The Freewheelin' 2015

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Dec. 28, 2015



Two-thousand fifteen started off with Kroatz wishing everyone in the Drunk Duck forums “growth, satisfaction, and purpose, even if it comes with an almost equal amount of suffering and loss.” I do not believe any statement made in this last year comes as close to this to sum up the ...

ozoneocean at 12:00AM, Nov. 17, 2015

LISTEN!

Banes at 12:00AM, Oct. 15, 2015

Maybe this is what they mean when they talk about “suspense” vs. “horror”. Have ...

FRIDAY NEWSPOST - Inner Turmoil in Comics

HippieVan at 12:00AM, Oct. 17, 2014



Comics are a great medium for action-heavy stories, but showing inner conflict without massive walls of text can be difficult. The other day I picked up a very disappointing graphic novel version of “Frankenstein” - it read like an illustrated summary of the book, not reflecting any of the angst and ...

Hey guys, it's time for a little public service announcement about the 2012 Drunk Duck Awards! The ball is rolling, but it's a big heavy ball and needs lots of rollers. That's my hamfisted metaphor to describe how much community effort it takes to successfully pull off ...
