I leave Squid Row on a high note, mostly. Midge, who loves her job, will be stepping up to manager of Backstreet Comics. Now she’ll be head honcho in charge of ordering and shift managing and all the things necessary in running a store smoothly. She is no longer supporting dead-weight boyfriend Gabe and she’s seemed to have patched up things with Mouse somewhat.

Mouse… well, who knows if he’ll ever find the right girl. Midge, who is seeing a fella named Henry, seems like the right gal for Mouse… but perhaps a plutonic relationship is best.

Zeek, whose own married life keeps him from always joining in, remains a steadfast pal.

This is where I’ll leave Squid Row. It’s been a superb experience… and thank you for coming along!
