Jaime Saetern everyone! Jamie is our second Season 1 Kickstarter gust star (Will and his car and his weird Kangaroo appeared a few strips back). Thanks for your support Jamie!
Anyway, the voting is going great, and we’re up to #7 on the TWC top 10! My hope was to get to #5, but that’s about 1000 votes away. Not impossible, but I don’t think we’ll get there by the end of the month. Oh well. But! But! we got to #7 from like… 90… and that’s pretty amazing. You guys are fantastic. My original plan was to do a full week of 7 strips for the first week of November if we hit #5. But if we can maintain the #7 spot for the rest of the month I’ll do a week of 5 strips instead. That’s pretty good, right? Anyway, keep voting, so we can maintain our position.
Also, if you live in Portland Oregon you should check out the Women of Wonder event at Excalibur comics this Sunday from noon- 6pm. This is a Wonder Woman inspired charity auction featuring original art by dozens of cartoonists (including myself). Come by and see some art or place a bid for charity! My contribution is this 9 x 12 pen and ink illustration, hand colored with Copic markers. It was tons of fun and you can totally big on it if you want.
I know that people will hate me for saying this but you will get more mileage out of ten days of comics (5 comics — one every TWO days) as that will get you lots more votes–especially if you do those starting Tuesday (November 1st). Now that you are in the top ten it is time to get to #5 early in the month and hold on to it like a rabid… er what is that giant Pikachu called again…?
Also, if you add the MWF schedule it will be like a bonus, because it will end up like 8 comics over 2 weeks to something, which will make everyone happy 🙂
Raichu (not that I have my Pokemon cards in my desk drawer or anything like that…)
more like a rabid raticate XD
Hey now, the kangaroo may be weird but at least I don’t hang out with mermaid bitches.
And they smoke. How does a water creature smoke? It’s like fire pokemon getting burned – it shouldn’t happen.
Anyhow, great to see another member of the ranks of the doomed.
But that’s what makes them so cool! They are an anachronism. They smoke, they drink, and they are super-hot uptight girls whose breasts have magical hypnosis powers over snakes (see above and first appearance of the BM’s). The BM’s have serious plot potential as long term pseudo-antagonists.
I figured that was why they spent so much time on dry land – because most of the really popular vices like smoking & drinking don’t work under water.
Well, they can’t really be bitchy and annoy everyone if they were actually swimming and frolicking all day long (like the not-so-bitchy mermaids).
Woohoo! 😀 Imma gonna keep on voting everyday!
That guy seems a little…. creepy.
Kinda reminds of Donnie Darko…
Everybody in the fantasy world has their own agenda. Also name dropping the Medusa’s mom , perhaps that why the Mermaid was in the tavern in the first place. Also Marah vs Pikatroll totally called it.
So the unibrow does run in the family. Jamie the one that interrupted MM and one of the B-mermaid. Jamie might be working for Medusa’s mom is my suspicion because that seemed to perfect of a interruption.
It figures. The one and only time one of the Bitchy Mermaids tries to say something non-bitchy (and probably important), someone stops her. I sense impending doomage.
Yay I made it in the medusa comic! Btw my first names spelled Jaime not Jamie but no biggie.
Ahhhh! How did I… I’ll fix that!
Thanks! Can’t wait to see what happens next! Btw me in an apron ain’t half bad. Awesome!
Secret: Everyone looks good in a apron.
What would be nice (ranging from subtle hinting to polite request here) is if we eventually got a group shot of all the guests. Even if it is the chainsaw unicorn standing over a pile of corpses or a row of bare feet with toetags.
Hmm… I’ll see what I can do.
… um… sorry, I guess I am a total CU fanboy :-p
I have MODEST MEDUSA listed in the iPhone app “Web Comic du Jour” by an email request. Maybe the Android operating system has this app too? Been voting on 6 different computers a day on one day it was 11! Been telling friends and family about MM.
But… mermaids don’t have dicks…. |:
…. do they? O.O’
Not the merMAIDS, no.
now that would be a spicy meatball with marah sauce! lol!
Eat it! Eat it!
As much as I love your comics I couldn’t help but realise, almost all of the charakters have the same facial expression. Especially the monster tend to loo have the exact same expression since most of them seem to have those weird freaky eyes.
I will admit to having a stock set of expressions that I use.
This is true, but not a problem, for 2 reasons:
#1: Jake manages to get a LOT of facial expressions out of such simple drawings! So them looking alike or their faces having ‘the same’ expression doesn’t get in the way. If it’s important? You can easily tell what the character is expressing.
#2 It’s his style! Other comic artists draw people “that all look the same” too!
It would be creepy if each character was drawn a different way (style)… like those ransom notes cut out of magazine letters: with different fonts, sizes and colours!
Okay, I almost choked on my coffee when I reached the last panel XDD AWESOME reaction XD
the funniest thing is that i’m not exactly sure which one of them said that in the last panel. XD
