This comic is amazing, but these last few pages have clearly resonated with a lot of us, and this one is no exception. Thank you, MsMegan! (And I hope the kiddo is doing well and your convention adventures go well, too!)

This is interesting though... if he won’t be transforming back again... will he become someone else in the end or just stay like this?! Hmmm...

I think what he's trying to convey is "I have grown to be better than you...a figment of what I was." I don't think he's saying he would never go back to being human.

I took this as he is not wanting to be this version of himself but a different one. One who faces his fears and handles his anxiety now with Beauty by his side to be a reassurance of what he gained.

Kinda the point past self. We all of that regret and if we thought we could, we'd try to change that past again

I like the "a man whose face I've forgotten"... It explains why we never get to see his face properly (not that we needed an explanation for it, art-wise it's quite neat), but it also reinforces the long, long time he has spent as a beast (I mean, how much time does it take to forget a face you would have seen almost daily in a mirror? Okay, I'm rather rubbish at remembering faces, so I'd probably have forgotten mine the next day... but still)

No, because he can't go back to the man he was. But he can become the person he's meant to be.
Everyone has been saying this resonates with them and this page is the one that really got me. I feel you, Argus.
Like him, I can never go back to the person I was when I was suffering from depression/anxiety. Thankfully I am blessed to be healthy now, and I'm becoming something new, discovering the person I am beneath all of the bad stuff that I've been shedding off of me in the past few years.
I have always loved the BATB fairy tale more than any other, because learning to change, growing and transforming into a better person has always been an important story to me. Because it showed me that I, too, could change and get better. And now that I am older and have been through a sort of transformation myself (though it's one that has taken years, rather than overnight)- this is so satisfying to read.
I am so proud of Argus. And for anyone else who is going through something similar, I'm sorry and I know it's not easy. But you are definitely not alone.<3

That is...fuckin' brilliant, pardon my language. I have no idea what this will mean in the physical sense, but to see Argus/Beast finally be on the road to recovery is beautiful.
