A Stupid Little Duck
This was the first installment of my weekly comic strip, You Stupid Little Duck, which ran for a brief 26 weeks in the Seattle Weekly during the late 90's, before a reader's poll cut quick its short life. I've always considered it the crystallization of what I thought a comic should be; the gleeful embrace of life's unpleasant truths, told in a manner of pure formality, sort of an underground comix interpretation of Nancy or Otto Soglow's The Little King. Created as a black and white strip, I've added color here, happy to find the stark openness of its design so welcoming to such colorization.
