Aww... Poor, poor Jaunt. So used to being completely dominant over the "pitiful" humans and now... what? Wait... don't... don't you come over here... Aaaaaahhhhh...

I was kinda hoping he would rip them to shreds. That would have been faithful to the source material, where the heroes of the stories always end up dead or in a padded cell

You're right about that, but there's a few things to consider!

In terms of how I'm telling this story, that would have made it VERY BORING - I'm not against spending a lot of time developing a character that is destined to die, but that's really what Irwen was at the beginning was for. We're supposed to understand that Jaunt is powerful and has no difficulty killing humans, so with that threat in place you're able to understand the danger Chase and Clara are in.

Now, with this turn of events, it's setting the story up for the direction I want it to go - THIS is where I wanted to split from the formula, so since you see that, I'm taking it as a success! After all the tagline of this series is "Lovecraft Differently"

:)

As Mistaken said, that was the whole point of the intro with Irwen.

Also I'm still not really convinced Clara/Chase are the heroes, intentions aside.

Oh gosh. That doesn't mean Jaunt won't get super mad and start picking up things and throwing it at them, I mean, THAT probably won't pass through them so easily >_>

The song "You Can't Touch This" from MC Hammer came to mind when I read this page.

I love where your comic is going old friend. My only complaint/request is that there be some back buttons at the top of the page so I don't shut my eyes and madly scroll down hoping I don't ruin the panel by reading it out of order if I miss one. I asked Crow about this and he suggested you may not have the wherewithal to make it so...this saddens me deeply. Still love how this is developing though! :)

I actually DON'T know how to do that. I could turn to the forums and see if anyone knows how to do it, but I'm sorta thinking about having a real web person do real site design stuff for me? We'll see how it all goes.

I'm really glad that you like it, though :) Hope you're well.

Wow wow wow. I started reading your comic today and I love it. All of it. Absolutely love it. Amazing. Now I'm only startin' to read Lovecraft's works so I have to wonder: what direction will it go from here? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... *Ponders.*

Hey, thank you, I super appreciate it! It means a lot to me :)

I can tell you it's not going anywhere you'd think a Lovecraft story would go. I'm keeping elements of the formula but putting a more action-y bend on it.

Well I can say, Mistaken that you are makin' it more action-y certainly. But more comedic. And yes, the question is there for all fiction to come after Lovecraft's time; What if some beings/entities he described to the best of his abilities came to try and live here on our planet and in our world? Why not? Maybe some of them do want a more normal, simple life like the rest of us. No?

I figured out who it was pretty quick, heheh :)

It's hard for me to comment on your speculation, unfortunately, because it ties in a lot with the plot to come, so, I guess if it's any consolation you get to know that I'm gonna touch on the subject! It's just unfortunate I have such a slow upload schedule :(
