I only read this comic today despite seeing the title pop up a bunch, because I couldn't for the life of me figure out what a comic named 'Question Duck' would be about.

It turns out it's about the greatest duck ever.

Please keep making us smile. <3

Awww!!! In the first panel, the duck is either scared or very excited about the movie!

Dear Psudonym,

Where can I find such an epic duck?


Immer, Sep 25, 2010, 03 pm

What a fantastic webcomic. I can't believe it took me so long to find out about this.

Aw, I was actually going to be watching this movie right now, but I couldn't go yet...
I love your comic!

i want question duck to ask me a question D:

rurui, Sep 26, 2010, 04 pm

I can't remember exactly who, but it orginated as an hypothetical city, a city that was perfect in every way and held a lot of knowledge. Then it got sinked for whatever reasons.

Then people took it seriously and well, things started getting weird.

For some reason, that first panel of the owl's face amuses me to no end.

Question Duck don't talk in theaters!
Silly Duck!

Mangaka_Yuki, Sep 27, 2010, 07 pm

That was the best movie of all time ever. Oh wait, sorry, I thought the owl was Scott Pilgrim.

devnet, Oct 10, 2010, 06 pm

I love that movie, but when i went to watch there were toddlers. Which ended up being funny when the mouse/owls were clawed with epic talons of death. :|

Anyways, I'm almost 35% sure that Atlantis was Greek in origin (that or Roman) and that it was sorta like Pompeii in that a disaster sunk it.

Uhm... probably: it was the perfect city but it's perfection caused the gods jealousy and it sunk to become part of Poseidon/Neptune's realm... but that is all bs-ing on my part.

Its a fictional city made up by Plato for his philosophical discussions. And it wasnt perfet, they were the evil, distopian empire that ruled with an iron fist and were generally sucky to be around.
The perfect city was Athens.

Wohooo! Watched that movie while I watched my neighbors' daughter. Best part was that she didn't just skip to her favorite parts like she normally does!
I was soooo excited since I loved the book series when I was younger!
I was really curious how they were going to make it into a children's movie since it gets pretty disturbing in some parts.... they did well. :)

OMG! That totally reminds me of when I saw it! You know, I only went cause my friend read the books and really wanted to see it. But I loved it! And that was my fav scene! Awesome re-creation!

actually it was Aristotle

muffinpoodle, Jul 28, 2011, 03 am

Plato didn't invent Atlantis, he retold a story that he'd heard. It's a much older legend than Plato. Actually the most likely origin is that it's based on a real island with a real city that really did get destroyed in a single day and night of misfortune. The island I think is called Minoa, and there's evidence of a volcanic eruption and a tidal wave that destroyed the city and killed thousands. There are bits of architecture and things left behind that proven that the Minoans really did have very advanced technology for the time and a very rich culture. I can't remember details, but I watched a documentary about it one time. They found remains of the city and everything, and scientifically recreated what must have happened on the day it was lost.

@Rosii94 It actually was Plato. He mentioned hearing the story of Atlantis of an Egyptian High Priest in Timaeus and Critias.

Speaking of real island, the dimensions of the island of Atlantis are given in the story. If you divide those dimensions by 100 (IIRC), you get the dimensions of the island of Santorini, a volcano which suffered a paroxysmal eruption; blowing away most of its mass. Santorini is in the Aegean, so the disaster would have seriously affected Crete, where there is evidence of Minoan civilisation. Presumably, the Egyptians kept the story, being one of the less-affected civilisations in the region, and generations later Plato took it back to the vicinity of the Aegean. Either Plato or the Egyptians could have mistranslated the dimensions of the island.
