– Back! Sorry for the delay. I hadn’t planned on missing almost a full week of strips. My hope is to have three strips this week, but we’ll see how that goes. I’ll almost certainly miss next Monday strip though, since I’ll be gone all weekend at Sakuracon. Speaking of…
– Come see me at Sakuracon this weekend. I’ll be at the Cel*Style booth (SP04) all weekend long. You can meet myself, Ben Hsu of Dubious Company and my brother Nick! We’ll be selling Modest Medusa stuff as well as a special play test version of the Magical Land of Yeld rpg. You can get the test booklet for just $5, or for free if you come down to the tabletop game room to play the game! We’ll be running games all weekend, so please come by!
– If you’re planning on being at Sakuracon (or just in Seattle) Ben Hsu and I would like to invite you to join us for dinner on Saturday the 30th at Obasan,one of our favorite places to eat in Seattle! Meet us at 7:30 and hang out till the restaurant closes! Please post here if you plan on joining us.
-My friend Jaymz did this awesome Medusa for me while I was feeling crappy next week. Please check out her awesome superhero comic Willem!
Sakuracon, you say? I suppose this calls for a “GIRUGAMESH” reference.
Aww so tender Momdusa with her newborns… Then eating them to live forever…
Conflicted emotions! Ahrrrg!
Mr. Mysterious Man of Redundant Mystery seems amused by this, judging by his face in the third panel. How sinister!
Aww… thanks for the shout out, Jake. I’m finally caught up with the whole series, I love it! See ya tonight if you’re coming to the meeting thing. 🙂
I;ll see you in a few hours.
Next week? So now you’re getting foresight so as to know when you’ll be sick?
Dragul (if that is, in fact, Dragul, and not someone else, perhaps an imposter) could still be lying, or even mistaken. I am not 100% convinced yet. Especially since Medusa’s mom doesn’t look the part of the armored behemoth shown in the text!
Though it does make sense. =
That means Medusa’s mom must die. Oh well, so sad.
*shiver* so eating her babies is the price for a long life – and from what we could see momdusa wasn´t exactly bothered by it. she happily gobbled them up even while they were pleading with mommy to let them go…..however, i fear this means that she+the prince will do everything to get the saved kids back for without her gruesome snack she´ll soon die.
You know I would say eating your children is always the cost of long life. Only problem is for humans those with a family are the ones that live the longest. O.o
I’m gonig to be at Sakuracon, and would like to join ya.
If you could stay young and live forever just by eating your babies, I wonder how many people would do it.
1-2-3 NOT IT!
Ask also how many people who wouldn’t otherwise have children would pursue that option if it made immortality available.
“Pity the child, but not forever, not if he stays that way,
He can get everything he wanted if he’s prepared to pay.”
Meduasas. Part of a complete immortal breakfast.
Aside from this comment I type now, I will not say anymore this page, as nothing I say can beat the comment above this.
Is he reading from the book?
Is he speaking from experience?
Did he write the book?!
My brain is full of WAT and damage.
This explains why she wanted them all back *gasp* maybe she wants to use Modest as her new body?! And that is why CSU is so hell bent on bringing her back, so he can get back momdusa from before!
I’m all excited and question wired now!
Thanks for the update btw 🙂
Welp, that escalated quickly.
Now that the Gorgon is cold and logical, it obvious what she has to do.
I wonder… How could I get my hands on a chainsaw unicorn hat? Who do I have to throw my money at, and where :/
We’re making more. We should have some for sale in the next month or so!
GAHHHHHH!!!! SHE IS GONNA EAT HER OWN CHILDREN!!!!
( And I thought my mom was harsh sometimes.)
Don’t eat the little medusas… their so cute! 🙂
Oh, gross. Those poor kids…!
So…a fate more horrible than the fate of the end of the Medusa lifecycle…
You’re only really squeamish about eating the first one. From then on you’ve already got a reputation, might as well live up to it.
I’m still wondering if they reproduce asexually or something…
Are the smaller snakes male and the large one a female?
Y’know. lil’ medusas are like potato chips and salted peanuts, you can’t eat just one.
I live in Seattle and I’m not sure if I’ll be attending Sakuracon (although I live just up the street from the convention center) but put me down as a definite “maybe” for Obasan.
I hope to make it to the dinner on saturday, but don’t count on me. There may be My Little Pony panels, and those will take priority (sorry but I love me some MLP). If there are none Saturday night, I’m in for dinner!
Hopefully we’ll see you there.
I am reminded of octopuses. While quite intelligent, they lay eggs, wait until they hatch, and die shortly after. Squid are similar I believe.
Yummy children keeps Moms young!
The Prince is sooooooo Zoltar from Battle of the Planets!
At first I was wondering if Modest had a lot of sisters because of something special the Prince did to/for/with The Gorgon (for maximum snacking power). But now it seems more likely that Gorgon’s mom just distributed the kids, instead of concentrating them into her private larder.
Gotta wonder how he can see through that opaque mask, must be either psychic powers or one sided glass
