Modest Medusa 460: Bugging out
- I’ll be at Geek Girl con in Seattle on the 11th and 12th, and at the Retro Gaming Expo in Portland on the 18th and 19th. Come by and say hi! I may or may not have some new prints to sell.
– Still really digging Destiny. Just made it to level 22! I wish i actually had more free time to play.
– We’re still a bit of a ways away from the end of this season, but I wanted to warn you guys that I’ll be taking a short break before the next season to celebrate the new years, work on a new Ghost Kiss comic (and maybe finish a Pokemon fan comic I wrote last year), finish up my commitment to the 3rd Hereville book for Barry Deutsch, work on the Yeld game and just kind of relax a little. It won’t be a long break, and I’ll still be posting stuff three times a week (including some guest strips and some new vacation comics you guys haven’t seen yet), but I wanted to let you all know the plan ahead of time.
– Patreon! We’re so close to teh $800 MileStone Goal! If you like Modest Medusa please consider contributing. Even small amounts help out, and I wouldn’t be able to do this comic without your support! Here’s the link.
Modest Medusa 459: Police
- Here’s a nice big page. Thanks for waiting! That’s Lester Freamon who showed up for the kidnapping call. Bunk doesn’t seem to be with him this time. Maybe they’re not partners any more?
– OMG! My Patreon is SOOOOOO close to breaking $800, which is the next Milestone Goal. $800 is the point where Patreon pays my basic rent, studio rent and groceries, which is pretty huge for me. I still have lots of other monthly expenses, but $800 a month that I don’t have to worry about is huge. The $800 milestone goal is an illustrated “Ask Medusa” regular feature, where Medusa answers readers questions and gives horrible advice. I think it will be pretty cool! you can check out my Patreon page here.

- Wooooo! Modest Medusa won both the 2014 Drunk Duck Awards for both Best Overall Comic Strip and Best Fantasy Comic! I’m so excited about this! Modest Medusa got it’s start on Drunk Duck, and the DD community is a big part of this comic’s success. Thanks so much!
– Modest Medusa will be back on Monday with a big super sized strip. Make sure to check it out!
– If you dig Modest Medusa please consider contributing to my Patreon. Patreon money goes directly to paying my living expenses, allowing me to focus on making comics. I really appreciate the support, and every dollar helps!
Modest Medusa 458: Toothfacer
- I’m having a studio sidewalk sale on Saturday as part of the Fun on Foster street fair! If you’re in Portland and around the intersection of SE Foster and Holgate (on 63rd) come by and check it out. I’ll have discounted damaged books, old t-shirts, left over prints and other odds and ends Medusa stuff for sale! If it’s not raining. If it rains I’ll stay home and play Destiny.
– I know I’m always mentioning Patreon, but it’s a big deal to me and it helps out a lot. I don’t know what I’d be doing without it and I super appreciate all the support! Right now we’re just about $50 away from the next Milestone goal, which is a regular ask Medusa feature where I’ll draw Medusa answering reader questions. I think it’ll be cool! If you like the comic and want to help out please check out my Patreon page!
- Today’s strip is taking a little extra time to draw, so here’s some filler instead. the delay is totally because the strip is bigger than normal and not because I’m spending too much time playing Destiny. Really.
– Marah’s birthday was this weekend. I got her swords.
– I work in the Foster/Holgate neighborhood in SE Portland. This coming Saturday is the Foster Street Fair. If the weather doesn’t suck I’ll be opening my studio for vendors and selling a table full of t-shirts, posters and odds and ends Medusa stuff for cheap. Come by and check it out!
Here’s some Oathbreaker art from the Magical Land of Yeld RPG. Slowly but surely it’s getting closer to done
- I’ll be at the Rose City Comic Con in Portland this Saturday at booth S-07. Come see me and get some cool Medusa stuff. Saturday only! I’m taking Sunday off for Marah’s birthday party.

Modest Medusa 456: Easily distracted
- I’ll be at the Rose City Comic Con in Portland this Saturday. Come by and say hi!
Korra and Asami as a Nomad Riot Grrl and a Haqqislam Odalisque from the Spanish scifi miniatures game Infinity. This was a recent commission. I’m a huge Infinity fan and a huge Korra fan, so this was a lot of fun!
The Riot Grrl’s nipple plates are part of the design, unfortunately. I thought about changing them, but… whatever. They look a little silly on what is otherwise a very cool power armor design. You can see the original model here.
