Greetings FROM THE PAAAAST!!!

If you read this when it goes up, there's a good chance I'm on the road! I'm off to Seatown to see my friend Taily, who makes Awkward Paws! I'm excited :D

Jaunt is less than excited though. Looks like trouble for our, er... hero? Hm.

Ooh, Thigg's getting cranky. Is this the mask of friendliness coming off to show the real thing? Or does he just have a temper?

Thigg's either getting cranky or just realizing it might actually be in danger, getting serious, in other words, heheh.

Looks like Hugh is trying to crawl away. This gives me hope. It may be a false hope, but this is a lovecraft universe. False hope is all we have.

Yeah, I too sense that the mask of friendliness is slipping off.

Oh come on, Thigg! You cannot kill Jaunt now! He still has plot armor, right!?

Hm. So I guess there is a chance Thigg is not a creature but was created artificially from something and for some purpose? Could be.

It could be...

and...

It could be!

Who knows how effective plot armor is, really? :D Though I will say Thigg has maybe too much personality to just be a weapon..

I'm betting that Jaunt doesn't recognize Thigg from a previous encounter. It seems like Thigg was in pretty rough shape when he and Irwin teamed up. Perhaps it had a significantly different appearance.
I would say Jaunt's best hope is some sort of outside intervention.

I'd call it a reasonable assumption that Thigg looks pretty different on its own and fully functional.

Tune in on wednesday to see what happens! :D

Dunno if there's much of a mask to slip off...

... since Irwin knew this was a (permanent) alliance of convenience to begin with. Considering how dangerous the Creeper is, if my ally couldn't finish the job handed to him on a bio-platter, then I sure as hell would do it for him, too.

Dang it Seth!! I was in the middle of eating this delicious FIG AND PIG BURGER from LOCAL BURGER SHOP LIL' WOODY'S when I glanced upon that gross-ass panel of Thigg creepin' into Irwin's arm and now I have to cleanse my mouth with this MIXED FRUITS JUICE from LOCAL IMPORT STORE UWAJIMAYA

Well I didn't TELL you to read it while we were eating, did I!? Maybe if you'd read it after we had finished seeing dead crabs and other creatures from the PUGET SOUND while were on the GOLDEN GARDENS BEACH you would be more ready to see that panel!

I am beginning to wonder just how much of Irwin is left below the neck. Less and less as time goes by, is my guess.

Unfortunately, once Jaunt is gone, Thigg has no real reason to keep Irwin alive. But, if Irwin doesn't kill Jaunt, Thigg will probably dispose of Irwin anyway. So either way, Irwin is kinda boned.

Oh there's totally a reason! Thigg's using Irwin as a disguise so that otherworldly beings don't detect it there. Jaunt had trouble telling it wasn't just Irwin, or at least knowing what was different about him. Other creatures would just suspect another human, which is why this arrangement exists to begin with :)

There seems to be another finger growing just above Thigg's eye. Preparing for the finishing strike? ;)

Yes, he's definitely sounding a bit testier at the moment--possibly pointing towards the strain of having to hold the body together and manifest three total limbs/weapons at once.

I don't think Irwin's totally boned just yet. If Thigg could have gone on a tour of Earth on his own without a human to glom onto before now, he would have. He does need Irwin . . . well, a living body . . . for the time being. Till Irwin becomes less amusing/requires too much effort, or until a better potential host comes along, perhaps.

That was actually intended to be the handle of the gun emerging so Irwin could draw it out :D

I'd say the idea that Thigg's pretty frustrated at having to keep this whole thing running is pretty accurate. It's an awful lot of work for a symbiotic entity to do!

I think there's some good surprises up my sleeve for Thigg that you guys will enjoy :)
