Im impressed at all the complex layers of bs mookie had to set up to remotely justify it. Like he obviously had to add 20 layers of poo poo to cover up all the plot holes of why it had to UNAVOIDABLY happen and also not be noble stonewater's fault.

There is also a noticeable dearth of highly-trained orc hymen inspectors sharpening their knives outside the princess's bedchamber in these.

Hymen and/or cum inspectors. Honestly this is the grossest and worst part of the whole thing. He obviously saw a plot hole that would let the characters get out of it without going through with the deed so he had to add that last horrifying cherry on top to seal the deal.

We'll either never find out because he doesnt care about that plot thread anymore, or it will be explained shortly via snout being presented with a thesis-worth of paper based exposition (no dialouge)

Well, sunflowers are monoecious, but i doubt mookie knows that.

Once again going to throw out the “it becomes a sex cult with Snout as the messiah figure” theory for maximum inappropriateness points

i have no doubt in my mind that Mookie was probably into the old 90s-00s harem animes (do they still do those?) so considering the rest of his 00s anime scene nostalgia it seems highly likely

The puke panel is one of the funniest things I've ever seen drawn in a "serious' context. How could he draw that and not realize how loving goofy that poo poo looks, and if he did mean it to look goofy way to purposefully gently caress up the tone of your body horror monster

That is correct. Her remaining eggs were scooped out by that one dragon ghost thing and given to childless couples throughout the kingdom to become the next generation of Deegans. I dread Mookie coming to revisit this eventually in Legacy.

I like how mookie was too lazy to actually write anything or even scribble on the pages in Snout's hands to imply writing. Snout is just making a weird face at a stack of blank pages.

These giant stacks of unbound pages are driving me insane. What do the rest of those pages contain? That's a full manuscript amount of pages. One slip and they're all on the floor, never to be organized again.

Idk why I never thought about it before, but its kinda weird that Mookie obviously is (attempting) a manga style, with a lot of anime/manga inspired tropes, and yet the original DD is in an american newspaper comic format

Well you see, lovely manga style is easier to draw, but American newspaper comic format is easier to write.

I would argue that even Mookie is a better artist than many of the people drawing for newspapers, its an incredibly low bar

The only newspaper comic I can think of that I would classify as having worse art than Mookie is Reply All.

Unless you're talking about political cartoonists in which case yeah I agree.

Mookie's art on its own is like a 12 year old's first forays into anime, which isnt good, but its not usually offensively bad on its own (except when he draws naked people). I think his astoundingly bad writing and taste in general makes his art look worse by association. If I saw some child drawing what he does I wouldnt think 'wow ugh'.

Meanwhile I just went to GoComics and found a treasure trove of absolute garbage that may be more consistent or "purposeful" than mookie's art but still is less pleasant to look at. Pretty much anything with a political slant is a given, but there's a lot of other newspaper comics that i dont know/think are political but are just so ugly to behold. I think its mostly boomer cartoons that got started before they took lead out of gasoline and have held on due to inertia.

Snout is a great protagonist. I love protagonists who constantly just cannot deal with, like, the whole situation, and just need some time to themselves.


Just making GBS threads in nature, thinking his thoughts.....

I really appreciate that mookie cant figure out how to really emote with snout's face at all, he always just looks vaguely concerned/confused. Also he really does look like hes hovering over the ground in a squat

He did roleplay and the other players hated his character, a proto Dominic Deegan. So they kicked him out and Mookie started a comic.
I think that's how it went anyway.

I guess DD really is just someone playing dungeons and dragons by themselves, huh?

I meant like deviantart/tumblr style not d&d but i can imagine he's probably too annoying for most roleplayers
