So, what's the implication? Huh?

That's right, the clone was removed from continuity. It's a weird thing, actually. The clone gets eliminated, and yet all the other stupid antics Richter participated in get to stick around.

Apparently the Richter-clone was a bigger threat. Weird.

And, wait, Annette actually shows up in the comic? Holy shit, I did not remember that.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
