*This isn't really associated with SYNCOPATED in any way (aside form the fact that I'm responsible for it), but I'll post it here anyway, for lack of a better, more familiar venue.
I created this character, Despondent Duck, a while back. Over the past couple of years, I've put together a few mini comics featuring the duck, and hand-sold them at shows. I don't think I need to worry about him eclipsing SYNCOPATED necessarily, but good ol' Despondent Duck has become quite popular in his own right. I think I can attribute this popularity to the instant accessibility of stand-alone, cheap mini comics.
Anyway, the page below originally appeared in the 2005 SPX anthology. I recently colored it and created high-quality Ink-jet prints of it to sell last June at the MoCCA Art Fest.
