– I posted a brand new 4 page Legend of Korra fan comic this weekend. You can read it here.
– From now until the end of the year several items from my online store are $5 off, including the Modest Medusa hardcover books, plush Medusa pillows, Chainsaw Unicorn plush hats and scarves and more! You can check it out here.
I’m also offering a special holiday deal over at the Combine store. Get the first 4 issues of my sci-fi anthology Combine (featuring my comic Ghost Kiss) for just $30. Thats a $10 savings on over 250 pages of comics!
And, yet, he doesn’t have the reputation of being the neighbourhood creepy guy.
Coming or going?
Waiting for a one-eyed Mermaid to try to sneak back there…
He knows she will, her plans always fail, eh?
Staking out an old toilet.
Angry Jake is Angry? Or is he just brooding on a solution?
wha- what is he doing? I dont like this… too ominous…
I’ve been wondering what Jake was up to. I thought for certain he was going to dive in to rescue Modest.
He can’t, because he can’t use magic.
Mind you, Jake lives in a world full of superheroes, giant robots, and magic. Such a world would surely have scholars dedicated to studying miracle exemptions to the laws of physics. If I were Jake I’d seek out a reputable expert in magic, specifically in the school of conjuration.
I don’t think Jake’s world has any native magic. Or at least no more than our own world. But as you said, lots of other weird stuff.
Say that to Link, Earthbound’s Paula and Princess Celestia 😉
Any magic Jake’s world has is probably ceremonial magic, that requires a specially prepared ritual space, the proper celestial alignments, and an hour of sustained chanting just to scry something. And that’s if you want a spell cast reliably and cleanly.
Opening a portal to a specific fantasy realm sounds like the sort of thing a wizard would spend years researching. Partly to make sure no other obscure text already holds the answer, and partly to derive the metaphysical formula from scratch if they didn’t find anything.
None of what you said has been hinted at or established in canon, though I’d love to see that explored in Jake’s fictional Portland.
That makes zero sense. There’s no reason why there wouldn’t be people studying magic in a world full of weird magic.
Harry Dresdan, professional wizard – he’s in the phone book.
But Harry is in Chicago, not Seattle. The TV series was filmed in Toronto, once again imitating that city (see Due South).
Considering he’s got a bag tied to his leg, he probably is. Only reason he’d do it is to keep from losing it in the lake
Jake doesn’t look happy… I wonder what’s in the travel bag?
Candy-cane Modest is adorable, as always!
I think that’s his anchor in case whatever comes out of the toilet grabs him, like the last time he went to Yeld.
That is not the look of a happy pappy.
Jake is PISSED!
Wonder what he has tied to his ankle. Why tie it to his ankle? Why not wear a backpack instead?
Somebody took the car when Dad said “No”.
I bet they don’t have aluminum bats in Yeld. Time for some payback!
She is SO grounded when she gets back.
Question is, is the bat for Modest or for someone else?
imagine seeing this strip out of context
I went back and read it again just for your comment… Hilarious. :3
But the magic is in the toilet itself… Which suggests that it *should* work…
…so is this fool going to buy a fucking gun or what? Seriously, where do these people live? Japan?
We don’t need guns to deal with this kind of stuff in Japan, thats what we have magical girls for!
That’s how I acted when I first had to learn to use a restroom.
Yoooouuuu… remember how you acted that long ago?
Serious mode initialized…
Standby for Wack-A-Mole.
