... is it just me or does that jem seem to be the type of item to be part of a set?

It might be! I do know that this Jem is part of a set:

I also have it on good authority that she might be outrageous to some degree.

This lady above is Jem :D

It was a late 80s early 90s thing about a girl who transforms into a pop star because Holograms!

Jem is also Atticus Finch's little girl, but Jem is indeed an 80s pop star created by toy companies trying to get girls to watch stuff as ridiculous as He Man and such, and had the advantage of not having to avoid plot points which ever so obviously called for character deaths (I still hate that Cobra helicopter pilots parachuted out of damaged copters at under a hundred feet with chutes by jumping through the rotor blades).

Haha, yeah, that sort of stuff was frustrating, but understandable considering the rating. You could say that one of the feelings I want to convey with this comic is a similar style of art with more mature closure, if that makes sense :)

There's even a new comic book series about her that has gotten very good reception from old fans and new younger readers not familiar with the show!

(Also a terribad movie that has nothing to do with either, and was a cheap attempt to capitalize off the comic's sudden popularity by rebadging a generic girl band teen movie as a known property.)

Oh yeah, I remember being vaguely excited to see that movie until I saw the trailer - the trailer revealed everything you needed to know about the movie. Namely, that it was garbage :D

Glad to hear the comic series is going well though!

I am glad Hugh is not suspecting Jaunt of anything crappy. Not that I think Jaunt would do that but he still kinda forced this device on Hugh...
Whatever helps though. He is still the boss.

No idea so far. Considering the hardening effect I think it is like super strength or maybe something similar to the Armored Titan from Attack on Titan if you know what I mean.
Actually, Jaunt is a cool boss. His employees fail, he goes shopping and brings everyone a present! Man!

Jaunt has never really done anything overtly harmful (technically) to Hugh, but he is fairly aloof. There's also that social awkwardness that seems to imply it's not because there's fondness or friendliness behind it but rather that special brand of courtesy between employees that is treated like friendliness :D No real reason to distrust, but just under the surface it's a little awkward...

I haven't seen Attack on Titan but I think I know what you mean - we'll get to see this in action before too long :)

Haha, so far he's doing pretty well, it doesn't hurt that he himself had a failure of some sort, so he can't just blame everyone else.

It remains to be seen if that's the sort of person he is...

At least Hugh is as handsome as ever. In the back of my mind I had him possibly looking like the Thing from the Fantastic Four.

Does Hugh have finger nails? I would guess that even deep ones have them since the vestigial claw provides structural support to the fingertip. This brings the eternal question:can you cut glass with Superman's nail trimmings?

Oh yeah, the hybrids have fingernails still :) And heck, when it comes to Supes, Iunno, probably? The guy has every power under the sun, why not fingernail cutting? XD

This doesn't count as a 'hex' does it? XD;;;

I love the crazy use of blacks and shadows in all these pages taking place at Jaunt's X3

"My skin is crawling, though..." is a great line for this ;v;

I don't THINK so...

I'm trying to use darker shading and full black a lot more - I'm disappointed with the result but I am tracking improvements. I hope I'll be able to master it down the line.

I'm glad you like the direction, Rufi :)

I just figure you're really busy. Also figure Taily hasn't noticed the post either because she hasn't said anything.

It's gotten one review so far.
