Why aren't you reading this?

Duncan and Mallory is going on the web, courtesy of Radio comics.

My friend the cyber-anthropologist and cartoonist Mel. White and the late author Robert Asprin first collaborated on Duncan & Mallory in the heady days of the 1980’s comic boom, leaving fans clamoring for more. Now, White will be creating new strips featuring these beloved characters- Duncan, the hapless adventurer, and Mallory, the small, vegetarian blue dragon.

I had a dead-tree copy of this as a little nerdling and loved the spine right out of the book. Meeting and getting to know Mel. as a slightly older nerdling was one of the happier moments of my congoing. As a fully fledged nerd, I am so happy that it is going up on the web.

I haven't seen Mel in years. She did a back-up story for one of my Usagi comics. It's good to hear she's still drawing.

I have been a fan of Robert's for quite awhile. He wrote an introduction for one of my books. I'm looking forward to reading more Duncan and Mallory. Thanks for the tip.

You're welcome! How cool is that? It's so strange for me- not only to be talking to the people that I've admired for years, but realizing that you all know eachother. :)

Great news for Mel! She was fun to work with (back in The Dreamery days). I always admired how she managed to juggle a full life and still produce so much stuff.
