My guess: 1920s era Men in Black?

Well, unless Will Smith is time-traveling again to come in and drop some beats for the early MiB's, my guess is Roy's just showing off his loyal attack-dogs.

Good lord, I suddenly want to see "Men In Black Meet The Mythos". Plenty of aliens there. Technically.

Men in black meets mythos would be pretty neat to see - granted, that is sort of what I'm going for, so maybe some of that will come across :)

I LOVE THIS DROOPY-FACED BOY 10/10 WOULD DO OUIJA SESSION WITH

Clearly those aren't MIBs, clearly that's just a blues band about to play some rocking tunes on their oddly-shaped harmonicas. My trust is utter and complete.

Haha, I was really happy with how the expression came across here :D

And yeah, I think you're right - it's just a larger, time traveling blues bros.

Right? :D

In the background we hear Blue Oyster Cult playing ETI as a 20's jazz tune. One wonders what sort of help Roy is whistling up.

Ah well. Even more suspicious now! I mean, these are not monsters (unless perfectly disguised ones) but then I do not have any reason to say Roy would dump his story and then crossed them.
What good is it for humans to guard monster secrets unless they are are allied.

A good point - thankfully you'll get a better idea of what's going on with today's page :D

As always I'm happy to watch gears turn, though, hee hee

Chase reminds me of Doc Holiday, here.

That aside... Roy isn't concerned but somehow I don't think these are his men. I have no clue about what's going on.

Doc Holliday, right. (See? I don't notice my own typos.)

And because he looks a bit sickly, with this grey shadow on his eyes and his cheeks sunken, but still very much like a confident gunman, especially in panel 2 he looks like he's about to draw. (A revolver, I must not forget that artists may associate drawing with something different than cowboys and sharpshooters :D)

Now here's the question:

Is Roy betraying them and signaling his men there?

Or are those NOT his men and him whistling is causing the agents to pull their guns and the next page will have Roy's people jumping them?

Or, they're there to raid to the speakeasy, so that Roy can look like he's doing "real work."

That would be my guess as well, but I wouldn't put anything past Roy at this point. The real question is, what's Jack going to do? Continue to observe?

Also, what's up with Chase's eyes? Clara's look normal, but his look like they're black with a faint blue glow for panels two and three.

By the way, not sure if it's intentional or not, but it looks like Roy is trying to channel a bit of (Humphrey) Bogart in panel three with those tired eyes and the way his mouth is holding the cigarette. Nicely done!

Ah, you guys :D I love it. Hopefully today's page will kinda clear things up, but this is the kind of speculation I wanted to see from this page...

And the Bogart thing was intentional, I'm glad that it turned out as well as it did!

The thing that leapt out to me was Roy putting his hand on Claire's shoulder in the third panel. It is almost as if he wants to slow down her progress and leave more space between he & Claire and Chase. Wouldn't want to get caught in the crossfire.

Yeah, Chase is grabbing Clara's shoulder in order to stop her since he noticed all the strange, same-suited men hanging out around them.

Turns out his concern was valid?

Roy looks disturbingly fishy as he ambles out of the drinkin' den.
