Re: EPIC CONCLUSION TIME (Webcomics Thread)

While the ending of the old comic was going down I was watching tweets from Scott K. and Kris Straub . Apparently Buckely's just been an outright asshole to them in the past for no reason which is why now they couldn't give a fuck about the guy. Do you have a link to that podcast? I tried once before but I think I found the wrong link.

There. Was engaging enough, although Kurtz sounds disturbingly like a young George Lucas.

Thank you, I can't wait to listen. After seeing their show I'm curious to hear what they have to say.

Re: EPIC CONCLUSION TIME (Webcomics Thread)

So, months later, it's time for a more permanent EPIC CONCLUSION! Today, Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire, Michael "Mookie" Terraciano's magnum opus comes to a close in the most pitiful way possible!

[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/WkxngJd.gif[/IMG]

So, let's sum up this ending. Dominic, lazy, unlikable self insert (WHAT A SURPRISE) magic asshole has just partaken in an "epic" battle where he tried to play the self sacrifice card for absolutely no reason whatsoever, got several of his friends and a GOD killed in the process and became a massive liability to everybody. Then, Celesto, the cool anti-hero swooped in, saved the day and pulled off what Dominic couldn't, dying in the process in the most stupid way possible...

[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/2AWyl5h.jpg[/IMG]
Bear in mind that this guy can fly and shoot explosive death bolts from his hands and there's no way this should have happened.

Dominic, who did absolutely fuck all of any use, gets to live, despite suffering injuries that he had no right to survive, despite being constantly described as a frail, physically weak specimen. He gets to get married. He gets to make speeches. He gets to have all the surviving characters cheerfully suck on his shrivelled up little dick. He gets a happy ending he doesn't deserve.

Celesto is not mentioned beyond a single panel after his death. Nobody mentions him in passing. Nobody mourns him. Nobody cares that he saved the world. Nobody cares because Mookie didn't care, because Celesto is not his beloved Dominic. Never mind that Celesto struggled against adversity and overcame disease and constant torture. Never mind that even the "heroes" were beating him down and locking him up just because his methods of saving the world weren't theirs. This is the guy who went through the journey of the hero and got absolutely nothing in return. Dominic witnessed this and doesn't even stop to mention; "Hey, that guy who totes sacrificed his life so I could be here? Yeah, thanks." during his grand closing speech.

He's had just under a month to wrap all of this up and he's just forgotten such a major plot point, it's appalling.

You might ask; "Why should I care? Bloody hell, Mandy, why the fuck do you care so much?" I shall give the same answer to the latter question as always; I'm attracted to shit like a big ol' flesh coloured fly. And DD, like CAD is the Crown Jewels constructed entirely of shit. Any promising ideas it has are cruelly shot in the head by inept writing. Any tension it builds is dissipated in the space of a few panels. It's dreadful to look at and dreadful to read. And the funniest thing is, like Buckley, Mookie's had this thing going for eleven years!

So, just like Buckley, let's have a retrospective! A "best" of, if you will! But unlike CAD, there will be a theme! See if you can spot it!

[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/FrNB7XS.gif[/IMG]
It begins subtly. The theme is there if you can just stop laughing at the absurdly childish art. I'll go deeper.

[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/Xh1TAwt.jpg[/IMG]
Okay, stop laughing. Seriously, the theme is more obvious here. Not convinced? Alright, DEEPER STILL.

[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/QCg7vON.gif[/IMG]
Nothing disturbing about this. Not at all.

[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/mychfVH.gif[/IMG]
This guy is a GOOD GUY.

Okay, I'll stop pussyfooting around and present you with Mookie's own "Loss". The equally as infamous "Jazz Hands".

[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/FaTE0iZ.gif[/IMG]

Wipe the sick from your lips! Yes, he tackled a rape plotline in his stupid fantasy comic and presented it as a heroic act, FINE. Yes, he introduced this flashback sequence during a magical rock concert. And yes, he also had the victim fall in love with her rapist later on because...

Stop being sick.

It's totally cool though, Mookie's completely into guys getting raped too.

[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/412A9Er.png[/IMG]

Seriously, isn't that just the funniest? Isn't it? Guys?

Anyway, Mookie's got himself a new artist and he's started work on a science fiction/superhero comic, both genres I love and he's writing a strong female lead, which I am all for trying to do myself. This surely can't go wrong.

[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/tAlEN3T.jpg[/IMG]

Oh. Yuck.

I've not even remotely scratched the surface. The misogyny is just one facet. Mookie makes Buckley look like pre-crazy Frank Miller. I should add that one of the few webcomic people he's on friendly terms with is Buckley. Quelle suprise!

Don't worry, this means you're relatively normal and haven't been corrupted as I have. I haven't even gone into the villains all being more likable, interesting and hardworking than the heroes, the way they're always beaten by asspull out-of-nowhere powers,  the heavy metal band called "Facebath", the slut shaming arc, the time Dominic got naked in front of a child and cracked a pun about being "clothed minded", THAT FUCKING CAT.

Short version: Justified rape.

Shorter version: Fuck.

Re: EPIC CONCLUSION TIME (Webcomics Thread)

Don't read webcomics so I'm a bit lost here, but I would say that anyone who draws and then publishes pictures of women with cut throats and people with there bowels all over the place probably doesn't do well at the family picnic.


I hope you like me and I fit in with your life.

Re: EPIC CONCLUSION TIME (Webcomics Thread)

It's kind of worse than that. He's got a major, major Madonna/whore complex going on. Evil women are sexualised to the point of outright wearing bondage gear. Good women are, more often than not, dressed in saintly robes. Neither are safe from Mookie's not so subtle dominancy thing, the good are literally always partnered off with a man to fawn over him constantly, no matter how "strong" they're presented initially. Bad women? Death. Gruesome, gruesome death, often with their throats cut and their titties prominently jutting out.

He's got a DeviantArt account for his model photography, which I shall not link for reasons of good taste, but you'll never guess how much of it is naked women cavorting in fake blood and rubbing it all over their knockers.

The sexuality issue, as I mentioned, is just one facet. How about the time Mookie decided to rip Terry Pratchett off and introduce a fantasy rock band to his story as a thinly veiled "take that" to his critics? I'll try and keep it truncated for reasons of sanity, but it's his most terrible plot arc.

The plot, in short is that Dominic's smug, irritating loser brother Greg decides to start a band. He teams up with three guys who he clearly has no faith in from the beginning and is quick to make snap judgements about them. They compromise and go for the current fashion which is a thinly veiled pop at 80's glam rock. He then proceeds to spend ages getting his hair done, whining about how shitty his bandmates are and getting kissed by men because "Ha ha, glam rock is totally gay right? (Also, I'm totally not homophobic, please don't hate meeeee...)" before they play their first gig and disaster strikes!

[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/tWkgIuy.jpg[/IMG]

Oh golly gosh! A bad review! Greg proceeds to break up with his bandmates because "YOU'RE HOLDING ME BACK, MAN." Then he gets angry and smashes a guitar and it's "Awesome". We know this because Mookie has a habit of having his characters saying things like "Yeah, that was totally badass!" This is probabably because he's totally incapable of actually drawing something "badass", therefore has to pretty much tell the reader "This is a badass thing."

Moving right along and cutting out pages and pages of whining, Greg teams up with two "TOTALLY ORIGINAL DUDES". And then they invent true, hard and heavy metal by experimenting like true individuals. It's fucking awful.

[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/iSfYX09.gif[/IMG]

Now they've got their sound, they need a band name! A totally metal band name, one that will strike fear into the hearts of parents all around the world! What is this name? Prepare yourselves.

[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/qwVzoKA.gif[/IMG]

FACEBATH.

Cutting the story even shorter because sod wasting any more time on this crap, they play a gig that's visually unengaging, Mookie failing to even try to capture music in a soundless medium, so he of course has a parade of talking heads wanking on about how "TOTALLY AWESOME" Greg's music is. A few people don't get it, but screw those squares, man, he's totally doing his own thing, fuck the haters.

[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/j7l1qiH.jpg[/IMG]

Yeah, fuck improving and fuck critics. Good on you Gregory/Mookie.

This anti-criticism thing bugs the hell out of me. Just yesterday, because of CAD being nothing but a sea of beige and Dominic Deegan being over, I decided to look up Andrew "Tom Preston" Dobson... He's gone mental. His DeviantArt page is now plastered with misappropriated quotes justifying how evil critics are and he's gone from drawing himself as an idealised, non-fat person to a little boy version of himself, to... A blue teddy bear.

Andrew Dobson is a whole other can of worms. A big ball of self-loathing and egotism you can't do anything but feel sorry for.

Well, he's kind of famous for it. I just couldn't be arsed to dig through the 3000 pages of Mookie's shit, just to look for all the times he's "sexily" killed women. If you mean you can't see my images... Er. Don't know why. And if it's because your eye slides right past those images and your brain is refusing to let you see them... I can't blame you, really I can't.

Also, shut up Filip, unless you've actually got something pertinent to add.

Re: EPIC CONCLUSION TIME (Webcomics Thread)

It's probably a little bit of my brain not wanting to see it and a lot a bit about how none of the things you've posted involved girls with their necks slit open.

Re: EPIC CONCLUSION TIME (Webcomics Thread)

Admit it, you want to see girls with their necks slit open. I won't do it. I'm not trawling his archives again. My blood pressure went through the roof for that Facebath shit. So, here's a google result. This is the tip of the iceberg. Probably drawn while Mookie was stroking the tip of his penis.

xK2T9.png

I refuse to dig any deeper than that regarding the violence towards women. The fourth panel really says it all. A formerly plain character who usually wore nothing but robes, somehow, through an extremely contrived series of events ends up dressed like a dominatrix? Of course, she totally deserves to get punched out by an evil jock and called a whore.

The first panel reminded me of Mookie's gay character. Fuck. This comic is a shit prism, the light goes in and different shades of brown come out.

2008.01.06.php

A character whose sole existence was to basically go "I fuck bums", have bad guys call him "fag" so you could tell they were bad guys and therefore wouldn't feel sad when he stabbed them to death. Mookie never realised how offensive his characterisation was. As far as he's concerned, he's represented a gay person in his comic. It never mattered that he did it well.

So, women, sexuality... What else? Oh, right race.

It's okay though, he's being mind controlled, so it's TOTALLY NOT RACIST, ALRIGHT?

Re: EPIC CONCLUSION TIME (Webcomics Thread)

I think I'm going to end up following his new comic, it's already full of "How Not To" advice. Seven pages in, aside from one ALRIGHT joke about a sentient plant, nothing of interest has happened beyond his heroine being childish and whiny and getting her superpowers with the least amount of effort or stress ever. Lady look through telescope. Lady super. Super lady. And they've not even defined what her power even is beyond looking stupid. I'm going to guess it's the power of pure bullshit-asspull-deus-ex-machina.

I worked out who her arch-enemy was purely from the cover, it's so obvious.

Re: EPIC CONCLUSION TIME (Webcomics Thread)

In another one of Buckley's "fantastic" pieces of timing, he's been concentrating on a multi-part war story about console brand based robots, all throughout the release of GTA V. He's finally gotten around to tackling the subject though! I wonder how he handles things?
