Sound reference!

So, I think I'm going to take a three week break. Getting used to the new job and getting my buffer built up, I really could use the time. It'll be well spent though! I'm gonna try to get a couple things done during the break aside from just comic pages, we'll see how that all pans out :)

Enjoy the ominous page!

Edit: to clarify I'll be taking the break when this chapter ends, which is Friday. One more page!

Enjoy your break, you've left us a great page to ponder over in the mean time. That last panel really speaks to Jack's desperate situation. Who, Who is that stranger in the mist?

My bet's on Roy. If it is, I'm interested to see what he's there for, because you know it's no damn coincidence, heh.

Have a good break, MP! Hope it serves to clear and refresh.

Looking at the silhouette (is that the right term?) my first though was that it is a woman. Then a guy judging by the legs and then figures it could be Roy. Yep!

I think so too. He is just as much scheming and has ears everywhere. If he offers some kind of a deal then I will not be surprised either.
He is the guy to play as many sides as possible. Or maybe he just wants to finish off Jack. Sure.

IF it is Roy, of course :D

Roy's not a bad guess! I think people will be surprised and confused... which is why I'm gonna recommend that after tomorrow's page and some time during the break, maybe taking some time to read through the whole thing and get the full experience of this arc :)

Ay! Enjoy your well deserved break, son :D

I guess I have to wait and see if Jack is going to die. I said it once before but Jack is in a really tight spot. He lost all his important encounters, had miserable luck and now he is on the verge of death once again :/

Unless you pull something and Jack becomes another faction of his own I guess it is time to say:

"Hit the road Jack
and do not you come back
more no more no more no more"
:D

I will when it starts :)

When you see who it is next page, the silhouette will make more sense. The reveal might require a re-read to get an idea for who it is, though..

Is there an actual bird present, or does the breathing of the injured Jack just happen to sound exactly like that??

There is a bird! The whippoorwill has some connotations with native americans and with Lovecraft himself, actually :D

What kind of bird has no pupils and whiskers??? That's creepier than the mysterious figure stepping out of a green fog! :D

Enjoy your break from posting!

I thought of a zombie bird first, but indeed, this bird has hairy feathers on its chin.

They're pretty freaky looking! Hopefully next time I draw one I do it better justice D:

Oh my, I just realized that Jaunt probably cannot come for help yet.

(And I have no idea who the walker might be. With a waist and hip like a woman...)

Happy Easter and a nice holiday!

Nope... Jaunt is not rescue-ready..

I am personally giddy to know how people will react to tomorrow's page. I know I'm probably setting myself up for disappointment :')

...A whippoorwill. Oh heavens that’s terrifying. Poor Jack... They missed Old Man Whateley, got Lavinia, and just managed to avoid Wilber’s soul when they realized what it was—and Twin got them. They never predicted wrong, though. Wonder how they’ll react when they realize what Jack is...?

I was waiting to see which of my readers would catch on ;)

Notice that the calling stopped before Jack has died, though... what could get it to stop?
