Comic Strip: What The Duck

What The Duck is a comic created by Aaron Johnson. It is a daily comic strip printed in many syndicated newspapers, including the Toronto Star.

The character most often in the spotlight is a white duck who makes his living as a professional photographer. Other characters include differently-coloured duck photographers, each with a different backstory and personality, as well as human clients whose faces are never shown.


This comic provides example of:

  • Bread, Eggs, Breaded Eggs: While a duck attempts to find the right camera setting, it goes from "Moving Water mode" to "Pregnant Woman mode", and finally "Pregnant Woman In Moving Water mode".
