And here it is; The conclusion to the epic saga that is Penguins vs. Possums in form of issue #8. Like before, the issue comes from Sebastian Kadlecik, John Bring and Lindsay Calhoon Bring – and is published by Fanbase Press (formerly known as Fanboy Comix).

I'm going to skirt around the story details and plot twists here, since this is the ending we're talking about. However, in spoiler-free terms; The ending is satisfying, having humongous ramifications to the world of the comic. All the story arcs are wrapped nicely and if you are a follower of the saga, you won't be disappointed.

Sorry if I sound a bit vague, but as someone who hates spoilers, I don't want to ruin the conclusion for you. Just rest assured; It's a blast.

So, now that the story is complete, time for a retrospective look on the series as a whole. I originally went into the whole thing expecting a simple hardcore comic akin to the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – the self-published one, before they made it kid-friendly – but I was positively surprised how well thought-out the whole series is. The cast is also colourful, even when they are monochromatic, which really makes you root for everyone. In other words, instead of a simple punk-tastic-antics, Penguins vs. Possums is a lot smarter ride than you might initially think. And it stays that way all the way through.

For more on Penguins vs Possums on Weekly Penguin arena, check out issues 1-4, 5, 6 and 7 - as well as the two special figurines!

Now that the series is out in its entirety, Fanbase Press has a complete bundle available on their online store front. I wholeheartedly recommend checking it out. And personally I would love to see some sort of 'omnibus edition' in the future.

So, once more; Thank you for the creative minds behind this fun ride and Fanbase Press for publishing it. I'll be keeping a close eye on future projects from these folks – even if they don't involve penguins.
