Part II is the conclusion to her first adventure.
( With your trademark Sakai Twist™ )
Sakura is slated to return, according to Stan Sakai, but I've seen no indication of her comeback so far.

"Ryan explained to me, he wanted it to be done in our style. He likened and wrote Galactus as Garfield and Norin Radd as Jon. That determined what they were going to look like. When you look at the Silver Surfer, he’s 75 percent of the way there anyway with Jon, all we had to do is give him the big eyes. That was a natural. John kind of hangs around Garfield anyway, he’s the straight man to Garfield’s gags and has to get him food. He’s like Garfield’s herald. Galactus was tougher. We were throwing stuff back and forth, and the initial sketches just weren’t working for Galactus. I said okay, we gotta make him fat. The guy eats planets, for god’s sake! Once we do that, it’s a little less Galactus but certainly a lot more Garfield. It looked more natural. Obviously, Galactus has put on a few mega-tons for this strip." -- Jim Davis

Yes, Fur Watches. Quite strange and even disturbing…
Analog Watch Company offers people to simply send them 50-100 grams of their pet's fur and they will turn them into a customized watch. Any pet will do- dog, cat, rabbit or even a hamster. a very strange, even disturbing concept, entitled The Companion Collection.
"At least my face can't turn out like the Joker's, or a giant red light bulb as in that Richie Rich comic...right?"
Okay, time to bring out the heavy stuff here. This tale of revenge upon revenge is so ridiculously, over-the-top grotesque and brutal it makes EC's "Foul Play" look like The Very Hungry Caterpillar by comparison. Warning for violence/gore.

Long Eared hedgehog are different to their close hedgehog cousins due to their huge ears, the length of which varies from 3 to 5 centimeters. This size of the ear is an adaptation to the hot climate area, which is inhabited by these animals. Long-Eared hedgehogs are found in deserts, semi-deserts and steppes.

In other news, I just wrote and deleted a writing rant, but suffice it to say, "start as close to the end as possible" remains one of the best and most useful bits of writing advice I ever heard.
That sets up a Batman I want to read. That sets up a Batman whose pain comes from guilt, not just from inaction. I think a lot of us, when we think about the worst parts of our life, we think about ourselves being involved in them. It’s not just the pain that was done to us but [also] the pain we caused ourselves. In looking at Batman and making him more human and raising the stakes of the series, I wanted to bring out that guilt. -- Tom King
