It’s TPTB that are foolish, thinking they can kill off our favorite ChaRActers with a stroke of their poisoned pens (or keyboards, as it were). Their CReAtor has breathed life into these fellows, giving them breadth and depth, hearts and souls, and they outlive whatever heinous plans and dubious plotlines shoved at them. Long live the So Not Dead, who have been Loved into Being by their many admirers. Long may they continue to delight and dazzle us with their adventures.
I’d include more artwork including Capt. Ian, but WP is playing an April Fool’s joke on me, it seems. 😉
