I love ongoing stories. I adore cliffhangers. One of my favorite parts of reading comic books is being absorbed into a never ending story, one with infinite worlds.
Yet I often find I have a love/hate relationship with three words:
To be continued.
Those three words get the adrenaline pumping, and fill me with a weird mix of hope and anticipation. To be continued? But I want more! And now!
At the end of the day, though, I prefer seeing those three words over reading the alternative: the end.
