Ok. This is not a suggestion to improve anything. But why do the Mongrelfolk wear pants when none of them have belts and it's clearly a huge inconvenience.

Twitter and Patreon comments. And yeah, there are actually people telling him they like this. Not many, though.

It's basically an audience self-selected to be the only people who like it. Folks that follow him on Twitter and particularly Patreon are unlikely to do so if they hate the thing he makes, because it's way easier to just ignore the dude and hateread the comic.

You cna tell by his hairline that sex store monster is supposed to be a pervert. He conforms roughly to what Mookie thinks of as a pervert, ie. balding guy with weird facial hair. He's supposed to be sex creeping on snout.

Still a better gay character than Szark.

Hmm yeah I can see that he’s supposed to be perving. I couldn’t really read anything into the guy cause like, they’re both ugly as hell, and his body language doesn’t make any sense.

It's loving impossible to tell, because it could honestly also be a joke about Snout purposely ignoring this guy. We don't know, in part because we don't know how we got here. There's a gap in action between the pervert jumping out and his attempt to engage Snout. What is that book? Where did it come from? Why is Snout apparently so absorbed in it? I say "apparently," because it's a literal cut-and-paste job across six loving panels Mookie you lazy goddamn dick. There's no progression of facial/body expressions, so we don't know what Snout's feeling or thinking. (It's a bland and awkward pose, who reads by standing and holding the book at nipple-level from three feet away?)

We know nothing about this guy, either. Does he work at the store? Did he give Snout the book? Is he just kinda weird but friendly? Is he also a pervert? I can't tell from his pants dropping, because nobody in this universe just wears normal clothing that obeys physics or makes sense. gently caress, we don't know anything about the goddamn store; we don't even know if everything in the store is about sex, or if they stumbled into the Health & Sexuality section. God, that's a lot of words to say, "There's no set-up for the 'joke.'"

Listen some of these people with mongrel in their name just happen to write in a stereotypical hooked-on-fonics style we associate with illiteracy or a mental handicap, and that's fine. It doesn't mean anything, just like Santa's friend being someone in blackface is just good fun in the Netherlands.

Has there been a "isn't he deaf" plot hole? I think it's kind of offensive how him being deaf only effects comedy scenes and literally doesn't matter otherwise since he can write everything, but I don't remember a part where Mookie actually forgot Snout was deaf.

The book Snout is reading begins with a white cover. It then transforms into a black cover. It is currently a white cover.

I'm sure there was, but like hell am I going to read through the old pages to find it again. I think it had something to do with Inkwitch knowing his name?

I mean she could have read it from the sign outside his house, or the front of his diary... Although she was passed out at the time. I'd call it more sloppy writing than a plot hole - and it doesn't really have anything to do with him being deaf.

Edit: And if we broaden it into a "Mookie doesn't understand how deafness works" interpretation, this page could also potentially qualify.

That's the same cube Snout saw when he and Ink Witch were naked together.
