– 24 hour comic day is always a weird experience for me. It’s kind of like producing a whole month of strips in a single day, but way easier because I don’t have to color them and they don’t have to fit in to the current story. I can just write whatever I want.
The Lego Medusa from the final panel is made from a few different Lego sets. I had to spend a lot of time on different Lego sites to get all the parts. I’d love it if some real Lego Modest Medusa sets existed. Maybe the house, complete with a window for Medusa to push Jake out of and a toilet for her to sleep in? Or the Pirate ship, with Marah and a giant dragon bone catapult, and a wall to crash into?
– I’ll be at Geek Girl Con in Seattle this weekend. Come by and say hi!
– Ben and Elaine are running the Kickstarter for the final volume of their LONG running Pirate/Ninja/Cat Girl/Everything webcomic Dubious Company. This is the end, and they could use your support. They’re about 2/3 of the way to their goal with 11 days to go. This is a great chance to check out the series, get some cool stuff and help out two dedicated, enthusiastic and talented creators as they wrap up a major project and move on to the next cool thing! Check out their Kickstarter here.
– If you’re enjoying Modest Medusa please consider backing my Patreon. Money from Patreon helps me pay my bills and make a living doing this comic. Every dollar helps, and I really appreciate teh support!
Sir, you just challenged the internet to build something with legos.
If enough people come to this page and read your description, it WILL happen.
As a huge Lego fan, I loved this (I proposed to my wife in a Lego store, so I clearly recognize all of those in-store “landmarks)! I may just make a Lego Medusa to keep at my desk now. I know the serpent part and hair are from the Minifig Medusa. Where did you get the blue body and head? Something is telling me that they are from a statue or something like that.
Oh, and despite my knowing that the plural of Lego is still “Lego,” I still refer to them as “Legos.” I know it’s incorrect, but I just can’t help it.
I call them Legos as well.
I’m not sure where the blue parts come from. I had to get them from an online Lego source and they were a pain to hunt down.
Hah! Legos ARE expensive! They always were; out of my entire family the only one who’d capitulate to my exorbitant Lego demands was my dad. He forked over heavily into Erector Sets. 😛 Everyone else chintzed me with Garfield and Calvin and Hobbes books.
I had no idea you could really make a lego medusa!
Yeah. I’ll see about putting together a parts list so people can order them. It cost me about $10 to order the parts once I tracked them all down.
The Medusa Lego is just a little Lego lass and therefore does not simply walk into Mordor.
I see what you did there. Lol
This was amazing. Kudos for the proper use of plural “Lego.”
I have the Medusa minifig, too. =D
Does the official one have a tail or normal legs?

I wish there was a Lego store closer to me than a couple hours drive. Walking distance would be ideal.
Oh, neat. For some reason I thought she had normal legs.
I love Legos or I guess Lego. I never knew that’s what your suppose to call them. Also remember kids DON’T EAT LEGOS! Even though I know I did that when I was little.
If she likes LEGO, she will love Play-doh and as a bonus, it tastes better than LEGO.
Not much better.
As Medusa does not have feet, she will never know the pain of stepping on a Lego brick. Lucky!
“Legos are too expensive to throw away. We’ll just wash them later.”
Pff <3 wonderful
You know, there is a Lego crowd-sourcing site at https://ideas.lego.com/ where you can submit your own designs/ideas for Lego sets, and then people show their support. I’m sure if you submitted Modest Medusa sets, we readers could make them become a thing!
Oh boy. I’ll have to think about that. That would be amazing.
I think it says on the box not to let small children play with them. Small parts and all. I have a box of LEGO somewhere but I can’t find them.
I know this is a late comment, but I just started reading the series and I love it. And because you just talked about my favorite place ever, I wanted you to know that at the pick-a-brick, I will stand there for hours making a structure with the perfect shape of the cup. Upon completion, I go online and find out the technical cost for all the Lego should be, and how much money I saved.
I’ve hit $100 bucks before.
Yeah, there’s a certain skill level involved with cramming as many legos as possible into that little tub.
I cringe a bit whenever an american says “Legos”.
But then I suppose it is a bit hypocritical since I pluralise sheep as “sheeps” sometimes… or “sheepies”. And “mouse” somehow gets pluralised as “meeces”… but that only refers to the computer peripheral, since the rodent is called a “queek”.
Random stupid thought, but I object to the fact that this snippet was not called 24-Hour- Comic-Everything Tastes Awesome.
LEGO owes you at LEAST a couple grand for this quality advertising. :))
I’ll take payment in lego!
I have that minifig, but I lost the hair.
