RM4203 Exclusive! Leaked Concession Comic #376 “The End” [UPDATED]
Fans of the internet sensation “Concession” have been waiting for years for the final strip in this legendary comic created by a man known only as Immelmann. That is why it brings me great pleasure to report that RyanMac4203 Home Page has obtained an exclusive early look at what appears to be the final comic. While I cannot reveal the source of the leak I do believe this to be the real deal. See the full comic after the jump, just don’t get your hopes too high. 8-E (Surprisingly SFW, and obviously full spoilers ahead)
[UPDATE 1: It turns out it was a hoax.]
[UPDATE 2: Or was it?]
So there you have it folks, a final comic that’s high on production values and low on laughs. It turns out the entire “Concession” strip was just a movie inside Immelmann’s latest web comic, “Ballerina Mafia.” Immelmann, seen in the first live action shot (a first for the author) explains the supposed genius of his comic to his character’s Arab roommate, Shugwar, who appears to be played by Hollywood’s Shia LaBouf (I guess we know where all that sticker money went. That kinda talent doesn’t come cheap). The payoff is a lame joke referring to the collective feeling of disappointment felt by many fans after last May’s series finale of LOST on ABC. My thoughts on that show’s send off aside, this type of self-depricating humour is fine in some instances, but I’m not sure it’s the best way to end a series, especially one that won Best Anthropomorphic Graphic Story in the 2009 Ursa Major Awards. Plus the obvious plug for the new comic is a little tacky.
Of course, this could just be a hoax put together by some clever fan trying to piggy-back off Immelmann’s success by creating a bit of controversy. We’ll know for sure this Friday.
