The March of the Sinister Ducks

Here's an oddity from Way Back When: CRITTERS #23 (Fantagraphics, April 1988). This comic is an anthology of anthropomorphic (funny animal) comics, and features the work of guys like Stan Sakai (USAGI YOJIMBO), Sam Kieth (the MAXX), J.P. Morgan (FISSION CHICKEN), and... ALAN MOORE!

That's right, there's a story in this comic about a (fictional) band by perhaps comics greatest writer, Alan Moore. The band? The Sinister Ducks. In the comic, Moore relates the "Never-Before-Told True Story of the Sinister Ducks' Hatching, Brief Flirtation With Glory, and Subsequent Retirement."

It's pretty clever, but the REAL reason I wanted this comic when it came out: it has a "flexidisc" of a song by Alan Moore and David J. (bassist of the proto-Goth band BAUHAUS and the bands TONES ON TAIL and LOVE & ROCKETS) called "The March of the Sinister Ducks!"... CLICK HERE to hear it... it's a hoot!

So, now all you Alan Moore completeists have something to scrounge the back issuue bins for... Happy Hunting!

It must be Alan Moore day today. I went up to the Harrisburg Comicon and picked up Superman Annual #11 with that great Superman birthday story he wrote, plus a few Swamp Thing issues.
