Is his art getting worse or is it just because he's attempting to go outside of his comfort zone of side view talking heads?

If I had to guess, hes taking his original style, which heavily cribbed from the worst parts of anime, and trying to apply more detail on top. You can still see the framework of the snout but now hes trying to add a bunch of anatomy on top without studying structure first. Doing a silent story was kind of a bad idea since it relies solely on your art, and this is Dominic Deegan.

He really has to remind people that Snout is deaf. Just, shove it in our faces.

I don't know why I'm focusing on this, but the basket is weirding me out. I have so many questions about it.

- Why does he put her in the basket instead of just carrying her? All he did was add an extra step.
- Why does it change sizes three times? On the last page it was medium size, at the beginning of this page it became tiny, and by the end of the page it's big enough for her. (Ok, I know the answer to this one.)
- What was he even doing with the basket? There's nothing outside on the DBZ plain he lives on and the basket started empty. Is he collecting rocks? Does he eat 40 pounds of grass for every meal?

I think he uses the basket to avoid getting blood on his clothes. The basket got bigger because as we all know dead woman's blood can enlarge things.

Ahahahahaha no dialogue in this story, right right

Only took him, what, a dozen pages to introduce a character that inherently can get around that limitation with no trouble at all? How long before he figures out a magical way for Snout to converse back?

Also, things in Snout's house:

- basket
- bedroll
- pillow
- nothing else

Guess I should've known by "silent story" he meant no text bubbles. Less Journey and more The Quiet Man.

Not sure it would take any prompting to understand that a bleeding person needs help. Snout had already started working that out anyways so the message is both late and unneeded.

At this point does the story really need to be silent? Could you not, say, trim all the fat that's used to convey they aren't talking and then put speech bubbles around the text without losing any information?

Star Power? It's still going. It's currently in the middle of a successful kickstarter for a printed book. I guess it's just too boring for anyone here to care about, I know I got like 5 pages in and completely lost interest.

There might be some of his trademark storytelling in there, but maybe it's the competent art that just keeps it from being a compelling trainwreck? I dunno, if someone else wants to dig into it to see if there's anything there, go for it.

Star Power is just a boring and mediocre Green Lantern comic. With someone else there to curb him, it's not quite the hilarious train wreck that DD is (though I hear that now that Mookie's taken over drawing it, it's gotten entertainingly worse).

also like star power's readership apparently took a massive dive after he started drawing.

Or he could've just skipped all the words:


Like the ship has been in every other page so it's not exactly subtle, but it's an attempt.

I'm pretty sure that was just a one-issue special thing and the artist is still working with him.

This is actually much better. Not only does it not cheap out on the whole 'no words' thing, it also has a level of intrigue to it that a proper conversation wouldn't.

This whole series of events would make more sense if Snout found the witch first, she used her blood magic to tell him about the ship, and they dropped the subplot with the piece of paper.
