This is starting to be one of those situations where we ask which one of these guys has more humanity left. :/

This scene seems familiar.

Soo...

Hugh is Luke Skywalker,
Irwin is the Emperor,
and Jaunt is...Darth Vader?

That's confusing.

Which is perfect! :D

... If Hugh survives this, he's probably going to be a variant from the usual fish man.

Irwin is at point blank range, also known as shooting fish men in a barrel. Poor Hugh!

I have got a feeling he is the next one of Jaunt's men headed for an extended stay in the hospital.

Shooting fish men in a barrel, for shame! XD

Let's see how they get out of this, first, or who does..

Yeah, I'm not the sort of person that gets really attached to their characters, but for whatever reason I still had trouble drawing Hugh like this, for sure.

I happen to think next page is one of the best ones I've ever drawn, so, hopefully you guys like it too :)

Jaunt can't teleport himself. However, he can, oh, I don't know, teleport Irwin's head from his shoulders, maybe? Or maybe he'll use the trick he did with Hugh, and launch Irwin into orbit. Or teleport him to the surface of the sun (For an epic burn in return for what has happened to Hugh). That anchor bullet prevents self-teleportation, but Jaunt has a lot more than that up his sleeve.

Ouch, Hugh's eyeballs are on fire, meaning he's burning on the inside. That's horrible!

Oh! No, not intentional, just me being bad at depicting someone being attacked by a flamethrower I guess :'D

... I hope people can give me a pass on that one?

Ya know if that gem gave Huh better pain tolerance everything could have backfired and we could witness a literal flaming uppercut.
As sick as that'd be, I might add to this comment.
OH NO HUGH IS ON FIRE NONONO STOP
(Absolutely love the comic, can't wait for the finale of the chapter and to see what else there will be!)

I suspect his skin is fine, thanks to the magical device. But since it doesn't provide pyrophytic properties, the heat transfers through into his insides. He's literally being cooked alive under his skin. I cannot even begin to fathom what that kind of wound is like.

Eugh, yeah fire from the inside probably means he's dead at this point. While there are healing powers that can be used, that much damage to the internals, literally on fire from within is pretty hard to come back from I'd imagine

Whaaat, a Level comment!? Thanks, my dude! I'm glad you like the comic :)

In terms of speculating on Hugh's well-being, err.. I won't! But to see people doing so always makes me happy, the investment is what I am mostly paid with :)

Those burning eyes look creepy though :/
Really worried about permanent damage but then Jaunt was capable restoring Jack so...
I mean, if Hugh goes blind then damn.

Tbh, I get the thing about humanity but... It is a fish guy. Imagine this non-human is charging at you and you have a flamethrower. Would you stop because a monster is screaming? Hm.

Yeah, that panel in particular was rough, as was panel 4, actually. Something about the act of condemning someone to death doesn't sit well with me, it turns out!

We'll have to see if Jaunt can get to Hugh in time to do something about the damage, or what kind of trickery will need to take place.

That is actually a really good question though - if a monster starts screaming for help, do you press the attack? I was hoping it was a question people would ask, actually...
