EVERYBODY'S FAVORITE DUCK
by Gahan Wilson

The celebrated cartoonist/comic novelist Gahan Wilson presents a thundering and uproarious adventureŚwith 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.

Everybody's Favorite Duck
