Here’s this month’s Patreon sticker. This is Medusa dressed as Spinnerette from the fantastic webcomic with the same name. I’ve been a fan for a few years, and I really recommend it. You can read it here: http://www.spinnyverse.com/. If you’re enjoying Modest Medusa and would like to help me make a living doing the comic please check out my Patreon page. Even $1 a month helps!
– If you read the comics you may have saw that Jeremy (who also posts under the name Jerus and has been a regular poster and Modest Medusa supporter since forever) recently lost his mother and is in some pretty dire financial situation. he needs some help while he looks for a job. He’ set up a GoFundMe page and could certainly use some help. If you can spare a few bucks and would like to help out a fellow Modest Medusa reader you can check out it out here. I’ve chipped in a bit already, and I hope maybe some of you will be able to as well. Gofundme operates a little like Kickstarter, but even if he doesn’t reach his funding goal Jeremy will still be able to keep whatever money is donated.
Gone Forever? What sort of alias is that?
This is, sometimes, how you have to explain death to a child. Take a look at this classic Sesame Street: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOvmSxvpGnA
No corpse horns because it’s just a dream? Or am I missing something?
Oh, it’s a dream. Modest’s mind is trying to resolve that her friend is not coming back, that dead does not come back. Notice that she is not wearing her armour in these images.
I like the Spinnerette Medusa. Cute.
Dream is what I’m banking on. Between the giant bee and the easy dimensional travel, this screams as a grieving dream. Which makes since, as Modest has lost her best friend. Though part of me was hoping for a resurrection spell or something.
Hand comes out of the grave in 5… 4… 3…
Well this is just bursting with joy.
This page nearly had me choke on my sandwich.
It better burst outta it soon. Before I weep like a babyT-T
(Not actual request to the author.)
It looks like a dream sequence. Big scary bumble bee, finding Marah’s glasses, only two people, no drudge angel, but some sort of foreshadowing for the future plot.
Wait, once she died she lost her horns and fangs? Does that mean the same would happen to the Chainsaw Unicorn once he dies?
“it’s a trap” guy that looks like her XP
and i for got his name is Clementine lol
That was blunt.
Not the most sensitive thing to have on a tombstone.
Had my hopes up there for a second. Thanks Jake!
hey at least now modest can get charles arm back now
Medusa as Spinerette! So much yes! I love that webcomic! <3
And Bottom Lefty snake! ^3^
Darn it! I was hoping they were going to resurrect her. -_-
Okay, I don’t know if that last panel was supposed to be hilarious, but it was.
Pfft. Good matter-of-fact punchline.
The last two comics are being an emotional roller coaster. I’m seriously homing the ride continues.
Thank you for sharing the link and donating Jake. It helps alot.
Also I think this is a dream sequence of Modest trying to process and understand death. Possibly for us fans that keep thinking Marah will come back into the strip. You underestimate life and time when a loved one dies. You think they’ll always be there. You talk about finding pottery classes or going to harry potter world. And of course there’s the age old adage “There’s always next year” until there isn’t. You wish you could have spent more time with them. The day i found my mom there was a kid twelve or thirteen. He tried to console me with “Yeah I know how it feels my grandpa called me up and i said i was too busy to talk and i was really just playing video games and he died a week later.” Unlike some grieving people I didn’t snap at him and say “It’s not the same.” I just politely accepted his company and assumed that he was just hanging around to get a glimpse of my mother being carried out like “Stand by me”. But now I understand what he meant. I wanted to do so many things with mom. Take her out to places watch movies together and talk. But now those things are gone forever.
…They do realize that they forgot to put in the body, right?
I think Jake is trying to drop a hint or something.
Somehow, I find that the “GONE FOREVER” gravestone makes this the saddest scene in the series so far. Sadder than when Marah actually died. It just makes the death seem like less of a fact and more of…she’s actually dead.
They’re only leaving her there for three weeks. That’s where bears come from.
… but that Marah has no horns, nor a jacket rip from Mr. Codpiece’s sword.
So much for the whole “Where there is life…” bit.
And I love the Spinneydusa … or is it Medunney?
I was desperate to ask whether you were going to address Modest’s sense of loss, but I didn’t want to be a backseat comicker. Unless I did… then I apologize for being a backseat comicker.
I think you did!
Dressed as Spinnerette? Then who’s this version of Doctor Universe,I wonder? =D
You know, after binge-reading Order Of The Stick again, I should have expected this. But I didn’t. And now I’m sad
Maybe she turned back into her human form when she died?
Ah, a passive-aggressive blame dream: “She’s dead, and it’s all your fault.”
I guess this is closure for those who fervently believed she’d come back…
Or is it? Who knows; impossibilities abound in Yeld! ;D
Where are her horns? Will she turn into vampire?
Spinnerette is cool, yes, but the guy who draws it is a bit of a jerk. Middle of the comic chapters…..paid only. (At least twice, then the prequel chapter, but eh. Still, things that are referenced later on, that you have little/no idea about how it’s supposed to work unless you have spending money for print copies of webcomics. That’s a bit….well…wrong. ESPECIALLY when you put a few teaser pages up….then screw everyone who can’t/won’t pay for it. Paid comic, or free. Make up your mind. This halfway crap is just rude.)
That said, the main reason I’ve let myself fall behind is so I can read a bunch of pages at once. Usually easier to keep straight what’s happening.
This is sad, but Spinny Medusa is cute.
Waaaaaiiits… They don’t buries their dead in Yeld! Rei is pretties sure this was alreadies a thing by nows, because a guest strip mentioneds tunnel mummies. (One ofs the reasons they don’t buries their dead in Yeld)
They mostly don’t.
