Because there was no more Dominic Deegan.

Of course, there's this comic now, undermining even that.

Nuns with Guns posted:

Besides Mookie himself, honestly he probably has more people who hate-read it than any genuine fans at this point. Dominic Deegan had a small window of time where it was relevant and popular to get promoted by other big webcomics like VG Cats or Ctrl+Alt+Del and get an easter egg namedrop in Girl Genius. Nobody cares or remembers much about it now. Still, Mookie's in that rare and precious position now where he can do whatever he wants and be happy, so this is what he does with his time.

Also, the creator of VGCats is doing porn now, too!

For two hundred years, you have been asking: Who is Dominic Deegan? This is Dominic Deegan speaking. I am the man who loves his wife.

Men do not live by the mind, you say? The mind is impotent, you say? I have withdrawn those whose minds aren't to the astral plane. Then I told them to stop being so clothes-minded.

Sweep aside those hatred-eaten mystics. They only end up turning into spaghetti and meatballs.

Man cannot survive except by gaining knowledge, and saying "gently caress you, see the truth" is his only means to gain it.

A process of reason is a process of constant choice in answer to the question: True or False?—Right or Wrong? These dichotomies are false. All that a man need know is whether a thing is Deegan or Not-Deegan.

Are you beginning to see who is Dominic Deegan? I am the man who has earned the thing you did not fight for: I do not have to be in this lovely comic anymore.

If there are degrees of evil, it is hard to say who is the more contemptible: the Deegan who assumes the right to force the mind of others or the Non-Deegan who grants to others the right to force his mind.

To a savage, the world is a place of unintelligible miracles where anything is possible. I am a loving wizard, so that is how objective reality is. I suppose we are all savages, then.

I swear—by my life and my love of it—that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine. Unless I oracle myself to death and go missing for 200 years.

But what're the odds of that?

Snout's problem isn't that he's deaf, it's that he's incredibly stupid.

I was about to make some joke about being dear and dumb, and then I remembered that dumb as a general insult came about because of the mistreatment of people with disabilities and then I made myself generally sad and annoyed at myself for thinking of that in the first place.

Basically, I'm annoyed at Mookie for reminding me that I'm pond scum.

I still can’t get over how he decided he needed to compile a list of sci fi racial slurs when talking about the different alien races.

If you want an example of good (and by good, I mean believable/understandable) fictional slurs, you could see Disco Elysium, where I genuinely had the thought process at one point: 'Why did that person call my partner coinslot - ooooooof'

Heliotrope posted:

The existence of fictional slurs in a work I can see, although you know...handle with care and all. It's the way he just throws up a page of lore that "And here's all the racial slurs and why people use it!" in the style of the other lore pages that just talk about the races that weirds me out. Maybe I'm not explaining well, but it sounds like Disco Elysium has it come up in the game as part of the dialogue and not a giant list someone hands you? It's one of those games I've been meaning to get around to playing some day. That seems a better way of handling it then what Mookie did.

Fair enough. Sorry, I forgot to explain that your partner is ethnically from not-Korea (though both he and his parents were born and raised in the setting of the game).

I know! The lead up actually had me starting to be able to read the panels properly instead of my eyes just sliding off them (despite the utterly terrible designs for the elves which REALLY makes me think Mookie had something to do with it). Hell, the page with where Danica and questions and you see the two different answers was... Well, it had potential.

And then once again, it had to snatch defeat right from the jaws of victory. Mookie really is a master class in someone who... Doesn't get stories?

Hell, I reckon even I could come up with a better story. And I could think of no greater insult to a writer than that.

I'll laugh at Mookie's cringey awfulness as much as the next guy but does this thread really need to be spending pages and pages dissecting every single shred of his personal life that's ever been posted anywhere on the internet? 99% of the recent posts have been about Star Power or Mookie as a human being instead of the actual comic he's doing right now.

Well, I'd say Star Power is fair game since the Adventures of Snout is fairly lack-luster in updates.

What do people who haven't read the comic before think so far?

I mean... I've never liked anime aesthetics (still find it extremely grating to this day), but this is so... BADLY drawn that I cannot look at it without feeling a combination of infuriation and embarrassment that I can barely stand to read it.

I think the greatest insult that I could use against this comic is that I could draw better than this. And that is no small thing!

Even that surreal summary is much more compelling than the actual comic! If things kept repeating in ways that felt like reality was breaking down, if the story looped in on itself in ways that imply some kind of literary structure or approach, that would be something.

Yeah, it makes it sound like David Lynch does Rashomon.

The idea of a story being about a person dealing with a protagonist/antagonist actually going ahead with their legendary story and them dealing with it can be good, see Big Trouble in Little China.

This ain't Big Trouble in Little China.
