Yes, that IS a set-up for the next storyline. Congraturations. You're winner.
Anyway, just to avoid any confusion... Inside of the comic, the TYH world is no more than a program on my computer. However, it's super advanced, the characters have life-like AI. Heck, they ARE real, pretty much. Everything will become clear in the next story. And if anyone's ever read "Planet Zebeth" (Good comic, but not for kids), they should understand the deal with the program. After all, I cited a lot of my inspiration from the very same comic.
And if it seems as if the comic has a major Zeda theme to it lately, the next storyline is NOT Zelda-themed, believe it or not.
