A long time ago back in 2002 there was a community comic called “Duck and Quail” that featured the two Drunk Duck site mascots. It was shortlived unfortunately as the site soon after totally crashed and burned, and after it was resurrected the community comic never got restarted.

http://www.drunkduck.com/Duck_and_Quail/

Now as a curiosity i have begun to repost those few strips that WAS made but that got me thinking. Wouldn't it be fun to restart the comic with new submissions from all the new people on the site?

What do ya say? Anyone up for doing some Duck and Quail comics?

Yeah, I'm interested in resurrecting this comic! Don't know what I'd do though… I'll have to think of some really bad bird related puns…
of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most.

Great, hopefully we can get some new fun stripts out of this!

Also i don't think we need to make overly intelligent jokes but rather keep it silly and just goof around. If someone wants to create a storyline go for it, or there could just be single strips about whatever comes to mind.

Yeah I have a story arc of strips in mind, started already. gag stuff isn't my weapon of choice so it's not so easy.

Great!
You can all make any kind of format you like. It doesn't have to be confined to a 3-4 panel setup, anything goes. Just keep it silly and have fun with it! :]

Whenever you got a page or strip ready, PQ me it and i will upload it to the comic.

I'll do a strip or three.

Hope you won't mind if I use original sprites. (I do a detailed job with my sprites so…maybe not…)

I'll be posting the new comics very shortly.

Everyone is still welcome to make some Duck and Quail comic so if you'd like to join the fun please do. Draw something funny/strange/lame and send it to me. Do it! :)

Is this still going? I have an idea for a series of three/four panel gag strips that work togther to tell of Duck's quest/road trip to find the Quail, which becomes an epic battle for the soul of the Duck.  I have an artist who can do some of them. Are you interested, and where do I send them?

oh yes! Everyone is welcome to join in. I haven't gotten any submissions in a while so it would be great if you continued it. ( and your story idea sounds incredible! :) )
 
You can send me links to the comics via PQ or e-mail me the files to warpedup@hotmail.com

I've drawn a few pages of Gunwallaces Duck and quail script.  There is a lot more since the guy is a writing machine.
I think it has the potential to be the best Duck and quail has to offer, straight up.  So if anyone would be interested in doing a page or two that would be fantastic, there are about thirty so far…

Just to clarify: a ‘page’ is a three or four newspaper-style panel strip, not a full on comic page. And I will happily allow repeated panels. So if you can draw The Duck and a toaster a couple of times you've got what it takes.

I've sent you a PQ (but since there's no notification for them I thought I'd better tell you here). Right now we kiwi types are being bombarded by the Rugby World Cup in all it's glory. No wonder I have a comic where rugby players are slaughtered in horrible ways …

meh - still haven't received your PQ aside from the nonfunctioning PQ notification.
 
 
so.  rugby.   because of this thread title, I'm seeing one team of very tough quails taking on the other team of larger but inebriated ducks . . .  not pretty, man.  not pretty

This could turn out pretty spectacular. A epic 30+ page Duck and Quail story? Fantastic! :D

Still looking for artists to draw parts 8-14, and 16 onward. No experience neccessary.
Remember, they are only 3 or four panel strips, and often you can get away with repeated panels.
