Of course, killing Annette off was just my way to really put a final nail in the joke that Annette never shows up in the comics (just always off-screen). There are only so many times you can do a gag like that, and this way, I don't have to try.

Put a nail in... that's an awful pun in context.
 
    

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.
