Here’s the last of the guest comics from the Season 1 Kickstarter. These were a lot of fun to do, but also a HUGE amount of work. The original idea was that people who contributed X amount to the Kickstarter would get a walk on role in the comic. I had envisioned this as appearing in one or two panels, or maybe having a full strip devoted to the guest character, but that all changed when I did the first one. Will Benedetti ended up appearing in 3 strips, along with his weird, mute kangaroo. After that I felt like the bar had been raised. Some characters, like Michelle Ho and Pawel Goj only appeared in one or two strips, while others like Fiona Kathleen Marley ended up showing up a whole bunch of times. Justin R accidentally became an important character when I realized that I needed one of the bad guys to talk in the “The Kingdom Strikes Back” arc. And then there was Urano. I had planned on introducing the huge, armored Oathbreaker for awhile, but when it came time to take off his helmet I decided to randomly choose one of the Kickstarter backers to play him. Luckily Mike Urano had a great last name!
Anyway, the problem was that I just hadn’t expected to have 11 guest stars, and working that many people into the story became a little awkward. We;ll be doing this again for the next Kickstarter, of course, but I’ve decided that we’ll limit the number of guest appearances to 5. This will let me still give each person a bit of attention without bogging down the story!
Anyway, the plan is to get the Kickstarter going before the 24th.
Yay! 😀 Can’t wait for the next book!
Not cute, Medusa, not cute.
And, of course Lou is mute. Kangaroos don’t talk to you unless you’re very, very tired.
Or are in Holodrum and Labrynna. ‘.^~*
Medusa has really good taste in music artist logos on her t-shirts. First The Prodigy, and now Daft Punk? Win.
But no DragonForce. Tsk, tsk, tsk…
still waitn for Tenacious D
EFFIN’ HELLZ YEAH, DAFT PUNK SHIRT FOR THE WIN ;3 !!!Besides that, lol, stealing is bad buuuut that ds is a pretty color so I would have steal it too for myself XD
Oh and I will reply to your email sometime tomorrow ^~^
Look at my comment right above yours. High five for Daft Punk!
Also that’s a DSi, and they do make them in that color. I’ve got one, and it is rather… well, pretty I guess. But I put a Skullcandy logo sticker over the outer camera because the eye of the skull was a perfect fit. XD
Oh snap! Haha I somehow missed your comment when I was writing mine XD But dude, that is awesome to hear that you’re a fan too ;3 Totally win!
Haha yeaaah, I forgot the “i” in the dsi XD I think it’s because I wrote ” ds is a ” …so I forgot the other “i”. I is jealous that you have that color and awesome on the placing of the sticker, kekeke 😀
It’s actually a 3DS, but I drew the little camera on because for some reason when I leave it off people think it’s a sandwich.
Lol, totally not confusing stuff at all XD So many kinds of DSs But I would have done and add the camera part too since the ds is pretty plain and be mistaken for a sandwich, mmm sandwich…
But the 3DS… it has two cameras spaced closer to the center… and is less big seeming. It really looks more like a DSi XL (my brother has one).
I can’t wait for the next kickstarter or book! I hope I have enough surplus income to buy a walk on in season 3!
Great work, Jake!
Why not Zoid… .I mean Medusa
Ah, Zoidberg. I was about to google “woop woop woop” to see where I should have remembered it from.
Panel 3: cutest Medusa face EVER.
ZOIDDUSA COME BACK HERE! That’s MINE! 😀
So, am I the only one that ‘heard’ the Metal Gear Solid ‘alert’ sound when the exclaimation point appeared? 🙂
No, no, I’m a big nerd too.
ah…. I hear it now….
Wears glasses. Must be from Yeld.
I love Mudusa’s angry snake.
His “weird, mute kangaroo” huh? As opposed to all those normal kangaroos, which talk.
Well, of course. Surely you didn’t believe all those nature documentaries denying the lordship of Kangaroos in Western Queensland?
Uhmmm sorry but I was wondering what is the URL for the strip where they meet the vampire guy…. that… sorry for the poor description… i’m looking for when Marah and Medusa were saved from the evil ghost thingy…
