Man, the move was pretty tough, and I still have so much to do.

Comic production is a little behind schedule but I'm going to try my best to get my nose to the grindstone and catch back up!

Now, if Hugh was a strategist, after seeing the house was unstable, and he himself was far more durable than before, he'd start destabilizing the roof further, so that it would collapse and send both of them plummeting. Hugh could easily survive the fall with no damage thanks to the Stone Heart. His opponent... not so much.

Mm, maybe it would protect him, or maybe not? If you think about it, having tough skin wouldn't really protect the interior contents of his body so much, so it might not be the most viable strategy. I did think about that possibility when first constructing this scene :)

... as is inertia. Skulls rapidly decelerated are sometimes doing us a kindness by cracking. When they don't and the brain keeps moving forward as they bounce back (instead of losing velocity as the point of impact crumples) bad things happen.

That's entirely true, yes. I plan on exploring the different weaknesses of the ability aside from the one we already saw this chapter, heh.

Hugh's nipples are poking out?....

Pfff, haha, no! If you look a few pages back you'll see that those are holes left from bullet impacts, but yeah, I agree it didn't translate the best :p

Does Hugh even have nipples any more? Deep ones don't seem to be particularly mammalian.

Nah, at least in my view I agree with you - any remnant of the nipples would be just that, remnants, and completely vestigial.

I am surprised Hugh did not outright smashed the roof!
Yeah, this makes sense. Thigg can give him educated advice but I still think this is looking pretty bad from Irwin because Jaunt is still there and Hugh is pretty much 255 DEF mode against that gun :/

It's almost as if I wanted a pendulum effect to show the tides of battle shifting! :D Hee hee, I'm always happy to see you guessing, it is one of the greater joys that results from my efforts on this behemoth.

(Also, sick 8-bit reference with the 255 value ;) )

Haha, cool! That is why I enjoy doing the most :>
I usually say that it also goes both ways because first you need something to actually think about :D

I'm glad to see someone with this mentality - Hugh's not a super aggressive sort, so this is very much a mask for him. We'll see how long he can keep it up...

Fighting on the roof of a ramshackle house. How long can it withstand Hugh's weight as he dances around?

Bout to bring the house down, literally. Awesome ight sequence. Lots of movement.
Those gunshots aren't doing him in; close combat definitely not an option. Hugh's got this.

Heh! Hey, thank you, man :) I'm always concerned about action scenes, they're hard.

It looks like Hugh's got an advantage here, but does he have the combat experience to make something of that advantage? Let's see..!
