That was the conclusion to “The Hunt!” I hope you enjoyed it. I wrote it several years ago compared with the current “Wheel Tales of Willow City” and “Space Trek” stories and “Vlad” from this series.

I ended up breaking “The Hunt!” up only into 6 parts. I made some a bit longer to fit the story-line. I predicted 7 based on the length and doing 5 panels at a time with 35 panels. However the story didn’t feel right just broken up by the numbers.

I hope you enjoy it and will share it with your friends, relatives, and colleagues. You needn’t do any ear lending if you don’t want to.
