Friday Funnies Presents: Dick Duck, Duck Dick #10 > Jim Engel
First appeared in The Comic Reader #175, December 1979
Jim Engel: This strip marked the only “physical” cross-over between the two COMIC READER funny animal strips, DICK DUCK, DUCK DICK, and BULLET CROW- FOWL OF FORTUNE (by Chuck Fiala). Dick was referred to in BULLET CROW, but never appeared in the strip itself. Physically, when they appeared in TCR, they were side by side, with DD,DD on the left and BC on the right.
Bullet Crow’s appearance here was essentially the punchline, because Chuck’s hero and strip were less “realistic” (if that makes sense)…more slapstick-y than DD, and Dick had to be rescued by Bullet Crow, who was completely inept…
While Dick Duck & Bullet Crow didn’t appear together in their strips (save this once), they were linked in people’s minds by their TCR affiliation, the friendship of their creators, and this ultra-rare T-SHIRT sold by STREET ENTERPRISES during their original publication run.
