Ladies and gents, Mike Urano!
Book update: Good news and bad news. The good news is that the books are starting to go out the door. The first ones went in the post last Friday and I sent another small stack off yesterday. So some of you might actually have yours now! The bad news is that the whole process is taking MUCH, MUCH longer then I thought it would. I was hoping to have all 300 kickstarter books in the mail on Monday, but I’m finding that signing and doing a sketch in a book takes about 10 minutes, and doing 300 of them… well, do the math. So the bad news is that the books are not going out as fast as I’d like. The good news is that they are going out, and I have friends who are helping me out with the packaging and addressing parts to make the whole process faster. My new goal is to just keep pushing these things out as fast as I can and do my best to have everything out the door well before the end of the month. So if you like in the US look for your books this week and next week. If you live overseas, it’ll probably take a bit longer.
Also, if you’re planning on being in portland this weekend don’t miss the Modest Medusa signing at Cosmic Monkey!
I just want to say this series is awesome and that I’ve bookmarked it for regular reading. I could drive down there for Saturday’s signing, but, alas, I’m already booked solid that day. Best wishes!
Heh, i didn’t see the last part coming. yet again i didn’t see the last few pages coming.
nice, but how long does he stay alive jake and we going to need a bigger boat for his armor and him
Who is “Mike Urano”?
Why does he have a wicked suit of armor and why does his axe kill ghosts?
And what does this mean for your weekend?
More, after the break.
Been wanting to comment for awhile now.
Modest medusas one awesoem coming i read it everytime a new one arrives. :3
Your style is cute and the story is just great.
Howveer i’m unable to visit any of those meetings (europe)
but who knows i can get my parents crazy enuff to buy me the book 8D
ps: sorry for the many typos :C
Opening panel – a false it-was-only-a-dream thing. Both tricky and clever.
Though I’m not sure what the snake is doing in that first panel. Big fan of the snakes, always like seeing them – but is Medusa lying on the floor there or was that just one very long snake… or another spy (the right colour this time).
And for an anime sounding name like Urano, yeah, that’s got to be the right way to write him into the strip.
It looks like that one snake was watching her sleep.
Betcha that guy plays a lot of World of Warcraft.
It’s me, that’s who!
Thanks Jake! At least it’s spelled right in the comic. Trust me, spell check is never kind, you could have done far worse.
I’ll fix it up this afternoon.
I kinda figured it was someone real getting an appearance in the comic, kudos to you sir!
Nice that Medusa could keep one of her snakes watching in panel one.
I was about to rage over all this being a dream in a dream in a dream in an inception in a dream in a toilet etc. until I read the second panel
It is the sheen off his glasses that give him the white eyes look while he has his helmet on.
When do teh people in canada get der book?
Also anyone else crying in a corner for that whole new internet pirating law? MM could get shut down for one reference!
I’m not sure how long it will take for books to reach Canada, but I bet it won’t be too long.
Yeah, those dog sleds take some extra time…
Actually, the winter up here has been remarkably mild. We haven’t had to retire the mule train for the year.
Is mine in the mail?
I have no idea. Maybe?
Fat, sweaty japanese guy in bitchin’ armor TO THE RESCUE!
(He looks japanese)
Don’t worry too much about the shipping schedule. It usually takes me 3 or 4 months to get a custom book from Meredith Gran (Octopus Pie), so one month would be quite the improvement!
Sheesh that two times shes woken up in a bed from nearly being killed. Is this becoming a running gag?
alas, i cannot come to the signing, as i am almost 3 years too late. 🙁
Money buys a deus ex machina. Yay.
