If they do make another book, they'll almost HAVE to put ‘Hie Qwalitie Comcs’ in it.

I really hope they start a new book, because I want a chance to show the world “Look, I don't suck this time!”

lol… You didn't see Dasien circa 2002-2003. There's a REASON those comics don't exist on the internet anymore.

But yeah, I see you're point. Personally, I think the mark of a good artist is when one is never satisfied with his or her work.

And I agree.

I do wonder what the theme of a new DD book would be. If I knew, I'd probably start planning a submission.

We asked for submissions and chose the best stuff among the submissions. Then, for various reasons, we let it sit for almost a year (so far).

I hope it becomes available soon.

I like the “Duck and Cover” name, but what would it be about?

A big ol' fight?

Or maybe parody. Since there are musical “covers” of other songs, we could do an entire book around parody.

Hrm. That's a shame. I'm sure the new book will be bigger and better though! ^_^

I'd do some custom stuff to be exclusive to the book if you guys do another one.

The fight thing has already been pretty much done to death here on DD (see “Fightsplosion”] , but I kinda like the parody idea. Of course, it could get dated very easily, and I doubt that everyone here has a perfect understanding of what “parody” consists of, but it would be great if we pulled it off.

Then again, fightsplosion tends to be a passing success at most. This is what, the third version?

Also, consider the state of Drunk Duck now, given the platinum studios deal, submissions will likely be filtered more, so I doubt finding those who have an understanding of parody would be difficult to find.

I'm not sure. And passing success is too generous. To put it bluntly, Fightsplosion literally fell apart after Zwuh went MIA. Thank god we got Radec to pick up the torch and continue the tourney.

Yeah, it may be a pinch difficult to find people who understand the concept of parody. And like you said, the extra filtering may make things difficult.

Oh, no, no, no!

The third book “Drunk With Laughter” will be the next one to be printed. Sorry if I wasn't clear on that.

Just not yet. Hopefully soon.

After the third book comes out, I'm sure we'll start a new one. It doesn't hurt to spitball some ideas about it. ;)

And I'm not sure how much more filtering there'd be. We always print great comics in the anthologies. Buy them if you don't believe me…or if you do! :)

As far as I know, the Drunk Duck anthologies aren't going to be just an extention of Platinum Comics, but will stay a showplace for the talented Duckers.

The only thing that might change is print quality and distribution. That's the stuff I don't know about, and the stuff I believe is still being worked out.

As for the filtering, surely you can at least tell us if cursing and violence will get filtered out. Are blood, gore, and four letter words a bit too much for a DD book?

If I recall the second book correctly (action stories), no, it's not too much. :) Although I'm sure there's a grey area there. If it's just gratuitousness for the sake of swearing and gore, that doesn't sound like a particularly strong comic to me. If it's part of a good story, then yeah it's probably fine.

I would say that there might be more restrictions on content like that if we do wider distribution. Probably nothing much worse than PG13 or so. Possibly PG. But that's all guesswork, and it could go in completely the other direction.

…or maybe a “Duck after Dark” anthology. ;)

“DD Black Label ”, it comes hand delivered to your door in a brown paper bag.

I'm a bit wary of the whole “parody” idea. Sure, the “filtering” process may help a bit, but I still wouldn't trust most people's definition of “parody.” I can see that getting extremely messy. (Although I do believe theRedDeath from Bad Guy High is the master at parody…at least in the superhero genre.)

How do you get into these books anyways? I vaguely hear something about submissions, but who are the guys actually doing the selecting? Just making sure if there are politics and popularity involved in it or not, since there are a good many talented artists who aren't that popular here on DD. Could the underdog have a chance?

It's usually chosen by the DD staff, and no it's not based on popularity or favoritism. The staff receives a bunch of entries and choose them based on a number of things. But being that this is printed in stores, they try to choose those who produce good-quality artwork (in other words, no sprite comics or anything similar). And usually, they try to pick a new crew of artists for each book they do so everyone gets a chance at being in the spotlight. Each book has a different theme to it, so it caters to everyone's speciality which gives new people a shot.
