And thus, “The Beach” storyline (aka Close Encounters of the Nerd Kind) ends! Well, almost – I have a strange little epilogue for you all next week. Also, the questions that arose in this arc – How did cel know Musashi? What does she know about the aliens? Why did she leave? Will she and jefbot ever go steady and does she really like Zac Efron? – haven’t been forgotten and will be answered in future strips. Hope you all stick around as the story unfolds and thanks for all the feedback you guys have given me with your comments and emails. Keep ’em comin’!
