You bet it is. Am I excited? You bet I am.
One of the things Kelley and I really tried to do with this series was make sure each issue built from beginning to end and that each issue built upon the previous issue, ramping up the tension...but not necessarily in an expected way.
I know some readers were a bit confused with where the story was going initially, and that was very much by design. We're hoping they've stuck around to see it become quite clear this issue—or as clear as things can be when one is under the influence of the Scarecrow's fear gas, that is.
I have to admit, that first page always cracks me up. If others like it even half as much as I do, I'll be pleased.
