After David Robert Jones’ death and the closing of the Bridge between universes, his remaining shapeshifters were left abandoned and stranded on both sides. Hunted by Fringe Division, many of them took on desperate lives of petty crime, and the most resourceful of them somehow succeeded in punching through a new conduit between the universes, in hopes of smuggling valuable goods.
The intermittently existent tunnel beneath a parking garage could not be sealed with amber, and horrifically killed nearly every Fringe agent who was sent in… and a good number of unfortunate shapeshifters besides. Convinced her past dosing with cortexiphan offered her more protection, Olivia volunteered for the dangerous mission of tracking them. One got away, but she managed to get closer to the edge than anyone in Fringe Division had.
It was after this that she began having the nightmares.

Overwhelmed with the sheer amount of notes and other materials that Walter had left for her, Astrid sought the help of experts at Massive Dynamic. But it didn’t take long for the prediction in Walter’s letter to come true. When they delayed returning Walter’s notebooks, Astrid went to New York to find out why. Nina Sharp, who now divided her time between running Massive Dynamic and Fringe Division’s new science wing, invited her to attend the spring meeting of the Board. But the cordial mood soon changed as Astrid realized there was little chance of getting the notebooks back. Determined not to leave empty-handed, she took one old journal with her - the one that Nina seemed to want the most.

While Astrid was unable to understand much of the science in Walter’s grandfather’s journal, as an FBI linguistic specialist she could understand the German perfectly… and she was also beginning to understand why Massive Dynamic had been so interested in hanging on to it.

He did it! I can’t believe he did it! Andy Price made pony versions of the Fringe characters and cameoed them in the comic. He even gave Walter his milkshake! Noticed them after going back and taking a closer look at the art last night.
Top two pics are of “Our universe” Walter, Olivia, and Peter.

If the Fringe fandom is alive let me know.
