– The Prince returns! Time to finally answer some questions!
– If you haven’t yet, please check out the new Modest Medusa Kickstarter. Thanks to a bunch of very generous readers the project is already over 80% funded. I’m really hoping we can reach our goal soon. Its been 4 years since the last Modest Medusa book. my plan was originally to do a book every year, but life got in the way and everything fell off track. With your help I’ll be able to get back on that track! So please check out the Kickstarter. You can get the new book or the whole Modest Medusa library, plus new stickers, art prints, a chance to guest star in Modest Medusa and more! I really, really appreciate your support. Here’s the link!

What in the everloving Chocodiles?
my reaction exactly!
I made a little more noise than that, but… that was my basic reaction, too.
OH MY GOD… And I didn’t think this simple storyline couldn’t get super epic & awesome. Then it does in one simple panel.
Definitely snakey, and not in a good way….
… I tried to think about a fitting reaction but the only thing I can think about is:
… oh shit.
Is that… snake puberty?
I think this says it all:
Yes, yes yes, yes yes yes yes yes yes!
Now we meet the crown snake.
All is proceeding as I have foreseen…
Why does her magic have to be tied to her father?
Aww, this entire mind exploration thing went from funny and interesting to sad and terrifying in an instant. And we don’t know what this actually means yet (manifestation of the unpleasant parts of Modest’s memories? actual parasite implented by the prince to control Modest?), but you gotta feel bad for RT having to deal with it practically alone all this time.
dun DANNN DUUUUUNNN!
Dun dun DUUUUN!
Damnit, I wanted to do that ><!
Remember, this whole story is being told, by Modest, in front of her whole class.
Wonder how well these kids (and the teacher) will take her explanation of her evil, deadbeat vampire father, who is also inside her head.
All of us have our parents in our heads. They’ll completely relate. (OK, maybe not the vampire part. Let’s make him an alcoholic instead. 🙂
Modest: YOU!!! Xbox, get big, and grab him! Where’s the front door?!
Right Top: There isn’t one.
Modest: Alright… DEFENESTRATION TIME!!
Right Top: I don’t think the windows open…
Left Bottom: Defenestration?!
Right Bottom: That’s the longest word I know!
Left Top: Almost as good as “Chocodile”!
LT, LB & RB: ♫Defenestration time, come on!♫♪♫
Modest: (sidelong, to Right Top) And if we can’t get him through it, there’s a toilet, right?
I’m not sure what kinds of complex you get if you shove your daddy issues into whatever part of your psyche your mental apartment space’s toilet represents.
Same though. I can’t think of anything more or better to say. Just a mouth-dropping, stomach-sinking, heart-stopping, word-prohibiting oh.
Sooooo anyone gonna point out that it looks like he stole one of Loki’s helmets?
dude do you know how long he’s had that helmet in this comic?
It totally is inspired by Loki’s old school Marvel look though. I’ve always been a fan of that.
Well dam. This isn’t good.
I guess I should’t be surprised that Modest’s past has come back to haunt her here. She appears in a Marah-like form, which may as well have been foreshadowing this encounter.
Well now… I admit I didn’t see that coming.
And so… she wasn’t allowed to learn magic because that’d unlock that door?
No wonder that snake’s always having issues – he’s got split personality disorder (caused by a magic jerk of a father)
But all I can think of is that “inside” is one word.
Modest: That’s when I discovered that I’m secretly evil and going to turn you all into monsters. The End.
: Okay, who wants to go next? Gina?
Medusa: How are you in my head?!?!?!?
Well, I was right and RT was hiding something.
Good golly miss Molly, what RT was hiding, though!
An aspect of her father lies within her, a magical part….wow…who’d a thunk it…….hmmm guess Jake did….LOL
…is the copyright supposed to look like the ink is running?
Foreshadowing of some sort that the whole mental world is about to come crashing apart<
Oh, that would have been neat. What happened was that I painted over it, and then erased some of it. But obviously not all of it.
No no no, what you say is, “Wait and find out ;)” and then pretend you had this ALL planned out and that you are a god at planning, foreshadowing, etc. even if in reality 99% of the time you are running around screaming
I don’t think i’m going to be able to fool anyone.
You can’t fool us.
This is the fifth snake with the crown, right?
Ok what fifth snake?
[Mark Hamill Joker voice] Hmmmmmm… Looks like Daddy wants to have a little chat. [/Mark Hamill Joker voice]
I just can’t take the Prince’s hornet-antennae-thingies seriously.
RT: I had not choice. He arrived right before you did. I’m sorry.
Modest: Yeah. Well I’m sorry too.
Or if ESB references don’t float your boat, we could go Goblet of Fire…
Prince: Kill the spare!
Modest: Xbox noooo! ; ;
You can take the blue or red pill….lol …love that you put in the matrix chairs
Thanks. I’ve had this scene in mind since the last time I watched the Matrix, which was about 4 years ago.
How can this guy see….I mean look at his helmet…..man he should hand the designer the guy is an idiot ….
Its a visor.
oh no… Sneaky is a trauma-holding persecutor… and Modest is plural, which means her snakes are literally separate people…
Also, hello from the future! I’ve been binging <3
