At least since the movie Pulp Fiction, I’ve known that a story can be both ultra-violent and hilarious. A great tale can be gory and bawdy without being dumb and forgettable. And in the case of Dead Duck, the debut graphic novel by Jay Fosgitt, the characters can simultaneously be full of life and in a state of gruesome decay. They can stare Death in the face and laugh heartily.

What is Dead Duck? In a nut shell, or egg shell rather, it’s a small water fowl that is…well…not living. Raised and emp

Dead Duck, by Jay P. Fosgitt

Welcome to Rigormortitropolis, the end of the line and home to RIP, Inc, J.P Yorick’s company.

I got this book from the Good Reads giveaways a while back. It finally came up in my stack of books to read. I like the concept and ideas in the comic, and the book is really a collection of a series of comics around Dead Duck (like a TP collection of a comic series). I like the graphics and the main character. However, the read through was just OK for me. It bounced all over the place and there are a lot of super short stories. I would like to see more or longer drawn out story development with ...more
