Great Adam Brown cover, he's going from strength to strength.  Love to see him doing a Dredd. Z

Or Slaine.

So given many of us find out tomorrow, how do we think Absalom is going to end? Inspector and Guv'nor both dead,    I'm sure, but the kiddies? Alive? Transformed into hideous monsters that Absalom has to kill? Dead since the start? Never existed at all, juse an excuse/trick for Absalom to pursue his war? Place your bets!

It was all a dream or a nightmare (depends on your perspective)

hmmm, Harry has been around for a very long time, so how do we know that his grand kiddies aren't all grown up?

Maybe Harry is in for a shock when he gets there, and I wouldn't be too surprised to see Harry take the Guv'nor down a peg as well.

Either way, it has been a great series and congrats to Gordon & Tiernan for finishing the series.

My guess is that the kids are being held by rivals to the Rathbornes who wanted Harry to take them down, and not in the Mills at all.

 Alternatively Harry's actually an angel, and his 'grandchildren' are billions strong and millennia old and are in fact all of humanity who he is trying to rescue from secret demonic rule.

Which is why I'm not writing for the Prog!

Are ye all sure to be sure that there is not another series after Terminal Diagnosis? Surely the next episode ends on a 'to be continued' cliff hanger!

Nope, it's been confirmed this is the end of Absalom.
As for Absolam? Well, I guess he could make a comeback... 😉🤔

 That's a pity, I can think of 2 other current strips I'd rather see the back of than Absalam! :-\

Sometimes there is no more story to tell and I would rather have the creator finishing his/her story in the way that they want to it (even if we do not like the ending). Too many series go on for too long and becomes a rehash of the same-old theme without adding something new. 

I also do not want to see the end of Absalom

Something more nasty and investigative than I can chime up with bit I'll go with: Harry had to kill them himself bit not before they eat the big man.
We never really die.

What a euphemism. And you say you don't have a nasty imagination.
