It's all about the fins.

I thought the "fin" at the end of the story was a very nice touch.

But yeah, three stories running at the same time with strong elements of folk horror and big freaky monsters... I can understand how that might not be some people's cup o' tea but I can't really complain.

Hadn't even noticed that (except where both Sticklelock and Fiends had a triple-goddess each) - probably because it's very much my bag too.

2210 came on Saturday and 2211 today. Looks like 2209 got lost somewhere in the system then

I thought the "fin" at the end of the story was a very nice touch.

Yeah that got a huge LOL from me. I can imagine Tharg accepting the pitch based solely on "It's Hookjaw, some people will get eaten and instead of THE END we'll use FIN".
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

/whisper. The movie The Meg, two years old now, ends with the exact same gag.

J’accuse.

Probably how that pitch got accepted too. Can't imagine it was the script.

Fashionably late as ever, but just wanted to note how entirely brilliant I thought Hook Jaw was from start to finish. Genuinely creepy, it even gave me disturbed sleep after the final episode.
