Hello folks, I hope the day finds you well.

I've been going to job interviews for a few weeks now - I haven't been able to find anything with decent pay, and even some of the jobs with weak pay aren't calling me back. This extended period of unemployment is really starting to stress me out.

I don't want to take another break but I also don't want to make subpar material - I can feel the burn out approaching. Here's hoping I catch some relief before it comes to that point.

There doesn't happen to be a reader that's hiring, is there? ;)

That looks like a standard book advertising the Cult of Dagon. I would think that the church in Innsmouth would have a number of them in its foyer. Of course Chase and Claire can hardly go back there to do some more research.

Jack is getting quite the earful!

It would be pretty tough to go back there at this point, haha. If Jack can hear what's going on, he definitely knows the plan now!

I understand they cannot see Jack and they think the monsters are probably back in their hideouts but... Come on Chase!! Who the hell talks about the amulet out in the open right after a suspicious meeting and lots of trouble with men in black? And sends Clara alone to get it? Probably alone. Cannot say.
Jack clearly overheard everything and now it is a matter of attacking one of them.
Maybe I am thinking too much but this seems like a very bad move for someone who is/was an investigator. Hm. Monster spies everywhere!! Or the FBI.
I guess it is time for the ball to return to Jaunt for a bit because he was either getting a beating or middle managers shouting at him...

:(
CAN YOU CODE ROBOTS OR RELATED OR ANNs!?

Hee hee!

I'm excited to see how you react as the chapter progresses..

I really like what you did with the sky on this scene! There's a lovely, soft gradation of colors that gives the appearance of Dusk settling in and heading towards evening. While the world may be going mad around them, and their lives are in even more danger now than before, it's nice to see the natural world still has some beauty to offer. :)

I think panel one Clara is the most subdued (and tired) version of her we've seen yet, and with good reason. She has a lot of pluck and is a smart gal, but the gravity of their situation seems to be catching up with her finally. I hope she gets a good night's sleep! She and Chase could certainly use it, and hopefully Jack won't disturb them.

Thank you - I have trouble with sky scenes. I think my favorite panel in terms of sky is the one where we reveal Irwin on the "tombstone house" in chapter eight - that panel turned out REALLY great I thought.

I'm sure Jack understands how tired they must be. He's going to give them a break.. right? :D

2nded. I just realized that you have some readers that are "guests", so there are more readers than subscribers... No idea how may potential supporters there might be, wild guess: 10%... But even a few $ multiplied by 10% of your readers would help, isn't it?

Maybe add some tiers to your Patreon. $5 see comics a day early. everyone who contributes $10 is eligible for a monthly drawing for a free commission. Create some incentive to get folks to want to contribute more.

It sounds like a good idea, but I also don't want to step on any toes. I've got some really loyal donors so far, and because of random life events I don't ALWAYS end up holding up my end of the bargain. It would be really help if I had a more stable living and work environment.

It's all stuff I have to think about, for sure, and I appreciate the suggestions! :)

Ya but... No other options? :/
I cannot use Patreon.
Some people have a donation link but I guess some find that too public.

Clara's hair looks a little more shaggy, indicating that she's more tired?


Sorry to hear about your job troubles, hope you get better :)

She surely is, but my human hands can only maintain so much consistency. I'm trying to improve on that, though.

I appreciate your well wishes! I'm still applying.. still looking!

Clara in panel 1 giving Chase the "Dude, I'm not stupid"look.
The book makes me think of an old printing of Dickens that I have. Deep green canvas cover with gold leaf lettering.

I love the Clara Eyeroll - we got to see her do a pretty strong one with Paulie Giotti in the truck, too, heh!

I always thought green and gold leaf was a good color combination, myself :)

Aww I still think the little fish logo is so cute.

You could always join AmeriCorps, Seth!! We're always hiring! You just have to be okay with getting your hands dirty!
