For the month of September, we'll follow the exploits of Emperor Constantine and his campaign to become the sole Caesar of Rome. The only thing standing in his way? The spirit of the Celestial.

This storyline will have two firsts for this webcomic. First, we'll be telling the story from the point of view of the Bad Guy, which has proved a lot of fun to write.

Second, this will be the first main character so far who's 4K spirit is a hindrance rather than a boon. Constantine and Celestial are almost as different as night and day, so it should be a real bumpy ride.

Not a big fan of the art at all. Lines are clunky and the coloring looks borderline MS Paint. Sorry but I kind of expected better. Especially if this is the same as the published comic of the same name.

Wonderful, I suppose it was only a matter of time before DD bred its own fair share of inarticulate uneducated trolls…

I'm not even sure what you mean by “clunky” lines? If you're referring to the expressive strokes that give mass and texture to obviously well studied anatomy, then you're quite right. Of course, they don't hold a candle to the perfectly monotonous and sterile 4px lines of your beloved Manga…

Furthermore, if you can accurately emulate both Japanese watercolors as well as pay homage to the classic 4-color print comics of the 70's using only MS Paint, a lot of us wasted quite a bit of money on “professional” graphic programs.

yeah, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I gotta say, I don't see what you're talking about either. Production-wise, I think this is one of the most professionally done comics on DD.

Sorry you didn't like the art, ccs. But thanks for stopping by!

This reminds me…I need to update my To-Do List…


1. Look into this “Photoshop” program all the kids are talking about. Just because MSPaint is free doesn't mean it's the best tool for the job! Don't be a miser.

2. Stop inking with feet. Use hands from now on.
