Welp, as I thought, I already screwed up my upload schedule. Sorry guys :')

I was away from home almost all day yesterday, so when I realized I failed to schedule the upload, it was a bit too late, heh. Here's the page though! Sorry for the late upload, I'll do my best to not let that happen again :D

I thought that Jaunt worked for Nyarlathotep? Is this Thigg being confused, "fake news", or true?

If you mean the ally part then I read it as Nyarl's ally. Jaunt as his ally who had his henchman stolen from him.

I think you mean the last bubble though so... Here is my uneducated opinion.
I would say Jaunt "works" for Nyarl at most. As in he has to. If he secretly does not want to or wants to free himself I do not know but it would not surprise me.
Just like I suspect for quite some time now that Jack was really just there to spy on Jaunt and if Jaunt had any real suspicions or spied on Nyarl for Yog... No idea.
Basically, I think the top is so powerful and mysterious that their motives in no way care how the game is actually played down bellow as long as results favoring whoever are apparent.
Thigg might be also playing it, sure!

Jaunt directly was uplifted by, and is 'working' for Yog. Nyarlathotep's attention is largely unwanted but respected because he is also powerful, present, and actually responds to inquiry. It's an alliance in a very technical sense, heh.

On the plus side, having his mind abruptly invaded does seem to have at least temporarily slowed Chase down from doing...whatever he might have been about to do. Hopefully, the nausea and disabling sense of cosmic wrongness will give him a little time to equilibrate to the...nausea and disabling sense of cosmic wrongness. Also, Team Human (and Thigg) now has actual information! And they at least have the potential to pool their resources now! Good for them.

Yeah, Chase is taking a moment to deal with that SAN loss, for sure ;)

As for their resources coming together, yes, a lot of the pieces are starting to come together..

Chase is all cool about eldritch phenomena until one moves in with his brother and then he is like, "Oh God, I'm gonna puke". How human of him. Seriously though, panel four really works well for conveying Chase's horror.

That's a pretty accurate assessment. I'm glad his horror and disgust comes through, though :D

Nice to have a couple of our suppositions confirmed in panel five. Hopefully, Chase will accept the alien thing that is now Thiggwen. It will be interesting to find out eventually if he will let Claire know about this, or act like a 1920s man and seek to "protect" her.

I thought it might be a good time to have Thigg summarize some of the clues, yes - steadily getting everyone on the path :)

As for Chase, well.. we'll have to see if he grows up or he remains the manbaby he is, heh!

Now THIS is an update! Thigg brings some very relevant information to Roy, who's resources seem reasonably formbidible, at least in human terms, and that should give them some chance to actually do...something! Things are really starting to heat up. :)

I love the moment when separate plot trains collide and things start to become more complex and more interesting because of it.

Yeah, Chase. It's probably a good time to sit down. Let your brain have the spare processing that was keeping you upright. You're going to need it.

I'm glad you like it too - it's one of my favorite things! :D

And yeah, poor Chase needs a little recovery time :')

Two Sides of the Same Coin?

I am really intrigued. Is it really two different manifestations of Nyarlathotep fighting each other? Or is it something else?

Am I the only one ...

Am I the only one constantly wanting someone to yell, "What is that Thigg?!?"
