Comma or no comma?
Does the sentence 'The dragon looks like a dog without its wings' need a comma? Also, does my question title need a comma?
As it's written, your sentence, "The dragon looks like a dog without its wings," does not need (nor should it have) a comma. However, the sentence doesn't quite make sense because having "without its wings" next to "dog" makes it appear that it is describing/modifying "dog," which doesn't really make sense. I think you really mean "Without its wings, the drgon looks like a dog." Written this way, the sentence does need the comma.
As for your question needing a comma, it's really a matter of preference. I don't know of any definitive rule that dictates one way or the other.
