I wouldn't say that this cat is as important as say, a cat of Ulthar. This is just a cat XD

significance

I believe the significance is not the cat, but the phrase, "Come and get it."

Unfortunately said police department is out of the question because Chase is no longer there...
Needles in a haystack...

He might as well jump down and have some of that cat food.

It's true, he'd have to catch a lucky break at this point :D

Who knows how hungry he is... or what he's eyeing in terms of taking care of any hunger he has...

Try killing a few random humans in a suitably eldritch fashion. Then the noseyinvestigators will come to you - or at least the crime scene.

Jack is looking stealthy, or is it just chilly. I would think he is pretty stealthy as is.

So, I've been thinking...
I feel like with the way you've made both sides of the conflict the heroes you've kinda established a no-win situation for your readers.
As it is now, there has not been a real "villain" of this story, meaning someone (or something) we'd want to see defeated in the end and I think, right now, unless you have something really good up your sleeve, it's going to be tough to conclude this story in a satisfying manner.
Obviously it's still somewhat early and I'm aware that what seems to be the main conflict right now might not end up being the real focus of the story, but as I said, it's just something I've been contemplating...

And just to be clear, I'm just sharing my concerns. I do still trust you and your ability to write a great story.

Wow! This is a good comment to get!

I really appreciate your concern, and that you've brought it to my attention :) I'm glad to be small enough to be able to get critiques like this, too, because I feel a lot of bigger story makers miss out on opportunities like this.

I will say, I totally understand your concern and I see it myself. You actually made me run through my outline for the story to make sure things were in place XD

As usual I moved a thing here or there, but to ME, it makes sense. I believe that in not too long the story is going to take a turn that people will really enjoy. I know people like it so far, but I think the moment, the plot element that makes the story memorable is yet to come. It might not end the way everyone wants, but I'm going to try and make sure it's the story that I want to tell :)

Thanks again - I may not know who you are, but know that you are appreciated!

First, you're very welcome! Second, it's really great to hear that you see where I'm coming from and that there are things in place.

Also, good on you for being so open to criticism and handling it so well! That's sadly not always a given.

@Citizen, I see what you did there with the name ;)

I'm happy to address concerns, and even happier to receive criticism - as long as it's constructive it means that someone's invested enough to want to help. And if it's not constructive, it means I'm popular enough to have haters :D (I don't seem to be popular enough in that regard.)

... Careful there man, sounds like a bit of Lovecraftian madness may be bleeding over.

Be patient. I have the feeling that your surveillance is about to pay off.

I suspect that we are still seeing the players being set up for the first act.

Haters

Hmmm. Haters may come in time but a Lovecraft based comic is still playing to a pretty niche market.I'm speaking for myself but I'll bet that many of your initial readers are Lovecraft fanboy/girls. Sooner or later you will probably get an outraged note about how"That's not canon!" even though HPL never espoused any particular idea of having canon. Hang in there, you will enrage somebody sooner or later.

It's true, I do have a pretty niche audience. I'm hoping that expands via word of mouth some day, but I suspect that might not start happening until I have my biiiiig reveal in chapter 9 :D

I've had some people ask me about some questionable stuff as it relates to the canon, but it's pretty easy to point out that there is no real CANON, just kind of a guideline and then all kinds of ideas from other people mixed in.

In terms of haters, though, I'm talking more along the lines of "Your art sucks" or "your story is terrible" haters, heh.

And I am too now wondering what Jack (and the rest of the monsters, for that matter) eats. Is this that cat's final moments? Quick swoop? Hehe.
Those pesky humans! Always stick their nose.

Fortunately at this point we get to see the cat's fate, gehehehe...

Having re-discovered this webcomic, I am both happy and unhappy to say I'm all caught up. But also eager to see where this goes next, so it all works out!

Heyyy, welcome back! I'm glad you like it :D Sorry I can't produce it any faster than I currently do, I'd love to make it a full time job some day if I can manage.

We'll see, but I hope it continues to entertain :)
