Shouldn't that be "The last scene"?
Great article otherwise.

CP's sis here... the sentence you're talking about is not a spelling mistake; she meant the 'last seen' of the man, as in the last visible appearence, and not the 'last scene', which would have implied that it was a play of some kind...
She's at school at the moment and they've messed up her workspace on their network, so that's why you've got me here instead... sorry about that
I'll tell her you like the entry; it's going to be a great surprise when she gets home... finding that it's not only on the front page, but editor's choice!

He has been seen around a little since then, including an appearance in the film Dungeons & Dragons, as the keeper of a maze.
And there's a crystal in it.
Pedantic as ever...
That's a really good entry! Just one point:
"A digital time-keeper was used with red LCD to add to the futuristic feel"
I think you'll find it was a red LED (Light Emitting Diode) as opposed to LCD (Liquid Crystal Display - the ones that are commonly black-on-grey)...
Pedantic as ever...

'The last seen of whoever' is a popular expression used correctly in this instance. It is common in tracking down criminals etc - as is the 'last heard of'. I'd keep it in your text as it adds humour and style !
