Jonesy Cry
I decided to upload the last two pages at the same time. This ending is very painful to me because of many things, to the point where I had to include an author's note. Thank you guys for sticking with me. I assure you, the next comic will not be so dark (for the sake of my poor heart)! The next comic is already being worked on, and you can see the first few pages on Patreon! :-) It's called 'Divine Extinction'. http://patreon.com/grimart

Also, Tell Me More is now available on Gumroad!  https://gumroad.com/l/ybnnZ  All of the high resolution pages and standalone images are in there. It's pay what you want.

Power to you. I understand where you are coming from. Writing a happy ending just cause you are rooting for your character doesn't do the subject matter any justice. I do not think you are trying to be edgy in the slightest. This is a serious subject and I feel I have learned something overall. Thank you.

Great Story, and I'm ok with how it ended. Perfectly understandable that she's a mess. It's almost comparable, for me, to the show MONK. In that show, the MC's wife was killed and while he's already a neat freak germaphobe and such, her death hits him so hard, he can't focus in his job as a detective anymore. He's able to be a consultant and use his smart brain to solve cases, which is the show's premise, but he's still a wreck. It took 8 seasons before they finally let him solve the case of his wife's murder on the final episode. So, yeah...I feel for Jonsey, and hopfully we'll revisit her either in just random pics here and there or a future story where some time has passed.

This is a good ending. It's not a happy ending, in the sense of "happily ever after" - but hey, you could have ended it with her shooting herself, so it's not a bad ending either.

It's a realistic ending. And sometimes leaving the conclusion untold leaves paths open for the readers mind to think.

I like this.

This is my thoughts exactly. Not everything was tied up in a neat bow. There are alot of loose ends but for me, that made the ending seem fitting.

Sure, I would love more of this comic and to see what happens in the world that has been built. I would love to see the fallout of all this, with the drugs and rampant corruption. But if this is truly how the story ends, then I'm fine with it completely.

It is bittersweet and left me hungry for more but maybe, there won't be anymore and this realistic ending is it.

Thank you for the great read, Grim!

Twas a very good comic, and I'm sad to see it come to end. But alas, all good things must, and all that jazz.

I'm a little sad we won't get to see a conclusive ending as it stands, but at the same time, I understand knowing when its time to end something you are pouring creative energy into.

Thanks for sharing the story with us ♥

Man that ending is rough but, it honestly makes sense sadly, I'm glad you stuck with this idea its rare to not have it all magically get solved and everyone leaves happy, great job on this seriously.

you wrote an amazing story that is based of real thoughts, mind and emotions. these are some of the biggest and cruelest things that happen to make peoples and officers. i am not mad how the story ended, from this point of view, its up to us readers who followed your progress on this comic to have our own minds and thoughts, did jonesy recover from her trauma or not, did straxus tell truth, will she be back in police department. the story was amazing to read, you did amazing job and i hope to see even more great comics and art from you.

Sad to see it end but happy that it ended in such a way...trauma lasts a life time sadly and the only way to live with it is through help, from what i know cops and vets looking for help get fired/discharged because of "safety reasons" instead of being helped which is sad you ended this the right way i believe and it was an emotional roller coaster thank you for your wonderful work!

thank you for the story, i thoroughly enjoyed it, i will say that you certainly breathed life into the characters you wrote, while this may be a subject that hits close to home for you, i feel you did very well, i don't see this story as edgy, while it is dark and filled with dark themes, it has a light side to it, everything here was well written and i am just happy to have read it and watched this story unfold, and sometimes the best endings are the ones that leave us with questions and leave us wanting more even when we know we won't get something like it again, at least for a long while, but once more thank you for writing such a dark but beautiful story...

Absolutely amazing. And I thought the ending did the entire story justice, because I'd rather see that, than Jonesy discover some maguffin at the last second that instantly fixes her. I'd like to believe this story, in the long term, could have a happy ending, but right now, Jonesy is in mental and emotional hell, and as an old song once said, it's a long, hard road out of hell. This is one of few stories where I have been hooked completely and I want to read more. All good things come to an end eventually, so with that in mind, I'm eager to see what you create next.

Being former military I get what you are saying more than most around me.  Glad you ended it off in this fashion rather than come to a conclusive end.  PTSD, the public image and worry are very real...  Finding good coping and outlets is hard... Is still hard especially with everything going on in the world.  Getting the aid is probably that hardest part... Trying to remain stoic in the face of friends and family...  Feeling the dark mass of uncertainty eating within you... Doubting self and others... Lost in that myriad ambivalence of emotions others can not see on your mind...

You have quite the story here that touches...  I would honestly say that this ending grinds to a halt that dark road many may have been seeing.  The future is not set and many things can happen...  Yes she sought help, but was it the best help for someone in uniform... Now this intervention gives us much to consider and think on.  Scary world out there both on and offline of which individuals only have an inkling to its depths and damages...

You keep up the work... Your stories I have read over time have a certain perspective that I honestly hope get seen beyond some of the imagery associated.  My eldest is very into comics but hardly considers their foundation of its story, just imagery.  I feel I write fairly decent but drawing few and far...  Your blending of these elements works really well and can only get better and better...

My deepest respects on this piece...

I can't say enough about how much support you have and how the story was finished, mainly because others here have already said as such and in much better words then I can, so all I can say is I echo their sentiment.

Too often people forget cops are people too. This day and age, they're vilified and turned into criminals in the public eye without a care, dehumanized, all for the evening headlines in the news.

This needs to stop.

I think the way your comic was going to make a happy ending that would be satisfying would be super difficult pull off. I think your decision to end it here is perfectly reasonable especially with the subject matter that was being portrayed.
It was an excellent comic. I do like your stories, they're pretty unique and your art style really works well with their subject matters.
I hope to see you improve your work and continue to make stories that you want make.

Thank you for that absolutely fantastic comic. And I totally agree with your final words.
Better end the story here, a happy ending would look fake, and nobody really wants a bad ending either.

Thak you again.

This story has been so heavy. I've loved it from start to finish. I can only hope that you do a Part 2 one day where she gets the help she needs and is able to move on.

I was previously guessing that one way or another Jonesy would get help and lose her career, and the comic would show her learning to adjust to civilian life, but I kinda like this ending better, though the suddenness kinda caught me by surprise. It would be cool to see an epilogue where Marnie visits her in the care facility, but I honestly don't know what she could say.

Thank you for the great comic, both the story and how well you conveyed it through your drawings.

Here's to improving our law enforcement constructively through increased support and understanding!

You are the second person I know to have done this and I am in absolutely praise for it. It is something that is the most difficult, and I am just especially glad that you are able to highlight the struggles of law enforcement, in such a vivid way. Part of what makes a story like this as meaningful as it is, is things like this. I believe such a realistic depiction of the situations and the deep mental look into this is something that will really be appreciated. Once again, there will be two stories I will never forget, as well as their authors.

It's been a pleasure reading, and a journey of emotions, and thank you.

*Bows deeply* Thank you for sharing this excellent story with us Grim, and for bringing to light the plight of Law Enforcement Officers.

I can only speak for myself, but personally, you all should not feel such guilt when your forced to shoot someone. Sometimes it's a mistake, yes, and an innocent person get's killed,  but a lot of the time, the people you shoot have made choices in they're life that put them there.

They chose to steal, murder, rape, sell drugs and point guns at you. They've chosen to hurt they're fellow man, willingly and with no remorse. They stopped being human as soon as they set aside that choice. So your not killing people, your putting down mad dogs.

Mad Dogs, I might add, who would be all to happy to kill you if you didn't pull the trigger first. And if they had killed you, they would have been free to go on and kill and hurt even more innocent people.

So yes, you all are Protectors of the Innocent, Guardians of Peace and if needs be, Avenging Angles. That badge is in the shape of a Shield for a reason. You guys are modern day Knights. Your literally the first and last line of defense between the people who just want to live they're lives and those who want to harm them.

So don't ever think your not a Protector, because you folks are all that and more. Thank you for being our Shield, and doing what you do Grim.
