Seeing 'What the deuce?' in a comic has entirely made my day. This rocks so hard! XD

I am constantly delighted by your sense of comedy timing and your capacity with sight gags.

Not only do I find I'm loving this, I'm very curious as to where it''s going.

Ah you guys. It's 7 in the bloody morning and you've got me tittering like a schoolgirl. Go read Selan's particularly unsettling arse comic for more info.

Pages 14 and 15. Whoo boy...not sure if i'll finish it by 11...but i should equal at least my previous best of 16.

Ahhh, as a kid who was bhrought up on tales of Dagon and Shurab'Niggurath (seriously, there was HPL stuff in my primary school's library!), this is fucking sweet.

I particularly enjoy the way Agent E takes 3 panels to figure out there's a stygian beast coming out of the top of Wordsworth's head...

Can we assume you're going to get this one put to print as well, Mr. Douglas sir?

Page 16, which equals my best output from last year...and i'm putting my pencil down. Probably about 4 pages left...but you can all bloody well wait a day or two for the spine tingling conclusion and until i'm not falling asleep at the drawing table!!


Thanks for the kind words everyone...glad you dig it.

"Don't you speak over ME in tongues!"

You're a frigging pantsless genius, Holgate.
I love it when a plan comes together.

Having finished my comic 11 hours ago, I read yours to find both our stories have well mannered, mustachioed English gentlemen with robot sidekicks. And we both used the term 'post haste'!

Obviously, I have been set up to look like some inferior Holgate imitator. Curses!

The full page aerial shot of Europe with the intricate balloon in it is gob smackingly fantastic. Funny and beatiful to look at!

Can't wait to see the conclusion.

I'm drawn towards page 14.
It's a very lovely splash page!

Are you planing to colour these pages? I know you were talking about hand-painting them. Is that still your intention?
