Level playing field? Well, not quite, but, not AS uneven...

You've marred his amazing complexion! You fiend! Do you know how much work he has to do to pull that look off and look good doing it?

Alas the proper fashions are lost on some folks. But hehe, its interesting seeing a rather unique counter show itself to one problem. Have at you sir!

Hah! Oh I'm sure Hugh will be fine :D

It might not be the most creative thing that Hugh has going on for him but I plan on having fun with it, I hope you all like it :)

Hey, he's a tank now.
Now lets see if those two have any heavy artillery gear to punch through that armor.
... or something more accurate that can consistently hit the same point multiple times in a row. I mean, his skin's still cracking sommat from the energy blasts.


..... Yes I've forgotten the names of the three characters here other than Jaunt. There's no cast list I can check here either, which is annoying.

Oh shoot, I DO need a cast page D: Sorry!

Hugh's the big fish man, Irwin's the human, and Thigg is the purple alien monster thing, for the record :)

I'll put a cast page on the list of things to do, thanks for reminding me!

Blobby was ahead of Jaunt but Jaunt was slightly ahead of blobby so... Is he going to counter it? Hm.
Kind of cool the skin served its purpose right away even if Jaunt did not know about possible encounters.
Irwin needs to come up with something else because once a close range fighter gets close, it is over unless he charges Jaunt first.

I can actually hear the gun making slightly dulled blaster sounds, haha :D

Hard to know who's got what going for them at this point, heheh. The big problem is how do you close the distance, here? Hugh isn't exactly the most mobile of the crew...

And yeah! That's about right for how it sounds in my head :D

Now the question is, how fast can Hugh climb, or how high can he jump?

Hugh looks very vexed in that final panel. It bodes ill for Chase and company.

Hey, maybe Hugh will have a dueling scar with which to impress the ladies off Devil's Reef.

As an aside HPL didn't develop his female characters very much. A few modern writers have explored the idea but I'm wondering. Will we see a female deep one?

Hah! XD Hey, check out my scar - I got it while dueling with some human with some crazy alien infection - it was pretty cool, shoulda seen it.

I don't tend to write a lot of female roles, myself, which is something I'm really kicking myself over because it's difficult to change a lot of what I've already set in motion. I didn't want to do the 'girl deep one' thing because I didn't want to make a token sort of character.

In hindsight, Imemi would have been pretty awesome as a female character. Damn.

Here's the thing... when a guy knowingly takes a boxing stance when he's being held at gun point... there's very likely a reason you should not underestimate that decision.

Unless said person is just kinda acting on reflexes and doesn't have a plan :D

Either way, Irwin's learning some stuff..

That Guy Over There

There's some interesting parallels here. One of them is a fishman who is slowly changing into something that will be fish-"man" in name only: all fish, no man. The other is a human being whose body has been taken over by an alien lifeform. Hugh is probably the most human of the fishmen. Irwin is pretty much the least 'human' now of the human characters (that we know of). Perhaps in another life they might have been friends, but tragically, fate has forced them to be bitter enemies.

Straight into the MGR soundtrack? Oh my :D

And yeah, that's definitely not something lost on me ;) You might want to check someone making that observation in the comic itself.
