Fitting avatar, Cope.
Man, Liberty Cabbage told me about Atavism about two years ago and I got hooked on it. Doesn't feel like it's been so long since then.
It really is one of the better webcomics I've read. Because of that I'm almost glad to see it coming to a true ending. That might sound weird, but it seems so rare that a webcomic reaches its conclusion that it's great that Atavism will do so. A real accomplishment there, Cope.
Looking forward to your next one. I really have no clue what to expect from it other than a fantasy setting, cause Atavism sure wasn't a run of the mill grungy city setting
Well, I expect a lot of killing... but that's about it.
On that note, even with your reputation for killing off so many characters you managed to surprise me in some way with just about all of them. I think Seth's death was the most shocking, cause he was like the first somewhat major character to go. Sigma's death was almost heartbreaking and while I knew Leander was going to defeat Grey, I did not think he'd do so in just a few panels. Even the guards Seth and the cultists killed, Bucket's henchmen, and that one dude with the oozie Grey killed at the beginning had enough development to make their deaths have a little impact.
In short, you may kill them, Cope, but you certainly don't trivialize death.
Anyway, well done and whatnot. Looking forward to the conclusion.
