Not really, no. See, this just shows us that it all didn't have to be crap and garbage. All our complaints of him choosing not to improve, but still charge money for his books and merchandise, are all validated by how good David is as a villain.

That was fun.

Definitely one of the best DD strips, at least in my mind. Excellent reversal. It'd be hilarious if David actually won and the strip ended with him getting a happily ever after.

Oh come on, that is BS and you know it. An artists doesn't start making masterpieces, a musician doesn't start with a symphony (Excluding Mozart), so why should a writer start awesome?

We grow and learn as we do something for a long period of time, anybody who has ever done something like writing or art has seen that in themselves. Hell, I can barely read my old works without wanting to punch myself in the face for how bad they were. We learn and adapt with time. Just because the majority of this site has taken their dislike of Mookie to brobdingnagian states, you still need to make sense with your complaints.

I don't mind when you guys have legitimate complaints, but lately the comic has been good, and all you guys can pull out is 'HE DIDN'T DO THIS FOR THE LAST TEN YEARS SO HE STILL SHOULD DIE.' Honestly now, that doesn't look childish to you?

We've watched him make decent art choices, seen sketches of random things that are draw with far more care than his shitty comic strip, and seen examples of the wonderful writing he could do if he just sat the fuck down and took his time enough times to know that he can produce quality work. He just doesn't want to. In fact, there was one time he said that changing his art "didn't feel right" and he stopped, even though it was a vast improvement over his previous artwork. He literally stopped improving because it didn't feel like Dominic Deegan.

Who the fuck does that? Who purposely stagnates their growth? Michael. Michael does.

It's less "he should have been awesome at the start" and more "he was steadily being pretty good from the beginning and then he kept shitting on a piece of paper can called it plot so this recent development is in the right direction" to me really.

Please let me know when I'm calling for his death. You're assuming I've got much more malice than I actually have.
