Modest Medusa 545 by JakeRichmond
Modest Medusa 545
– Since the heatwave threw off my schedule last week and I never got around to posting a Friday strip I decided to do a double size strip today instead. Seriously, this heat is killing me. Work is fine. Nice and cool. But my room at the house is like a DOOM level, and the walk to work just feels like someone put a wet, hot blanket over my head. I hate it so much.

Asami Loves Korra: Battle Couple, part 3 by JakeRichmond
Asami Loves Korra: Battle Couple, part 3
So I wanted to do a comic where Asami takes the lead and kicks ass, while Korra acts as support and struggles to keep up. I feel like that’s a real reversal of their usual positions in battle. Asami is fearless in her own way, but she isn’t as reckless as Korra, so she’d need a pretty compelling reason to go chasing down her opponents in the same way Korra does…

If you dig my Korrasami comics and would like to see me make more please consider becoming a patron through Patreon. The money my Patreon generates allows me to spend more time making comics and less wasting time working just to pay the bills. I was able to do this comic because of my patrons and Patreon. Without them I probably would have never been able to afford to take the time. You can check out my Patreon here.

Asami is kind of an astounding fighter. While she’s rarely the center of attention, throughout Legend of Korra we see her take on all kinds of foes, including professional soldiers, spirit monsters and experienced Benders, and hold her own. I can’t remember if Asami has any formal training (I seem to recall something about self defense classes. Then again, it’s not clear if Mako and Bolin have any formal training either) but throughout the series she proves herself to be an incredibly effective combatant. Asami lacks that kind of broad martial arts prowess that we see with Korra. Instead she employs a more focused style that consists of quick kicks followed by a spin that brings her shock glove into play. We see her do variations on this move over and over again throughout the series. That’s not to say that Asami only knows one trick. Her fighting style is fast and fluid, relying on speed and rotating body movements that end in quick, effective take downs. I want to say this is inspired by Judo, but really I have no idea.  Asami often drops into the background during fights since Korra and the other benders are often paired off against bending opponents, leaving Asami to fight less interesting enemies. But when we do get a glimpse of Asami in combat she’s always impressive. Her first big fight in Book 3 is along side Korra against a group of motorcycle thugs. Korra does more damage during teh fight, but Asami’s take downs are effortless and elegant. Which is kind of her thing. Asami makes everything look easy and classy!

Hey, it’s a new comic! This is the first part of a new 6 part comic. I’ll be posting a new page every day, so keep checking back! I’ve been working on this story since early May and between work and other distractions it’s just taken forever to finish!

Same as drcrazy102, I also want to know if she's got skin, nails, or scales (pfft that rhymes).
We're eagerly awaiting this highly important data.

Hey Jake, I know this sounds probably a bit lazy, but can I ask for an "Ask Medusa" please? I can't remember how it is done normally, sorry.

Just wanted to ask if Medusa has 'normal', human-like skin or if she has scaly skin like snakes?

When are you usually in your office?  I'd like to drop by and shoot the shit sometime.  At least I'll know what the heck you look like if I ever show up to a con.

I've read the entire comic in one day, fillers included.
I thought it was going to be a light hearted comedy of a guy and the cute creature from the toilet. I got so much more than that. Holy shit that was a wild ride.
