She deserves it fo forcing people to do as she thinks they should and responding with violence or kinapping when they don't. Chaos wins? The 8-bit world sucks anyway (in the sense of living there would suck).

Let's face it, no matter how the comic ends some significant group of readers willbe happy. Anyone who can't deal with constant anti-climaxing likily wouldn't still be reading this far in. Hell, weren't the last few fake outs met with overall praise?
A depressing, soul-crushing ending =/= Bad ending, just to clarify. Not in a Brian Clevinger work.

What I'm saying is we have a comic where nothing can be a bad ending. Even i it just stops one day tere will be people who will claim it's the greatest anti-climax of all. It's a win/win situation.
