Cursing Up a Storm

If I ever started drawing an actual comic strip, I think this guy would be a very popular character.

The Dinosaur Says, "Rawr."

No flames, but he has a handgun. I really like this guy.

I'm Not into Tatoos

But if I was, this would be the tatoo I'd get:

I showed this drawing to some friends, and they asked, "Why is the T-Rex breathing fire? No one seemed to be bothered by the fact that the T-Rex had handguns.

You guys have been waiting so long that you deserve NOTHING LESS than an EPIC FOUR PANEL COMIC:

I know I shoulda updated Duck With A Gun long before this. But LOOK AT this FOUR PANEL COMIC.

I mean, REALLY look at it.


I know you won't believe me when I say it, but the "L" replaced by a bullet WAS UNINTENTIONAL. I have NO IDEA how it got there

I had worked and reworked the panels of this cartoon until they finally looked right, and then, when they finally did... I noticed for the first time that I had somehow accidentally pasted a bullet over one of the "L"s.

Ah, whatevs. It LOOKS like I might have done it on purpose. That's good enough for me.

Folks, I'm trying to run Duck With A Gun on nothing more than Blogger, Windows Paint and an HP scanner that I picked up cheap at Costco.

I know y'all are mad at me for not updating this comic blog for so long, but, believe me, I'm doing the best I can.

He-Man and the Masters of the Bottle Blonds

He-Man has the worst hero hair. And that automatically makes him the worst hero.

Do you hear me, He-Man? I want you to know that it's not okay that you did that. Children watch your show.

Not. Okay.

Tax Day Tea Party!

There's going to be one of those "Tea Parties" in my town on Tax Day, and my friend Andy says I should attend it. But I don't think I want to, even though I totally got hosed on taxes this year. It's not that I don't care about huge bailouts for scoundrels while innocent people watch their savings vanish. It's just that I never believed in humanity's future, so what's the point in trying to make a difference?

But maybe I'll go anyway, because there is still one thing I do believe in:

The new season of Deadliest Catch starts today. It's pretty much the greatest show ever. In fact, it's the only show I ever want to watch. Sometimes I watch other shows just to get furious that those shows are not "Deadliest Catch." I don't want to watch "Lost," or "The Office," or "24," or "Heroes," or "30 Rock," or "American Idol." I want to watch "Deadliest Catch" and nothing else, and maybe it's time to take to the streets to spread the message.

And if you don't like "Deadliest Catch," I hate you forever.

The Singing Cowboy

No caption for this one. It's just a singing cowboy.

I didn't originally intend to have him sitting backwards on the horse. I just drew him too close to the edge of the paper so there was no room on the left side to fit in the horse's head.

Speaking of the horse's head, is it wrong that I drew it about as long as the top of the cowboy's head to the bottom of his torso?

And while I'm at it, I might as well point out that I accidentally drew this cowboy is playing guitar with his gloves on.

General Lee Makes an Inappropriate Remark

Here's Pickett's rejoinder.

Is this a mean cartoon? Now that I look at it, I think it might seem a little like I'm kicking General Pickett when he's down. But I like General Pickett, I really do.

Over the weekend, I watched the scenes of Pickett's Charge from the movie Gettysburg (someone posted the whole sequence, from Longstreet's planning it to the aftermath on YouTube), and I have to admit, I still get something in my eye when General Pickett is frantically asking what's happening to his boys. It's a pretty good movie. A little long, and not exactly fast-paced, but still, a pretty good movie.

I wish I could say the same for the sequel, "Gods and Generals." I wanted to like it, but, come on. If it isn't self-indulgence for a director to bring a Civil War movie to a screeching halt just to watch Jeff Daniels reciting the poetry of Richard Lovelace, then I don't know what self-indulgence is.

Miyamoto Musashi

I don't know much about Miyamoto Musashi except that he was a real master swordsman who lived during the seventeenth century. He was capable of feats with a sword that few others could even attempt.

And in my mind the only one worthy of weilding the impossible samurai silly sword.

Star Wars Fan Art!

Here's a picture I drew of Anakin Skywalker as played by Hayden Christensen

This is pretty much what I saw during every scene of Revenge of the Sith where Hayden Christensen was on the screen.

More Vercingetorix

I can't stop drawing Vercingetorix. Here he is teamed up with Batman*:

I bet if Batman had been fighting with the besieged in Alesia, Vercingetorix never would have had to surrender to Julius Caesar. And that would have changed the course of history!

* Names and likenesses of all persons, real and fictional, are used in a purely satirical manner.

No Girls Allowed!

I was watching a thing about the Battle of Alesia on the History Channel, and I was seized with a burning desire to draw Vercingetorix the Gaul. He's got that huge mop of hair. Also, his name is fun to say.

I drew some hills in this one, so this cartoon actually has background!

Three paragraphs down on this page explains why I drew Vercingetorix not letting any girls into his "club.".

The First Duck with a Gun I ever Drew

It was many years ago. My friend, Ben Hatke, and I used to draw cartoons about animals and Star Trek characters on little squares of paper that we would stick in the office "Grievances" box.

One day I drew a duck. Then I looked at the expression and thought he looked kinda guilty. So I drew a little smoking gun for him to hold. This is that drawing:

I don't know why, but I really liked my picture of a duck with a gun, and since then I have drawn many, many ducks with guns.

I don't have a Grievance Box in my office anymore, but I've been wanting to start a blog to post my cartoons. I was talking to Ben about it the other day while I was drawing another duck with a gun, and it occurred to me(or maybe Ben had the idea--it's a little fuzzy in my memory) that "Duck with a Gun" would be a good name for a cartoon blog.

So, here it is.
