The inspiration for Clyde came from Duane's childhood when he would play at his grandparents farm with a plastic bucket over his head.

If you look closely at the third panel, you'll see that Duane hides his son's name, Zackie, into the drawing. He also hides the names Coral and Clayton into the ZED comic strip.

Floyd and Earl began their careers in vaudeville, a form of theatre that Duane wishes he could have been a part of.

All of these strips and more are collected in ZED: Top of the Line available for purchase here!
