    Maybe he was so shocked he dropped it? I know in reality its probably because he couldnt draw it right from that angle or something. Lets add this to the missing leg compilation from the original comic. I seem to recall that was a thing where mookie would just NOT draw some parts of the character depending on how they were framed.

    Update

    Not sure who is driving this ship, but he REALLY needs to learn how to park.

    That looks like a crash landing to me. If so, I'll be surprised that Mookie's art actually conveyed something without words. If not, then I dunno.

    Ok so now im on board with how stupid this is. Snout literally ran off at random with no clue where he was going or how to get there. And after running for who knows how long, hours, days? He manages to cross paths with another ink ship that just happens to crash in front of him. So very, very dumb.

    I want to give him the benefit of doubt and assume the ship was following him and it wasn't just another pure coincidence, although if that's the case it would have been nice to see it in the background once in a while during the pointless travel updates.

    And yes, obviously it crashed, but why and how?

    In the first panel it's way above Snout almost reaching him, in the second panel it passes him almost on his height, the on the last it's back to being higher crashing down without any indication to why.
    For now I'll just assume the reason is "wild zone", but there is a limit to that excuse and it doesn't explain what happened to the location of the ship between panels.

    Wow. How dramatic.
    He had to choose between going to that town now or after checking the wreck.

    I mean, hesitating because weird airship wrecks are dangerous would make sense, but acting like it's either checking the „landing”-zone or following that sign?

    Not so much.
    The friggin town will still be there in ten minutes.
    Its not going to grow legs and leave.
    Otherwise there wouldn't be a sign pointing in its direction.

    Signs usually imply non-motile places.
    Or are designed to deal with any spontanous mobility of whatever they point at.
    Because otherwise they're pointless.

    Update

    Not sure what the great dilemma is.

    On one side, you have a town that has nothing to do with any of the goals.
    Probably a good place to get information, but it's not like the quest is time sensitive and the town is not running away.

    On the other side, the exact same ship that Snout was looking for, it crash landed so someone might need help, and if he doesn't look at it now it might be too late.

    And it's not like it's a choice Snout can't undo.
    It's not like some computer games where the way to the town will be blocked if he goes to the ship, and the ship isn't that far away.

    Yeah basically this. Stupidest thing ever. "Omg, should I ignore the crash landing clue that could easily give me the info I need in favor of going to a random town where I might find a map that might tell me where to go on the other side of the world to do research? OR SHOULD I GO TO THE FREAKING CRASH LANDED SHIP FIRST THEN WORK FROM THERE?!?!?!" What a hard decision to make. Even if the town really WOULD get up and vanish (Hey, its the wild edge, we dont know how things work here) there is an actual lead that once again fell into his lap and he considered ignoring it in some odd sunk cost fallacy thought process. "Well gee, I already was heading this way, it would be a shame to stop walking that way now."

    The reason why the town is important to him in spite of having nothing to do with the quest is that he is a mongrelfolk, and we haven't yet seen him interact with any of his kind. Plus, Blork immediately fell in love with that other female mongrelfolk, so there must be some serious chemistry going on when two met.

    The wild edge does have mountains that appear and disappear over the course of a few hours because they actually are giant subterranean turtles that surface to shed their shell, but the sign should mean that it points at something permanent. However, it is true that Bork used signs in a liberal and impromptu way, so mongreltown could very well just be two mongrelfolks travelling around, calling the areas whre they nap mongreltown.

    Probably more thought than the author, but whatever. I recently reread the story of the blond cutthroat working in the Wild Edge, and it was surprisingly enjoyable.

    He's probably just confused because in the previous strips the ship crashed in the same direction as mongreltown.

    At least I think.

    Now that you mention it, it's even worse.
    Snout was next to the sign, started running toward the town, the ship crashed in that direction, then he is reappeared right next to the same sign (if it's a different one it didn't exist a second ago) and then had to run to the opposite direction to the ship.

    I missed out on a lot of snarling while the site was down. I did have specific comments for each page, but now I can't be bothered to remember them. Instead, I'll actually give Mookie a compliment, instead. His art may still be bad, but mad props on the realistic woman figure. Gotta give credit where credit is due.

    In the past few weeks when the forum was down, I noticed something that should have been obvious to me without it: I have absolutely no interest in the comic without the snark thread.
    I had no interest and no curiosity to see what happens next.
    I completely forgot about it as a daily routine until the forums came back.

    So anyway...
    The only comment I can make is on how brave it is of Mookie as a writer to select a deaf character, forcing him to change his usual style of walls of text, to LITERAL walls of text made of ink.

    Pretty much the same here. I still kept up with it out of sheer habit, but it felt like there was no real point.

    Regarding the last two updates, it's no wonder Mookie loves the wild zone so much.
    As a joke it would have worked, but when the entire plot driving mechanism is coincidences, the plot emphasizes it and yet no character seems to find it odd in any way?
    This is just getting tiring.

    Also, as funny as the sign coming back was, did it really need two pages for that gag?

    Is...is that the same cliff from the previous page? If so, that is remarkably dumb. Like, how did they not see it before? Why did the sign say it had no idea how to get to the town that you can literally fall to reach? Is the town magically shielded from view like Wakanda, and getting hit with the sign revealed it? Is Mookie just a bad artist and drew the same cliff twice instead of making a new cliff design to avoid confusion? The world may never know.

    Maybe the city's supposed to be hidden from their position.
    It's build into the cliff they're standing on.
    And all those trees might help hiding the buildings too.
    Maybe not perfectly, but enough to fool someone not knowing it's there.

    Compared to his prvious work he has made some solid progress regarding art, I found the Ink witch to be well drawn enough to be distinct from other characters, and I appreciate her realistic body shape.

    Good work Mookie.

    Well, I hope we get an explanation because mongrelfolk where supposed to be extremly rare, there has been zero hints that they have a massive city, and our protagonist did'nt even know the city existed despite being mongrelfolk.

    Well, there was a massive timeskip wasn't there?
    Also, judging by the background population there's more than just mongrelfolk in this city hidden village.

    Last update, I was about to ask what do they even want to do in this town?
    It's not in the list of library locations, and while Snout alone needs directions to get to the libraries on the list, the situation changes when the witch is with him.

    Still, I understand his curiosity, and I'm willing to ignore the fact that at least for the witch the task is more urgent since she owes him at least that.
    But then came this update.
    Don't get me wrong, from a character perspective it makes sense, you reach a town, might as well check if they have the book.
    But from a writer's perspective? If this leads them anywhere, it will be weird. After all, why bother making a list of locations if you're going to ditch it so fast?

    My theory? Mookie is just using every excuse possible to keep them in the wild zone, where he doesn't need to worry about stuff like connecting events between plot points.
    Considering the chapter's name is "Mongreltown", even if my theory is wrong it looks like we're going to stay here for awhile.

    I also thought that if I wanted to parody Mookie's style, that's exactly what I would have done: Make a story, point to the flaw of lack of ability/will to connect events properly with the worst excuse possible, and then repeat it over and over again ad nauseam, until EVERYONE gets that it's a joke and that's not the proper way to write.
    In a way, Mookie is writing a parody about his own work while being completely unaware that it's a parody.

    That store sign doesn't exactly fill me with confidence…

    But with the way this is going they will find what they seek.
    Probably because of a sudden book geyser.

    I want to say it's racist for all mongrelfolk to, apparently, have literacy issues, but I'm just not sure who it'd be racist against. Can a writer be racist against their own fictional race?
