Evan and Dan are just two friends try to survive high school. Made harder when your teachers are supervillains and your homework is to take over the world. This comic started out as a zany AffectionateParody of the superhero genre, but has [[CerebusSyndrome become more serious]] in recent strips. It still manages to retain much of its earlier humor, though! Check it out at [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Bad_Guy_High/ Drunk Duck.com]]
