Hi everyone! I’m excited to announce my brand new Kickstarter, launching today! I’m producing some cute Modest Medusa face masks. If we have to go outside and face the world, why not wear something fun? I’m producing two designs (and possibly 4 more, depending on funding.
And just for fun, I’m also offering a set of Shonen anime inspired stickers!
Check out the Kickstarter project here! I hope you’ll support it!
Does anyone in their family make Kate out to be the complainer?
I’ve always portrayed her n the comic as ridiculously unreasonable and short tempered, but thats not how she is at all irl. In the comic we mostly see her interactions with Marah, and later through Marahs flashbacks. So of course Marah sees her as unreasonable. What teen wouldn’t see their mother that way?
I kinda want a mask that is just a monster mouth, maybe nose too. Ties not ear elastic though.
… alright. I’m gonna be “mean,” here.
Modest Medusa face masks? Really, Jake? I… I don’t even know what to say, to be honest. I mean, I have thoughts, but I’m trying not to be too mean. That aside, I feel like that first design is just weird and ugly. Like… I can understand having just a mouth and maybe a nose on a mask. I’ve seen plenty of those. Having a whole face on the mask, though, just makes the wearer look like they have a double-face. It’s unsettling.
Also, having that right in the comic is really gonna date this and bring up bad memories, later on, I feel. And, quite frankly, it took me out of the story. I was gonna say something about the actual plot, but I’ve completely forgotten what, now, because of the mask thing.
Anyway… sorry to be so negative. I’m just a little sick of this… period-of-time.
I feel like face masks will be a necessity for quite awhile. Maybe years. Ignoring the problem won’t help. Its a reality we all need to face. I hoped having some fun designs might encourage more people to use their masks.
I’m sorry you don’t care for the designs. I thought they were cute.
I decided to place the image for the project at the bottom of the comic because I know that many readers don’t click on the comments to see any news I have to share. Last time I ran a Kickstarter I discovered that many readers didn’t learn about it until long after it ended.
The masks are adorable, funny, and a good deal. Looks like 22 people on Kickstarter (so far) agree! 🙂
Yep, this timeline sucks (especially here in the US), but this is life now. It is cool to see masks made into fun designs. That actually brightened my day.
Did your font go on a diet? It looks much lighter. 🙂
Also: I’m loving this storyline. <3
Does the font look different?
Mmm… it looks about the same, to me.
What font is that, anyway? Is it… ACME Secret Agent?!
I wonder if the larger size of the “LEFT” in the last panel makes everything seem more slender by comparison?
Clicked back to the previous couple comics and the font in this comic does look like it’s written with a finer point (if it were hand written).
Weird. I checked and I’m using the same settings. I wonder if theres some other not-obvious setting that I accidentally changed? maybe a layer setting?
Wasn’t Marah Jake’s niece when they had this little adventure?
She is, yes. What was it that confused you?
Love that sunset
…and love the face masks.
You always rock in my book
Jake, sorry for the offtopic, but is Ghost Kiss dead ? It’s been almost two years with no update. 🙁
Thanks for asking. Its not dead, but I hate that its been so long. i have a ha;f finished chapter thats been sitting on my desk for almost two ears, and I never seem to have time to work on it. I’ve been trying really hard to clear my plate so I can get back to work on Ghost Kiss and some other stuff. I hope that will happen this summer.
Yup. Ppl sure love her back home.
