|September 2003: Latter Days 29|
|Latter Days: The Last Day|
Cerebus has a response for the Ricke and Joanne “lesbiennes”. Cerebus has a cold spell so he puts his pants back on. Cerebus practices for meeting his son. Cerebus looks up the staircase and we see it from his perspective: blurry, white spots and unable to see the top. Cerebus thinks to himself that it looks familiar.
Cerebus remembers what drove Shep Shep away: the music festival and how abortion became a right. The Ricke and Joanne “lesbiennes” maintain their veto.

Lenny: What's up with the ladder to nowhere in Last Day? What did it remind Cerebus of? Why was it there? Stairway to heaven?
DAVE: The stairway that went into the wall seemed a good metaphor for Cerebus' failure to ascend past the idea of Jaka Tavers. I also liked the idea that about once or twice a day he would think, Say I never have checked to see what's up those stairs. And then go and discover the wall all over again. Those who don't learn from the past, etc. etc.
