EVERYBODY'S FAVORITE DUCK
by Gahan Wilson
The celebrated cartoonist/comic novelist Gahan Wilson presents a thundering
and uproarious adventure—with literature's nastiest bad guys and most heroic
good guys battling to death in today's New York.
When the Professor (the fiendishly brilliant British Napoleon of Crime), the
Mandarin (the cruelly diabolical Chinese mastermind), and Spectrobert (the
blackheartedly crafty French rogue) meet in the Dungeon of Horror at Madame
Grimmaud's Wax Museum it leads to the police department being baffled, the
FBI bewildered, and the CIA being entirely up a tree. What deviltry are they
plotting? Whose fate hangs in the balance? How can the forces of justice stymie
their plans? Above all, what is their connection with famed cartoonist Art
Waldo's universally adored creation, Quacky the Lucky Duck?
Aid to the Forces of Good comes in the form of the formidably brilliant Enoch
Bone (who bears more than a passing resemblance to one of fiction's greatest
sleuths) and his irrespressibly hard-boiled sidekick John Weston, when the pair
are forced out of retirement. The wily villains subject Bone and Weston to
Spectrobert's demonically booby-trapped restaurant kitchen, the Mandarin's
mutilation-laden torture tunnels, and the Professor's Flying Purple Cloud of
Destruction, in their pursuit of domination.
Will the combination of Bone's laser-sharp mind and Weston's quick
trigger-finger be enough to undo the evil-doers? A breathtakingly riotous climax
at the New Jersey theme park, Waldo World, holds the answer.
