Wait, what?
On July 2, 2019, Mookie posted the first strip of the sequel to one of the most infamous webcomics out there, Dominic Deegan.

...what?
I know!

Details are few right now, except that there will not be any dialogue at all and the art has literally not changed, so I've got a good feeling about this.


I'll try to expand this post as the comic continues.


Thread rules:

Only poo poopost about Legacy of Dominic Deegan. Not that I mind, but the original Dominic Deegan is dead and buried at this point. This new webcomic should...well, I want to say stand but....stumble? It should stumble on its own merits.

Especially to see how deafness will definitely be treated in a tasteful and respectful manner, not to mention any prejudice against the, uh, "mongrelman" protagonist.

I forgot 'mongrelmen' were a thing and thought he was an Orc at first. Also whoever compared it to The Quiet Man: I hope to god this is just like The Quiet Man and there are scenes that take place completely away from where the deaf POV character is that should theoretically have sound or be voiced and it makes no logical sense for them to be silent as well and it's transparent that all you did was cut out all sound entirely and have an inconsistent framing device and third person omniscient-but-not-really narrator.

I am undone and impressed by his ability to just fall face-first at the starting line by placing his two opening pages in the exact opposite order they should have been posted in.

As it stands now:
Page one: there is a dead lady and paper is in the wind. The world is silent due to the fact that the focus of this story is nobody right now and this is just a scene out of context.
Page two: our protagonist finishes his shirt's additions and finds a bit of paper in the wind. We are lead to believe our protagonist is deaf and he can't communicate through quick shorthand if he needs this patch to tell people he's deaf.

Put it in reverse and you have:
Page one: our protagonist finishes his shirt's additions and we understand that he is deaf and also unable to communicate through quick shorthand if he needs that patch. He finds a bit of paper on the wind.
Page two: there is a dead lady and this is where the paper is blowing from. There is the implication of him following the paper and finding the body and the mission statement of "our protagonist is deaf and as such there's no dialogue" is upheld. You have the benefit of speeding the story along and not needing to waste a page (let's be real: or more) on "the protagonist walks around in silence to find the source of the wind-paper.

And then you can have page three: a reaction shot of the protagonist being like "oh no this lady is totally dead for reasons that are organic to this story and aren't artificially constructed by the author" and the illusion of authorial control by waiting until page two to tip the hand of your fetishes instead of page one. Plus like, conservation of detail and action (but then again this is a webcomic and when has "speeding the plot and actions of the characters along" been much of a goal for most webcomics).

It was so much fun to mock with a group.

The art was horrible, but not eye-searing or incomprehensibly so (usually). The writing sucked major rear end, but not enough to be unintelligible. There was enough sincerity and dedication from the author, but it was also incredibly lazy. Terrible things happened frequently, but they weren't the same terrible things -- there was always something new to surprise you.

That reminds me, what was that webcomic where everyone was super wrinkly and the proportions made it look like it was drawn by a xenomorph that had heard descriptions of humans? Some kind of bee super heroine.

The worst part is that when he draws not-DD stuff, he actually has gotten better. It's like he wants to draw his comics like this.

All you need to know about it is that the main character was an oracle, which meant he'd sometimes have visions that teased the next Bad Thing he'd have to prevent. His girlfriend was a human with orc tusks that destroyed her self esteem most of her life. All of the problems were ultimately solved with DBZ-style anime fights, but but badly drawn and with the least engaging visual structure possible.

There was also the time Mookie decided that he was going to contrive a scenario where a surprise sex could be heroric and absolve the rapist of all wrongdoing.

This is the level of quality to expect in this comic.

I couldn't parse this page until I realized that it seems to be in reverse chronological order, like Memento, all of a sudden.

At least I THINK that's what's happening. Why would he only start doing that on page 3 if so?

In the old thread, I used to always post edits, I think someone found where he stored the next day's comic before uploading so I had time. I'd often edit in the one fat character, replacing giant monsters or having him rail Stunt's mom. Then one day the ancient necromancer pulled back his hood to reveal his face was actually that fat guy, I posted it unedited and for an hour people were screaming it was fake and for people to post the real comic and instead of this obvious fraud.

That comic got so ridiculous at times.

The image registry on his website was public for a long time. Like Mors said, he'd keep all sorts of weird stuff like his "Pretty Dead Girl" pinup photos there, and a few test pages for another comic idea about a necromancer with a death fetish and his hot demon girl minion. It was eventually set to private but it was also around the time his server hosting changed, so most likely the new host just defaulted to a private setting and Mookie remained unaware. I haven't checked in a few years (and I'm not going to because blehh) but most of the creepy stuff was also posted to his DeviantArt, so it's not like it was a private shame for him anyway.
