-3 updates this week! I wish I could say that means I’m back on schedule, but with Fanime next week it looks like I’ll be missing one or two updates. I’ll try my best to make up for it. Now that Wither Away is finally over I hope I can keep a more normal schedule!
– Speaking of Fanime, I’ll be in the Artist Alley whit Ben Hsu (of Dubious Company) all weekend. Come say hi and get a sketch! Our table is listed under the name TagalongDT.
The back story was great! I like the transition back to current time. Looks like the mini-dusas were getting a history lesson :). Although I think Jake will have a sore back when he wakes up, looks like the Certa mattress sheep are at it again. 🙂
Oops forgot where we were. http://www.modestmedusa.com/?p=688 is where this comic picks up from. Didn’t remember the sheep.
The implications are starting to pile up. It seems like the gorgons have to have an attachment like with a familiar and a witch. Which makes me wonder if Modest’s familiar is Jake or Marah?
I love this comic so much!
The last time the knight was away from the hydra (no longer a gorgon, just saying) he cut off some guy’s arm. Maybe her influence isn’t such a bad thing.
I’m too lazy to look it up, but wasn’t CU’s first appearance under her control, since she was trying to bring Modest home?
how long does it take for her influence to fade when they’re apart? clearly he was under her influence when he was sent to collect Modest and it seems rather unlikely that she was outside of Yeld as well. after all, he can pretend to just be a horse, how are people going to overlook the giant hydra?
Did this story arc make anyone get that song ‘The Meaning of His Tears’ from ‘OFF’ stuck in their head? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dj8KU-X5tvA)
Now come along little Medusas. We can’t have you here if we want to kill your mom.
Question for you Jake, this most likely has to do with needing to show more of the story in the strips, why go between the narrow style strips like this one to full pages? Is it kind of the style you develop or simplicity in design. Hope my question makes sense.
Sometimes I just need more room to tell the story. The 4 panel strips, or narrow single panels strips like this one, have some limitations.
Considering it was momdusa was the one who snatched Jake, bringing him to Yeld… She was still close. My only question is how was he still a CU and not human. Maybe it was the prince’s curse?
That was a bloody epic arch! 😀
Hey Jake hope you don’t mind that I couldn’t resist drawing some Modest crossover fan art! http://fav.me/d65l02h
I dig it!
Say, this Ben Hsu. Is he the same guy who ran a comic in that GameSpot magazine awhile back?
I suppose I COULD follow the link and see for myself… I’m not sure I’d recognize the art style, though. It’s been over a decade since I’ve had that magazine.
Not the same guy, as far as I know.
* whew* glad this section’s over, man, what a story! Jake should be glad he slept through it.
they need to get him a tinfoil-hat to block out momdusa´s evil mind-controlling vibes 😉
So wait—I’m confused. If he’s himself when he’s away from the gorgon, shouldn’t he have been himself when we first saw him or has he turned into a violent psychopath who likes to cut off human limbs?
The Gorgon’s control over him lessens as he’s away from her, but it takes awhile. If she sends him on a mission, she’s going to be focusing her control on him.
OH MY GOODNESS… is Jake okay?! 🙁
I hope he was saved by a sheep cushion!!!
(why do the medusas look like they have no eyes, and instead dark black pits?!)
…I’m starting to really dislike the gorgon because she’s becoming a seductive/hypnotizing b**ch!
Disregard my last comment…I feel so bad for the chainsaw unicorn that I’m taking it out on the Gorgon…Sorry. 🙁
