Gevatter Watt Starduck

We will crank this out, soon... (Ryan, I promise thee :)


  1. Wonderful... in every way. I love the giant lightbulb on his hat, and the gun's design is perfect. Great stuff, once again.

  2. Unglaubliche Wumme!!! Alvar Edison würde Luftsprünge machen! Let there be light!

  3. Hey Florian , you did it again , i love those works about starduck

    congratulations dude!

  4. Hallo Florian,
    I must admit, I like your stuff a lot. One thing I do find a bit (only a little bit) annoying is your quest to be too clever with your character's names. You don't need that, they speak for themselves. But this is merely my own, personal opinion, so lump it, if you wish.
    Beautiful drawings, as always.


  5. Brilliant! I love the text! Another great piece!

  6. Shane, Thies, Jose, Uli! Many many thanks!!

    (Uli, I'm often pretty pretentious with the names. That's an old trouble of mine :)

  7. And thanks too, of course, to Tim!!

  8. I totally agree with Thies: Die Mega-Wumme ist der Knüller!

    (Und die Glühbirnen mit der weissen Outline sehen prima aus.)
