He also did commercial work for Entertainment Weekly, and contributed to Dennis Eichhorn's autobiographical comic book series 'Real Stuff'. Collections of his work, such as 'East Texas: Tales from behind the Pine Curtain' (1988) and 'I Can't Tell you Anything' (1993) are a showcase for Dougan's talent for storytelling. Among the stories included is the famous 'Chicken Trilogy', his ongoing war with vehicles, and a very weird but compelling tale about his job in an ice cream parlor. Michael Dougan has also been working on an animated cartoon, 'The Dangwoods', for MTV's Liquid Television.
