– I’ve been told I don’t do a very good job explaining why the Modest Medusa books are worthwhile even if you’ve already read the comic online. Okay, so here’s the sales pitch (which you can ignore. Just scroll down to the squid comic). The Season 1 and Season 2 books both contain about 40 pages of extra comic. That’s almost half a season each. Some of these pages are just gag stuff, but a lot of it is plot important content that really fleshes out the story. In the Season 1 book we get to see the Ghost for the very first time and learn how he met Jake and Marah. We also find out what happened to Jake in Season 2 and how the Chainsaw Unicorn made his way back to Yeld after getting hit by that car. We meet Detectives Lester and Bunk for the first time (in this comic anyway) and see why the Mermaids were working for Medusa’s Mom (who we also see for the first time). There’s also a comic about Medusa’s hair and some other bonus content. The Season 2 book has even more stuff, including a big 10 page comic featuring Marah, the Pirates and Jenny the Mermaid that shows how Marah found that spear, an explanation for all the Batman stuff, Medusa and Urano’s battle with the Chocodile, the return of Will Benedetti’s Kangaroo, more about Jake and Momdusa, more about Medusa’s hair and a return to the game store to buy more Pokemon. Between the two books there’s almost 100 pages of new comics, plus interviews, guest art, a craft article and two awesome giant fold out pages (in the second book). Also, each book has a ton of commentary. Which is cool if you like that kind of thing. Anyway, here’s the store link. Okay, that’s it. I’ll shut up now.
– So it turns out squid can fly? Pretty neat. Also, some squid are like 30 feet long. That’s old news though. Did you know that if you don’t cook them right they can shoot barbed sperm into your tongue when you try to eat them? It’s pretty rare, but it does happen. You can google all this, but I made a comic anyway just to keep you informed.
– Glucifer did a great illustration of the Gorgon and… umm… that guy who becomes the Knight of Chains. I never came up with a name for him. Anyway, it’s great. Thanks!
The Chainsaw Unicorn is cool and all, but I secretly hoped it was the Pirate Weasel Captain, whatever his name was. Also how did he get his chainsaw? Was it magically embedded in his head at this time? Who knows? Well, aside from them of course.
His name was actually “The Captain”.
Oddly enough, I’m going to sleep better knowing that. Also, Thanks again for the linking of art.
Look me over, I’m the Cap’m.
You might think it’s a joke, but I don’t see you laughin’.
– The Cap’m by They Might Be Giants
The weird part is, in the first panel he could go either way. Chainsaw Unicorn, The Captain 50/50 really.
honestly, I’m dissapointed. I was hoping for a dragong or some other reptilian creature! Well, horses are cool… I guess….. *sniff*
Horses aren’t cool, CHAINSAW UNICORNS are cool, natch~
Bonus strip! – But why did you have to google the information when you have a fish scientist who could have told you all of that – or did you google it because your resident fish scientist told it to you and you didn’t believe it?
MODEST MEDUSA HAS NOW BECOME…………. MY LITTLE MODEST!
Ok, I’ll be the first to say it;
But…..How did he get the chainsaw on his head?
It grew from his head when he needed it.
I knew it! Of cource by that I mean I had no idea… Dang your crafty. 🙂
You know with how he was facing the ground he should still have his back on the ground. I guess transformations account for that kind of thing.
Yes, actually, that is beautiful. And it gives us a hint that Momdusa’s attitude toward Jake might be a little more complicated than we thought. And it makes us wonder what hideous, twisted creature Jake might turn into if he spends too long in Yeld – a cranky artist with a beard, perhaps (shudders)…
D: UNICORN CHAINSAW?! My womanly heart!
Does the free shipping deal apply if I order both books?
It might? I’m not sure. Type in the code and find out.
KNowing what I know about Yeld, jake is already an adult…… so what monster would he turn into?
Insurance sales man.
OH SNAP. We had our money on the Vampire Prince. This is almost worse.
I so called it! I kinda guessed since he had the same hair color as the Chainsaw Unicorn… But man, this is a sad arc :c
Also, how goes the process of shipping the pre-ordered kickback books? 😮
It’s slow. I put the first batch of 25 in the mail last weekend, and I’ll be doing another 25 this weekend. I plan to step it up early next month when I have some extra free time, and I’m hoping that I can get everything out by the end of March. We’re talking about around 500 unique orders, each with a sketch and a different selection of stuff. So it would take awhile even if I wasn’t already busy with 1000 other things. I’m also still waiting to get the shirts and DS Skins back, so those will probably ship close to last. So… slowly but surely.
Well its good to hear that things are progressing! even at a slow rate 🙂 Just take your time, Jake. We all can wait ^^
hm…my guess is she really wanted to turn him into something beautiful/peaceful/harmless, but the magic of yeld corrupted it and he ended up with the chainsaw…..makes me wonder what he would have become if she hadn´t meddled with it.
WHAT A TWIST
M. Night would be proud.
You know, as a name for the once to be future Chainsaw’d Unicorn, I am sort of partial to Miles.
Sure. He kind of looks like a Miles.
I always thought Gordon.
Of the most popular chainsaw brands, Jonesered, McCullough, Makita, Stihl and Poulan sound the most like possible human names. There’s also a brand called Earthquake, which is a pretty great horse name.
Oh, good suggestions!
Totally did not see that one coming? I was expecting some new badass design character or maybe the Vampire Prince or something? Buuuuut I’ll totally take the Chainsaw Unicorn any day! Nice twist you did there ^. ~b
“Oh, I feel so much better now, but also a little different”
“How do you feel?”
“Did you seriously just ask me that question?”
WHOAH. WHOAH. I really didn’t expect that. Really, in retrospect I should have, but… I could never have seen that coming.
I wonder what his cutie mark is going to be. 😀
Chainsaw Unicorn origin story!
(I officially proclaim this the bestest comic–EVER!!)
*crying* I liked the way he was before… but this is amazing!
I didn’t expect that… so that’s why chainsaw unicorn is kind to Modest Medusa!
But why did medusa’s mom have to become evil?!?!?!!?!?
