The one I'm thinking of was from "Meet Me in St. Louis." Judy Garland movie that I was obsessed with as a kid...still am, really. hehe

First Irwin, now Kurt. Jaunt is totally doing the whole "bodies in your closet" thing the wrong way. All the bodies are escaping lmao :D
Is he sensing the blob? Perhaps. Blob is definitely more powerful then he lets out I guess...

I mean, not keeping them somewhere is smart, but when you don't know where they're going it's a bit of a problem :o

It seemed he sensed some sort of energy left behind when Irwin disappeared, so he's got that much to go off of...

I love the colours in the last panel! How'd you go about picking those few particular colours?

Aw, thanks man! I like to try a lot of new stuff and this is actually kind of stemming from a thing I remember my friend told me about Hirohiko Araki, the genius behind JoJo's Bizarre Adventure;

He doesn't think in color when he draws, but when he does apply color it's to invoke a certain mood. I try to do that a little already but for this I wanted to get kinda wacky, but also represent a totally different atmosphere - it's not unfriendly colors, but it's also not normal, which will make a little more sense on friday's page a bit as to why I'm going for it.

Plus I just like really weird and jarring colors sometimes :D

A pair of anomalies. But no answers. And, why did Jaunt return to a temporary pocket universe that leads nowhere else? Was it to see if Kurt had changed his mind? We may never know.

Indeed, he's faced with a pretty rough situation...

As far as why he comes back here, it's kind of like his junction point. For big leaps between spaces (Earth and 'Yizix' in this case) he'll stop by here first :)

I didn't mean the area around the bar. I meant the pocket universe that the security monitor specifically created for the fight between Jaunt and Kurt.

Oh, yeah, that's what I'm talking about :)

The area with the big purple 'monoliths' is a place Jaunt uses to zip from place to place, specifically because of how charged with eldritch energy it is. He's not sure what the place is, but it's been very useful to him.

I'm enjoying the level of detail on Jaunt's costume. Since he whips out the monocle to have a look around I am wondering if the visor he is wearing has any functionality.

It sure doesn't! It's the sort of headwear that only works if your eyes don't! (Or if you don't have any eyes)

I'm glad you like it, though, I thought people might be ticked off at the total outfit change from his iconic one :)

While there is something to be said for establishing an iconic look, being able to change the clothing provides a lot more opportunity to demonstrate interaction with the environment. I hope in the future there are more clues about how Jaunt perceives his environment and how the monocle works for him.

I'm glad you're on board :) I like having different outfits for characters, doesn't make a super lot of sense to have them in the same clothes all the time, sorta reduces the believability for me, too.

And yeah, totally, we will get to see the world through his senses before the story's over :)

Jaunt cosplay

So, I made no secret of my love for Jaunts new outfit when it was revealed.It just looks so amazingly comfy and is one of the few outfits I could ever see myself wearing as cosplay (and not just because getting that snazzy crown to work sounds like fun).
Since I don't work on clothes much, I wouldn't normally know where to begin, but I think the starting place for the outfit just fell into my lap today.

Well, looking back I didn't actually say as much as I thought I did about the outfit and my love for the design. Suffice it to say that I thought a bunch of really nice things that I didn't really put into text.

Wow that's a really cool jacket :D A bit out of my price range to consider buying it but if you pair it with that hakama I think you might be onto something :)

That headdress would be a super difficult part, though - I'm happy you like it enough to even consider it! Heheh :D

Jaunt needs mire seeing eye-wear for his outfits. Monicles are nice and all, but they don't go with just anything.

Oh my god I didn't realize Jaunt's headgear was so 2-dimensional. I thought it was like... an elaborate fez this entire time :')
Also that last panel color combo is CUTE AF

Ah, yeah, it's not the best thought through. I feel lame for it being as lackluster as it is, but... c'est la vie, it's not something he's gonna be wearing for TOO much longer, heh.

And thank you, I had a lot of fun and pain with that panel :D
