Pirates of Yeld, part 10 by JakeRichmond
Pirates of Yeld, part 10
Awhile back the webcomic site Drunk Duck ran a Indiegogo campaign to raise money to spruce up their sight. Since Modest Medusa got it's start on Drunk Duck (and still updates there) I was happy to help out by offering  a guest appearance in the comic for auction. The winner was a nice woman who I won't name here, who decided that instead of appearing In Modest Medusa herself she'd like to see her character show up in the comic. So here's the character, a new pirate Mermaid named Red! I made some changes to accommodate the story (Red wasn't a mermaid and didn't have green skin), but hopefully thats okay!

 Oh Jesus. Jaspar has two hands! I swear, EVERY TIME I draw him I forget that he has a hook and I have to go back and redraw his left hand. This time I actually made it all the way through drawing, coloring and lettering the page before I noticed. And worse, he's USING his hand all through the page! UGH!  So I've decided that I'm going to leave it as is for now. I may fix it in the future. Possibly he's just drunk enough that he's imagining that he has two hands again.

I've just launched a new Kickstarter to produce a book collecting my 24 Hour Modest Medusa comics (with a special stretch goal to create a brand new 24 Hour comic). This Kickstarter lasts just 3 days and ends on Friday night. If the Kickstarter is successful my plan is to produce and ship these books within 24 days! Check it out here!

Just wanted to show you this Jake, I've been meaning to post it for over a year now. God I'm so far behind..

So, I just found your comic completely by-chance after poking through some marginally-related TV Tropes... uh... tropes! (Specifically, "Taken for Granite" lead me there.)
... ... ...
This comic appeals to many of my interests -- the two biggest being snake-girls and just plain ol' cuteness.  I wasn't sure what to expect, and most definitely was not expecting the climax of Chapter 1 to be what it was... but despite getting not really being sure of the direction, I stuck with it.  And I am very, very glad that I did.  Read the whole thing in about four hours and man, do I ever want more!  It's gonna be hard waiting three times a week...

I may have to tell more people about this comic  It's such a good read!

I don't know why this thought didn't come to me sooner, but has Modest played Metal Gear yet? XD
JakeRichmond Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2016
Not yet. Micah Berkoff did a guest strip that exposed Modest to Metal Gear. I've been waiting to play the new game before doing any MGS specific jokes.

Modest is probably the most adorable thing I've ever heard or read about.
