– I messed up the background in the last panel. I drew it without looking at the previous strip, so it doesn’t match that strip or panel 3 of this one. I don’t think I’m going to fix it.
– NEWS! So I’m working with Shouldbee.com to make some Modest Medusa toys. We’re in the super early stages (like, we haven’t done anything at all yet) so don’t expect anything soon. This is pretty damn exciting though! The Shouldbee guys want some feedback and info from you, and have set up this survey. Please check it out and let them know what you think. The more info you give them the sooner we can see a little toy Chainsaw Unicorn and a Charles with a detachable arm! The survey has a field where you can leave comments, so please let them know exactly what you’d like to see. Of course, you can and should comment here as well. I’ll be posting more news as it comes. My hope is that we can have some toys on hand for the upcoming convention season. I have no idea if that’s likely or not though. I guess we’ll see! Did I say I was excited? I’m pretty damn excited.
You’re good with capes.
Really good with drawing capes!
Thanks. I used to do a lot of freelance illustration for fantasy role playing games, so I got a lot of practice.
That’s okay, it also looks like you messed up the location of her foot, it keeps going between being behind and on top of the badger.
She moves around. Who wants to stay still forever?
you can just say she stepped up on the guard’s back to brace for catching the spear, and now we’re looking at the room from a different angle to compensate for it. Artistic license, yo! :O
I would’ve just assumed that was the case if you hadn’t said anything about it haha
Oh yeah. That was totally cool!
If the foot’s on top, that makes more sense and makes the previous strip less awkward… >_<
Only way this woulda looked cooler was if it had a little blood on it from breaking some guy’s nose on the way past… Great strip. 🙂
good lord, she is jedi!!!!
No, she’s just an Asgaurd….. I only assume that every asguard can summon their weapons not just Thor ;D
The spear was flying so fast it brought the wall along with it!
Of course, if someone had their foot in my back and was holding a spear then I’d say that anything they did was cool just to keep from making them mad.
Sort of makes you wonder how the spear got yoinked from her in the first place.
crash, land, lightning, Ghostriders nike just apears, gods of old….. in others words…….EPIC!!!
I thought she was gonna spank him to humiliation. I should have considered this too =o
Mara and the faerie henchman just turned 90 degrees counterclockwise in between panels, therefore, no mistake, AND explains the moving of the feets!
Do I get a No Prize (and does anyone remember/recognize that expression)?
I’ll also get to see if my gravatar is still broken on this site. =D
Nice job as per usual, Jake.
Your No Prize is in the mail!
Love the four-part panel!
Adds that cartoony feel to an otherwise badass moment.
That was pretty cool, especially the sound effects.
you missed that guy!
now make it do another trick…
Wanted to tell you I found you with an itty bitty ad at the bottom of Girl Genius online. I don’t know what you pay for your ad, but it caught my eye and here I am. I’ve read from the start and now my daughter (she’s 11) is all up in it too. We’d buy a plushy Modest and said so in the survey.
Looking for you to come to travel east.
He’s right, that was pretty cool. I was so confused at what joke I was supposed to be getting at the end of yesterday’s comic, and now here it is, and it is cool.
marah kicks but in this scene
You know, part of me wants to see an entire comic of the spear flying & smashing through stuff just get back to Marah. Provide a link to some video on YouTube that has the opening theme to the Naked Gun movies and you’re set.
Dude she just totally broke the fourth wall. Lol jk.
I’m waiting to see her use it in a fight cus if she can use it right then she’ll have a combat radius of about 14 feet and a ranged attack with return capabilities. In other words she has the full arsenal of kickass.
Actually, by counting, that’s the 5th wall XD
But we can only see four walls being broken… the third minipanel only shows debris the spear could be carrying along from having broken the third wall with such utterly brutal velocity…
Not necessarily, since she’s a step closer to that wall, you can just say she switched her position.
With that spear, and her one-arm-armor, I have been wondering:
get her and another guy with the other armor-arm on different sides of the castle, and they could wreck that place with a nice game of spear-tennis 🙂
I’m excited to see Modest Medusa toys – when I read about it, I gasped. My mom mostly ignores my giggles when I’m reading webcomics, but gasps are something she rarely hears, so she had to ask if something was wrong. Nope – just some wonderful news.
P.S. – I’d like to see plushies and vinyl figures especially. XD
And this my friend is why you don’t mess with Mara.
Kinda like Thor’s hammer ya know
You make it awfully difficult to hate the bad guys.
Thor’s Awesome descendant!
