Spare Keys for Strange Doors
20151011 - The End

Well. There you have it. THE ACTUAL END.

It seems very bizarre to have finally got here. I've got to be honest, there were times when I thought I wouldn't make it this far. I seriously considered giving up on more than one occasion. But I'm very glad that I didn't.

Thank you so much for reading; having people following the story as I post it has kept me going through good times and bad, and I've always been very grateful for your support - from the fabulous regular commenters, to the guys who show up every week to find out what happens next, to the archive-bingers who give me hope that maybe the whole thing actually will make sense if you read it all at once. Building a wall by laying one brick a week for over ten years is not the easiest way of working :P

Apologies for not answering comments on the previous page. The closer we've come to the end, the less I've known what to say ... I don't really want to make 'author statements' about some of this stuff ...

Please pop back next week, as there are a couple of things I've been wanting to do ... and it would feel a bit weird to just go 'OKAY WE'RE DONE HERE BYE' and slam the shutters.

And before you ask, yes, I'm planning on bringing Spare Keys for Strange Doors back.


Here's the last three of the new Spiderforest comics:

Out of My Element - A steampunk / fantasy story set in the city of Cog, where Jillian, a young noblewoman, is simultaneously getting mixed up in a rebellion, courted by one of the most powerful (and obnoxious) men in the country, and finding a few things out about her heritage that she'd really rather not know. This one is an entertaining read, with a fun sense of humour and an intriguing plot - plus, a nice (but still not particularly daunting) chunk of archive to get stuck into.

TDUGN (The Dracko Universe Graphic Novel) - This comic has a high-fantasy feel, but instead of the usual suspects, it features people who are part human, part dragon - and it also doesn't skimp on the background art, which gives it a nice sense of place. A young girl turns up unexpectedly, claiming to be from a place that doesn't exist - the leaders of the Draga Empire take her in, despite their fears that she may have been sent by the leader of an anti-imperial faction.

Castoff - A strange (and endearingly nervous) guy with glowing eyes is spending his days hidden in a bookshop, when a mage pays a visit and turns his life upside down. It's early days with this one, but it had me hooked right from the start - with an unusual set-up, interesting characters and some very expressive art. Plus, Vector is so adorable, I can't handle it.
