Arudak Done Differently

By Mookie | October 12, 2023 | 0 Comments

I’ve written before about how my original plans for The Legacy of Dominic Deegan changed after the effects of the pandemic, but there were some other original plans that didn’t go the way I thought they would, namely my return to working on solo comics the way I used to. One of the things I … Continue reading “Arudak Done Differently”

The Carolina Reaper

By Mookie | October 10, 2023 | 0 Comments

I ate a Carolina Reaper pepper yesterday. Raw. It was, without a doubt, one of the dumbest decisions I’ve ever made and I did it out of love for one of my best friends. My pal Jesse loves hot sauces and has introduced me to some genuinely tasty ones that I keep stocked in my … Continue reading “The Carolina Reaper”

Halloween Music

By Mookie | October 5, 2023 | 0 Comments

Music plays a huge role in our household and Halloween a top-tier holiday for our family, so it stands to reason that I’d search for music appropriate for the spooky season. The only problem with that is that it’s not a huge industry or tradition like Christmas music, so pickings can be thin… or in … Continue reading “Halloween Music”

Nearing the End, Sort Of

By Mookie | October 3, 2023 | 0 Comments

I’ve mentioned this in a previous blog, but as we get closer to the end of this storyline I feel it bears repeating: The conclusion of this storyline will be the end of Snout’s time as the main character of The Legacy of Dominic Deegan. When his story concludes, the comic will be switching formats. … Continue reading “Nearing the End, Sort Of”

Mortal Kombat and Me

By Mookie | September 28, 2023 | 0 Comments

I’ve been a longtime fan of the Mortal Kombat series of games, and the latest one that was just released last week is absolutely stellar. While I could spend this blog gushing about all the cool, clever, and gory features about it, I want to instead share my favorite Mortal Kombat memory, which involves me … Continue reading “Mortal Kombat and Me”

Snout and Dominic

By Mookie | September 26, 2023 | 0 Comments

In yesterday’s comic, Snout sees Dominic for the first time. It is, in my opinion, a milestone moment in The Legacy. It’s also one that I swore would never actually happen, but here we are. When I started The Legacy of Dominic Deegan I wanted to have as clean a break from the Oracle for … Continue reading “Snout and Dominic”

Dancing in September

By Mookie | September 21, 2023 | 0 Comments

I love the song “September” by Earth, Wind & Fire. Like, I go nuts for it. If I’m at a party where there’s a dance floor I’m dancing to this song. If there’s no dance floor I’m making one. I stop conversations to listen to this song when it comes on. Some folks begin celebrating … Continue reading “Dancing in September”

The Comeback Kitty

By Mookie | September 19, 2023 | 0 Comments

Around this time last week we thought our time with our beloved cat, Scamp, was coming to an end. We were prepared to have him euthanized and were ready to say goodbye. I am happy to say that neither of those things turned out to be necessary. Scamp’s recovery has continued on its upward slope … Continue reading “The Comeback Kitty”

The Possible Road to Recovery

By Mookie | September 14, 2023 | 0 Comments

If I thought my weekend was an emotional rollercoaster, it was nothing compared to my last two days. On Tuesday it seemed like our cat’s health had hit rock bottom. He continued to be unresponsive to the treatments for his ailments and he’d lost so much weight from not eating for days on end that … Continue reading “The Possible Road to Recovery”

My Weekend of Euphoric Highs and Crushing Lows

By Mookie | September 12, 2023 | 0 Comments

My weekend was a rollercoaster of emotions, but let’s begin with the euphoric high. This past weekend one of my best friends threw a surprise twentieth anniversary party for his wife. He pulled out all the stops, called in every favor, employed every guilt trip, to get as many people to attend as possible. Friends … Continue reading “My Weekend of Euphoric Highs and Crushing Lows”
