Good news for Hugh fans! I think that's most of you, but hard to be sure :)

Have a good day, everyone!

Whats a 2nd heart, forth brain hemisphere, or eldritch co-habitation amongst good folks?

It's not like gasp, !science! can be all fixing, oh..

Still, loving the little touches on the doc here, and the dead bolt on the door for the more unruly little fishies.

Hah! Yeah, what's the harm!?

Science at this time period is a little iffy, unfortunately.. but yeah, cool that you noticed the deadbolt door, probably for the exact purpose you mentioned ;)

They have been converted into offices but Austin State Hospital in Austin, Tx still has some of the old fashioned doors in the original building.

Albert looks like a doc who you can trust! (If you are a fish-person.)

He's more of a 'smart-enough-to-help' sort than an actual doctor, but our healthcare staff back then was a lot more loosely defined..

Bah. I'm sure there are ways to give Hugh new eyes, if it comes to that. What form they'll take, and what he'll actually be able to see after that point, remains a mystery, heh.

I see. What side effects the spells had on Jack then? At least I think Jaunt healed him using spells or such.

Losing your eyesight is terrible no matter what. Double for a soft-hearted guy like Hugh. Hopefully not but perhaps this incident will change him somehow...

That's a very good question! What kind of side-effects WERE imparted on Jack? If any? :D

Hopefully Hugh won't be too impacted, but yeah, I can't even imagine losing eyesight. It would be the worst :I

Oh, no, poor Hugh. :(

...though now I'm wondering about the price exacted in terms of soul-tapping for mystical prosthetics.

Heheh, are we starting to notice a theme of sacrifice a little? :D But yeah, Hugh got a raw deal here. At least he's not dead, though!

Hmmm, can Albert perceive Nyarolthotep? He seems awfully calm for being in the presence of an eldritch horror from beyond the stars.
Maybe Jaunt can find Hugh something else from the curiosity shop to help with the vision.

I like to think of Al as being in part of the 'inner cloister', or people who have been introduced to a larger part of the conspiracy. The thought did cross my mind, though - I figure Al might be more susceptible to the horror since he's got a brain big enough to process the implications, but.. apparently he's alright for the time being. I would believe that Nyar could make himself imperceptible, though.

The shop is a possibility though! If it weren't for his dimensional tethering, it might be a thing to do :D

Poor Hugh!! He deserved absolutely none of this.
Great shot of Al + background in panel 2!

A Deep One doctor. That opens up all kinds of options for the story. Well played, sir.

I am nonetheless keeping my fingers crossed for Hugh. And his eyes.

Al's not so much a doctor rather than competent enough to help out a doctor, but yeah - everyone's hoping for Hugh :D

Maybe he'll get a blindfold of vision with glowy eyes.

WE ARE NOT PREPARED!
