clearly 30+ pages per issue, with one or two being up to 40.
SaBM was somewehe under 30 Pages ... between 27 and 29.
KotBQ was back to 30 ... with 1 or 2 longer issues.
Let's say 30 average to make it easy - (600 + 240 +270) = 1,110 filled pages.

Final Quest offers 19 to 21 pages per issue ... with some 2 or 3 longer ones.
I'd say 20 average - 480 filled pages (plus some). Add FQ Prologue if you wish ... about 60 pages).

Makes OQ the longest arc by far and SaBM plus KotBW together have (more or less) the lenght of FQ.

FQ is still the tale with the most issues per arc.


So much about "technical data" and numbers. Smile

Embala, wow....Like

To me, Final Quest feels like the longest tale because I don't like it very much and I feel like the various storylines feel like they are dragged out so much.

Precisely. A lot of what's racking up the page count in this book seems like padding. So many of the questions that get answered with any depth seem like questions nobody asked, while long-dangling character plots get dashed-off like the writers just didn't want to be bothered with them.

Plus the whole thing had just been an exercise in terrible pacing. I typically only catch up with FQ twice a year when Dark Horse has its deep-discount sales over at Comixology, and I can pick up the issues for a buck each (or less if I have a gift card). Even binge-reading this thing in large chunks, it's felt like the Pinis just didn't have that much left to say about EQ and so needed to stretch out what little they did to fill however many collected editions they hope to get out of this project. Hence the perfunctory, checklist feel to a lot of the story/content resolutions, the back-tracking on development for certain characters, the barely-developed new chracters/tribes, etc.

What're the Pinis going to do when the series ends? Will they retire? Move back in together? Work on other projects? Have either of them mentioned this at all?

Knit scarfs and play bingo?
Grow herbs and sell herbal tea online?
Learn how to play the accordeon?
Create a secret alphabet and write each other snail mail letters in it?
Train a flea circus?
Collect stamps?
So much to do! bounce

Maybe Mr. and Mrs. Pini simply wish to retire.
Do what they want when they want. Having time for each other.
No deadlines. No nagging fans. ^^ No nagging Elves either.
And if there should be another (EQ) project do it on their own pace.
Making it fun instead of work.

They deserve retirement, and time, and fun. They have created something that has made many people happy and they can be proud of that. flower

Yeah, I mean. I don't even think the grouchiest of us will hold retirement against them! They absolutely deserve that

If they do wind up retiring, then yeah, I hope they do have a peaceful and lovely time with it. If they don't, then I wish 'em luck with their future endeavors, whatever they might be.

Although if retirement's their plan, that'd explain a lot about how rushed the Final Quest seems to feel.
