Hey! For the next two weeks I’m offering free shipping on the Modest Medusa Season 1 book. You can buy it at the Cel*Style store. You’ll need to use the MMFREE coupon code on the shopping cart page before you check out. It’ll still ask you to select a shipping method (and price), but once you make it to the part where you pay you’ll see that the shipping cost has been changed to free. Sorry, this is just for US buyers. I just can’t afford to eat the cost on international shipping.
i’d wager the magic in the realm is changing him into a mythical creature for some reason. possibly due to being in an area with a high magic “charge”.
I am thoroughly astounded by how amazing the art has become. I really want to know what will happen next! Plus finally My beloved mom is getting me the book for my birthday! Yay the word free works miracles!
Thanks! You’ll dig the book. It has lots of extra comics.
Am I really the first to post? Whats happening to him? I can’t wait to find out
Firsties I think?
I will take my non-existant self-deluded prize now!
Things is getting serious. The first and most cliche possibility is that he is turning into a dragon… based on the horns. But I STILL wouldn’t rule out Chainsawicorn.
You guys with your “firsts”.
Tis the internet, we are all but bleating sheep, hoping to stand out among the flock. It doesn’t really matter to me, but it is standard internet protocol. And when I got here, I saw no messages present, so I figured I was first. Come back just now, and somehow there are 3 people ahead of me… *shrug* ah well.
It’s just funny to me because of the way I approve posts. Very often they’ll be 5-10 comments waiting to be approved, followed by a few more “firsts”. It’s cute.
You can just… not approve those.
1stness is a awsome place. In this world where we all come in 2nd 3rd and last on a daily basis its nice to be 1st.
Well, that’s true.
The prince has weird horn-like things on his helmet and Kerrigor has horns.
Hmm, very true. Forgot about the prince, honestly…. odd thing to say, considering he is kinda the big bad right now. But then if the horns are on his helmet, not on his head…. did he cut them off and glue them to the helm? Or maybe the horns just come through the helmet? (more obvious sounding when I type it out)
“Helmet” was used for lack of a better word. In the only picture of the prince we’ve seen he was all shadowy, so it could have been a horned helmet or it could have been some sort of mask thing designed to fit over his naturally occuring horns. Only time will tell.
The Chainsaw Unicorn has red hair 😛
Prolonged exposure to the Yeld environment changes people from our world. Jake and Mara gain super powers.
Jake can’t have super powers, he’s Batman.
That IS his superpower!
Mara gained them already from Urano, and Jake had superpowers before entering Yeld.
Oh no! Has he turned into an incubus?
Hmm. Well, he looks like one. Or a satyr.
They look like Kerrigor’s horns to me…
The dude is actually the prince. The medusa is Modest Medusa’s mom.
I wouldn’t want horns, but man, if hairsnakes let you read faster, sign me up.
I just wanna know how she gets a turtle neck sweater over her head.
Lots of squirming.
It’s got a good elastic neck and she pulls it up from below. Wait, that would be just as hard with the long tail. Umm….it zips up the back? Have we seen the back yet? =P
Camera turns pans to show the book over the medusa’s shoulder.
The text reads like a drug advertisment…
“Prolonged exposure to Yeld(tm) can cause itchyness, drowsyness, watery eyes, internal bleeding, modesty, rash, incontenence, erectile disfunction, unexplained memory losses, blurred vision, intense feelings of megalomania, impaired speech and thought patterns, horn growth, dismemberment, and dry mouth.
Yeld(tm) should be applied topically, and should not be used rectally or a rash may occurr.
Contact your doctor to find out if Yeld(tm) is right for you.”
Definitely not rectally.
Do not use Yeld(tm) if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or breast-feeding, have open wounds or sores, or if you have bipolarity or ADHD.
I was about to ask if Modest could read. I’m assuming yes because she can play Pokemon. Or, maybe she can read because she plays Pokemon? Or, maybe she can’t read at all?
Fantastic. I’m no closer to knowing whether Modest can actually read. I haven’t played Pokemon since Red, so I don’t know how important actual reading is to being addicted to the game on the DS.
I think she can, but I’m not sure where she learned how.
My sister learned to read from pokemon. She thought she caught the pokemon “ANTIDOTE” when she found one on the ground.
Oh no, spooky changes!
Do you look at the comments on drunkduck.com? Your posts on The Duck are not displaying the correct date. They all say “Nov. 21” now. It’s weird.
I read all the comments on Drunk Duck. I’m not sure why the date is stuck like that. I’ve tried fixing it a few times.
Wow, Modest’s mema was a scholar! And her mom seems pretty smart too. (and friendly)
Oh yeah! “First!”
aww crap. I just read the post about waiting for moderation :-p
He may be the prince he may not be but I think that he may have been cursed by somone so he could not return home and then another one when the caster saw his/her plan was not working that or he messed with the wrong ruin and got a ainchent curse from that cloak He who bears this cloak will become a hidious tifling
That sounds… familiar?
I’m totally loving the new layout and the story is very strong, I love it.
Nothing wrong with those horns. He doesn’t look like he has the neck muscles to use them in anger, but they’ll still protect his head to an extent.
I just love how in your drawing style, this Medusa looks mature, but still as adorable as Modest. Bravo, and I’m jelly. Also, I’m voting for him being a satyr, because they’re awesome. ;3
Thanks. Drawing an older medusa has been a lot of fun.
A simple panel stating that she studied for days to understand what was going on with him…
It’s funny how my thoughts toward such an action have changed because of the internet.
Jake I was rereading the season 1 book while looking forward to the season 2 book. I wonder why you assume that “the smoking bothered some people the boobs bothered everyone else.” I personally and am sure a fair number don’t call them the smoking mermaids, or the busty mermaids, But the Bitchy Mermaids for the attitude they give about and to modest.
I got a lot of crap over the Mermaids initially. A lot of friends and readers told me that either the smoking or the breasts were just inappropriate for a children’s comic. This was around the time I realized that most people thought of Modest Medusa as a children’t comic, and not just… you know… a comic.
I dunno. I think having the evil characters smoke is pretty good for a children’s comic. It makes kids equate smoking with being an awful jerk that no one likes.
Boobs, I dunno. They’re mermaids. Ariel dressed like that too. It’s a mermaid thing. They’re covered better than Modest, anyway.
Well this season is shaping up to show that this isn’t a children’s comic. As was lampshaded at the awards ceremony. But like that story you tell about the girl who called you a troll in school. Alot of us had bitchy girls like that in school so we see a rude obnoxious bully picking on the sweet naieve little Medusa. and we think “Those are some Bitchy Mermaids.” Luckily The only thing thats a bigger bitch then the Mermaids is Karma.
You can use that line if you like.
Thanks. I probably will.
That snake hair must be heavy.
lesson 1: don’t eat magic mushrooms
Two questions, Jake:
– Kickstarter ended last June (before I started watching KS projects, dang my bad luck!) for vol 2, any idea when vol 2 hardcovers will reach the MM store?
– remembering the discussions from last week about your comic, your site, etc, one thing came to mind for me: your site is fine, as far as I am concerned, except one thing – for some reason there is a serious delay on loading. I get the initial framework (background, top banner, left-side banners, the comic and the footer) but everything below the footer (the line that reads “Like, Tweet, Reddit, +1 and whatnot…” but not the icons below it), the comments and the right-side banners aren’t there for 25-30 seconds, I’ve timed it. Any idea what might be causing it? My company does block certain URL’s (facebook, twitter, youtube) and I’ve noticed sites containing widgets from those sites can have issues. Dunno if that’s the case here though.
– I think the middle of next month is it.
– I’ll check it out. Thanks for pointing it out.
Mmmmm, awesome cape in the second panel.
Thanks. I know you appreciate a good cape.
Not to bash the theory of “The magic of Yeld is changing him”, but isn’t the Prince a vampire? So under the assumption that he is the Prince, I would assume that he would become a vampire through the normal way in which vampire production is facilitated: via other vampires.
