''[[http://www.dominic-deegan.com Dominic Deegan: Oracle For Hire]]'' is a {{webcomic|s}} started by Michael "Mookie" Terracciano in 2002. It follows the life and times of Dominic Deegan, a {{messianic|Archetype}} yet pessimistic seer who travels about with Spark, his [[TalkingAnimal feline comic relief]], and assorted companions. Originally a lighter strip based on puns and wordplay, CerebusSyndrome ensued, arguably starting with the "Visions of Doom" arc, but certainly by "Storm of Souls".

On May 24, 2013, the comic ended at [[WebcomicsLongRunners three thousand comics.]] A set of colored epilogue prints, some with art by Garth Graham (Mookie's partner on his following webcomic ''Webcomic/StarPower''), were later published. A half-hour documentary about the making of the comic, ''See For Yourself: The Dominic Deegan Story'', was released by [=TriFocal=] Productions.

* BiTheWay: Taz [=MaDara=], apparently. His first meeting with Gregory Deegan involves him planting a huge [[HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw man-kiss]] on the youngest Deegan boy, much to his confusion.

* BigDamnKiss: At least once, we have been treated by a single giant colored panel o Dominic and Luna kissing. I think that qualifies.

* {{Irony}}: Chance Masters is first shown as a wealthy arrogent bully who gives special attention to another boy with a ponytail. It turns out [[spoiler: "Ponytail" used to bully Chance because Chance sucked at sports and he ("Ponytail") thought that all rich kids were jerks because that's how his "action books" always portrayed them (apparently ''Richie Rich'' doesn't exist in Callan)]].

** Though the only sufferer seen in-comic is a fantasy-counterpart rugby player, so insurance clearly isn't all that big of a deal. Nor is regular medical treatment (it's implied that white magic is very expensive and usually unavailable to commoners in any case).

Nor is regular medical treatment (it's implied that white magic is very expensive and usually unavailable to commoners in any case). That said, when he is grievously injured, he spends the entire rest of the comic's run recovering from the injuries while any other character could've been healed in seconds by white magic.

Added DiffLines:

** A subversion: magical power naturally cycles from race to race in the setting, and every transfer seen or described on-screen has collapsed the previous empowered civilization. Though the fact that the survivors believe that only their own hubris could have brought them down, despite every other civilization in history as a counter-argument, may qualify as self-destructive pride in itself.

* AtTheCrossroads: Whenever someone reaches a metaphorical crossroads, Deegan sees everything in "gray" until that someone makes a decision.

* {{Homage}}: It appears that the author got a lot of inspiration from ''TheSlayers'' anime, including several characters who start powering up a SphereOfDestruction [[spoiler: illusion]], not to mention the {{animesque}} character design and FantasyKitchenSink setting (although the person who pointed this out noted that [[GagBoobs Naga's]] breasts would hardly stand out in DD).

* DevilsJobOffer:
** When The Infernomancer (aka 'TIM') is sent to Hell by the white magic of Gregory Deegan, he strikes a (new) deal with Karnak to return to the land of the living. Actually, Karnak was bluffing, but TIM didn't know that...
** Lord Siegfried Gunther Aern Damaske von Callan (or Siggy) dies killing the Royal Seer and immediately becomes the lieutenant of Karnak, who had moments before killed every high level demon in Hell, so high-quality damned souls were in high demand.
