About

 The Pain.

 The Perversion. 

The Power. 

The DUCKS.

FredDuck, lead actor in a blockbuster movie, is actually a lonely individual ravaged by depression. At the end of the shooting, when cameras are off and he leaves the set, FredDuck drops his acting mask and proceeds to face his everyday pain: the inadequacy feelings and the depression that follow him everywhere.

“FredDuck is the first of the three Ducks and he was difficult for me to write. I had to remember feelings which I’d rather have liked to be left forgotten, but it was necessary since I had to bestow them on this poor four-eyes duck. Giulio was very happy with the screenplay, and I admit I couldn’t believe my eyes the first time I saw my words and feelings become lines and colors, so intense and heartfelt.”


In a grim autumn Sunday, we follow Paulan as he returns home from church. There, his wife and three young ducklings await, ready for their meek Sunday meal. Soon however the atmosphere becomes heavier and heavier as a woeful truth on the family slowly emerges from the uneasy thoughts of the wife, something that they can no longer pretend to ignore.

"PaulanDuck is a journey that I experienced myself, a slow descent in the subtle abyss that divides reality and fiction.” Marco Rincione says.

His brother Giulio adds: “Working on PaulanDuck has been a truly incredible experience. Marco gave the best of himself writing the story, and I definitely didn’t want to let him down. Entering in those grim atmospheres was exhausting, as much as having to listen to the thoughts of the characters without being the one who wrote them. I am really curious to hear readers opinions.”

Knowing to be near the end of his debauched existence, the powerful cardinal Duck One$ is visited by the most important member of the Rats, don Lino. In the final meeting between the two highest representatives of the two opposing universes -the ducks and the mice-, one last horror will unveil the truth about the cruel story of the Ducks.

FredDuck’sbitter pain, PaulanDuck’s ruthless savagery and One$’s decadent wealth: the DUCKS by the Rincione brothers are back together in one complete edition! 

Marco's words are relentless, heavy with pain and despair, with no hope to be found in the maze of the DUCKS’ messy, frightened thoughts. The author tries to show how naked and defenseless one feels when facing the fear that stops you cold, the panic without logic, emotions that can hardly be rationalized and explained to those who didn’t experience them directly. 

The DUCKS’s touching characterization is highlighted by Giulio's incisive and defining lines, with drawings that range from paint-like/watercolor to innovative graphic superimpositions, without snubbing a more traditional style, with dark palette colors that well fit the mood of the story. 

A personal commission by Giulio Rincione

DUCKS will be a pages 96 comic book: the high-quality visual standard quickly grabbed the interest of many users on social media, including a consistent group of foreign fans.

Giulio Rincione, art-name Batawp, is a comic book author and illustrator from Palermo. He first steps on the scene in 2012 with his first comic, “C”, published on “Verticalismi”. In 2013 he is among the founding members – together with Francesco Chiappara e Lucio Passalaqua – of the independent art collective “Pee Show”, for which he creates “Storielline” (2013), a small collection of three short stories. In 2014 he starts his work with Shockdom, illustrating the first volume of “Noumeno”, written by Lucio Staiano and Gianluca Caputo. The partnership with Shockdom soon gets to include all of “Pee Show” collective in 2015, and he completes the book “"Paranoiæ", both texts and drawings. Again for Shockdom he illustrates the second volume of “Noumeno”, always written by Lucio Staiano.
