Convention: Modest Medusa is coming to AoD (Anime on Display) in San Francisco Feb 18th and 19th! Ben Hsu (of Dubious Company) and I will be hosting the Dubious Medusa Panel on Saturday at 11am, ansering questions and talking about creating webcomics, self publishing, and cool stuff liek medusas and pirates! We’ll also be sharing a table all weekend long with Ewen Cluney of Neko Machi and Nick Smith of Tulip Academy! Come by and say hi, get a free sketch or buy a t-shirt or book!
Books: Most of the Kickstarter books are now in the mail, so if you haven’t recieved your yet, look for it very soon. There are stilla few people who I haven’t been able to et an address from, and i’ve had a few books returned to me as well, so if you don’t see you book in the next week and your wondering what happened… well, first check your email to see if I’ve been trying to get in touch with you, then send me an email! The other exception is Jamie Yakeleya, who contributed enough to the Kickstarter to secure the original cover art for the book. The art is currently waiting to be picked up at the frame shop down the street, so with luck it’ll be in the mail today! Sorry for the wait everyone! It’s kind of funny, but now that the whole thing is finally doen I have a pretty good system set up for handling large volumes of shipping. I think next time the whole process will go much, much faster!
“It’s a secret to everyone.” Classic.
Cool, Can’t wait for the art.
I look pissed, ha.
You probably want to really tell her, but it’s a secret.
I didn’t know this land was a part of Hyrule.
book Didn’t arrive today maybe tommorow
I’ put money on tomorrow. I was expecting it to show up today.
Top 10 reasons everyone in Yeld wears glasses:
10 – Everyone sat too close to the television as children.
9 – Everyone read in dim light as children.
8 – This comic sponsored by Dr. Dave’s Optometry Clinic – Dr. Dave, for all your vision needs.
7 – As a shield in case some human brat tries to stab you in the eye while you’re kidnapping her medusa friend.
6 – There is no number 6.
5 – The prince had the inventor of contact lenses beheaded before he could reveal his invention.
4 – It gives visitors something to think about.
3 – They are all really Kryptonians posing as mild-mannered reporters.
2 – They don’t all wear glasses. The two guys who gave marah the gift of eggplant weren’t wearing glasses. Didn’t you notice or do you need glasses or something?
1 – You know how carrots are supposed to be good for your eyesight? Eggplant has a completely opposite effect.
I’ll go with #1.
ok, i only sat close to the tv, because i needed glasses and didn’t know. plus, as a kid, i WAS the remote. oh how the 70’s sucked! lol!
Remote? There were only four stations in the 70’s and that was including PBS. Anything remotely resembling channel surfing got us yelled at. And if we didn’t read the schedule and agree on what we wanted to watch in advance then we didn’t get to watch anything.
Lots of places also had that one weird indy station that mostly played syndicated reruns and old movies. At least it made a decent alternative to wall-to-wall coverage of political conventions and such on the Big 3.
I gotta say thanks for #2 there. I wondered that myself after the question was posited (I went back a page to double-check, but yeah).
I’m voting #6! Can’t go wrong with THAT logic!
#9 – I did that, my eyes are still pretty good!
The #6 is a lie!
#2 They were Elves! See the pointy ears? Elves never wear glasses, not even sunglasses!
maybe it how they tell the difference between the humans and the aliens? Need to update to contacts
Ha! I could live there if it were real cause I have glasses! 😀 and if they did tell her why they probably have to kill her because she would know to much. Lol
Is she missing a hair snake today?
I usually only draw 2 or 3 of the 4. My assumption is that often a few are behind her, either asleep or minding theri own business.
I think that Since Yeld occasionally gets Earth residents to their world an Optometrist crossed over and he only makes glasses for residents in his preferred style which ist to say Jake’s favorite half rims.
Maybe they’re all hipsters?
definitely this one
Huzzah for obscure Zelda references! 😀
This was a triumph.
I’m making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.
It’s hard to overstate my satisfaction.
the Season 1 book
is real kick a$$.
It’s real good to all of us.
Specially the kickstarters.
and it’s obvious this book was not a mistake.
In my personal opinion it is better then cake.
And I’ll reread it again .
every day and weekend.
Cause my book finally has arrived!
I’m really so happy
I just love the book so very much.
Even though it took a while to get here.
The comics are funny.
And Comments are just so awesome too.
As I read it rocked because I was so happy for you!
Now these extra comics being stored in my mind
And I know i’ll reread them simply all of the time.
And the ghost story was cool
and extra bonus it did room
And I read it because It’s Arrived.
Can’t wait for the sequel.
I think season 2 will be a blast.
Maybe you’ll be slightly optimistic.
I noticed the shoutouts
You got both my names.
Jerus and Mr Jay.
Anyway, this book is great.
It’s so kickass to read.
Look at me still talking
when there’s Reading to do.
I forgot to mention the stickers were cool too .
the only problem that i dread.
A certain theme is in my head.
from the stickers in the book that Arrived.
And it’s Awesome because It Arrived.
I’m telling others that it Has Arrived.
I feel FANTASTIC knowing It’s Arrived.
And I’m building up for when 2 will Arrive.
And I thought i’d comment It’s Arrived.
I noticed when rereading the old strips. The one where Medusa has locked you out and throws chocodiles at you then says “What now” can be interpreted as the internet meme “Come at me Bro” but in my mind it seemed more like she literally did not know how the arguement was supposed to continue. Also there’s an certain comment i want to make without spoiling so ill ask this instead to be as vague as possible. Do all snake bites from Medusas hair become stone or do only certain ones?
I don’t really remember what my intent was there. Probably closer to “Come at me bro”.
As to your second question, it’s all about intent.
Ahh, the secret of bad eyesight XD
This one made me chuckle.
I HAVE BEEN WAITING SO LONG. You finally made a reference to the best video game rebel ever.
TBH, I’m less of a fan of this joke: the “mystery of the glasses” and the Zelda reference drop were both out of nowhere, so the joke was “hey look a Zelda reference!” It could still work if there was some actual secret/mystery the audience wondered about, and bore some other vague similarities to Zelda or the quote in question – *then* drop the quote.
Okay, I’ll stop telling you how to do your job.
