In terms of the piece itself, it's basically Huffer looking out at the Earth itself, presumably for the last time(even though he never left Earth in any continuity that I know of, but meh). Huffer being Huffer, he's saying good riddance to our dirty little planet, not caring if he ever comes back(at least, that's my take).

In a larger sense though, accoring to comments on devaintart, is the last Mosaic. The project has come to an end, and they're going out on a laugh as opposed to a bang or a whimper. It's not what I expected and my reaction certainly isnt' good riddance, but it's a fitting end.

At least we got one more Thundercracke piece a few weeks ago before all was said and done :P .

Well done, guys. A fitting and funny close.

Glad to have been part of it several times over the years. Mosaic will be missed.

It is a very sad bit of news, indeed. This was a whole lot of fun to work on, and big props to the Mosaic team for putting this together. This has been one of the most enjoyable things I've done in recent years.

On a more positive note, the legacy of the Mosaic will continue, in Multiverse. The most recent episode of which came out today.

Loved these. I'm not all that into the various continuities and mythos, so many of the Mosaics went over my head. But the artwork was always great and the range of emotions was striking. A fun project overall. thanks to everyone involved.

I know I'm older than you, because I thought Night Ranger was a band, not a Go-Bot. MOTORIN'!

Please. I'm so old, I remember when Megatron was a flintlock. I'm so old, I remember the smoke signals fans used to ask where Optimus Prime's team of horses went when he transformed. I'm so old, I can remember when Shockwave had two eyes.

...four in the mornin', it came without a warnin'...
