Anyone who knows me knows that I am a "Man of the People." I respect anyone who is working any job, because every job is important in making the world go around. So, I am often the last person to complain or criticize someone when they're struggling with getting their job done if they're giving it their all.

So how do we end such a fanciful epic?
Yeah, just have him repair the ship off-panel and launch 'em. Of course, he arguably could have done that at the beginning of the story, but I don't read these things for their gritty realism.
See you tomorrow!
