I'm sorry to report that Aaron Johnson has announced that his photographer-centric comic strip "What the Duck" will cease daily publication. The Duck will go on in some form, just not on a daily basis.
Aaron made the announcement in a brief statement yesterday, which also happened to be the strip's fifth anniversary.
The cool thing about WTD was that it was not just about photography, it was for photographers. You had to actually be a photographer to get a lot of the jokes.
I'm going to assume that Aaron is now about to go on to great fame and greater wealth as the author of a strip targeted at a bigger population.
Even if he gets as famous as Garry Trudeau, of course, we photographers will always fondly remember his "Duck years." We'll always have our time together.
(Thanks to Rex Kersley)
P.S. ...And we'll always have the books.
