Recovering from a sad weekend here. The good news is is I started working on the comic again so that I might actually be able to take a bit of a break when I take my break :)

I just want a smooth transition into the next chapter so that there's no delay once it starts up again.

Have a great week!

The work is still coming on strong. That picture of Roy in the bottom left is one of the errie shots of a human we've had in a while. I REALLY love how your style has developed over time.

Yep, he's a government man alright. They LOVE their acronyms, no matter the reason, but this one seems particularly apt; nice job! :)

I love how unflappable Clara seems to be in this whole situation. She's curious, but doesn't seem to show the least bit of reluctance to help solve the mystery. That's one brave dame! ;)

I was pretty excited when that lined up XD I actually wrote the name of the department before I noticed the acronym, believe it or not. It's not a "backcronym", hah!

And yeah, Clara, for better or for worse, seems to have a real brave face for all of this. She's definitely built for the work...

Always cool to see panels where people are just purple silhouettes (or what is the better term) because every time it feels like you are eavesdropping on a conversation that is not meant for you but you kinda want to know more :D

Anyway, this is still about the whole fishmen legend, right? I know many factors already surfaced but that was the original concern, right? For the human side.

That's kind of the feeling I'm going for :D

I always like to have this sort of voyeuristic quality to panels, because the idea is that they MIGHT be being watched, someone just might be stalking them. Who knows?

About the fish men - that's the thrust, but it seems like they're on the cusp of finding a lot more than just fish people..

What he's not telling them is that the full name of his squad is the Department of Extraordinary and Unsolved Cases, EVERYBODAAAAAAY because he needed that extra E in the acronym to make it work!!

Hah! It's true, he realized that he almost had a full word in an acronym and had to add it. Now let's put in the words usually left out and see what we get - DoEaUCE. Doe-ow-chee?

Hmm..

Back when I was at the university, I had a sign showing



DEPARTMENT
OF UNCLEAR
PHYSICS


on my flat's door :D

Not sure how many people got that there was not a typo :)


Edit: It just appeared to me that this here would be a good time to pause the flow: A calm conversation, no fight or anything alike immediately due, one can imagine that the conversation goes on for some minutes, drinks are served, everybody listens to the music,.. an anti-cliff-hanger, so to say.

(In the longer run we have a few cliff hangers hangin'... Jaunt & Nyar discussing the next steps, Jack on the roof annnd we don't know what happened to our dimensional travelers, Irwin & Thigg...

Hah! I love it. Unclear XD

While I agree with you that it would be a good time to pause without a cliffhanger, that's not really my style, is it? ;)

I have a cliffhanger coming, don't you worry...
