A couple cameos on this one, I totally botched the opportunity but the squidbunny thing is Nefret from a friend and fan Bunthulhu, meanwhile that lizard on the table is none other than Marcus from Xibalba!

Getting so close to the fight I can feel it.

I do like you creature designs! I like how Jaunt is such a gentleman! He even take into account the audience!

Hey thanks :D

And yeah, it's no surprise he likes having an audience, the show off he is :')

Ooooohhhh... an audience. Of COURSE Jaunt wants an audience. He probably has about thirty dirty tricks up his well-tailored sleeve, and having a reputation as someone who can dispatch foes is invaluable...

It's true! For a few reasons - you have to wonder though if he wants a reputation as an underhanded fighter or as an honorable one.

Yeah I wanna watch a duel too.
Nice variety of different angles.

Small typo: In the 3rd panel: "woule" should be "would".

Awww yeah, you know that's gonna be quite the spectacle to behold. Glad to see Marcus has a front row seat for it!

Thanks for the cameo and the shout out man. I really appreciate it.

Of course! I've got a few different cameos I want to get through but I wanted to put Marcus in somewhere :D He'll probably pop in a few more times for continuity's sake, heheh.

Thank you for being one of my earliest supporters :)

Welcome to modern times! Haha, thank you though for all your kind words - I started reading Plague as you recommended and it's intriguing. I do have to say I rather like Tigershark's design, too :) Is there some Blue Sub No. 6 inspiration there?

Just a Dream

Nope, don't even know what that is. LOL Tiger came to me in a dream nearly 21 years ago and has inspired three novels and that webcomic. LOL

Ah ha! That's super cool, and definitely way before Blue Sub No. 6 XD I'm gonna read through it when I can, I'm in chapter/episode 3 now :)

LOL Sorry for the shocker on the early art (one of these years I'll get that chapter 1 redux finished up). Decent.... decent... AAAAA my eyes. :P

Haha, we've had talks about redoing art here on CF and it seems our general consensus is "don't do it!"

It really wasn't bad, I just interpreted it as an art style change or some form of experimentation, something I've done a few times since starting this comic, heh. I'm at chapter 8 now but I'll have to keep reading it later after work.

Thanks again for the read-thru and sparing your time for me :)

Haha, well I did redo the first I think 10 pages of that first chapter, and then ran out of steam. I want to finish that up to get the most heinous part of the art out of the archive and then reformat the remaining textured gutters... I think that is my project for when school is out in June. LMAO!

The redo has been as I get time and inclination (which is why it started in 2010 and still hasn't finished). But I do put more priority on moving forward than looking back. I don't think I'll ever print the comic, so... no need for a complete overhaul anyway!

OH okay, gotcha, so it's sort of a side project kinda deal? That's cool :)

As long as you're focused on moving forward :D I'm gonna try to get more caught up on the weekend, here.

You may have read I'm trying desperately (scrambling really) to get a buffer back and some new and exciting hold-ups have been getting in my way, but I think I'm making progress, I just have less time for other things now :')

It is probably just the guardian's job (a damn good one, spotting all portals all the time) but I feel like Jaunt somehow wants him to get involved.
Dunno.
Maybe they should all just brawl :D

For some reason, I really like the chill red skeleton dude :D :D

There's some lore behind them that I might not be able to fit into the story without getting too expository, but I'll break down my reasoning here -

Yizix is a hub-world with a bunch of documented portals that are used to access it, which are closely monitored. Any new portals that open up need to be investigated immediately since they're undocumented and unmonitored, so the Conservators act as a police force to stop any hostile takeovers, or stray beasts with innate dimensional travelling capabilities (like dimensional shamblers!)

There are many of them, though they all look identical. They're rarely seen in action, though, and are largely just imposing guards :D

And also, thanks! He's kinda like Beta Ray Bill meets Papyrus, heh :')

That is actually clever.
Usually, portals can be used by anyone capable and does not matter where and how you link them.
Considering the sheer amount of creatures and worlds, this is a good law. About which Jaunt does not give a damn :D
If the hub-world allowed every possible portal, it would be quite the Swiss cheese :D

EDIT: Maybe put some bits of lore in the author comment!

Yeah, Jaunt is definitely a troublemaker in this world. He's fortunate that this Conservator seems to recognize him, at least. (He may have a friend or two among them)

I've been thinking about a way to do Lore stuff, and I think I have some ideas I wanna try but I need to redesign the site, first, heh.

Whoaaa I had a LOT of pages to catch up on! Sorry Mr. Taters for not commenting for ages! @_@

I feel like your art was great to begin with, but it's getting even better as the pages go on. Like, I can really feel an increase in the expressiveness in each character. I recall in the past you've mentioned drawing humans is something you find difficult, but for sure I think you've improved in that area - the whole sequence with Chase and the M... family (crap I forgot the name :'D I want to say 'Martini' but that's so wrong) looked amazing! <3

I'm looking forward to this fight... pretty dang sure Jaunt has something up his sleeve. Like, a really BIG something up his sleeve...

Keep up the great work Mr. Taters! <3

Oh jeez, don't even worry about it Rufi :') I still haven't read your comic all the way through yet, so I have NO room to complain.

Thank you so much for your kind words, though, I've been trying my best to get better, it's part of the reason I'm doing this whole thing so it's great to see it's paying off!

I'm looking forward to it, too... I haven't drawn a whole lot of action so I want to get a lot of practice in, and uh, this is gonna help. Or hurt. Not sure yet, haha. I assure you both combatants are bringing something to the table for this battle :)

Thank you, you too - I'm gonna get caught up some day I swear.
