A little more info about the outer god...

Looks like Kurt might not be up for fighting anymore, but this is some useful info :D

Well looks like Kurt's fight is going to be much bigger than he expected!

Yep. Yog-Sothoth.

Not a good entity to be on the bad side of.

Why do I get the feelinh that this scene ends with Kurt either asking to be put out of his misery or renewed of purpose?

Yeah, uh, maybe you should check and see who someone's employer is before you try and steal from them, JEEZ Irwin.

We'll see what happens with bug-boy pretty soon, here...

I remember reading about yog-sothoth when I was younger...I loved the hp love craft stories, even the ones written by other people.

Most of the lexicon at this point is made up by people that weren't Howard, himself, heh. That's part of the inspiration to do this story for me, is to sort of introduce people to the mythos from an easier-to-read starting point. :)

Oh, he doesn't kill him. Phew =')

Also I have to look for Yog-Sothoth, the name seems unfamiliar yet interesting

Nope! Haha, Irwin is a little more disciplined than his brother it seems like, or just more trusting.

It's the outer god Jaunt was talking about before, grandpa Yog is one of the big ones :)

Irwin using the word "thot" in ANY context is blowing my mind, also his goatee is so PERKY, my god!! Stylin', stylin', stylin'.
He makes for a pretty interesting-looking dude with this new outfit configuration he's got going on! I would not let him sit next to me on the bus!

I was wondering if anyone would notice that XD it wasn't intentional, but when I wrote it down I was like "Someone's gonna see one of my characters saying thot. Oh well." Figues it was YOU.

I'm trying to simplify drawing my characters a bit, so I tried to give Irwin some more stand-out features I can try to draw consistently, and a pointy chin thing is one of the things :')

His current digs-situation is a little odd, though, for sure. He's not making any best dressed lists yet... what about the chest monster, though? Who wore Irwin better? Chest monster or Irwin?

Ooh, I'm gonna have to go with IRWIN wearing Irwin better! Unpopular opinion, I know, but when Irwin wears Irwin it doesn't result in Irwin continuously exposing Irwin's chest to those around Irwin.

Could we be looking at a "The enemy of my enemy is my ally," situation. And for Kurt, as Nietzsche said, "That which doesn't kill me..."

Because not going against a god is boring. Seriously :D
So we have Jaunt and co., Chase and co. and Irwin and co. All heading towards similar goals willingly or not.

Morbid but Kurt has really clean and reflective blood :>

Not to mention Don Manchetti and company. Somehow, I think that they will never truly cooperate with Chase. Use him, yes. Just as he will use them. But both will have a separate end game in mind. And, I wonder, if the same is not true of the younger Manchetti. I could see him chafing under his father's rule.

You've got it - we have a good number of factions all with their own motivations and allegiances, and not everyone is gonna get their way :)

Haha, right!? Why would we settle for a lesser conflict? :D

Hopefully this multi-factioned story will remain interesting and not irritating and confusing, though, heh.

And, haha, I guess I'm not the super greatest at drawing blood? Probably not good for me, something I need to work on. . .

I was joking :D
No idea what kind of blood Kurt has. Even if it is "bug blood". I just found it interesting :D

I like the chest monster's look in the second to the last panel. It's so wondering what mess it's gotten itself into.

Finally caught up!! Oh man...okay, slightly not relevent to the story, but I'm really digging your mastery of fabric folds. I suuuuuuuck at that. The entire thing is really top notch, so excited to see this doing so well!

Ah gosh, thanks Zaika :)

I've always liked drawing clothes and fabric and stuff. I'm trying to find a way to draw it stylistically and efficiently for this comic, so I'm glad it's coming across :D Also, I don't think you suck at it at all. If you want to find some ways to draw stuff differently, fabric-wise, I have a couple resources you can look at :)

But thank you, though, I'm truckin' along :D

Puny god

I'm thinking that artifact used way back must have really tossed his game off if he didn't see that one coming.

But I think we're getting the start of Team three here. That's if the insect can stow his broken pride aside for the time being.

Haha, yeah, Jaunt is uh, he's not having a very good day :')

Team three is a possibility, but I might check today's update, just cause...
