– Oh Jesus. Jaspar has two hands! I swear, EVERY TIME I draw him I forget that he has a hook and I have to go back and redraw his left hand. This time I actually made it all the way through drawing, coloring and lettering the page before I noticed. And worse, he’s USING his hand all through the page! UGH! So I’ve decided that I’m going to leave it as is for now. I may fix it in the future. Possibly he’s just drunk enough that he’s imagining that he has two hands again.
– Speaking of pirates… here’s this months Modest Medusa shirt, featuring the whole Pirates of Yeld crew! The shirt will be available until early July. You can get in multiple colors in women and men’s styles up to size 5xl. Just $20! Order here.
– Some bad news. As part of my recent computer problems I ended up losing a lot of files. Thankfully I keep all my work backed up, but I only realized today that I’ve lost the document where I keep all your questions for “Ask Medusa”. And that was like 200 unanswered questions! So if you have any new questions (or previous ones that haven’t been answered), please ask!
To be honest, the hook looked a bit bogus and I assumed he had a handle to it in his hand up inside his sleeve! Either way is cool, but it would be a cute surprise reveal!
I think this should become the canon answer.
And maybe he got so drunk that he forgot to keep his fake hook out.
Maybe if he get drunk enough he’ll wear his eyepatch on the wrong eye!
But we saw his hand get cut off by the chainsaw unicorn.
That’s a wooden prostatic with a glass in it
Captain: An’ can I catch me own? There’s a big’un here who’s not sitting quiet in his tank like he should…
You could make it so that he can pop-out the hook and stick on a magic replacement hand maybe? Like the hook is only used sometimes?
Yeah, I assume he must only use the hook sometimes (It’s too large to be practical). We’ve never really seen him enough before this to know what he does with his left arm when he’s not fighting. A prosthetic makes sense.
If it’s just a practical prosthetic, you could just go in and only change the color of that hand.
He could have a prosthetic hand with a built-in glass. It looks like the glass is in the same position in each frame of the comic. I prosthetic like that could be fairly practical when going drinking (compared to a hook, at least), and avoids the need for a magic prosthetic with moving fingers.
His hand grew back! Good for him. 😉
“And the crab stuffed crab.” 😛
…and a crab’s ship.
Nah, just make him cup the glass with the hook like he expects some one to try to take it from him and you should be golden!
“And some Rid-X!”
Get it!? 😀
“Just give me every Crab dish you have.”
Trying not to read this with Mr Crabs voice…
Salty, salty crab. Well, salty weasel, but…
What’s a math rat? .__.
Mast rat probably. Hard to tell. 🙂 But if i ever hire accountant, i will surely use such nickname for him.
I love that the only thing you lost is the one thing that we can help you recover!
I’d love to ask Jaspar when he started faking that he had a hook and why : )
It’s probably a nonsapient and different species or genus et cetera of crab so he probably won’t care, also Captian Crust is naked.
Would love to order the shirt, but they only ship to the US and Canada… =(
Send Tom a message through etsy (use the “ask a question” button on the shirt page) and he’ll arrange something with you. He’s done it before.
I just want to say I did not notice the lack of a hook until a comment remarked on it a week and a half later. Which is weird because his hook is actually pretty big and noticeable.
Maybe later he should replace the hook with a mechanical hand, so if you forget you can just color it in. Then the hook can be sent to Charles to assist him in fish sciencery.
I’ve Noticed That the design of the mermaid changed. She used to look like the one working here. Did she use magic to look more human on earth?
The way I draw things just changes as time goes on.
