Hello folks! Thanksgiving vacation is over, now I have a convention to get to, and then I'm starting a new job next week!

Things are a little bit crazy so I was thinking about taking the next week off if that's okay with everyone, just while I get moved in and settled at the new place, give me some time to adjust to the new situation. If you'd rather not wait, I do have a few pages left in my buffer to burn through, and I'll figure it out from there ;)

Have a great week!

I really love that last panel.

Definitely take the time you need to settle in – moving is a big deal!

And while I'm commenting: I'm curious why you took away the Top Web Comics vote button when you switched to the new layout. TWC is how I found you in the first place, but I've always wondered whether voting on there really does anyone any good …

Thank you! I always worry I do the "shadowy reveal" too much, but I'm probably worrying over something small :)

The moving and settling is going okay, thank you!

As for the TWC thing.. I don't know, I never really saw much traction from it, but if it helped people like yourself find the comic I might have to consider re-adding it! Something to bug my website guy about I suppose :)

Wow, that is one heck of a disorientating shift of space, but it figures that Jaunt would adapt to it so quickly. Now I'm just wondering how a giant mushroom is going to fix his problem. :)

I vote that you take the next couple of weeks off to handle your move and get your job routine down. We've had a good scene change and no one is in any immediate peril, so I can be patient. ;)

Hah! Oh no, I can't rest on my laurels that long, then I start to feel anxious and guilty! :)

But you will see before long what mushroom folk have to do with his problem :)

Colors remind me of the same dimension Thigg likes to visit, haha. The one with the floating alien whales :>
Is this the same place? I always though it is like a place between dimensions where nobody can bother you but here it is probably a different place the destination. Freaking monsters have all worlds looking similar :D

Mi-Go
Myco (fungus related)
Eh... Sounds like a stretch :D

Good luck! I moved quite some time ago myself so maybe part that illness was related to a change of place and atmosphere. Happens to me sometimes as well :>

I think I might be stuck on a certain palette when it comes to alien stuff. I'll need to push to change that next time :)

It's not intended to be the same place, no - this is some geological phenomenon created by the Mi-Go right here on planet earth! And of course they're part mushroom! They're the fungi from Yuggoth :)

Thank you for the well wishes; things are going better now! I'm definitely on the recovery path now that I've settle in.

Ooh. I quite like the rather disorientating shifting-about of down and up; it conveys Jaunt's warping perspective very effectively.

...Also, "neat?" Not "clever," or "remarkable," or "ingenious?" Jaunt, you have been spending too much time around humans/human-adjacent entities.

I thought that it would come through that way, I'm glad it did :)

Hahaha, I guess "Neat" is a little out of character for him, but I was also wondering how he would react if he was on his own and not putting up a face of elegance :)

Is your new place in distorted space as well, because I can see how that could take a while to settle in to... :P

I cannot express the anticipation with which I have awaited the appearance of the Fungi from Yuggoth. Will we see their fabled brain canisters?

Now, on the other side of the equation: darn, he found them (not a great event for our human and human-thing hybrid friends).

Seriously, though, good luck in the new circumstances all around! :D

Yes, I have to walk southwest along the eastern wall and lift myself down into the living room. ;)

I hope you like the rendering of the Mi-Go, though! I know it might not be the most unique but I'm having fun with it.

Yes, yes.. now Jaunt might be on even footing again, and with a better idea of what the threat is >:D get ready, humans..!

By all means, take a break, enjoy the con, and then get settled in for your new job. It's always best to start a new job rested and with your head on straight. I also have wondered about the vote button. It's how I found this comic. I'm enjoying the color palette. I guess these must be the subtly glowing fungi that provide light for all those protagonists who lose their way in caves.

PAX was, in actuality, the most fun I have had doing anything in my entire life. I'm nearly positive this is the truth. It was a good time at the very least ;)

I'm surprised to have found such loyal readers through TWC! I might have to re-add that after all. Thanks for the input :)

And yes, the idea was for glowing fungi - not necessarily to help those that can't see, but it's certainly a beneficial side effect!

Take all the time you need. Your wellbeing is the primary concern. Everything else come later.

Take all the time you need.

Jaunt seems to have a lot of knowledge about things that do not seem to be related to his mission in Innsmouth. Interesting.

Thank you, Bob :)

As for what Jaunt knows - beyond his mission in Innsmouth, he's an avid student of magics of all kinds. He knows distorted space when he sees it ;D
