lmao, incredible

I wish they had a forum or comments so I could see the rage below the line at going from Garth's art with lovely writing to that same writing with Mookie's art.

It's a ranking - not number of readers directly. Rank 1 is the number-one visited site online. Looks like Mookie took it from in the top 100k of sites to out of the top million.

Wait, hear me out--whatever we think of mookie he was definitely the bigger webcomic name in that collaboration right?

So doesn't that imply that most of the fans he himself brought to the new comic hosed off the minute he started drawing again?

Honestly, I couldn't give a gently caress about that tracing. He's not stealing another artist's work and actually taking a literally photorealistic scene and stylizing it to match with your cartoon art style without making the clash blatantly obvious is difficult.

What are you talking about, everybody immediately figured it was traced because it looks so different from his usual style for background scenes. The only way it could clash more is if he had just copy-pasted the original photo.

Fair enough. Nothing too egregious going on in this one. What the heck is the black spray paint tool in panel 4 supposed to be? Is Snout's spider sense tingling? Also this is just another mask of Mookie's one joke: Snout runs into a monster in the Mild Edge that looks scary, but actually it's nice. Speaking of Spider-Man, Mookie's lack of theory of mind means once more he doesn't understand there's a difference between what's on-panel and what the character would actually see. From the angle, Snout would see the cupcakes, so the joke doesn't even make sense.

Great update.

If this doesn't end in his deafness being cured or someone patiently trying to explain that a potion stand that claims it can cure deafness is loving lying, then I hate. I just hate.

That could have almost made the joke work a little if the silhouette had shown what looked like the dude screaming and gesturing angrily, and then we cut to a bottom panel that makes it clear he was just being like "HEY! YOU WANT A FREE SAMPLE? ALSO ARE YOU OK?" and Snout couldn't hear that due to deafness and ran-

you know what nevermind i'm putting way too thought into what could have been a viable joke in a comic about a deaf moron without dialogue when it's done by a loving comedic black hole like mookie

Look at what Snout looked like previously to now. I know I said let's not talk about art, but I was just going backwards in the thread and I realize he has morphed a lot in a few months time.

And triclops Minotaur is a much more interesting character design than Snout

I could buy Snout being too scared to even notice the cupcakes. What I don't buy is Snout, a mongrelman himself, being scared because another mongrelman doesn't look conventionally friendly.

It's a thread to talk about the comic. That's talking about the comic, so I think you're fine. That's a very good point. I kind of forgot, but you're right, Snout's appearance has drifted significantly since Mookie can't be consistent with his lovely art.

Mookie is anthropocentric and dumb. Film at 11.

It's kind of a pity we'll never see the minotaur mongrelfolk again. His design is pretty decent.

I'm wondering why Snout ran after drinking the non-edible potion, and is still running.

The vendor is by far, the person he's met who's best-placed to help with Snout having drunk a non-edible potion. He already knows what happened and probably knows what the results will be, and how to mitigate them if possible.

Does he think the Potion vendor tried to drug him?

His only actual character trait is that he's really loving stupid.

Panel 1: left hand over mouth

Also this confirms that he did, in fact, throw away his diary for this dumb bullshit.

I assume that it comes out when erect, like a horse or elephant, and just hangs out up there when not in use. Snout has definitely gotten softened and simplified as time's worn on.

The protagonist isn't just deaf, he's not just stupid, he apparently lacks any kind of peripheral vision.

What the gently caress is the point of any of this?
