Hey, all you necrofowliacs! Welcome to the next installment of this “Dead Duck” episode, “THE DOGMA OF DEAD DUCK!” Here’s your trivia fix:
- In that third panel, I put all the emotion I could into Dead Duck’s face. It’s like seeing an animal suffering, but they don’t get it. They don’t know why they’re hurt, and they don’t know how to stop it, and you’re powerless to make a difference. I’ve experienced that with my old dog, Princess, as she died in my arms. I suppose I channeled that somehow in drawing this page.
- I know the villain’s dialogue is hammy, but as someone who’s performed on stage, I can really chew on words like this. You hate him, but as an actor, you love to play terrible characters with pulpy dialogue like this.
- I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get choked up a little drawing Zombie Chick in her “Good bye, Ducky” panel. I knew what was coming next, obviously, but man, did that get to me.
- And now, the culmination of this story. The part I savor the most in tales like this, where the son of a bitch gets what’s coming.
See you on the next page!
