Two and counting ... still
by Breck

The funny thing about midterms, is that they kind of require a lot of time to get ready for.  Especially when you have 3 in one day.  Fun stuff.  At any rate, there will be more comics soon, I promise!

CONCERNING COLOR:  I'm still debating whether or not I want to keep adding color to these strips.  I'm thinking of simplifying it a bit, but we'll see.  Seeing as how the characters (and there are many more that you haven't seen, by the way) are named for their colors, I figure its important to keep something there.  I may switch it up to be more symbolic.  We'll see.  If my next strip has weird/different/no color, you'll know I liked the new method enough to at least try one or two that way.

Oh, also, you may have noticed that both Grey and White changed in appearance somewhat between Comic #1 and Comic #2.  This will continue to happen for a while.  I'm still trying to find the perfect look for these characters (and forgive me, but Grey looked like a dodo in #1.  They're extinct, dammit!).  We'll see where that goes.

Finally, expect a few more characters to be introduced at some point in the near future.  As well as (dare I say it) some semblence of a minor story to develop and resolve from time to time.  Are you excited yet?  I'm excited.  You should be too.

New Title!
by Breck

What was formerly known as "Grey Duck" is now known as "Animal Magnetism."  The new banners should show up soon.  In the meantime, there's a new comic up.  I imagine I'll have another one done in the next few days.

CONCERNING POLAR BEARS:  Okay, so you have a bear who lives in a wasteland, right?  His fur is a kind of whitish-yellow so he blends in with the snow and can mercilessly slaughter seals for his own nourishment, right?  The real genius here is that underneath their fur, their skin is black, so when global warming kicks in for good and the ice caps melt, they'll all be able to shave and blend in with the seals.  A bear in seal's clothing if you will.  Perfect.  Polar bears have nothing to fear from global warming.  Except drowning.

Title Change
by Breck

Well, apparently there is already a comic called "Grey Duck," so I'll be changing my title presently.  Such a shame, really.  I should really research these things before I jump into them.  Oh well, better now than down the road.  The characters won't be changing (not that anyone should be too attached at this point.  I've had what, one comic?), but I will be altering the title and banners accordingly.

CONCERNING SCHEDULES:  No, I'm not starting a regular schedule, but I will probably have time to do a new comic for tomorrow, and possibly again for Thursday.  Somehow I have more free time on midterm week.  Go figure.  Keep an eye out for it!

The Beginning
by Breck

Well, I've finally broken down and begun a webcomic, as you no doubt have noticed by now.  It is rather exciting to be drawing again.  I've been mostly dormant for the past year or two, working on my engineering degree.  Well, the artist in me got a bit restless, so here I am.  I have high hopes for this comic and these characters, and can't wait to see where this little strip takes me.

CONCERNING THE TITLE:  I'm not sure how widespread this reference is.  No doubt many of you have heard of and played the childhood game "Duck, Duck, Goose" at some point in your lives.  How recent that point in your lives was is your own business, but I trust that most of you are at least mildly familiar with said game.  Well, when I was growing up, for some reason we always played "Duck, Duck, Grey Duck."  Don't ask me why; I don't know.  Apparently "Grey Duck" is easier for toddlers to say or something.  Honestly, though, to me it seems that singling out the "grey duck" from the "normal ducks" is just encouraging racism at a young age.  I guess descriminating against geese isn't much better though.  Be that as it may, the title of this strip is inspired by this game.  Oh, also my main character is a grey duck.  And his name is "Grey Duck."  That might have something to do with it also.

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy reading this bit as much as I enjoy writing it.  With my work and class schedule the way it is, I can't promise any regular update schedule at this point, but I'll do my best to keep new material coming in fairly often.
