Holy....WOW. That last panel.

This is an exciting update! Is it wrong that I think Hugh is adorable?

Thanks! And absolutely not, I actually designed him to be viewed that way. He's a big 'ollllllll teddybear.

Okay that makes a lot more sense now. I'm a sucker for a big ol' teddy bear. :3

Finally, Hugh! Huzzah!

And I presume that we are seeing a meeting of the Order of Dagon or somesuch?

One thing I kinda love about your comic is that e're actually seeing the side of the monsters more than we usually do in Lovecraftian stories. Lovecraft differently, indeed!

Heh, yeah, I felt like it took too long to introduce everyone. Oh well. Probably better than having them all show up at a breakneck pace.

I thought making a story about cute monsters might make it more entertaining and interesting than a standard horror story, and the inspiration has kept me going for a while now, so it's working for me, at least!

You'll just have to see what they're up to on friday, muahaha!

Character Pacing?

Nah, I think you're doing just fine. Front loading a bunch of characters (at least for me) can leave me feeling like I don't know any of them even after this same number of updates. Taking your time I already know a good deal about these guys when their splash pages come up. It works.

Also don't get me started on x-men legends 2.

I'm glad you feel that way! It's my first real narrative so it's new territory for me, but I've got some good blueprints from all the media I've consumed.

Also, X-Men Legends 2 was bad all the way around, gameplay, story, just wow.

Might have been able to look past that, it was the 50 playable characters they dumped on you from round one that overwhelmed me.

I'm a guy who likes looking over all my options, planning out interesting teams, building on established ideas... But the pacing of that game was either "Spend 5 hours doing nothing but reading," or "ignore 90% of what you have, and never know what you're missing." Meh, Give me Champions of Norath any day.

Hell yeah! Champions of Norrath and Return To Arms were favorites of my friends and I! You got great tastes!

Hugh is ripped as fuck! I bet he works out with Aquaman.

I want to get in on your contest But I don't have the time right now. Some day I'll put together some fanart for you though. I've got a fun idea.

Ah, you mean the drawing in the bottom right? That's more of a general Deep One, not Hugh, necessarily :) But yeah that guy totes works out with Aquaman.

It's okay, I understand! Now you've got me curious to what your idea is, though, heheheh.

I must say I love the story you got going here. I had to ask though how do the deep ones where gloves if they have webbed fingers?

I super appreciate it, thank you! :)

To answer your question:

The hybrids depicted here, Hugh, Al, Marco, and Barry don't have anything in the way of webbed fingers (yet) so Hugh can wear them still :)
