– So here’s the first real Season 3 strip! In case you can’t tell, the snake is shaking his head “no”.
The Season 2 Kickstarter is going great. We’re almost to $8000, which is 2/3 of our goal. Of course, we’ve got a lot of great stretch goals, so we want to raise as much money as possible. The Season 2 book will be even bigger that the first book, complete with two enormous gate fold pages. There’s also all kinds of great rewards you can get in addition to the book, like a Modest Medusa DS skin, a print set, original art or the chance to work with me on a Modest Medusa strip! Check it all out at the Kickstarter page!
And in case you missed it, here’s a new comic I created for the Kickstarter, plus the art for teh Season 2 poster and shirt.
– My friends are making great comics! Please check out Goblin Tale by Skull and Sorrel and Artichoke by Simon Underwood!
They’re not smart because their snakes don’t eat Chocodiles and then poop them around their brain. Having a layer of pooped Chocodiles around your brain makes you smarter.
lol, hahhaa, well maybe its because they never even touched anything smarter then a rock?
Summer is coming. Time to update copyright to 2012 maybe?
Also, I suggest to recolor the sword, at glance looks like it belongs to Jake…
Yeah, I keep meaning to change the date. Maybe on Friday.
And yeat, I still need to finish up a few details on that drawing. The sword, Marah’s hair, the t-shirt logo.
I see a jake with a blu face…. That’s not a good sigh…..
Awesome! I wait with bated breath. And love the little snakes.
So… The snakes talk to her?
So among her sisters, our Medusa’s the smart one? I don’t know if that’s saying much. 😉
How do Medusa’s sisters tell each other apart? Or can they even do that?
They might be able to if they have different names. You have not metioned any names yet…
Opps. I spelled mentioned wrong!
I bet they’re all named Medusa to avoid confusion
They’re not smart because they have not played on a DS. But man, Jake, your confusing me with diplaying two comic strips and a cover. But good job on fundraising the money! 🙂
So Jake Because Kickstarter takes the money out at the end of the month should i do it via paypal like last time?
If you want to, that would be fine with me. On the other hand… we need as much money IN the Kickstarter as possible.
It still says (c) 2011 on the bottom right
Or am I in a time warp?
I’m planning on changing it on Friday
So I should wait till the last ten minutes and then put it through so they’ll take it off the card before i can end up spending it on something else?
If you want. Eitehr way is fine.
I suddenly had a vision of hundreds of little medusae with crowned snakes coming out of their mouths saying, “The Medusa is not your friend.”
That is creepy.
When they get home they’re realize they missed SO MANY video games and will need days, nay…months to catch up. I’ve banked over 165 hrs into Skyrim and I still have not finished the game…I’ve fallen behind on my other games… 🙁
They haven’t even played Portal 2 yet!
OR DISGAEA! What poor sods! SRPGs make a gamer smarter than any FPS could!
Actually, they may have played Disgaea. Jake has anyway.
I welcome the new season.
Show me what kind of chaos the group is in for. I wanna see what becomes of Jake, Medusa, her sisters, the mermaids, and I ain’t taking “Mcguffin” for an answer.
This is the season where everything happens. It’s going to be huge!
Ooh, more me this season. I’m a big fan of me! (Also all that other stuff, but I especially like the fish scientist).
That’s what I forgot to suggest for the kickstarter, a design Charles’ arm contest.
That would have been a good idea.
Hey Charles Your fan club is raising money to pay your bail already
I actually like the theory that the more children you have the weaker the dna gets. I have two younger brothers and they’re both borderline brain dead.
Yeah, I’m the oldest of my siblings and I feel the same way.
I Resent this implication. I’m an older brother and my younger sister is waay more intelligent then me also manipulative and *itchy.
Hey now! 7 of 8 and – oooo, shiny.
the title of this comic reminds me of “A Goofy Movie.” the part at the beginning where the principal is talking about “science slumber parties!”
I think the smart hair braid needs a pair of glasses to fit in with all the people around the place.
Jake I have a question. Why does Medusa have four snakes in one drawing and four in the other?
Opps. Dang it!!! 🙁
I meant to say why does she have THREE snakes in one drawing and FOUR in the other. And why do her sisters only have THREE in all of the drawing?
man, I answer this question a lot. usually part of her hair just isn’t visible from the font. It’s off panel or hanging limp behind her.
In Season 3 I predict that people will keep saying things around like “If only we had a Lazer” and Charles says “My lazer arms in the shop” then at the end of the season it’s revealed his ultimate prosthetic arm with all the accouterments is actually in the shop. Only question is will it be the Maguffin or will it get destroyed with the shop.
This Is another inaccurate prediction by Jerus the Not So Psychic
Hey Jake. For a moment lets assume that Modest Medusa became an animated series. an also in this assumption you, marah , charles, and the real people the characters are based on for some reason cannot voice themselves. Who would you see voicing the characters?
I can’t really say. What do you guys think?
Tara Strong as Marah
D.C. Douglas as Jake
David Tennant as Charles
Kira Vincent Davis as Medusa
Zoe Wanamaker as Momdusa
Tara Strong and David Tennant are great choices for Marah and Charles. I just can’t imagine the voice of Ruri as Medusa, and I have no idea how D.C. Douglas is, even after googling him.
D.C. Douglas Voice http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLL90q3as4M
Kira Vincent Davis was also Osaka in Azumanga Daioh
Oh, well Osaka is okay then!
I think that you would voice yourself, a young, shy girl with a little adittude would play Medusa, Marah would be played by a young, stuborn, friendly,bad tempered teenager who loves video games, Charles would be voiced by a nerd, clean freak, stuborn, homebody,smart guy with almost no imaginenation and sometimes over reacts, and everyone else you would have to figure out yourself. Hee Hee! 🙂
If you do make an anime/cartoon that would be AWSOME!!!! 🙂
Actually, since the very start I’ve pictured Medusa’s voice as Daveigh Chase (Lilo from Lilo and Stitch and Chihiro from Spirited Away).
BTW, I have actually been quietly reading this wonderful comic since it started (I believe it was Catena that gave you a reference) until now. I just wanted to say that I really do enjoy reading these, keep up the good work, etc. And also, I would LOVE to contribute, but alas, I’m also brokitty-broke-broke due to having a son back in November (so we are now at 1 income). To contribute, we would have to give up pizza night, and I do like pizza. But seriously, I’ll try and drum up some cash to support possibly my favorite webcomic (mutually tied with TwoKinds and Catena whenever it comes back). =)
Chase is a very good choice!
Please, please don’t feel like you have to contribute, especially if you have to give up something else you enjoy!
