Back to no color? I hope you’ll give this one a pass. I spent Saturday in the studio working on this strip for 24 hour comic day. It’s full of guest stars., including our USPS woman, the woman who runs J.C. Rice Noodles, my studio mates Barry Deutsch, Ben hsu (represented here by his ponies) and the delivery girl from Pegasusdeliveryportland.com. This was a lot of fun, but I just didn’t have time to color it. 24 hours isn’t as long as you’d think!
Yay JC Rice Noodle! Yay Pegasus Delivery woman!
I love how Modest migrates south when she sleeps.
i love how at 1 am it looks like it says “I am sleep” XD
Let me get this straight. She gets up at 6am one day and 5am the next? Does that mean that she wakes up an hour earlier every day?
yes. I’m pretty similar. I have a 26 hour day on average, so I tend to get to 2 hours later each day.
That sounds like me, Jake. My “days” range from 22-30 hours.
Oh Modest, so naive, thinking Twilight Sparkle is Best Pony…
Yeah Applejack is the best main pony
ALL HAIL LORD FLUTTERSHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
All shall fall before Discord: God of Chaos!!! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Discord is best pony, now and forever.
Mail lady looks like so many of the generic women in this strip. Is it like Pokemon where they more or less clone the police and nurses?
Everyone in this strip has the same face.
And is that a cereal called sugar, a bag of sugar, or are they too much the same thing to tell the difference any more?
“Twilight Sparkle” that’s a weird way to spell Rainbow Dash
“Rainbow Dash”? That’s a weird way to spell Princess Luna.
“Princess Luna”? that’s a weird way to spell Galaxy Pegasus.
Oh, sorry. I must be getting tv shows that my 10 year old little brother watches mixed up.
No hate intended.
Now I want JC rice noodles!
I know, right?
I never realized that ben was a Brony.
This is a great comic strip Jake!
walk to store….”walk”?
Well, you don’t want to use “slither” for every way a snake moves, for variety’s sake. Think of how a snake would tiptoe, and how different that would look from it jogging- you can’t use “slither” to describe two very different actions.
Not to mention she probably doesn’t think of her movement as slithering. If there was a specific word to describe “walking with two legs,” (like there is for “walking with no legs”=slither or “moving through water”=swim) we wouldn’t use it all the time.
I’ve… spent too much thought on this, so that’s why I’ve used a two-paragraph response to a perfectly legitimate question.
7 PM is the best hour.
Wait, the J.C. Rice Noodle lady isn’t in her pseudo-cheerleader outfit.
Then again its been a year or two since I’ve seen her dressed like that.
yeah, I think she bought a new outfit.
yay ponies also great comic
So, Green Mermaid is a Friend!?!?
Awww, this is so cute and awesome! And I feel ya with the 26 hour schedule… it is not, however, conducive to full time university attendance. Plus I think I tend to go for ten hours, sleep four, then up ten more hours… which is why I woke up with fifteen minutes to get to class today. =
Awesome effort Jake, and grade A as usual.
Yeah, the 26 hour schedule is weird. I means that I’ll start a week waking up at 9am and going to sleep at 2am, and I’ll end the week at waking up at 11pm and going to bed at 4pm. It works okay for me, but none of my friends ever have any idea when I’ll be awake, and it makes planning more than a day ahead kind of hard.
Ahh yeah, with that I agree. Tuesdays and Thursdays serve to reset me, since i have to be up by 8am those days for class… except for one about a week ago where there was just no shot to make it. =
It’s also why I was dead asleep Until, oh, about 11pm local time, when everyone else is now asleep, and, of course, the day before an early class. =/
Yeah those longer then 24 hour schedule’s are oddities. Longest schedule i had to keep was 50 hours straight and awake.
I thought you and Barry were brothers before i realized the similar faces.
Bronies they are all most everyone where you least expect.
I like Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash.
I can’t imagine what you would do Jake if you ever had a child that acted similar in ways to MM.
Not one person has yet preached the Bestness of Pinkie Pie? I am disappoint in you all…
You’re the closest yet. You didn’t quite get Fluttershy, but Pinkie is second.
awwwh, I want a Modest Medusa to hang out with, so adorable, even in black and white.
I see she’s graduated from sleeping is a toilet to sleeping in an actual bed. They grow up so fast! (sniffle)
“2 am” shows how I sleep.
The ponies… always with the ponies. Why can I never escape them?! Friend somehow got me to watch a couple, and my innate fire powers activated at the theme song!
The Discord episodes were great, but that is because I’m the CHAOS sorceror, not the LAW sorceror! Chaotic Neutral all the way!
Now it follows me everywhere…. A good 4 of my 9 comics all now talk about it. Nerf This, BetweenFailures, Questionable content, now this… What next?! MOKEPON!?!?!
I swear I will set their world on fire, and make them all GLUE! Heehehee oh yes! Elmers will make a killing on MAGICAL FRIENDSHIP GLUE! Kyeheheheheheh!
Oh… aherm… right… and a hilarious filler, as always.
I’m at least glad to know that Modest is getting a healthy (-ish? for a human adult yes, but I’m not sure how that translates for a child medusa) 7 hours of sleep each night.
Iz saw Pinkie Pie
I think I need to work 7 p.m. into my schedule. XD
Fuckin’ hate ponies. the only good ones are the dead ones I use to wrap my 12-gauge with.
Wait… a Batman pillowcase, and an actual bed? Awwwww! ♡ She doesn’t sleep in the toilet anymore ♡
Wait… Does she wake up an hour earlier each day?
