Modest Medusa is the story of a guy named Jake who comes home on Christmas Eve to find a five year old Medusa living in his toilet.
I'm Jake Richmond. Modest Medusa is the story of a guy also named Jake who comes home one Christmas Eve to find a 5 year old Medusa living in his toilet. They don't get along. The Modest Medusa webcomic started last New Years day and has been running 3 times a week ever since. Time to print a paperback collection!
Modest Medusa Season 1 will collect the first 100 strips from the webcomic. The book will be printed in full color by a trusted printer I've used for past projects. I've also taken the time to redraw and color several panels to make sure that this version of Modest Medusa is the best looking ever!
Modest Medusa Season 1 will contain a whole bunch of bonus content, including:
- A brand new 10 page story featuring the Medusa, Jake and Marah!
- A photo gallery starring the real life Jake and Marah, featuring a special guest as Medusa!
- An expansive illustrated interview with the entire cast of the comic, plus special guests!
- For the first time ever, the original 15 Modest Medusa strips in full color!
But wait... there's more! For every $400 we exceed our funding goal by I'll include an extra 3 page comic in the book, featuring a Modest Medusa supporting character!
So if we reach $2500 I'll include a new 3 page comic featuring the Bitchy Mermaids!
If we reach $2900 I'll include a new 3 page comic featuring Charles the Fish Scientist!
If we reach $3300 I'll include a new 3 page comic featuring the Chainsaw Unicorn!
If we reach $3700 I'll include a new 3 page comic featuring Medusa's head snakes!
After $3700 I won't be adding any more bonus comics, but further contributions will of course still be appreciated!
UPDATE! Totally changed my mind! If we reach $10,000 I'll add in a 3 page comic featuring Medusa's Mom!
Where does the money go? Every bit of funding will go to printing copies of the Modest Medusa Season 1 paperback collection. I want to print as many as I can!
International contributors! If you live outside of the United States please consider including an extra $4 to cover shipping of your book or other rewards. Thanks!
