Oh. No reunion after all. This is going to be a very confusing night for Clara.

Hey guys, next week we're gonna see the end of chapter 10 - because of how many things I've got going on right now I think I'm gonna take another 3 week hiatus, or at least a 2 week. I'll keep you all posted in the meantime and I'll post sketches and stuff, but I need some time to recover my buffer again. It's up in the air whether I'll be moving or not, too. Who's to say?

Either way, see you guys next week!

It looks really cool. I especially like the detail on the character in the first 3 panels.

Ahh, thank you! I'm glad it came through, I wasn't sure if it was going to work out or not :)

Irwin let Jack go to follow him! That's my money. Makes enough sense, considering he and Thigg are still under the impression that Jaunt can't teleport right now. Figures they'll send one wounded creature to find the other.

Clara's going to have to think fast to explain this one.

But does/do Thiggwin know that Jack has a connection to Jaunt? So far I didn't think so.

Probably doesn't. That's why they're expecting Jack to physically go to him.

There's no way they're aware of the connection, but how many anthropromorphized byakhees are around? It might be easy enough to come to a conclusion :)

Poor Clara. :(

Keep going, Jack! No point in dying now. ;)

Good luck with the new job and enjoy your brief pause! I look forward to the next installment of the story. :)

We'll check in with Jack soon..

Thank you! The job is working okay so far, but we'll see how that continues. Hopefully a little break will help me keep up a good pace!

In panel 2, it looks like Jack is leaking a lot of blood/oil/whatever he has inside...

Do not tell me that is blood in the second panel. We have been there once before D:
Funny how Jack lost against both brothers now. Another loss. He has terrible terrible battle LCK stat :/

Heavy. Clara is taking this very hard even for someone who should be used to seeing monsters by now. Worse kind. But yeah, it is Irwin as well.
I am not naively hoping for some resolution. I think it is done. They cannot go back anymore. Sad.

Oh and good luck! If you are moving then I might follow your example at some later point this year :D
Chop chop!

Unfortunately your observations are correct, so far.. nobody is happy :')

You're moving too? Ooh, good luck! :D I hope it all works out!

Clara looks like a secondary sanity check *might* have been failed. Ow. Can't blame her there, though. Poor girl.

Just-- just dying on the inside a little bit, no biggie

But look at that, Jack's blood very conveniently fell inside of her rug ritual circle, now she has one less step to do when she does her weekly Saturday Satan Summoning!

That's more of a 50s thing, right? Heheh

Let's see how she'll talk her way out of this...

My mental picture of the actress that would play Clara shifts from young Mary Tyler Moore (yeah I'm old" to Eva Green as the facade of the slightly flapperish young researcher is showing some cracks. Even with Jack's goo on the rug it's going to be tough to explain. Speaking of Jack's goo, one could nerd right on out just thinking through the mechanics of his anatomy and how it functions.

I could see either! Honestly I attribute the fluctuation of actress to my inconsistencies in depection. Something to work on.

Trust me, though, there are definitely people that speculate on Jack's anatomy in numerous ways. :')

Granted, your artwork continues to evolve. I follow several long running webcomics and that evolution in the artwork is a common trait. Hopefully, that is a good omen. The other thing that changes is character development. So far, Clara has been a more of a supporting role. She seems to be an anchor point in that most if not all of the major characters (that we've met so far) have had at least one contact with her. There are implications that there is more to come but we haven't experienced much of her internal world yet. Since she is still a bit of a cipher it makes it easy to project whatever is in my head onto her presumed personality.

BANG BANG ?

25th Mar 2018, 10:27 PM

WHAT WAS THAT???

It doesn't look like Clara shot at Thiggwin, and they didn't disappear with a bang, so... Jack...? Or just banging on the door?

Personally I'd prefer you'd take one or two weeks more off and put a page (or two) more into the buffer, that would it make easier for you to deal with time-trouble and keep stress away from you. As long as you keep us posted (I'd be satisfied with comments), 5 weeks shouldn't be a problem. IMHO!

Also: Another opportunity for fan-art? ;D

(It was the door. Sorry XD)

You're my most accurate and dependable critic, now! I do appreciate getting called out on these mistakes, I mean it!

As far as a break/buffer goes, I'll be honest: I only had a two page buffer the last few weeks. I really, REALLY started to burn out. I think a three-week is in order to get that buffer back. Not enough time to get fan art though, not enough advance notice - hopefully people are cool with seeing my sketches :)

First off, thank you *blush* I hope I'm worthy. Observation is my super power but it's a poor one.

The door was my fourth guess :) No mistake here, at least I didn't meant it as such. The dramatic flow of the page is IMHO totally appropriate. Imagine seeing a horror movie scene in a cinema: The monster just got away, a quick fade to black, "BANG BANG" (unidentifyable banging), the viewers being (like me) =8-(_) "What was that??", a quick fade into Clara's room, then it turns out it was the door. No mistake.

Haha, of course you are! I appreciate it :D

I think that's kind of the thing, I think more cinematically like in the style of a movie or show, and I think that's how I put these scenes and transitions together. It might not translate as well as I intend.

Time to pay the piper. Should probably think about moving to a more secure building, assuming that you are not already kicked out of this one. <g>
