  1. “Don’t tell them I said that.”

    You could be sure I would tell them. If said goddesses throw hissy fits or pout because they are called/described as imperfect,
    while they indeed, actually are imperfect, then that is their problem to deal with.

    But maturely so. Like the goddesses they are supposed to be.

    Long story short, you want to be called a goddess? You want to be revered and respected? Well own it.

    Yeah, I know. I am not one for white lies. 😛

  2. It’s a joke. Vito’s joking. 🙂
    It’s not a spoiler to say that Luna and Teria are big enough not to take offense at what other beings’ opinion of them is. In creating the Erogenian pantheon I wanted a different relatiionship with the goddesses than the usual, historical, human religion. If you read “The King Is Dead” which I wrote a few years ago and put up as a reward (and you can still read it as a patron on Patreon.com/JEDraft) it recounts how Ipola opened the Tower Of The Moon after her father and brother and sister were killed and became queen. She has a visit with Luna, who uses the form of Ipola’s dead mother Ravonna to basically set her on the path to her throne and the uniting of all Erogenia.
    To quote Luna, speaking to the young Ipola:

    ” … I will not tell you what to do, now. You’re much too grown for that kind of a goddess. But know that I love you, and that I will help my people as a mother sometimes helps her grown children. But: I cannot make your choices for you. We won’t interfere directly anymore, as we did when we cast out Shuach, and locked this tower against today. Your world is now yours, to make of it whatever you can – or can’t. Know that your way is not going to be easy, and that you carry inside of you the seeds of failure as well as the seeds of success and greatness. Go now. Greet your people as a queen, and glory in your moment. You do and will deserve it.”

    Now Shuach, on the other hand is a narcissistic asshole. Like a lot of the old gods, but that’s another subject.

    Warm regards,

    -JED

  3. Well, I think the lesson of ‘Zona is the meat shield’ is going to stick after this. XD A week in a coma/trance. Yep, Mentl messed up. He can only hope Shuach et al don’t move too quickly and make an appearance before he’s healed.

  4. @Lora I don’t think so. Not because I don’t think you are right. Mentyl has known for a long time that Zona was “the meat shield”, that wasn’t the problem. What happened was, in the moment, Mentyl instinctively acted to protect the people he loves. That is a good thing and the exact opposite of what Shuach is about. Mentyl has always known he isn’t the fighter. Understanding Zona and her abilities does not help the knee jerk reaction that comes up when he perceives a threat to her or to Tula for that matter. This is the “weakness” Shuach and his followers talk about while not understanding how it is a great strength.

  5. “[…] compared to a normal cat like you or me […]”
    Damn, if Vito and Michael are “normal cats”, then I shudder at thinking who’s their n+1. 😛

  6. Looking back at it, I like Vito’s playful smirk hidden by his beard in the last panel. Definitely sounds like a grandpa or a great-uncle that you’d like hanging out with.

Valentine’s Day Sex Drive 2020!

This year we are once again participating in a sexy web comics promotion.  We have a nice little pinup most of you would enjoy, and links there for a lot of other folks’ comics and sexy art:

HELP AUSTRALIA NOW

My people, this is a global ecological emergency.  *All* of us need to pitch in as best we can.

So if it helps you get motivated,  then Zona, Mentl and all their friends are willing to bare it all for you to get the resources where they’re needed.  Send me an email with a forwarded receipt or screen grab of an Australian 10 dollar (or above) donation and we’ll send you a nice sexy pic of the “Challenges of Zona” character of your choice.

I chose these two organizations as being the ones that will help the wildlife and the people, but I am willing to accept any proof of (recent) donation to any accredited relief organization dedicated to assisting with the fight against these horrific bush fires Down Under.  


I’m a Californian, and I have seen my share of nasty wildfires, even more and worse in recent years. The Australian fires make anything I had to be evacuated from seem like a grease fire in my kitchen.  If you think you are safe from the effects of this disaster because you live on the other side of the world, think again.  This is worse than any fantasy world-beater my imagination could come up with.  I have given and will give again.  

For those of you who just like to click: 

WWF:

Red Cross:

I’ve given and will give again next paycheck.  How about you?

Warmest regards,

Zona G8 Mk2

Just at the moment, we’re temporarily stalled on the animation project. So we’ve taken advantage of the lull to revisit the Gen 8 model of Zona, and I think this time, even more than last, we’ve hit it on the head. So Brian came up with a couple of pinups of her of which this is a closeup. If you want to see more (much more) become a Patreon patron at https://www.patreon.com/JEDraft

Warm regards, all!

R.I.P – P-Chan

My heart is heavy tonight. We had to say goodbye to my dear constant companion and the inspiration for all the black cats in “Challenges Of Zona”, my beloved friend, P-Chan.
He was very old and finally was very confused and in great pain. So we eased him into Summerland Thursday evening.
Nonetheless, he’s still there in the past and in my memories, and in Inky and in Incus and in the one-eyed winged cat from the Otherwhen. (Yes, long-time readers will remember when he lost his eye to an abcess, years ago.)

He was a very very very good boy.

Warm regards,
JED

RIP, Peter Tork.

When the world and I were young, just yesterday
Life was such a simple game a child could play

It was easy then to tell right from wrong
Easy then to tell weak from strong
When a man should stand and fight
Or just go along

But today, there is no day or night
Today, there is no dark or light
Today, there is no black or white
Only shades of gray

I remember when the answer seemed so clear
We had never lived with doubt, or tasted fear

It was easy then to tell truth from lies
Selling out from compromise
Who to love and who to hate
The foolish from the wise

But today, there is no day or night
Today, there is no dark or light
Today, there is no black or white
Only shades of gray

It was easy then to know what was fair
When to keep and when to share
How much to protect your heart
And how much to care

But today, there is no day or night
Today, there is no dark or light
Today, there is no black or white
Only shades of gray
Only shades of gray…

Valentine’s Day Sex Drive 2019

I was approached by some of my fellow Webcomic creators about a Valentine’s Day cross-promotion where we create sexy images of our characters and put them out there along with everyone else’s for Valentine’s Day.

“Sexy stuff!?” I cried, aghast, “With Zona? Heaven forfend!”

But after a little persuasion, I decided to go ahead and put one out there. Follow the links and see mine and everyone else’s.

Happy V-Day all!

Warm regards,

JED

GRAND ANNOUNCEMENT- ZONA ANIMATED

Over the past year, my Patreon patrons have been generously giving me money to pursue my vision of an animated web series based on The Challenges Of Zona.  In return they get early updates, desktops and other fun stuff.   But all of it has had one goal.  And we have just passed the first milestone on the way to that goal. I have just made the first payment to a talented young animator who is contracted to produce a 61-second fully animated trailer for The Challenges Of Zona. We’re both really enthusiastic and I have high confidence that, within the next month or two we will have something to show folks that we’re serious about bringing a new fantasy phenomenon to the web. I needed all of you, patrons and fans alike to support me in this and you have not disappointed.  Eventually everyone will see the end product, but Zona’s patrons will be in on all the latest updates, new character models, tests, renders and everything as it happens, plus any other extras we can give in humble gratitude. So be not shy.  And, if you can, buy into the future of fantasy entertainment.  one dollar, five dollars -ten or whatever you can afford.   You won’t be sorry!  This is happening! We’re doing it.  We’re moving forward.  We’re bringing Zona to life. In the word of the great Stan Lee: EXCELSIOR!! Watch this space! Warmest regards, JED   https://www.patreon.com/JEDraft
