– I’ve been watching an anime called Tokyo magnitude 8.0 while I work on the comic this week. I’m liking it a lot, but… oh my god, the main character is such an annoying little crap! Anyway, I picked up some cheap anime at Sakuracon and I’m pretty excited to watch it. I also got Gundam Unicorn, Tweeny Witches and Children who chase lost voices (which I’ve seen and really like). I wanted Sword Art Online, but it’s not available in English, and I can’t watch sub-titled stuff while I draw or stuff envelopes. Oh well.
– Want to take an early look at the Magical Land of Yeld role playing game? Nick and I have released a play test pdf that you can download for free right here. This is an unedited, un-proofed, art-free game text. Feel free to check it out or even play a game. You can also provide feedback at the new Yeld play test forum!
I feel like I should know where this is going…
HIS BEARD MAGICALLY GREW BACK!!!
Aww. I wanted the “punching the beard off” to be canon. Having the Prince emerging from the lake while carrying the beard… That would have been glorious.
Ah, but the prince didn’t count on one thing – BATMAN!
Batman dances on the border of good and pure, and now he’s in your kingdom.
kill the prince…
I wonder how the economy is based in a kingdom where everyone good turns into a monster.
It’d probably be a case of you don’t have to be a monster until the day you die. I mean, he did say “Eventually.”
Why am I thinking back to when Modest explained where bears came from…?
so if modest stays out of yeld she wouldn’t become a monster?
depends what you mean, Modest will eventually have her main body wither away and replaced with a snake that will go lay eggs, thats inevitable, what isnt set in stone is her eating her kids to keep living
Is that the Gorgon, objecting?
not that much of a monster… it would seem if that is her
Oh man, Tokyo Magnitude…I didn’t realize it was dubbed. The ending will break your heart. D;
(PS is that Modest objecting I wonder?)
Well that is 9/10 probably the Gorgon. And that doesn’t really surprise me that she’d object. I mean, her “self” is still in there, part of the whole and all that, just…. a nugget center, rather that on the outside.
Her objecting to the demise of sage-beard-horse isn’t that far out of the realm of (yeld, err) possibility.
Go save Sage-Horse, Gorgon! …. Granted… I see a chainsaw and some super glue in the near future for him…
Finally, I think this is the longest “part x/xx” arch I’ve ever seen in a webcomic… ever! Twenty four parts and probably still going!?! You are a mad man, Jake!
yeah, I originally thought it would be less than 15.
Well, fine, Prince Charming. Just think of what sort of a monster Modest is likely to turn into. And consider – she has Pokemon. All the Pokemon. Fear the Pokemon.
I am on the edge of my s-…I just fell of the edge of my seat!
So if you’re not good, you’re safe? 😉
GO DIE IN A HOLE PRINCE!!!!!!! -_-
even if you look kinda like look like batman…YOU WILL NEVER BE BATMAN, CAUSE YOU’RE TOO EVIL!!!!!
I HATE YOU! *crying and screaming*
I don’t know why I lost it there…
I’m sorry Jake. 🙁
Continue on! 🙂
Excellent comic is freaking excellent.
– “And you’re a case in point.” *smug*
I’d say that the prince looks like a cross between Batman and Sauron, with definite shades of Disney witch-queen and Zoltar from Battle of the Planets.
Th design is really a cross between Grifith from Berserk, Hela/Loki from Jack Kirby’s Thor and David Bowie from Labyrinth. You put all that together and it kind of looks like Batman, which is also just fine. Really, if Prince had designed the costume for the Tim Burton Batman film as well as doing all the music, this is what I imagine it would look like. Anyway, I like it a lot, and I feel like I can say that because it’s so obviously not an original design, but a combination of awesomeness from some of my favorite artists.
I thought I caught a hint of Jareth in his outfit.
Mostly from the cape, but also kinda the way he gave that half-smile as he read from the book.
Never underestimate the power of David Bowie’s pants.
Jareth musta lent him that cod piece, much safer than giving him the all powerful bone pants.
Friday jake when will you post the new page
Still working on it. Saturday, most likely.
I have read just a bit of the Magical Land of Yeld RPG (first 20 pages and scanned another 15 or so), and like what I see. It seems like a good introductory RPG (veteran of 1st and 2nd Edition Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, and later the Palladium RPGs, and, of course GURPS). At some point, when I am not beset by “Projects” and “Presentations” for college, I will take more time to read and think upon it, and offer suggestions on the Yeld playtest site.
Also, since I’m kind of a selfish jerk (though protective of those for whom I care) would I be safe, or would that protective nature turn me into some over protective Ogre that restrains the one’s for whom I care in a misguided attempt to keep them safe?
Probably the later.
I too have read the Yeld PDF, and am loving it so far. It’s giving me some early-series Final Fantasy vibes in all the right ways! Keep it up, man!
…I must find some whippersnappers to test this on.
