Mega Milestone: The Godstrain Brings Down the Final Curtain

What goes up must fall down; Where there is a beginning must also have an end; Every opening must have a closing. KimLuster's 437 page masterful comic, The Godstrain, has been a Drunk Duck staple since 2012 when it first started and eventually earning a Feature recognition at the start of 2013.

Kimber Lee's got a problem! She can do things only possible in dreams; she's super fast, inhumanly strong, and nearly indestructible! Therein lies a conundrum! When you can do the impossible, how can you be certain you're not dreaming?


On the last page of The Godstrain, KimLuster wrote:


Last page! After everything Kimber Lee's been through, I feel just fine with this slightly twee ending! Leaving it open about Kimber Lee and Emilio's future (although we know where his heart is..) - Little drama (although Emilio's probably made it awkward if he decides to stay with Mari Pas)!!

I gave some thought on the song Emilio would sing here. Knew it should be sorta dream-themed. Thought about Heart's ‘These Dreams’, Queensreich's ‘Silent Lucidity’… Finally settle on Elvis Presley's ‘If I can dream’. If you wanna hear (and see) it - I imagine Emilio's version is a little more Rock, less horn-section!! I kinda had to go with this song because… My man does Elvis impersonations here and there, and I'm a pretty big E.P. fan!!

Thanks so much, everyone, for a wonderful trip!! There was a couple times I felt a little bit of burnout but your continued support always made it just go away. Glad too, cuz it's a story I really wanted to tell. There's a few personal elements here and it's been quite cathartic. Also, some philosophical themes I've pondered on, but also just a lot of sci-fi, superheroic, slam-bam romping!! It's been thoughtful, dark, and fun - pretty much has touched on all the ranges of human emotion for me!!

But, everything does end, one way or another! I'll probably do a 2 or 3 page epilogue at some point, perhaps throwing some hints about a new project I'm formulating and hope sees the light of day! Also will include some DD Awards pages should I be honored with some!!

I'll maintain a presence here on DD. Will continue to read and support my faves! Like you have for me!! Thank you all, once more!! When you dream, dream big!! Let's close with a quote, by a Native American Chief from the movie Grey Owl:

“A man becomes what he dreams - you dreamed well.”

Thanks again everyone!! I'm letting a potential new thing marinate in my brain for a little bit!! Probably won't get serious with it till after the awards (judging and doing presentations ;))

What will you do after this? You should write for Bottomless Waitress :)

Congratulations!

Much respect! You're an inspiration and an all round great person too.

Congratulations! Not many people have it in them to finish such a huge project! I actually just started reading it a little while ago. Its good to know it isn’t just going to randomly end without warning; like so many webcomics do.

Congratulations Kim! You're a big inspiration for me and I thank you on behalf of all those who read your comic and for your immense support :D

437 pages, that's an achievement! Congrats!

DJMulcahy at 11:05AM, July 31, 2017

Yay! That's some serious dedication. I found a page in the middle a few weeks ago and recently tracked back to the beginning to see it all the way through. Cool stuff.

Quite the accomplishment! Looking forward to future projects!

This comic has been stellar, and KimLuster has been an enormous boon to the comic part AND the community part of the site!

Miss it already.

Everyone should wear black arm bands in remembrance of The Godstrain.
