-In case it isn’t obvious, Ekans Mom is speaking in the 1st and third word balloons in panel 1, and Jake is speaking in the second.
-I’ll be spending tomorrow (Saturday the 10th) drawing this years Modest Medusa 24 hour comic, and I’ll be streaming as much of it as I can stand. You can watch it at this link starting around noon and continuing forever and ever.
EDIT: I’m really sorry but I have to cancel Saturday’s 24 hour comic stream. I was really excited about it, but somethings come up that I need to take care of and I just can’t do anything about it. I’ll try to reschedule this stream for later this month.
Improved with age.
Looking at High School photographs will do that to anyone. 😀
Teenage Jake kind of looks like Bolin from The Legend of Korra.
It’s clear who’s speaking in the first panel, no worries!
High school wasn’t the best looking time for most of us, we generally look better in our 20’s.
Modest will laugh about this for ages, I doubt she even knows why though. Still funny!
I actually think I looked better in highschool then I do now. I still had optimism back then. Now my elementary school pictures! That’s a horror show! 0_0
Am I the only one that still looks like highschool photos? Man I remember in HS some people would actually call themselves and others “kids” and I just looked at them like.. you can’t be serious.. or is that just force of habit?
I don’t get why she’s laughing.
’cause he’s not in black ‘n ‘white anymore? no beard? maybe we’ll find out in a couple of strips?
This reminded me of fanfic in which a newbie time traveler is somewhat shocked when he sees his past self, causing the more seasoned time traveler to comment about the “yearbook effect”.
Jake: Alright… *points at picture in yearbook* …that’s her!
Modest: *!* BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA *rapid inbreath* AAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAA!
Meg: Oh Mom! What did you call that hairstyle?! *helpless giggles*
Jake: Right back atcha!
Meg’s mother: *pout*
She could be laughing at the picture next to Jake’s. That guy has the classic stare-straight-at-the-camera mug shot going for him.
I’m probably missing something obvious, but is there a way to subscribe to Modest Medusa? Without following it on a social network (since I don’t use those), but just so I’d receive email updates..?
Thats a good question. There’s an RSS feed, but I literally have no idea what that means or how it works, or even if such things are used any more. I know a lot of readers (even a majority maybe) read Modest Medusa on Facebook, G+, twitter, Tumblr or Deviant Art, all of which have their own subscription options. If you’re interested in becoming a patron you can contribute to my patreon (for as little as 50 cents each month), and one of the benefits of that is that you get email updates.
If anyone has any other suggestions I’d be happy to look into them. I always like to make sure I’m offering easy ways to read Modest Medusa.
Not sure myself – I’ve also tried using RSS once and I’m not sure it worked.
I also follow this comic: http://www.itchyfeetcomic.com/ – and right there you have an option to simply enter your email, and then it comes to your inbox as soon as it’s published. I’m not sure what it uses for that, maybe you’ll recognize something?
I’ll look into that.
When did Jake change his name from Bolin?
