Klonoa64, Nov 17, 2010, 11 pm

yes and no at the exact same time...

on a side note, not only does the duck ask many questions, he is also an airbender ROFL too much avatar for me

Love that first panel. "Oh dear God, please no...!"

Even in a cloud of exotic spices, Question Duck still delivers.
Can imagine anything else that Rowling comes up with will not measure up to Harry Potters success. Though it is possible.

I think that people will always compare future works to Harry Potter, so it's likely they will be comparing to that. She's an awesome writer though, so I'm sure she'll do well even if her next works aren't "hits" compared to HP.

And I love the second panel. It's whimsical.

Probably not... usually when author's first books are big hits, their other writings are either pretty unknown, or don't exist at all. I'd be surprised if she did write something else, though what would she write about? :o

CONTAGION

Holy crap, Duck's insatiable curiosity for random trivia is also contagious!! So I guess the comic is now going to be "Question Merchant". Or heck, maybe even "Question Duo" if Duck tags along with Merchant.

I'd like some info on this setting. I find it very curious. Are they spices like RazorD9 mentioned? Where is that? Is that really how their market works? I mean, wouldn't it get blown away by the wind?

@BM03
Actually, that's maybe a slight misreading of the comic probably more to do with my attempt at experimenting with the panel border. There are "three" panels but the cloud of spices was supposed to overbear even the panel walls. The speaker in the third panel is still meant to be Question Duck who is so far, still the only audible voice this entire comic has.

The setting is a fairly generic spice market in India, no specific region or city intended this time. Just look up Indian Spice Market in google and you should come up with a fascinating wealth of imagery.

Spices set up like this are actually heavier and more sturdy than they would appear. But since this is a cartoon and we have a talking duck... well. Sneezing is very very powerful.

According to the J.K Rowling website (that she updates herself), she will eventually start a Harry Potter Encyclopedia, though she says that will take at least ten years to complete.

Also, I don't know if I made this up myself or someone told me, but for some reason I'm under the impression that she doesn't want to write another novel because she's afraid it'd have so much reception because of the fact that she wrote Harry Potter.

But I know that she doesn't want to stop working. Whether that means writing or some other type of work, I don't know, but countless times she states on her website that she would never stop working.

The last panel with the spice cloud is so pretty..

Klonoa64, Nov 18, 2010, 10 pm

I KNEW IT

THE DUCK WAS AN AIRBENDER

BM03 (Guest), Nov 19, 2010, 02 pm

@psudonym

I had not noticed the third panel line. Maybe if the panel line was still slighting visible behind the cloud...?

I guess this means no Question Merchant now...

Thanks a lot for the info!

It recently came out the she had written another book under a pseudonym.

It did okay, but didn't light the world on fire until it came out that J.K. Rowling was the writer.

It still wasn't as popular as Harry Potter, but it was reasonably successful
