“Bad vibe, dude. Good thing it ain’t ’bout ta happen ta us.”

“Ya reckon?”

Dude and Dude: Keith PoletiekUm … these guys?

“What tha … They can’t do that!!

“Looks ta me like they can, dude, an’ better than ‘can’, they did!

But we wuz here first!!

“Ya sure ’bout that?”

    Titles can’t be copywritten, but ideas can. How like your dudes are these dudes?

    • Amoeba says:

      Much more like street dudes than our Dudes – except that Poletiek is a Christian cartoonist so the edges have been rather severely filed. Not much likelihood that Poletiek even knows that our Dudes exist.

  2. Ruth Guillard says:

    Do backblogs count as evidence? I mean all of your past bloggage should show the-powers-that-be that you dudes deserve the name Dude and Dude. It’s obvious that your stuff differs from Poletiek’s strip and would attract a different readership, so maybe we should all quick-like fund your book.
