What are the advantages of signing up for an account?

The Duck is free to comic creators, readers and fans. There are no fees at all. Really, it's all free.


Although you can browse the site and read comics, tutorials and the forums without an account, you will need to sign up in order to interact with other site members.


As a reader, you can:

  • Add to the tutorials and other member-generated content
  • ‘Friend' other members
  • Send other members PQs (personal messages)
  • Follow comics using the "Favorites" system (including the ability to bookmark comics to finish reading later)
  • Use your profile to recommend comics to others, share videos and talk about yourself
  • Post on the forums (both The Duck's general forums and those forums specific to comics)
  • Read A rated comics (if 18 or older)
  • Set up a Duck Store account to sell merchandise with your work on it
