She very tactfully dodged the whole, “Our mom ate our other siblings,” bit.
And the whole “I might have too” bit.
That’s not necessarily the case. Sounded to me when the Prince explained the life cycle of the hydra, that they naturally pass away after reproducing. I suspect that unlike Gorgon, who has sustained her long life by eating her own offspring, Naga has lived this long because she never had any offspring of her own.
Actually, if I recall correctly, hydra don’t normally eat their young. The prince compelled Gorgon to (Medusa’s mom, right Jake?) in order to extend her life…for whatever assuredly nefarious reason, that I hope will eventually be revealed.
Hmm How old is auntie dear, indeed! And is she a reformed or merely a retired pedophage?
She said she didn’t have any of her own kids, so I don’t thing that being a pedophage is strictly necessary.
Did she? Juvenile medusae don’t strike me as being particularly adept at surviving on their own. (Modest herself managed to get herself eaten by a lake monster.) Plus, two survivors out of a clutch sounds about right. Otherwise, the place would be crawling with them.
it would make sense in a ‘survival of the fittest’-kind of way. basically, the ones smart+fast enough to evade mommy´s jaws get to grow up.
as for medusa´s siblings, they didn´t even *try* to flee even though they weren´t locked in. thats the survival instinct of a lemming right there….
My thought exactly.. surely she doesn’t mean their normal lifespan is low, more like in typical reptile fashion, you just keep growing forever.. hit adulthood at a smallish size, get big IF you can, otherwise get eaten
Panel 2 – Litte sister
Is it just me, or is Naga chuckling in that last panel?
It’s nice to see that Modest has a kind Aunt. Especially since it shows that not all Medusa’s become evil as they grow up. I guess Modest’s mother was influenced by the Prince that much?
She apparently was.
Little Sister don’t you do what your Big Sister done.
I kind of imagine Auntie Naga is speaking that last panel’s dialog in a very calm, patient, but befuddled voice. Like “oh my goodness child if you think 20 is old”
Aw, I love Auntie Naga already.
Pfffft loved the joke on the last line xD
