"Ha! This isn't even my final form!"

Panel 6 is great,especially Irwin's expression.
I guess Hugh will find out if the projectile anchors Jaunt against terrestrial locomotion in the same manner that it impedes his dimensional shifts.

Haha, oh man, if only we got to see Thigg in its "true form", heh :D

Hopefully he can figure out how to get down so as not to leave Jaunt alone against this thing...

That's uh... Not a bad escape method. Based on this, I assume Thigg hasn't spread to Irwin's spine yet. Or else Thigg just doesn't care about Irwin's orientation and probable vertigo.

Aside from his slow consumption/replacement of Irwin's organic material, Thigg is proving time and again to be a really interesting asset. And I'm sure you're having a lot of fun with it's developing powers MP.

Thigg probably wasn't thinking about it until the wellspring of vertigo he received through their psychic connection XD

He's actually not eating Irwin, just kind of covering his torso as a sort of 'dermal plating' to help protect him :) But yeah, Thigg has been an absolute BLAST to figure out, thank you :D

And the award for "Unique Flying Sequence" goes to...

I get dizzy just thinking about being in his situation/(literal) position!

Haha! If you put enough qualifiers on, someone's gonna win an award for SOMETHING!

Yeah, I thought people might get really weirded out by this, so it makes me happy to see I was right! :D Hehehe

Oh wow, Thigg can give Irwin a lot of utility. There has to be some drawback because like this he can pretty much transform into anything necessary.
Cool though because it shows how powerful the blob actually is. He just needed a host :D

He's like a swiss army shoggoth!?

Haha, there are limits and drawbacks, yeah, but he's supposed to be a pretty powerful character, actually. Things will continue to develop :)

That is a very weird way to fly, looking up at the sky. You have come up with a unique twist. Bravo!

Which one of them is navigating? I assumed Thigg was, since he's the one the wings are made of, but Irwin's been mostly in charge of locomotion so far. Either way, if Thigg is, I guess he hasn't got any orientation issues on account of facing the sky as well. This was a fun twist!

It's sort of both of them - Thigg has gotten more used to Irwin's brain chemistry, so he can help Irwin feel less vertigo, or fear, or pain. This also means that through psychic and chemical influence he can basically convince Irwin to do whatever he wants, if he wanted to... kinda scary.

Either way, thank you! :D

Now that is nice! Someone above said, yes, awesome to see Thigg the blob can use his powers in a number of ways that gives the host an advantage.
But i called it, heh? Get out of there; don't want to mess with Hugh in this empowered form.

I dunno how I missed this comment, sorry D:

Yeah, I think the appropriate response is definitely GTFO in this situation.
