I'm really enjoying them Mr. A, please keep 'em coming!
As I'm looking at your duck character I'm remembering how you and I share such an admiration for that great among greats in the comic world: Mr. Carl Barks.
Carl Barks and Walt Kelly are perhaps the best cartoonists to ever draw breath. I can look at Barks and Kelly all day.
Lots of fun. The gags work. Quite an art form figuring out the sequence on a gag. The top one pays off pretty well when the Duck straightens out and recovers at the sight of cash. The healing power of cash. A universal bit of communication.
I just noticed a pretty rank amateur typo on strip number 6. Oh, the shame! I need to fix it.
Something about the duck the triggered a National Lampoon Magazine set of neurons in my brain. I did a cursory web search and discovered I was remembering Dirty Duck, a parody of Crazy Kat in said magazine in the 70's. Says something about age and the power of water fowl. http://lambiek.net/artists/l/london_bobby.htm
Ah yes. Bobby London. I believe he took over Popeye for awhile. Or they tried getting a Popeye revival going. Very talented guy.
Cool! I have never seen this strip before. Mr. London must be Herriman reincarnated. 'Dirty Duck' is almost line-for-line perfect. Thank you for posting this.
