No, Jenny, you’re in Portland now. You don’t get to make demands on Modest, or anyone else you’ve ever attacked.
Heck! I doubt this demand would work even if they were in Yeld!
If she wants to repent, there’s a big ol’ river not far from where she is. She can rescue would-be suicide victims instead of imposing herself on past victims.
Please don’t! I’ve always thought it arrogant and intrusive of society to “save” people from exercising their freedom of choice to end their own lives. I mean, seriously, this is Dr. Kevorkian state, yet we can’t drown ourselves in the Willamette? A peculiarly liberal brand of hypocrisy (as opposed to the conservative one in which taxpayer waste is blamed on social welfare instead of on bloated — and counter-productive — “defense” and penal institution budgets).
Dead bodies floating in the rivers need to be fished out before they cause irreparable harm to the fragile ecosystem within the river and the surrounding environment let alone the psychological damage that can cause to other human beings.
Nah. The whole area where the bodies end up is a superfund site. There’s hardly any ecosystem left to damage.
Also, no sane person wants to die in the Willamette. Mutations occur six feet from the surface, and a mutated dead body is just another hipster zombie waiting to spread the hipster virus to other victims.
Only thing you have to worry about after that is Jenny turning into a hipster mermaid. Oh wait…
isn’t this at least a little bit like saying “we shouldn’t interfere with schizophrenic peoples right to sell their house for cashew funds?” I’m having trouble thinking of a situation where suicide is not a result of either mental illness (which can be helped or cured via therapy/medication) or an environment that is harmful to the point that the government, at least should, be willing to aid in fixing it.
I really hope that is just some kind of sick joke. suicide is not something to promote, the person who attempts it is usually just trying to end another kind of pain. emotional or physical, but in ending their own pain they often cause more pain to those that loved them. just because someone forgets how many out there really care, or feel lost, or are simply hurting to much and decides they can’t wait for anything else does not mean they should die.
Yeeeeaaahhh nooo, you’re not in position to make demands.
So, I take it that by “Princess of Yeld” she means Gorgon?
She means Modest, yes.
Who’s the princess of Yeld? Is that Modest? They definitely didn’t treat her like a princess.
I thought they finally admitted that Modest was the Princess. Jenny needs to go back and reread the season 3 book.
“Hello, police? There’s a mermaid trying to get in our house.”
“What’s the address? And if this is the same place that claimed a unicorn attacked them a couple of years ago we’re arresting you all for filing false police reports.”
Actually, the bonus comics revealed that the Portland Police did actually encounter the Knight of Chains…
Wait, was that part of the story canon? Either way, there was a confirmed “attack” by that tooth monster, and also the fact that, yes, they do house a gorgon.
That was canon. The detectives showed up later to continue the investigation, although Bunk didn’t believe that it was actually a Unicorn (and I think Charles even refereed to it as a horse with a Chainsaw on it’s head). But the police Commissioner took it seriously at least and tried to close the airport so he couldn’t get away.
Damn, I hate when they surrender! Now you can’t kill her to death.
A princess! Medusa gets to be a magical girl with hair powers! Those are the rules!
We are willing to negotiate, attractive merwoman. Kekek.
(Seriously considering shipping Toon Jake and Jenny. I could see it working out. What’s love without a few bumps in the road? Kekekek.)
Someone called the police in a story! I can’t believe it! No one ever seems to call the police.
They called the police when the Unicorn came, its just that we never got to see them
We did see them actually. As well as the detectives that showed up later to investigate.
It wouldn’t help much since all her crimes were outside their jurisdiction.
Mercy! Parley! Sanctuary!
Possible plot complication! Our mermaiden is apealing to medusa as a member of the Yeld royalty. as sush she is making an automatic case as to her motivation reguarding Jake, in that she was acting on behest of her Lord and Master.
Possibly very clever in that she is claiming that she had no choice to act as she did was her duty, and by switching masters she is fully absolving her self of blame. Yet she still is admitting what she did.
Fuedalistic bonds go both ways, up and down the classes.
Or I am over complicating this?
Or possibly giving Jake an idea?
First panel was very well done indeed!
Excellent foreshortening and framing. Captures the action and emotion very well indeed!
Just a joy to look at! Great job!
Yes, I didn’t really pay it conscious attention til it was specifically mentioned (a sign of a good artist) but there are so many artists that just can’t pull of foreshortening very well.
I mean, the other panels are also very good — your work is consistently wonderful.
But that first panel is really a gem!
