As endings go, this is one.

Like most of DD, it's somewhat lukewarm.

But, at least it's all wrapped up, right?

Of course you realize this is the perfect place to spin off on his hit, new comic strip series Mosely and Friends.

Well folks, we made it.

And horrible ending to the comic is horrible. I think we all expected bad but this is another level of terrible entirely.

I vote Yadumey as best member of this forum. Criticisms are classy and creative, and almost always seriously funny. Well played indeed sir.

See you all at his next comic, which you vehemently deny, but most of you will still read to keep your 'Hate-Ons' strong.



First, fuck you for nominating yadumey.

Second, no. I will not be reading anything else written by this man. He's a shitty writer. Why would I go to his new story to read more shit? Hell, I read this shit purely out of habit.

I'm sure a few people will read the first few strips, not find anything worth raging at, then go on with their lives. As they should.


Because fuck Dominic Deegan.

Not that I would particularly expect any of you to much care, but who are you betting they named the kid after? Because I'd wager they'd be naming them after somebody they met, and I would be amused to hear your theories.

I can't recall if they ever learned the truth about Brian / Rilian, but if they had, I wouldn't be surprised if they named the kid after him.

Also have to say it was an interesting choice on his part to remove the links option from the header and have it redirect to his new project.
The road goes ever on and on,
Down from the door, where it began,
Now far ahead the road has gone
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Meeting those who travel on the way,
Where many paths and errands meet,
And whither then, I cannot say.

You weren't always bad, but a lot of your comments were just too full of petulance. Yadumey tended to give a more 'Mystery Science Theater' kind of roasting. Usually calm, but still scathing and calling out the weak spots in the story writing and artistry. That and I never saw him calling for outright physical harm to the author for his work, which again, you did frequently.

The rage is strong in you, unfortunately that doesn't make you very funny or entertaining. More a necessary evil.

Yeah, DD was kind of magical in its fusion of miserable art and miserable storytelling. And even beyond that, the initial appeal of the strip was that Deegan was a cynical bastard. The original crop of fans were all cynical bastards, too, just waiting to transform into this beautiful hatedom as the comic devolved. Michael inadvertently caught the attention of the exact kind of people who were psychologically designed to hate the comic he ended up writing. It was a perfect storm, a sweet spot of awful.

I'm sure the new comic will be a wad of lame, but it'll never stack up against the supreme failure that we watched shrivel and die over the last decade.

You guys kept me going through Dominic Deegan. Thanks for the entertainment. I'll check the forums for his new web comic in a few months just to see if you guys did, despite it all, migrate there.

My one big regret of this week though is we didn't see any Dwarves at that nations of the world meeting...Actually I can name a lot more regrets than that. Dominic surviving, having a kid, Celesto not showing up or being mourned...well maybe they mourned him off screen like we later learned they did Bulgak, but that's still a cop out.

I'm actually somewhat surprised the comic ended without even the slightest hint of remorse or reflection upon Celesto's demise, particularly since Celesto basically bailed Dominic out and sacrificed himself for Dominic's sake for grins and giggles or some shit.

This really reinforces what will be Dominic Deegan's enduring legacy for me personally, which is how ludicrously superficial morality in this universe was. Are you a good person? If so, you're entitled to a good ending. Have the slightest flaw, indulge in the slightest sin, have the slightest shade of grey in one's character? FUCK YOU, YOU SHOULD DIE YOU ASSHOLE. In the Deegan-verse, characters are pre-assigned value or merit as "good" and "evil" and that assignment determines whether the character's actions will be justified and whether the character's ending will be 'happy.' Are you a 'good person?' (Because Mookie says you are, regardless of your actual behavior or decisions in life?) Congratulations, you can justify rape. Are you a bad person? Enjoy your first-class ticket to hell!

I have a pretty strong inkling that Mookie was bullied as a kid, and this is his way of expressing vengeance against the real world's 'inequities.' Mookie probably views himself as every bit as pure and kind-hearted and infallible as he's written Dominic, and he probably has justifications already prepared for nearly any criticism that could possibly be brought against his precious 'integrity.'

Of course, the irony is, he owes his success in the 'real world' to this very hypocritical inconsistency that's elevated himself into middling internet 'fame' despite his mediocre art and horrendous writing. Though I suppose many of us also just enjoy a front-row view of a trainwreck.

I've been reading DD since pretty close to the beginning, and it's been a pretty good ride. I don't know if Mookie will ever read this, but thanks Mookie for the fun comic. I've enjoyed reading it all this time.

I know most of you hate the comic, or at least say you do but stick around for years anyway, but it's great (somewhat) knowing you all. I don't yet if I'll read Mookie's new comic or not, it largely depends if it has a forum community or not (that's important to me),

So yeah, thanks for the good times.

Ladies and Gentlemen, it was an honor to serve with you.

And yes, even in the end, something like having half of your body ripped out of you wasn't enough to kill. Not when a sappy, unrealistic ending that features fixing all the negatives of the leads can be done. SUre, Dom and Luna could have adopted, but knowing the track record, she got pregnant. Fuck this comic. Fuck Mookie. And a big fuck you up the fucking ass to all the people that paid money for this trash.

To be more specific, he removed the link to his Links page--which still exists, and which I still use to hit up a bunch of my morning comics from here at work. Even if a bunch of those links are dead now.

Down from the door, where it began,
