This was supposed to go up yesterday, but the site is doing that 500 Internal Server Error thing that Ship in a Bottle is doing, so it looks like I finally need to get ahold of tech support.
Anyway, things aren’t going so hot for our heroes, eh? XD
Well, Peppermint’s fucked. And not in the good way. Is there anything our team can do to help her? STAY TUNED!
(You can find out faster if you help us propel our Patreon into the stratosphere! Click the graphic on the left sidebar if your abblocker permits it. ;))
You know you want to…
And that brings us up-to-date! Sorry I’ve been terrible about updating the comic of late, but a lot has transpired over the past months, so bear with me while I sort all this out. As always, Patreon helps a lot, so please join!
Holy shit! Turns out dragons have smokin’ hot human forms… and this one is a petite lady with badonkadonk for days!
Crude assessment aside, I have to say: this is quite possibly the best looking page of Peppermint Saga ever made across the two series. Oshigan and I spent a lot of time on designing Ember as she is a new addition tot he cast and pivotal to the plot. so not only did we want to make her drop-dead gorgeous, but very, very distinctive. Then we get to Fallon’s colors… holy moly! She busted out ALL the stops. Naturally, she got a extra bump for this week’s page. Now… this kinda sorta brings us up to speed. I’m waiting for pages 7 and 8, and then we will really be up-to-date (and apologies for the delays, I’ve been… up to stuff).
The group lands in a forest, but Truth suspicious. Wonder what he’s on about?
Hey, if you want more pages ON TIME, drop a few in the Patreon bucket and keep me on track. 😉
Well, shit. Now she’s pissed!
That catches us up with all the missing pages! Our normally scheduled comics will be here this coming week on Thursday and Saturday, unless Fallon’s holiday with her family makes shit weird. Then we’ll actually say something this time around.
Further proof that, although I am a complete ass-clown, I’m moving this along. (if the page is properly colored, disregard this message.)
Anyway, I’m putting up what I got and moving forward with the pages colored by actual professionals.
Scar is worried someday he may go too far. But Truth reassures him that he can be trained. I think it is important that acolytes of a order dedicated to a sex goddess be properly versed in the boundaries of consent. Also, this “berserker” business sheds some significant light on Scar’s initial reluctance to get it on with Peppermint as he wasn’t sure what he might do if given the chance to lose control. Let’s see if Truth is correct in that he can train Scar. Should be interesting.
Also, Patreon and whatnot. At current level, once this 4-week cycle is over, Peppermint Saga will go back to 1x per week… UNLESS we can skyrocket this thing to $600 and stay there. So please consider it!
But the question is… can WE unsee it? And do we WANT to?
Thanks to Patreon support, looks like we are going up to 2x per week for a bit. YAY! (Keep it coming, folks!)
If Truth had actual, functioning ovaries, they’d be receiving a hadoken punch right now. As it stands, probably going to just walk a little funny in human form for a bit.
Don’t forget to join the Patreon so we can keep going after Chapter 2! I can’t afford these amazing, wacky kids forever! Not unless I hit it big on those bacon themed scratcher tickets somehow…
“And then one time, at Wizarding School…”
Don’t forget: I can’t afford to keep these pages in color forever if we don’t fund Ship in a Bottle AND this up to FOURTH tier on Patreon. (we are less than $200 away!)
Truth discovers the awful truth *cough* about Scar’s failed formal training in being a monk of T’Londra, the Sex Goddess and patron deity of the majority of D’Gaerians. One of the side-effects of his power release is that he needs somewhere to channel it. Sexual stimulation results in him being a lightning rod for these energies. When properly applied, the results can be quite… pleasurable. However, Scar was never taught control. So now Truth has to “take one for the team” to prevent Scar from doing something despicable that he will regret and Peppermint will never forgive. Kinda reveals some important details about Truth. At the very least, he’s willing to take ownership of his myopia.
On a brighter note: Oshigan is now OFFICIALLY our artist after yet another laborious search. Fallon returns on colors… but I must warn! I cannot keep paying them indefinitely unless we get some serious help on the Patreon. As it stands right now, we are BELOW the water line for Ship in a Bottle’s usual 2x per week updates by SIXTY DOLLARS. If you ALSO want Peppermint Saga like this for more than a MONTH, we desperately need help getting to $520. That’s the magic number that will keep you all in the Pink (and out of the stink!). If we land that, Ship in a Bottle remains at 2x per week and Peppermint Saga remains at 1x per week without interruption! Let’s go get that extra $180 in there so everyone can be flush with their favorite manga-inspired porno comics and I can avoid developing skin cancer of the face holding a sign out by the I-10!
That’s how we roll over here at Peppermint Saga. If you’re the ghost of a man who is currently in the body of a woman, never pass up the opportunity to offer up your crass opinions about… well, anything, really. That said, Scar *IS* rather meticulous about his hygiene.
Be sure to check out our Patreon as funding us there keeps Peppermint Saga updates rolling. Remember: it’s not just me you are supporting, but the multitude of artists I work with. So please consider contributing. ;3
As advertised, Truth does what he (she?) wants.
First and foremost, I’d like to welcome our new colorist, Fallon. She’s going to be working with us for a while. Secondly, I’m hoping everyone gets cozy, because like Ship in a Bottle, my other long-running webcomic, this one is going to be Patreon driven, going forward. Now, that’s the good news. Here’s the bad: we have a very high bar to get this comic produced on the regular. It’s $600. We are already about $235 or so. So we’re not at ground zero, but we still need a lot of help. The $400 tier gets you two updates of Ship in a Bottle per week, and if we land that $600, I promise to be on time every Saturday with this comic. Plus, starting in October, $1+ Patrons get to see 1000px wide versions of the comics. Now, remember: you’re not just paying me. You’re helping a number of artists around the globe stay working on the regular. So, please consider dropping a few bucks in the pail.
Scar surveys the scene and looks for the important details…
Speaking of, don’t forget that if we make the micro-goals of $25, I will add additional panels of the gag pinup comics I did a sample of last year. So please consider dropping a few coins in the Chi-in to the right under the Chatango box. 🙂
Huh. Sorry for the missing week.
Anyway, looks like our boy here has an interesting condition. In the business, we call it “virginity”. Will Truth and Peppermint pop his cherry?
Truth leers, the audience cheers! Peppermint knows how to, ah… defuse the situation. However, the opposition withdraws their “complaint”…
Truth to the… rescue…?
After 5 years of fucking around, I can only say this: I am not promising a day or time for updates. I’d love to do Wednesdays. And maybe Fridays, too. But… we’ll play it by ear this year…
Updates resume at last! So, Saturday it is. And I’m going to work very hard to get these Saturday updates rolling along regularly. Stay Tuned!
She finds it cute, but does it get her hentai jibblies hard? Right then. Off we go into the wild, blue hentai backstory! So much for the “fuck your couch” attitude of skipping the exposition, eh? Some hentai, noble fucks have to just blunder right through. Seems to be their lot in this hentai, sexy, fucking fantasy life.
Saturday Update, as promised. Now get yer ass back in the kitchen… and bake me some pie! j/k ;P
The Truth revealed! Ok, yeah. That one was bad, even for me.
This page is an official recipient of the “Fozzie Award”.
WAKKA WAKKA, GET IT?!
Still haven’t quite got the whole “updating on a schedule” thing figured out yet. This means more erraticism beleaguering the delivery of my eroticism. I’m just going for “3x a week” now, and praying for the best.
Anyway, “seedy den of iniquity” is the safety phrase of the day. So all of you engaging in “extra curricular” activities involving “trust issues”, please keep it safe.
WAI, IT’S STILL SUNDAY IN JAPAN!!!
Man, that never gets old! Well… except when it does. ANYWAY, I find myself so spent, physically on Friday and Saturday, I’m going to TRY and make SUNDAY the new day on my “3x a week” schedule. It’s still a little iffy EXACTLY what days I will update until I can settle into a routine, but rest assured, I’ll figure it out. If all goes well, I’m gonna try Sun/Tues/Thurs. Saturday was always kinda “eh” on the response, anyway.
So, Peppermint and Truth make it past the guards. Obviously, Mint has some issues with authority figures who get up in her grill about silly superstitions. Hmm… sweaty and cast in irons… I smell “All-Girl Prison” arc plot in that notion…
Let’s see if we can make this productivity a… NO, NO, NO! I’m not going for th jinx, Goddammit!
Anyway, zings abound. As for “enchantment” and “magic” in Peppermint’s worldview, I’d say to her “Denial is not just a river in Egypt,” but I am sure the humor would be lost on her. Y’know, being from an alien fucking planet and all. *laughs*
IT’S STILL TUESDAY IN JAPAN.
In my defense, I told nobody that I was going to try and start updating Tuesdays, as well. ;P
This is the first in a stab at trying to go three times a week. But I’m still only committing to Thursday/Saturday as of this moment.
EDIT: Made a minor edit to the page to suggest passage of time.
Page 1 of “The Chains of Chastity”, and we’re already seeing Mint and Truth “hit it off”. Just a little witty banter to get y’all in the mood. See y’all again Thursday!
And… Truth is *STILL* a lech. But Lady Hildebard gets the last word in this chapter. ;3
A little flight of fancy I began back in September of 2007 has finally borne fruit. Peppermint has the sword, and the first member of her adventuring party. What lies in store for her next? Tune in Thursday for the next exciting chapter: “The Chains of Chastity”!
Well, well, well, ye of little faith. Here it is! The continuation of “The Sword of Truth”! It’s been a while, but this page felt good to make, and it’s even crisper in quality than the ones before it.
Seriously, if those of you still reading this don’t know what’s going to happen on the next page or what Mint’s next line of dialog is, hang up your “Porn Aficionado” cap and turn in your nametag. lol
3 pages left in Episode 1.
Oops? Truth is determined not to let this end on a bad note. Tune in Saturday for page 17 as we begin winding down our very first episode!
I don’t care if I’m late. All I care about is delivering a page twice a week. I keep hoping that I’ll develop a routine, but at least as many authors know, the creative “genius” is not a light switch we can flip on and off.
See ya Saturday-ish.
And there you have it. Even an all powerful esper in a golem body can’t stand up to the might of Mint’s taut vaginal muscles.
In other news: what the fuck is this??? Two updates in one week (sorta)?! That’s right, folks. We’re doing two. And I’m gonna do this as long as I can, or until I run out of script… whichever comes first!
Which means: I am revitalizing “The Official Peppermint Saga Challenge” as detailed on the vote incentive on Buzz. Now, I’ve learned from past mistakes about painting myself into a corner. *IF* we are successful, and readership skyrockets, I *WILL* update 3x a week, instead of just Thurs/Sat and Tuesday blog. Additionally, (and this is very important) I am not necessarily committing to Thurs/Sat as the specific update days. This means I could be “late” like today, so TECHNICALLY, for some of you, it’s already Sunday. All I can say is that I will find some way to keep delivering this quality or better 2x a week for now, and 3x if the challenge is met (and maintained).
Also, and this is fairly important too: please vote and favorite us on WebcomicZ, The Webcomic List, and Frumph.Net. Those sites are more heavily weighted on favorites, and not necessarily votes (but those are important, too). And if I am going to take 36 hours out of each week to produce these comics, then I am in dire need of your assistance. As always, it’s strictly voluntary, but you would basically help me to help you… get your fix of my comic each week.
Think it over when you get the time.
It’s kinda tight in there…
…so much the better!
Hey folks: don’t forget to vote for us at the various places we have set up. I’m hoping to be able to do bonus incentives if I can get off my fat ass long enough to make ’em. Plus, my other shit… I’ll make a more permanent blog post on Tuesday. This page won’t be staying here that long. 😉
and with the latest installment, we see an interesting reaction to the taste of Peppermint’s juices… explanations forthcoming next week! XD
Stay tuned, kids!
YE GODS, It’s FINALLY HERE!
And SURPRISE! I got Peppermint’s clothes off a LOT faster than I had originally planned! When I “redesigned” my characters to streamline them a bit, I also decided that I was going to change some of the rules of the Peppermint Saga universe. Had I not decided to tell you this right now, this “early” in the story, you’d never have known.
Prior to this update, I had planned on making Peppermint Saga a STRICT Sci-Fantasy series in that there was no Gods, Godesses, Demi-Gods, Magic, etc. Just “Espers” who were psichics who took the place of Magic users. Well, fuck that bullshit. We now have *BOTH*, and I gave Truth a “golem” form. (he can absorb matter from his surroundings to make a real, fleshy body for himself. So one of his powers is the ability to re-arrange matter.) There is also one more important change: Pep Saga is not going to be “Seinfeld with sex on a strange planet.” No no… now we have something that resembles an epic story in the works. It’s still “episodic”, but all of the episodes are leading up to a Lord of the Ring’s-esque Fantasy Epic Adventure™.
