Hey guys!

So, the chapter ends on friday :D You know what that means! Maybe not, but it's time for another Q&A!

Next week I'll post two Q&A pages of characters answering your questions, maybe more pages if I get enough of them that I think I can answer :)

Just let me know in the comments below or via PM what question you want to ask of which character - I can't promise I'll get to all of them but I will get as many as I can!

Have a great day everyone :)

Seems like his monocle would've fallen out in panel 3.

Question for Jaunt: "You are always so well dressed! Who is your tailor?"

That was actually answered in a previous Q&A session! :D I'll have to repost those in a link up above - Jack does a lot of sewing and tailoring for the main group, it turns out, heheheh :)

Also, if we are allowed to ask more than one question, here is a more serious one, something that I have been wondering for a while:

How is Jaunt's voice supposed to sound like? Deep and/or aristocratic?

How accessible is the dimension then? You said Jaunt came across it himself so it is technically not HIS dimension even thought he stores stuff and skeletons in it.
The fact that someone else can access it means that they either were also lucky or actually know it is there. That would be quite the backdoor :/
It was the purple blob, right? He found Irwin there first somehow.

It's just a dimension! A little pocket space that happens to be chock full of the kind of energy Jaunt knows how to use, so it's useful for him in a few ways :)

And yes, it would appear purple blob has found an effective back door.. through pure happenstance it got involved :D

Ah right. So basically he found something like a mine nobody knew about from which he is trying to mine energy.
Breaching it should not be a problem then unless someone can track him that way...

Sorta like that, yeah :)

It's not so much a PROBLEM, but J-man wasn't used to seeing other people using it. Only he had meddled with it to that point, as far as he knew :)

Why do I suspect our mysterious person is none other than the bug-eating symbiote fellow?

Question for Jaunt: You seem like a good boss; giving your employees additional weapons/protection when necessary. Other leaders are usually not so gracious and seem to enjoy mindlessly treating those under them like cannon fodder. Did you study up on prior failures of managers after you came to Earth and before you started your current venture?

Hugh: "Did you expect it to fail?"
Jaunt: "No! I was just prepared for the worst!"
Hugh: "....."

It is nice to seed plot seeds that were planted in an earlier chapter bear fruit later on. We readers may be impatient, but can have confidence that you will reveal your vision in the fullness of time. Even if as one question is answered, another one pops up.

Well done.

I really hope it does all come together well. I'm still as much a novice writer as I am a novice artist. I look back at where I started and curse myself for mistakes that I've made that I have to stick to, but I move on. This comic is definitely more of a learning experience, I'm just glad I can entertain while I learn :)

Everybody has to start someplace. Whatever your particular field you build your skill set and your confidence in your technique.

Ah, thank you so much :)

I feel like I'm getting better, yes. I've wrangled in some of the looser ends a bit and I'm altering things to make sure the plot stays consistent in tone.

People can expect things to build to intensity from here, I hope :)

Fantastic work. Lots of exposition and wonderful stuff up to this point. (binging is so fun) Imma have to make another run through the series soon to remind myself of things I missed.
I always like to take the time to look carefully though the pages from an artist' perspective and lots of details really make your world real. And the story-telling is brilliant (thinking about the panel with the clock on the page before the time jump... and I was like "hmm?" And then it added up.)
Looks like these guys are gearing up for a war. Should be exciting!
Keep up the great work.

Thanks, man!

I tried to front load the story with character development/character building so that people actually cared about these people before I got to too much exposition, or before the stakes started to go up. Hopefully it's working :)

I have to admit I do the same thing you do where I look at how something is drawn and go "Ah okay so they did this" etc., but I have to admit your shading and coloring techniques elude me ;)

I do hope I don't disappoint when all this starts coming to a head, heheh :) Thanks again!

I can't get over how fashionable Jaunt is in every single panel. Every single one! He oozes charisma!

I've come to the conclusion that Jaunt is just sort of flying by the seat of his pants 95% of the time and people just trust he knows what he's doing because he dresses well and looks self-satisfied. It's okay, Jaunt, that's my strategy too!
