Modest Medusa 512 by JakeRichmond
Modest Medusa 512

- A few months ago my Mom came over to visit, and mentioned that she had caught up with Modest Medusa and was glad to see that Medusa was starting to act more like a normal child and less like an obnoxious twit. I’m paraphrasing, because I can’t remember exactly what she said, but it left me realizing that a lot of the time Medusa is really pretty awful. Of course, Jake is awful too and Marah wasn’t a great role model in a lot of ways either, and thats the fun of the comic, but I decided that when it was time for Medusa to go to school there needed to be someone who wouldn’t let her get away with that stuff.

– I’ll be doing a live draw thing on Saturday evening. Here’s the link. Come by and check it out!

Ask Modest Medusa 012

- I wasn’t feeling very good today so I decided to do an “Ask Medusa” instead of a strip. If you have any Medusa questions, please post them here!

– I will be at the Cherry City Comic Con in Salem, OR on April 11th and 12th. Come see me!

MM Patreon 2015 2-1 by JakeRichmond

February is Modest Medusa Patreon Month! Patreon is a way that fans and readers can support the artists who produce work that they enjoy by contributing a small amount of money each month. If you like reading Modest Medusa please consider supporting me through Patreon. Your support through Patreon helps me pay my bills and lets me spend more time making comics. I appreciate all the support!

My goal this month is to see my Patreon campaign reach the $1100/month mark. That would be huge for me, since it would mean Patreon would be paying for all my basic bills and monthly medical expenses. It would also allow me to start saving up for a new computer, which I desperately need. The most important thing is it would allow me to spend less time looking for freelance illustration work and instead focus on making more comics and art for you to enjoy. Like the new 4-page comic I’ll be posting either later this week or early next week!

So if you enjoy Modest Medusa and want to see more comics from me please consider contributing to my Patreon. Even just $1 a month really helps! You can check out my Patreon page here.

Playing catch up now, reading since 8pm yesterday.. yes, I stopped for sleep.
I remember why I stopped reading, Marah.
When she died, I just stopped reading, I really liked her. I am at the part where Modest is trying to write Marah an Jake has gone to the memorial.

That is how you know you have written a great comic, people get upset when the characters they love die or get hurt.
Keep writing.. an maybe.. Marah can live on because she was part of a great comic.

ps., yea, I know she isn't real. Not a crazy person.. well, not that crazy anyway. ;)

Thanks. I know a lot of people were upset by Marah's death and stopped reading the comic. I hope that as the story goes on they''ll see that her death was an important part of the story and Modest's life.
