Author Al Fagaly

Author Details Super Duck was a comic book character created in 1943 for what was then MLJ Comics (now Archie Comics) by staff artist (1909-1963). His first appearance came in Jolly Jingles #10 (Summer, 1943). As his name implied, Super Duck (nicknamed "Supe") was a parody of Superman. The Super Duck comic book ended its run at 94 issues in 1960. His escapades would be reprinted in Archie Comics' digest series, Jughead Jones (at least as late as 1979), Laugh and Madhouse.
