Modest Medusa 532 by JakeRichmond
Modest Medusa 532

- Oh my god, you guys really don’t like this teacher! I should point out that I did a poor job explaining why Modest was sent to detention. I meant to show that when she springs up in this strip for her impromptu introduction she’s interrupting class. I was going to show that by adding in some extra word balloons behind hers to show that she was talking over the teacher. But I didn’t do a good job of conveying what was happening. Anyway, that doesn’t mean she’s not a mean teacher, but Modest is kind of hard to handle.

– I’m taking next week off. Taking a few days off in Late May has become kind of a tradition. Plus it’s my birthday on Weds. I’m going to go see Mad Max with Kate, Will and Nick, hang out with Marah and work on the next Ghost Kiss comic. I’ll be posting some Ask Medusa strips as filler. I’ll also be posting a new Asami Loves Korra comic sometime next week.

- Thanks so much for all the computer advice everyone. I’m getting it figured out!

– If you’re enjoying Modest Medusa please consider becoming a patron. by contributing just $1, $2 or whatever you feel like every month you can help make sure I’m able to spend my time making comics instead of working just to make ends meet. I can afford to keep making Modest Medusa, Ghost Kiss and my Korra fan comics because of patrons like you! Check out my Patreon page here!

Modest Medusa 530
So my computer is slowly dying. I’ve knows this since late last year. The biggest symptom is that every now and then it will just shut off. It happens once every few days. I’ve gotten in the habit of saving frequently while I work, but I sometimes still lose stuff. That happened two week ago witha  Ghost Kiss page and a month or so ago with both a Medusa page and a Korra. page. That’s what happened today too. I finished up coloring and stepped away for a short break before I began lettering. When I came back the computer had shut down. I thought I had saved before I stepped away, but apparently I hadn’t saved at all during the entire process. It’s frustrating. It’s 7am now and I’m too tired to recolor the page before I go home to sleep, so today you guys get a black and white page instead of a color page. Sorry about that.

- Thanks for putting up with two days of filler in a  row! I’m back from Toronto now. TCAF was fun and it was nice to meet a bunch of you, but the whole trip was a little stressful and it’s nice to be back in Portland.

– The first Episode of my superhero comic Ghost Kiss is now complete! You can read the whole thing here. Please check it out!

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.

Do you plan on attending Linework NW good sir?  Forgive me if you've already answered this somewhere else. :S

I didn't get accepted for a table this year, but I plan on going to check it out. I missed it last year.

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'm usually in late in the evenings and early in the mornings. I work at night.

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.

Glad you liked it!
