Webtoon ‘Minion’s Quest’

Good News everyone! Jonathan Ian Mathers, creator of the animated cartoon series Neurotically Yours starring Foamy the Squirrel, is venturing into the realm of Fantasy with a new web series. It’s called Minion’s Quest and follows the adventures of a Succubus, Velosa, who, upon being summoned, arrives to discover her Master nowhere to be found; her quest is searching for him in the strange new world she now inhabits.

I suspect she may be from a Futurama-type Universe as Velosa uses the word ‘axed’ instead of ‘asked.’ I love subtle geek references and this promises to be chock full of them!

Inspired by World of Warcraft and encouraged by internet successes like The Guild Mathers felt the time had come to realise a concept he’d been sitting on for 5 years! He says “It’s no secret I’m pretty geeky” and “I really need to work on something that isn’t centered around NYC. Foamy, 4y, Dia & Tofu all take place in Manhattan so this gives me a chance to go beyond my comfort zone.”

Pg 29: Half-What?

This week in Epic Fail: Tinuvielle explains to Yoru that he is adopted and that both his Parents are dead, but won’t elaborate on how they died. Yoru’s reaction is impressively calm.

Creator’s Commentary: I thought Yoru would be hell to draw and surprised myself by doing a pretty consistent job! Expressions were quite a challenge, mainly because they’re so keyed down. This was an exercise in subtlety. Both characters are being very controlled; Tinuvielle because she’s worried about upsetting her son, and Yoru because… well… that’s what the nuns have been teaching him these past six months. He has demon blood, can you imagine what that’d be like if it wasn’t controlled?
