    If Garth is contracted by Mookie, then odds are he could stick with Star Power till the end, since he's probably a full-time freelancer. The question is whether Star Power can make enough for Mookie to keep supporting Garth. From what I understand, DD was barely enough to keep Mookie afloat, unless he intends to get more income from his supposed DD spin-off.

    When Star Power was announced I guessed Garth would be being paid a percentage rather than contract rates, but given the amount of time he's spent on the comic already that might be incorrect. I can't see how DD and Star Power can support a fair artists hourly commission rate in the long term however.

    If it's one of those semi-formal profit share fifty-fifty deals, then Mookie has to put in an equal amount of effort on the writing as Garth is on the art otherwise no matter how nice a guy he is things will go sour rather quickly.

    Holy crap. I totally forgot about this series until I saw this thread. I attempted to get through it and even finished Maltak but I got so burnt out and depressed that I didn't go on from there.

    Although this thread looks dope, I might just keep going to get in on the fun. Someone please talk me into it.

    The few years you've missed get really stupid, but the good news is nothing important happened so it's not as if you missed much. There are only six months left so if you want to join in now it's not like you'll be trapped here forever.

    Sneaky Gate

    So, nothing important either. Basically, it's Maltak all over again - heroes are slowly building an army of everyone who ever appeared in the comic ever, and sometime in a few months they'll have a huge battle that turns out to be irrelevant because one single guy defeats the big bad boss in a single strip.

    yeah, but next year Mookie is starting his next project and as he woun't have time for two comics he is wrapping DD up around may.

    Cause you know, it takes him about 6 hours to draw one DD strip.

    No, they usually end when the creators stop giving a ****. However, Mookie is a very special breed of webcartoonist.

    Is it just me or are the first few panels actually decent character development? It's sort of out of the blue for Donovan, but we haven't seen him much when he's alone, so I think it mostly works.

    ...I think you're confused - that's Miranda in those panels.

    All I can really think about is how pathetically easy it would have been to off Miranda right then and there.

    Just poke and there goes the headsplosion spell.

    Well, that or instead of being super obvious about his approach . . . The King just kind of sneaks on over to their places of residence and sucker punches them with magic.

    I mean, he knows exactly who's arranged against him and the idiots don't even have the foresight of even trying to hide while they prep their plan. They're just chilling at home. King just needs to call up Callan's equivalent of the IRS or the Postal Service and he has them.

    But of course it was Donovan.
    We complained that only women characters cry, so we got this as a response.
    Never mind that it's not his character trait, never mind that he is known for making silly puns and jokes even when stressed, we need to see a man cry and we are going to get one!

    That still doesn't make Luna a strong character, most of all because SHE DIDN'T DO ANYTHING, but we see a man cry, so now everything is okay.

    You know, I think The Maestro is my favorite character, or at least my favorite character when operating within Mookie's canon and intended interpretations (in other words, edging out Punchy and Warlord Moustache). Of all of Mookie's terrible puns, his name is one of the few that actually gets a smile out of me now and again, and I like how he's just a total prick to everyone around him. Tell me that's not a straight up trollface in panel 8. Problem, Miranda? (Plus, the idea of a lightning mage who conducts storms and symphonies alike is actually kind of cool on its face, though knowing Mookie, he probably stole it from somewhere.)

    That, and he hasn't had enough screen time to be horribly ruined. He doesn't have much of a personality, and that means he hasn't undergone horrific character assassination and/or decay yet.

    Yes, I actually like The Maestro, at least by the standards of DD characters.

    I am willing to bet Mookie heard a bad pun on "lightning conductor" and decided to base an entire character around it.

    This is a small detail but the exclamation mark in the dragon panel is badly placed. It's just far enough from either of them to make it hard to decide who makes it. I guess it's the dragon's elbow that's surprised?

    I think that's actually not supposed to be an exclamation mark - rather it's (supposedly) blood dripping from said elbow to the ground. There's a similar one right under the left half of the "dragon"'s snout.

    Well Mookie thank you for linking to this again. That is honest to god my least favourite of your comics, artistically at least. I find it hard to even put my finger on what it is about your lounging dragon that looks so completely wrong. I think it's just everything about his come hither pose and anatomy and aaaaaah!!!


    Edit: Oh hey the dragon has human arms and hands well that's a part of it I hadn't pinned down as being awful before that I can now file away.

    That's not really a dragon. Never was now that I was just forced to remember it's first appearance.

    It's just a lizardman suffering from an acute case of gigantism.

    I hate Luna. Really, seriously, dangerously, tie-her-up-with-duct-tape-and-shove-her-into-the-boot-of-my-car-with-a-dozen-angry-weasels despise her.

    She has one function to help save her husband - go find a dragon and ask it to help out. That was a week ago. A week that she spent crying and then remembered, actually, I have no idea how to do it.

    I mean, really.....? "My mother-in-law is an Archmage, my best friend is a powerful wizard with ties to the werewolves who are reknown for their Divination magic and his girlfriend is a Seeress and all of his friends are students of Divination Magic under the world's most powerful Seer I REALLY OUGHT TO HAVE MENTIONED THIS TO SOMEONE ANYONE WELL OVER A WEEK AGO"

    Great, we have another all-powerful being biting the dust so that our heroes don't have to get their hands dirty. Killing off all-powerful beings doesn't create tension if the weakling heroes are somehow immune to the danger!

    As long as we're talking about such wild flights of fancy, if only there had been some way that she could have checked to see if not telling the Luanian priests that they were about to be overrun by zombies could have possibly had some negative consequences or something. If only such exotic powers, an entire branch of magic whose sole purpose is information, existed.

    Indeed, if only there was a spell Luna knew that sought out people to deliver simple messages, and you had some kind of feedback to if people got the message.
