SEP090577 Dead Duck gn sc 7"x10", 148pg, color $12.95
by Jay P. Fosgitt
'Dead Duck and Zombie Chick deliver the deceased to J.P. Yorick, better known as the Grim Reaper, while dealing with unruly dead folks, grumpy deities, and historical snafus! MATURE THEMES' Looks pretty non-anthro apart from DD&ZC, and the latter is pretty much indistinguishable from a lady in a teeny black bikini with a few stitches and an orange triangle in place of a nose and mouth, but that's good enough for me. Fosgitt has posted dozens of Dead Duck pages at http://apecmx.com/deadduck/?tag=jay-fosgitt; have a look. I did, and decided to order it. Have a look even if you're ordering it--the author's notes are interesting. And yes, this appears before Antarctic Press, but I can't help it if Diamond has a shaky grasp of the alphabet.
