Aaron Johnson’s What the Duck has been renamed to W.T. Duck and has a launch date of September 8. W.T. Duck first began as filler on Aaron’s band’s web site, but quickly gained a following. In December of 2006, he created “Syndication Bingo” to document his attempt to syndicate the strip. Universal signed him up for a development contract in October of 2007.
Universal has posted samples and describes the feature in this way:
Take a duck who works as a photographer amongst human beings with crying babies, bridezilla complexes and clueless clients and we’ll show you a portrait of “W.T.Duck,” the comic strip that quickly exploded in popularity with camera aficionados and comics fans on the Web and is now in syndication.
You can see more of W.T. Duck on Aaron’s web site.
UPDATE: Aaron’s been documenting the launch of his strip with animations. Below is his video regarding the name change and announcing some of the papers that have picked him up.
